Politics and Populace (other bloggers)

A Keyboard Near ::: "Our military has been neutered by the King who crows about being Commander in Chief - who never served a day in the military.

By his own proclamation he intends to establish a civilian force that is stronger and better armed than the military.

You will be vulnerable and defenseless because you have been disarmed by your "elected" rulers.

Any clue who will comprise the King's guard?

They soon may be quartered and fed by you in your homes.

The worst is yet to come."

A Keyboard Far ::: "we don't protect people, we take away their guns. We attack others so they attack us. We send children to battle promising them a future. Ugh... and then we never care for them. We create bigger bombs to bomb others so they can bomb us. Enemies don't just exist, they are created by governmental institutions to make for sale: guns, bombs, experimental medicine and people.

Politics equals fame as big as any rock star and comes with all the perks. You get to smile while holding babies and grabbing ass because, like some demi-god, you have the permission to do as you please because you were elected by the people and for the people and they're paying you as you hide behind congratulatory signs of 'Just say no' campaigns and 'the war on drugs.'"

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
