 Fighting fire with fact

Facts are not subjective; facts are not relative.

They aren’t different for you and me, they just are.

 

Conservatives, liberals, anarchists, communists (oops, “communist” is redundant with “liberal”). There seems to a blog for every political stripe, more often than not posted by some windbag who likes to hear himself talk.

 

While I can pontificate with the best of them, however, I’m here with a goal, however quixotic it may be, to promote rational public policy.

 

“Opinion” shouldn’t drive public policy, and “feelings” don’t mean squat. In my newspaper columns and my regular feature as Charlotte Gun Rights Examiner on examiner.com, you will find arguments backed up by cold, hard fact.

 

Facts are not subjective; facts are not relative. They aren’t different for you and me, they just are. By contrast, “truthiness” isn’t cute, it’s a pandemic.

 

“Studies” with tainted methodology designed to, in the words of one literature review, “validate preordained political conclusions,” do not represent fact, but instead propaganda. Wherever possible, we should expose mendacity for what it is.

 

When I argue a position, I promise facts, not opinions. Where possible, data will derive from impartial sources rather than advocacy groups. The idea is to provide information in the age of disinformation.

 

Oh, yes: If that pisses you off … too bad.
