21st Century: Query 137 (Stephen Spender)

“There is a certain justice in criticism. The critic is like a midwife - a tyrannical midwife.”

~ Stephen Spender, English poet, novelist and essayist who, in his work, concentrated on themes of social injustice and the class struggle.
In what way can critics be tyrannical and yet fair?

21st Century: Query 136 (Nikki Haley)

Two very different quotes from Nikki Haley, an American diplomat and politician who served as United States Ambassador to the United Nations from January 2017 to December 2018. As a Republican, she served as Governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017 and three terms as a representative in the legislature:
1. “I want someone who is going to hold Republicans accountable, and I want someone who is going to make a difference, not just for our party but for every person they represent in the country.” ~ Nikki Haley, explaining why she would not be supporting Donald Trump in 2016 (CNN, February 17, 2016)

2. “In every instance I dealt with him, he was truthful.” ~ Nikki Haley, explaining why she now supports Donald Trump (Today Show Interview with Savannah Guthrie, November 12, 2019)

In your opinion, why would Haley change her mind so drastically about Trump? How does Haley’s claim of Trump’s truthfulness match up with his 13,000 + lies tracked by Politifact since January 20, 2016? Also, a…

Part 1: Query 232

Qu. Whether such committee of inspectors should not be changed every two years, one-half going out, and another coming in by ballot?

21st Century: Query 135 (Steve Jobs)

“I want to put a ding in the universe.”
~ Steve Jobs, American business magnate, entrepreneur, industrial designer, investor, and media proprietor. He was the chairman, chief executive officer (CEO), and co-founder of Apple Inc. Jobs certainly followed through and made his “ding in the universe,” but how do you plan to create your ding?

Part 1: Query 231

Qu. Whether the directors should not be excluded from sitting in either House, and whether they should not be subject to the audit and visitation of a standing committee of both Houses?

21st Century: Query 134 (George Washington)

21st Century: Query 133 (Sidney Poitier)

“I lived in a country where I couldn’t live where I wanted to live. I lived in a country where I couldn’t go where I wanted to eat. I lived in a country where I couldn’t get a job, except for those put aside for people of my color or caste.”

~ Sidney Poitier, Bahamian-American actor and film director. He received two nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actor, winning one, by which he became the first black actor to win the Award.
Poitier, who turns 93 today, lived his youth and middle adulthood during a time in the U.S. when Blacks were routinely barred from public places set aside for Whites. Discrimination was overt, even in the north, where it was “understood” where Black people could congregate.

In 2020, how has the treatment of minorities changed since the 1930’s-1960’s?

What is different now? What has remained the same?

Part 1: Query 229

Qu. Whether that, which increaseth the stock of a nation be not a means of increasing its trade? And whether that which increaseth the current credit of a nation may not be said to increase its stock?

21st Century: Query 132 (Mary, Queen of Scots)

~ Mary, Queen of Scots
How might this claim be true? False?

Part 1: Query 228

Qu. Whether it is not worth while to reflect on the expedients made use of by other nations, paper-money, bank-notes, public funds, and credit in all its shapes, to examine what hath been done and devised to add to our own animadversions, and upon the whole offer such hints as seem not unworthy the attention of the public?

21st Century: Query 131 (Jim Cantore)

“Oh, you know it’s gonna suck when I come to town.”

~ Jim Cantore, American Meteorologist for The Weather Channel.

Cantore has been lauded for his ability to “break down” complicated weather events into terms the average viewer can understand. Cantore is often selected to go to report on severe weather events. Since the ratings for the Weather Channel increase during these events, Cantore has become a recognizable figure. In particular, viewers’ association of Cantore’s presence with incoming or in-progress severe weather events became so strong that the Weather Channel lampooned it in a one-minute 2011 commercial spot in which Cantore goes on a beach vacation, panicking nearby beachgoers and locals who take his presence as an ominous sign.

In recent years, it seems that our weather has become more volatile; what with stronger hurricanes, droughts, flooding, and severe winters, perhaps Mr. Cantore should be cloning himself.

How have weather patterns changed in the past 10 years, both …

QQOTD: The Webmaster of The Querist

“If Donald Trump loses re-election in November 2020, he will grant a mass pardon to everyone in U.S. prisons, including robbers, rapists, and murderers.”
~ The Webmaster of The Querist website
Given what we know about this President, how plausible is this assertion?
If the unthinkable would ever occur, what effect might the mass release of dangerous prisoners have on the U.S. and the police forces around the country?
Whether in 2020 or 2024, what other dangers can we expect during the transition/lame duck period (November 4, 2020 – January 20, 2021)?
Could Trump simply invalidate the results of the election through executive action? Why or why not? If he’s successful, what would this mean for Democracy and the rule of law?
Historical queries (To be determined in the near or far future):
If Trump was not re-elected, did he pardon incarcerated prisoners?
Which of his cronies did he pardon?
What effect might these pardons have on our justice system?
What other acts of revenge did Trump wr…

~ Jay Leno is an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, and former late-night television host. After doing stand-up comedy for years, he became the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno from 1992 to 2009. Beginning in September 2009, Leno started a primetime talk show, titled The Jay Leno Show, which aired weeknights at 10:00pm ET, also on NBC. After The Jay Leno Show was canceled in January 2010 amid a host controversy, Leno returned to host The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 1, 2010. He hosted his last episode of The Tonight Show on February 6, 2014. That year, he was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. Since 2014, Leno has hosted Jay Leno’s Garage.
In this context, what does Leno mean by “Extortion Day”?

In general, what is he saying about prescribed gift-giving? Do you agree or disagree? Why?

Part 1: Query 226

Qu. Whether the bank proposed to be established in Ireland, under the notion of a national bank, by the voluntary subscription of three hundred thousand pounds, to pay off the national debt, the interest of which sum to be paid the subscribers, subject to certain terms of redemption, be not in reality a private bank, as those of Englandand Scotland, which are national only in name, being in the hands of particular persons, and making dividends on the money paid in by subscribers?

QQOTD: Chauncey DeVega (Salon)

“Donald Trump is an authoritarian and an autocrat. For him and others of such ilk, violence is political currency in the form of raw power. Autocrats and authoritarians such as Trump are de facto crime bosses who just happen to be leaders of their respective countries.”
~ Chauncey DeVega, Salon (28 January 2020)
How on target is DeVega about Donald Trump?
Is Trump a sociopath(Psychology Today)? If so, what sociopathic characteristics does he exhibit?
Are voters on both the right and the left on track to re-electing an authoritarian President? Why or why not?
Which candidate(s) on the left exhibit(s) troubling authoritarian characteristics? How do they compare with Trump’s?
How might President Trump’s revenge tour (Chicago Tribune) after acquittal in the Senate Impeachment Trial shape the future of the United States?

21st Century: Query 129 (Helen Keller)

“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”
~ Helen Keller, American author, political activist, and lecturer 
What is the late Helen Keller, blind and deaf since infancy, saying about the importance of friendship?

How might her visual and aural disabilities inform her understanding of light and dark on a literal level? On an abstract level?

Part 1: Query 225

Qu. Whether the rise of the Bank of Amsterdam was not purely casual, for the security and dispatch of payments? And whether the good effects thereof, in supplying the place of coin, and promoting a ready circulation of industry and commerce may not be a lesson to us, to do that by design which others fell upon by chance?

21st Century: Query 128 (Dwight D. Eisenhower)

“This world of ours... must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.”

~ Dwight D. Eisenhower was an American army general and statesman who served as the 34th president of the United States from 1953 to 1961. During World War II, he was a five-star general in the Army and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He was responsible for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of Normandy in 1944–45 from the Western Front.
In 2020 discourse, how are we failing to cultivate “a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect”?

How might we regain these positive traits?

The Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump: Rear Admiral Barry Black’s Opening Prayers – January 16 - February 5, 2020

This is actually Day 8 of the Impeachment Trial _______________________
[In his opening prayers,Rear Admiral Barry BlackUnited States SenateChaplain, appears to be sending important and urgent messages to the Senate jury. The highlighted sentences seem to emphasize his main points as the trial unfolds. Given that several Republican Jurors – Mitch MConnell and Lindsey Graham specifically – revealed long before the Impeachment Trial began that they were not “impartial jurors,” one can only conclude that the chaplain’s admonitions were directed to them and others who would corrupt the proceedings, which, presumably, could have included some Democratic Jurors, who, at least had the good sense to keep to their own counsel. History will judge how well the majority jurors have conducted this trial that offered no witnesses or supporting documents.]
Day 1: (1/16/2020) No prayer – Rear Admiral Barry Black was attending a prayer breakfast.
Day 2 Prayer: (1/21/2020) (Incomplete transcript of Chapl…
