Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. - Winston Churchill
Here is an exchange that did not take place in the pages of The Union. On 7 November 2013 the newspaper published Ms Nancy Eubanks’ gratuitous attack on the Tea Party and former Sheriff Richard Mack who recently spoke in Nevada County. The local media outlets covered the well-attended event sponsored by the Nevada County Republican Women Federated. Ms Terry McLaughlin of the NCRWF immediately submitted a response to Ms Eubanks' article three separate times – McLaughlin’s 7nov13 letter was followed by a shorter letter and then one Other Voices piece on 18 November. The Union has seen fit not to publish any of these nor any other communications that would serve to correct the record of the apparently untouchable Eubanks’ charges. The Union’s policy vindicates Eubanks through silencing all answers. As a public service, RR has now stepped into this breech.
