Both Right and Left in America have problems. The problem with American Conservatism is that, though it holds to effective values, it uses “tradition” as its defense, rather than wisdom. Not most Conservatives, but many are gruff or condescending on their soapboxes; few Conservatives care. The problem with Liberalism is that it over-prioritizes “permission to play” and under-prioritizes survival through wisdom, self-control, and hard work. Liberals demand more while disallowing what it takes to get more—the Old Testament Pharaoh’s “more bricks, no straw” policy is a prime example. Both Conservatives and Liberals talk about rights without responsibility: the right to work without the responsibility to work, the right to carry guns without the responsibility of high school militia training.
Obama was a learning experience. Elections can have consequences that are not as easy to see as was thought. The Boomers didn’t teach their children about politics. Now, the children are learning the hard way. At least they are learning. Never try, never learn; cheers to trying! Gen Y’s mistakes have taught them more than the Boomers taught them.
Hillary has time on her side, so to speak. Ted Cruz has the truth on his side. Scott Walker has the notoriety of being attacked by Obama and speaks clearly on issues. Rand Paul has a “strategy”, so he told Rush, but the strategy seems to unite Americans in the middle, rather than The People’s Party strategy, which is to promote political values without compromise, yet allow opt-outs. Other nonsense Republicans are tossing their hats in the presidential ring when they should already know that they can’t win.
Police violence is not increasing, but the reports finally are. Public outrage is overdue. Domestic conflict with police could increase soon. Much has gone on behind the scenes that’s unacceptable. Governments have focused on making the police strong, rather than instilling a police culture of humble strength—quicker takedowns and fewer regrets. The police need Jesus. We all do. We’ll find him, one way or another.
The “Memories Pizza” shop in Walkerton, IN drew much attention the week of April Fools’. The controversy will have ramifications that reach far beyond the issues themselves. This could be the beginning of arousing and informing the “Religious Right” in America.
Rush Limbaugh explained that many people are unaware of how the press conducts and exploits interviews. ABC’s channel 57 may receive some backlash from their own industry, or even their own affiliates, as this story has likely reduced general trust that the public has often placed in the press.
Many threats and predictable responses this week. It would be easier for authorities to identify threats if they were allowed to interpret normal people as having an understandable sense of humor, interpret feisty, angry people, who are itching for a fight as possible, unplanned “showdown confrontation” instigators, and wanna-Be’s as willing to tout the appearance of power that they don’t have. Law enforcement’s inability to identify these three different types of people leaves them vulnerable and easy to distract. While the TSA is busy patting-down a 10 year old, airport staff can smuggle box cutters past security.
Balling-up and easily being provoked to “lock-down” mode makes one an easier target. The way to overcome threats, whether disease or violence, is for authorities to keep joy, a sense of humor, wit, ingenuity, and to stay clever. Police and security must learn to differentiate between ordinary people who may have an ill sense of humor and danger threats who have no joy whatsoever and are constantly looking for a reason to feel “important”, even at the expense of someone else. · · · →
