My Way or the Highway!

What a crappy attitude and outlook has commandeered the public discourse of the day. I have sometimes posted comments or sent along videos on Facebook, and have been creamed for it. I've been called a racist, a bigot, a hater, a self-righteous jackass.

Now mind you, I've not posted anything like that, but because someone has a viewpoint different than mine, I'm labeled with vicious, demeaning descriptors. An example was posting something that said if you can protest or riot in person, your can vote in person. It was a VOTING issue I was bringing up. Whoa, did that unleash the comments. A number of people, some I don't know very well, hijacked the comments and away we go...hater, bigot, what are you doing to change the world, etc. The fight then starts between the people commenting on my post!

My point today is this... If you disagree with me or anyone else, especially on social media, please use comments that contain facts and not conjecture, none of the "your truth" fallacies out there (it's either true or not, not just what you believe). Could we bring back true debate and not hate? If you jam something down my throat, with multiple meme's, videos and clicks to other sites, instead of talking to me, I'm most likely not going to be able to even cover the years worth of reading references you sent!

I totally agree that we all should do research, find the truth but also get off your duff and get out there and work to right some of the wrongs you so vehemently describe. I've worked with the youth in my local county for years through speaking in the high schools and through the Civil Air Patrol youth cadet program. I've worked with ROTC, the veterans etc. Always bringing a message how to help and not hinder. What are you doing?

Race and income are not the only issues of the day. The family disintegration, the diminishing principles that God stated in the Bible like, "the one that doesn't work, doesn't eat", or, "the one that doesn't provide for the family is worse than an infidel." The loss of incentive to work, to get ahead, to provide, to help one's neighbor, to not touch what is not yours... all are imperative to return to our society and to maintain.

Adhering to these five principles, no matter what your background, race or influences will change the world...1) Integrity First, 2) Sexual Purity, 3) Sobriety, 4) Service Before Self and 5) Excellence in All You Do. Simple to say, hard to do. Too bad, so sad, just do it!

A recent conversation with a young man who was complaining that things were getting worse, said that,  "The remedy all starts at the top." I said, "No it doesn't. It all starts at the bottom...with the family." If our young people don't have a sense of value, belonging, importance and future...they will end up the problem and not the solution. So get busy people. Get involved. Suck it up, Buttercup and get going!
