It’s not the Media. It’s us.

Last week I went to a town hall by Rep. John Curtis. I’m not a Republican, but I appreciate his efforts to listen to all of his district. I like his pragmatism. And I hold him to a high standard. That’s why I fact checked him on one important point.

On Trump and the Worth of Souls

“Well, he’s just being honest. If things are so great in those countries, why would anyone try to leave?”

As long as we’re valuing honesty, let’s take a look at the context.

Fighting for Peace

How can we put the United back in the United States? It’s unrealistic to think any two people (let alone a whole nation) could truly agree on everything. But can we learn how to understand and respect each other? Can we promise to protect each other’s rights?

None of the Above

“A vote for ______ is a vote for ______!” Both sides are saying it, both with hefty helpings of shame or fear. So why cast a protest vote if your candidate can’t win?¬†It all¬†depends on where you stand.

Fair and Balanced — really!

Political discussions with my family are crazier than professional wrestling matches, minus the chair throwing and spandex. As a self-appointed referee, I can truly appreciate a moderate point of view. That’s why I enjoy reading poligazette.com so much, I decided to donate a little design work.

Responsibility

My kids have asked what the word means, and my best definition is this: Doing the right thing even when it’s hard, or owning the consequences.

Our economy is a wreck, says Mrs. Obvious, and I’m scared. I don’t think a bailout will solve anything. I don’t think punishments will solve anything. And for all I can see, the natural consequences would be painfully suffered by all.

2008 Presidential Race

I usually try to stay out of the political blogging arena, but that certainly doesn’t mean I lack an opinion on this whole thing. I’ve been following all of the candidates closely from the start of this race, and my, what a long race its been — and now a close one, too.

If I were a mutant, I know my super power would probably have something to do with photoshop — and now is the time to use it.

Disclaimer: This is NOT an endorsement for or against Ron Paul — though I have run into a few spam-happy Ron Paul fans who just may be evil mutants. I just couldn’t help myself.

I will bring you hope, old friend. And I ask only one thing in return: don't get in my way.
