Misnomers

The legislation called “The Inflation Reduction Act” is one of the best examples of a misnomer in recent history. Why not introduce the “Crime Elimination Act” or the “Stop Fatherless Homes Act?”

All politicians realize if they called many of their bills what they really represented, the people would call them out on it.

The point is, when something doesn’t sound right, question it. Think…

Entertainers and Politics

For over 20 years, there has been a growing trend for those in the entertainment world to willingly share their views on political and societal issues. In my opinion, they may keep their opinions to themselves.

We go to concerts, movies and the theater to escape the real world for a short while. Life is still waiting for us after the show. We want the world to be right for just a couple of hours.

Only an outsized ego believes we care about the entertainer’s politics. Just my humble opinion…

Be Strong Enough

Why are we tearing each other apart over political differences?

All of us have beliefs and convictions. It’s not a threat to allow others to challenge us. Living in an echo chamber, aligning yourself only with those who agree with you is dangerous and limits open-mindedness. Be confident. Be strong enough to accept others where they are…

My Interview With Vic Feazell, Part 1

Vic Feazell was the District Attorney in McClennan County when he received a call from the renowned Texas Rangers.

Unified…

How do you get two people who see things differently to come together? You don’t, because it’s already happening. No one is in perfect alignment with anyone else. God made us different from each other in every way. I’m guessing He likes variety, but I doubt He likes seeing his children at each other’s throats. Recognize our differences, even within our own families. Embrace the differences and unify. We are better together…

Why?

What has brought us to this place where we politicize everything? Why are we doing this? Step away from the politics and focus on family and friends. There is a lot of good in the world, but you might miss it if you are looking for a fight…
