We often view the use of the word, creed, in a religious context, and rightfully so; but at its essence, a creed is a belief that is fundamental, a guiding principle. This Podcast is dedicated to the principle of freedom and liberty. The antithesis of freedom and liberty is oppression. The right to be free is a fundamental belief in American culture, and must never be taken for granted or abused. Therefore, the creed of freedom is more important than any other principle or belief...indeed, perhaps the most important.
We live in a very open country, to be sure. And for that reason, the "powers that be" need to ensure that they have the safety of the American people as a top priority. Unless we want to end up like Israel, and experience a terror attack that dwarfs 9/11, our borders must be protected.
Editing Note: At around the 8:10 mark of the episode, I said that "Gaza takes over..." What I meant to say is that "Hamas takes over."
There are regions of the world that have been hotbeds for war and strife for generations. The Middle East is no exception to this unfortunate rule. And if there is to be lasting peace there, mighty changes must take place.
Doing the right thing, that which is kind and nice, doesn't get the attention it deserves in society today; however, just because niceness doesn't sell in the corporate media cesspool, doesn't mean we shouldn't embrace it. It only takes a small effort on our part to change the narrative for the better.
We must never forget what happened on September 11, 2001. We owe it to those who perished, as well as to their families, to remember their sacrifices.
Granted, human beings often show a tendency to misuse the ability to think, reason, be rational, or treat other humans kindly. But imagine if we were to throw animals into the mix. Yikes!
There is plenty that we can all observe in our society, that needs improving. But what about the good that people do on a daily basis? We need to take back the narrative! Let's not allow ourselves to be dictated to, by those who seem to be succeeding in their quest to divide us, and pit us against each other. We need to choose to do the right thing, simply because it is the right thing.
Contrary to "popular opinion" it's not cool to ridicule men for being masculine. I make a legitimate attempt to justify masculine behavior in men - and for that matter, the fact that there is both feminine and masculine characteristics in both women and men - and that's okay!
Whatever you're doing this Memorial Day weekend, take a few moments to reflect on the lives that have been lost, to preserve your right to enjoy a holiday. Remember the fallen.
The right of the presumption of innocence, as enumerated in the Bill of Rights, is likely one of the most important and basic rights that exists for all Americans. We must do all within our power to ensure that that right, as well as all the other rights afforded to us, whether enumerated or otherwise, are preserved for everyone.
We all get the opportunity to make better choices today than we did yesterday. This life is both challenging and exhilarating. The goal is to make the most of it day after day.
The Constitution is limited, some may even say that it's vague, with respect to the duties of the President. And to be fair, it is vague regarding many aspects of the three coequal branches of government. But as to whether the Constitution allows for the Executive to issue Orders, well, that is certainly up for debate. As far as I'm concerned, the Constitution does not allow for the issuance of Executive Orders!
There seems to be an epidemic of consequential significance in America today, it's called mental illness. If our nations leaders, media, clinicians, and others, do not start addressing this epidemic seriously, it will not end well for any of us.
The arguments about equal and equality have been debated a lot in recent years. My take on the matter is what I believe to be, straightforward. I'm no biologist, but I understand basic science.
The oath entered into by those who work in government must actually mean something. We must hold them to account for that oath!
Will we ever know the truth regarding issues that the press has the responsibility to share with the people? We may never know. But what we need to know is that we have a responsibility as citizens to find out the truth...no matter where it leads.
Wouldn't it be nice if our elected leaders held themselves to the same high standards that they like to hold corporations and other organizations accountable to?
Life is short. I believe that we should strive to be a friend to all, even if we don't agree with them all of the time. Of course, we're going to have friends that we will always keep close. May each of us be the kind of friend that others would want to keep close.
We have heard it often of late from politicians...that they need to save our way of government. Well, making a speech about it won't help. It requires action. It requires fidelity to the Constitution. Nothing less.
It's a new year! What better time than now to evaluate that which is most important in life, whatever that might be for you? Thanks for listening.
To me, Christmas is a wonderful time of year. For those of you who celebrate Christmas, I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
