To start this blog, let me first tell you that what you think is the truth is probably anything but.
As an author, I do my best not to be distracted by the news. Why?
First, the news is either broadcast through a lens of bias or is straight-out propaganda.
I like Bill Mahar, and I also like Ben Shapiro. Where have you been if you don’t know those names?
Bill is a classic liberal, and Ben is a traditional conservative. Both are intelligent people and worthy of your time.
Republicans and Democrats are dehumanized and marginalized by the media. If you have been brainwashed by the left, you won’t consider listening to a conservative. If, on the other hand, the right has bent your ear, you will dismiss anything you hear from the democrats.
It’s not enough to divide us along political ideologies. They need us divided along racial lines too.
Our current administration is going out of its way to curry favor with people who typically lean left by demonizing white males. I find what our leaders say offensive and, in the words of this generation, cray cray.
Bill went on Ben’s show. He clearly had based much of his ideology on talking points by the left.
I don’t think Ben shifted his opinions by anything Bill had to say. On the other hand, I moved some of my thoughts by what I heard. While both men are articulate and funny, I think Ben’s opinions are based on history and reality vs. what Bill heard on CNN.
The first lesson in life is,
- Don’t believe everything that you hear.
- Follow the money.
- Just maybe you can judge a book by its cover.
- Watch what someone does, and discount what they say until their actions match their values.
The world is a crazy place. Megalomaniacs with Nukes hold the entire world hostage. Weapons of mass destruction should be outlawed worldwide…period. I touch on this in my latest novel, Earth’s Last Hope.
If you wonder why there are so many shootings, you must follow where people get their input.
- The Media
- The gaming industry
Garbage in equals garbage out.
When we think of a time when the world, or at least this country (USA), was at its peak, Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver were what we watched. Shows with moral construct.
Acting up in school would get your butt warmed up rather nicely. It was both painful and humiliating. It should be.
Gun Reform is not the answer. Mental illness is.
We will never fix the problem. Both the entertainment industry and the gaming industry own too many lawmakers.
Until we clean up DC, the world is in peril. Money is the root of all evil. Money turns into power, and power is addictive as any drug that was ever conceived.
While Elon thinks occupying Mars is the answer, we must look past Mars. Read my novel for my thoughts on the subject.
My thoughts are my own; I am not for sale. My book is.
