On this blog, you will find humor, news and opinion on a variety of topics as well as links to things on the web that I find humorous, interesting and knowledgeable. Simply, my goal is to make you more aware. I research information before coming to a conclusion because I am a critical thinker, I blog out of concern. I invite you to explore every link, explore every story or mindset and then, come to your own conclusions. I only ask you explore beyond the talking points.
By now it should go without saying; your comments are welcome and an important part of any debate. The opinion expressed here are my own, except where material is written by other Contributors. I am not a professional writer or a journalist but I will no longer sit on my bum and say nothing about the events in my world.
Consider for a moment these words from our past. Should they not serve as warning to our errs in our future?
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”. Albert Einstein
This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference.
–Edward R. Murrow, speech to the Radio and Television News
Directors Association, 1958.
My hope is to encourage you to research, ask questions and demand answers one post at a time, because truth is not told it is realized.
