$80 Million

$80 million was spent on the Tennessee Senate race. Just think about what better use of that money could have been. Like scholarships, homes for the homeless, repairing public schools, food for the poor…that sort of thing. Politics in America has gone amok on spending. Its the reason why campaigning needs overhaul.

Something About Free Speech

I believe in free speech but with freedom comes responsibility to say things that are factual and beneficial to humanity. Some who use their rights to smear and lie and create chaos need to be held accountable for their actions. Freedom comes with responsibility cannot be emphasized enough. The words of your heart can be the perfume of your soul and when you think about it that can be a dangerous thing.

Farewell Barbara Bush

The Bush family is the greatest political dynasty in American history. I didn’t agree with everything they did in politics but they are decent people who worked to make the world better in their own way.

Tonight this nation mourns Barbara Pierce Bush who devoted her life to service to the country as its First and Second Lady of The United States. Rest in power Mrs. Bush.

Keep Your Politics To Yourself

I have found that people who say keep your politics to yourself are the ones who hate being challenged because of theirs. Perhaps its people who have enjoyed the status quo for decades and when they have to be uncomfortable because what they believe is a system built on selfishness, privilege and some level of discrimination. We are starting to see this more and more as people start to ratchet up the level of hate.
