Protect And Serve



United Airlines lost something north of $200 Million in stock value yesterday. That is somewhat misleading because it’s stock value, not actual operating money. Still, it gives them an excuse to reduce dividends which will make retirees invested in the airlines less happy.

“Protect-Serve in place… enhance your calm…”

There’s plenty of finger pointing to go around, and plenty of people who will take the blame and lose their jobs so that the Managers don’t have to. But what does the whole thing say about our culture?

A man arrested in Sacramento is later released for a “lack of evidence” that he actually did anything wrong. The problem is that his arrest was caught on video and once again, raises serious questions about law enforcement behavior. Much like the United Flight, the same overarching question remains – what happened to “protect and serve?”

Meanwhile Presidential spokesman Sean Spicer, who obviously had no clue that yesterday was Passover, announced that Assad is worse than Hitler. The nation, led by the Offense Police, screeched and yelled until he clarified what he meant, which apparently was that Assad is worse than Hitler. Then he apologized for saying that Assad is worse than Hitler.

Whether it’s a Baseball Team owner or a French Politician or a Presidential Spokesman, it seems like Hitler comments are basically a career death trap to be avoided. So, why not give my system a try?

We Are Losing Our Mind

We – corporately, as a nation – are losing our minds.

Turns out that somebody spent a lot of money on a study that “proves” that IF an airplane has a 1st class cabin, incidents of “air rage” increase four fold. Because people in Coach are upset that the 1st Class passengers get better service, drinks and bathrooms, which have a sign on them indicating whether or not it is occupied, but not whether that person occupying it is male, female or transgender.

It ought to be pretty obvious to us, but like World War I was obvious to anybody who was actually thinking in July of 1914, there doesn’t seem to be any real clue as to how to stop it or even what to do about it. From the “micro-aggression” safe spaces to the bathrooms at Target (which are not bathrooms, they are restrooms), we’re losing the bubble and control of our society far too quickly.

That means that we are so busy either being offended or apologizing for causing some perceived offense that we have no time to pay attention to the things that actually matter or figure out who is actually the real threat to us.
