A few days ago while getting ready for the show about Sara Sanders, I ran a test Press Conference on my Facebook page. There I was asked two questions that I really want to answer, the first of which was: Did the years you spent assisting the homeless make you more compassionate or less?
Although many people who listen to me talk about the homeless would assume that I have become less compassionate towards them, the actual answer is neither more nor less. Why? Because for all those years the one thing I have realized is that nobody is really interested in addressing the real problem. All that is done is spending money on pretending to care solutions that make governments bigger and more expensive while doing nothing whatsoever for the actual homeless…
In case you missed the news, and you probably did, Rachel Dolezal thinks that is is important that you know that she is bi-sexual. Seriously… this is “important.”
Meanwhile, in Chicago, the Lake County Forest Preserve has decided – or maybe they haven’t – to end the “Civil War Days” program which included a re-enactment of the war and an encampment with a living history display. Why?
Well… it’s the second decade of the 21st Century. So the answer is that is causes “offense,” including Confederate Battle Flags and history with which one Angelo Kyle disagrees. Plus it doesn’t promote Global Warming Awareness.
Now, at the end of the day, which is more important? That we “be aware” that an opprobrious liar is “bi-sexual” or that the citizens of Illinois, who once upon a time provided thousands of troops to the Union, will be denied a chance to learn about that history because “history is written by the victors?” You might think that one is more important than the other. But we are being told, over and again by those who want to run society that it’s the other.
There’s a bigger problem with these Civil War controversies. Statues and flags are not it. We have forgotten one very important thing…
Recently it was announced that the Presidential Press Secretary, Sara Sanders, would be resigning from her position. On one political side, there is rejoicing tempered by the realization that they will automatically hate anybody who dares to stand in front of the White House Press Room without regard to any actual skills or personality. On the other side, there is also excitement as potential replacements are flung about on Social Media as a replacement that would please them.
The reality is that the Press Secretary, once a needed buffer between the President and the press, is no longer needed let alone meaningful. Press statements are not delivered under oath, so really, why bother at all?
