The day certainly had a lot of twists of turns. Some good news came for states in the form of aid from the federal government, saving jobs and terrible pay cuts. Prop 8 was also overturned by a federal court for what will probably be a very contentious issue for the next year and a half.
Today’s theme was divisiveness. It is obvious that the nation is divided on a variety or issues. Liberals and conservatives are in an election year going after the soul of the voter. No matter the issue partisan bickering will always stand in the way of real progress, unless the people refuse to have it. It also means understanding the arguments that are being tossed at the audience, seeping through the bullshit in other words. It also means reading the original sources to draw conclusions on your own. Do not let the pundits control your political beliefs, but decide for yourself.
I have decided to take on a mission and that is to analyze arguments that are being used on a variety of issues. I did it today with the gay marriage and Middle East conflict. Everyday people are inundated with constant bias rhetoric, myself included. I hope to help you sort through the noise to make our understanding of the world a little easier.
To sum up my posts today:
1. My theme was was divisiveness
2. I states receiving aid from congress
3. A very insincere happy birthday to President Obama from the GOP, illustrating partisan bickering
4. The Brook’s piece on life is very important for all to read
5. Kenya’s new constitution is very controversial here and abroad
6. I deconstructed the arguments for gay marriage and Middle East conflicts
As the day ends remember to show a little kindness to someone. There will not be any posts tomorrow, but never fear I will be back on Friday. I leave you now with Sharron Angle, a Tea Party candidate, saying she wants the media to be her friend.
