Lost in the Forest, or Found on the Path?

We grow and change every day. Isn't that the goal? Saul/Paul started out murdering Christians, then went on to write most of the New Testament. Can you imagine if everyone had treated Paul like he were still Saul? His ministry would be shot. He'd be done. But, they...

Walk On By

Walk On By

I'm back on social media because of my business. And, because it's my business, I'm careful with my posts and comments. I keep it neutral, or, if I have an opinion, it's one that I would say out loud to anyone, anywhere. Like I prefer red wine over white and I like...

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Aretha said it best. And, it's what we need. A friend lamented on a social media post how a white guy didn't die during an intense police altercation, but a black man was killed for expired tags. She said she got pulled over for expired tags, but as a white woman she...

Burying More Than Nursing Home Residents

Another way the media slant the news is to spend more time on a less important story that supports the narrative, and bury a hot-button story that goes against it. I was speaking with a Democrat-voting Independent who assured me that Texas Governor Greg Abbott told...

NOT Just the Facts

NOT Just the Facts

The problem with the news today is the lack of facts. Take the following two paragraphs. Both of these are from general news articles, and not from opinion pieces. #1: We can verify that the claim of thousands of jobs lost is true, however, it can be misleading. A...

Herd Mentality

Last time I left you with a teaser where I would delve into how the Main Stream Media (MSM) uses tone and vocabulary to steer agendas. So, let me start with one example. This will be the first in an ongoing series, dissecting the manner in which our news is crafted to...
