Debate Central / Supreme Court Favors Baker In Refusal To Same Sex
« on: June 04, 2018, 07:06:54 PM »
How do someone decide religious freedom (freedom of speech) vs. discrimination?  Freedom of speech or is this a case of discrimination?  Where do freedom of speech ends and discrimination start?  The supreme court ruled 7-2 in favor of freedom of speech over discrimination .

« on: February 28, 2018, 08:08:40 PM »
I'm concern about such chants...  Should America have borders?  Should America be a sovereign nation?

Any country without border is not a country.

Debate Central / Liberals Are Not Liberal
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:24:58 PM »
We often think the left are liberals but they have changed.  The new left is really social liberal and that's word ninja for socialism.  What people on the left don't understand about liberalism is liberalism is founded by the work of John Locke, Emmanuel Kant, and John Stuart Mills.  Liberals is a concept where a man can own his work, own his thoughts, and own his properties, and the government cannot infringe on this.  Social Liberals do not believe this because they think bigger government is better, government knows better, and etc...  Are you a social liberal or a classical liberal?

Debate Central / What Is Fair Wage?
« on: January 14, 2018, 07:28:27 PM »
What do you all think is a fair wage?  Let's say you operate a company.  How much do you want to pay your worker?  What does fair mean?  Who should set fair?  Should it be you, government, or market?

Work Avenue / Sabbatical Leave
« on: July 19, 2017, 12:00:40 AM »
Have anyone ever taken a personal "sabbatical leave?"  How was it readjusting to corporate life?  The pressure, and the stress?  My daughter is two and I haven't worked a real day since she was born.  I intended 1 year sabbatical to rest and travel but instead I took two years instead to travel with my family across the country.  It seems after the first year I couldn't muster the discipline to work on my project even though I had a schema, half a business plan written, and knew I could build a prototype solution out in 6 months.  Perhaps things didn't work out exactly I had imagined so I avoided the project and let wanderlust bite me.  I'm a bit worry I've become dulled, lazy, and out of practice.  More importantly, I'm worried people are trusting me with a great deal of responsibility .  Usually I'm not negative, and perhaps this is signs of anxiety I need to reflect and mediate on to understand why. 

If you have done a sabbatical and have gone back to work give me some insights on your prep work to hit the ground running...

Online Journal / Thoughts and Feelings
« on: July 18, 2017, 03:35:33 PM »
Too often we pick a group (or man of a group) and feel safe about this group.  Then we become brainwashed and become a foot soldier of that group led by a wo/man.  Rarely do we ever question the group and the underlying thoughts and assumptions of the group.  We march like an obedient soldier.  We sing the tune like a good choir girl/boy.  All in all, we are social engineered by the masters of the group.  All in all, we accept because thinking about the thoughts of the group is very difficult proposition to sort all the knots and entanglement of thoughts.  Yet, it is in this very sorting out part, the tension, the conflict, the feeling of lost, and ultimately the resolution which nurtures us into a new level consciousness and understanding.  Many times we don't want to do these things because change is scary and we are afraid of who or what we might become if we try.  Sometimes our action based upon the group think feels wrong but we put these voices in a box and say to oneself, be obedient, don't deviate.  Why?  If we do, we might lose our belonging and togetherness with the group.  So instead of being a free thinker, a truth seeker, we actually become a group thinker, and group preacher because it's easier and less risky.  Who cares about being free or morally right.  We just need to be on the right side of the war.  Pick your horse and place your bet because your future depends on it.  How about your children's future?  The bets you place, and the horses you pick have huge ramification on your children's future outcome.  Pick a winner who screws them over, and all may have been for naught.  History is littered with those who place their whole future on the horse.  For a very long time the horse wins many races and all seems jolly and happy.  Then suddenly the horse becomes lame and your fortune crashes with this lame horse.  Horses are non-durable concept.  They may run many great races but eventually the horse becomes lame.  We must place our hopes and future on a much more durable concept.  We must root our future and children on thoughts and feelings.  Although they are fleeting at times, when rooted in sound reasoning, they are the most durable concept we have in society.  Keep your mind open and your heart open.
