Charging On……In 2017….

img_0406The resilience of America is on display.  Never mind the mind control games that have been perpetuated by the media who would have us believe there is a crises at every turn.  Please don’t be misled into thinking we have become the laughing stock of the rest of the world when, in fact, the rest of the world recognizes the unbelievable success and fortune of our country.

We are entering the New Year having identified a number of “things” and people that have captured our attention and provided the fertilizer necessary to fostering a feeling of doom and helplessness.  Let’s charge on with a new mindset and burn energy changing the things we can…..and ignoring those we cannot.  For instance, lets……

…embrace our new political landscape.  Conservatives have lived through 8 years of  liberal control…..a blue print for the liberal faction today, who are now beginning a similar experience…we all approach the same life in different ways…

…..ignore the folks who kneel during the National Anthem and otherwise disrespect the symbols of our democracy….they are not worth our time……

…..expend energy evaluating the message…not killing the messenger.  Snitches are not the problem……never have been.  Nobody likes them, and that is a heavy cross to carry….think message, message, message…..not messenger, messenger, messenger…

……encourage our children and grandchildren to understand and manage adversity, not shrink from it.  It is never going away……weeping and avoiding the unpleasant is not in the recipie for leadership and success…..life is not a rose garden….

…..galvanize our contempt for those who harm our police officers….when an officer is killed, the butterfly effect guarantees that untold numbers of our citizenry will suffer accordingly…..it is never okay to harm an officer….never

……be passionate, not stupid….there is room for differing, intelligent argument on everything under the sun…..it takes energy to be passionate….it takes very little to be stupid….

…..recognize that freedom has a very sharp edge…..those that would destroy us from within exist and there exists no magic lens to identify them before they strike….so…..be careful…..when driving…eating…….playing….always

Finally…be a part of the solution…..if you are not…..you are a part of the problem…..

Happy New Year
