EP 12 – FREEDOM MATTERS – For Everyone
Tonight is the First WEEKNIGHT of FREEDOM WEEK!!! Why is it FREEDOM WEEK! Because this Saturday is the 4th of July 2020 and we need to celebrate a little something to get our heads around all the FUSTERCLUCK this year has been so far!!!
I plan to Freedom so hard this week. So I thought I’d start with talking about this ideal of FREEDOM which actually brings us TOGETHER!! And why it MATTERS FOR EVERYONE and why when Freedoms start to be infringed upon because of the opinions, offended-ness, or subjectivity of others, it is a downward spiral that we will be hard pressed to recover from.
FREEDOMS = Life Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness This IDEAL is something to strive for for everyone, this is why we had the Gettysburg Address in November 1863: https://rmc.library.cornell.edu/gettysburg/good_cause/transcript.htm#:~:text=President%20Lincoln%20delivered%20the%20272,all%20men%20are%20created%20equal
FREEDOM: It Costs, but it’s worth it, it gives more back, and it unites!
WE owe it to one another as United States citizens to contend side by side for one another’s freedoms, So this week, lets focus not on the scars of the past but what they have taught all of us and the road they have paved forward!!
As always, I’d love any feedback.
And Now You’ve been Grayed Out….

I’ve been on a bit of a mini tear on social media about the bills, and tonight I’ll be putting together a new podcast episode on this particular subject matter as well as just reading the bills in general.
We have an obligation to at least dig a little deeper on some of these things; because we are largely being kept in the dark when it comes to the content of a lot of bills, laws, propositions (state level) and we tend to lean on whatever idealogical bent we identify with in the author/sponsor. This is not enough, because I believe most people don’t want the pork, sneaky addendum attempts, the amendments added in the last moments, or any of that garbage. Should we have a bill (take the Covid financial packages from April as an example) laced with non related crap that tries to push an agenda, or sneak stuff in for whatever purpose the few deem necessary?
In this case, the bills being presented from both the Senate (Republican written) and House (Democrat written) are largely the same bill, but the media is saying the senate bill is weak, and the Democrats are going to stop the weak bill and write a strong bill, or wait for the house bill. Why? What purpose does that serve when reform is needed and we are all on board waiting for the changes? It’s political partisan gamesmanship, and its a tired game played by both sides, who will then try to tell you it’s only played by the other side. It’s a garbage tactic that proves that most politicians are only in it for their careers and to win, not for the people they are elected to represent. We need to demand better from them, we need to be honest about it as well, demanding it from the people we identify as “our side” as much, if not more than, we demand it from the “other side”.
We must BE BETTER!!!!!
