Base Names, Statues, Cartoons & The Losing Side of Symbolic Victory – Grayed Out Podcast EP 9

 

Ep 9: Base Names, Statues, Cartoons & The Losing Side of Symbolic Victory…

THIS TIME AROUND… I’M KIND OF TAKING A SIDE… but not the way one would expect and hopefully in a way that makes, as Arsenio used to say, go hmm….

SYMBOLIC VICTORY – There are symbolic victories throughout history that have turned out to be just that, and came before the overall demise of the winner. WW2 gave us some prime examples just to point in a general direction.

Here is why I bring this up.

Changing names of Military Installations, Tearing down statues, and banning cartoons or tv shows… are not REAL HELP, they are merely symbolic.

You might be wondering why that is an issue and how am I being politically homeless on this? Let me explain… well let me sum up.
HARD TRUTHS

CHANGES COST BIG MONEY – bigger than you’d expect. (grave 3K)
Legal battles to those changes = BIGGER MONEY

Who bears that cost and what does it actually buy us???

Defending Trump & Other Troubling Matters – Grayed Out Podcast EP 8

Ep 8: Defending Trump & Other Troubling Matters

Do you know what it’s like to have to defend something or someone that you’re not exactly a big fan of? I mean just try and get a non-Patriots fan to admit that Tom Brady may be the GOAT and you’ll see. It’s painful if not near impossible… but remember the analogy… our elected leaders are not a football team or player.

With the political divide being as prevalent as it is, large as it has ever been, and seemingly only getting worse. It’s maddening to see when people cannot be honest even when they dislike a politician or platform.

Because of this I have had to come out in defense of President Trump over the idiocy of the “Orange Man Bad” mindset that limits peoples reasonable response to anything good that may come from the current administration…

NOW I understand that the list of issues that our POTUS has, is long and distinguished. He’s a bloviator, ego driven, narcissistic, but really what can you expect from someone who was raised to think he was the most important person in any room. So there is enough there, but people want to drive the point home so badly they begin exaggerating the small things and then it just gets weird.

Beyond that support or rejection of Trump now leads people to be fired from jobs, lose friends, treat family poorly, and turns civil discourse into frothing at the mouth diatribes over all the bad the orange man has done… But there is good and bad, and when we can be adult enough to recognize, then we are ready for the kind of discussion that can bring about change.

The good and the bad…
