Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree with the author).
“We have a national crisis,” said Eugene O’Donnell, a former New York City police officer and now a lecturer at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. “For the first time in my life, I would say I could never recommend the job. Who’s going to put on a camera, go into urban America where people are going to critique every move you make? You’re going to be demonized.”
The Museum of the Bible will lay out the impact of the Bible from ancient times to the present, for it is impossible to have a conversation about world history, literature, and even food without mentioning the impact of the Bible.
Since the early hours of Nov. 9, when it was clear Trump won, liberals have hit the streets from D.C. to New York protesting.
And the liberal media has turned them into martyrs of a noble cause, giving them the press and the airtime that they should be devoting to our new president. The Washington Post, CNN and others are cheering on these protesters with wall-to-wall coverage.
A big part of Barack Obama’s initial appeal to many of the Americans who voted for him in 2008 was the unspoken promise that he’d lead us into a post-racial era. How racist could America be if we had a black President, right? Unfortunately, Obama and his allies on the Left took us in exactly the opposite direction. Day in and day out, any white person who didn’t toe the liberal line was called a racist and falsely accused of having white privilege.
There are millions of fine young people across America today, people of character, people of principle, people of discipline, people of maturity. But there are millions of others who have been coddled all their lives, almost never taught to lose or be put in their place or take full responsibility for their actions. It is some of those young people who are protesting on the streets and being comforted by their professors as they cry on college campuses in the aftermath of the elections.
I believe Donald Trump deserves a chance, as any other president would have. The American people spoke and elected him for a reason. Even if you don’t agree with the reasoning, he is still our next president. The gridlock and divide that has swept our nation will only be perpetuated if Donald Trump isn’t given a chance from the get-go.
“They still don’t get what the Trump win was all about. All those people protesting and calling their fellow citizens racists, sexists and xenophobes don’t have a clue why Hillary really lost.”
It’s true and you know it. You’re afraid somebody will say something. And you’re afraid that you’ll respond, and you will.
That’s when the jellied cranberry hits the floor.
