Rev. Al was an FBI informant 30 years ago…why is this news today?

Yesterday old news surfaced regarding Al Sharpton. Sharpton was an FBI informant back in the eigthies. He actually wore a wire and taped his conversations with some mob heavyweights. He says that he was dealing with corruption in the music business. Since the eighties Sharpton has turned his life around and now he is a respected member of the media community. He is still reviled by some but is this type of journalism fair? If we are the land of second chances are we willing to accept the Sharpton of today or do we vilify him for his behavior over 30 years ago? Share your thoughts.


Restroom Controversy…is this a civil rights issue?

A friend of mine told me her granddaughter works at a major retailer. There is an employee who was hired as a male, but now he identifies as a female. He has started using the ladies room and when her granddaughter complained she was told by HR that she was discriminating against the employee. So now she no longer uses the ladies room at the store. Are her rights being ignored? Share your thoughts.

Sarah Palin says our President is known for “Mom Jeans” …is our president viewed as weak on the world’s stage?

It would be easy to dismiss the verbal drivel spouted by Sarah Palin, but a broken clock is right at least twice a day. She basically calls the president weak in this clip. She is no fan of the president but how do you think the president is perceived on the world’s stage?

Am I my Brother’s Keeper…Yes, I am

President Obama–”I didn’t have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,” the President said. He compared himself to young men now who are growing up like he did.”The only difference is that I grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. So when I made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe,” the President said. “I had people who encouraged me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. And they pushed me to work hard, and study hard, and make the most of myself. And if I didn’t listen, they said it again. And if I didn’t listen, they said it a third time – and they would give me second chances and third chances. “They never gave up on me, and so I didn’t give up on myself.”
Yesterday President Obama was amazingly candid as he discussed his childhood. He shared this as he introduced the President’s Initiative, My Brother’s Keeper. Yesterday was inspiring, but what will actually change the dynamic? It was interesting that the president took the opportunity to also scold the young men as he said they now have “no more excuses”. To some degree he is correct, but he needs to also take that same critical mirror and look at himself. He has also had a pocketful of excuses to explain his own lack of progress on his own agenda. The president has rewarded his LGBT community for their support and it has never came wrapped up with a lecture. It would have been refreshing to have seen this Initiative released with no chaser. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/27/obama-announces-my-brothers-keeper/

SMILE…you are posing in front of a flag draped coffin. SMILE…you are showing such disrespect. SMILE…you post it on Instagram. SMILE…you are suspended from the honor guard. There is really nothing to smile about this is clueless, cruel and unbecoming of any soldier.
