Learn the Address


We learned this in 4th grade. Did you learn this in school? This speech still resonates.

How would you like to live in a world with no rules?

This morning I was watching the Today Show. They featured a story about a great little girl basketball player. She was great and she played on an all boys team but the state rules committee would not let her team participate in the tournament because the rules stated that a girl could not play on the boys team. The team decided not to participate if ahe was not allowed to play. The anchors of the Today Show said they hope that the team would challenge the rule and the ultimate goal was to overturn the rule. So why do we have rules? Do we only want to obey rules we agree with? On the evening news I saw a rancher who refuses to pay the tax the IRS has determined he owes on the land that he lets his cows graze on. he has not paid taxes in 20 years and has a tax bill of 1 million dollars. he refuses to pay and people from throughout the country have come out to support him. So he refuses to pay his taxes but we have to pay our taxes. Is he right? What rules do we wish to obey? So what do we do? Eliminate some rules, all rules? 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.

The kind of women that don’t mind brawling and that is sad. Read the linked story for the details.
