By now you have probably heard about the 14 year old Muslim boy Ahmed who built a clock and took it to school. He was arrested for his efforts. When I first heard about the situation I was appalled, but that was prior to seeing the clock. The clock looked like a bomb and it should have been investigated. We live in a dangerous society and we have to be cautious and sometimes innocent people will be caught up. Could it have been handle better? probably, but Ahmed is a hero now and that is also a little disturbing. Is he a victim or a victor? Judging from the offer of a Twitter internship, a shout out from the creator of Facebook and an invite to the White House I would say he is the victor.
Last night Donald Trump held a townhall meeting. Someone in the crowd said President Obama was a Muslim. Trump did not correct the potential voter, but why would he? Trump is a birther and apparently some of his followers are too. Trump will get a little heat from the media but that’s it. He won’t correct or apologize because that is not his brand. On to the next faux outrage.
By now you have seen the two high school students brutal hit on a referee. There is no excuse for this kind of barbaric behavior, but that does not mean on has not been given. The boys are claiming the referee used racial slurs in the course of the game. So is this a justifiable response? No it isn’t. If the referee did use racial slurs he should have been reported not knocked out. Share your thoughts.

Democrats are angry, Republicans are angry and Black Lives Matter activists are angry…how can anything get done?
When was the last time you accomplished anything when you were angry? Rarely are you at your best when you are angry. When was the last fruitful discussion you had when you were angry? Anger is not a catalyst to growth it is an impediment to growth. Until the anger is replaced by rational behavior nothing good will happen. What will happen is simply more anger and that will sadly produce nothing.

Last night I watched the GOP forum. A number of the candidates spoke about what they would do if they were president but Donald Trump was not on the stage, but his presence was still in the room. he has the ability to suck the air out of the room even when he is not in the room. I have been watching Morning Joe today and they literally discussed Trump for the first 20 minutes of their broadcast. Sick of the Trump effect I turned to CNN and they are singing the same tune. Can’t escape Trump. Will he actually be the nominee? A month ago it seemed far fetched. Now who knows?
