Read the linked story and you decide is Al Roker justified or is he overreacting?

The Scandal Abortion Was a Surprise but why?

Thursday night Scandal’s main character Olivia Pope had an abortion. Silent Night was the song that played during the procedure. It was sad but not surprising. Pope is the most loved side chick in the galaxy. We have watched her antics and often celebrated them so why are we surprised when the storyline went left? I have posted a blog post from author Sophia A. Nelson. Read it and share your thoughts.


Marketing Fear: Isis and the Media

Isis has the whole world on alert. They are killers that show no mercy. What they do is news and worthy of reporting, but has the media gone too far? Over the past few days have they moved from reporting the events to marketing fear? The networks show the huge graphics Terror in Paris. They play videos showing the violence and the carnage over and over again. What is the point and what is this doing to the public? Share your thoughts.

You can feel for the people of Paris and the people of Chicago too

You have the ability to have sympathy and empathy for more than one group of people at the same time. Over the last couple of days we have seen an outpouring of grief for the people of Paris. What happened Friday night is heartbreaking. The loss of life is devastating but today on Twitter a person drawing a distinction. The writer said 129 people die in Paris and the world cries, but there have bee 400 people who have died in Chicago this year. Who is crying? We have within us the ability to cry for both but we also have to look at them as two different situations. At this point we do not know the individuals who committed the Paris massacre. We know the group but not the particulars. The Chicago situation is different. We know who is doing the killing. In Chicago it is neighbor killing neighbor. People aren’t coming from another country killing the Chicagoans. This is home grown terror, and the people at home are the ones who have to address the situation.

We knew Greg Hardy beat up his girlfriend, but why are we appalled when we see the photos?

Dallas Cowboy Greg Hardy beat up his girlfriend, but he is still in the NFL. He has been playing and the team stood by him, but Friday photos were released showing his brutality. Sports pundits are feigning indignation in light of the pictures. So his actions only became real when we could see them? Ray Rice knocked his fiancee out and got a 3 day suspension, but when the tape was released so was he. Chris Brown brutalized Rihanna, and when those photos were released he became the poster child for domestic violence. So its like when a tree falls in the forest an no one hears it did it really happen or matter? If we don’t see it even though the details are all there on the police report we are not convinced until we see the bruises. What does that say about us?

Is CNN on a Dr. Carson witch hunt?

CNN seems to be on a mission, and that is to destroy Dr. Ben Carson, They are going full throttle in pursuit of dirt on the doctor. Prior to this I really did not have Carson on my radar, but their relentless pursuit of dirt is making me take a second look at the good doctor. Politico is also doing their due diligence to take potshots at the good doctor. The doctor is the front runner and with that brings more scrutiny but where is this zeal when it comes to Donald Trump? They are afraid of Trump and not Carson, but let’s us not forget Carson said he has his anger issues under control, but I don’t think it is wise to push it.

Do they really think this will get black votes?

The View mocks Carly Fiorina’s looks…fair game or just mean?

The women at The View were indignant when Donald Trump took a swipe at Carly Fiorina’s looks, but why do they reserve the right to mock her? Look at the clip and share your thoughts.

Do we even need debates?

The GOP contenders are meeting today to discuss last week’s debates. They want more Republicans at the moderator table. They believe that the liberals control the microphones and they in fact control the agenda. Funny thing is the candidates both Democrats and Republicans don’t answer the questions anyway. They simply use the questions as an intro into their talking points. What do we actually learn from these televised events? Is it simply entertainment? Share your thoughts.
