Trump Misses The Good Old Days…Let’s Revisit Those Days

I love the old days, you know? You know what I hate? There’s a guy totally disruptive, throwing punches. We’re not allowed to punch back anymore … I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks…

Yeah Donald let’s take a look at those “good old days”…

Prioritizing Marriage, Family, and Career


Three years ago I ran across this Facebook post, “3 Things I Wish I Knew Before We Got Married” written by Admin khuy, and I read it, before I got married.

What is interesting is reading it three years later and my mouth kept dropping, because it felt like I was reading it for the very first time. It’s been 6 years into a relationship, three of those years have been as a married couple—and I think this is a great article for those individuals who are career driven and/or mission driven, and think they “got it handled” when it comes to marriage and family.

Today I share this post with those of you contemplating marriage, engaged to be married, newlyweds, and even those of you married 8-40 years. I share this with the married ones who place their careers before their marriage (knowingly or unknowingly), and ignorantly think there will be harmony in that arrangement.

I share this with those of you planning to start a family, currently pregnant, have a newborn, and of course to those of you with multiple children of various ages. I share this with those of you who put your children first and your marriage second, or even last. Before your first child is born, it’s just you and your spouse. When your last child leaves the nest, guess what? It will just be you and your spouse. Your partnership deserves more than being placed second or worse, last to anything and anyone.

These three things that Admin khuy writes about sound simple, but oddly enough, many couples aren’t doing these things and that’s why current statistics are showing high divorce rates by or before year 8 in the marriage. It’s not money causing divorce, it’s disconnection, and as khuy wrote, “unawareness” that is the root cause. The byproduct ends up being money, adultery, abuse, neglect, etc. But before these things took place the roots were formed by one or both people being unaware of what marriage requires, and then the two who were once connected became disconnected—and as they grew farther apart the “issues” took center stage.

Please read this husband’s post (below) and try these three things for at least one month, and see how it can positively change your life, your marriage, your family, and even your community. If you can then see the possibility, maybe then you will embrace it as your way of life.

Marriage isn’t about living happily ever after with that one person who “completes” you, it’s about the journey of transitioning into a better, more selfless you.

Amazing Analysis by Fareed Zakaria on the New Age Radical Who Hijacks Islam For Terroristic Thrills Without a True Belief System

I recorded the introduction of Fareed Zakaria on Fareed Zakaria GPS (on CNN). You have to watch this video and then ask yourself if Western politicians and law enforcement truly get what we’re up against with ISIL or is it just easier for them to target and criminalize all Muslims. 

Fareed Zakaria speaks about the findings of most recent terrorist attacks in Belgium and San Bernardino:They ARE NOT practicing, devout Muslims who became radicalized. They were radicalized and THEN turned to Islam. They have NO political viewpoints before joining ISIL and other gangs. They take on these views upon joining. 

They were and are oftentimes second generation Europeans who had little to no strong religious beliefs, face discrimination and feel lost because they have no connection to the old world (where their parents are from) and no connection to the new world (where they were born but aren’t accepted). 

They then became criminals and outcasts and were radicalized, and THEN used Islam to revolt against traditional Islam, and the world. 

They are using what they have learned about Islam and twisting it to reach their ultimate goal of terror. They don’t have another platform to use so they use religion. 

One ring leader of the Paris attacks was a known drug and alcohol user and partied in night clubs (definitely not the behavior of devout follower of Islam). Two terrorists bought the books “Islam For Dummies” and “The Koran For Dummies”. If they were devout Muslims they wouldn’t need either book. 

Fareed Zakaria says that Western law enforcement shouldn’t just focus on wire taps of mosques and homes, but zooming in on prison inmates, junkies high in the alley, and the person hanging out getting drunk and high in bars and night clubs—“where they are getting radicalized before they become Islamized” 

Mr. Zakaria’s analysis is right on point, and explains why law enforcement and politicians are way off target, and why the Muslim community must pull together to root themselves of the terroristic cancer that is trying to destroy their people, their faith, and the world. Just as Christians have to zoom in on the radicals within our religion who pervert our beliefs for terroristic gains. 

Think about the countless terrorists around the world that used (and many still use) Christianity to commit heinous acts including bombings, massacres, torture, rape, kidnapping, and more:

  • Ku Klux Klan (KKK)
  • Christian militia groups in Central African Republic who targeted, massacred, and even cannibalized thousands of Muslims in 2014. 
  • National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) in India
  • Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, and Central African Republic
  • Army of God, attacked abortion clinics and doctors in the U.S.
  • Eric Robert Rudolph, the 1996 Centenniel Olympic Park bomber 
  • Christian Identity (global group) who were connected with the 2002 Soweto bombings. Their beliefs are spread mostly through white supremacist prison gangs. 
  • Hutaree Christian Militia Movement, was said in 2011 by US. Dept of Homeland Security, to have more weapons than all of the Islamic terror defendants charged in the US since the September 11, 2001 attacks. 
  • Robert Lewis Dear, terrorist in 2015 Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic attack 

In all of the above examples of Christian terrorists, the world didn’t and don’t blame all Christians, we point the finger directly at the terrorists, and we quickly state that these individuals and groups have hijacked a religion. But we don’t do that with Muslim terrorists. We blame the entire religion of Islam and all of its followers. What’s wrong with this picture?
