Social Regulation, Political Correctness, Merry Christmas, and the Media

Sometimes we hear someone huffing with anger, “I can say Merry Christmas if I want to!!!”  And they are correct in their assertion – while being incorrect in their anger.  Some act as if Congress passed a law against saying Merry Christmas – no such thing has happened, and it will never happen in the […]

“…a false sense of urgency.”

We are worn out from GOP primary fatigue.  Is that redundant?  Doctor John Sharp, Harvard Medical School psychiatrist and  author of The Emotional Challenge, recently said, “…fatigue dis-emboldens us.”  The 21st Century has proven to be fast and furious.  War is present.  Facebook dominates.  Ipad, ipod, smart phones, wi if, financial upheaval – economic uncertainty, […]
