Focus on getting it right, not being right.

The Slogan

Trying to carry on meaningful discussion with the politically apathetic, or with the star struck ignorant Obama fan boys and girls out there can be maddening. But I fight on because I know that someone somewhere is going to learn something new just by being within earshot of my online rants and Facebook threads.

My favorite phrase is “emotion is the enemy of critical thought.” We see examples of this every single day in the news and among our friends, family and coworkers. When emotions get high, logic disappears. The massive efforts around gun control and gay marriage are the latest example… why on Earth is Congress not focusing on the economy, or jobs, or tax reform? Because those are hard things, attacking bigots and crazy gun owners is much easier for many Americans to understand.
