    Why do we let people who commit violence or lie to the public talk?

    in Self Help

    I don't care why someone commits murder, they should be made to pay the price.  The price should be commensurate with the crime.  Don't let them talk, don't let them try to explain their way out of doing murder or lying.


    The Oklahoma City Bomber should have been made to sit on a drum of explosives in an isolated area and made to sit and sit and just when he thinks he is safe, explode the bomb.  Let him feel the tragedy he visited on so many people, let him know the fear of the unknown.


    Being lenient with people, giving excuses to and for people who commit heinous acts is not my job.  I don't want to be distracted from the serious nature of what crime they committed.


    We have people sitting in prison with life sentences for selling or using marijuana.  Why?  Nowadays using marijuana as long as you are not trafficking in it or lacing it with LSD or some poison it is considered a misdemeanor.


    Things are not quite right with the legal system.  I like the judge who sentenced a young girl to walk 30 miles or spend 30 days in jail and pay a fine a more just punishment for using a taxi cab to get some place and then stiff the driver.


    Letting people lie about stealing money is dangerous.  If a corporation or people lie for whatever reason there should be a punishment, not an excuse, a slap on the hand and a promise not to do it again.  Lying becomes a habit and should be stopped at an early age.  If not stopped then the punishment should fit the crime.  Rachel Dolezal lied about being black;  I don't know what her punishment should be, but I wouldn't let her go on public tv and explain it.  There is no justification for what she has done and if she is mentally ill treat the illness don't parade her around.


    You can tell I am really upset by people who get away with doing wrong - don't make them public figures

    QUOTES -


    "What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good."
    Maya Angelou /

    Science for the sake of Science

    in Self Help

    There is a lot of research going on today.  Some of the research has a true purpose, some of it does not.  For example scientists are saying that within the next 5 to 10 years they will be able to produce a dinosaur.  Why do we need dinosaurs?  What can making a dinosaur do to advance civilization?  Where is the benefit in making dinosaurs?  Are we planning on making them the new weapon of mass destruction?  they would definitely be biological in nature.


    There is value in cancer research and learning how to improve our daily lives.  I believe in space exploration but the need is becoming more real on a daily basis as we continue to destroy this planet.  We need to enjoy the beauty of our world and find ways to make it better.


    People are a great natural resource but they have not learned to be good care givers of the planet.  You don't have to be rich to be a good caretaker all you have to do is take care of the planet on a daily basis.


    Science is a tool which can be used for good or evil.  Science for the sake of science is dangerous especially when we ignore the creator.


    We need to reign in science that seems to be running amok and not let them go unchecked.

    Complainers

    in Self Help

    I know that there are a lot of things that or wrong or need improvement.  However, just complaining about something is not the answer unless you just like to hear the sound of your own voice.  I once worked for an attorney and she said it's okay to complain but no one is really going to listen unless you come to the table with an offer of a solution.  I agree with her and have lived by that idea ever since.


    It has stopped me from complaining, not that there isn't a lot to complain about it's just that I don't always have an offer of what can be done to change the situation.  Also getting upset about something and then doing nothing is more aggravating and less useful.  Who needs high blood pressure or an ulcer?  


    Let's think about what is upsetting us and why and come up with some ideas for a solution to the problem.  If you can't think of anyting than let the issue go because frankly I don't need the headache, the ulcer or the high blood pressure.  It takes a lot of useless energy to complain. 


    I want a solution, I want results so the next time you get ready to complain about something try thinking about what is upsetting you and why and then address how you can change the circumstances.


    We can apply this attitude to everything from service, to health care to personal arguments and the government.  Get with it people and stop complaining there are a lot more things we can do with that energy.

    People need to think for themselves and learn discernment

    in Self Help

    I am not a fan of firing someone because they made a mistake.  A lot of time, energy and money went into training someone to do something and to fire that person over an embarassing mistake doesn't fix the problem and is not economically sound.


    I have worked for many companies over the years and made my fair share of mistakes, some I may share with you on the live broadcast; I'm not sure at this time.


    It is acceptable in my book to fire someone for being lazy, doing drugs or alcohol on the job or stealing.  However if the individual is good at their job some judgement should be used and if possible salvage the employee.


    People who applies rules without taking a situation into consideration are creating new problems for another employer.  We used to be a more understanding society, now we can cut people off at the knees and no mercy is shown.


    Extremes of being too lenient or too harsh are not good and provide no value to anyone.  We must take responsibility for our action and the actions of others if they are being supervised by us.


    Don't become mindless automatons, we will be competing with them soon enough.


    If we lose our humanity then we are nothing more than robots and they will fast be taking our places in the workforce so watch out!

    I owe my regular listeners an apology for not broadcasting the last two weeks

    in Self Help

    I had to take a time out for myself and did not broadcast for the last two weeks.  I am changing the time to 5PM on Saturday to see if I can encourage more people to listen and participate.


    There are so many things we need to talk about domestically and internationally that I sort of got lost.  For the time being I will be discussing domestic topics.


    There are so many things that we used to get free that we now have to pay for:


    1.  TV used to be free


    2.  Elementary school supplies were free


    3.  Parks were free


    4.  Community services were free


    5.  Land line phones used to be free


    6.  Airing up your tires at a gas station used to be free


    I can't remember but I am sure as I think of things before the next radio program I will come up with some more things that used to be free, that now we have to pay for


    What happened to the things that used to be free and now aren't?  If there is a buck to be made someone makes a new business - there is something wrong with this


    What do you think?
