    IoUC: Online Civility with Peggy Parks

    in Technology

    You have probably heard of "haters" or "trolls" or "cyber-bullies."  Where did they come from?  Why do they attack?  Has the digital world of social media and mobile created a new underground culture of bad behaviour?  Join Deb and Tom as they converse with Peggy Parks, a leading civility expert form the Parks Image Group, Inc. (www.theparksimagegroup.com) about the lack of civil behaviour online and what we can do to make the Internet a safer place to express ourselves and disagree in a respectful manner with those who we do not share the same perspective.  Respecting boundaries, taking responsibility for our own online comments and conduct, and setting a good example for others are some of the topics we will hit on during the interview.


    About Peggy: Peggy Parks has the opportunity to see people in business settings as well as social ones. A key element in her observations is noticing how people treat each other. That’s how she discovered a lack of civility in the world and decided to do her part to change that.  As the Southeast’s leading Civility Expert, Peggy views good manners, the ability to listen to learn and to appreciate other viewpoints as key elements for civility. And a person who practices civility actually polishes their personal image.  Featured in numerous publications, radio and TV, Peggy is pleased to count UPS, Southern Company and The Coca-Cola Company among her clients. Peggy can be reached at Peggy@TheParksImageGroup.com or 404/266-3858.

    Civility AND Reason: Lunch with Louden 6/4/15

    in Politics

    “Civility without reason, or reason without civility, are disingenuous attempts to understand one another.” Call 301-259-1869 and share your thoughts on this statement. We might play your comment on Lunch with Louden!


    Background:


    Poll after poll tells us that Americans agree with one another more than they disagree. This appears to be true whether the topic is the toxic effects of money in politics, the over-reach of corporate persons, inequality within justice and law enforcement, or who should be allowed to vote. So why does the country feel so polarized?


    We have talked before about how word tricks are used to make us appear unlike one another: that polarization is the antidote to unity.


    Coffee Party USA has taken the position that civility and reason are the the keys to unlocking the linguistic doors between the many houses of American thought. But civility is often discounted as manners over substance, and reason is often discounted as “your” facts.


    IMHO civility and reason only become powerful when exercised together. Civility without reason and reason without civility are just more of “the same”: noise that passes for conversation and the verbal jousting that passes for attempts to understand one another.


    If the goal is to see where we do agree, where we can join to make change, then certainly the concept of civility AND reason are worth a try.

    Where did civility go, I'm missing it!

    in Spirituality

    Spirited was actually on the board of an organization called "Civility-at-Large" years ago.  The intent was to focus on the issues surrounding the growing lack of civility between people of all walks of life.  The subject still is an intense one for her, as well as most of us, as we go along our way each day.


    From Bullying and lack of senstivity to where to draw the line in our interpersonal relationships in all areas of our lives, it's all quite a spiritual topic! 


    Tune in to what promises to be a show that some may not want to hear, and others may leave applauding!

    The Debate That Cried Out for Civility and Reason: Lunch with Louden 11/05/15.

    in Politics

    The most recent primary candidate debate was a political scream for help. “Are you a comic book version of a president?” I was shocked and remain concerned about the lack of civility and reason.


    Those of us who value civility and reason now have a perfect compass point for our stand: that we, the people, deserve adult, fact based, and respectable discussion on meaningful issues before this republic’s democracy. 


    On November 6th, the day after this broadcast, there will be a candidate forum moderated by Rachel Maddow, and on November 14th the next primary candidate debate will be moderated by John Dickerson. Charlie Rose asked Mr. Dickerson if the last debate was "a teachable moment"? I think it was. And you?


    You can share your observations about this most recent debate and thoughts about your hopes for future debates by calling in, participating in chat during the broadcast OR you can join the ongoing conversaton between now and air time on Lunch with Louden

    in Lifestyle

    THIS WEEK U-TUBE DOWN HERE IN FLORIDA WAS ALL ABLAZE WITH A VIDEO OF SOMEONE SPEWING HER WRATH AT ANOTHER IN A PUBLIC PLACE.  I'LL SAVE THE PARTICULARS FOR THE SHOW BUT SUFFICE IT TO SAY THAT THE WORLD SEEMS TO BE DIVIDED REGARDING SUCH ACTIONS THESE DAYS. SOME SAY THAT IT IS APPROPRIATE AND DESERVED, OTHERS THAT IT SHOW A LACK OF CIVILITY AS OUR SOCIETY BECOME CRASS AND CHAOTIC.  THE FACT THAT WE HAVE LOST OUR WAY AS A SOCIETY IN THAT WE CAN NO LONGER DISAGREE AND STILL BE CIVIL SHOWS HOW DESENSITIZED WE HAVE BECOME TO THE VIEW OF OTHERS WITH WHOM WE DISAGREE.  AND SO THE QUESTION IS: WHAT WOULD JESUS HAVE US DO AS CHRISTIANS? AND HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS REACT TO ACTIONS THEY FIND ABHORRENT?  IT'S A TOUGH SUBJECT, BUT WE'LL TAKE A STAB AT IT ON THIS WEEK'S SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN.  SINCE WE'RE MADE IN GOD'S IMAGE, SHOULDN'T WE LIVE IN A MANNER BEFITTING OF HIM?  HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US SUNDAY MORNING AT 7:30

    Kelly OConnell Show: Time, Tide & Trump

    in Politics

    The tide has risen, the sands have shifted again in the GOP Prez election. With the sky darkening, clouds begin to swirl overhead, as Ted Cruz stares into a vortex of annihilation. Donald Trump is currently at 996 delegates. He needs by direct vote, or by hook ‘n crook, another 241. Bearing in mind Trump should get 100 delegates from California, and with the winner take all Indiana leaning towards Donald, and Legendary Bobby Knight’s blessing, he might only need another hundred. This is game/set/match territory.


    The insufferable Cruz has misplayed a bad hand, with repeated last-minute mistakes. For example, he signed pacts with demons to rep the GOP and he also lay with Kasich. And what did he get for this selling of soul? What jewel of respect from the Grand Old Party did he harvest from such abasement? He's “Lucifer in the Flesh” according to John Boehner. That’s quite a thank you! And Cruz then chooses 1 delegate Carly “Peppermint Patty” Fiorina as his VP. A laughingstock! Meanwhile, innumerable articles plumb why Cruz is universally despised by his colleagues.


    So Trump has basically sewn this puppy up with a last minute surge. If he doesn’t poll to 1237, he can still pick up many free range delegates. So it’s buhbye time for the hated Cruz & inept/ self-worshipful Kasich. Next comes Trump pivoting to Swillery Swineherd Clinton, who acts like the obvious winner -- when not dodging the FBI. The real puzzler is how Trump has tied Hill’obeans at 38% before even going after her.


    Locally, we see continued disintegration of civility between the Sheriffs and Golden Earing Garrett. For his latest hijinks, Garret & hapless handpuppet Wayne Handcock hired a flunky to cook up a $48,000 study. The laughingstock by Dr Weiss was complete as he cannibalized another work for a 6 page cut n paste. Heavens to Murgatroyd. Advantage Kiki. And now, Open Topic Friday, Sportsfans.
