SORT BY Relevancy
I want to discuss a wide range of ideas today regarding contemporary political debate in America under the general heading of conservatives vs liberals - rights vs privileges. I believe that one of the great things Ronald Reagan did was to speak about freedom and rights instead of always discussing political minutia and macro economics. Reagan inspired Americans to once again believe in and seek freedom - the freedom with which we were endowed by our Creator. So today I want to talk about that and how liberals seek to redefine or fundamentally transform our unalienable rights into mere privileges bestowed upon us by a sometimes "benevolent" tyranny.
Although we will continue our conversation about out-of-the-closet conservative David Mamet and his revelatory book, "The Secret Knowledge," we will spend a little time on a recent theatrical controversy. Specifically, we will tackle the question of whether a colege theatre production should make changes to a script if the local community complains about its content. I posed this question recently on Facebook and got a number of insightful and challenging comments from my listeners (and others). Join me today as we ponder a difficult issue (and David Mamet!).
Rod Thorn, the NBA's dean of discipline, has a tough decision to make. Should Dwight Howard's elbowing foul against Andrew Bogut from Game 4 of the Western Conference finals be upgraded to a flagrant-2, which would force Howard to miss Game 5.
The precedent is there, whether it was Al Horford getting ejected from Game 3 of the Atlanta-Cleveland series or J.R. Smith getting suspended two games for elbowing Jae Crowder of Boston during the first round.
Elbows to the head are a serious matter .... but so, too, is keeping the NBA playoffs interesting ... and keeping them on the air for as many days as possible before everything shuts down for a week prior to the start of the NBA Finals. All in all, this year's playoffs have not been great.
Let's face it ... the Rockets probably have no shot whatsoever in Game 5 if Howard is suspended.
And let's face this, too: The NBA has a vested interest in having a competitive Game 5 in Oakland, whether or not the Rockets can extend it to a Game 6.
So what do I expect Thorn to do? And how will that news be, ahem, announced?
The answers come in this podcast with Newy Scruggs on NBCSports Radio early Tuesday morning.
What is controversy good for? Getting attention sure. Making a splash yeah. But it can also be a training tool to help us as entrepreneurs learn how to communicate better, and help our followers bei they audience or customers enter a new world of opportunity.

Men can be disrespectful of women and this happens for many reasons. What I can't understand is why ? Most of us have mothers sisters nieces cousins. So why the unethical behavior towards women . Men need to do some soul searching. We continue devalue the role of women in our lives in every aspect. I
