Liberals Think and Speak Like 5 Year-Olds

And they aren’t the only ones…

I don’t mean to insult 5 year-olds.  Sorry little guys and girls.

Evan Sayet

Evan Sayet

A very Liberal Jewish comic from New Yawk saw the light right after 9/11.  He grew up thinking “Democrats are good, Republicans are evil.”  But that changed.

His name is Evan Sayet. He couldn’t understand how Liberals, the left in this country, could fault the United States and its people for what happened that day – the blame that went on from the “America is at fault for everything” crowd.

Mr. Savet is now a conservative.  Here’s why:

Have you noticed how everything seems to be upside down?  Things that used to be considered right are now wrong and wrong behavior is now defended to the death.

Mr. Savet investigated and he has come up with an analysis that explains what happened and when, how it happened, and how it is impacting this country and its future.

He calls it the “Unified Field Theory of Liberalism.”  Critical rational judgment is being eliminated in America.  Not only is it disappearing, if you attempt to use it, you will be vilified.

You should be very afraid America.

This is a malignancy of the mind and spirit. It impacts our work ethic, our communication with each other, our economy, our values, and our morality.  Some call it political correctness; but, it’s deeper than that. Deeper than language.

The subcultural hostility on our way of life is breaking the back of the population through wrongheadedness, all from within.

And it’s not only those that brand themselves as a Liberal that are touched by this cultural and logical flip-flop, where right is now wrong and wrong is now right.  Many conservatives and the religious fall into the trap too.  One “must not judge” say the sheepl.

liberal logicThe problem with not judging, critical thinking to decide what the right thing to do is, that means there is no judgment about right and wrong.  There’s no judgment about anything.

And anyone that points out an obvious wrong is considered worse than the person that did the wrong in the first place. They are automatically labeled a hater, a racist, an abuser, intolerant …oh my God a judger.  Nothing could be worse than that right?

Didn’t we used to look up to folks that had great judgment and decision-making ability?  Now they are the hated.  Their motivations are questioned even though they have or promote great ideas.

They are attacked every way possible.  And not just the idea is attacked.  The person is maligned, investigations are launched, campaigns are waged.  All to destroy the person with good judgment that risks saying what they think.

Liberals, and many conservatives, now seek to find the wrong and fault in every issue and conversation, even in the most straightforward of topics, and they work hard to defend the opposite side.  They call it deep thinking.  I call it thinking too much, so much so that you’ll talk yourself into defending stupidity.

It’s a lack-of-logic and common sense that has penetrated our workplaces, schools, media, culture, courts, government, almost all areas of life in this country.  And if it doesn’t stop, if the insanity doesn’t reverse, we will implode just like ancient Rome and Greece did at the peak of their empires.

A great word picture to demonstrate the problem with Liberal logic, as remembered by Mr. Sayet about when he was five years-old:

When I was five years-old I wanted to buyout the New York Worlds Fair because it was closing just down the street from my neighborhood. I didn’t want it to close.  I told my father that we could move the monorail that went around the park and put it up alongside the Long Island Expressway.  It would ease congestion and pollution.

I really just wanted to do it because I liked to see it and ride on it. I didn’t want it to go away.  I used adult concerns to justify my childish desire.

His father explained to him that it would be very expensive, technically it would be hard to engineer, the bureaucracy to get the right-of-way, they wouldn’t be able to re-coop the cost with ticket sales, and so on…

Mr. Sayet’s father used grownup judgment to explain why it couldn’t be done – in fact it shouldn’t be attempted.  Critical thinking.  An adult showed him, based on judgment, the folly of the idea.

As a five year-old, Mr. Sayet didn’t accept the judgment because he didn’t get what he wanted.

That’s just like the conversations today with a modern Liberal.  If they don’t get what they want, no matter how stupid the idea, they throw a tantrum.  The modern day tantrum is to label their “enemy” as a bigot, hater, etc.

Mr. Sayet has figured it out.  His voice should be heard, listened too, and acted on.  Don’t let Liberals shut you up, destroy your critical thinking and judgment.  Speak out about what is wrong and what is right about an idea and America.

Is It Time?

Patriots to prevent ruin

I believe today we have almost exclusively vain and aspiring men and women in politics at the national level.  Where are the patriots Samuel Adams talked about?

Where is the national media to keep these climbers in check?

Just One Crisis of Many: Trey Gowdy Demands Answers On Benghazi

The press didn’t answer the questions. Still waiting:

Well, Mr. & Mrs Media, where are ya?

“If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” –Samuel Adams

Are You Ready to Rise Up as a Dad (or even as a Single Parent)?

It’s 4:50 a.m. and I’m waiting at Denny’s for Rob Otto.

Rob has been a family friend plus a math tutor and mentor to my teenage son for quite a while.  I met him because his wife used to babysit my son before they got married.

Rob has also been a good friend while I’m going through a divorce, a really ugly one.

Why 5 a.m.?  That’s the only time both of us can get together.  We eat breakfast and talk.

This time of day doesn’t bother Rob… he’s a graduate of West Point Military Academy and a former officer in the Army Airborne Rangers.  5 a.m. is “sleeping in” for those guys.

Today plays out the same as usual… Rob shows up at 4:59 sharp.  He listens to me, points out passages in the Bible that give the answer to the problem we’re talking about, and he listens some more.

It’s an amazing gift and blessing.

God bless Rob and the few like him. It’s rare to find someone with wisdom, toughness, honesty, humility, and honor.

Need Rob in your life? Read on to see how you can meet with Rob at any time of the day or night to become a leader in your family.

=============

Seems like a lifetime has passed but those breakfast meetings were only 8 years ago.

Back then Rob held me accountable to stay on a straight and narrow path to try and get my kids through divorce.

He also gave me super advice about raising my kids – doing it as a leader with Jesus Christ and His teaching as the foundation and guide.  That hasn’t made me into “Super Dad.”  I’m still just a sinner that is God’s work in progress.  But it has made a difference.

My oldest son is now 24, married and a member of a church, in the Marine Corps, and a Business Management major with great grades at the University of South Carolina.  He’s my hero for many reasons; but, mostly because 8 years ago he was being driven to total failure with little hope to turn it around.

Rob was a big part of laying the foundation underneath my son, and under me as a dad, before and during tragedy, loss, and ruin, so that my son could transform himself, with God’s help, into a squared away, solid man.

Now Rob has compiled that wisdom and more into a book he’s just published:

Rise Up! For Dad’s Who Want to Lead Boldly

It’s amazing how close Rob’s book hits home.  My story as a beginning father isn’t much different than most men, even Christian men.

When Rob asked a Sunday school class of married couples how many had seen their fathers take the lead in spiritual matters in their childhood homes. Only four people out of fifty raised their hands. He is convinced that most of us did not see a good example from our fathers in this particular area.

Most guys simply don’t know how to be the spiritual leaders their families need.  The attitudes and action weren’t modeled for them so they weren’t taught what to do.

That was certainly the case in my childhood.  My mother was expected to be the spiritual leader when I was growing up and so I expected that in my marriage. My drastic mistake.

There are many other reasons men don’t step up to lead their families the way they should.  They are outlined in the book, not to beat men up, but to let you know you aren’t alone.

Rob will get you started with what you need to know to lead your family, especially your children, boldly.  He provides a lifelong approach for a family with kids of any age still at home.

The book includes:

>> All the reasons you aren’t the spiritual leader you could be. Some will be very familiar.  Page 15.

NOTE: The book is not about judging you.  It’s a pat on the back and a helpful point in the right direction.

>> Why your wife and children need you to be the spiritual leader in your home.  Page 30.

>> God commanded fathers to teach their children about Jesus and His Truth, not churches and youth pastors. Churches and pastors are partners in the process, but should not be expected to be in charge of leading our children.  Page 39.

>> Why we should instruct our children. Page 53.

>> You are not too late!  Even if your kids are in high school, it is never too late.  Learn how!  Page 65.

>> Do you want your relationship with your wife to grow stronger?  Lead and grow now!  Page 90.

>> See actual conversations inside Rob’s family to learn how spiritual leadership works, even in awkward situations.  Page 126.

>> If you do your job well, your children will be well grounded in their faith for life and have a worldview based on truth, not what is portrayed on TV or other wrongful influencers. Page 160.

>> How do you and your family respond to storms?  Page 188.

>> What are the benefits of your leadership?  Page 202.

There’s a lot more to this book than what I’ve shown above.  These are just examples.

You’ll be surprised at the depth of teaching Rob’s book offers.  And even though the topic is thoroughly researched and scripture based, it doesn’t read like a textbook.  It’s actually entertaining.  It “sounds” like Rob.

Another surprising aspect of the book is that you can apply these principles even if you are a single dad or single mom.  Your children, AND YOU, will be blessed greatly!

If you do what’s in this book, you’ll gain from a lifestyle change that will amaze you.  I’ve seen it in action in Rob’s family, with my 24 year old, and with my youngest son, who is now 4.

“Unemployed need not apply!” Hiring Policies

Image courtesy of: Social Media Camp 2009

That headline is true!  Not only are many employers not willing to interview people that are unemployed, but the candidate better be under 40, have a great credit score, have no “digital dirt” on the Internet, and zero health issues in the past or on the horizon.

Believe me they check, even if they say they don’t.  I’ve been blessed to continue to be employed but I’m personal friends with several recruiters that have over 20 years experience or own their own head-hunting companies and the requirements they are given are usually the list I’ve outlined.

How many companies have cut half, three-quarters, or more of their workforce?  The performance issues were at the top, not the folks that were cut. Many of those senior executives are still there… continuing to make their organizations unsuccessful.

At the first and second line level of management, many times the hiring manager doesn’t know these silly obstacles that are set by the company.  It’s “secret stuff” the HR department dreams up.  Often the hiring manager would love to have someone with a lot of experience that can make big things happen.  And they don’t care about the candidate’s credit score or that they are 50 or older.

But HR won’t bring those candidates in because of the perceived overall cost to the company.  It’s shortsighted.

With the real rate of unemployment – 18%+ nationwide; the increasing number of divorces (over 50%); problems with real estate, bankruptcies, and foreclosures; health problems because of stress, etc… there are millions that are “un-hirable” according to some company policies.

You wouldn’t want to work for them anyway. They’re weak!  Would a pro coach you want to work for hire players based on a spreadsheet?  There’s a lot more to it than that.

It sounds impossible, but there’s hope for good people looking for work.  They just have to do it differently.  Be positive and confident – not down in the dumps!

If you’re in those categories I listed, increase your contact with current relationships (get out of the house!), go get more relationships – social media relationships, face-to-face relationships – to look for a job.

Resume blasting doesn’t work.  If someone knows you personally and you are a great person with a super track record from good employers, they’ll fight for you to get into an organization.  They’ll even fight HR.  And the company will do better with you than the ones that pass you by based on faulty logic.

I’ve been a hiring manager for many years at large and medium sized companies.  In EVERY case I’ve gone around the HR department to find the best people.  The candidates that HR found were all middle-of-the-road.  No superstars.  You can’t beat the competition with middle-of-the-roaders.

I depend on relationships and sites like LinkedIn to find top talent.  I just checked and today I have 1,736 real contacts in my cellphone.  I know who they are and they know me.  You can’t find great teammates looking at a stack of resumes, a spreadsheet, a credit report, or an actuary table.  That’s called LAZY management.

Sorry for the rant but I know a lot of great people looking for work that ran into some bad circumstances, completely out of their control, and they are getting the run-around by weak employers.

They are doing what I suggested and many are getting jobs now even in this economy.  Go make some new friends!
