One Bold Step

Everyone talks a great game about changing the world, or even just their lives, but courage, while free, comes with one price: action. I want to share my bold step with you, and, if you write to me with your bold step, and it's timely, I'll post it on my site every couple of weeks, if not more often.

All the More Reason to Pick Up a Dictionary

Late last week, I tied together the Debra Lafave nonsense on "The Today Show" with the Foley scandal on Capitol Hill and a few dictionary definitions of the word "violence." Today, my tie-ins come full circle with Bill Maher's latest on "Real Time." 99.9% of the time, I love his work. Except this time, with the help of FindLaw, one can easily access The Preamble to our Constitution and see the problem with his Friday show come to light:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Note that "We the People of the United States" chose to do the following on our own soil -- right here in the U. S. A.

Bill, it's time to clean house. I couldn't agree with you more. As long as violence at home is not as important as violence in war, neither problem will ever really be solved.

NEW RULE: Bill Maher, please pick up the dictionaries I have referenced before you embarrass yourself again.

Best regards,

Your Humble Blogger
