Don’t allow yourself to be controlled by social media.

Have you noticed that sometimes there are a series of posts that do not offer you the opportunity to respond to them. Do you think that is an accident? Possibly, but not necessarily so. 
    I call today’s generation the ZOMBIE generation because that’s what the kids look like these days, walking with a bemused smile, heads  bent over their smart phones.
     Parents who have not spent quality time with their kids by now might never get the chance to do so. Try reading a hard copy publication, and see how refreshing it is. Learn to play a musical instrument so you’re not stuck with YouTube.
     Take charge of your fate before social media does.

Don’t blame Obama for race relations.

As usual, when things don’t go right many people look for someone to blame. As usual, the President is a likely target. 
     Race is one of those subjects, like religion, and politics, where people tend to see what they want to see, their perspectives severely limited by their culture.
    Many blacks fault Obama for not playing the race card or not supporting those who did. Some whites and law enforcement blacks blame Obama for not reining in out of control blacks who show no respect for anyone, including law enforcement. 
   In my humble opinion, I think Obama is walking the middle of the road tightrope as best he can. Can you imagine a lame duck walking a tightrope?
