Mom and I really enjoyed the Klein ISD board trustee forum tonight held at Glorious Way Church. Being a candidate your first time is very intimidating. They all did well. It’s great to see all of this interest in serving the community, especially our children. There are 4 seats up for election. #TimeToVote

Bari Weiss (former WSJ, NYT) has really become a must-listen-to voice fighting for classic "l" liberal values in this markedly illiberal time. I'm not talking about party in any sense. Just principles that we all used to agree on like "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." "Common Sense with Bari Weiss" is a regular must-read of mine.

Excellent thought-provoking, relevant interview with Bari on the Ben Shapiro podcast posted today. #FreeSpeechMatters #FreeThoughtMatters #BringBackCommonSense #MarketplaceOfIdeas #CanTheCenterHold

CFISD Trustee Candidate Forum | Oct 12th, 2021 by Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District

For all those in CyFair ISD, there’s an election coming up Tuesday, November 2nd where you can have your voice heard for three positions on the school board.

There is probably no more important position than a local school board in the daily effect it has on what happens or doesn’t happen in achieving educational outcomes for your children or grandchildren.

Don’t skip the election this year just because the presidency is not on the ballot!

The school district held a candidates’ forum this week. About 2 hrs but worth your time to hear the candidates:  https://livestream.com/accounts/6787727/events/9877417

In a YouGov poll of more than 11,000 US adults, Americans tend to believe that the US is indeed the greatest nation on Earth, by 50% to 31%. But there are some notable differences among different generations and racial groups.

When ‘Never Again’ Becomes ‘Again and Again’

This is an unmitigated disaster. Trump started down this road and now Biden is sealing the fate of those who believed in and counted on us. So many Americans gave their lives to make sure the Taliban could not harbor and support another Bin Laden or his ilk. But here we are headed to square one again. A spectacular foreign policy failure unfolding before our eyes. I believe we will rue this day in bitter tears. Praying for the Afghan people. God help them as evil smothers the land once again. 😢

The U.S. has a responsibility to protect Afghans from the mass atrocities of the Taliban.

Get Ready for the 'No-Buy' List

This piece by David Sacks (General Partner and Co-Founder of Craft Ventures. Previously: Founder/CEO of Yammer. Original COO of PayPal), posted by Bari Weiss (former NYT), should make all Americans, no matter your side of the aisle, sit up and take notice, even if you haven't been tracking the growing #cancelculture issue. Big tech and fintech cos activating as an arbitrary, monolithic juggernaut declaring who is to be disfavored and shut out of the staples of American life is a danger to all. Today's favored are always tomorrow's rejects. Protecting free speech matters. This is only a republic so long as we can keep it. https://bariweiss.substack.com/p/get-ready-for-the-no-buy-list

First Big Tech censored speech. Now they want to shut deplorables out of the financial system.

There is a lot of confusion and obfuscation going on with the topic of Critical Race Theory tenets being taught in our K-12 public schools. This podcast by Bari Weiss (formerly NYT) hosting a debate with Chris Rufo and David French is very informative if you are trying to clear up and catch up. 1-1/2 hr-ish but worth your time to gain more light than heat.

Bono: "America is an Idea"

Just thinking today on what our country has meant not just for Americans but to people all over the world. Bono with U2 really sums it up so well. Anyone who has traveled outside the US knows what America means to the world.

America has been a bright light for millions. Being a proud (not arrogant or blind) American is a good thing. I am not ashamed nor daunted that we have more work to do together, not alone in our silos but linked arm in arm. 

Having to work for a more perfect union shouldn’t discourage us. It should unite us in service to each other and for our country. We can celebrate the good, the noble, the beautiful, the potential as well as mourn (and get to work) when injustice was and is done.

What we must not do is lose hope…ever! Not in each other, not in our country. Losing hope is the enemy of our souls and extinguishes the light we see in ourselves, each other, and our country.

July 4th is a commemoration of a truly new idea dawning (not accomplished) in the history of the world…”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Happy birthday, America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea!

Honoring my father-in-law today, George Bahorich. He served during WWII and was part of the team that liberated Kaufering VII (subcamp of Dachau concentration camp). I thank God for our soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice believing that America is worth fighting for. And may God bless and protect our troops now serving because they continue to believe.

Watch Sen. Tim Scott's full response to Biden's speech

I finally listened to Senator Tim Scott‘s Republican rebuttal to the Biden address this week. Usually these rebuttals are terrible and not very effective or compelling.

However, I encourage you to listen to Senator Scott‘s words. I think they carry a lot of weight and moment for the times we are living in. As expected, there are R vs D perspectives but the overall message from Sen Scott is not about what Ds have done all wrong or what Rs have gotten all right, but about rolling up our sleeves collectively and coming together in a commonsense, common ground way to move forward. 

I wish we could count on a consequential segment of our political class encouraging working together, as Sen Scott does, to do necessary work that can also unite us behind those efforts to benefit all the American people, but that seems unlikely. Too much power is at stake for the parties. It would take a true miracle. We can either build to win or build to last. It’s up to us at the end of the day...

Less than 15 minutes. Worth your time no matter your party.
