Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Charity Starts With the Family

This is something that my parents taught me and as you grow older, you start to realize that the only honesty that exists in your life are the life lessons given to you by mom and dad. Everything else outside of that circle is just meaningless leverage that people use to control you. Charity begins with the family.  It’s the bedrock upon which you build your brick built house.

But if you scale that up to include the people around you, when you become a congressman, a president, or a leader, you take an oath to protect your people. Your responsibility is to feed them, reassure them, teach them, grow them. It’s your responsibility to be patient with them if they make mistakes, and you praise them when they do good.

You do this because you understand that the world is a dangerous place. That everyone is out looking only after their own. You do it because you understand that nobody aside from the people you govern will ever reciprocate to the same degree of which you give to them.

You can argue in private that they simply don’t have the capacity to pay back what they owe, or you can say that they are bereft of morals and are unworthy of reprieve. It’s a waste of time to think about these things.

What matters the most is your people. Your family.

Virtue Signalling

Virtue Signalling refers to the public expression of an opinion on a given topic primarily for the purpose of displaying one’s moral superiority before a large audience to solicit their approval. Online, the practice is often associated with various platitudes shared on social media that proclaim one’s political affiliation or stance on a variety of hot-button issues related to social justice; it has been criticized by some as a shallow attempt at improving social status within a particular group.

 

No sympathy for the homeless.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ordered the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to do something about homeless individuals on subways and in stations.

Cuomo says recent incidents, like the time a homeless man threatened passengers with a hammer, are unacceptable, and CBS2 political reporter Marcia Kramer says he’s now giving the MTA an ultimatum — fix it or else.

“Address the homeless problem. It’s worse than ever. It’s inhumane. It’s unnecessary. It’s delaying trains more than it ever has before,” Cuomo said.

Taxation without representation.

All 10 Democratic candidates on stage Thursday night said they supported government-provided health insurance for illegal immigrants.

After the candidates spent most of the first half hour of the debate discussing how each would handle providing healthcare in the U.S., host Savannah Guthrie asked the contenders to raise their hands if their individual vision for government coverage would include undocumented immigrants.

All 10, including front-runner Joe Biden, put their hands up.
