A Challenge for my fellow conservatives, in two parts.

Part 1: Take a day (or 2) away from sharing and posting on social media. Instead, READ social media - look critically at what is being shared and spread. This is how we communicate with each other, this is how we share ideas, encourage actvism, teach one another, inform one another. Are you seeing conservative ideas being promoted or taught?

Is it, as I suspect, leftist ideas that are taught or even assumed, while there is some argument against them, but very little by way of actual promotion of conversatism. We know that the public isn't learning conservatism is school or at work or from entertainment. Where on earth would people see conservative ideas? How in the heck are they supposed to know what it is?

Just take a day or two to observe the situation.

Part 2: Re-engage in social media with the goal of filling the void. There are plenty of folks "sharing the news", you aren't needed for that. There are plenty of voices complaining and putting their spin on the news as to how things are bad, you aren't needed for that either. There are VERY few voices actually telling anyone what conservatism is and why it's better. You are needed.

When you share a news story, share it with your commentary PROMOTING CONSERVATISM. Tell how you think things could be better if done differently, highlight whatever part is conservative and good.

Let people who read your social media content actually be able to learn about conservatism.

Give it a try. We need more conservative promoters and teachers. Fill a niche. We don't need more people talking about how bad this or that thing or person is.

Chipotle data breach leads to illegal ATM withdrawal
Somebody help me understand this please...
he allegedly used the login credentials from more than 40 people whose data was taken during the Chipotle Data breach in May. The data was used to clone fake credit cards which were then used with the PINs to withdraw the money from the ATM.

They hacked the POS software, and got credit card numbers, then made new cards with those numbers - how did they get the PINs to be able to get cash out of an ATM?

Nice Video from the Trump folks
America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears; inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past; & guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.

I haven't looked for it on youtube, you'll need to click over to twitter and watch. It's a pretty inspiring and moving 3 minutes.

Actor Insists ‘Emoji Movie’ Will Fight Trump, Make Young People ‘Adopt Progressive Values’
For those still wanting to deny that culture shapes rather than just reflects, the folks CREATING the culture are sometimes really pretty blatant about what they're doing.

Feel free to enjoy whatever cultural products you want, just don't deny the impact. It's far more significant than any political stuff you might be doing.

My heart goes out to the daughter, what will become of her?

The father is clearly a horrible person.

Free market FTW - even in places you think it would be impossible.
Many residents of northern Canada have access to cheaper goods through Amazon Prime rather than stores selling state-subsidized products.

“It’s incredible—we’ve never seen an approval rating continue to rise this consistently,” one political commentator said. “Most regular people at least attempt to appraise their own performance based on external results, but Trump’s self-approval seems to be completely removed from objective reality.”

Will we ever see a headline "Mueller refuses to expand probe"?
Of course we won't.

Don't let others tell you whom to be impressed by. Over the last few years, as new public figures have come into view, many have been introduced to the public as "very impressive" people with really high intelligence or integrity or political skill or whatever. We haven't been allowed to just get to know these folks by their works, we've been informed that we must admire them because they are special.

Not a one of these people has lived up to the hype.
Robert Mueller
James Comey
Preet Bharara
Marco Rubio
Scott Walker (as POTUS candidate)

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure you guys can think of many many others.

So when someone you respect tells you that this other person is just super awesome totally amazing and really above reproach - BE WARY. It's a hype machine.
