thx to +Dan Thompson  for this.

"...there are people who believe stupid, irrational, hateful things about other people and it’s okay to let those words in our ears sometimes without rolling out the guillotines."
 
A near-perfect summation of why I've grown quieter online, and why that's probably a bad idea.

Long, but very worth the read. And then some solid time for reflection. 
American discourse is in a bubble of subprime outrage and subprime apologies—and it's having a chilling effect on free speech.

NSFW ... be warned...
Him: That guy needs to be shot in the head.
Me: Why?
Him: You know how many people died for that flag? Who the fuck is he to not stand up?
Me: Why did they all die? No, I know... I want to hear what you think the reason is.
Him: Fuck you, man. They died for our freedoms and shit. They died to protect our freedoms.
Me: Like what? What freedoms? 
Him:  The freedom to be an American. To think what you want. To say what you want...
Me: So, isn't his right to decide to stand or not one of those rights that all those people died for?
Him: Fuck him. And fuck you, too.

Some, especially many of the older generations, feel that what they were told about America, freedom and other countries was true. They are a bit more romantic and less cynical.

I have seen the truth... and many people couldn't care less.
I’m a bit of a snob. A nerd, a geek and a smug, superior know-it-all, hell-bent on making you feel stupid. Okay, maybe not so harsh as all that, but I have been accused of being a grammar nazi, and, ahem, argumentative when i...

The Sweetwater Project: Can You Help Me Out a Bit?

Many of you who have known me for a while, know that I'm a huge music lover. I always have been. There was a time when that love disappeared for a while. But when I started +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS over 2 1/2 years ago, that love rebounded in a huge way. Every single Friday night has shown me that love all over again, and our page and community is stronger than ever!

For four long months now, I've been on a long-term layoff. I've struggled to find just the right job in my area. Now, there is a tremendous opportunity at +Sweetwater Sound which is right in my backyard! 

The position is all about social media and marketing (my strengths) and I want to ask each of you to help me in a big way today.

1. First, I'd like to see if we can try trend #sweetwatersound ! I want to show the VP there the POWER of Google+!

2. Second, I'd like to ask if you'd consider attacking some of the posts on their page (feel free to add it also if you like) with comments (and mentioning I sent you there). I know you are all incredible, and you know I don't ask too much for myself that often.

3. Third, I'd like to ask my very best friends (who have known me here for some time) to consider sharing our story - how we met, the things we've done together, how my music page has affected you, the impact I've made on you etc - directly to the man at Sweetwater who can make a difference. He's Jeff McDonald, Vice President of Human Resources. His email is: jeff_mcdonald@sweetwater.com That's public, so I don't think it would be a problem if he received a few great letters on my behalf. (It would be terrific if a few Googlers weighed-in!)

4. Lastly, I would consider it a personal favor if anyone helped spread this post for me. The last time I was in a jam, so many of you were incredible, helping me to trend #GetSeanAJob that +byron rempel  started on my behalf. Well, this is now the longest layoff of my life, and my need is urgent: I need to work again, and I know I could make a huge impact for Sweetwater, here and across all their social media platforms. If you do decide to share this, thank you, and you know I have nothing but love for you all!
