Hackers create 3D printed TSA Safe Skies master key, they also released blueprints. While most people did not know that TSA has a master key, now that you know what will you pack? Seems nothing is safe in this day and age…

Way to much violence in the world, was going to post a ton of links to all of the craziness going on, but hell people just open up the front page of any newspaper, online news station you will see enough to break your heart. Violence is not the answer unless you are protecting yourself or others. Then and only then is extreme violence the right thing to do.

Every day seems we have more and more people who do not understand the 1st Amendment

While it might not seem like a big deal, some young people in college find it offensive if someone has a different view then they do. Cal State canceled Ben Shapiro compared him to the KKK …

Cato has a well written article about the need for America cool off our relationship with Turkey. Sad truth is we need Turkey in NATO yet we can’t have a NATO member treating its citizens the way that they are being treated right now.
Enough! America Must Distance Itself from Its Rogue Turkish Ally

Part of the article: As part of that process, Washington should, as it applies to Turkey, immediately repudiate the provision in article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty that considers an attack on one member as an attack on all and obligates the United States to render assistance. It is bad enough for U.S. leaders to risk the lives of the American people to defend a liberal democratic ally that is not essential to the security of the republic. It is much worse to incur such a risk to defend a thinly disguised dictatorship that is not essential to America’s security. Yet that is the situation we now face with Turkey. We need to adopt a much more cautious relationship with an increasingly unsavory regime.

Michael Jordan has something to say to all Americans , Jordan who rarely speaks out about anything, hits a 3 pointer with this one.MICHAEL JORDAN: ‘I CAN NO LONGER STAY SILENT’ Short blurb but hit the link above to read the entire thing.

I was raised by parents who taught me to love and respect people regardless of their race or background, so I am saddened and frustrated by the divisive rhetoric and racial tensions that seem to be getting worse as of late. I know this country is better than that, and I can no longer stay silent. We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers – who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – are respected and supported.

I will close this today with a simple reminder, We all are apart of the Human Race, the country you live in should be the only label that is used to describe you. I am an American Citizen.

It’s about People stupid

Make no mistake folks, this race problem we have is because people can’t seem to understand ,that hate is a learned emotion. You are not born with it, it is something that you have to learn to do. Just like anything else you learn you can also unlearn it. How do you unlearn an emotion? By using logic, looking for the facts, understanding that it is an emotion and you have been conditioned to responded a certain way when faced with a person who is different then you.

The only person you can change is you.  How do you change? Its not always easy but you start small. You will have a hard time changing a learned behavior over night. However you can start by just listening to those who you have been taught to hate. In most cases you will find out that the individual person is nothing like you have been lead to believe.   In fact you might find out that person has the same hopes, dreams, and fears as you do. We all want the same basic things.  If you look at each person as an individual your hate will fade away.

There will still be people who don’t deserve your kindness, friendship or respect, but that will be because of something they have done as an individual instead of because of the color of their skin, their religious beliefs or whatever you have been conditioned to hate.

Some people will always hold onto that hate because it’s the only thing they think they have. Sad smile
