The “Memories Pizza” shop in Walkerton, IN drew much attention the week of April Fools’. The controversy will have ramifications that reach far beyond the issues themselves. This could be the beginning of arousing and informing the “Religious Right” in America.
Rush Limbaugh explained that many people are unaware of how the press conducts and exploits interviews. ABC’s channel 57 may receive some backlash from their own industry, or even their own affiliates, as this story has likely reduced general trust that the public has often placed in the press.
Progress toward foreseeable nation-wide revival in America has moved a lot since the last edition of the Encore in August. Michael’s Brown’s police shooter had just been named by the department. The first Ebola victim had been cured. Protests were beginning in Pakistan. And ISIS was on the rise.
Now, this recent Ebola episode seems to have peaked, as police-related “excessive force” protests are still peaking, being reported from New York to Chicago, even DC. Mike Bickle was approached by an influential man with four US Presidents calling the nation to pray. Limbaugh appeared in a rare interview on FOX to discuss the recent national turmoil. Yet, leaders in media and Chicago clergy paint the protests as “race” related rather than “excessive force” and Drudge headlines focused on sex scandals over the weekend. Where have national priorities gone?
Financially, America is spread so thin that it will take a miracle if the nation’s ability to keep world peace doesn’t evaporate within the next two years. · · · →
Many threats and predictable responses this week. It would be easier for authorities to identify threats if they were allowed to interpret normal people as having an understandable sense of humor, interpret feisty, angry people, who are itching for a fight as possible, unplanned “showdown confrontation” instigators, and wanna-Be’s as willing to tout the appearance of power that they don’t have. Law enforcement’s inability to identify these three different types of people leaves them vulnerable and easy to distract. While the TSA is busy patting-down a 10 year old, airport staff can smuggle box cutters past security.
Balling-up and easily being provoked to “lock-down” mode makes one an easier target. The way to overcome threats, whether disease or violence, is for authorities to keep joy, a sense of humor, wit, ingenuity, and to stay clever. Police and security must learn to differentiate between ordinary people who may have an ill sense of humor and danger threats who have no joy whatsoever and are constantly looking for a reason to feel “important”, even at the expense of someone else. · · · →
