TEXTING & DRIVING = RUSSIAN ROULETTE

There are no words that need be said while driving that can’t wait until you get where you are going.  No big plans later on or that crazy thing someone just did is worthy of a trip to the morgue.  It is a harsh and sad reality for so many families and friends of loved ones who have died while driving and texting, but it is also a reality that so many more just don’t seem to grasp.

 NT3I will be the first to admit that on occasion I steal a chance to send a quick text AT A REDLIGHT, but to jump into a texting conversation while operating a 2,000 pound battering ram just isn’t in the cards for me.  I have never updated a Facebook status or sent out a tweet while driving downt he road, and if you have then DAMMIT YOU NEED TO STOP BEFORE YOU KILL SOMEONE OR YOURSELF.  It should be that simple but Americans are completely crazy when it comes to social media and their need to keep up with what everyone else in their lives are doing. But what are they doing? Do you think that your BFF is riding down the road texting you and hanging onto your next text? If so then you are probably right, but two wrongs never make a right.

It has become a growing problem and many cities and States have passed NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING LAWS the Federal Government has chosen to stay mum on the problem.  To date there is not one, none, nada, no texting laws on the books in Congress except for a small clause attached to the NTSB’s amendment bill that makes it a Federal Law to take a picture of someones license plate or car accident where a death is involved. What? That’s what I said too.  The bottom line is that the Federal Gov’t could/should enact a law that the States are required to incorporate into their Laws. Until then, the right to choose (whether or not to text and drive) is more like a right to chance.

POW Bowe Bergdahl: Hero or Traitor?

This isn’t Hollywood and there aren’t any secret agendas in play here, are they?  Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released from captivity by the Taliban after a much maligned prisoner exchange by President Obama.  As the media hype grows, several of Bergdahls former platoon are taking to social media to express their concerns and opinions that Bergdahl deserted his fellow soldiers on the battle field, and they think he should be prosecuted instead of celebrated.

Seemingly taken straight out of the Showtime hit HOMELAND, the story surrounding Bergdahls five year imprisonment has just began. Here is a “war hero” captured and believed to be dead re-emerging due to a planned prisoner exchange with the Taliban.  Keep in mind that now that the US Gov’t has granted the exchange, there will no doubt be a push by foreign enemies to capture any/all U.S. soldiers in hopes of another prisoner swap situation.  President Obama has set a dangerous precedent in motion and the long-term effects could prove costly to the U.S. and it’s allies.  While it is far too soon to know if the claims of desertion will stand-up in military court, or whether the charges will ever be made against Bergdahl, he still has some explaining to do.  I am inclined to give the former POW the benefit of the doubt, I will not pass complete judgement until the truth comes out.  Rest assured that before Bergdahl is given the keys to Washington, DC or pushed into politics there will be much more investigation and fact checking than they did on Homeland. And should Bergdahl end up being the traitor, then one of the very beds that were emptied at Guantanamo by the prisoner exchange should be taken up by him.  God bless the soldiers who fight and die for our freedom, and to HELL WITH ANY SOLDIER THAT TURNS ON HIS FELLOW MAN AND COUNTRY. PERIOD.
