    Your comments about being invited to the White House are spot on.

    Being invited to the White House by the President is bigger than one’s personal politics. As a whacko, far-right conservative, I’ve gotten funny looks from friends and coworkers when I told them I’d have gladly gone to the White House to meet Bill Clinton or Barack Obama, both Presidents when I worked for the Federal government. On top of that, I would have been respectful by not talking politics (such as telling them off about how bad they were for the country), and I would have been happy to get autographs, selfies, etc.

    Whenever an athlete (or anyone else) uses his refusal to go to the White House to make a political statement about the President, he’s saying he would go if the right person were in office. Put another way, he’s saying his ego is bigger than America, and it’s a crying shame . . .

    My wife and I just completed a Lake Michigan circuit. We went up the west shore through Wisconsin, across the UP, and down the east shore through Michigan. Lots of wineries and a few breweries and cideries were visited.

    1) The most evil hat is frosty the snowman’s magic hat because it is imbued with the powers of necromancy. Frosty the Snowman was actually a lich, an immortal undead necromancer bubbling with dark arcane energy.

    2) At 39:00 you eloquently discussed a subject near to my heart. Without patriotism or G-d, there is nothing but the self. Now being gay is considered holy by the left because it is a victim group.

    3) With regard to Zach, he is incapable of understanding that his opinions are not entirely the same as decency. That’s why he is comfortable enforcing his opinions on others.

    4) Britain has a high degree of incest among their gypsy population and among their Pakistani Muslim population. Sikhs used to practice cousin marriage but I believe they stopped awhile ago.

    Victor Frankl was a Jewish psychologist who somehow managed to survive the Nazi Holocaust. He is an impressive figure.

    I wish to stress that the true meaning of life is to be discovered in the world rather than within man or his own psyche, as though it were a closed system. I have termed this constitutive characteristic “the self-transcendence of human existence.” It denotes the fact that being human always points, and is directed, to something, or someone, other than oneself—be it a meaning to fulfil or another human being to encounter. The more one forgets himself—by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love—the more human he is and the more he actualizes himself. What is called selfactualization is not an attainable aim at all, for the simple reason that the more one would strive for it, the more he would miss it. In other words, self-actualization is possible only as a side-effect of self-transcendence. –Victor Frankl

    Martin Luther referred to G-d’s grace as being able to free man from the prison of the self. Theodore Dalrymple discusses people as being imprisoned in the eternal endless now. King Solomon mentioned that seeking a life of pleasure and wealth was ultimately vanity and vexation of spirit. This has been going on for along time.
