I don’t even know what to make of this story, but it seems like a 3-way collision of identity politics maybe with an icing of religion (leaving out only immigration). Two-way is spreading from the US to a lot of other places in the world…but we’re still ahead! https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46943364 More

A few years ago, my company was forced to spend millions of dollars proving that our products do not contain “conflict minerals,” or raw materials produced in war zones. A fool’s errand, if you ask me, because it is nearly impossible to prove where all of the raw materials used in any product originated.

I was just in my local Starbucks, and I noticed they have a small blackboard where they list “Starbucks Reserve Coffees.” One of today’s Reserve selections is D. R. Congo Kawa Kabuya.

This morning I read an excellent article by DC McAllister in The Federalist and came away with a feeling of despair. I appreciated what she wrote, but I felt there was even more to say about the abyss that has deepened between men and women as the result of the latest onslaught of accusations by women against men.

It’s been difficult at times to post on Ricochet, and nearly impossible to discuss politics with anyone who isn’t a conservative outside of Ricochet. With some of these conversations erupting into conflict, I decided to shed some light on the topic of conflict. It doesn’t matter which “side” you’re on: I’m talking to you. After all, if you experience serious conflict, it’s your own fault.

Let me explain a few things before I delve further into this topic. First, I use the term “serious conflict,” because every living human being experiences conflict several times a day, every day, whether or not you visit Ricochet. So I’m not talking about minor skirmishes, choices of whether to start your diet today or tomorrow, or whether to go out for Chinese or Italian. I’m talking about the heavy duty stuff. There is no permanent elimination of conflict—at least, not until you die.

Apologizing seems to be on my radar screen these days. The media (or Trump’s people) are demanding that Mitt Romney must apologize before Trump should consider making Romney Secretary of State. Here on Ricochet, many people have stated that they must receive apologies from others before they can move on following the election. So I […]

We can put a lot of value on living lives of harmony, fostering good relationships, following strong ethics, and practicing integrity. And yet we may talk a “tough line” that we do what we have to survive, that rules are meant to be broken, that it doesn’t count if you’re not caught. It’s easy to find ourselves […]

Don’t you love this title? I adapted it from a comment that a participant made in one of my training courses. People almost always snicker when they hear it, because it resonates with all of us: I’m not the problem; you are! So I’d like to explain how I worked with it in my training […]

I was mulling over how much I enjoy and appreciate Ricochet and how it has encouraged me to think about ideas that I take for granted. I’ve come to realize that being a Conservative doesn’t mean being staid and unchangeable. In addition, I thought that all of us might consider, as we look forward (with […]
