The Inhumanity of the Left

 

With one disaster unfolding after another with the Biden administration, the focus in America (at least on the right) has been on mistakes, poor planning, confusion, and mismanagement, just to name a few problems. But buried inside all these missteps is an attitude that the Democrats would vehemently deny but permeates everything they do: They are inhumane, and they are either clueless about the implications of their governance or they simply don’t care. Their inhumanity dominates their actions in Afghanistan, the steps they’ve taken (or haven’t taken) on the border, and their handling of the pandemic. I looked up the Merriam-Webster synonyms for “inhumane” and selected the words that I thought best applied:

callous, cold-blooded, compassionless, desensitized, hard, hard-hearted, heartless, insensitive, ruthless, soulless, stonyhearted, unfeeling, unmerciful, unsparing, and unsympathetic

Yotam Dagan, a former Navy SEAL commander, certified clinical psychologist with expertise in Combat stress reaction (PTSD) and hostage negotiator, joins Carol Roth to talk about his journey from combat to helping others- and himself- to process and deal with stress. In this rich conversation, Yotam and Carol discuss everything from surviving the realities of participating in war to coping mechanisms anyone can use to deal with everyday anxiety and stress from major trauma. Plus, Yotam reveals his connection to the hit show “Fauda” and a surprising take on it. 

Plus, a “Now You Know” on the originals of the word “mentor”.

I saw this morning that a friend (it was @davecarter if you must know) posted a meme on Facebook that mentioned plastic container lids not fitting. I have honestly been free of this demon for so long that I forgot it’s still a thing for some people. A drawer full of containers and lids of […]

When I realized it was my turn for the November Group Writing Series and the theme was elimination, I started to fret a little. Elimination is a challenging word, turning it over and over in my mind. It became complicated – talk about the all consuming Mid-terms? The Caravan? Did the Founders stress out this […]

There are many things that form the mountains in our lives; grief, worry, fear, desolation, disease, pain and anger are just a few of these things. Sometimes we stand at the base of the mountain before us and feel the anguish of defeat, because the mountain stands in the way of our purpose. Some would […]

From childhood throughout life, we are indoctrinated to believe that giving up shows we are weak and cowardly. We are encouraged to keep trying, even when we know failure is imminent. Parents encourage us from the time we learn to walk all the way through to adulthood; don’t give up. School teachers and coaches drive […]

Remember when President Trump said that the job of President is harder than he thought it would be? I think there are signs that he’s learning the depth of that truth and may not be managing the stress of the job very well. The latest signs showed up in a comment he made yesterday where […]

Quote of the Day: Stress

 

I have been under an increasing amount of stress and pressure at work for the past six months. I’ve never dealt with stress very well and this time has been no different. It’s not helped by the wonky blood sugar issues I’ve been experiencing or the latest round of flu that I feel coming on thanks to co-workers who couldn’t be bothered to stay away from the office when sick.

I’ve learned over the past week, however, that I need to realign my perspective of my ever-growing to-do list and the constant interruptions I get while working in the office. I need to change how I react to it. I’m normally very good at my reactions to bad stuff, but work-related stress is something I’ve never tackled before.

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 […]

English is a naturally stressed language. Some words and syllables are more important than others and receive stress. Others are less important and are not stressed. When it comes to meter and metrical forms, English most naturally trends towards the forms that are accentual, meaning measuring by stresses. In Anglo-Saxon, sometimes called Old English, the […]
