Foreshadow of America's troubles...

I found this on my FB page. Supposedly Paul Harvey started writing it in 1965 and a lot of it applies today. I'm not posting this to promote any religion whatsoever but I thought some of you MM ers that are motivated hard working individuals who take care of you biz would enjoy it.

Background: When I was about 4 and my little bro was 2, my dad had a job farming for a guy named dewayne. My mom worked and since my parents couldn't afford daycare my brother and I "got" to go farming with my dad. He'd run a John Deere and had two bean bags stuffed beside his seat. My brother and I would ride on either side as my dad drove. He'd let me sit on his lap and steer every once in a while which was awesome when you're young. I remember sleeping in an "L" shape and waking up with sweat and dirt mix on my arm that was against the window. I can smell it if I try. I didn't know who he was at the time but dad had Paul Harvey on the radio, that or an OU game. I thought this was a cool little tidbit for you guys:

Unless Alex Jones has a cool voice, his opinion is void.

Harvey raises valid points. On all counts.

Most, will criticize and ridicule *him* rather than what he asserted in his commentary.

Imagine a thief that breaks into your home. In your living room he digs a hole and plants a tree. There it stands. Bold. Asserting by it's very presence. You arrive at home and find the thief sitting on the couch admiring the tree.

You proceed to insult, ridicule, and bad mouth the thief. You tell him he is ugly, that his mother dresses him funny, and most importantly, that " his voice sounds like a pissed off duck that's smoked for 50 years trying to kickstart a motorcycle built by napoleon".

You stand, to the side proud of your accomplishment. You have thoroughly ridiculed the thief.

What you have failed to realize is that all the while that you were insulting and ridiculing the thief, the tree continued to stand. Untouched. Strong.

That is what happens when we ridicule the person, and allow the persons claims, arguments, and assertions to remain standing.

Everything thing Harvey said, at least on this forum, continues to stand. untouched.

Now, the question then comes: Who will attempt to take an ax to the tree?

( By reasoned argument, NOT by further ridicule)

Was Harvey a douche personally? I don't know much about him.

Think you guys must have skimmed over his post too quickly. BWAL wasn't talking about this dude, he was talking about Alex Jones - and his description of his voice is beyond spot-on.

Also,

Just because someone resorts to ad hominem attacks, it doesn't mean that the argument that was ignored is correct.

And a rotten tree does me no use, so no need to bother with an ax. Some things you're just better off letting be.

Enjoy your rotten tree in your family room. I'm removing it. Rotten trees bring bugs. Sounds like a really good way to get termites.

The only wood in my house you need to be concerned with is not rotten.
