‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Presents His Amazing New Rule to Avoid Raging on Social Media

Published

on

Our country is experiencing the deepest divide both culturally and politically, that it’s seen in decades and much of the hate, anger, and violence — both verbal and physical — is the result of flared tempers fueled by social media.

Social media enables every single person to have a voice and to express their opinions, thoughts, and ideas on every subject known to man anonymously, which seems to encourage folks to be harsh, mean, and just plain nasty.

Social media is difficult terrain to navigate, especially for Christians who are commanded by God to love their neighbor. How can this be done in the digital social networking era?

“Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson, who joined Strong on a panel discussion, added that she has seen some of her positive social media posts quickly take negative turns.

“[I’m] trying to put something out good on social media and then people will find anything they can to criticize,” she said, before going on to share a rule her husband Jase Robertson lives by.

“Jase has a rule … he said, ‘If you write something out on social media, do not push send for 30 seconds,’” Robertson explained. “It’s the 30-second rule. Read over it, read over it again, read over it again.”

Taking time to review and assess material before tweeting or Facebooking it — especially messages composed out of anger or frustration — often helps people make more informed, rational decisions.

Strong shared that she also has her own rule: Facebook-free Fridays. She essentially stays off all social media and out of the news cycle every Friday. While it’s difficult for the journalist to “unplug,” she said her avoidance of social media for one day a week has helped refresh her heart and mind, while giving her more time to spend with her family.

This idea seems to flow directly from the book of James in the Bible. James, the half brother of Jesus, states that we should be slow to speak, quick to hear, in order to avoid angry outbursts that lead to the destruction of our soul and the souls of others, thus violating the sixth commandment.

This means we need to take time out before we speak, not reacting right away to something someone else does or says, giving ourselves time to biblically reflect on the proper response. If folks abided by this nugget of wisdom, there would be less anger, vitriol, and hurtful words spoken on social media.

Let’s hope this principle seeps into the pores of folks online everywhere.

CNN Anchor Goes on Insulting Rant Against the Unvaccinated

Oh, spare us the drama, Chris.

Published

When it comes to the heated and prolonged debate that this nation has been having on the subject of vaccines, it is just about impossible to say something that won’t offend somebody. This is the Coke versus Pepsi of the 2020’s; the Yankees/Red Sox of medicine.  There is no grey area, and there is no middle ground. And, if you had any doubt about what side of the argument CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were on, you needn’t worry any longer. Anchor Don Lemon said, “I still am flummoxed by the misinformation over the vaccine, people refusing to get vaccinated and also refusing to wear masks. Every day seems like it gets worse. And I don’t mean that. I mean the people who are dying, who are actually coming down with it, especially the children… I mean, just heartbreaking.” And then came the insults… Cuomo said, “People seen with significant cases and hospitalizations are getting younger. Part of the metric here is ignorance, but part of it is also arrogance, this misplaced sense of righteous indignation, and resistance that they believe is a false manifestation of freedom. This is not an issue of freedom. Of course, you have freedom to make choices about your own body. Let’s put to the side the irony that so many of these people don’t want to afford that freedom to women. But what we’re saying is, does it mean it’s the right choice? And these suggestions, I think the vaccine is safe, but you have the freedom to take it, but I don’t know that the science lines up, but I don’t know why they’re changing the guidance. These suggestions feel resistance. I think it’s a mistake.” Vaccine hesitancy is believed to account for a majority of the unvaccinated population in America today.

Longrunning Music Festival to Require Vaccines and COVID Tests This Summer

The entire American social order could be shuffled as these sorts of mandates spread.

Published

Whether or not the medical experts or the liberal left are ready to admit it, the fact of the matter is this:  Only about half of this nation is going to willingly receive a COVID-19 vaccination at this time. They have their reasons for abstaining.  Some are simply waiting for the FDA to fully authorize the inoculation, as opposed to releasing it with “emergency use authorization”, as is the case currently. Others are very cognizant of their bodily sovereignty, and they believe that refusing to partake at this time helps to keep a potentially overzealous government from getting any ideas. And, of course, there are those whose ideas are a little wilder, who tell tales of implanted microchips and the mark of the beast. Seeing as the government hasn’t yet had the stomach for mandating the vaccines themselves, there are a number of private companies who are taking matters into their own hands.  This includes one of the most popular music festivals in the United States. The hordes of people expected to descend on Chicago’s Grant Park for the Lollapalooza music festival this week will be required to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or tested negative for the disease within the last three days. The four-day festival starts Thursday and is expected to be back at full capacity, with roughly 100,000 daily attendees. After missing last summer because of the threat of the coronavirus, it will easily be Chicago’s largest gathering since the pandemic started, and one of the country’s. The setup will be strict. This year’s festival will look very different than in the past. To gain entry, attendees will have to present their vaccination cards or a printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than 72 hours old. That means that anyone with a…
