Smartphones And Safe Spaces

Just a thought… is Smartphone addiction a contributing factor in the “Safe Space” mentality of college students? It seems more believable than Obama linking Terrorism and Global Warming.

Smartphone Addiction Making People Dumb And Dumber:

If you’re like many people, your smartphone is at your side day and night. You use it to wake you up in the morning; to call, email, text, or Instagram people all day long; to guide you to an unfamiliar location; to lull you to sleep at night with nature sounds.

Is that a problem? Are you becoming too dependent on, or even addicted to, your smartphone?

Quite possibly, several studies say, though theories abound on how best to cure the problem.

“Cellphones are so multifunctional, and every week we’re coming up with more and more uses,” said James Roberts, professor of marketing at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. “Of course, they’re highly portable; they’re always with us, in our pockets. All that positions cellphones to be highly addictive.”

Roberts and colleagues recently published a study on the topic in the Journal of Behavioral Addictions. According to their study, college students spend more than eight hours a day on average using their cellphones. Roberts said this habit has dramatically changed the behavior of students and how they communicate and relate to each other.

“Ten years ago, I would walk into a classroom and kids would be bubbling — just talking and laughing. Now, I walk in and it’s like a morgue,” he said. “Everyone is their own separate entity, doing their own thing on the cellphones. They’re together, but alone.”

 

Paul Harvey – Policeman

Paul Harvey - PolicemanPaul Harvey was probably the best story teller to ever grace this earth. When Harvey spoke, you were drawn in, he compelled you to listen, held you till the very end and left wanting more. His tribute to the many police officers who risk their lives daily is one of his best.

God bless the men and women in blue.

 

A policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.

What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual, they are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact: and the fact is, less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. And that is a better average than you would find among clergymen!

What is a policeman? He, of all men, is at once the most needed and the most wanted. A strangely nameless creature who is “sir” to his face and “pig” or worse to his back.

He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.

But…If the policeman is neat, he is conceited; If he’s careless, he’s a bum. If he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt; If he’s not, he’s a grouch.

He must make instant decisions which would require months for a lawyer.

But…if he hurries, he’s careless; If he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with a diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt. He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being “brutal.” If you hit him…he’s a coward. If he hits you…he’s a bully.

The policeman, from a single human hair, must be able to describe the crime, the weapon, the criminal and tell you where the criminal is hiding. But…if he catches the criminal, he’s lucky; if he doesn’t, he is a dunce.

He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache, to build a case against some felon who will get “dealed out” by a shameless shamus.

The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.

And of course, he’ll have to be a genius…for he will have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.

Operation Secret Santa

Unique traffic stops in Kansas City, Missouri bring drivers to tears.

We need more news like this.

Enjoy and share!

Earlier this month, in Kansas City, Missouri, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department was out looking for people. And when they spotted a subject, they went after them, in a sting operation the likes of which this country has never seen.

What made this operation especially unusual was the man behind it: a fellow in a red hat — known to these men only as “Secret Santa.”

Every year this anonymous, wealthy businessman gives out about a hundred thousand dollars worth of hundred dollar bills to random strangers. But this year, instead of doing it all himself, he deputized these deputies to give away much of it.
“Let’s start with a thousand,” Secret Santa said as he gave the deputies the money.

And so, armed to the teeth with Benjamins, the officers went out to do Santa’s bidding. They specifically went after people they thought would appreciate it most. Cars driving while dented — or out on Bondo — were likely targets.

“Merry Christmas,” a deputy said while handing money to a driver.

“You’re kidding. Oh my God, no,” answered the driver in disbelief.

Most people weren’t just blown away — most people were moved to tears. Their reactions were a combination of really needing the money and being caught off guard.

We saw Jessica Rodriguez, a mother of three, get pulled over. While the deputy walked to her car, Rodriguez talked to someone on her cell phone to tell them she’d been pulled over for “no cause.”

“How you doing, m’am?” the deputy asked her.

“I’m good until you pulled me over,” she answered.

“Okay, well, on behalf of Secret Santa, he wants you to have this, OK?” the deputy said as he handed her money.

Rodriguez told the deputy he saved her Christmas.
“I wasn’t going to be able to get my kids anything,” she told him.

“Well, I hope you may be able to get your kids something with it,” he said.

As always, creating moments like that is the main mission here. But this year “Secret Santa” also had a secret agenda.

“What do you want the officers to get out of this?” I asked him.

“Joy,” he answered. “You know, as tough as they are they have hearts that are bigger than the world.”

Let’s face it, it hasn’t been a good year for law enforcement — but for the vast majority of decent officers who will never make headlines — Secret Santa offered this gift.

A chance to be bearer of good news for a change, a chance to really help the homeless, to thank the law-abiders, to see hands up in celebration and then be assaulted in the best possible way.

There were a lot of hugs. Our body cameras took a real beating, but it was worth it — just to see people trust again and to see cops surrender.

Johnathan Gentry Responds To Ferguson Violence

This man speaks the truth!

Johnathan Gentry responds to the violence in Ferguson in an interview with Fox’s Neil Cavuto.

Outstanding!

Minister Johnathan Gentry is noted for his original comments on Ferguson that went viral back in August. And he’s back, this time on Cavuto with a strong message of repudiation about what’s going on in Ferguson.

He takes issue directly with the likes of Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and other activists who are blaming police departments instead of themselves, arguing that black males being killed by other blacks are the real problem. He said they need to look in the mirror and change themselves before they can effectively change communities.

When asked about Sharpton saying he’s acting on the Word of God, Gentry hits back hard, saying that God is love and that what Al Sharpton is doing is taking the hate from when he grew up and fueling that hate into an innocent generation. Gentry said for Al Sharpton to say he’s acting on the Word of God is a lie!

‪‎Ferguson‬ Gang Member Admits Eric Holder Paid Us To Riot

Eric Holder Paid Us To Riot
This has to be a parody. Can you imagine if it were true? With this administration… anything is possible!

From National Report:

Eric Holder’s career has survived a long list of scandals; The 2008 Black Panther debacle, overturning Arizona’s immigration laws and ‘Fast and Furious‘ immediately spring to mind. These, however, pale in comparison to the recent allegations against Holder, the likes of which could easily land the Attorney General behind bars.

Evidence has been uncovered showing Eric Holder contributed funds to Ferguson’s gang population as incentive to loot and spread civil unrest in the area. These angry, government-sponsored terrorists have systematically infiltrated peaceful protests with the intention of escalating the situation and inciting riots.

A local gang leader came forward last week after being arrested during a night of mass-looting. The unnamed criminal is using his information to bargain for a reduced sentence.

Allegedly, Holder’s goal behind pouring proverbial gasoline on an already volatile situation is to test militarized police response in a martial law scenario. It is also suspected that the riots have been started as the latest in diversions from the diabolical duo of Obama and Holder. This isn’t the first time they have created a media bait-and-switch to cover up any of their numerous crimes and blunders.

Officials have yet to publicly identify the damaging evidence submitted to them, and are still in the process of verifying the legitimacy of said items. Judge Rineheart of St. Louis is presiding over the case and has reviewed the materials. During a phone interview with National Report Judge Rineheart stated “The evidence I have seen is incredibly convincing.”

Holder is not yet officially charged with a crime, but it’s expected that a warrant could be issued for him within the coming days. Obama’s spokespeople have declined to comment.
