Political Correctness and Pokemon Go!

Sedona AZ (August 2, 2016) – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:


veteran cemetery This afternoon on TV, I caught a clip about a military veteran in his mid to late sixties. The vet had gone into a cemetery’s military section and there he found a bunch of “Pokemon Players” with at least one tent set-up among and partly over the headstones. The veteran said something about it, from what I could get out of the video someone shot from their phone (I guess). The “Pokewhatever Players” started mocking the veteran and his response was to tear down their tent.

He got into a fight with a couple of them and they called the cops. The veteran was arrested for infractions, including Property Damage and, I think, Disorderly Conduct. I did not hear of any of the “Pokewhatever Players” getting charged with anything.

This was on Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Show and Bill was saying that the man had “…no right to take the law into his own hands like that” and immediately I started comparing the vet’s actions to the Mob Mentality of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and Black Lives Matter (BLM), et al.

The veteran will undoubtedly have to pay for his transgression of the Law including court costs, the willful destruction of the tent, and the assault and battery. Thus, the veteran’s trying to get people to not desecrate the cemetery is costly to him because “he took the law into his own hands.” The OWS & BLM Mobs can stage illegal and violent demonstrations – which end up being paid for by either taxpayer money or the property owners who likely “eat” those costs – all under the guise of the First Amendment Right to Assemble.

Before you start criticizing my reference to “Illegal Violent Demonstrations”, the First Amendment does not give ANYBODY the “Right” to destroy anything Public or Private. It gives people the “…absolute Right to assemble PEACEABLY.” There is no viable excuse for not arresting a whole crowd at the first sign of violence and or property damage. This B.S. of placating violators of the law(s) only leads to disrespect and/or contempt for the Law, the Lawmakers, and the Lawmaking entity.

One of the most damaging situations in the overall health and well-being of any entity is disrespect and/or contempt from within the purview (jurisdictional range) of that entity; and, unfortunately, that is what we are looking at today in the entity called the government of the United States of America.

It is not too late. It can be turned around. However, reversing a TREND is always more difficult than maintaining the status quo and it takes solid and consistent leadership. It is often difficult to dispense understanding, especially when higher education facilities and mainstream News Media outlets are stacked against change. Add to that an apathetic (unconcerned and indifferent) and cavalier (careless and arrogant) attitude of a significant portion of the voting public, the leader in that entity’s Leadership role becomes so crucial.

We are faced with a choice and there is no perfect candidate. The old wise saying “You can learn about a man (male or female) by his friends” is fair but incomplete. I believe you can learn more by his (male or female) enemies. With the choices we are faced with in the 2016 Presidential Election, one of the choices and her spouse have on multiple occasions “Lied to Congress, lied in Courts, lied to the American public, and, in at least one case, to the families of American victims murdered overseas” – probably due to neglect and apathy on the part of that individual’s actions, or lack of action.

The other choice has made some stupid remarks and has been vilified and falsely accused from both sides of the aisle, and for a lot that was actually right on target. I believe his Heart, Intent, Patriotism and Attitude are in the right place, and, when I look at what I know about the lists of his Friends, Enemies and Family, the choice for me is easy. I fully intend to help Donald J. Trump in his endeavor to “Make America Great Again” with whatever means I have.
