Being “Brave”

“Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out.
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave.”
– Sara Bareilles

I know, I’m beating a dead horse but hey, it’s like 10 degrees out. I can either go outside and stand there till my bones hurt (about 5 seconds), or reveal to you a correlation I noticed recently. How can we celebrate a song like “Brave” (over 29 weeks on the Billboard charts) then turn around and bash someone who actually carries out the lyrics? Yes, I’m referring to Phil Robertson… or any Christian who just so happens to speak their beliefs which most of the time contradicts anything in mainstream media. I tell ya what, we live in interesting times in the US.

“A free America… means just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call democracy is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright
