The last few months have been eventful. In a single weekend I got to learn from the great @eddiebravo10p at 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu Bethlehem where one of my students @csdaly, received her blue belt from two amazing 10th Planet Black Belts Zach Maslany and @jm_holland10p and the very next day I competed in a Spartan Elites in Virginia. A few weeks later I got a chance to compete in both a No-Gi Jiu Jitsu tournament and another Spartan Elites in South Carolina. I am thankful for the life I get to live. #staynflux #10thplanetjiujitsu #fittofightrepublic

First race of the year. I have two more and three grappling tournaments to get in before the end of the year. Setting goals really helps with staying focused. #staynflux #spartanrace #spartan #spartansprint #fitness

Billions of dollars and thousands of lives, being “spent” to fight terrorists on foreign lands. There’s always more money for these endeavors, no matter what.

No external force will bring us down. Not Russia. Not NK. Not Iran. Not ISIS. They don’t need to. While we are paying attention to everyone and everything else, we are propagating hate and divisiveness within our own people. We are electing people and supporting groups that thrive and profit from such hate. That will be our undoing.

You want solutions? You want to make a difference? STOP LOOKING FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO FIX THINGS. Start with you. Your family. Your school. Your neighborhood. Your community. If we all take care of our circle, supporting, encouraging, loving, disciplining, expecting, strengthening, talking to, etc., we are going to have less people looking to commit these violent acts, and the ones that do, will stand out. They will show themselves, if we get to know them; if we care enough to engage with our own citizenry.

We have systemic, societal and cultural problems. Throwing on your jersey and running to your corner, throwing out spoon fed talking points, talking over each other, and sharing banal or inaccurate memes, gets us more of the same (or worse.) You don’t have to agree with people that have differing opinions, but you damn sure should listen to them, because what I KNOW is, our current course, sooner or later, will take us all to the same destination, and it’s going to be a brutal journey with a terminal end.

No hashtags. No talking points. No jerseys. No waiting on others. Let’s actually make a difference.

EDIT: Even though it wasn’t germane to the crux of the post, it seems this story was perpetuated by the leader of this group and may not be factual.

The problem with the news media is it takes bullsh*t way too seriously. Comedians don't, and that's become their secret weapon in covering Trump while actually informing people.

Arguing is easy; persuasion is hard: what Donald Trump teaches us about debate.

Some tips on seeing through the magic show that is a bad but persuasive argument. Though Trump is the focus of this article I ask that we use this information when listening to all of our leaders so that we can better understand what they are actually saying to us.
