It doesn’t take much to start an online argument:
I think arguments are a waste of time, since those convinced against their will; remain unconvinced still.
But if you must argue online, here is a way to win any online arguments and not just political arguments.
Why not share your opinions with all of us by commenting. I think many of us could learn from different perspectives.

The Foundation for Being Extraordinary
I know there is a philosophy out there that thinks everything should be easy. I wouldn’t recommend adopting that philosophy; most things of value take hard work and things that come to easily are usually assigned little value.
Getting Along with Others
Learn to say “no” if you have doubts about doing something–you will make things easier on yourself and the requester. Not replying is not a “no”, it is simply disrespectful.
Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
Going on a media diet may bring you more peace without the non-stop stream of media divisiveness.
The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary
Love is a choice, sometimes a very difficult choice; please put some thought into you choice.
The Wind Is My Mother
by Bear Heart
There is a lot to learn from Bear Heart, a Muskogee Creek Indian medicine man.
For instance his observation: By nature bears are very playful, even when they are hunting or fishing. When they fish, they’re not fishing to make a living, they fish in order to live and, in so doing, make a game out of it for enjoyment. This is something humans can learn from.
I hope you are having some fun at work and enjoying the people you come into contact with; life is short, enjoy it as much as you can.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
The screenplay delves into different aspects of love as shown through ten separate stories involving a variety of people, many of whom are shown to be interlinked as their stories progress.
The story begins five weeks before Christmas and is played out in a weekly countdown until the holiday, followed by an epilogue that takes place one month later. (Source: Wikipedia)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
This is unusual Christmas song, but I believe the Ramones had their heart in the right place when they made this song. There is way too much disharmony in the world and in the USA.
Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)

ART OF THE WEEK
by Grant Wood
American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood’s inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and his decision to paint the house along with “the kind of people [he] fancied should live in that house.”
Painted in 1930, it depicts a farmer standing beside a woman who has been interpreted to be either his wife or his daughter.
It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art, and has been widely parodied in American popular culture. [Source: Wikipedia]
Did someone say, “Widely parodied”
I think mother-in-laws get a bad rap; most of them are absolutely wonderful people. I liked my mother-in-law so much that I gave her a trophy that said “World’s Best Mother-in-Law”
I’m so glad I did, because the following December she died. We already had a gravesite for her and Carol bought the marker for her mother’s grave and this year we decorated the grave.
If you had a wonderful mother-in-law like I did, I would urge you to do something for her this Christmas.
