I was stunned. I said "Dad...But you lied". And my dad responded "He knows where we live".
My father taught me wisdom.
Not really. In this case your dad did you no favor.
Then Alinsky wins, right?
Wisdom? Your father’s response likely communicated to that “scary man” that he could get his way through intimidation and may very well have emboldened him to commit additional acts of mischief.
It’s a shame your father couldn’t have taught you about courage in the face of evil!!!!
Sounds more like learning chicken. Anyone who does not stand up for themsleves will find that no one else will either.
I am trying to decide if your comment was intended to be taken at face value, i.e. describing an incident of expediency, or is a comment on Rush's fortitude.
At some point in the lives of men, it becomes necessary to face aggression with cold determination. The Founders of our great country knew that the King knew where they lived.
Had they used the concepts of discretion or expediency, then there would be no FreeRepublic where you could freely voice your opinion, or true liberty in your life.
Some live a life of avoidance; some live engaged. There are times when you cannot walk away, and Rush has always demonstrated that he stand for individual libery.
