HWYSD: Read Bills Before You Discuss Them

Here, have a bonus post for today.  The news got me all riled up, earlier.

Seriously, how many of us get swept up in the controversy concocted by media? They play us like violins, folks.

It would serve us all well to remember that almost nobody we hear talking, writing, posting, or ranting about an issue has actually read up on it.  Instead of doing a few seconds of actual research on it, we read posts, and see how people feel about the issue, instead of looking at what it actually is.

I'm guilty of it, too.

Here's What We Should Do:

Read an actual state bill, especially if we think we just have to rant one way or another about it.

Here, I'll even give you the link to Arizona Bill SB 1062, which is the thing to rant about, this week.

Hey, here's an idea: share the link with a news station (or anyone else) that probably hasn't looked at it.
