Communication Overload

By Randy Mitchell, published on Dec 4, 2012

So there I was, sitting comfortably inside a church pew listening to one of Dallas’ most popular preachers spreading his message, when curiously, I decided to gaze around and take note of others cell phone usage. What I saw was the inspiration of this week’s topic.

The Preacher’s message this week was very timely: How to take a day off; not only taking at least one day off each week from anything work-related, but really taking it off away from cell phones, computers, and anything electronic which could distract from quality time with family, friends, or doing something one regards as... (more)

This Time of Year

By Randy Mitchell, published on Nov 21, 2012

This time of year always brings to light the inner-emotions of every human being. For better or worse, angry or happy, blessed or starving, employed or not, living among the devastation of war or sitting underneath the comfortable blanket of peace, we all have something to be thankful for and look forward to the upcoming days of the holiday season.

It’s been a crazy year for many. The aggressive political election and its results left millions wondering what’s next for our beloved country. The images from overseas, mainly the events happening within the Middle East, makes us ponder what’s... (more)

America, Times Two

By Randy Mitchell, published on Nov 8, 2012

After the recent election, it is very clear to me, we now live in two very different countries within our shores.

I was born in 1962. JFK was President, Johnny Carson had just begun The Tonight Show, The Supreme Court voted to ban school prayer, the median fixed income was $6,000, a house costs $15,000, and a gallon of gas was a meager $.25 cents. But, things were much different back then because people were much different. There was greater unity throughout the land as I grew up, and the American dream was alive and well to all who were willing to work and succeed. America had its problems,... (more)

Returning To Greatness

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 24, 2012

Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Astor, Ford and Morgan; the dominant names of those who built this nation during its infancy. Men, who had vision, drive, guts, determination, goals, and minds which captured the very essence of Capitalism. Men, who constructed entire industries out of their genius, powered and built America’s infrastructure, and made it into the wealthiest country in history. Men, who started from nothing, and became the richest on the planet without government help, or intervention; the creators, the ones who started it all, the leader’s who made our country the envy of... (more)

Ring Your Own Telephone

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 18, 2012

The Economy. Money. Jobs. Your Future, and the future of our youth. It’s filling the minds of everyone these days especially during this super-heated political election. People are more concerned than ever about what their future holds, and rightly so. Millions are looking for work, or have stopped searching at all with little hope. It isn’t the America I grew up in, and one in desperate need of a new direction.

America was founded on self-reliant, entrepreneurial principles. A nation where people are free to dictate their own future, create their own jobs, and look out for themselves,... (more)

Arrogance at its Finest

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 13, 2012

The ultimate in political game playing was on display Thursday night as VP Joe Biden, and Rep. Paul Ryan squared off in their first and only Vice Presidential Debate.

Right from the start, it was clear Biden came for, and was looking to start a boxing match, a chance to mug for the cameras and make up some much-needed ground his boss lost from days prior. Well, he probably guzzled down a couple of Red Bulls before clearly making an ass out of himself building on his momentum as being one of the most disrespected, and laughed at politicians of our era. I guarantee Obama was gripping his... (more)

Respect In Your Life

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 8, 2012

Do you show respect to others in your life? Do they show the same to you? What do you regard as respectful behavior? Is it merely doing as one says when they say they'll do it, or does it dive much deeper than that, demonstrating by not only backing up what one says, as much as one does? According to Wikipedia, the definition of respect is: "Respect gives a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual... (more)

What's Wrong With Being Rich?

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 1, 2012

I was recently talking with one of our nation’s youth (19 years old) when the subject of politics came up, that dreaded word which has sparked many heated debates, especially lately. We were about ten seconds into the conversation when he quickly said, “I don’t like that Romney guy.”

I said, “Really, why not?”

“Because he’s rich.”

Taken back a little, I then asked, “What’s wrong with being rich? Wouldn’t you like to be rich someday?”

Thinking, “Well…ya’ll.”

“Then, why don’t you like Mitt Romney?”

“Because he was given his money, his daddy started him... (more)

That Voice Inside

By Randy Mitchell, published on Sep 25, 2012

When you were born, God equipped you with a conscious, a gut-wrencher, an energy feeling coming across when impending forces try causing you harm or propelling you toward greater good, a realistic sensation responding to all things emotional, a subtle voice. That voice is God trying to tell you something, for better or worse, even when you don’t want to listen.

God knows what’s best for us. He oversees and plans everything we do way before any situation or person comes across our thoughts. He sees the forks-in-the-roads, the urges, the desires, the wants, and the mistakes we’ll all make... (more)

The Humble Moon Walker

By Randy Mitchell, published on Sep 16, 2012

On a summer evening in July of 1969, Neil Armstrong placed his left, then his right foot on the surface of the moon humbly saying, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Words which will forever be etched in history books and minds of all who heard them across the airwaves. Armstrong was our generations, Christopher Columbus, a true hero, and a man who surprisingly retired and walked into anonymity only two years after his historic flight. He often said in interviews that none of what he did “was about him, that he was only the tip of the arrow”, referencing the 400,000... (more)
