Clues From My Coffee Table

Putting things into perspective entails having an open mind, meticulouly fact-checking investigative reports, theories and historical accounts. The world is in turmoil, religiously, politically and climatologically. Some folks dreaded the truncated Mayan calendar. Others look to the prophecies of Nostradamus for enlightenment. Well, I launched a search for answers all my own. I recently watched the Obama 2016 DVD. I've read a few compelling books (pictured on my coffee table) and I am currently reading Barack Obama's autobiography. I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I am getting to a point of understanding about who our president is and who is he is not, and why Americans of all creeds and colours have incorrectly projected their own interpretations onto him.

First and foremost, as you could tell by the tracks of his tears on Friday when he spoke of the massacred CT children, he is human, with a big heart. But if you could sit inside his head at the control panel for a few hours and see the world as he sees it, you would understand his anti-Colonialistic leaning, as depicted in the 2016 book and DVD. I'm not suggesting he is "bad" or anything like that. I am suggesting that due to his life experiences and the strong influence exerted by his father (channeled thru his mother), he doesn't think the way you think he thinks. The book and DVD offer a lot of insight into this, including a bit of analysis and explanation of why it may be so. It certainly provides an interesting explanation of the President's behaviour on certain matters.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
