When people say Christmas is a "state of mind" this is what they mean. It's that easy-going, love-thy-neighbor, tip-more-generously, forgive-a-little-deeper, smile-for-no-reason, kind of season. That's what the spirit of Christmas is and what goes along with it is music. It's the magical combo: Christmas music + Traffic = Tolerable.

By increasing our understanding of our identity, we can increase our Mojo. We can learn how to get Mojo, how to keep it, and how we get it back if we lose it. We can let go of what does not create happiness and meaning in our lives, and strive for what really matters to us -- we can live a life full of Mojo, meaning, and purpose!

Tolerance is the word we now use to say, "you have to agree with my views." However, as one sees with teenagers, tolerance in truth means to disagree, but to respect. And in its highest, most beautiful incarnation, to disagree and yet love.

Elections are moving targets. Nonetheless, absent dramatic irregularities in the election context, polls focused on high visibility races are usually robust predictive tools. Obviously, this was not the case in this year's midterm elections.

Illiberal Liberalism

We often boast of the uniqueness of our system. We are not a totalitarian society that crushes the individual out of existence and tramples over his/her rights and freedoms. But there are questions we need to ask ourselves.

I know it is not an easy decision to cancel such a major event that impacts so many people, including myself. I am sure that all Nobel Peace Laureates scheduled to attend this summit would have loved to celebrate their achievements next week in South Africa.

Firstly, let me state that I'm TERRIFIED of Bees and Wasps. Whilst I recognize that this fear (phobia?) of mine is, to some degree, irrational, I've lived with it for forty odd years and gotten used to it. It is what it is, you know?

How should a teacher react if a student arrives to class wearing a t-shirt that shouts a repugnant racial slur in large, all capital letters across the chest? The answer ought to be clear.

An American Talks Turkey About the 'Intolerant' Chicken

Here in America, we have a knack for twisting around the meaning of a word and molding it into something we can get a bit more use out of. Americans are good at capitalizing on opportunities. In fact, we founded our country on that exact ideology.

The Difference Between Tolerance and Acceptance

Often, I see the words "acceptance" and "tolerance" being used interchangeably. The LGBT community often talks of building a tolerant society, but it is by no means enough.

Despite the perpetual obstacles that Pakistan encounters, the citizens of the nation find a way to stand back up. Only if tolerance is practiced by the public, and education becomes common, will the public be able to make Pakistan prosper and make it rank amongst the list of successful states of the world.

I was walking down Broadway off of Houston Street and stopped into one of those deli grocery marts for a bottle of water. It was a tiny store, with two small aisles; every square inch utilized to the brim. It sold everything from breakfast sandwiches and bagels, to souvenir lighters and key chains.

Making love our priority doesn't mean we're always in spaced out hippie bliss while ignoring the conflicts around us, but it does mean we have shifted our focus. Love is the main emotional job of the heart and it rarely flows smoothly.

LGBT Elites Need to KISS

Brian Stone

I'll be called out as a hetero-normative cisgender supporter of the patriarchy for saying this, but it would be nice if we could use English to talk about our issues.

Mocking Christians for living in the past doesn't just alienate Christians; it alienates moderates, independents and future millennial voters. Trying to defame and decry social liberalism backfired for conservatives, so what's to stop the same tactics from backfiring on us?
