"Beware your thoughts for they become your words.
Beware your words for they become your actions.
Beware your actions for they become your habits.
Beware your habits for they seal your fate.

I've spent the week "behind the wall" of the conservative blogosphere's finest writers. The interest for me has only mildly been in the articles I've read (I'll read some of the more "interesting" ones on today's live show--and in our "after show (Is this a growing trend?) LIVE Google Hangout!

However, it is through the comments that I "learned" the most about  our Republican/Conservative/ultra-conservative/Tea Party brothers and sisters. I'll read some of those, as well.

What is the reality that has created this inextricable schism--not only between factions, but between parties and even families? I've always found the strongest evidence in the words used, and the implied purpose of their selection by the speaker, specifically for the intended audience.

Want to add your opinions, examples, comments, questions, or observations?

Follow me just below the squiggledoodlethingey fold, and get the schmarmy details of our upcoming show next Sunday, November 3, 2013 and prepare your excuses for NOT letting your clocks and other finely crafted time pieces FALL BACK one hour on early Sunday Morning. You REALLY do NOT want to miss our first hour of this show. You'll hate yourself if you do.                

Call our live show at (247) 347-5825 during our live show, which begins Sundays at 2:30 PM (Central Time). We'll respond after you are off-the-air. Find your favorite (or worst) and share it with our audience on the air. If you dare.

Join our live chat room and create or defend your opinions with our lively listeners, guests, and "others". The chat room is always open, and moderated by our co-host and program director "Progressive Patty". Play nice, and come prepared!

Or, some 30 minutes after the live show ends, you can join us in our Live Google Hangout On Air (Gmail required!). This is a new option for our live listener interaction as an additional "Thank You!" for joining our live shows in this second PPTS season.
There's a lot of really exciting news to be shared in this episode. You really do NOT want to miss it LIVE!
We're on the AIR!
We'll see YOU there!
For PPTS, and the entire PPTS team, I remain

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
