Happy New Year - 2013

To all of you who take the time to read The Critical Thinker, I say Happy New Year to you and thank you. I realize that you do not have to take the time to read The Critical Thinker and for that I am truly grateful. I look forward to providing more thought provoking posts in 2013 because I truly believe that we as Americans are always being intentionally misinformed. The objective of The Critical Thinker is to cause the reader to pause and think about what is being shared with us via the media, advertisements, events, etc.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best when he said "Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think." The purpose of The Critical Thinker is to provoke you the reader to willingly engage in some hard, solid thinking. You don't have to agree with my view, but at least give the subject at hand some additional thought compared with just glossing by it and taking everything that is fed to us as the truth.

With that in mind I have also launched The Critical Thinker Podcast and it can be visited at www.thecriticalthinker.podbean.com  The podcast allows me to speak about the various topics, many written here in the blog and some that are not. So I encourage you to subscribe to The Critical Thinker Podcast in ITunes to be challenged to think even more. The latest edition of the podcast can be found at http://thecriticalthinker.podbean.com/2012/12/31/happy-new-year-happy-2013/.

I look forward to your feedback in the comment section and by clicking on the red "feedback" tab  located at the right side of your screen. You can also follow me on Twitter @thinkcritical01.  May your 2013 be blessed and prosperous.
