On his radio show today, Dennis Prager says he can’t think of any circumstance where he’d be governed by his emotions.
If Dennis Prager says it, it must be true! I wanna be like Dennis Prager. He’s my hero.
Crissy posts: “As opposed to being governed by what? Oh and how realistic is it not to ever be governed by emotions?”
I’m a very strong man Crissy. I am governed by my values, my discipline, my mind, my fears, grrrr… I’m in psycho-therapy, hope to sort this out… i am often governed by my feelings and not realizing it.
Crissy says: “I don’t doubt you are strong Luke Ford. I just think that all your effort to go against what is totally natural (in this case) is unattainable. I also think it would be kinda boring to hang with someone who is not free with their emotions.”
I’m pretty free with my emotions when I am with friends, but I don’t allow myself to be governed by them… I hope… Otherwise, I’d be a rapist and you wouldn’t want that, would you?
Leah Kleim says: “If your feelings dont govern you…you are cold and empty.”
Eliyahu points out this CBS news report from today:
“What motivates me is the opportunity to safeguard the rule of law,” Kagan said under questioning by a visibly frustrated Sen. Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, who asked her about her passions. “I think I will take this one case at a time if I’m a judge. It would not be right for a judge to come in and say, ‘I have a passion for this or that. …’ This isn’t a job, I think, where somebody should come in with a substantive agenda.”
