Creating More Conservative States


There has been a lot of talk about red and blue states. Some seem to think that because more people are moving to conservative states from blue states that it will change the demographics and create more conservative votes.

Not going to happen, when people move to conservative states because where they’re moving from has become unlivable due to crime,high taxes and loss of business and employment because of excessive regulation, they bring their values with them.

Most never stop to realize what has created the environment from whence they came. They go on believing liberalism is the wave of the future and it has nothing to do with the current state of affairs of the state or city they left. They blame it on a politician, instead of of certain idea or policy.

Thus they begin polluting the area they move to with their values that never work and before long their new local becomes as undesirable as where they came from. They seem to never learn.

A new trend has developed to try and combat this. Most socialists live in the urban areas, leaving the rural areas for one w with a more conservative bent.

As a result several states have tried to secede from the union. This probably isn’t going to work for a number of reasons.

Now a new strategy has emerged, this is for localities such as counties to secede or attempt to join a neighboring state. There seems to be nothing illegal about this.This would be a way for people who have the same values to join together and to best suit the needs of each other, and would indeed create larger conservative states with more political influence. People who remain close to the earth have a greater understanding of nature and self-reliance than those living in urban areas.

Let the socialist wallow in their own lack of understanding about how life works,let them pay for their grandiose schemes to better humanity. Let them figure out their schemes don’t work without penalizing the rest of us. The socialists are studying life on Schoolhouse Earth and aren’t learning. Why should the rest of us continue to pay for their education when they aren’t learning anything?

Sooner or later they will realize that you can’t just keep throwing money at problems and giving people a free ride, sooner or later they will realize that each and every individual is responsible for their own destiny, no one can live their life for them. There are no free rides. No one can fix their lives, they must do it themselves, to do anything else is a huge waste of time , money, and resources.

Getting People off Welfare


Today, because of the present economic conditions many are on welfare and collecting food stamps. Without a doubt many need public assistance, either due to mental or physical handicaps or job layoffs or other temporary unforeseen circumstances.

 

Since  the current political situation in this country the economic conditions aren’t likely to improve for a while, more and more employment  opportunities are being taken away because of government policies concerning health care and other policies.

 

These are the instances that public assistance is designed for and should continue, having said that, many are on public assistance that have no need for it  or don’t deserve it .It has become a way of life for many,sometimes for generations. It is not uncommon for someone to  make more money on welfare than working a job.

 

Many people went through twelve years of public schooling and never even learned how to write, many dropped out, and thus have no marketable skills. The are doomed to a life of flipping hamburgers.

There is a way out for everyone caught in this dilemma.

It won’t be easy, but it is the only way, and in the long run, it will free you from the bonds of poverty.

For some easy answers, read my short Ebook.

the Lack of Discipline in Society


The Lack of Discipline in Society

Last month in Florida, a school bus driver witnesses a vicious assault on a 13-year-old boy. He radioed the bus dispatcher and frantically begged for assistance, as he feared the victim was being seriously injured. But he did not intervene.

The driver, an elderly gentleman  expressed dismay that he didn’t help the youngster being attacked. His main reasoning was it was against school policy for him to intervene.

He was also elderly so that may have played into the decision also.  Despite his age , if he would have intervened, he probably would have been punished by the school.

Regretfully, in today’s society, there are so many restrictions in place, especially when a minority is involved , it is extremely dangerous for someone to get involved and help a person in need.

Gone are the days when discipline played a role in raising our children. Far too often , kids are allowed to do whatever they want with no threat of discipline. Many roam the streets creating havoc.They know they have rights and they  act like they can do whatever they please with no fear of consequence, there will always be someone to feel sorry for them and bail them out of whatever trouble they manage to get into.

Regretfully , they are correct, in many cases there is no father at home, and the mother is either working or off doing her own thing.

Gone are the days when parents sided with teachers and the child was always wrong until proven otherwise, gone are the days when kids didn’t tell their parents if they got in trouble at school, for fear of punishment worse than death when they got home.

Gone are the days when most kids had enough respect for their elders so as to not cause them embarrassment by getting into trouble. In those days it brought embarrassment on the whole family when a kid got into trouble, that was enough of a deterrent to keep many kids on the straight and narrow.

Gone are the days when teachers, facility, and others such as bus drivers could actually discipline wrong doers and maintain a safe environment for others.

Gone are the days when good old common sense prevailed, and people thought more about their responsibilities than their rights.

And we wonder what is wrong with society.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

Making the Right Decision


Life changing events

By:Gary Wonning


Often times we need to take heed to what the universe is telling us when deciding what path to take in our life.


The messages can be subtle and easily missed if one isn’t paying attention. The frustrating part can be that many  times our direction is revealed to us slowly often one day or week at a time.


When we realize that change is in the air, this can be quite irritating as we  want an answer and we want it now. It seems that the current era we are experiencing, change has become the word of the day and life is continuously changing, more than usual.


As  most people , my life has been going through a metamorphosis and I haven’t always known which direction to turn. Recently my wife and I joined a new church and decided to undergo training to become prayer chaplains.


From the beginning I often wondered what I was doing there,  I didn’t think I was very good at praying,my political views were extremely different than most in the congregation,  and I often hesitated to offer up a prayer. Graduation day came and I was still undecided if I really wanted to go on.


We were given prayer stoles, but neither my wife and I wore ours as we were undecided how much we wanted to commit. The moment of decision had arrived, I decided before church on Sunday and unless something changed my mind, I wasn’t going to do it.


Church ended and we were headed for the fellowship hall for a snack. I had decided to find the head chaplain and tell her I was dropping out.


As I left the chapel, I felt a tug on my elbow. Turning around there was a man standing behind me and he asked if I would give him a prayer. Not to disappoint him, I agreed. What followed was amazing, not only did he enjoy the prayer, but he said I hit it right on the mark and  it made him feel a lot better.

 


Talking with him , I found we had a lot in common. We were both Hoosiers, he had gone to school and graduated from the same high school my cousins had in Indianapolis. He graduated the same year I did and we knew a lot of the same locations in Indianapolis.It turned out to be a reunion of sorts.



Needless to say, I changed my mind and decided to proceed as a chaplain.There wasn’t any doubt he was sent to me as a messenger.


Often times we just need a little shove to do what we should be doing.

World War Two Vets Unstoppable


They came in mighty buses instead of tanks ,jeeps and personnel carriers. They only came to honor their fallen comrades and to remember one last time, the heroics from an earlier time, another time when the fate of liberty and freedom hung in the balance.

 


It was a bright sunny day in Washington D.C. , the perfect day to remember and reflect. As the buses approached the World War 2 memorial, they discovered it was closed because of a senseless government shutdown brought on by a spineless congress and clueless president who only have their own  agenda and pocketbook in their best interest.


A memorial that normally is open twenty four hours a day, with no gate, was found to have a barricade around it, a senseless act in itself.  If the government is out of money, where did they find the money to put up the barricade?


U.S. Capitol

 

It didn’t stop these brave men and women who stormed the beaches of such places as Normandy, Omaha Beach, Iwo Jima, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, Guam, the Philippines, and many other historic and important battles,they never gave a thought that maybe their last and possibly most important battle would be fought on the lawn of their nation’s capitol.


Armed with only walkers, wheelchairs, and canes, they weren’t about to let a little fence stop them. These memorials belong to “We the people”, not government bureaucrats. Nothing was going to prevent these noble warriors from their appointed mission.


They came to remember , and certainly deserved more than this from an often thankless nation and arrogant federal government. As they roamed the mall they had to be wondering whatever happened to this once great nation, a nation that once believed in God, a nation founded on moral principles and virtue, where politicians , even though they have always been self centered and thinking mostly of themselves, at least had an ounce of common sense and decency.


They fought the fiercest of battles, they all lost friends , relatives , many came home wounded for life, in the name of freedom and liberty. Millions of people around the world owe  their lives and freedom to these brave men and women.


They came one last time to remember, in the end they, going above and beyond what is expected, fought one last battle for freedom. Who is going to carry on when they, the greatest generation are gone?
