We Reap What We Sow!

The headline reads “Boys, 11 and 14, Charged With Sexual Assault on Woman, 60.” That is pretty scary! Here is another one. “Six Las Vegas Teens Shot at Bus Stop After Schoolyard Fight Over Girl.”  How about “Cicero-North Syracuse Student Charged in Exchange of Nude Photos” or “15-Year-Old Boy Pleads Guilty to a Lesser Charge in High School Bomb Plot.” Then there is always these: “Three Female Teens Charged After Video of Them Beating 13-Year-Old Girl Surfaces” and “Illinois High School Student Expelled After Planning Fight on MySpace.” 

I guess you could blame guns … but only one of these crimes involves a gun! 

Why is it that recently the violent-crime rate seems to rise and fall in direct proportion  to the number to teens in the population?  Why has the number of murder arrests of teens suddenly jumped 92% since 1985 … during a period when the teen population has remained steady or even declined.  The perception that criminals are getting younger is backed up by statistics.  In 1982, 390 teens, ages 13 to 15, were arrested for murder.  A decade later, this total jumped to 740.

Could it be that we are reaping what we have sown by blindly following the secular-progressive’s model for an “improved” society; a society in which we teach 8th graders to put condoms on bananas, use prime-time soft-core porn TV shows and video games to raise our children, and then tell parents that if they attempt to discipline their children we will put them in jail?

Many of today’s kids simply have no moral compass!  Why? Because our schools and the National Education Association (NEA), controlled by the secular-progressives in our society, have waged a campaign of intolerance of anything remotely resembling a Christian idea (see War on Christmas or God Bless America), told us that right and wrong are relative (one man’s rapist is another man’s role model … so you can’t make a judgement), and that being an American is a bad thing (see no “anti-American” textbooks allowed in Texas).  

Oh yeah, the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) also tells us that a picture of the Virgin Mary decorated with elephant feces and pictures of women’s vaginas is art!  But that’s another story … or is it?

Merry Christmas

I watched a video clip the other day on Fox News about two women from New York , Ughetta Jilleba and Dale Kolareck, who are expanding their “It’s OK to Say Merry Christmas to Me” campaign.  They are associated with the Pope John Paul II Court of Catholic Daughters of the Americas.  This is such a wonderful idea. The money they raise goes to support food banks and the homeless.

I get so fed up with these secular-progressive liberals out there who claim to be so tolerant.  They are very tolerant … when it comes to  supporting gay rights, pardoning convicted cop killers, releasing pedophiles back into society, supporting terrorists who are attacking American citizens, pornography in prime time television, apologizing for America’s endless list of crimes against radical Islamists, or befriending local communist dictators.  However, when it comes to Christians and saying “Merry Christmas,”  somehow they are so easily offended and often nastily intolerant.

I am so glad to see that Lowes has backed off from selling “Family Trees” this year and is going back to selling Christmas Trees.  They are even re-releasing their “holiday,”  or dare I say it … Christmas catalog, to correct the little  “Family Tree” issue.

It is all so very odd to me!  I have never been offended by hearing “Happy Hanukah” or seeing Muslim women wearing their veils.  I personally think the Rastafarian “hair style” is a little extreme, but I am not offended by it. Why are these such open-minded, tolerant people so easily offended by wishing folks a Merry Christmas, Peace On Earth, or Good Will Toward Men?

Anyway, I ordered twenty of these “Its OK to Say Merry Christmas to Me” buttons.  I may order more.  I will certainly wear one and will give one to anyone I know that wants to wear one.  It is certainly OK to wish me a Merry Christmas!!  In closing I am going to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!  If that offends you … get a life!!

A Surge Success Story

Despite Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s declaration last April that, “This war is lost,” the surge planned and implemented under the direction of General Petraeus is actually working quite well. While many liberal mainstream news media outlets have seemingly ignored this, Fox News has been reporting this fact for some months now. Even the Knoxville New Sentinel has finally run a front-page story on the decrease in violence around Baghdad.

However, it you want some real proof that the surge in Iraq is working, just look at a news story that appeared on the Raleigh News & Observer’s wire on Tuesday, October 16. The headline reads “Iraqi cemetery business falls.” The story, written by the journalistic team of Jay Price and Qasim Zein, describes how business, at what is believed to be the world’s largest cemetery and a place where Shiite Muslims aspire to be buried, just hasn’t been so good lately. The Raleigh News & Observer is an affiliate of the antiwar McClatchy Newspapers.

According to the story, the reduction in violence around Iraq has cut burials in the Wadi al-Salam cemetery by at least one-third over the last six months. This has dramatically cut the pay of thousands of cemetery workers who earn a living by digging graves, washing corpses, and selling burial shrouds.

With a family chanting “Death to infidel America and the agent Iraqi government” in the background, a worker named Basim Hameed commented, “Certainly, when the number of dead increases I feel happy, like all workers in the grave yard. This happiness comes from the increase in the amount of money we have.”

This loss of income for these cemetery workers due to the decline in violence is certainly a sad state of affairs. Perhaps our Democratic Congress can pause their efforts to lose the war long enough to address this issue.

Out of ammo …

The last time I went down to the State Department of Safety to renew my concealed carry permit I got into a conversation with the officer who was processing my paperwork. In the course of our conversation, it came up that I was a karate instructor and the officer expressed surprise that I, as a “karate expert,” would feel the need to carry a gun.

I explained that I do not teach “sport” karate. That to me, classical karate is strictly an art of scientific personal protection. In the modern world, realistic personal self-protection must also include the ability to proficiently use guns and knives, as well as the ability to deal with assailants who may be carrying such weapons.

Karate is for when I run out of bullets …

God, Guns, Martial Arts, Food, German Shepherds, Books and Politics! You know … important stuff!
