Ban the incompetent child, not guns

The incompetent child

An incompetent child is one who grows to the age of adulthood without the coping skills to be an adult in a complex world — one that requires the utmost in personal responsibility. My definition. So what.

It is the incompetent child — regardless of chronological age — who causes harm in society and the reason why is simple. That person is under stress trying to exist in the face of family issues, financial difficulties, and just the burdens some people face getting through the day. The incompetent child will, as a coping mechanism, turn to drugs and alcohol or, increasingly, find solace in gang affiliation. Sometimes that gang is the Islamic Jihad.

I can solve the federal budget

I’m serious. I can solve the federal budget problem without cutting any essential programs. This is a simplistic article espousing what we all know and feel. But writing it will make me feel better, and maybe it will prompt someone to speak up, to write a letter, or to discuss the problem with a neighbor. I/you/we can solve the federal budger. Here’s how.

Lighting Candles at Camp Agape

At Camp at the end of the second day there is held a candle lighting ceremony when the center of the room has a draped table adorned with nothing but candelabra, where each camper, their buddy, and the volunteers have placed a photo of the person whom they have recently lost, or whom they particularly wish to honor this year.

Go Carly! Run for the GOP nomination for president

Carly Fiorina
Carly Fiorina

Go Carly! Carly Fiorina should run for the Republican nomination for President. Even if she does not get the nomination her presence, presumably running mainly against Hillary and not the other republican primary candidates, will serve a useful purpose. Continue reading “Go Carly! Run for the GOP nomination for president”

Democrats are Gruberized

Democrats are Gruberized and they can’t brush it off or wash it off. “Gruberized” is the newest verb/adjective in the lexicon and the Democrat Party, the whole party, has been Gruberized. President Obama and every Democrat who touted and voted for the “Affordable” Care Act (ACA) is trying to run from the comments of Professor Jonathan Gruber by accusing the GOP of “fanning the flames” of his comments. No, quite the contrary. Continue reading “Democrats are Gruberized”

Conundrum – Socialism vs America

Definition of Conundrum

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century. Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

 The direction of our country

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

And here’s another one worth considering…

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. Think about it…..

and Last but not least,

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?
