on how to deal with terrorists.  It’s cost effective as well – much cheaper than the court system…

Of course, there has to be a back story to this one.  I just liked the idea and the pic.

There is an excellent book out there called the Underground History of American Education.  It is divided up into sections very heavily researched showing influences of various kinds on education.  One of the items was business which wanted to destroy the craftsman and create a consumer.  Schools were designed with a day schedule an an excessive amount of calendar time to accomplish their goals.  From another book on another subject, but associated with the idea of retraining – Thomas Sowell – the only reason to have sex education for more than a single instructional period is to change what the parents are teaching at home.  The day is planned.  The goal is accomplishing profit for a corporation.  In a similar vein, I found this article.

I was pondering that there are a couple ways to make money.  Actually four in practice.  One is with your mind.  One is with your body.  Another is stealing from someone else, and the last is investing – slightly related to the mind listed earlier.  The tendency is for those who use their mind to have higher incomes than those who use their bodies.   Medically speaking, those who make decisions make more than those who do the basic labor, excepting surgery and the like, of course.  Those in management make much more than those who are on the factory floor, even though those in management would be hard pressed to do the work which actually goes out the door into the sales arena.  As for theft, there is legal and illegal.  The illegal theft is simple.  The thief removes that of value from the owner.  There should be a punishment for this kind of act.  The hidden one is legal theft.  This is that which is removed from the owner by government and given for nefarious purposes and no retribution will ever result as the agent is the government itself.  This act is covered by the term “tax,” or in some cases “fees.”  The result is the same – removal of value from the owners.

What will legal push-back look like?  How will law abiding Americans approach the evil, law ignoring hordes in our midst without going to that side of the equation?  It is known that if we punch back in that fashion, those on the left haven’t a prayer.  Freedom loving Americans who uphold the rule of law and enjoy their second amendment tend to be on the right.  Loving law may be part of the issue.  Those on our side love what our country used to be and don’t want to join the left in that destruction.  What to do?  That’s quite a quandary.  Here is an article on the need to push back.  It doesn’t detail specific actions, just the need.

Remember that she is 14.

Good training somewhere in her past.  Congrats.  That is what the parents are supposed to do.  More chilling for the left, think about her voting prospects in the future when one of them starts spouting manure about the second amendment…

I was in the process of looking up some Irish music when I ran across this video.  Enjoy.

Siblinginbox and I had a very active father.  Who taught us how to scan and got the fish?  Dad.  Who taught us to shoot a 22 rifle with sites or scope? Dad.  Who taught us how to hammer a nail?  Dad.  Who taught us to take apart a screaming fan, oil the bearings, then reassemble?  Dad.  Who taught us working when the job was not fun but did need to get finished?  Dad.  ” Variety spice of life, but monotony brings home the paycheck.”  Who taught us the parts of the engine and that which required continual maintenance?  Dad.  Who taught us how to run a lawnmower, how to tie a knot, how to lash things onto your vehicle?  Dad. who taught us a truth Congress does not know, that if your money is spent for item “a,” you cannot buy item “b” with that same money because it is no longer available?  Dad.

 

What could a boy do whose dad was not available?  There used to be a couple alternatives for any boy in that position.  In some cases, grandpa was available.  In some cases there was an uncle.  From 100 years there were were the scouts.  When I was young, scouts taught skills, gentle competition, provide incentives for creativity using tools, and maintained a positive atmosphere around things masculine.  Scouts had a pledge that they used to say at every meeting.  All the boys stand with scouting salute and recite;

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Look at this pledge.  “On my honor”, what is honor apart from a quality in an individual?  “Do my best” has the active verb “do”.    What is more male than activity?  The associated  nown with this is duty.  Right here is noted that activity is associated with requirements or expectations and then these expectations are the associated with the general, the organization, the culture, and finally the self.  Certain of these expectations are specified, and those specified are associated with the personal. Physically strong is related to activity and not becoming a couch potato.  Mentally awake advises active brain activity and not passive reception that is trained and encouraged in media and education.  Morally straight was fought and won all the way through the Supreme Court. The former Boy Scouts maintain their integrity up to the early 2000s that immorality was not provided a place.

 

Homosexuality is immoral.  Period.  I have on occasion heard an argument from the homosexual advocate how the Bible condones their activity under the guise of love.  What is given, is the very definite clear description of judgment provided any who partake in homosexual activities.

 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

While the Boy Scouts managed to maintain their integrity from outside attacks, they lost war from the inside.  Their protected right of keeping the immoral out of leadership was given up.  They have now given up their basic identity.  Where is a boy supposed to go? Are there any more male only institutions?  Who is going to give male instruction to these boys such that they will become men? I pity those who do not have fathers and the next generation that will be trying to raise children without the necessary background skills.  Boys are not simply girls with a different set of genitalia.

 

Boys learn differently, behave differently, interact differently, and mature differently than girls.  Physical differences are numerous.  The mental and emotional differences are profound.  That is why consistently and hundred percent against any mixed combat troops.  Men will always behave differently with the female then with each other.  There’s already a comic out on the web showing pregnant teenage girl in a scout uniform saying how she enjoyed the camping trip. Therefore, even comics note there is no doubt the result of such a decision.  Siblinginbox and myself are blessed to grow up when we did.  I would wish our opportunities extended to future generations, but it looks like those chances are slowly being removed.
