Civilizations Need to be Civilized

The only way humans become civilized is the same we have domesticated our pets.  We all need proper training.  Much like bad pets sorely in need of obedience training, many people are completely lacking in important manners and social skills that will enable them to survive in the world.  That may even save some of their lives!

Through many years of learning the hard way I’m sure, man has learned what is appropriate and not acceptable by their fellow planet dwellers.  During the swinging 60’s the media became the mouthpiece for selfish clowns that declared “God is dead” and “if it feels good, do it!”  The fact that these flakes were either higher than kites or just rebelling against their years of strict parenting meant nothing to most people because as long as attractive people that dress nicely and speak in well modulated voices say something, they believe it.

Parents loved hearing that little Johnny no longer needed to be disciplined because it might cramp his style or hurt his psyche.  Heaven forbid he hear the word no and be scarred for life!  Who wouldn’t want to believe the clones on TV?  Makes your life easier, you don’t have to care what your children are doing or fight with them anymore.  Who cares if they burn down the house or start killing others when they get a little older?

We all should!

We are all animals and for any animal to get along with others and survive, certain skills must be learned.  The most important of which used to be taught in the home with other siblings or when starting school and that is sharing.  Because only children are more common now, the sharing part is a little trickier than with those that have had to share mom’s love or a room with someone growing up.  The fact remains, conscientious parents do care what their children’s future will be and intelligent ones realize just how important social skills are.

Sadly, the very people that need to learn these skills are usually the last ones that do.  This makes life unpleasant to downright dangerous for everyone.  Neglected children are some of the most angry and disturbed and for the fact that they are “neglected” it means that no one is teaching them anything that will help them in their struggles to fit into an already cruel world.  It’s much easier on a child to fit into a crazy, evil world if they’ve known security and love since birth.  Those that do not feel wanted or loved will treat everyone that slights them later with severe anger because it stirs up the wounds they carry from their painful childhood.  That’s why some can handle a job with a crazy boss much better than others.  No baggage regarding crazy, so they don’t take the abuse or slights personally.

Manners are so important to getting along with others and being liked, but if someone already knows there is not love for them in the world, they have given up on trying to please or placate others.  To them it’s more of an unrealistic expectation to think that others that don’t even like them should expect a smile or kind word from them.  It’s fake to them and it is, make no mistake.

Manners are very fake, but very necessary to making others feel important and showing that you do care.  As artificial as saying please and thank you are, they make others feel as if you are acknowledging them as someone worth respecting.  Neglect is not respect.  Abuse is not fun, but neglect is like saying “you are dead to me” and that’s actually worse.

The more people are neglected, the further they disconnect from the feelings of others, genuinely.  Then when a tragedy occurs many that were raised with somewhat normal parents will ask “why?”  This is why!  These are the people that have no idea what compassion is and never even learned to how fake it.  They are beyond trying to “impress” others and have given up trying, they cannot relate to others.  Then if someone gets on their last twisted nerve, it doesn’t end well.

Mothers, love your children and teach them well while you still can!

#Bring Back Our Girls!

Sounds good, doesn’t it?  Maybe to most of you.

Sounds completely insane to me.

Do you think that completely evil, soulless people care what you think or say?

Of course not.

This is the very reason that Jesus told the people that loved him to keep His commandment of love.  He said to spread this gospel of peace and love to all corners of the world.

The liberals have made it their life’s mission to take the very Words of God out of our public buildings, take prayer out of school and some of the ignorant say “God is dead,” like that can happen.  They have rejected and mocked the Words of Christ, yet they are so insane as to demand that “devils” now obey God’s law.  The liberals don’t even do this.  They may not kidnap girls en masse but to coddle bad behavior and lack of self-control in others does not bring out anyone’s best.  Weak people with no faith do not have the power to command evil to bend. Remember that.

Jesus had power over evil spirits and spoke of the house well swept.  People that do not fill their hearts with love and the Word risk it being filled with something else less wholesome.  Sometimes worse than network TV with its bad examples and evil acts.

Shame on anyone who can find fault with those who teach love, heal and help others.  Shame on those who mock and break commandments thinking they are better than God.  Shame on the liberals of Christ’s time called Pharisees who tried to appear helpful and holy and were anything but.

How unfair is it not to warn others of the impending doom their actions may bring to themselves once their time here on earth comes to an end.  There actually is a method to the supposed madness some have in their faith.

Back to School!

I remember so many things about starting a new school year. It meant I was finally going to get new shoes to replace the ones I long outgrew with the holes and sometimes cardboard placed in the soles. I would get a few pieces of clothing as needed and since I was the oldest, no hand-me-downs, even though my little sister was physically larger than myself.  Some of the clothing was hand-made by my mother or grandmother and did look homemade.  Sometimes my grandma had enough savings to take us to Federal’s Department store for a dress or two, my dad had more important things to spend his money on when he was working.  I can’t remember where we purchased our shoes.  I didn’t really care about the actual school supplies, it made me nauseated to look at them!

It meant I had to brace myself for another year of bullies and mini-aholes.  The “popular” kids with all the right clothes and all the right words.  The teachers that were supposed to be teaching me, but never saw me, or pretended not to.  I was the plain little mouse that looked out-of-place in the homemade clothes and one long braid down past my butt.  It was worse than being Amish, I was poor.  When I was very young, we were only allowed one bath a week, whether we needed it or not.  When we got to live with grandma, we were cleaner.  So dirty, poor, oddly dressed, you get the picture.

I could never concentrate on the menial subjects my teachers were always blabbing about.  You see, I found it much more compelling to wonder if there was going to be any dinner tonight.  If my ghost of a father would stumble home after we went to bed hungry and decide that we needed to be punished for being born.  My teacher would try to pry my brain away from my true life of poverty, abuse and neglect, to a world where 2 + 2 actually equalled 4.  Did I care at the time?  Hell, no!  After a good beating for no reason I would worry for days about what evils awaited me that evening.  I knew that I could be as good as gold and still not be safe.  I heard of spankings and punishments and knew, the older I got, that  bad kids were punished, not good ones.  That’s why it took me so long to believe.  To even be able to comprehend things such as a Holy Father, because mine was evil.  Forgiveness, because I had never known mercy and to give, because I had nothing to give anyone, not even myself.

I think of all the children starting their new school year without much of a chance, even with “No Child Left Behind.”  That sounds really purty and nice, but it’s bull.  It’s not realistic.  The only way you will stop children from being left behind is to educate parents properly to love and nurture and actually being able to change the human heart.  I don’t know of any way to change a person full of hate that wants to hurt or even kill their child, to an angel of mercy unless a miracle happens.  Only God can change a heart and it starts by knowing the teachings of Christ.  It starts for the parent when they stop beating themselves up for not being loved and the cognizance that they never deserved to be abused or neglected and that it didn’t feel good so why on earth would you knowingly put your own child through it?  The day you can look at yourself with the mercy an abusive parent never had, is the day you can start to change and give your own children a chance in a world that is demanding and cruel.  The day you can start to truly love yourself, you will stop trying to turn your own children against you.  Abuse and neglect is an ugly cycle that needs to be stopped and it can only be stopped by sober love.
