Education Does Not Cure Ignorance

leave a comment »

Judge Shira Scheindlin has proven that all the education in the world can not cure ignorance. It’s too bad that Cornell and Columbia University did not offer any classes in common sense. Her ruling against the NYPD’s Stop and Frisk program will benefit no one except the criminal.
It’s of no surprise that at least three of her previous rulings have been overturned on appeals.

Judges such as Scheindlin and Nicholas Garaufis, who ruled that the NYC Fire Department test was biased, have proven that they are more concerned with grabbing headlines and making a name for themselves than doing what’s right for the people of this country. Both need to be censured.
Both have demonstrated through their rulings why judges should not be seated for life but should serve for a specific term.

(Both Scheindlin and Garaufis were appointed by President Clinton.)

Who’s Responsible for Sandy Hook?

After the latest tragedy in Connecticut, a lot of people are calling for armed guards in our schools as a means of protecting our children. Really?
Armed guards in our pre-schools? Our kindergartens? Our grammar schools? High schools?

The simple fact that we are even discussing this or have to consider this as a real possibility shows how far we have fallen as a society, how morally corrupt we’ve become and how lost we really are.

Apparently it is easier to blame the gun than to hold the person using the gun responsible and accountable for his/her actions?
It is certainly easier than looking at ourselves and our role in all of this.

We’ve taken God and prayer out of our schools. Corporal punishment is no longer allowed. We’ve taken to arresting parents for disciplining their children. We suspend and sue police officers who may have been too hard on “your” child.

Gratuitous sex and violence have permeated almost every video game around.
No longer does one need to go to a movie theater to see violent, gory, sex filled movies. HBO, Showtime and every other premium cable channel will show them right in your living room, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Any child with a remote control now has access to these movies.

We embrace such television shows as The Jersey Shore, Mob Wives, Real Housewives, Jerry Springer, Honey Boo Boo, Maury and countless others.

We’ve taken Porn out of Times Square but moved it into our homes via the Internet.

We now teach our children that Heather has two mommies but ignore the fact that little Johnny has no father and twelve brothers and sisters, all by different men.

We now accept and recognize “gay marriage” while traditional marriage is on the decline.

We no longer keep score at children’s sporting events in an effort to show that everyone wins.

We allow boys to join The Girl Scouts and girls to join the The Boy Scouts.

In our effort to teach acceptance we are teaching that everything is acceptable. We seem to have forgotten that there is a difference between accepting and respecting. One can respect another’s political and religious beliefs or sexual orientation without having to accept it as their own. When everything is acceptable, the difference between right and wrong is indiscernible.
Especially to children and adolescents.

The word “NO” has become almost non existent. People want what they want and think they are entitled.

Politicians such as Bill Clinton, Elliot Spitzer, Jim McGreevey and others continually disgrace and make a mockery out of the positions they hold.

Michael Vick, Plaxico Buress, Christopher Wallace, Tupac, Nicki Minaj and countless others could not be any worse role models for our youth. Yet we allow our children to embrace their music, root for them on game day and even wear their team jerseys.

Our nightly news shows report nothing but violence and tragedies, sensationalizing every death, every car accident and any thing else that will boost ratings.

We are legalizing and decriminalizing marijuana while criminalizing any sugary drink over sixteen ounces.

We call all of this progress and believe we are becoming a more civilized society when in fact it is this decadence and general acceptance of everything that is causing our society to collapse. We are at the point where “anything goes.”

It took the Roman Empire roughly four centuries to fall.
If we continue on this course, we will continue to see these senseless violent tragedies and we will bring about our demise even quicker.

Who’s responsible for Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, and the others?
We all are.

Way to Go America!!!!!

In a televised press conference, immediately following the attack at Fort Hood, it took this president almost two and a half minutes to acknowledge the tragedy. I guess discussing a meeting with Native Americans was more important than acknowledging that twelve people were killed and thirty wounded on a US Army Base.

To make matters even more unbelievable, this president gives a “shout out” during his opening remarks.

A “shout out.”

What world leader speaks this way? How can anyone expect to be taken seriously when they talk like this?

Could you imagine John F. Kennedy, George Bush, Bill Clinton, The Queen of England or any other world leader for that matter addressing the press and giving a “shout out” to someone?

Imagine FDR in his radio address following D Day. “I’d like to give a shout out to my man Dwight D. Eisenhower for a job well done.”

Imagine?

Is it me?

Once again this president shows his ignorance and his inability to act like a president.

He has no clue.

Way to go America. Hope this was the change you wanted.

What We’ve Come to Accept

with one comment

Why do we expect so much from our politicians and leaders yet accept so little?

I think back to the election of 1992. Bill Clinton admits trying marijuana but tells us he didn’t inhale. Remember the shock? The possible scandal? A presidential candidate admitting to using illegal drugs. Theretofore unheard of. Would this lead to his downfall? The collapse of his campaign? You know the outcome.

Fast forward sixteen years later. Along comes Obama. Forget the marijuana, we now have the first president to admit to using cocaine. Cocaine ladies and gentlemen.

But hey, even though he admits to the pot and the booze and a little blow back in high school, he says he never did smack.

And we accept this why? For his honesty? His openness? Give me a break. Familiarity breeds contempt.

God Bless the United States of America.
