An E-mail Worth Posting

I have received this a number of times.

But as a parent, I find it harder and harder to do my job. Not because I am lazy or couldn’t care less about the welfare of my children, but because everywhere I turn there is an obstacle in my way.

I am trying to do my job, however, it would be a lot easier if every other parent would try and do theirs! We could actually help one another out! Imagine that!

Just the other day my 11 year old daughter was asked to go see a movie with her friends (acquaintances really) last Saturday. They were going to see Employee of the Month. I said yes, even though I was not pleased that no one would be supervising them in the theater. So I decided I would sit a few rows behind or in front of the girls. But upon further investigation, I realized this movie was NOT appropriate for my daughter. It was rated PG-13 for crude and sexual humor and language! This was not a movie I wanted my daughter to see. I explained to her my reasons, and she very graciously said it was OK, she didn’t have to go see the movie. (I was prepared for an arguement but I got lucky!) It is up to the parents to set boundaries.

This e-mail speaks volumes and I wanted to share it with my readers, even if you’ve seen it before. 

 And now the e-mail…

WOW, WHAT A WAKEUP!

I am not allowed in schools.

How did this get started?…

—————–
Let’s see,
I think it started when Madeline Murray O’Hare complained
she didn’t want any prayer in our schools.And we said, OK.

——————

Then,  someone said you better not  

read the Bible in school,
the Bible that says
“thou shalt not kill,
thou shalt not steal,
and love your neighbors as yourself,”
And we said, OK…—————–

Dr. Benjamin Spock said
we shouldn’t spank our children
when they misbehaved
because their little personalities
would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.And we said,
an expert should know what he’s talking about
so we won’t spank them anymore..


——————
Then someone said
teachers and principals better not
discipline our children when they misbehave.
And the school administrators said
no faculty member in this school
better touch a student when they misbehave
because we don’t want any bad publicity,
and we surely don’t want to be sued.And we accepted their reasoning…


——————
Then someone said,
let’s let our daughters have abortions if they want,
and they won’t even have to tell their parents.And we said, that’s a grand idea…


——————
Then some wise school board member said,
since boys will be boys

and they’re going to do it anyway,
let’s give our sons all the condoms they want,
so they can have all the fun they desire,
and we won’t have to tell their parents they got them at school.And we said, that’s another great idea…

——————

Then some of our top elected officials said
it doesn’t matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.
And we said,
it doesn’t matter what anybody,  including the President,
does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good….


——————

And someone else took that appreciation a step further
and published pictures of nude children
and then stepped further still by
making them available on the Internet.
And we said, everyone’s entitled to free speech….

——————

And the entertainment industry said,
let’s make TV shows and movies that promote
profanity, violence and illicit sex…
And let’s record music that encourages
rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes…
And we said,
it’s just entertainment
and it has no adverse effect
and nobody takes it seriously anyway,
so go right ahead.

——————

Now we’re asking ourselves
why our children have no conscience,

why they don’t know right from wrong,
and why it doesn’t bother them to
kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.


—————— Undoubtedly,
if we thought about it long and hard enough,
we could figure it out.
I’m sure it has a great deal to do with…
“WE REAP WHAT WE SOW,”

Too Much Spam

I would like to start out by saying I am OK!

I apologize to my loyal readers that have come upon my site to only realize I have added nothing new here since the beginning of September.

My life has been real busy.

I finally come back to find a lot of spam that has been caught and a lot that  has not. I want to stress that in no way do I support any of the spammers on my posts. I will try hard to find them and weed them out. Especially the offensive adult content ones.

Due to this problem – I will be blocking many comments on my older posts – the ones that had to deal with my class that I took last spring. The one that dealt with cyberporn. It was a wonderful class and I enjoyed it immensely. I learned a lot as well. Unfortunately, many spammers search a certain topic and because I discussed these items, they feel they are welcome to post their raunchy comments. NOT TRUE.

I apologize again if any of this has offended you at any time.  Comments are always welcomed, however, I will not tolerate any X-rated even R rated remarks or ads. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Yup That was Me!
