I said a long time ago, that the taking of consequences out of our punishments would make a generation of kids and adults that would have no concept of good and bad. Right and wrong. We are living in that generation, people. With kids bringing guns to school, and yes, I realize that when I was going to school a lot of us had guns too, though most of them were stuck in the back windows of pickup trucks. We didn’t bring them to school to use on someone who made us mad. That is the difference. We knew better.
Back in my day at school, if I had ever done anything that was wrong, the principle of the school could and would spank me and then send me back to class. But, and this is a big one here, but, that wasn’t the end of it.
After I got sent back to class, my parents were called, and they were told what I did…..and then when I got home, I was in trouble all over again. NO my parents wouldn’t side with me. If I got in trouble at school, I got it equally as bad, if not worse at home…….and no, I didn’t blame my parents or try to sue them for it. I took my punishment, because I usually deserved it, and knew the next time I wasn’t going to do that again. I knew right from wrong. And knew, that when I did something wrong, I was in trouble. Getting the punishments that I did, taught me that difference. I knew right from wrong.
But the government came in, and screwed things up as they usually do. They came in and made programs to fix things that weren’t broken, making things really broken and in need of a fix. If the government would just leave things alone, then they wouldn’t need fixing again.
Speaking of CPS, *Child Protective Services* back in about 1974, when I was about 22, I had a couple of friends who were great people. They got married, and had two kids. One was, at the time, about 5 years old, the other was just an infant.
We used to go to the Kettle Restaurant there on San Mateo Blvd, almost every night to have coffee and talk. I always took my future wife at the time, and they always brought their kids.
The children were well behaved most of the time, and the one evening that I remember, the older boy for some reason was acting up. After being told to stop many times, the mother, took him into the bathroom and gave him a spanking., while Kathy, my future wife, went with her, the two guys…..stayed at the table with the baby.
Needless to say, during the spanking, a woman, * and I use the term loosely here* went into the bathroom and said something to my friend, and then walked out and went to the telephone and made a phone call. She turned my friend into Child Protective services, and they came out and took the boys the next day.
When this came up in court, I was there and actually talked during the hearing. I was there to tell the judge about their character. I also had an observation about what happened that really has rung true since that day.
Now people, these two were not child abusers or anything else. The woman who turned them in had stuck her fat nose into someones business where it didn’t belong. But here is essentially what I said there that day in court.
I said: ‘that the government was putting it’s nose into people’s business and it shouldn’t ever be there. The liberals have been taking away our rights and liberties for years, and this is just another example of this invasion of our privacy.
‘The woman that started this whole thing took offense to a child being spanked for acting bad. She had no idea what was really going on, but she made it her business to butt in. And I will tell you where this whole idea of crap is going to end up.
‘We are going to have, in the future, a generation of hoodlums who have grown up without any idea of what is right and what is wrong. To them there will be no consequences for their actions, and there will be no stimulus for them to do the right things. The only input that these children will have, is negative input because when they are good, nothing will be said. When they are bad, they will be called victims by the authorities and they will be coddled by the government and taken away from good parents.
The government is taking away the rights of the parents to parent, and to discipline and to love their children. That is the liberal way of doing things, and judge your part and parcel of this future problem.
We are heading into a time, when our children will be able to talk back to their parents because there will be no respect for their elders like their used to be. There will be no consequences to bad actions that will stop them from doing said bad actions. People in power like you judge will wonder what happened.
I can say now, that if you wonder that in the future judge, and you probably will, then you can think back to this day and what I am saying now, and you will know just what has happened. Because of judges who will make judgments against good people like my friends here, for disciplining their child, when he was bad, we will have murders in our schools, and kids carrying guns all over, and knives being used for the smallest of reasons.’
Sadly, this has all come to pass. We are in a “politically correct” type of society now where everything has to be liberally politically correct. Children cannot be punished by the parents anymore…in some states it is even against the law!
The Democrats and some of the Republicans who are in office in Washington D.C., have taken it upon themselves to take the place of the parents, and be the ones who discipline the children. The problem there is, with government dealing out the punishments, the government also has taken out the consequences of being bad, because in the liberal eye, no kid is bad…..he is just a victim of his environment. But that is wrong. He/she is not a victim of his environment, he/she is a victim of their government taking away consequences and trying to take God out of everything. Like a friend of mine today in the chatroom of my Saturday show at noon on BTR, said, the abuse comes from having no consequences.
Now, I am not saying that child abuse isn’t bad….because it is. What I am saying is that like all government agencies that get started, they start out with a good idea, and then keep getting added onto until it goes overboard and starts making a bad thing out of a good. That is where CPS and other governmental agencies are now. And we are about to elect a president who believe in everything that I have said here is bad. If elected, either Barack Hussein Obama, or Hillary Rodham Clinton will add to the problems by bringing into being more and more goverment programs that will do nothing but break something that doesn’t need fixing. Then, when the problem gets worse because of their interferance, then we will have to have it fixed, when it was okay in the first place. Mark my words here people. Either one of these two people are socialists and would do nothing good for America.
And you think things are bad now? Elect them and just wait. Things will get worse. Much worse.
God Bless America…..
God Bless our Troops…..
