ORIGINAL POST from PurposeOnThePrairie 

In less than 24 hours since Donald Trump has been named the President-elect of the greatest nation on this earth, it’s become apparent he’s being given far more credit than he’s due.  There’s anguished cries of, ‘How will my children grow up knowing not to discriminate?’ or, ‘How can I look my daughter in the eye and tell her she has purpose?’  Really?  Really, America?  You have given Donald Trump, a mere mortal man, far more credit than he deserves, especially considering the man hasn’t even taken office yet.  Trump does not have the power to mold our families, that is our flat-out our responsibility.

Your children will learn to love or hate, be respectful or disrespectful, wise or foolish, not by the character of the family in the White House, but by the family in their house.  May I submit to you that your sons and daughters will be far, far more influenced by their teachers, coaches, 4-H, FFA, Scouts or church group leaders than they will a man on TV.  I don’t feel my character was molded by the Bush, Clinton, or Obama families, but I did learn perseverance from my Dad, work ethic from my Mom, and to do my best (and then redo it) from my sister.  My college bible study leaders modeled to me how to seek God and my husband leads me in prayer.

Should those in the public spotlight conduct themselves in a honorable fashion with utmost integrity?  Absolutely.  However, it is not the responsibility of Miss America, the NFL, or the President, to set the example of moral conduct.  It is not the government’s responsibility to ensure American children have a good example.  It is our responsibility, as American citizens, to ensure that we lead our youth in showing what is right and good and honorable and true.  One good, God-fearing, America respecting football coach can do far more to shape the hearts and minds of teenage boys than Colin Kapernick.  If we want to make a difference, let’s stop worrying about Trump’s moral example and take an active role in our classrooms, churches, youth groups, sports team, 4-H and FFA.

Secondly, it is only a lie that one man in Washington can determine another person’s value or worth.  If you’re living and breathing, you have a purpose.  Case closed.  God fearfully and wonderfully made each one of us, and then continues to work in us for His good pleasure!  If I ever, ever seek another man or woman’s approval or affirmation to find purpose in my life, I will be sorely disappointed.  It does not matter if that individual is a supervisor, friend, husband, or the President himself, no one can provide me with purpose outside of the Lord.

Friends and fellow Americans, “Your success as a family… our success as a nation… depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house.”  I pray these wise words of Barbara Bush should resonate with us, our nation has always and will always depend on the moral fiber of our families, nothing more, nothing less.  God bless, America, and America, bless God!

Non-Normative Legislation – Or – Who Stole My Cheerios!

It started out as a good idea.  Then they tried to make a new issue by creating a “need” for more legislation to control civilian behavior.   It actually is an example of how the left wants to control and/or limit your freedom and liberty in order to live a good life.

The Duke University Law School supports an internet portal for legal professionals to make referencing a case easier and to assist in building an argument.  There is even a new kind of class litigation termed “non-normative” that allows far-reaching speculation to grab traction as an accepted legal argument in an otherwise empty fish bowl.

20 Things I Wish Vaccine Junkies Would Admit

I’d Like to Commend Levi Quackenboss and i present his Blog and commentary on this vaccination issue. Like Levi – I particularly enjoy putting the Boss in Quack.

  1. Not all of the diseases we vaccinate children for are serious or appropriate.  Many of them are a matter of inconvenience and some are for manufactured epidemics: Hep B, HPV, chickenpox, flu.  This isn’t to minimize the rare adult or child death from chickenpox but that number is 1/40th of the deaths from vaccine-induced SIDS.
  2. Immunity from vaccines doesn’t last forever. Most adults would be considered “unvaccinated” today for everything but the viral diseases they naturally acquired. Even if you buy into the theory of herd immunity, most of our herd is not immune.
  3. True herd immunity is based on animals that naturally acquired viral disease.  Oftentimes immunity comes from eating the herd members that died from the disease or putting their diarrhea into feed. Farmers know that herd immunity isn’t based on vaccination.
  4. You are not really vaccinating your newborn child for…

Legislating Goodness is a tough act.  Legislating Righteousness, however, seems to be a worthwhile endeavor for some politicians.  But where exactly is the motivator for these incredible monstrous stacks of legal babble?  It’s Money.  Not goodness.  Not even righteousness.

Let’s take a look at the Export-Import Bank.

Export-Import Bank

Once the brain-child (or brain-fart) of President Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted by Executive Order it has over the decades turned into a virtual corporate welfare bank system that assures products which cannot be sold on the open-market throughout the world are consumed by this official government agency.  Almost a no risk – no worry – we buy everything Kool-aid stand which should have the motto,” Give it to Mikey!  He’ll eat anything! “

And just who is it that is trying to get this thing re-authorized?  None other then your favorite (and mine) POTUS.  The Pretender of the United States.  And you thought he was on YOUR side – the struggling middle-class under-employed taxpayer who waddles up to the voting booth to happily exercise his right to be uninformed and vote.

There are two sides to every coin.  That is if you have any ‘change’ left after the G-Man gets his share.

Pepto-Bismol?  No.  How about a dose of Common Sense!!

Despite the ultimate, spirit-crushing lobotomy visited upon Nicholson’s Randle McMurphy following his strangling of the nurse, one of the really exceptional elements of ‘One Flew’ is that the institution is not portrayed as malicious for its own sake. Ratched is stern and rigorously enforces her regime – to the detriment of the patients – yet, until the heartless humiliation of Bibbet, her good intentions are never really in question. You get the sense she genuinely believes her methods are the best way bring stability or order to disordered lives. Here (in a refreshing break from the norm) the system, though it medicates patients into docility and uses electro-shock therapy as a punishment, is not depicted as deliberately cruel.

Perhaps (the forced lobotomy of McMurphy aside) Ratched’s greatest act of cruelty is subtle and indirect. Though most of her patients are in the hospital voluntarily – and therefore permitted to leave at any time – none of them express even the faintest desire to do so, thanks to her control over them and the relative security it brings. Through her regime Ratched merely seeks to pacify her wards, with little thought of preparing them to reintegrate with society. This horrifies McMurphy who thinks only of freedom. Though clearly a loose cannon, he’s not himself mentally ill: he’s a criminal who’s had himself committed in order to avoid manual labour and serve the rest of his sentence in relative comfort.

This allows him to witness, and experience, the pitfalls of institutionalisation. It is ambiguous whether he fails to escape the night of the illicit party (falling asleep) or simply decides not to – preferring to stay within this new community in which he has become an important member. Either way McMurphy becomes the unwilling victim of a system that seems designed to make people easier to handle, rather than working to enrich their lives. In this respect the hospital is not too dissimilar from the prison Nicholson’s character has left behind.

Sorry Goodwill.  The lobotomy didn’t take.
