My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

COMMON SENSE ABOUT MASS MURDER IN AMERICA

It is horrible what has and is happening in America with all the mass murders.  Americans are harming one another at an alarming rate.  The shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut is but the latest in tragedies perpetrated against innocent victims in America.  Although no one knows just yet the true cause, it appears that the young man was a deeply disturbed person, to say the least.

The liberals, along with their lap dogs–the liberal press, are already out calling for gun control.  Will they never learn that it is the disturbed person at fault, not the gun, gun owners or the gun manufacturers? In fact, if you are going to blame a segment of folks, we should blame the far left or liberals, if you will; because, it is due to their policies that I believe we will find the root cause of these tragedies.

As I see it, we have raised a generation that is devoid of any of life’s foundations needed to progress through life itself.  I watched every politician on T.V. today ask for the public to pray for the victims and to pray for their families.  Even President Obama called for our prayers to console the families.  They and the liberal press called for these prayers all the while not realizing that they are the ones that have removed prayer from schools so the children know less about the power of prayer than any time in our history.  If you want people to pray for any reason, they must first be taught how and taught of the power of prayer.  We have no mention of the “TEN COMMANDMENTS” in school or any other public forum.  In Matthew 7:12 it is ,I believe, Jesus who says “Love thy neighbor as you love yourself”; but, our children of today do not hear this  nor understand the meaning.  The children of today have no spiritual foundation on which to build their lives.  You can ignore this fact; but, the chaos will continue until we make an effort to give leadership, both knowledge and spiritual, to our young.  They hear of the thousands murdered in the womb and you expect them to value life.  Just how stupid are we?  We, as a people, need to be more consistent in our views and teachings.  Now, I’m no preacher. But, I did grow up in a time when we prayed and said the pledge everyday in school and it served to help give me a spiritual background, loyalty to my country and to value life as well as our way of life. I had a strong mother who taught me these same fundamentals and all the while being reinforced in my school each and everyday.

This young man at fault for this tragedy most likely had none of the background that I grew up learning; thusly, devoid of the foundation to process thru his problems.  Just think if he had been taught and believed in the “TEN COMMANDMENTS.” He would have known to “Honor thy Mother and thy Father” or “Thou shalt not commit murder”.  These two alone would have, or should, have deterred him of his actions.  Just think for a moment—If we all lived our lives according to the “TEN” how great would life be, with no need for police, lawyers and courts.  Of course, the lawyers would not like that and there are mostly lawyers in D.C. making laws for us.

Folks, I have always said that the T.V. is the greatest educational tool ever invented and it has proved me right over the years.  What is on the T.V. is what our children are learning.  It is sex, drugs and violence and this display of violence has been learned.  Just as all the liberals want “BIG BIRD” to remain on PBS for our very young, our teens are learning from the trash on T.V.   Now, I know the libs will come after me; but, you can’t have it both ways.  If “BIG BIRD” is educational, then so is the trash.  For God sakes, wake up and smell the coffee.

Finally, “Common Sense” tells us to live by the “Golden Rule” of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and to do what is right even when no one is looking is a great way to live your life.  So get off your lazy duff, get a job, get off the dole, stand on your own two feet, help your fellow-man when you can and help a child understand that according to “GOD” they are special.  If that is not “Common Sense,” then I’ll eat my hat.
