Remember the days! When we did something wrong? And we know we did? And got punished for it?
In today’s society and world! The means and method of how to that come into play. For some of us, it was dads belt, paddle (As in school), And yes with some parents the switch. But! Those parents knew when to put the breaks on it! FDR said it best: “The United States Constitution has proved itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

And yes! Even our current laws are that way! If you really read the article! Even the 50 states themselves. Are not sure. But something has to be done.
For some kids! When they were growing up! Perhaps their parents did not tell why they got hit by whatever means they deemed necessary. Was it “The punishment fit the crime?” Only the parents now.
It also could be because! When their parents were goring up! Whatever they got. Their kids got when they had them. Thus! The vicious cycle begins. But the problem of child abuse has been kept in hiding for so long. It was not until the 1980’s that it slowly came fourth and was being discussed.
Are our lawmakers really solving problems? Or dancing around them to make sure when election time comes. Their seat will remain warm for them?
This is something that I can relate to. Both directly! And indirectly.
Because some these things did happen to me. And others I know of people who had it happen to them as well.
First off! Not all conversations are two-way! Sometimes between friends they can be one-way as well. What I mean is. If a friend has a problem with something. For all we know they just want someone to just listen to them. I know what you think: “What’s the catch?” Perhaps! They needed someone to bounce off the problem to. Sometimes be a sounding board for them.This is just a little bit of what being a friend is about.
Be happy for your friends success! This can be a tough one for some people. Because of the kind/type of friend s/he is.
An example. I had a so-called friend that over the years. He a nothing good to say about me not in any way! But as time went on. I was always happy for him. Then I learned something! I do not need people such as him who are only concerned about them and not others.,
I am happier now! Than I was when we were together.
But that! Is just an isolated incident!
I was searching for something the other day!
And I came across this! At first I was surprised to see it. But when I looked up these things I found there was more than I even dared to think about . What is even more interesting! Is that the fact that these are some the one’s that Even I use.,
The one on responsibility can be a big one to some people. But it’s about personal responsibility for growing and becoming who you want to be in your life not anyone else’s.
Down the list!
“Don’t expect instant results!” Change does come slowly. We all know! Nothing comes easy. But this is about us! And how we want to change and perhaps take on something better.
I think that there are people who are not sure! If they can make any changes in their life because of how they were brought up. I now! I keep gong back to the days of “When they were growing up!” But it is true! There is either something their parents said/did! Or someone said/did or during that time. There is always residue/excess baggage in all our lives. We just were not taught how to get rid of it.
With me! I have met and encountered kids and adults (If they can be called that!) that have said/did stuff but those people are up and over!
I have said it before but it still true! The past is in the past! Why even bother talking about it? Or if you ever meet them again. What good will it do? Nothing will ever change about it!
All you can do is learn from it, leave it where it is in the past and move on!
Gun buyback programs to me! Are not a cure all! Nor an end to all also. Because people believe it or not. Do have opt’s. To those who do not have a gun. They can buy one and turn it in just to take advantage of what comes with it! Or! Turn theirs in for the same. How? Does that solve the problem? It’s the ever so cheapest band-aid there is!,
And even that very day of the buyback you will hear of some crime was committed with the use of a gun. In that very same city! Let’s say! That! There was on one day a city to city confiscation of any kinds and types of weapons. One problem with that! There is the “Black Market” Yes! The price may be high to buy a gun or any other weapon. But to weapon enthusiast/lovers it really does not matter at all!,
As well with “Gun control!” At any level of Government! Gun control laws can be drawn up from now to the time of the end! The problem will still be with us. Reducing the output of gun manufacturers. DOUBT! Because that would be Government interference. No business ever wants that! Put gun mfg’s. ,out of business? Again! DOUBT! That would put both us and Government and law enforcement in a bind!,
I guess we are back to square 1!
