‘MAKING AMEREICA GREAT AGAIN’ SERIES – COMMENTARY TWO – FIXING THE LAWS – PART ONE

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  Juanita Holloway-Walters

My husband jokes with me that if I were to create an epic movie, it would last about ten minutes after I had streamlined it, and edited it to death. Being able to see the big picture in business as well as the movies, I feel confident in saying that one important endeavor into “Making America Great Again” is that the ENTIRE “law of the land” must be whittled down into something the average American adult can understand. American citizens have proven their consciences are in good working order; as evidenced by 95% of America’s population do not break laws (1) – making them the all-important “self-governing citizens” ideal our founders believed could exist.

What we see on contemporary television, and movies, that often gives Americans a bad rap, is not a true picture of the real America. Sadly, there is a minority of the American population – a bag of tricks – of the rich, the famous, the thespians (and those of lesser abilities), the singers, the notorious no talents, the ghetto pimps (claiming to be preachers), the uber-athletic, and the political, who appear to live by some upside-down beliefs / rules / laws that they promote to the world. In that Bizarro-World they live in, right is often wrong, and wrong is often right. These people are the role models our children, and grandchildren are exposed to. This American false veneer of society reminds me of Bizarro-World from our childhood comic books. The enemy within has been very engaged in portraying these people as normal, while plying their socialist influence, as they are ever-chipping away at our Republic through much bad, destructive or useless laws.

The world seems to have begun the fight of all time. Broken down to the most common denominators of culture and education, this fight is absolutely a war of two religions / faiths / economies . . . of good and evil. Many titles can be given, but the division between the Real-America and the Veneer-America is the difference between a culture of life, and a culture of death. We each make a choice with our eyes wide open.

Because case law has taken on a form of judges each “discovering the right result” (2) in an atmosphere of “democracy,” equal justice under the law has become impossible. An identical court case in two different jurisdictions could have different results, and either conclusion might not be constitutionally correct. This is an excellent reason for a complete revamping of our laws in a format that all High School Graduates not only understand, but leave school with their own copy of the law.

We do not need for Congress to pass hundreds of laws every year. The more ways that you describe right and wrong – thieving and murdering – the more opportunity for lawyers to let bad people run the streets, and good people go to prison. The laws we have should be easy to understand; should each be written involving only one subject; and should be written with the support of “We the People.” At the time of voting for Obamacare, 59% of “We the People” were against it. They were clearly not doing “The Peoples” business when they made it law. The balances of justice have been off kilter for a long time. TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, the Scales of Justice must be re-balanced.

I have a direct life-line to my Creator. Because of this, I can see that LAWS ARE WRITTEN TO CONDEMN. The more laws, the more condemnation for the sake of condemnation. There are so many laws, that any government could pick you up, charge you with something ridiculous, and you would be forced to go through a flawed system which may or may not get the verdict right. Look no further than the law-suit over hot coffee to see that I am right. Our court systems have become a crap shoot. (Outcome based on the unpredictable roll of dice.)

IF I WERE CHARGED WITH MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN I WOULD RETURN THE USA TO OUR (JUDEO / CHRISTIAN BASED) CONSTITUTIONAL LAW.

I might have each state send a team of 30 citizens, capable of LAW SCRAPPING, that would have in its mix any of the following career classifications:

– Accountants with a minimum of 20 years-experience as an accountant;
– Business managers with a minimum of 20 years-experience as a corporate business manager;
– Small business owners with a minimum of 20 years-experience as a small business owner (1M or
less/yr.);
– Medium business owners with a min. of 20 years-experience as a med. Business owner (2M – 20M/yr.);
– Housewives with 3 or more children (children and step children) with a minimum of 5 years-experience;
– Chemical plant operators with a minimum of 15 years-experience as a Chemical Plant Operator;
– High school coaches with a minimum of 20 years-experience as a high school coach;
– History teachers with a minimum of 20 years-experience teaching American History;
– Professional umpires with a minimum of 20 years-experience as a Professional Umpire;
– Retail store managers with a minimum of 20 years-experience managing retail stores;
– Farmers with a minimum of 20 years-experience farming;
– and Police Officers with a minimum of 20 years-experience as a Police Officer.

All would meet in one location to investigate all federal laws for a few criteria with the expressed goal of scrapping every one possible, effective January 1, 2019. I guess you noticed absolutely no lawyers, no movie stars, or professional politicians allowed in our group of law scrappers. Period. Criteria:
1.) If history has changed the law’s meaning, or it is obsolete – it is time to give the law a scrapping funeral.
I.e. We no longer need a law for a servant to precede the carriage by 20 paces while carrying a lantern.
2.) If the law is un-Constitutional, and therefore cannot be a law, it must be scrapped.
I.e. There is a ruling for law, and the basis for the law is found nowhere in the Constitution.

3. There is no separation of church and state in the Constitution. To read the proof of this, please read my commentary on Mr. Jefferson’s Letters which can be found here: http://www.webcommentary.com/php/ShowArticle.php?id=hwaltersj&date=120810
4.) The law is redundant, and should never have been written, it must be scrapped.

5.) The law has impact on more than two topics; it is useless to the common man and it must be scrapped.

6.) If the law is one that the states are supposed to have control over; it must be scrapped.

7. All laws are written for all citizens in equality with no distinctions (I.e. Race, Sex), (for example: statutory rape is rape no matter which sex the victim is).

8. If fifty people on the committee cannot understand what the law is, it must be scrapped.

9.) If the law is Constitutional, and does not fit into the 1 – 8 descriptions above, then tell us why it should still be a law. These are the ones we should be keeping.

The special team could be called ‘America’s Law Scrapping Team’, and would be classifying the laws that are left into the 51 U.S. Title Codes – or less categories. What is left cannot be a book larger than what one high school senior can learn in a one year class entitled “Federal Laws, What Every Citizen Must Know.” We need for every child in our country to learn the laws that he/she are expected to live by.

How can we live in a Republic, and keep the peace, if the citizens do not know the Laws? By the same token, there must be a chapter in the book on the Bill of Rights, so our young adults understand them. There should be a further explanation in the difference between rights and privileges. For example, your driver’s license is a privilege.

If the laws cannot fit into a 600-page book, they will be further reduced / streamlined by those who will be on the Law Streamlining Team.  Each Law Scrapping Teams will select ten members to be on a secondary team for streamlining. This team will look at laws that are good, but need to be combined with all other laws on the same subject matter for streamlining, and providing a law that is the same without a ton of duplication and useless posturing.

‘MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’ SERIES – COMMENTARY ONE – MARRIAGE

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Juanita Holloway-Walters

This is it; the one that caused writer’s block. The subject matter has done much to divide America, and all the way down to the family and close, warm, personal, friend level in society. A question: Why should I turn my back on my centuries old Christian beliefs of marriage, to pretend to embrace someone else’s beliefs – JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT ME TO THINK SOMETHING I AM NOT HARD WIRED TO THINK? It is a ridiculous proposition. I am praying the emotional blackmail of deceitful Political Correctness has run its course, and failed in America. We may be surprised at how fast certain aspects of the Politically Correct model of America may change over-night, if American Christians turn away from Secular Christianity fraught with agnostic, and even pagan beliefs.

It still confounds me as to how such a small segment of our population was hijacked by the enemy within, using the truly evil practices of Political Correctness to insert counter-culture ideals into the very core of our American Culture. The “latest estimate shows that 3.8% of our population actually identify as LGBT,” as per Gallup. (1) We can scarcely turn on the big or little screens without having the gay lifestyle crammed down our throats. The fabric of our Christian nation is weak to have allowed this content to be in the realm of 100% saturation of our children through school, through television, and through music.

SKREEEEECCCHHHHHHH! STOP! NEWS FLASH! THE LIONS SHARE OF BLAME FOR OUR POLITICALLY CORRECT BROKEN AMERICA IS NOT THE 3.8% OF OUR POPULATION — IT IS A LARGE PORTION OF THE 75% OF AMERICANS WHO SAY THEY ARE CHRISTIANS – but, do not follow the Commandments Jesus gave us; nor do they follow the Ten Commandments handed down to Moses from God. No Christian precept may have been violated more than the scriptures telling us about Marriage. How many married Christians are following what the Word of God says about marriage? What Baby Boomers passed down to our children, and grandchildren is a lack of respect for our heterosexual Christian marriage. If the institution of marriage had not been sorely abused, we would be a wholesome America not needing to “Make America Great Again.”

How many marriages failed because The Lord was not present in the marriage? I can tell you that The Lord was not present in my failed marriages. Then I got on my knees and asked the Lord to forgive me for having a victim mentality when it came to relationships with men. I did not know my scriptures well, and therefore, I had no reference of what life was all about. Because I did not know my Bible, I was totally without any real help. We exist for God’s glory, and if we are here for God’s glory, then we should know what pleases God. One day I prayed to understand the scriptures, and it was as if a light had been turned on in my soul, and in my mind. Not only do I understand the scriptures, but I also understand who is in the scriptures and why my understanding is so important to a happy life.

Not long after that, I prayed on my knees, and asked The Lord to pick me a husband who loved The Lord, would be faithful to me, and who would love me in all the ways I love. My marriage with John for two decades has been a miracle to me every day. The love and respect in the beginning has grown over the years. Hardships came and went without much fuss, because we had something bigger in our lives than teen aged children testing us at every turn, careers, wealth, or health issues. I look back and see much love and laughter every day of our marriage ordained by God. We pray to be an example to our loved ones, and to others . . . even to be a catalyst for others to improve their marriages. John and I see other good marriages, and we are further strengthened in the purpose of the gifts God has given each of us to be a help to you when we are able.

For Americans to “Make America Great Again,” America’s Christian population must renew their relationship with Christ, and renew their commitment to great marriages. Great marriages make great families. Great families make an involved citizenry that looks to local schools, churches, and community institutions with The Lord’s Christian Absolutes in mind. WE DO NOT CHECK OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH AT ANY DOOR, FOR ANYONE. If we are Christian, who we are is Christian to the bone.

Sadly, only a small percentage of today’s American Christian population has read The Bible. Because they do not know what their Bible says, they have nothing of encouraging value when it is most needed.
“Today, about one-third of American adults report reading the Bible once a week or more. The percentage is highest among Elders (49%) and lowest among Millennials (24%).” (2) The Word of God, contains the Moral Absolutes Christians need to live a wholesome life.  ‘All come short of His Glory’ (3); and when we have fallen short of His Glory, we are to repent, seek forgiveness, and move on in life without the need to keep going back to learn the same lesson over, and over again. We are to grow spiritually, for which there is much help in studying The Bible.

Satan, and his minions, exist to trip you up by giving you the Big Lie of Moral Relativism. It means that my faith is the faith of life, and someone else’s is the faith of death. Moral Relativism says that they are equal and both true. It also means that the death crowd believes their views should be taught to my children, and it is only fair for my children to be exposed to their minority faith. I do not believe in Moral Relativism, and cannot abide by such negative and lethal forces to be allowed anywhere near my children, and grandchildren.

The truth is that our marriages are a reminder of the relationship Christ has with His Church here on Earth. When we dishonor the millennium old tradition of Christian marriage, we are also dishonoring our relationship with Christ – we are The Church – Christ’s Church. Our marriages should be an example to all the goodness of Holy union with our spouse, and with our Lord as members of His Church. There are many scriptures about marriage, but this is the most excellent in my view:

“EPHESIANS 5:
“20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto The Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church: and He is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as The Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by The Word,

27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as The Lord The Church:

30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and The Church.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Not that John and I have the perfect marriage, for there is no such thing under the sun; however, we stand on 20+ years of the closest thing to it that either of us have ever seen. We have seen other good marriages, but ours is almost supernaturally excellent. The Lord matched us up – two givers. The love and mutual respect is a part of the success. I think that we like our male and female roles, and we enjoy being male and female as God made us down to the DNA in our cells. We have also been blessed beyond measure, and our prayers have all been answered. We do not forget to ask Him to help us attain needed medical help, as well as help for others. Some say we are lucky. I don’t believe in luck; I believe in recognizing the blessings in our lives without ceasing.

Solomon was the second son of David and Bathsheba. His mother worried that his father had taught him to be a womanizer. Bathsheba’s pet name for her son is Lemuel and we see in Proverb 31 the advice she imparts to him regarding a wife – a wife worthy of a King!!

PROVERB 31
10 
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

We have witnessed in America the deliberate masculation of women by certain factions of our population, and the counter emasculation of men in that process. For every movement under the sun, there is a counter movement that occurs. Women hit their forties and wondered at their biological clocks tick, tick, ticking away, and the absence of available marriageable men. Many of these women became bitter and angry, without recognizing if they had played a part in the sad outcome . . . without asking for forgiveness for the error of their ways, and their biological clock alarms stopped ringing. Many men who turned from women, have not found the peace they were seeking. The saddest part in all of this is the effect it has had on the next two generations.

The studies of children in America is a hotbed of information. It matters not who did the study, or how scientific, there is always a group of naysayers. “Dr. Mark Regnerus is a University of Texas Sociologist who rocketed to fame – or infamy, depending on one’s views of homosexual parenting – in 2012 with the publication of his study about how well children are doing.” (4) Other studies from the LGBT crowd have proven to be “fixed” by the subjects in the study. Dr. Regnerus’ study skyrocketed because of his actual random sampling of a large study group. BUT, we can look to studies of children from broken homes, alcoholic homes, abusive home, welfare homes, and homes of any extreme element, to find that children from these homes are in an emotional pickle, just as the children in the Dr. Regnerus study.

Children need boundaries for themselves and their friends (so important), for their siblings, and for their parents – the rules of acceptable behavior – or Moral Absolutes. To find success in our lives, we need only look to our Lord and Savior, and what He tells us in the scriptures. My favorite place for Jesus advice is the book of Matthew, but they are found in all the Gospels, as well as the letters Jesus wrote to the churches in Revelation, and on every page of the Bible. The most important and widely read book since Jesus death and resurrection, is sadly not being read by all Christians. It is the only book that will help heal our Republic; and it is pivotal in American’s “Making America Great Again.” Without a return to Biblical Christianity, any attempts of restoring the Republic would be weak at best. This is where the healing must begin.

MY CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2016

down-the-street

John and I are alive and still have our child quality in good working order. hehehe Christmas is first and foremost for us to joyfully celebrate Christ being born, and knowing the message of The Cross.
It is difficult for children to appreciate the concept of salvation and the work of The Cross. We make the Christmas holiday important to our children, so that when they become older, we can share the value of salvation, and the work of the cross. They will already know, because we did it right, that Christmas is a time to teach the joys of giving, and receiving love, food, and gifts.
Merry Christmas to all of my friends, family, and acquaintances I see in person and in FB every day; and a very prosperous new year.

P.S. If someone rags on you about your Christmas tree – remind them that it is for fun, especially for the children – NO ONE worships the trees – not even close.
We worship Jesus Christ. Can I Get An Amen?

UPDATE JOHN AND JUANITA / COMING OUT OF HIDING / BEN-JAMIN!!! FREAKING FRANKLIN (Loving the Founders still.) HMMM, WE WILL CALL THIS ONE TRANSITION.

.
picture-for-3-foot-wide-canvasThis Texan has been transplanted in Ohio / the farm belt / and I am a very happy camper!
This photograph is part of our Ohio family – taken not too long ago by a professional photographer in our home. Katie – our new via son-in-law, 14-year-old, Grandgirl. Beautiful, smart, funny – thank you Lord for one with so much promise, and a new generation of Birthday slumber parties in my basement.
David and Natalie Pumpkin (lol – chances of new son-in-law, David, thinking I think their last name is Pumpkin is remote), and me and my love John. You can see for yourselves that John and I really are the Happy, Fluffy (well-fed), (short), People. I am wearing 4” heels. Please don’t tell my doctor.

Natalie and I . . . it is on our faces . . . reunited, daughter and mother. I am so proud; I am popping my buttons. Perfect? No. She doesn’t have to be with me. But she is a very amazing woman. College degreed about the time her oldest became an adult, flying further in her career ambitions than she had imagined, blame me for this food item – putting a hot meal on the table for her family almost every night, and pursuing new interests – wow. John and I are on her new interests list. She has been a huge and loving help for us. Thank you Lord for Natalie. The Lord, and Natalie get all the credit. She is the apple that didn’t fall far from the tree – and that is all I had to do with it.

John and I are each other’s care taker, and I think we both need a little help to unravel what that means going forward. This is interesting to me in that I think it may be something I will write about in the near future. I no longer have the identities I used to have: corporate whiz kid fast-tracker (innate leader and problem solver type A person LOL!!! – a type Z personality now in these senior years?), 27 years being a mother – close up and personal raising of children — identities I liked about myself. At 64, half of my identity is John (and opposite for him). Fear of losing half of one’s identity is very scary – ESPECIALLY when the love of one’s life is at stake – not to mention my best friend.

I have tackled this by creating memories every single day – and actively think about it when I pray each day about the next day.  We have learned to play each day by ear. We love our new (to us) Ohio home so much, that we have more fun at home than going out on date night.

It may have taken us a long time to fix up the deck that was ugly, but we do get the most romantic of results . . . if “Home” is romantic to you – and it is to me. This is the end of the home projects we started last November 17, 2015.

We are truly blessed beyond measure. We no longer look at days as “good days” or ” bad days”; but!!!! for us, pain, disease, etc. is what it is – and it DOES NOT get to define us – WE REMAIN THE HAPPY FLUFFY PEOPLE.

Please do pray for us, we do have some medical difficulties that are wearing us down a little. It is good that we love well; I don’t know how couples without our love get through it all. We are, and have been each other’s “care taker” in the home, and we get tired, but not beaten. To my friends, thank you for your prayers.

COMING OUT OF HIDING . . .  You would think that disease (his and mine), me going Septic and almost dying in later October, going through with the November 1st move from Texas to Ohio, BEING A SNOW VIRGIN – WOW I LOVE IT!!!, remodeling of our Ohio home with huge success, doing the front yard (wasted some $$ there), and the deck project in the back yard is why I have been mostly absent from talking to all of you out there (if there is anyone left out there looking for my words LOL!!!), but that would be a wrong assumption.

Many months ago I came back around to a topic that I have avoided for years. It is a good thing, because I have been forced to not only re-think my position, but to better understand what God has to say on the subject. It is a hard subject, and I will leave it a mystery for now – just know that it is the one that almost made me stop publishing my thoughts. I write almost every day. To bring you the new subject, I will have a formal burning of my piles and piles and piles and piles of notes – and begin new with my heart open to you and the Lord.

As soon as I tell you about Benjamin Franklin, I will close for today, and start building the bon-fire of notes in the BBQ Pit – Wish it was a cooler than 50’s night, I would just burn them in the fire place that I love. Speaking of fire places – I remembered from my childhood at my grands in NJ that fireplaces were for roasting marshmallows (until S’mores came to Texas Girl Scouts, I happily thought it a Yankee activity). I can take a long fork, put 2 Marshmallows (from my secret stash), turn the gas on, and be eating the gooeyness of them all in about 60 seconds. YUM

NOW FOR BENJAMIN . . .
“The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the Revolution.” Benjamin Franklin

You all must know by now that America has been in the clutches of the money manipulators for a long, long time. Lucky for Americans and American prosperity, two things were at play until the last 40 years or so:
1. God’s protection to this Republic that was created for God’s Glory (not going to waste time proving that again. Either you are well read and know this, or you are happy letting the money manipulators write your history for you.)
2. The Money Manipulators kept out of sight far enough to let America be the shining example on the hill. Sadly, as soon as they decided to come out into the light, and destroy America, the majority of American’s lost their faith, and belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Don’t believe me? Just turn on the television. On a side note: Satan is laughing his “buttocks” * off when he sees the young folk making the millennium old hand sign beckoning him to them. Sad, but true.

*My attempt to use a politically correct word. Why is this a better word than ass?????

Okay, the following explanation is OVER simplified for the hope of my making my point about money:
Money should be based on labor – man hours’ possible x 3 levels of population – 1. Dig the ditch level of labor; 2. Build the infrastructure of all the buildings and ditches; 3. The truly talented and CREATIVE – and I don’t mean those that can dunk a basketball – I mean those that can create a clean water system in the desert so all men have water (go R. O. Systems for Africans who are living in a place where the natural water is undrinkable!) X population of all 3. There would be a formula for how much money should be in circulation, which can be corrected daily via a computer program I could probably write, and that actually puts me in labor camp 2. above, though I would aspire to work myself into 3. above.

What you have is a bunch of paper that the Federal Reserve (a corporation that has nothing to do with our government / Congress which is supposed to be printing our money) gives to America, and charges America interest to do this! For printing paper! NO. Now days, for typing 1’s and 0’s into a computer program. For this, we paid /owe them trillions in interest over decades upon decades of charging us this interest.
This is thievery on a level so deeply wrong that those who perpetrate this system on Americans should all be thrown under the jail forever (and he, the chief instigator of this will be one day thrown into a pit of fire). If a court made the Fed give back all the interest they should never have been paid – because it was stolen under false pretenses to the American public – we, as a nation would not be in debt.

Some will say that if the Fed didn’t do what they did, we would never have been a great country. LAUGH OUT LOUD AT THAT. We are Americans. We are different. We have been exceptional up until the Fed took the mask off and I am ashamed to say – they bested Americans through trickery, and through everyone’s greed (Enron, .COMS, UNEARNED HOMES, the war on poverty that has created the most horrible never-ending poverty system the world has known, the war on drugs in which politicians and drug lords ensure we will never win . . . the coming college education loan bubble). All of those BUSTED BUBBLES? Well, Americans were tricked into them in part, and American’ s are still learning a hard lesson about greed, and the death of their faith.

. . . I bought some bushes, ground cover, and a tree for our new front yard from the biggest nursery online I could find. I bought a one-year guarantee. When the tree died, and now the bushes and ground cover are dying, I tell John – go and get our new tree and bushes, please. John reads the fine print. I am going to have to pay half price for them (I paid half price originally). So, if I am stupid enough I will buy them again for half price – NO WAY!!! John pointed out that the one-year guarantee only cost me $4.95.

AMERICA! WHEN YOU SET OUT TO GET SOMETHING FOR NOTHING – DO NOT BE SURPRISED THAT NOTHING IS WHAT YOU WILL END UP WITH. Juanita

Boy, do I feel stupid!!!! $4.95 for a one-year guarantee on hundreds of dollars’ worth of a tree, bushes, and ground cover?  Shame on me. I do know better.

Folks that think you should pay someone who flips hamburgers the same as the man who designs and builds homes, and the same as the man who saves lives, are foolish. We are seeing first hand this week what happens when you pay millions of dollars to a man who plays a game, and you pay Firemen, Policemen, and Marines a pittance in comparison. One, we need to re-check our value system. Two, we need to unpeg our dollars from the Fed, and re-peg it to the labor of Americans who work – physical labor, supporting labor, and creating labor. I worked my way up from physical labor to supporting labor faster than many folks, and I worked my butt off. My fuel was to raise my kids to be the best Americans I could muster with all my WORK, heart, prayers, and soul. Being an American was, and is a worthy thing to be for us Baby Boomers and our parents – Americans are amazing. Because of my values, my children are each equally successful, part supporting labor, and part creative labor. We better hope that the majority of Americans under the age of 45 are the same type of Americans as my children.

It didn’t happen by accident. When my son thought money was growing on trees – in his mid-teens, I arranged with my business owner a summer job for him. My son, that I love, squatted down with a jack-hammer punching holes in concrete for rebar; and he accused me of trying to kill him . . . LOUDLY FOR ALL MY BUSINESS OWNERS AND SUBORDINATES TO HEAR!!!!!!! . . . (we were all older and wiser LOL) . . . and on the day, 2 weeks in, that he received his first paycheck, he stopped crying, and started being the best jack-hammer operator there is. At the end of the summer, he bought a used Dodge truck that he loved, and we had to say NO, you cannot quit school to work. Jeeeeesh, kids – gosh I miss my little. people . . . then my young people. They have little people and young people of their own, and I am proud.
————————————-
So, I am not going to hide anymore behind the one commentary that I hated to have to write. I will publish it sometime in the next couple of weeks; for I know I must conquer this one or stop writing. Love to you all. Prayers for you all; and I do thank you for your prayers for my love and I.

END TIME PROPHECY – SIMPLE TO EXPLAIN

There have been a lot of good sermons delivered in the last few weeks, because those in political / societal control are turning the American ship further into deep destructive waters – destructive waters that most Americans are not brave enough to stand up against. Washington is a reflection of the majority in America. For truly, if millions of Americans were keeping Washington in line with God’s traditions and laws, our entire existence would change for the better almost overnight. America would be the nation she once was, when other nations worked to emulate the overall positive existence of the American people. Our government would once again tow the line of the majority of the people for fear of losing their jobs. Satan would crawl back under his familiar rock to hide for another season.  But, I can sum up the reality of all Biblical wisdom, and end time prophecy in one question:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

It is the age old pattern of Israel, and it is the pattern of Christianity, of history repeating itself every time mankind forgets who our Creator is, starts behaving as if men are gods, and forgets that we live for God’s glory. This question above is one that we each must come to terms with, and be prepared to not only live with the consequences, but are forcing our young to also live with the consequences of our individual choice.

It really is that simple to explain. I have recently been asked the age old questions that have been asked of every Christian who has studied the Bible for thousands of years:
1. Don’t all religions lead to salvation?
2. Where in Biblical history are we; isn’t the answer in Revelation?

I explain it like this. Milk Christians often go straight to reading Revelation to find answers. The answers aren’t just in one book of the Bible designed for Milk Christians. Salvation is through Jesus Christ, period. To study Revelation, you must go through every book of the entire (OT & NT) Bible to understand it – why Revelation is at the end. I encourage the masses who have not studied the Bible to do so. You will find answers to questions you didn’t even know you have. Only by studying the Bible will you receive the truth of Who actually wrote it. This is a truth that can only be obtained by your direct experience. I can tell you the truth all day long and give you fifty examples in short order to back it up – but – that will mean nothing to you. You must seek the truth to receive it.

There have been many “pre-tribulation” times throughout history. But, so far, each time, mankind turns the ship of earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory, and turns the ship away from the end times. One time, in the future, mankind will not wake up and turn the ship of all earthly existence back toward living for God’s glory. Only God knows which time that will be. For God lives outside of His creation (space/time continuum), and only He can see when that will happen.

Those of us who think of ourselves as the watchmen are absolutely saying, WOW, today does seem to be the season before the tribulation years – but, we do not know for sure. We are praying mankind wakes up one more time and strives to live for God’s glory. Yes, our nation (and most of the world) are being ruled by the Prince of Darkness – it says so in the Bible. His days are numbered. One day soon the end-time-prophecies will come true . . . or not, if mankind wakes up again. It all revolves around that one sentence – again:

Are YOU going to follow God’s traditions / laws – or man’s?

I KNOW WHO THE “P.C. POLICE” ARE, AND WHAT TO DO, AND WHY

When I was about seven years old one of my friends, who we will fictitiously name TrueBlue, told me something that would temporarily devastate me in that singular way children can fixate on a very bad secret. What TrueBlue had told me is, “My Mamma told me that your family is going to hell. While your daddy is barbequing on your driveway, he drinks beer.” Being a tender-hearted child, I went home and cried my heart out.

Even at that young age, I eventually reasoned the whole thing through, and made a little headway to my eventual discovery that there is a difference between faith and man’s religions. What triggered the beginning of me developing my faith, instead of one of man’s religions, came by surprise a few months later. I was asked to get the lettuce out of TrueBlue’s refrigerator while sandwiches were being made for our lunch. There, in the back of the large vegetable crisper, was a six pack of beer.

I now know that I had been upset over something said by the unthinking “P.C. Police.” Who knew that the “P.C. Police” was alive and well in the late fifties? In my experience it went like this: From erroneous pulpit, to a parent, to a child, and on to my young ears.

Shortly after that incident, I asked a neighbor if I could swing on their swing set that was never used. I could see how pretty their back yard was through our common fence. I was seeking a pretty place to be alone and think. This is unusual in that I was normally too shy to ask an adult pretty much anything, much less, ask for what I perceived to be a favor.

I remember swinging on that beautiful, windy day just as clear as if it were yesterday. As I was swinging I was singing what was in my heart and mind to a presence I could feel. We are to know The Lord / God in the very least through His Creation. Why I could feel this truth at such a young age, I cannot begin to tell you. In hindsight, I know that God had a plan for my life, and The Holy Spirit was with me from an early age on – long before I would completely understand. I believe that during traumatic events in my young life, I would pray – and my prayers were not only answered in the VERY long run, but I felt protection from the Holy Spirit – in the meantime – from childhood forward.

I decided to do some investigation into all different denominations of Christian churches that my friends and their parents attended. Children have very active imaginations about many things. Several years later, it seemed to me like all of these families belonged to different Christian clubs, that made them superior to me in some way. In my imagination, it went like this (since I had candidly asked my Mamma why we didn’t attend church on Sundays), “Poor girl, her father was raised Episcopal, and her mother was raised Presbyterian, so they decided to not take her to either church.” This imagined sentiment just made me dig in for more research. Erroneously, I thought they were closer to The Lord than I could ever be. None of us deserve the Grace we receive, and through much Bible study in my adult years, I came to understand that.

FAST FORWARD to the present and I am still concerned about this thing we now call the “P.C. Police.” In America, we attribute the failures of our Christian Faith and culture in very general terms to the “P.C. Police.” Faith and culture failures affect: children /schools, families / communities, community / churches, adult’s / work places, all of the above / entertainment. How many Christians talk about the need to do something about the whole “P.C. Police” that no one effectively does anything about – and now call it the “P.C. Police Culture.” Today, Americans have become accustomed to being a society of excuses to explain their failure as an individual, a family, a community, a state, and a nation to the monstrosity we are saddled with:

1. Ignore it, and live in my own little bubble, because someone else will better know how to fix our society, and do something about what our children are exposed to.
2. Participate in un-Christian activities, to get along – TO BELONG, because I am strong enough to do these small sins and not let them truly affect me . . . surely God will understand . . . after all, we are all sinners anyway.
3. Buy into the lie that everyone, but Christians, deserve the right to change our American culture, into the failed cultures that have come to America – not as immigrants – but as infiltrators.

I looked to the scriptures for help in understanding what we are dealing with. It just so happens that I am studying the book of Acts. No sooner did this question come to mind, then I read the answer. Funny how these things happen to appear exactly when I need them. There is a plan for my life and the more I study my Bible, the easier my life’s plan seems to unfold. I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe in purpose, the Gospel, and faith in my Lord, Jesus Christ.

I would like to present from The King James Version of the Holy Bible, the first 26 Verses of Acts Chapter 3 to set the groundwork in order to learn something about the “P.C. Police”. It takes 4 minutes of your life to read this scripture. I promise you will not have wasted a second. Our lives are always enriched by learning in the scriptures. I can only testify to you that it is true for me. Highlights of scripture, and words / highlights between [ ] are my doing.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee:

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And all the people [Acts 4:4 about 5,000 present] saw him walking and praising God:
And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people,

Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.

But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.

But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.

Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

After this, Israel’s elders and priests, and the Sadducees had Peter and John held. Since so many people had seen a previously extremely lame man (from birth) healed in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, they were in a quandary as to what to do to convince the people that they held the power, and wanted the business with disciples stopped. They needed for the spreading of the Gospel to be squashed – period.

Because so many had seen the miracle involving the lame man, they could not charge Peter and John with anything. They decided to beat Peter and John, and ordered / threatened them to stop spreading the Gospel.

Here we have the “P.C. Police” ordering men to lie, and forbid them to tell the gospel regarding Jesus Christ. Peter and John understood that these synagogue leaders would tell the people over and over again that there was no miracle, it was a trick of some kind. They did punish people for telling the truth. But Peter and John were men of faith that had the Holy Spirit alive in them. They continued to spread the gospel for decades, and true to the scriptures, feared not.

Peter died 33-34 years after the death of Christ. According to the early writers, he died at or about the same time with Paul, and in the Neronian persecution, A.D. 67,68. All agree that he was crucified. Origen says that Peter felt himself to be unworthy to be put to death in the same manner as his Master, and was, therefore, at his request, crucified with his head downward.

Because of who Peter was, he is a martyr. Peter promoted life, and salvation through Jesus Christ. Today, much of the world has it backwards, they declare themselves martyrs, and blow up innocent life as well as their own. They promote a culture of death.

In overwhelming majority, American Christians, because they were not true to their faith, allowed the enemy within to divide and conquer. They did not stand firm, as The Body of Christ, and say no to division, and every kind of selfish activity imaginable – at the cost of our children, the family, The Church, the schools, the community, and the Republic.

Every ‘Milk Christian and Apostate Christian were the weak link that used the words and actions as the “P. C. Police” to change our culture and our religion. Inviting all to become submissive to the idea that there is no personal responsibility to any action, and there is no right or wrong – they believe it is all subjective.

Did we, as Christians, learn to love the least among us? No, and due to the guilt the enemy within the “P.C. Police” used our guilt to elevate the least among us to high places in our courts, in our politics, in our schools, and even in our churches. We are supposed to love each other as Christ loves us. We are not supposed to lower our moral, educational, and political standards so everyone on the planet is poor and ignorant – except those evil enough to exempt themselves from the culture they push upon us.

If our “denominational religions” had been doing God’s work, they would not have diverted their congregation from the parts of the Bible that require us to be moral. If every Christian – and Americans are still claiming to be 85% Christian – would take their Bibles and their families to the local schools their children attend in their neighborhoods, and simply put on the door for the day, “The Body of Christ,” and left the man made opinionated part of denominational faith behind, can you imagine how different our faithful would be from coast to coast – loving the least among us, but elevating human activities with hearts and minds God-ward. Neighbors would again know who each other are, and be willing to help each other instead of depending on the government – which gives the government the reason to tax us severely. Legal Immigrants would be welcomed into whatever neighborhood they lived in. (There is that whole thing of obeying our laws that Americans would be able to control.) Healing our land must start at a local level, and in short order we would find those among us who are natural leaders. Being 85% of the nation, the Christian vote would once again prevail in America.

If American Christians were striving for the sustained worship of our Lord together, neighbor with neighbor, the results would be overwhelming. . . I hear you – doing what is right is not always easy, but it is always superior than doing nothing, or the wrong thing. ‘Evil needs nothing to prosper, but the inaction of good men.’ Our enemies picked up the “P.C. Police” banner from our failing culture, and used / infiltrated our own “P. C. Police” to bring us down to our failing status. Even now we look among ourselves and find no willing decent people to be our leaders. This is a reflection of the sad state of the majority.

I am sick of hearing people say that the Bible’s truth is outdated. I say not. They have not read and studied the entire Bible, and learned what was actually said, and who it was said to. Christians have made the exact same mistakes Israel did – and therefore, did not [deserve to] know their King when He was among them. Just as Israel put their man-made traditions over God’s law, so has much of Christianity in America.

[Jesus is talking here (He)]
Mark 7:5 – 23: Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. [Do you have ears?]
And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

Are you a Jesus worshipping, and Bible based Christian; or are you a Christian for show only? Being the “P.C. Police” means we are judging all we come into some kind of contact with; and are hypocrites because we do this against our Christian faith. THINKING WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUDGE in God’s place is the root of the “P.C. Police.” WE EACH NEED TO ASK OURSELVES, IF WE ARE THE “P.C. Police”? Are there so many American Christians who are the “P.C. Police”, that the enemy within – also the “P.C. Police” – are entrenched, and easily hidden among us? If the answer is yes, what are we going to do about it? It is never too late to get on our knees and ask for forgiveness, and for help. Let God see hundreds of thousands on their knees, unified by our Christian faith. Do it every day. Read and study your entire Bibles, and welcome your neighbors in, as The Body of Christ, and pray on your knees together. Turn away from those things that make us weak, and easy targets for Satan. Time is growing short, for any window of opportunity for Christian America to take back our nation, and once again enjoy the prosperity and protection that God provided. And for Heaven’s sake – never turn this ship erroneously toward the same direction as Europe did – from persecution – to persecution – why our Christian ancestors came to create America.

WHAT I BELIEVE

I have received some heat lately from friends regarding my attitude toward conservative candidates. How can I explain . . . I have been fighting the pro-American fight for decades. I do believe in the Constitution, and Conservative ideals. I have studied history, and the founders. America is one of a tiny group of nations originally created for Gods glory.

And then again . . . America is like the Civil War – fought primarily for the power of the dollar and control – disguised by the cause that captured the imaginations and heart strings from every good soul in America. The end of slavery is a noble cause. If only it were completely true. How do you explain millions of Americans working their butts off for 45+ years with little to show for it when they retire; and millions of Americans and Illegals living off of the workers. ALL of this mostly unproductive charity is government ordained, and government arranged. It has not made Americans better off, but has destroyed the fabric of what America was. American charity is defined as slavery for those who work to support their own family, and support those on the dole. It is also defined as slavery for those born into the nanny state – because the nanny state is designed to keep Americans living in poverty.

The tail has been wagging the dog in America, and we are just deceiving ourselves if we think the crap won’t hit the economic fan one day, as well as our spiritual fan. The current American economic plan, and spiritual-undoing plan, is designed to drain and destroy America.


SO, one day, in a recent year I began waking up from the American political nightmare, and I began to slowly realize there was no political party for Christians. All political parties lead to the same destination for America; and America is now speeding down the wrong path more rapidly with each year. The Holy Spirit in me said, be still – you need to understand God’s Word, and The Lord in you, before focusing on the changes in America . . . and realize it is going to take the majority of our American nation of primarily Christians, on their repentant knees, for America to change her path in history.

EVEN SO, all Christians should already know that Satan is ruling this earthly realm . . . the world is his yet, for another season. I am in God’s right hand. Satan cannot have me. But, seldom on this planet have Satan’s temptations been so prevalent, and in such a wide variety – to constantly tempt, and desensitize me and you. We live in an age different than any other before. In the privacy of our own dwelling we can have temptations on screens of many sizes.

How far has it gone? When a man who will have male DNA, as given by his Creator, for his entire life, is given a prestigious award for all of this Christian nation to see, for being brave by running around publicly acting like a woman (I read he still has a penis, and therefore classify him male, as God made him) – then I have to ask the 75% of Christians who live here in America, is this something a Christian nation would promote with national pride, and awards?

As Christians, all we can do right now is to let The Lord, by way of The Holy Spirit that is in us, help us to be the best Christian example we can be. In case you don’t realize it, I am talking to the 75% of Americans who claim to be Christian. Not perfect, for I am not, and you are not perfect . . . But, we do live by example, for others to see The Lord in us in every breathing human moment of our lives. IF that had truly described the majority of us these last many decades, we would have continued as a nation on a more righteous path. The enemy, Satan, would not own so many facets of our nation, our lives, and our children’s lives.

We are instructed to seek out Christian leaders. If we had done this diligently on local, state, and federal posts, we would not have been so severely deceived on so many fronts. We would not have a president elected that no one truly knows anything about. We would not have a castrated Congress of those elected from among a BROKEN us. We would not be entertained by such sexual and violent fornication of mind, body, and soul. We would not allow our youth to openly disrespect – their parents- their teachers – persons of authority – and THEMSELVES. We would not send our beloved family members to fight for our culture (mom, home, spouses, apple pie, and children), and allow them – the greatest troops – to fight at a deliberate deficit in the rules of war – against pure evil in purpose and deed. We are broken from coast to coast.

 

How did we lose the momentum in the noble directions of our forefathers? How did we lose our way? As a Christian Nation, we lost our faith. No one is supposed to judge anyone’s definition of Christianity. But know this. Without elevating God’s Word, we are Christians in word only. Less than ¼ of Christians today study their Bibles.

 

Without real Christian faith, belief in the gospel regarding Jesus Christ, belief in God’s Word, and God’s laws for man . . . There is no America. There are not thousands of correct interpretations of the Holy Bible.  There is only one correct meaning of the Scriptures. There is no true America if not defined by our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and held together by our Biblical Christian faith – we are just spinning our wheels with our insane and corrupt elections. We are silly in thinking that anyone voted into office from among a broken electorate, will turn the ship of America back on a righteous, Godly course.

 

Liberal judges of all political parties are writing laws all the way to the Supreme Court, instead of holding Americans accountable to our laws as written in our Constitution. Constitutional law was replaced by elusive case law that changes with the wind of political opinion. Now, we elect a president who declares his cronies above the law; and ignores existing laws.  We have millions of people in our nation that are not only here illegally, but they are coddled with money stolen from hard working Americans. America has become a lawless nation, full of liars and thieves.

 

Any child has the tools to tell you what is wrong with a system of a handful of political primaries that swindle me out of being able to vote for any good man I wanted on the presidential ballot . . . and thereby rigging elections long before this Texan ever had her vote. There is no party representing Christian Americans Period. This is the huge elephant in the room that no one wants to own up to, or talk about. We are a snivelly bunch of Christians who will not stand up for our children. As long as all the Milk Christians, the Lukewarm Christians, and the Pseudo-Christians silently agree to not talk about, and own up to the truth – Satan’s hold on this once faithful nation will not be broken.

Christian America, what say you? WHERE ARE YOU?

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Revelation 2:5 – Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

PART TWO – RUNNING IN CIRCLES – ANSWERS

I KNOW!!! What I wrote in Part One was personal, and shocking for that reason. Yes, but, this issue needs exploring to put it in a healthy perspective. It may be an almost exclusive WHITE MIDDLE CLASS issue – I don’t know for sure, and I certainly do not mean to leave anyone out of this group of Boomers due to my ignorance. First, for clarity: What you may, or may not, have perceived from Part One of my commentary is that I am very proud of my son, his soul-mate wife, and my grandchildren. How could he be my son and not be independent, immediately and passionately (inside his domain / home) family oriented, and successful at whatever he chooses to endeavor. When I do see him, he is very forthcoming with apology for his busy life, and never forgets to tell me he loves me. On many occasions over the years he has sincerely rewarded me with praise. I have a file full of Birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas Cards that say wonderful things – not just about his opinion of me – but also, about he and I. Over the last 5 years many people have contacted me privately to tell me their woes that almost mirror mine identically regarding our mostly absent Generation X children (Gen X). I believe I know of several reasons that work in conjunction with each other to have left us with the outcomes we are experiencing. We are a significant number of the Baby Boom Generation (Boomers) who are experiencing the loss of immediate and close relationship with our Gen X children.

1)   An easy one: Boomer’s Parents, and our schools were strict. When Boomers were children, we – who mostly spoke when we were spoken to – made up our minds that we would discipline our children in kinder ways, and listen to what our children had to say. OH boy!!! Speaking for me, I was an idiot. Before the last 20 years with John, I was for all practical purposes a single parent (even when previously married to another child to raise). What my children knew about manipulating me with guilt, even when they were five years old, would have shocked me if I had understood it at that time.

These Gen X children who voiced their opinions on everything under the sun have decided that the candy-xxx discipline we doled out was excessive. Right. Taking my son’s phone out of his bedroom until he brought his grades up, each and every time, caused my son to opine of how truly cruel I was. Well, always, within a week he would bring me notes from all teachers who would relay to me that his work was all turned in and his grade back up to an A or a B – depending on the subject. Discipline works.

One of the chief reasons these Gen Xers avoid us is their embarrassment when their children behave like undisciplined savages. Two minute time outs do zero to discipline children. When one of his children behaves in such manner around John and me, I can see the pure frustration and embarrassment in my son’s eyes and his body language. He knows I can read his signs, and that just compounds the whirlwind of feelings in the room. I can totally understand that his life is easier if the evidence of failed modern acceptable discipline results are not seen by me. When I explain how my young son was the happiest when his boundaries and known consequences were enforced, I also seem to lose any possible bond with my daughter-in-love.

2)   Gen X children are too busy to include their parents in their lives. Fair enough. But, we must ask why do they schedule themselves and their children 24/7/365 days a year? I don’t have a lot of answers here, but do know that their lives are so full of scheduled events, I worry that they have enough time with each other – much less time with John and I.

I remember watching my son being crushed under homework every night and most of his weekends when I made the decision to pull him out of the “gifted and talented” curriculum at school. I believe children need to be children, and that means they should let their imaginations run wild playing outside with other children. My children never met strangers, so they were really good at socializing. If you want to hear laughter in and around your home, you must let your children play outside until they smell like wet puppies.

It seems like our grandchildren’s playmates and best friends are their parents who take them to play dates, and birthday parties’ non-stop all year. On top of that they are taken to dance lessons, acrobatic lessons, piano lessons, and other kinds of lessons. When do these kids get to be in frequent free play outside developing not only social skills, but practical thinking on your feet skills?

3} Below are descriptions, an expert has given to the Boomers, and Gen X which most of our children were born into. I think it gives us some insight into the phenomenon of our children loving us from a distance.

“BOOMERS Born 1946 – 1964

An amalgam of two distinct sub-sets:  the save-the-world revolutionaries of the ‘60s, followed by the self-improvement party’ers of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.  Career-driven.  The Golden Generation in the American workplace.  Assertive.  Leaders.  Ethical.  Demanding.  Struggled with marriage and parenting.  America will now be a Boomer-led nation into the 2030’s.  This generation will never fully retire, and this is about to change America’s workplace, marketplace, and lifestyle profoundly.

GEN-X Born 1965 – 1981 – [My children were born 1973, and 1979.]

The latch-key kids grew up street-smart but isolated, often with divorced or time-starved dual-career parents.  Entrepreneurial.  Independent.  Creative.  Career “free agents”.  Feel disempowered and disengaged.  Eager to make marriage work and “be there” for their children.  Starting to chalk up some victories in life.  X’ers are rising.  They’ll lead America in the 2030’s and 2040’s.  They will give our nation excellent “idea leadership” but will need training to become good “people leaders”.

“FIRST-WAVE MILLENNIALS Born:  1982 – 1996 (and still coming!)” You can go find this group if you are interested. They are our grandchildren, and some late Boomer children – but, not the Boomer children we are thinking about in this commentary.

The first thing I noticed is that the “expert” wrote something negative about the Gen X childhood because of their parents, and nothing about Boomer parents. I could write a book on how dysfunctional most Boomer homes were. If they were not actually divorcing, they were constantly threatening to. What sticks out most for me, is that because Boomer parents experienced the Depression as children, and WWII in their teen and young adult lives, they often lived through us – and even forcing us to be whom they wished they could have been as teens and young adults. It is hard to measure up to someone else’s dream. But, I digress . . . we are trying to understand why so many Gen X children have little time for their Boomer parents.

I believe that many Gen Xers hold some kind of a dual loving admiration and jealousy of who we Boomers were, and the world we lived in . . . let us look again at pieces of the Boomer description:

“Career-driven”

We Boomers were “fast trackers” – “movers and shakers” – well read – over educated – self-educated – an amazing society of engaged and successful people. We lived the American dream. White and Blue collar workers came together to achieve the most amazing advances in every industry on the planet. We enjoyed the last decades of true Capitalism, which made the Middle Class grow by leaps and bounds. If this was not Gen X parents, they felt like they were cheated. If it was their parents, they also felt cheated because we worked 55 hour work weeks to get ahead. At the time, we were determined to give our kids any advantage possible to insure their futures were as bright, or brighter than ours.

Somehow, many Gen Xers did not appreciate the link between the Middle Class lifestyle they enjoyed, and how hard we Boomers worked. It also seems probable that when Gen Xers size up todays often negative atmosphere for similar levels of endeavor, they have given up without showing true American Culture at its best, by peacefully fighting back to make the ultimate checks and balances of our government work, and answerable to We The People.

Many Boomers realized that the link between home, food, clothes, schools, entertainment, and the massive man/hours we worked to achieve the best we were capable of providing, was not translating to the values our children should have received by the process. Like many, determined to make them understand, I sent my Gen X teenagers out into the world to earn money after school, and summers.

I remember the first week my teen son worked on a concrete crew; a job I had attained for him. He railed against me for two weeks; claiming I was trying to kill him via jackhammer death in the crouched position to make holes in concrete for rebar. At the end of his second week, he received his first paycheck – and Katie Bar the Door!!!!!! This is undoubtedly the planted seed of why he works so hard and owns his own business. (I really need a smiley face here!) At the end of that summer he wanted to keep working and earning money, and screw school. Not a chance my genius son would be allowed to drop out!

My son received that job because of my connections. Jobs for teenagers in America was a part of our heritage. Due to open borders, the summer and after school jobs that should have been there for our teenaged Gen Xers, to build their young character on, went to adult illegal aliens. When they graduated and entered the workforce, not only did many have no experience to put on their resumes, but the national economic failures left few jobs for them to have. Even those who attained degrees were working for a fraction of what they dreamed, for so long, they would be earning.

Gen Xers by the thousands compared their lives to their parents, and it became easier to disconnect from us than to feel they had failed to keep their place among the Middle Class they were raised in.

Here is where Boomers can visualize good reason for resentment: The day of honorable Capitalism is gone. What our Gen Xers are experiencing is a government hostile to the small and medium business. Endless laws & regulations steal the fruits of their labor. Laws like Obamacare are designed to put a burden on the small and medium business that it cannot bear. What our Gen Xers are dealing with is CRONY Capitalism, whereby large international corporations and our own out of control government are in cahoots to destroy the Middle Class.

Giving away our Gen Xers industries, jobs, and tax dollars to illegal immigrants, and our enemies in foreign countries has done nothing to bring up the standards of any other country, and sold out our American Culture and Heritage. We Boomers understand that the Gen Xers blame us. What the Gen Xers do not understand is that until the last two decades, the deceptions of our government, the undermining of our schools, and the trashing of our economy was done covertly. The last two decades are on both the Boomer and the Gen Xers for allowing it to happen. Sadly, our Gen X children do not have the necessary tools to do a peaceful economic and government re-set . . . they scarcely understand what our American heritage / culture is, therefore they blame their Boomer parents for their “bad luck.”
4)  Major differences in the Boomers and our Gen X children which has caused division over time:

–     Fear. Boomers experienced some levels of fear in their young lives regarding assassinations of leaders, Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, and Vietnam. This pales in comparison to a long list of major events our Gen X children have experienced in their young lives moving forward to the present day: being desensitized by the sex and violence on the big and little screen, 9/11, crazy dictators obtaining Nukes, the roller coaster economy, EMP threats, trying to determine why there is government insistence on a debunked Global Warming – and all the business smothering regulations created because of it, terrorist threats including biological warfare, never ending wars and rumors of wars, explosive economy with constant threats of a dollar collapse.

–     Faith. Boomers were raised in an atmosphere of Christian principles and values, and a strong family unit. Even if Boomers were not actively attending church, or even Christian, society’s principles and values was the choice of America. 93% of Americans were Christian when I graduated high school in 1970. Of course there were criminals, because we are flawed humans. Most Christians in the 60’s considered themselves “born again,” gospel believing, Christians who were positively changed on the day they accepted the Lord into their lives.

The Christianity of today must largely be the apostate kind with weak principles and values, because we have millions of secularists telling us that evil or bad is just as valid for living as those principles and values that I have carried with me from my childhood forward. Today 78% of Americans are “Christians.” They do not like the crime levels, and ignored American Christian principles and values any more than I do, but they are willing to say your god and my God are the same god, and “whatever” when you try to tie them down on living in a Christian America. Just one quick example, in a sea of examples we could live by . . . we would have to throw out 95% of our television and movie content to bring our lives in line with Christian principles and values.

Due to my upbringing, Boomers expected to be instrumental in our children having a better life than we did. Due to my son’s upbringing, he expects to be instrumental in his children having a better life.
In the long run, and looking at the rule, and not the exception, our expectations will not be met, and more so for my dear grandchildren.

I do not have all of the answers as to why so many of our Gen Xers have distanced themselves from parents they love and respect. The several reasons above are part of the phenomenon. I have read that America has twice turned around inside of six months back to the Lord, and Christian principles and values. Is it possible for this to happen when so many are just making it through each day the best they can, and isolating those from their lives that may be able to help them more spiritually than the apostate church / secular church that is sweeping up our Gen Xers – if they even bother with church at all.

Many, many Boomers have abandoned our churches, recognizing them for the changed entities they are in the process of becoming. THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST. There should never have been division, upon division, upon division of The Christian Church. Along with these divisions – departing from our foundational Christian teachings for man-made denominational religions – departing from the worship in Jewish homes in the early church for man-made cathedrals and statues with so much money it could have fed the world over and over for decades.

My Mother’s Day card from my son, “Mom, I’ve been thinking of all the great memories from being your son! Thank you for all the fun and love I experienced through my life because of you!!” This doesn’t sound like a Gen X son who neglects his relationship with his mother. It is like my Gen Xer is away at some insane camp that Boomers are not allowed into. They know what we would say and do. The “wisdom of grandparents” is not something these Gen Xers are willing to allow into their lives, and their children’s lives. It would not be convenient to the image they have of themselves, when we are near and dear.

As I stated in Part One, I am always open to any ideas you have for solving this heart wrenching problem. How do we bring our Gen Xers back into our lives, and the whole country back to the Lord? It is true that all of the above is almost mind numbing when you consider it all together, but each issue needs to be reconciled before there is unity in our families. There is so much division in our land that is described as political, racial, ethical, etc. etc. etc. I know that our willingness to live with these political issues, without calling the leaders out for lying about every division they have caused, has left the nation in sad repair. Perhaps if we could solve the divisions between generations first, we could then tackle the rest of it together.

YOU WANT TO BE AGGRAVATED AT SOMEONE?

I am working on a “From The Heart” series, and had not intended to post until I finished it. Today I saw some complaining about life, unions, and money, and just couldn’t resist THIS COMMENT:
Do you want to be aggravated at someone?
UNIONS are INTERNATIONAL, and being International have sold your jobs out of the country with the intention of bringing your salaries and benefits in line with the rest of the world – so it is their game – the Union and the International Business (ie. Crony Capitalism) all over the globe where they pocket the lions share.
IN CAHOOTS with government CAREER POLITICIANS who pass the laws and write the regulations (that no citizen actually votes for) that make them rich over and under the table.
BUST THE UNION –
BUST THE CAREER POLITICIAN – (with term limits for even dog catcher)
Who play the ignorant Americans like a fine fiddle, and have stolen their wealth
through the Unions, through the phony bubbles, through Crony Capitalism, through the propped up Stock Market.
EDUCATE YOURSELF AND PEACEFULLY RETURN CONTROL TO THE PEOPLE,
FIND OUT what real Capitalism is and strive for that,
AND stop believing every junk science that you are fed like global warming.
A handful of people have made massive fortunes on the junk science!
(DUH! The new age scientist will sell his soul for grants, and personal wealth. The ones who rise to the top are the soul sellers – yours and theirs.)
Our adult kids are pedaling so hard to keep up, they may not figure it out until they are all in the poor house.
MOST OF Our adult kids are without true faith – AND in the apostate church. The Mega Churches that tell them their sins are okay, and here are seven steps to being rich through faith . . . while the Mega Church becomes rich . . . well, we cannot say we weren’t warned. We were told to not be deceived.
