    1. Would that this were true.... Please permit me:

      I have a lovely nephew who is now caught up in the LGBT+ and college (going nowhere) lifestyle and he would rather believe otherwise, and quite vocally too. According to 'them' Yes, climate change is real! Yes, he and all of his other pals are sexually oppressed (pause for melodramatic moment and a fresh coat of nail varnish)! Yes, all gun owners only want to kill ME!!!!!! Friends, sometimes it is too much for us! I ask my brother - why are you paying $60K a year for this rubbish? He says he has no choice because of other family issues. When did all of this happen? (disgusted shake of head and shrug of arms...)

      Ladies and Gentlemen, that is bondage, pure and simple. The Bible points this out. It is only a different kind of slavery. We might as well be in bondage to the Egyptians or Romans. It is all the same. Just a different kind of perversion. God help us!

      * Very soon now, God will simply cease to bless us and the curse of Sodom and Gomorrah will be clear to everyone. Oh dear, I just want to go about my daily life and pick my garlic and go to work and earn enough to pay the bills and not offend too many people. 8-(

    2. Janet, thank you for sharing. It is a very sad situation. I’m sure your nephew is in your prayers.

      Yes, the US is a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah. The people have become wicked. The government thrives on deceit and shedding of innocent blood, much like Satan. Maybe God has already passed judgement on America. He does have a habit of giving people the government they deserve.

  2. Snowflake children, helicopter parents, teacup dogs, participation trophies - There's just a whole lot of wrong thinking going on here.

    This is why the future of fast food will have a Mac restaurant staffed by people in their mid-thirties with nothing less than a masters degree. Of course it will take longer to re-train the brainwashed to wear a restaurant uniform and to comfort their little hearts on why the cow had to die to make the tasty burger...

    By the time I was 18 I had a number of scars and callous from playing and working outside. Life is hard and by the point of adulthood, everyone should have some scars - Outside and some inside too. There's your degree, on your hands and body.

  3. I'm reminded of an awesome quote by Patrice, "Children are the currency of tyrants". Government schools have produced millions of good little Nazis. Their purposes are now obvious.

    1. I am a teacher in a public school. It saddens me to read or hear comments like this. Please don't lump us all in the same group. I'm guessing you wouldn't like that done to you. We're not all bad. Some of us actually teach, and our kids (students) learn. My faculty and staff dinners/potlucks begin with prayer. I work with wonderful, Christian men and women. I teach my kids valuable skills. I use a cross-curricular approach where we garden, cook, care for animals, discuss firearm safety, etc. We've even taught archery in our P. E. classes. The kids love the freedom they have in choosing the books we read. (They love books about pioneer life and caring for animals.) My kids come to me with a variety of abilities and parental involvement. I teach all of them. By the way, the teachers in my school haven't had a raise for several years. (We've quit counting.) I love my job. I don't love being criticized by people who've never been in my classroom.

    2. Prepared Grammy, you have provided no evidence to counter my statements. Emotions do not trump truth. I stand by my statements.

    3. I stand by mine also. If you knew me, you would know the truth behind my little, country school. I think you and I would actually be good friends.

    4. Granny you know what you do Montana Guy does not. If you are teaching students to look at facts and skim off the emotion you are good. DEAL WITH IT. I teach voc tech in a "not" PC area. I do the best I can without getting into too much trouble. I know success when a top student tells me he hears one thing from me - and I tell him to research - and the opposite from across campus - and he is told that is all he needs to know. The student says that believes me. I am getting through. Don't be a snowflake yourself because MG doesn't know you. I am quite sure he would agree with me, but can't blame him for the skepticism. Deal with it. I wouldn't take it personally. Natokadn

  5. I am a teacher in a public school. (Don't crucify me.) I get a new group of snowflakes each year. I had one parent upset with me that I didn't make the other kids do what her child wanted. She thought her daughter should get to play with anything she wanted. I was supposed to make other kids get off of playground equipment and give it to the little girl.) The mom said, "She's our little princess. She's the only little girl born into her dad's family in generations, and she's the only little girl in my family. We give her whatever she wants. She's our little princess." This poor child had a difficult time. She had never been told she was "the same amount of special as everyone else in the class. No more. No less." That's what I told my students.
    I feel bad for kids like that. They will fail in life. I don't know of anyone who wants employees like that. As a matter of fact, I don't know anyone who wants a friend like that.

  6. I grew up in the South. Our way of speaking is just 1 micro aggression after another. When these rosebuds start working and they find out that they are there to help the company make a profit, not to wait for the company to cater to them, they're not going to be equipped to make it. When you've been raised by family and academia to be the center of a false world it's tough to suddenly find out you're only as good as "What have you accomplished lately?"

  7. One wonders how these precious little flowers are going to be up to the task of rebuilding society. I guess they're going to stage protests until someone does it for them??

    Newsflash kids: NATURE DOESN'T CARE.

    Dear God, I hope I'm raising my kids better than this...
