There is a Story afoot . . .



A story has attacked me . . . not sure where it's from, but I have been posting chapters as they come out of my fingers. Yes, I am still posting on firearms training and my new topic of basic prepping - all links are to the right of the blog, newest posts first on the lists. Feel free to ignore the story posts - they usually start with a chapter number. But, feel free to read the story as well and comment on it - I like how it's turning out so far! Links to the various chapters are at the right under . . .

Commentary . . . Do your job . . .


So . . . how do we fix “this” . . . 5 cops dead, 6 wounded . . . just in Dallas.  LEO murders up 44% this year.  A nation being pushed to the brink of a race war helped along by a President who slanders police officers, decries “white privilege”, hammers that blacks are being targeted simply because they are black.  And all of us sitting here, knowing more is coming . . . watching BLM members throwing bottles, rocks and bricks at police officers, reading the call of the New Black Panthers to “kill pigs” . . . . how do we fix “this” . . .

This may be hard for some to hear, but I believe the answer can be summed up in three words . . . DO. YOUR. JOB. 

Cops

In light of the past few days, in light of the words of our President, in light of the words of Mrs. Clinton, in light of the words of the BLM crowd and the New Black Panthers crowd, of the Congressional Black Caucus, of the Jessy Jackson’s of the world . . . it’s a hell of a lot to ask of you.  Yet, the request must be made . . . do your job.

We, as a nation, need you to put on your duty gear and go to work each and every day.  You’re that “thin blue line” that is our last resort to keep the wheels “on”.  If you quit, the wheels well and truly come off . . . and that will not end well for any of us.  I can only imagine the temptation to walk away . . . to slow your response when called . . . Those of us who have never warn an officer’s gear, never responded to the call of an active shooter or armed robbery or armed assault have no way of knowing the life you have chosen to lead.  Thank you for your choice . . . we are all safer for your efforts.

And again, the request must be made . . . do your job, please.

Men

Do your job . . . be a man!

Become educated, get a job . . . or volunteer until you find a job.

A “baby daddy” is NOT being a man . . . it’s being an irresponsible asshole and placing a tremendous burden on a woman who really needs you to man-up!!  If you’re not ready to become a father – take all proper precautions, or simply choose not to have sex.  It is NOT the woman’s responsibility to not get pregnant . . . it’s yours as well.

It should be a simple thing . . . but, don’t be a criminal – in any way, shape or form.  Don’t rob, cheat or kill.  Don’t use or sell drugs.  Use a firearm to defend your family, and not to aid in a crime.

Be a father . . . a real, honest to god father.  Be a good example, demand excellence, love your kids, love your wife, protect them, provide for them, lead them.

Go to church . . . have God in your life and in your home.  Understand that your family is His gift to you . . . and you are His gift to them.  Bring your children up to understand His teachings.

Women

Do your job . . . be a woman!

Become educated, get a job . . . or volunteer until you find a job.  And yes . . . “housekeeper”, “stay at home mom” or any other similar description of a woman who takes care of her home and family . . . is a full time job, and then some.

A child is not a ticket to a bigger welfare check . . . they’re a valuable human being.  Know the difference.  If you’re not ready to be called “mommy” . . . then take all precautions to insure you do not become pregnant.  Including the liberal use of the word “NO!”. 

As with a man . . . it should be a simple thing to not become a criminal – in any way, shape or form.  Don’t rob, cheat or kill.  Don’t use or sell drugs.  Use a firearm to defend your family and not to aid in a crime.

Be a mother . . . a real, honest to god mother.  Be a good example, demand excellence, love your kids, love your husband, protect them, work with them, support them, lead them.

Go to church . . . have God in your life and in your home.  Understand that your family is His gift to you . . . and you are His gift to them.  Bring your children up to understand His teachings.

Family

Do your job . . . be a family!

Life is tough, the challenges many.  The salvation to this is the “family”.  In my day it was defined as a “nuclear family” – mother, father and children . . . with grandparents thrown in if we were all lucky.  To me, this is still the goal – whole, solid, complete nuclear families.  For many, that’s not the case.  For men unwilling to be men . . . for men that abandon their child’s mother and their children . . . they leave behind a stress filled life for the woman and her children.  And yet, even here, we see families step up, do the hard work and “do the job” of raising good, well-educated citizens.

Conversely, we see single fathers, abandon by their wives and raising good, well-educated children.  In both these cases, it is harder?  Sure . . . but impossible – not even close.

For the ideal situation, a full on nuclear family . . . do your job.  Be loving of each other, demand excellence from each other, be forgiving, be a good role model. 

Go to church . . . have God in your life and in your home.  Understand that your family is His gift to you . . . and you are His gift to them.  Bring your children up to understand His teachings.

It is here . . . right here . . . where I personally believe our nation went off the tracks.  When the idea of family became a throw-away idea.  When fathers morphed into “baby daddies” and mothers began to look at their children as a paycheck . . . we lost our way.

The solution is not to be found is a group like Black Lives Matter . . . or White Lives Matter . . . or Hispanic Lives Matter . . . or Chinese Lives Matter . . . or German Lives Matter . . . or the local, state or federal government . . . the solution is closer . . . much, much, much closer to “home” . . .

It’s not to be found in legislation, in federal police forces, honestly it’s not to be found in schools or churches.

The answer is not “out there” . . . it’s “in here” . . .

Do Your Job!!!!!

Be a Man . . . Be a Woman . . . Be a family . . .

And then . . . and only then . . . will we begin to right this ship and change our course . . .

  3. Pipe dreams. The Liberals have destroyed the black family, for the most part.

    Ain't never gonna happen. Not until welfare is reformed, and that will lead to terrible civil unrest.

    So forget about it, ain't never gonna happen.

  4. Sadly, I've got to agree with LL... It's past the point of anyone taking responsibility. As long as the freebies are out there, it will continue until it is stopped by force.
