FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY!!! Hey there friends and digital neighbors! No caps - maybe less typos??? Don't count on it. Reading Padre-ese has become an artform for some of you early posters.
Community - The children are our future. I have heard that since I was a child. While I was child the public school education I received cultivated a love and respect for the society I was inheriting. It wasn't perfect, but it was steadily improving, even in a little backwater hole like Elsberry and much of the remnant bigotry of the 1970's. Elsberry had its mix of blacks and whites, and the black probably made up about 8% of the school. The little town had even less Mexicans, who were treated with suspicion for "stealing jobs" which oddly neither the whites or blacks wanted to do in the hot sun at the local garden nursery, but stealing none the less. Even with those challenges, you would often see all three complexions of humanity together at different gatherings, not all hunky dory, but better than the race-hustlers and community dividers would have you think.
The inter-webs make me think our current offering from public education and "higher" education is double-crap pudding. I tend to believe much of what I have read about its declining state in the last 25 years. Once again the cabal of the Enemedia, Landfill Academia, Brain-eating Entertainment, the Euro-phobes and Misandry apostles and the Cult of Big Tech have taken the double-crap pudding and spread across a sandwich to poison the minds of our children. I hope we can reclaim them, restore common sense, personal responsibility, freedom from cultist group-think that forbids questions, the world view that groups people into categories of grievance and privilege and a whole host of other attitudes that are lethal to communal growth and prosperity.
Today's quote - hopeful or frightful. I guess it all depends on what really has shaped the minds and hearts of our children. The Department of Indoctrination, I mean "Education", has worked its evil since the the 80's, I hope it can be reversed or our children can be rescued from it. Happy Friday Friends! There are many oasis of hope out there in the real world, helping others find them is so important to restoring our communities and nation.
Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
It used to be the thing talked about 20 years ago, do we now embrace it?
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you. Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
