Thanksgiving not PC?

Its that time of year again.

Before the ACLU starts protecting us from nativity scenes, and politically correct counsels save us from theocratic encroachments like red and green lights….we have Thanksgiving.

The War on Thanksgiving
StopTheACLU
Many people think that this is a time for sharing, family and happiness. However, the Seattle Public School Staff are being informed that this is a myth: Instead, Thanksgiving should be used as a time of race guilt, America hating, and mourning.

So sorry Libs, I’m fresh out of self hatred.

Aint it simply stunningly remarkable how no other “native people” were ever oppressed anywhere on this green earth while conquering nations were forming, other than right here on the North American continent. Shame on us. thanksgivingopia.gif

Guess what peeps.
There are more Indians living within current US boundries now than ever there during Columbus’s time.

As I have posted before..the Indians had been at war with one another long before outside feet ever reached what became American shores.

But if the Libs insist on sellin tickets to the “Grievance Theater” , let’s just keep an honest score shall we.
Not only did Indians kill white ,black, and yellow men, they killed their own red skinned people way before they laid eyes on whitey.

Of course offering the gift called “tobacco” to the white settlers, has become the gift that keeps on giving………Cancer, that is.

Truth:
The European conquest just like all conquests throughout history, was brutal, vicious and even barbaric.

Does it behoove us to be aware of the ghastly manner in which our forefathers treated some of the indigenous peoples following their conquest? You bet.

It can be studied and taught so as to inculcate moral values. Indeed.

In spite of this, our modern celebration of Thanksgiving has virtually nothing to do with any of the above. Nothing, nada, zip.

While the Libs just love to portray the Indians as a bead making, pipe smoking peaceful loving people who never comitted a wrong deed , until Europeans came here to America, …that remains a revisionist PC distorted view of history.

Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks.
Not to commemorate the atrocities committed by White Europeans.

Hence it is not called : Atrocity-Giving Day.

Heck. Why don’t we allow the Leftist haters to obliterate everything that makes us Americans. thanksgivingk2.gif

Yes. It was a War..and our culture won.
The indigenous people lost.

We can not change that reality.

However, the intention of our precious “Thanksgiving Holiday” signed into law is to honor the historical event and to allow us, the citizens to give thanks.

To our deity of choice, to our loved ones, for our freedoms and myriad of blessings, to our Troops, and for all the bounties we receive as a Nation as well as individually at the end of the harvest season.

Speaking of atrocities………….
..Do the skools teach the endless massacres and blood-letting still being committed by Muzlims every day?

Naw…but don’t sweat it Libs…….the sooner you allow the USA to become a calip-HATE, the sooner there will be no more traditional American Holidays to demolish eh.

And now …………..

Raising a Generation of Spoiled Brats

Monday, November 9th, 2015


The latest…

A restaurant in the Montrose area is getting a lot of attention lately, not because of the food but because of a “rule card” it’s handing out to parents.

Ana Beaven and Charlie McDaniel are the couple behind the restaurant called “Cuchara,” which means “spoon” in Spanish.

They’ve invested three years into their Mexican restaurant, which is in the heart of Montrose. Most of the art is from Mexico.

“They are almost impossible to replace,” said Beaven.

They open their doors to everyone but there is one warning to parents.

“Just take responsibility for your kids,” said McDaniel.

The couple said after many incidents at the restaurant they decided to print the “rules card” and hand them out to parents.

“(During one incident) the child jumped on top of the chair and then started (climbing) up a wall,” said Beaven. “(During another incident a) child took a quarter and began marking, doing tick-tac-toe.”

That last incident was the last straw, said Beaven. The child caused about $1,500 worth of damage.

Montrose restaurant hands out children’s behavior ‘rule cards’ to parents
(Tip o’ the hat to the Zispter)

And lest we forget this goodie….

A backlash has begun against the all-must-have-prizes culture that has produced children used to getting their own way..
Our little emperors: does worrying do more harm than good?

As the mother of two young daughters,… is used to doling out praise for almost everything they do. Even she was taken aback, however, when her younger daughter, Rachel, now 5, arrived home from nursery clutching a certificate for “sitting nicely on the carpet”.

“It made me wonder what she was doing the rest of the time,” …. “I thought it was a bit over the top rewarding her for something so routine. But it’s part of a whole culture of stickers and smiley faces and ‘celebration assemblies’.”

The received wisdom on child-rearing says nothing should be allowed to damage a child’s sense of self-worth: just last week the Football Association (FA) decided to ban teams including children under eight from publishing their results, for fear of putting the kids under too much pressure if they lost a match.
It is becoming a worldwide trend. A recent production of Snow White at a primary school in Japan featured 25 Snow Whites, no dwarfs and no wicked witch, as parents objected to one child being picked out for the title role. In Sweden a boy was prevented from handing out invitations to his birthday party at school because he was “discriminating” against the two classmates he did not invite.

“Too many kids … are growing up without boundaries, without discipline and without the family structures they need,” he said. “We should bring back discipline and the idea of punishment.”

FYI. This amazing country of ours was built on strength and honor, not touchy feely dimwits who allow everyone to “win”, while eliminating all healthy competition and discipline.

The joy of witnessing these little 4 and 5 year old “rock stars” with their parents fawning over their every move..Uh huh… Asking children what they want for dinner, what they choose to wear, how they “feel” every 15 seconds.

Guess what folks?
Everyone is NOT always a winner.

Common sense, responsibilty for oneself, respect for authority and decency have all been deep sixed in favor of “feeling good alla time.”

These touchy feely kids grow up not giving a fig for anyone but their sorry, self centered selves.
As adults, they remain coddled and over-indulged just as much as children.

Our Pop Idol culture offers “prizes” for every job well done.
What does our culture value? Pushiness, self-centeredness and attention-seeking behaviors seem to be prized far above talent and discipline for men. Looks, thinness, and sexualizing themselves is what is prized for women.

Giving kids a medal for helping tidy his desk or everytime he manages to “sit still”?


How many more rewards, stickers, smiley faces,and dang star charts do these children have to get before they realize this behavior should be expected, not rewarded?

Howzabout we teach our kids to be independent, allow them to fail and actually learn from it. Hmmmm.

To be polite and courteous , yes, and oooh… even competitive!
They will run circles around the little snowflakes who run to mommy (and eventually to government), to complain about every challenge life throws at them.

Between you and me, a huge part of this fiasco has been generated (out of guilt),by women who work long hours outside of the home, spend little time with their children, and have “nannies” do what “mommy” ideally should be doing.
But despite their absentee mothering…………
Their children must be seen by all as a pinnacle of their achievements in life.

You can choose to be your child’s friend, or your child’s parent.


Being buddies may is easier, but only the latter is really raising a child.

The “friendship” part kicks in…when they are much older…and IF, you actually raised them.
