Seventeen Pregnant Girls in Massachusetts

Art Prints

How did we get to the point in this country and world where 17 girls from the same school can get pregnant at the same time and no one is outraged?

Does anyone seriously believe that there was no pact as they are now saying, and the school tries to make us believe?

How can something like that now be encouraged by our media and society?

An appearance on a national morning TV show, condoning these actions, what is that all about?

Day care centers in the schools and passing out condoms at school, what did these officials think was going to happen?

These girls were giving each other high fives, they won’t be giving each other high fives a year from now when their hands are filled with a dirty diaper.

They were taking pregnancy test and disappointed when they weren’t pregnant.

One of them got pregnant by a homeless man.

You can blame the parents, the school, society, whatever and true the way things are today that all plays a  part, but the ultimate blame comes down to the individual.

Now I’m sure the rest of us, (the taxpayer) will get to pay for these so called mistakes.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Democrats, Party of Minorities?

Information relayed from Wikipedia

After reconstruction,
white-elite Democrats wrestled for power until they regained it in
1877, partly through violent paramilitary tactics targeting freedmen
and allies to reduce their voting. From 1885 to 1889, the state
legislature passed statutes with provisions to reduce voting by blacks
and poor whites, which had threatened white Democratic power with a
populist coalition. As these groups were stripped from voter rolls,
white Democrats established power in a one-party state, as happened
across the South. In 1900 African Americans comprised 44% of the
state’s population, the same proportion as before the Civil War, but
they were effectively disfranchised. From 1877 to 1948, Florida voted
for the Democratic candidate for president in every election except for
the 1928 election.

In response to segregation, disfranchisement and agricultural
depression, many African Americans migrated from Florida to northern
cities in the Great Migration,
in waves from 1910-1940, and again starting in the later 1940s. They
moved for jobs, better education for their children and the chance to
vote and participate in society. Given migration of other groups into
Florida (as noted in other sections of this article), by 1960 the
proportion of African Americans in the state had declined to 18%.

From 1952 through 2004, despite having a majority of registered
Democrats, the state voted for the Republican presidential candidate in
every election except for the 1964, 1976, and 1996 elections. The first post-reconstruction Republican congressional representative was elected in 1954. The state’s first post-reconstruction Republican senator was elected in 1968, two years after the first post-reconstruction Republican governor.

After all this and the 2000 Florida elections when the Democrats had so many problems voting, (the only districts that were contested were Democratic districts), millions were spent educating voters on how to vote, The rest of the state had no problem!)
They tried to blame Republicans, they tried to keep the overseas military, (the very people who protect our Freedoms) from voting, the only reason being was that the military generally votes conservative.

The Civil Rights act of the mid 60s would have never been passed if it hadn’t been for Republicans, the southern Democrats would have never voted for it.
They continually play the race card, and the victim card, they want to keep as many people under their thumb and control as possible. People that are dependent on government for a paycheck are going to support whatever handout they are offered.

When you really do some research, one finds they don’t really look after minorities and the downtrodden, they just want to make victims of them, keep them dependent on the government. They do nothing to lift anyone up to make them self sufficient. The message they portray is one of negativity and dependence.

 Self sufficiency come from with-in, not some government agency.

Our Founding Father’s Thoughts!

I have often wondered what our founding fathers would have thought about our obsession with political correctness when some think that God should never be mentioned in the political arena.

The following article is reprinted from The Double Eagle:

They (the founding fathers), left us with numerous warnings about what would happen if we violated the principles that they had put in place. Our forefathers admonished us to continue to seek God’s direction in the affairs of our nation. They warned us that to do otherwise would bring confusion, division, and doom our country.

Our founding fathers believed that a constitutional government was inadequate to control an immoral people. They warned that a nations morality was conditional on its citizens acknowledging God and submitting to his principles. To do
otherwise would result in a divided nation that would experience a deteriorating political prosperity , leading ultimately to the national denial of God’s headship and authority. This final act would bring
God’s judgment on America and her people.

Consider the following warnings from our founding fathers:

Thomas Jefferson:” And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

George Washington: “And let us indulge with caution the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle.”

James Madison: ” We’ve staked the whole future of American civilization not on the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future.. upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandants of God. The future and success of America is not in this constitution, but in the laws of
God upon which this constitution is founded.”

John Adams ” Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Clearly, our nation’s heritage is deeply rooted in religious principles. This was at the core of our founding father’s beliefs. Our forefathers took God’s Word seriously and they established a nation founded on biblical principles that publicly acknowledge God’s headship and providential protection.

These thoughts should give you something to consider during this election year.

This should leave little doubt as to the place God has in our country!

Snow in Florida

Being so far south, snow in Florida is rare, during the Great Blizzard of 1899 is the only time the temperature in the state is known to  have fallen below zero degrees F.

On January 19, 1977 , while the rest of the nation shivered in extreme cold conditions,the most widespread snowfall in Florida occurred. Snow fell over most of the state and as far south as Homestead, which is south of Miami, snow flurries were seen on Miami Beach, the only time in recorded history.

Snow was observed in the Tampa , Sarasota area in December of 1989, and a hard freeze in 2003 brought “ocean effect” snow flurries to the Atlantic coast as far south as Cape Canaveral.

One of the most damaging blizzards occurred in 1993, when blizzard conditions hit in the panhandle and heavy rains and tornadoes beset the rest of the state. The storm was thought to have a similar composition as a  hurricane and even brought storm surges of six feet or more to regions of the Gulf Coast.

El Morro the Ultimate Defense

Art Prints

El Morro
This massive fortification “Castillo de San Felipe Del Morro” means “Castle of St. Philip of the Headland.” Named for the patron Saint of Spain’s King Philip 11. It is the oldest of two great forts that anchored the sea and landward defenses of San Juan.

The second fort San Cristobal which lies just southeast of here was the primary defense from land.
The fort construction began in 1539 with the building of a round tower made of stone and resembling the chess piece known as a “rook“.El Morro slowly evolved to it’s present shape from 1539 until 1786. Approaching El Morro from the land side , one can’t help but notice how low to the ground it is constructed, this was done to offer as small a target as possible to attacking forces.
That fact , along with the moat made it extremely difficult to scale the walls of the fort.
El Morro was the first line of defense for San Juan, batteries of cannon on four of six levels were deadly deterrents to enemy warships.
The sixth level of guns pointed landward to protect the fort from attack by land.  A wood drawbridge spanned the moat and beyond that was a cleared plain so that attacking forces would have no cover.All the gunpowder was hidden underground so as to prevent the invaders from blowing up the ammunition.
The fort was an important line of defense for several hundred years as it protected Puerto Rico from invasions from the French, English, pirates and others until the Spanish-American War when possession was given to the United States following Spain’s defeat in that war. after which time it was an important line of defense for protecting the Panama Canal in World War 1 and 2.
Today, The San Juan National Historic Site is managed by The National Park Service. These weathered  battlements, so important in protecting Puerto Rico from enemy occupation, are important landmarks in the historical and cultural heritage of not only the island but the whole Western Hemisphere.

The Purpose of this Blog

I have titled this blog “Uncommoncommonsense”, it seems that in today’s world, so much is done and said not only by politicians but by the rest of us as well, that makes no sense whatsoever. Things that would have been unheard of and outlandish just a few years ago, are now accepted as truth and normal.

People will say and do anything to get elected, make more money, or whatever else it is they want in life.

The truth didn’t change, peoples perception of it has, and I’m not sure why that has happened. I think we have forgotten what our parents and grandparents taught us. The things that made them successful. We have gotten so caught up in political correctness and being in the “in” crowd, that doing the “right thing” or the things that will lead to a happy and fulfilling life have been forgotten.

With that thought I have begun this blog, to share some thoughts on how we got to where we are, and how can we get the important things back in our life, I  know that change is in the works, and some change is good, however, it has to be change for the good, not change for the sake of change,we have to remember to not throw the baby out with the bath water!

Deemed one of the most deadly snakes in the world, one strike carries enough venom to kill up to sixty people. When bitten the best thing a person can do is write a will, death normally comes quickly and silently.

The only person known to survive a bite  was bitten on the hand while feeding, he spent six months in the hospital and lost over a hundred pounds.

I saw this snake strike at a little boy who had gotten too close, lucky the snake couldn’t reach him, but the strike was so fast, that it was unseen by the human eye!
