The Cushman Motor Scooter

When I was about fourteen, I was able to buy a motor scooter with the money I had saved up by working various farming jobs, including baling hay. At last, I had something to drive other than a tractor. It was a Cushman “Box” scooter. I think that at one time they were used by the military during the “Big” war.

Riding the Cushman

It was in dire need of a paint job, so I tore it down and with the help of dad sanded and repainted it. I have to admit, it looked pretty cool when I was done. It was my pride and joy; I drove that thing everywhere, through the creek, across fields and even on the road as long as the road wasn’t heavily traveled.

The best part was that I now had transportation to my hay baling jobs.

Is There A Connection Between Mood Altering Drugs and Transgenders

 

Recently an associate mentioned to me that when kids are given mood altering drugs such as Ritalin, it not only alters their mood but in reality, puts them in a continuous stupor.

The mind altering drugs such as Ritalin can also dull their sexual drive, as a result, some, when reaching their teenage formative years then resort to cocaine and other drugs to lift them up and make them feel good.

In today’s world, there seems to be an awful lot of people, even teen, who are resorting to becoming a transgender. 

Is is possible that because of the drug use, both legal and illegal, that their minds are being altered in such a way to make them confused about their own sexuality? 

Just a thought and I’m sure the medical community will disavow this, but maybe sometime in the future, the truth will come out.

The Laws of Nature, or Nature’s God

 

The laws of nature influence every phase of human existence.  Like it or not we are all governed by them in all walks of life. But that doesn’t mean we are held captive to what God thinks, we all have free will, we are controlled by our actions as it relates to our future. When we act in a certain manner, it will determine what we experience in the future.

This influences every aspect of our life. We sow what we reap.

If we treat others badly or spend foolishly, it will come back to bite us sooner or later, it’s a law of nature, there is no getting around it. Some call it karma.

In this day and age, many think they can do or say as they please and there will be no consequences.

In this live and let live society, many think there are no consequences for their actions and others just have to deal with the improper actions they perform, they just have to get over it.

Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Sooner or later, the chickens will come home to roost.

Same Sex Marriage

 

 

Same Sex Marriage   One of the big controversies of the day is same sex marriage. It seems everyone has an opinion and for many their opinion changes with the wind.

  Many people originally oppose it, but when they hear others come out in favor of it, they jump on the bandwagon wanting to be part of the “IN” crowd without thinking about all the unintended consequences.  

Once you stop defining marriage as between one man and one woman you start down a slippery slope.

Soon bigamy and polygamy will be legal, after that marriage to animals will follow. There isn’t any thing you can do to deny those possibilities once you break down the barrier and redefine marriage.

Profanity

 

Profanity

One of the major issues today is the blatant use of profanity. At one time, people tried not to use profanity in mixed company or in public. If profanity was used at all, so-called milder terms were used and the real offensive language was never used, some of the stuff used today, I never even heard of when I was a kid.

The only exceptions, if there was an extreme danger or fear, people would often lose their cool and utter words not heard in the public forum.

This is something that has gradually gotten worse over the years until today there are no limits on what or when you may hear something offensive.

Gun Control and the Militia

 

An excerpt from my book, “The Wisdom of our Ancestors”

Gun Control

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed upon.

Unlike in most other countries, our right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed in our constitution. Regardless of what some might think or say, it is an individual right, not a right given to some state or federal military force.

During the time in which our constitution and other founding documents were written, the militia consisted of citizens, not a government police force.

All physically able men, over the age of twenty-one, were automatically enlisted in the militia, it was a citizen police force whose purpose was to protect the rights and lives of the individual against all and every foe, government or otherwise.

The militia was paramount in deciding the fate of our nation; citizen soldiers from the southern states almost single-handedly defeated Cornwallis and drove him to his defeat at Yorktown.
