Where Great Intelligence Goes To Be Insulted

What do kids actually DO these days?

When I was a kid I read books, went hunting for recycle pop and beer bottles, delivered papers, played a bit of street hockey... I’m not saying it was perfect, but it was okay. I got in my share of trouble but I never got in trouble with the police. I had a fair degree of freedom for a kid.

My daughter was always up in her room on the computer. Or drawing or sketching. They’d do the messaging thing and chatter like birds... all on line. She did a few other artsy-crafty things. Most of her friends did the same so we didn’t worry about it. She didn’t care for sports or Brownies much either. She got good marks in school and kept her nose clean, but other than that she had a lot of freedom too.

Of course the flip side to that are the kids that are forced by their helicopter parents to do all kinds of things they wouldn’t otherwise do. They spend every waking second in organized and controlled settings where they all have to play a certain way, they’re always watched and supervised. They have sports, music lessons, planned play dates... ugh. That ain’t right either.

Are the Girl Scouts still around or did the queers and pedos sink them too? Given all the social justice warriors running around I’m sure they have become lesbian/cat lady/harpy factories if they’re still around. How do ya raise a kid right these days?

I guess I got thinking all this because of that vid going viral right now. If you haven’t seen it, you will: the sensitivity mob is swarming some guy... and a young man is trying to beat him to death with a skateboard. They drag him down, and the guy comes up with a gun and plugs that kid like a pro. The mob scatters like chickens. It was a righteous kill, self defence... open and shut case. All us conservative old buggers are high giving each other and applaud the pistolcraft. That’s all it takes to put these feral mobs on the run but nobody stands up to them. Our leaders will attack people that stand up for themselves.

But... JFC... what’s a boy that age gadding round on a skateboard for? Kid that age should have a car... and how did a perfectly good kid wind up in a crowd of noggers and militant shitlib socialists? How did this kid wind up thinking it’s okay to swarm and kill random strangers on the street? There is no “win” here for anyone.

We aren’t parenting our kids anymore. Perhaps we’ve been neglecting them for some time.

Have a good Wednesday you guys. Hold the little ones close as you can.

  1. Back when I was young and running all over, think late 60's, early 70's... The police were a bit less on the leash, less militarized, and more proactive. I heard stories of reform school losers being shown the city limits and told not to return. I heard stories of good kids, getting in trouble, and the popo taking them for some wall to wall counseling. Gave them a new perspective.

    I learned later on, that the spanking I'm giving my kid right now (a little pain to remind them to look both ways before running into the street) will save them much pain later on (getting nailed by a car, and losing limbs, or 50 points of IQ).

    Most have been too tenderhearted to teach those lessons, so the kids get one chance to avoid/make a life altering mistake.

    1. I grew up in Mayberry. No vibrants, and the few baddies were hassled by the cops and no bones about it. If your bike was stolen, the cops knew where it was and would have it back for you the same day.

  2. I watched the vid as well, and agree; the leghuggers went after him, he fought back, and the leghuggers scattered like roaches when the lights come on. The "gunman" was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon... for trying to stay alive... after trying to keep the leghuggers from dropping yet another statue... This is where we are now...

    1. He's going to walk. But the liberal infested courts will wage lawfare on him and ruin him. I hope he gets a go fund me or something going...

  3. Yeah, pretty much ran wild as a child. Be home when Dad got home at 5:30 pm for dinner. Then, back in when the street-lights came on. Don't annoy the neighbors to the point they complained about you. If the sun is shining you were outside; no holing up in your room.

    Pretty much raised my bunch the same way. They had to share the computer with us. Cell phone was a prepay to call home to let us know when the bus got back in after sporting events. The TV and DVD player were in the living room and we ate all our meals at the table, together. I'm old-fashion and unapologetic about it. My kids know how to behave in public, can look you in the eye and hold an intelligent conversation.

    1. You did well. I congratulate you. After being a youth pastor in the early 2000's, I realized your methods were few and far between...

    2. Today an upbringing like that almost constitutes child abuse. I can see wanting to go soft on the kids, but good grief ... when they are adults the real world is going to put them through the meat grinder...

  4. When I found that I was with child I started praying over her and still do
    Calling down God's blessing and Presence upon your child is the most important thing you can do
    We also homeschooled her
    Homeschooling is coming under strong attack in the USA now
    The evil doers will not stop until they own your kids in order to lead them straight into hell
    Keep a firm grip on your babies

  5. They carry skateboards because carrying a lump of wood at a demonstration could lead to you being charged with possessing a weapon.
