Our good friend Joe Wurzelbacher has said, “…Liberal philosophy and political correctness is in the process of killing what made America Great, and we need more voices calling it out…and shutting it (and them) down…”
We could not agree more! As government intrudes on our privacy and babies those who are not motivated, it robs Americans of strength and character building consequences! Read this wonderful post detailing the beauty of consequences, for a family and for society.
Political Correctness, Bullying and other BS

Some lessons need to be learned: You can tell your child a million times, “don’t touch the stove, it’s hot,” or you can tell them once, let them touch it, and they quickly figure it out. Some will think I am evil, but the fact is it’s effective. Choices are a part of life; the wrong ones will burn you.
Traditionally in America, we have always tried to make things a little better for our kids than we had for ourselves. It’s the American way, but it is one that, in my opinion, sets us up for failure. The generation-to-generation increase in living standards (not just financial) makes it impossible for people to learn lessons that they need to survive.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Does anyone remember hearing that when you were a kid? It still holds true if you don’t take feelings into account, but in today’s hypersensitive society that is not the case, it’s all about feelings.
Words that were perfectly acceptable a couple decades ago are demonized because some group’s feelings got hurt. Just the other day I was made aware of a societal memo that I must have missed. The M word is NOT an acceptable term, small people, or is it little people were offended by it. Obviously the porn industry didn’t get the memo, or maybe they just don’t care. Either way it doesn’t matter since no one watches porn anyway.
Dealing with the bully is no different. While I do not endorse physical confrontation, I would like to share a childhood story. My dad was at work when my brother was expelled from grade school for beating up some kid. I was raised by parents who believed wholeheartedly in not sparing the rod. All of us kids knew that when he got home, there was going to be hell to pay and mom was a master of the old “wait until your father gets home” routine. Surprisingly the old man wanted to know the circumstances. My brother explained that so-and-so was calling some retarded kid names and shoving him, so my brother stepped in and introduced the bully to a beating. The next day the principal explained the situation the same as my brother.
