Does Two Wrongs Make A Right?

From the Facebook page of Pete Hester, 8/31/20.
Let me ask you folks…Does two wrongs make a right? I think I can answer that and I am not sure the two wrongs are of the same magnitude but we have to remember that wrong is wrong. The first wrong is slavery. Nothing I can say to that except it is wrong. Mistreating any person for any reason is always wrong and if the mistreatment is based on the color of one’s skin, it is terribly wrong. Violence’s is always wrong. Breaking laws meant to protect us from each other is always wrong. Believe me us white folks are very guilty on all those counts. But let me say to the black folks. You are just as obligated to uphold those laws as the whites. Going out on Saturday night and breaking laws, white or black, you have to be stopped from doing that. Both of us. Looting and stealing in the name of protesting is wrong. White or black. It’s wrong….We have got to have a police department to protect and serve. White and black…..It seems to me that us with calmer heads and Christian hearts, white and black, have got to do a little reasoning and all agree on one point. America is the greatest country on earth. The best way to destroy it is to turn it against itself, neighbor against neighbor, fighting and stealing from one another…yes and even killing one another. Our little children, many with mixed race parents are so conflicted with how to face the worlds problems even asking themselves if they can. People, come, let us reason together. Lets just settle down and get it done. Yeah, it may be a pipedream but it sure could be a start ….

History…A Forgotten Subject, Well, Until We Get It Changed…

So history is being rewritten….We do not want to offend anyone. Tell the people what they want to hear. As long as it is not the truth. Wars on the American frontier…probably never happened. War between the states? You kidding  me….Football, well yeah….but shooting bullets at our brothers? I am not going to take this any further but I think it is ridiculous that the history books have to be changed to be used in our schools. When are the children introduced to the truth? Not knowing the history helps them somehow? What am I missing here? How can we justify changing American History? Even a watered down version would be better than no history. It’s a sad day when we rewrite the history books.

Black Boy Calls White Boy, White Boy….

On the basketball court today a black boy called a white boy, “white boy”. I am assuming then that it is ok for a white boy to call the black boy, “black boy”. It is not a one way street. What’s good for one is good for the other. It’s ok with me and I am not commenting other to say that what’s fair is fair. I have nothing further to add if it ends there. I suppose we shall see in tomorrows paper, huh? But I imagine it will escalate somewhat between now and then.

 

Burning Bibles….A |Terrible Action

Burning Bibles is certainly a way to get attention, but not attention in a good way. If the Black Lives Matter are the ones doing the burning I would distance myself from any in that group. The one that can and will help, hear and answer prayers of the people, will be turning a deaf ear to those doing the burning in the future. That action says they are getting mad at God…That makes matters so much worse. These are some weird people and hopefully it is a very small minority of the Blacks that had a part in this bible burning session. I hope they will come down on and condemn those who did this evil thing. You folks are putting a burden on your own backs. One day you will see that. I hope it is not too late. I hope those in charge of BLM will come forward with an apology for this evil deed.

Mail In Ballots

Some folks are fussing about mail in ballots. Sweetie and I have been mailing in ballots for several years now. She had a stroke a few years ago and cannot get around all that well and certainly cannot handle long lines with social distancing. So, mail in ballots is our preferred method of voting. I can understand why some would want it limited but certainly we don’t want them to do away with it.
