Iraq Weapons Are a Focus of Criminal Investigations

People are dying. Their fighting for what they think is right. For a decision made my money grubbing, greedy, uncaring people who are only in it for themselves.


Wait, that’s happened before, I forgot. People are always dying for money. What a great cause.

“We need to do something about it” “But I’m only one person”

I’m so sick of that, but truly, what can we all do? What can each one of us do? The political system is totally screwed. The vast majority of the population would most likely roll over for a few extra bucks.

You know what’s wrong with this country? (I can’t believe I’m going to say this)

Lack of Ethics

period. The generation above me and my generation – “I don’t give a rats ass as long as I can make more and spend more and get more and show off more and more and more!”

WTF? Wait, I know! I’ll run for president and change everything. Um, no. That won’t work. No one would vote for me because I wouldn’t want to take all that money. Bill Bradley tried that, and look where it got him!

You know what you can do? Teach your kids. Teach the kids who are learning what life is like the hard way. Teach your kids, or at least the kids you come into contact with

  • Manners
  • Patience
  • Respect

and most importantly

  • Whatever they do, they are responsible for their own actions and the consequences of those actions.

Don’t hide things from them that you’ve done in the past. Let them learn from your mistakes and bad decisions so that they don’t make the same bad decisions and mistakes. Don’t try to “just not let them” do things because they’ll rebel even more. Let them benefit from your experiences.

Do my kids know I did drugs when I was in college and that it took me 11 years to finish?


“I’m not going to do drugs Dad, ever.” I’m glad they’re saying this now, but it’s important to follow through. Keep up the reminders, the reasons, and the explanations so they don’t think it was just a speech that you felt obligated to make when they were 10, before they were every exposed to anything.

CONSISTENCY is the key.
AWARENESS of their actions
RESPONSIBILITY for those actions
THINK ETHICALLY about anything they do.

Wait, where did this soapbox come from? Okay, I’ll get down now.
