Well now, that could sum up a lot of things these days.  But, I'm not a fatalist in that I believe Freedom's chance is very good -s-.  I think more of the lousy things collectivists pull because they can not win fairly.  Today, lousy parenting is on my mind.

A lot's been batted around concerning self defense on trial in Florida.  Self defense won.

I'm not going to get into all the ins and outs the what ifs etc.  I just noticed someone talked about lousy parenting contributing to the thug culture.

It does and often the parents are thugs too.

It was a comment somewhere about said trial.  I recalled my time working at the Juvenile Center in Indianapolis, during my work on an undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology.  I was no inexperienced kid.  I was in my thirties and had worked in other aspects of counseling including street ministry.

The thug who got killed was living with his uncle at the time of his demise.  He was visiting his dad's girlfriend's condo at the time of his demise.

The family was fractured, divided with a mother who had nothing more to do with him, a stepmother whose family devalued the dead kid and a philandering dad who had a reputation as a thief.

I saw this kind of situation all too often at the Center.

And if kids don't get pulled out of the cycle, their life of crime starts early.

I hate to see it.  I worked with some kids who made it and a lot who didn't.

Color had nothing to do with it, save that race is used to disenfranchise people and make them entitled.

And the more we are at each other's throats, the easier it is to control us.

Also, with all the hoo haa and vandalism, take a look behind the curtain and see what gov is doing as it hides behind such events.

Lousy indeed.

So you purposely left out the names. Why?

What's in a name? People should pretty much figure out to whom I'm referring. It's the fact the kid came from a dysfunctional miasma that needs attention, The names are a distraction.
