Teach our children:
The right to protect our self is a GOD given right, not a privilege.
Teach them not to fear guns. Guns save many more lives than people take with them.
Teach them how to grow a garden, and kill a deer.
Make them take a hunter safety course. Learn to handle a firearm.
Teach patriotism. Say the pledge, stand for the anthem.
Put our founder’s pictures back on the walls of our public schools.
Put our Constitution, Preamble and Bill of Rights back into our schools. Put them in our churches, our public buildings, and our businesses.
Teach the uniqueness of being American, not a “global citizen”, and that being different, or a LEGAL immigrant does not make you any less of an American.
Teach them the dangers and failures of socialism. Great idea on paper, doesn’t work, has never worked, won’t ever work.
Teach them how to balance a checkbook. Change a tire. Check the oil. Check the radiator.
Teach them how to fold an American flag. Teach them reverence for it.
Teach them that soldiers don’t start war, but they have a right not to die in combat.
Teach them that freedom isn’t free, it comes with a cost. And some gave all.
Teach them to respect our elders, and their parents.
Teach them to respect our veterans, living and dead.
Teach them to love America, with all her imperfections and shortcomings.
To love God’s people, Israel.
Teach them to vote. To not be afraid to speak truth to power, not to be afraid to get involved in politics, lest, as Plato said, they be ruled by fools who did.
Teach them that they are AMERICANS, not “global citizens”.
Teach them the sanctity of human life. At any age. Childbirth is much safer, and much more honorable than abortion.
Make them aware of the evil that would enslave us.
Teach them that we have a moral imperative to follow and obey just laws, and an even greater imperative to disobey unjust ones.
Teach them about who Alinski was, make them familiar with “rules for radicals”, to help them understand the present evil in the world.
Teach them that a restraining order is just a piece of paper. Bad people don’t follow the rules.
Teach them that the bad guys don’t follow the rules. Count on them NOT to.
Teach them the best remedy for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Teach them that some lessons in life are more expensive than others.
Teach our children to believe. In God. In themselves. In others.
Teach our children to love themselves. To love the unlovable. To go where others fear to tread.
Teach our kids that it is not a perfect world. Never has been, won’t ever be.
Teach our kids that the only thing certain in life is change, and lots of that.
Teach them that you love them in their failures just as much as you do in their successes.
Teach them to love others in the same way. And God loves them even more than you do.
Teach our children to pray. Pray with them. Let them see you pray. Let them know you love Jesus, so they won’t have any doubts, and the preacher won’t have to lie at your funeral.
Teach them that they will fail, and others will fail them. Love them anyway.
Teach them that its impossible to describe what it feels like to pick a cat up by the tail, but they’ll never forget it once they do.
Teach them that there will be times when they don’t like their friends, even their spouses a whole lot, don’t let that be a deal breaker.
Teach them to be agreeable, to find common ground with people verses differences.
You’ll never learn anything from someone you completely agree with.
Don’t talk religion, politics or relationships at work.
If someone is a gossip, they’ll talk about you too.
Teach them not to value differences more than they do their relationship. Most things aren’t worth being right about anyway.
Teach them to chase their dreams, pursue their passions, reach for the stars.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Never accept failure until after you’ve tried at least twice.
Never allow anyone to dictate who you can be friends with, but we are all judged by the company we keep.
You can’t fix stupid. Don’t try.
Teach them to judge folks based on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
Teach them to “do right” and have empathy for others.
Teach them to be grateful, and content with what they have.
Teach them that locks are for honest people.
Teach them that it’s not a perfect world. Life isn’t fair. Don’t expect it to be.
The best remedy for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Sweat doesn’t cost much, but it can save you a fortune.
Some things cost too much to fix and aren’t worth the trouble.
The most expensive things are usually not the highest quality, whereas the cheapest things are usually a shade below what you paid for it.
The Joneses have nicer things, but they’re most often more broke than you are.
Never carry a knife to a gunfight.
Best to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.
When in doubt, overdress. Its easier to take off a jacket than it is to put on one you don’t have.
Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.
Be content with what you have.
Never judge anything before its time.
Never speak on anything you don’t have all the facts about.
Your word is your bond. Be stingy with it.
The best way to lose a friend is to loan them money. Banks require collateral for a reason.
There are usually at least two sides to every story. You’ll find the truth between these two.
God may not move the mountain for you, but he will help to climb it. He may not part the seas, but he’ll help you stay afloat. He may not quench the fire, but he will get in there with you.
The booger man doesn’t exist. Nor does the tooth fairy.
Teach them that the sky is not falling, The seas are not rising, and there is plenty of room, and plenty of food on this planet for everyone. Don’t be afraid things you have no control over.
God says “as long as the earth endures, hot and cold, summer and winter shall never cease”.
Be generous, but don’t be stupid about it. If you think someone is trying to take you for a fool, they are.
