are changing, just look around you. Let’s take the language. It sounds almost
foreign. “I seen him do it.” Or “Him and me seen it.” Not, “He and I saw it.”
And then there’s a new interpretation of “adoption.” We now adopt dogs, not
children. For some newly evolved parents, that is a plus!
They might as well take the words “please” and thank you” out of the dictionary.
Webster dictionary has added “spay” and “neuter” because even first graders know
those words and they make crude jokes about what “got gone.” Yet they don’t know
the difference between “MAY I” and “CAN I?” er, help you? “May” asks permission
whereas “can” asks if I am able. My answer is probably not. Especially if they
are offering to help me select a new puppy. Most city kids don’t even know it as
a living creature.
The “modern woman” shows off as much of the body as possible. Even female news
anchors favor plunging
Hemlines? What’s that? Soon we will do away with clothes altogether. In the
meantime though, we insist on dressing up our pets! Liberated women who refuse
to bear children wrap their pet dogs in outrageous trappings. Do modern women
actually prefer cute dogs to real babies? Sit in the park
for an hour and observe women showing off their breasts while s-mothering a
panting pet in frilly baby clothes in a stroller.
When we parents allow children to have leaders like “Lady GAGA” and adult women
swoon over HSUS President Wayne Pacelle, we know our society is in real trouble.
She says,” I am being real” and he is going to “save the animals.”
The dishonesty of trying to look like a Barbie doll and of the animal “rights” guru seen
everywhere on TV today offends me.
Person to person violence is on the rise. Not shouting but shootings! Many young
people are so uneducated they can’t verbalize their frustration but it seems
they can all point a gun! Robberies, burglaries, and home invasions occur with
heinous results. Gang numbers today rival the population of a small nation. And
of course, many have big tough dogs with which they can posture. THAT is what
gives me the shivers. And who takes care of the dog?
So what are we doing with the emerging new earthlings? NOTHING. We lock our
doors and turn our heads and try not to hear their foreign words or note their
uncivilized actions. We are afraid to know our neighbors because they might be
one of them or we fear being accused of being nosy. Where are the good neighbors
that care about one another? Oh, I forgot, they are isolated of their own
volition, glued to TV’s and computers. Not a dog in the house or a cat snuggled
in the lap. Pet are passť’ other than as an accessory.
Yes, I think that we have been taken over by an alien race of negative beings
that want the worst for us and we are giving them their way because we are too
frightened to speak up. We bemoan what they do to our animal friends and shudder
at what our children and grandchildren are learning today.
Did you ever imagine a time when we would be overwhelmed by a society we don’t even recognize? Did you ever think that,
reached adulthood, you would be too afraid to speak out and make a difference?
Oh wait. Now I remember LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT. It is still up to us, the
educators and grandparents of today to instill a thirst for knowledge instead of
carnage, to teach humility instead of mindless arrogance and to re-connect the
human-animal bond in our young people. The most deprived slum child can find
comfort in a kitten. The most poverty stricken old-timer will smile at a
pleading puppy and offer it a crust of bread.
Maybe all is not lost and we human earthlings can get our priorities and genetic
code back together. The animals have their act together. What’s wrong with us?
