Guns Do Kill People


As the mom of a college student, I simply cannot fathom what happened in California last night.

A sweet 18-year-old boy recently asked me, “Miss Alicia, would you be mad if Gerald went to a party?” My response was, “No way. He’s in college. I hope he’s going to parties and loving college life that way I didn’t.” (And for those of you judgy types, no, I don’t mean living with his head in the toilet getting wasted. I mean going out and meeting new people and experiencing new things.)

No college student (or anyone else for that matter) should EVER have to live in fear of making the most of their life experiences. They should be able to dance in the club without a care in the world or have a blind date at their local bar. They should be able to worship freely and go to school to learn and catch up with their friends.

This senseless violence is sickening and heartbreaking. It has to stop. No, we cannot change peoples’ hearts. Only Jesus can do that. However, we can do everything in our power to make it more difficult for these sick people to carry out their disgusting acts of hatred. I truly pray our lawmakers will reflect on every single face of every single victim of gun violence as they are tempted by money and lobbyists this next two years.

This violence has to stop. Something has to change. Reforming gun control is a good start. If it doesn’t work, we will need to try something new. But we have to start somewhere. This seems like the obvious starting point.

Please Excuse Me While I Climb Up On My Soapbox


What the hell is wrong with our society?

An innocent jogger murdered in cold blood by a few bored teenagers?

(Let’s see how bored they are as they’re being butt-f*cked in prison…)

A World War II veteran beaten to death by two teenage thugs?

A 20 year old shooting an AK-47 at a Georgia elementary school?

Please, someone, tell me what the heck is wrong with today’s youth!!! Oh wait, I think I have a good idea….

We can no longer give our kids a good, old-fashioned ass-whoopin’ as was acceptable back-in-the-day.  And before you freak out – NO – I don’t mean a beating.  I mean a spanking.  Yes, there is a big difference, in case you weren’t already aware of that.

I remember once when I was about 16, I was a complete snotty little B and told my mom that I hated her.  Loooord, child – She backhanded me across the mouth one good time, and I swear to you – I never uttered those words to her again.  Ever.  And no, I didn’t think she was the worst parent ever for it.  I learned to respect her because of it.

We have got to keep control of our children, or they’ll turn out to be exactly like the idiots mentioned in the stories above.  We wonder what’s wrong with our country.  Well there you have it.

We have kids who get in trouble in school for being disrespectful morons, yet their parents are the first ones in the principal’s office raising hell because their bad-ass kid got in trouble for a perfectly legitimate reason.

Even the father of one of the hoodlum thugs who shot the jogger refuses to believe his son could have done something so horrendous, even though the kid showed absolutely no emotion in Court, nor did he claim to be not guilty.  Um, hello?!  Your kid is a murderer!  And he deserves to be punished!

It used to bug the crap out of me that first person to come to my ex’s rescue every time he was arrested for domestic abuse of not only me, but several previous girlfriends and my kids, was one of his family members.  He deserved to be arrested.  How is it ever okay to bail him out of jail immediately and then blame the victim for “making him angry” and “pushing his buttons”?

And yet we wonder why our society is so screwed up?

People, please don’t misunderstand me – I am NOT saying to go and beat the crap out of your kids.  There is a big difference between abuse and spanking/corporal punishment.  Do NOT beat your kids.  Do NOT abuse your kids.  But yes, today’s kids need to be spanked just as much as we did when we were growing up.  Look at us – we’re okay.  We’re all pretty decent people.  We’re not murderers or rapists or kidnappers or sex offenders.  We’re just bloggers.

On a side note – Please join me in praying for the families of these victims.  It’s a sad, sad world in which we live.
