Family Culture

Wednesday, September 26, 2012
I recognize more and more (probably magnified by the the kids getting older and visiting more friends' houses) that each household has a very distinct culture.  Even if all other variables are constant (same ethnicity, religion, etc.), there are still differences in "how we do things."

That's a line we use often when kids are seeking an explanation about why WE don't do this, or why THEY aren't allowed to do that.  It's just how we do things here.  For example, you won't find our kids roaming the house until all hours of the night until they just settle themselves down to bed.  Bedtime is real here.  You won't find us all fending for ourselves at mealtime.  We eat together.  The same food.  We do what needs to be done before what we want to do and we don't expect something for nothing.

I'm not sure if it was Rich and my pre-marriage classes or just what makes us compatible in the first place, but we just seem to have the same "feel" for how we want our family / household run.  And I am thankful for that.  I hear of parents who argue about how to handle homework or attitudes and it's just not a hot button issue for us.  This is good, because it leaves no wiggle room for the kids to see.

This brings me to one of my favorite soap-box topics - family meals.  The Nick @ Nite commercial I referred to in my last post was perfect.  A family gathering around a table passing dishes of food called, "people skills," "self-esteem" and "respect."  One kid mildly complains that they had "self-esteem" last night and the mother retorts, "Honey, we have that every night."  I loved it. 

Certainly there will be eye-opening experiences as the kids DO visit more families and see how they do things, but hopefully they always come home and find comfort in they way we do things around here.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods placed us all into our own corners of the globe. As such for thousands of years we spent time and reproduced with out own kind.
This is why mobilty/travel, biracial unions/offspring and partaking of other cultures is a sin::::
Each has it's own elements of disfavor, and by experiencing other cultures you are being exposed to these disfavors, which if people may adopt will make their state even worse than prior.
The United States has been considered a "melting pot" where rejects from around the world were sent when kicked out of their motherland.
Remember, this concept of cultural diversity is an element of the liberal platform the gods used to promote societal decay, revealed on the map with the "beast" that is the SanFranciscoBayArea and the spread of social deterioration that spread to the rest of the country and eventually to the entire globe.

Ronald Reagan spent the communist block into submission with defense buildup, and in the process increased the National debt from $1 trillion in 1980 to $6 trillion when he left office.
W charged both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to the national debt, honest numbers to come.
The gods used W to initiate the "Great Recession" with deliberate legislation/regulation changes, allowing the sub-prime fiasco and corporate irresponsibility/criminal behavior which led to the multi-trillion dollar stimulous package, pocketted by Republican friends and donors::::$5 trillion charged to the National credit card.
This corruption is one element of evil in the party of good. War mongering is another.
Damned if you do, Damned if you don't::::With the Democrats you subscribe to social decay via liberlism, which WILL lead to the Apocalypse. Republicans are being used by the gods to bankrupt the United States, ultimately motivating people to the point of "desperation prayer" once anarchy presides::::Punishment designed to correct your behavior.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity. Once your children have been raised something changes, something has been decided about you. This is exactly that.
