CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
i think society has an obligation to punish those who do not adhere to the laws society has deemed proper. and society also has the obligation to find the proper punishment for each violation of those laws. my personal belief is opposed to the death penalty,BUT , i also believe that when you send someone off for punishment they need to feel that punishment. they should not feel as though it is a vacation from the society they struggle to fit into. if we can make military recruits adhere to conformity (hair, beard, dress, etc.) we can make the lawless too ! the law-breaker does not deserve the amenities of the society they can not live within the laws in! WE MUST MAKE THEM FEEL LIKE THEY ARE BEING PUNISHED !!
IT IS MY BELIEF WHAT RELIGION DOES FOR HUMANITY IS , IT GUIDES US IN A MORAL ,COMPASSIONATE AND PEACEFUL LIFE JOURNEY . BUT ALL RELIGIONS HAVE , AT TIMES , BEEN DIVERTED FROM THOSE IDEALS AND HAVE TURNED MALEVOLENT . IT IS LEFT TO THE MAJORITY OF THE CONGREGANTS IN EACH RELIGION TO STEER THE FAITHFUL BACK TO THE TRUE PATH OF THEIR RELIGION .AND IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT MULE ( RELIGION ) YOU RIDE TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN AS LONG AS YOU REACH THE TOP ! ( HEAVEN ,OR WHAT EVER YOUR RELIGION BELIEVES IS IT’S ULTIMATE GOAL )
TERRORISM….. how do we respond to terrorists , should we bomb , send in the troops , just what should we do ? In my opinion we can not over react to these groups . We can never be completely safe no matter what we do ,in my opinion . No matter how much money and resources we expend these people will always be there . We can not allow ourselves to be consumed by their actions or else we play right into their hands ! We should invest in intelligence and try to stop as many attacks as possible , but to enter a ground war is insane ! We have to live our lives normally realizing that we can never be totally safe from them …..or anything for that matter .
WAR …… Is war always the option to turn to ? I hope not . It is apparent that as a species we react to so many things as if it were a contest where a winner must be named . I believe it is better to analyze first , trying to see the other side’s point , then try to seek a compromise .
Before unleashing the dogs of war we must analyze the whys and what ifs , then look to history to see what wars have brought before . See all the deaths , maimed , and destruction they left behind . See all the positive ,the lives saved , the advancement of society in a positive way.
But if it is decided war is needed we must include all of our society , to invest everyone in the fight . We must budget time and resources in a manner to achieve the results we desire in a cost-effective and the shortest time possible and admit when it is no longer possible to go on .
Most importantly we must take care , long-term , those who we ask to fight for us no matter what !!!!

education …..are we educating our future generation as well as we did decades ago ? I don’t believe we are . I attended a school that had small classes (25/30) and we also had respect for the teachers and their position , it was just natural .
The school was clean and we had pride in the institution ! I had the opportunity ,35 years later , to tour the school. What i saw was so depressing those memories will never leave me. the children were screaming and running in the hallways , laying on the desks and the place just smelled awful .
i believe these things and others have produced children who don’t believe in the importance of a good education ,do not respect authority and they are children who fell entitled !
I reentered the military 25 years after my first military tour . I scored much higher on the entrance exam than i had originally , when i questioned this the told me they needed to dumb down the test so they would be able to meet quotas ! Is this reaching forward or turning backwards !?
