Truth & Consequences: What America Needs


A group of kids vandalized campaign signs for a few of the candidates running for the 4j school board in Eugene, Oregon.

Someone wrote a comment on the post the candidates should basically take what he see’s as the “high road” and not try to find them.


It struck me: That’s what’s wrong in America today.

There is a lack of truth and no consequences for bad behavior.

When you see presidents, senators, congressional types and leaders lie and get away with it, why would a child think it’s wrong for them to do the same thing?

I would go as far as to say when they lie they are rewarded for doing so and people who seek the truth are silenced.

So why would anyone try to do what’s right?


We have prosecutors who won’t prosecute.

We have a government that tells us to wear a mask but when rioters destroy cities like Portland and get a pass for not wearing a mask and for burning and destroying public and private property, where’s the consequences.

Most of them didn’t go to jail and yet January 6th, which was also horrible, those same leaders went after the culprits with guns blazing.


Shootings and murders are up.

The media wonders why.

Why not, no one does anything about it.

Instead of consequences for the shooters we blame guns.


Our climate activists scream the end of the world and yet ban some of the most efficient energy sources available on the planet.

If the situation is that dire wouldn’t you be open to using things like natural gas, not banning it and put more effort into nuclear power rather than ban it as well.

And who calls them out?


If there truly were consequences for bad behavior, lying and misleading people, maybe they’d stop doing it.

If you throw murders in jail and leave them there instead of like Oregon’s past governor did, reduce their sentences, perhaps others would see there are consequences for bad actions…and stop killing people?


But until that happens they will spin the story to match their narrative and the problems will increase.

Maybe it’s time we stop listening to the madness and instead search for the truth….and when we find it develop and stick to some consequences for those testing the system.


Just a thought.

I agree those who vandalize signs should face à consequence. So should those who vandalized downtown Portland, and dozens were arrested. I think you are factually wrong about saying “those same leaders”, when Portland was a state/local leadership issue and the insurrectionists in DC were in a Federal jurisdiction. As a long time news guy, you know this. oh, and climate activists scream, yes they do, but governments ban, not the activists. I think you are conflating.

Throw out the basis of morality (the Bible) in schools, outlaw corporal punishment, destroy the cohesiveness and structure of the family, eliminate personal responsibility, make lying an admiral artform, encourage destructive tantrums (a form of coercion) to get your way, pacify the people with a myriad of forms of addictive entertainment, destroy the work ethic, introduce and encourage the use of mind altering escapism drugs, introduce the entitlement attitude, make theft an acceptable way to get the material things you want, eliminate life prison terms and the death penalty and forced labor as restitution to society, strip lady justice of her blindfold and scales and make justice a weapon, make "self-gratification" the most important thing in people's lives, strip law…

Wondering who has the guts to truly do what needs doing here. You and I and some others do talk about it with one another. And we actually vote our consciences, I'm pretty sure. And we do have a few in DC who are trying to do something about it. But apostle Paul said in the latter days up will be down and down will be up, good will be called bad and bad will be called good...and I tend to think God has finally just about had it with us. Stay tuned...

I’m curious what you mean by “truly do what needs doing.”
