What the above house is doing to minimize the affect of Climate Change and what you can do.

  • Plant a tree on the west side of the house in front of windows. Make sure that the tree is not bigger than the house and loses its leaves in the winter.
  • Install awnings over windows that block sun in the summer and allow sun in during the winter.
  • Install weatherstripping around doors and windows to stop leaks of weather into the house during summer and winter.

Opinion – All Schools Need Moral High Ground and Backbone

Featured

No, not prayer. Basically, ALL schools need the Ten Commandments minus the God stuff. We are so hung up with the God stuff, that we ignore the Ten Commandments. We lose out by separating church aka religion and state aka government.

If we take out the God stuff, the Ten Commandments cover most of what the major 7 or 8 religions in the world teach plus or minus “an eye for an eye” clause. In other words, the remaining 7 Commandments need to be taught in every school. Let’s review them.

Remember the Sabbath day. So taking Saturday or Sunday to reflect is a great idea. We all need to recharge our “batteries”. Take the time to rest, regroup, meditate. And if it includes practicing your favorite religion on Saturday or Sunday, then go for it.

Honor thy Father or Mother. This can be generalized to say honor or respect your elders whether it be father, mother, grandparents, teacher or some old guy down the street. These people have a lot more life experiences than you. They may have more stress and more knowledge.

Thou shalt not commit adultery. This is pretty obvious. Do not cheat on a significant other whether you are married or not. If there are compatibility issues, try to end it calmly and fairly and move on.

Thou shall not kill. Another obvious commandment. Punishable by death or life in prison.

Thou shall not steal. Also obvious but needs to be reiterated. As thieves get away with crimes, their friends and associates think it is okay to steal. A strong police presence is required coupled with a three strikes law that elevates the severity of the punishment. At the same time, we need to ask why did you steal? There may be a deeper issue such as poverty or drug use.

Thou shall not bear false witness. Plainly speaking, do not lie. Politicians are famous for lying. But they must be held accountable whether it is via fact checkers or some other means. If they get away with a lie, then society breaks down with more lies or by repeating the false narrative.

Thou shall not covet thy neighbors house. Again, plainly speaking, do not be jealous of others. This can lead to bad thoughts and bad deeds. Be happy with what you have.

Conclusion. So what this post is attempting to say is, let us encourage ALL schools to reinforce these remaining 7 non-God Commandments and then all of our communities will be that much better off. Thanks for your time.
