Category Archives: Adolescence – what is it?


Why America Is Obese And Ways Government Can Eliminate Obesity in American Youth.

  1. Make our streets safe so children can again go outside and play and ride their bikes without fear of perverts.
  2. Some Americans are so soft on crime that the criminals ruin the streets while the      innocent must imprison themselves in their homes for safety. No wonder they are getting fat.
  3. Re-criminalize all kinds of pornography, real and virtual. Clean up sex on TV and the movies, in other words, stop feeding perverts with perversion. Go back to  #1
  4. Eliminate crime by punishing child abusers so that they can’t do it again. It is      because of misguided bleeding hearts that level three sex offenders are given a chance to do it again, just because they ‘might’ have changed when police departments know that  it is not a case of ‘if’ but a case of ‘when’ they will victimize again.  The recidivism rate amongst sex offenders is unacceptable. Go back to #3
  5. While some cry to disarm people of guns, many more cry to disarm rapists of their weapon of choice. Disarm the rapists. Men give up their sexuality voluntarily in sex change operations and homosexuality and think that we must accept it. Well, accept the fact that, just like a gun, the state will take a man’s sexuality when he uses it  criminally.
  6. Lower taxes so there can be more stay-at-home moms who will have the time to fix      nutritious home cooked meals instead of feeding children and families with      prepared boxed food laden with preservatives, fats, sugars, and high prices because both parents must work in order to pay taxes. Lower college tuition. Make College education more affordable to those willing to learn. Eliminate greed in college officials. No one is irreplaceable and good teachers should not ‘bleed’ the students out of their own need for greed.

In short, get tough on sex crimes, lower taxes and realize that true freedom is the freedom to say NO to pornography in all forms. Freedom to choose means just that – the freedom to say NO to bad things. When this Nation learns to say NO, then it will regain some of its lost   freedom.America is becoming a garbage dump of immorality which leads to crime, multiple victims and yes, even obesity.

Americais a land of refuge.  Muslims do not need refuge from their own country. Send them back and close the door. We will have no part of their efforts of forcing their laws of disparity and inequity for the female through Sharia Law.

There is freedom to say “No.”   Say it. Say it often.


I was shocked at the way the media reported the death of a “little girl” from complications of a heart and lung transplant. I was shocked mostly because of the way press coverage handled it, referring to the 17 year old as a ‘little girl’. “Girl”, yes!  “Little girl”, hardly! I prefer even less hearing a fourteen year old being called a young adult. Sadly, media often uses terminology to create ‘shock reports’.

Let’s backtrack:
Liberals at a school board meeting were trying to justify giving out condoms, and much to my fury, children younger than seventeen were being falsely referred to as ‘young men and young women’. To me, at that age, they are still boys and girls, definitely older children, but certainly not young adults.

What ever happened to the stage of adolescence? Adolescents are grown children, not yet adults. As much as we may wish to skip right over it, ignoring this difficult period in
life will not make it go away.

Since then, I have been observant as to how society refers to the different age groups. I find it routinely inconsistent; society, it seems, cannot make up its mind about its
own. Total confusion reigns – and yet it should not.

Is a fourteen to seventeen year old, a little girl, a young adult, or an older child?  Many are not yet physically fully grown at these ages. The law refers to those under eighteen who are not yet of legal age, as ‘infants’. The reason has to do with mental capacity and the inability
to make decisions which carry long term effects.

Let’s get something straight: a fourteen year old is not a young adult. A seventeen year old is not a little girl, as the media so readily identified her. But if so, then what is a fourteen year old? Certainly not a young adult. The subjects themselves may not like the term older child but they are not ready to accept the responsibilities of an adult either!

Will the media continue to avoid using the descriptive “adolescent” for fear of misspelling
it?  Come on, this is the computer age!

Adolescence means having the ‘essence’ of an adult, before becoming even a young one. At this age of transition they need our emotional and mental protection as much as, when at
the transition from baby to child, they needed our physical protection. Let’s establish some ground rules here.

My annoyance with incorrect terms escalates when I hear a lawyer refer to a criminal as a ‘gentleman’. Being neither gentle, nor in my estimation a real man; he is a male, a guy; perhaps they could get away with calling him a man, or a person; but not a gentleman. Terminology has been lost. I was infuriated that a lawyer who should know the importance of words and their meanings was so misconstruing them. I thought he only served to
emasculate himself. I’ve heard men say of some adult women, ‘She’s no lady’. It
means something. Therefore it is contradictory to call a criminal a gentleman.

I wish people would get their terms straight; especially those who make a living on words, such as lawyers and reporters.

More important, let us not disregard that stage of growth called: adolescence –being an adult neither emotionally nor mentally, only having the essence thereof.   – end
