POSITRACTION: Kids volunteer to keep an old lady out of legal trouble


Kids Volunteer to Mow a Stranger’s Field to Keep Her Out of Trouble
by Good News Network – June 11, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Four brothers loaded up their mowers to help a stranger after hearing about an elderly woman who was in trouble with the law because her grass was too high.

It was a sweltering hot Texas day, but that didn’t deter the four Reynolds boys from pushing mowers through waist high grass over more than an acre of property she owns in Riesel.

“We haven’t met her yet but she’s 75 years old and she needs some help mowing,” Blaine Reynolds told KWTX News. “That’s the least we could do.”

*** end quote ***

I could make an ENDNOTE out of the stupidity of the law. But that aside, these young men are impressive. 

What role did their parents have in this idea?

If they truly did it all on their own, then they deserve even more praise.

They fit my definition of “warrior”.

*** begin quote ***

Please pick a warrior, one who, like the Indian brave, will not eat, until every widow and orphan in his tribe has had their fill. Judge the man you are about to pick on his deeds. Choose the man, who acts in your benefit and that of others, rather than his own.  

*** end quote ***

— heroic character “Marie” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 220

I hope that more young people can follow this example and then they can restore America to its ideal.

I also hope she demands a jury trial. I’d like to be on that jury.

And, the politicians and bureaucrats who passed that law and | or involved with her prosecution, should all be recalled and | or fired, for extreme stupidity.

Maybe they should have been out mowing?


Any way, well done to the young “warriors”. Hope I can live up to their example.

ENDNOTE: Reinke, F. John (MC1968) disagrees with Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957)


Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957) blogged:

*** begin quote ***

I feel compelled to comment further re the nine blacks killed while in church in Charleston. An act of white supremacy. Slavery was banned via the Civil War more than a 150 years ago. The Confederacy died with it. Confederate ideology not, however.

Things have gotten worse in the six years Obama has been President. Not his fault. The fault of those whites who cannot stand the thought of a black man in power.

*** end quote *** 

I disagree that it’s not Obama’s fault.

I strongly disagree with “who cannot stand the thought of a black man in power”.

He has practiced racially divisive tactics politically. Spoke out inappropriately at times. And, in general, demonstrated his youthful inexperience.

For example, after blaming guns for the killing, without mentioning the SSRI component of all but two of the mass murders by young males, he incorrectly states that this doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world. A fact that was quickly refuted by folks on the internet.

Then, instead of being Presidential and flying to Charlestown, he goes to Hollywood for two fund raisers.

This is his fault.

Leadership is badly lacking in this country. And, it’s taking all of us — black and white — down to Perdition.


Happy “independence day”. Lower case because “We, The Sheeple” have lost it by electing the corrupt politicians.
