Character First
Do you remember when or remember hearing about when no one locked home or car doors, when a person's word was as good as a signed contract, when children could walk to school without their mothers worrying if they would make it safely? To most people today, such concepts belong to the past - but it does not have to be that way. House keys and alarm systems are unnecessary if citizens RESPECT one another's private property. Lawsuits over breach of contract would be unheard-of if TRUTHFULNESS were pervasive. Children could skip down city sidewalks unattended if the general populace had INTEGRITY.
I wonder if this would include some of the ones promoting the program.
Do as I say not as I do.
The Community’s across the U.S. and several cities are well on their way to becoming Character First Businesses, Industries and Families. ". But do you no all facts and at what cost it’s taking to promote the program. And who is behind it?
Read the truth.

Character of the Month: What is BENEVOLENCE?
BENEVOLENCE: Giving to others' basic needs without having as my motive personal reward

Look the cost of the Character fist material ask you where’s the money going to ? Who’s tracking where and how the moneys being spent?
It’s supposed to be a non profit org.
Building Communities of Character Conference

The 2007 Building Communities of Character will take place September 19-21 in Oklahoma City.

Look at cost of registration. The next conference is scheduled for 2009! Registration is $375 per individual, with a $60 discount for groups of 5 or more.
That’s not including books and other material that’s being purchased to be used to teach in schools by law.

Benefit others, even when they cannot benefit you in return.

Some of your elected officials, community leaders, and citizens-at-large do not even know who’s behind Character first. Others are placed in position to not serve the people but promote the program.

Their vision statement says a lot one city, one state, one school board, one police force and one mind at a time.

Let’s take a closer look at some legislation
Oklahoma: 1999 legislation, HB 1765, authorizes district school boards of education to develop and make available character education programs. The local school boards of the school districts of this state may develop and implement a comprehensive program for character education in grades K-6. This program shall focus on students’ development of character traits, the kind and manner found in available curriculum.“It being immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is hereby declared to exist, by reason whereof this act shall take effect.”

My Questions:
1. How would it be immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety? We are talking about a school grades k-6 are we not?
2. What an emergency is to be declared to exist, by reason whereof this act shall take effect? Who would declare it? Would it be the same people placed in positions that have been promoting his program? Instead of serving the people in the courts up holding their rights or freedoms.
3. Where of this act shall take effect. Meaning no vote by the people will be needed kind of like military law.

I've lived in my city for one year. I have really crabby neighbors in the front and side. I have dogs behind me. I cannot go into my side or backyard without them barking at me viciously non stop. They won't stop!! I can work all day and pay all these high taxes and I cannot go into my backyard without being drove nuts.

Also, My neighbors, are freaks!! I never have guests. I am not loud. I work. I have a barbeque in the spring. My first cookout with guests. The kids are outside playing. Being children, lauging, playing, doing kartwheels, laying on the grass and looking at the constellations. Yes, they were outside till about 10:30 or maybe 11 pm. My son does have asthma and he does couch and hack sometimes. Anyhow, my neighbor called the police and told them I had an MIP party. I didn't even know what that was. The officer told me my neighbor was nortorious for complaining. He said she was terrible. O.k. so, now, I don't know if the kids do anything outside, if the S.W.A.T. Team isn't going to come. We stay indoors mostly, but, this Davison City is too stuffy and quite costly!!!
