The Destruction of Our Children's Minds & A Simple Way You Can Help Eradicate Part of the ProblemSubmitted by turner on Fri, 12/28/2012 - 21:28
Those of us who have listened to Ron Paul speak have probably heard him mention that laws do not govern or establish morality. He has also noted the "power of an idea”. These two items go hand in hand. Ideas can be found in all aspects of society, even in the grocery store.
If you've been through an H-E-B grocery store checkout lane, you may have noticed provocative "ideas" being fed to our children about sex in big, bold letters on magazine covers. My child does not need to wonder what "Bad Girl Sex" is or what "Sex Moves for Hot Couples” are. Such ideas prematurely peak their interests and help to further erode the morality of our youth. It also infringes upon the liberty the parents should have to choose when and how their children are introduced to the subject.
I realize that advertisements can be seen in many places, but since "paying" is a requirement (as is food!), there is no legitimate reason why HEB cannot provide a family-friendly aisle option (even if it's only 1 per store) so we are not forced to expose our children to inappropriate subject matter.
Due to the great stress this has caused during my already-eventful shopping trips with children in tote, I decided to speak with speaking with the store manager. She told me that she just transferred to my store from another store where they actually implemented a family-friendly aisle, but that I would have to get "a lot more people" to request an aisle in order to get them to change it. She then handed me a comment card. This got me thinking that there are probably many parents across Texas would would appreciate such an aisle, which is why I started this petition.
If you agree, please take 15 seconds to sign my petition and forward to friends. I'm only requesting ONE family-friendly store per aisle.
I am hopeful that if enough of us speak up, then we can begin to overcome the media beast that is set on destroying our society. If morality improves, then so does our society.
Thank you for your consideration.
P.S. H-E-B is a grocery chain in Texas, so if you don't live in Texas, I implore you to begin one for a chain local to your area. We can make this a countrywide effort.
