Why do most people hate to hear the phrase, “I told you so?”

Three Chicago Tribune articles today relate to the sad events in life that can and will happen to teenagers’ brains when they disobey the laws that require them to be twenty-one years old before they can legally drink alcohol or in some states ingest chemicals into their brain matter.

The purpose of this post is to relate the hypocrisy of passing legislation that insert the contingency that it is illegal to sell chemical products that affect the brains of minors.

Article Excerpts

Cigarettes, Vaping

“……. contain nicotine which is an addictive substance.”

Alcohol

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegation, saying “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.” He has not commented on his level of intoxication. In past speeches, he has alluded to heavy drinking as a student.

Marijuana, PCP

“…. PCP in McDonald’s blood was even higher than tests indicated….”

“…. McDonald, like so many African American males, was destined to die because he did not care about living………. That is because, for so many people, McDonald’s life meant nothing. Neither does his death.”

King Solomon

Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. (Proverb 20:1)

He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth and honor. His son Solomon succeeded him as king. (Chronicles 29:28)

What’s My Point?

If you read and discern the articles, it is apparent that today’s medical evidence proves the human brain of a teenager has a high risk of permanent damage by drugs and alcohol.

You also will discern that passing a law to restrict the sell cannot ever be enforced one hundred percent.

Also, when groups of people agree to allow referendums to pass to allow recreational marijuana to be legal for sale in their communities, it is a testament that they do not care what fools do to themselves and their brains.

However, when the sad happenings occur when the police have to confront someone who has lost control of their senses because of drugs or alcohol, they care when it affects themselves, or a loved one, or their communities.

In My Opinion

What the world needs now in addition to love is wisdom.

In a previous post titled, Proverbial Promises vs..?, I commented the wisdom and love of two people’s advice thousands of years ago, which if taught and discerned, could have avoided the sad happenings we read and hear every day in the news.

All of which could be avoided if it was not for the vanity of man and because for some reason we just hate to hear the phrase, “I TOLD YOU SO.”

Who Told You So?

Read the Bible and discern Who told you so. Then consider if McDonald had been taught the Bible, perhaps he would have known that there is a Someone who cared about him.

If Interested

Read the Chicago Tribune articles in the Source Links below. If interested in why I believe legalizing recreational n marijuana will add to folly in our Nation, key in the category listing Marijuana in this blog.

You Decide

Do legislators who propose to legalize recreational marijuana care about you, your loved ones, or your communities.

How did you vote, or care about the potential for more sad effects on the referendum to legalize recreational marijuana which will undoubtedly make marijuana more accessible to teenagers, even though the hypocritical law will say it is illegal?

Why do so many humans continue over history, to be mockers of ancient wisdom advice of wisdom and love contained in the Bible?

Regards and good will blogging.
