I found this on the net; it reminded me of summers that I spent in the country or a small town in Minnesota and what Forest park was like and what we really want it to be.

 

Found these in the American Cowboy magazine and thought I'd post them seeing as how there is much discussion about the cowboy way.

Red Ryder's (Dave Saunders) Cowboy Code:

Take responsibility for your actions; don't blame others for the consequences of what you choose to do. Always exercise self-control.

Treat others as you want to be treated, fairly and equally. Never look down on anyone.

Respect yourself first. Then you will respect others and what is theirs, to include their outlook of life.

Be happy, joyful, and live your life the very best you know how. When you work or are given chores, do all in an excellent way.

Be a moral leader. Set an example for others to follow, to include always presenting a good appearance.

Be trustworthy, truthful, a keeper of your word, honest even when you think no one is looking.

Choose your friends carefully. Stay away from those who are looking for trouble.

Show concern for the other fellow. Be the champion of the underdog, the oppressed, and the disadvantaged. Help someone, someway, every day.

Stand up for what you know is right. Don't follow the crowd just because everyone else is doing it.

Remember-what you do to others comes back to you-be it good or bad.

(Sept. /Oct. 2005 issue)

Gene Autry's Cowboy Code

1. The Cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair advantage.

2. He must never go back on his word, or a trust confided in him.

3. He must always tell the truth.

4. He must be gentle with children, the elderly, and animals.

5. He must not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.

6. He must help people in distress.

7. He must be a good worker.

8. He must keep himself clean in thought, speech, action, and personal habits.

9. He must respect women, parents, and his nation's laws.

10. The cowboy is a patriot.

(Feb. 1999 issue)

Referenced from this site?
http://thecowboycode.blogspot.com/

(FYI.....Gene Autry belonged to the same cult as I do. Just thought Sentry & Doolin might find that interesting.)

What are you rdscaf our conscience or something? This ain't the country and it sure ain't some small town in Minnesota from your boyhood. Those are just folksy variations on the 10 commandments. Isn't there some Christian self-help site you could post that crap on? Please and thank you.

I believe rdscaf grew up right here in Forest Park (I know his sister did at least) so what's the problem sentry.  This is the quality of life thread.  Gripe somewhere else.
