A friend told me yesterday that the answer to all of these gas problems is to get all of these gas driven cars off the highway and force everyone to drive electric cars.
Unfortunately, no matter how I tried to explain it to him that this isn't a solution to our problems and why; that was his answer and he was sticking to it. Ok....so I gave up trying and moved on to taxes. We both agreed that Obama was right. Everyone has to pay their fair share; so we want that 45% or more that pay no federal taxes to start paying. Then we can look at what the "fair share" of everyone else should be.
At any rate, there have been some issues this week that stick in my craw. Leftism is a form or insanity. Why? Because their solutions are the same solutions that have made the problems they were supposed to fix worse. Insane because they actively work against solutions that do work. i.e. traditional values. Worse yet, they deliberately work against the history that shows this to be true.
An ariticle appeared on Front Page today called Bastard Nation saying;
"The New York Times reports that 53 percent of babies delivered to women under the age of 30—the prime motherhood demographic—enter the world without their parents married to one another. But it’s not the rise of illegitimacy that scandalizes sex scribbler Katie Roiphe. It is the newspaper’s “peculiar moral undertone.”So…other countries who have embraced irresponsible behavior are “ahead” of the United States? In what? Stupidity? Those who spout this claptrap have lost their minds.
“[M]arriage is very rapidly becoming only one way to raise children,” Roiphe explains at Slate, noting that “other countries are obviously way ahead of the United States in incorporating a rational recognition of the vicissitudes of love, and the varieties of family life, into cultural attitudes toward unmarried parents.” The peculiar immoral undertone in Roiphe’s plea to deny children a two-parent home stems in part from her bringing two children into the world fathered by different men, neither of whom remains in a relationship with the writer. The personal is political."
Historically, traditionally, biologically and rationally a family is made up of a man, a women and their children. No matter how the left works to destroy this with their support of homosexuals adopting and becoming a “family”, or embrace the concept that sexually irresponsible conduct of men and women that results in illegitimacy. We absolutely know this conduct is not conducive to a sable society.
“In 1963, as Pres. Lyndon Johnson was launching the War on Poverty, 7 percent of American children were born outside marriage. White House staffer Daniel Patrick Moynihan, U.S. Senator from New York, warned the nation of the calamities associated with the growing number of out-of-wedlock births. For more than 40 years, our society has ignored Moynihan’s warnings. Despite the transparent linkages among poverty, social problems, and disintegration of the family, the liberal intelligentsia has watched the steady collapse of marriage in low-income communities with silent indifference.“
The left works at destroying the nuclear family. Why? This forces more and more people to need government assistance; this grows government; this puts more power into the hands of unelected bureaucrats; this destroys individual freedom; because noting grows the “welfare state like the disappearance of marriage.” What is the solution to this growing problem from the left? More public sex education and free condoms! That has been their solution for decades and the problem grows. The reality is this: “The statist Left is not content to merely watch marriage die; it seeks to nail the coffin lid tightly shut.”
How can this not be considered insane? That quote from Albert Einstein where he says that expecting different results when doing the same things over and over again is a form of insanity has been appearing in more articles these last couple of years. Well? Do we get it? Apparently not because we keep doing and promoting all the things that destroy that which is traditional, responsible and the basis for a stable society; the nuclear family!
That makes them insane and evil; because evil is as evil does. Dennis Prager says that the left isn’t evil, just wrong. Wrong! If you perpetrate evil you are evil. If you aid and support those who perpetrate evil you share in their guilt. That is a basic principle of common law. We really do need to get this; the left is wrong, insane and evil!
