America’s greatness is increasingly threatened by those who believe mediocrity will make everyone equal. President Obama doesn’t even believe in American exceptionalism. His view of America is that we are only one of many countries and he is trying his best to lower standards across the board so we can be the same as Greece.
This insanity is apparent in the conduct of our culture over the last fifty years. The slide down the slippery slope of unethical and immoral behavior has reached run away speed but many think by continuing to ignore or deny this fact, we will somehow recover on our own.
The following are actual headlines from recent newspapers.
The Detroit News: “30,000 college students kicked out of food aid program in Michigan.” The state will save $75 million a year, but what the heck were they on food stamps for in the first place? Michigan did an end run around Federal rules so almost every student was eligible.
In response to the increasingly national problem of flash mobs composed of black kids, the Mayor of Philadelphia actually took a stand: “Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” — spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts.”
But how did this get out of hand in the first place?
In Wisconsin over the weekend, a hoard of black kids attacked only whites at the State Fair. Why? “WDJT-TV, CBS 58 Milwaukee reports 24 arrests were made Thursday night, after hundreds of people started fighting in and around the fairgrounds. The arrests were made within the grounds in West Allis, Wis. Seven Wisconsin State Fair police officers were injured in the attacks, WDJT reported. One officer was hit with a weapon, while another suffered a concussion. Both were hospitalized. This article and an accompanying story have been sanitized to remove the racial component. The first stories clearly stated it was a mob of black teens attacking only white kids. What gives?
If America doesn’t come to grips with the reverse racism that is growing across the country, where will we be in ten or twenty years?
If we cannot get a grip on entitlement programs, we will continue to produce generations that have no idea how to fit into society and will become violent if the government doesn’t provide for their every want.
America is not alone in these problems; other countries are facing trials of their own. Because of the lax immigrant policies of Great Britain, there are entire sections of cities that declaim “we are under Sharia law.”
“A Monroe (Connecticut) woman says her Facebook and e-mail accounts were hacked by a man who wanted nude photos of her,” says WTNH.com.
Al Gore, the man who “invented the internet,” can’t stand to hear anyone disagree with him about so-called “global warming” which has been debunked but renamed “climate change.” According to today’s issue of The Hill, “climate skeptics peddle bull$#!%.”
Michael Moore recommended jailing the head of the S&P because he didn’t like the the U.S. credit rating downgrade.
What ties all these disparate stories together? Lack of morals, ethics and judgment.
What do we expect from college students who think gaming the system isn’t an ethical and moral dilemma? What do we expect from young blacks who are not held accountable for their own hate crimes and racism?
I’ve always thought growing up in the 50s was magical. We can get there again but it will take tremendous effort.
Until we expect the best from everybody, we will get it from nobody.
