I believe parents as a whole have responsibility for howe their children turn out. There are EXCEPTIONS but this one probably isn’t one.

A generation of moral reprobates don’t just happen. Look at the divorce in this country and now look at the youth of today.

I have been to every tea party in Palm Beach County and sorry but I saw a sea of white hair. I asked myself the question, where are your CHILDREN and grand children? On the videos of Glen Beck’s national rally, I saw a sea of white hair. There are EXCEPTONS to that as well but in general, we have problems.

If I checked the divorce rate at those tea parties I wouldn’t be surprised to see that it is just as high as that of the nation in general - too high.

The point is that regardless of our politiccal party and even in the church, we as a nation have failed miserably and we have an offspring of indoctrinated ingrates, the majority of whom gave us this imposter of a President.

That is our legacy. Charlie Sheen is Martin’s legacy and I’ll bet his home life wasn’t so grand. We are culpable to some degree.

My wife and I have nine siblings, and they in turn have many children.

Mostly California, but also Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Texas.

When we visit, I try to get a sense of how the younger ones are turning out, value wise.

Mostly conservative; more so as they grow older.

Western strain of conservatism (leaning libertarian) which coincides with the Reagan-Goldwater legacy. Milton Friedman, if you need a political philosopher of the current/recent era.

Little to no Bible thumping.

Yeah, I blame Society, too.
