In some ways, US ethics could be called better. But in the ways that count most, the ethics of the typical US citizen are worse. Thank God there are a few pockets with some level of morality. But first let's take a look at just how bad it's getting.
1. Detroit's Eternal Shame
Woman motorist jumps to her death
Onlookers cheer as bridge tragedy unfolds
By Jennifer Loven , Associated Press Writer
DETROIT -- As dozens of onlookers gathered, and some cheered, three men pulled a woman from her car, ripped off her clothes, then chased her until she either jumped or was forced off a bridge to her death. None of the 40 or so passersby tried to help Deletha Word during the confrontation that began with two minor traffic accidents early Saturday on Belle Isle, said police Sgt. John Morel.
A man who arrived late tried to rescue her from the Detroit River but couldn't reach her. The 33-year-old woman's body, missing a leg, was found several miles downstream later that morning.
Note that many other reports mention she was beaten with a car jack/crowbar:
Michigan v. Welch (4/96)
The incident stunned a nation. A woman plunges to her death in the Detroit River as a crowd of onlookers stands idly by as she is attacked.
Martell Welch was charged with murder in the August 19, 1995, drowning death of Deletha Word, who drowned after jumping into the river after Welch beat her up following a traffic accident.
The altercation began when Welch and Word were involved in a minor fender bender in the early morning hours while driving back from Belle Isle, a popular island park in the river between the United States and Canada. Just before they got to the bridge to return to the mainland, Word's car hit Welch.
Several witnesses described a brutal beating that ended with Welch threatening Word with a tire jack and saying he was going to use it to "beat her brains out."
Welch was sentanced, but what is the verdict of the onlookers? What is happening to our nation! THIS HAPPENED IN THE United States! 40 or so onlookers? Some CHEERED? If God walks out the door, I do not blame Him.

Scholarship Student Killed Newborn, Cops Say
Allegedly Suffocated Baby Girl and Put Body in Trash
A college scholarship student, whose church paid some of her tuition, has been indicted on charges of killing her baby after giving birth in a male friend's apartment and then putting the newborn girl's body in a local trash dump.
Christina Marie Fiske, 21, of Franklin was indicted by a Jackson County grand jury Monday on one count of first-degree murder, one count of felony child abuse resulting in injury and one count of concealing the birth of a child.
Yeah, it's really bad, huh? Good thing it's illegal. But how can we tell these young ladies it's no different than abortion? Our nation's sense of right and wrong is deteriorating.
3. The Tom Leykis Show
No way am I going to promote this man with a link. I listened to his radio show because, as I see it, he is a threat to this nation's soul. He tells women that they are not entitled to child support 'because they could have chosen abortion'. When I was listening a few years ago, he had women breaking down, sobbing, agreeing with him.
Leykis has a coded message system worked out for young men and women to invite lewd behavior, even though they are complete strangers. The men flash their headlights, and the women flash their breasts.
Here's what one reporter, Jeremy Reynalds, heard Leykis say during "Flash Friday"...
"To research this article, I tuned in for about an hour Friday to Leykis' show. It was worse than I ever imagined. One call was from a 10-year old who was in the car with his dad driving on a California highway hoping to see a woman expose her breasts, or "racks," as Leykis calls them. The youngster had more chance than you might imagine, as it was a "flash Friday" on Leykis' show. That's the day when Leykis encourages women to "flash" guys who are driving with their headlights on. "Leykis told listeners how "special" it was that this youngster was going to see his first "rack" along with his dad. Then as if that wasn't bad enough, Leykis asked the boy if his mother (yes, you read right, his mother) had a nice "rack."
Tom Lykis was also heavilly involved with the Seattle Incident, which we cover next.
4. The Seattle Incident.
Commuters' mood turns ugly as suicide try snarls I-5 traffic

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTERS
Passing motorists, Metro bus passengers and truck drivers hurled insults and urged a distraught woman to jump from her perch on the railing of the Interstate 5 Ship Canal Bridge Tuesday morning.
High above the Ship Canal, a distraught 26-year-old woman sits on the southbound railing of the Interstate 5 bridge yesterday morning after leaving her car. Police rushed to the scene to try to talk the 26-year-old Tacoma-area woman out of attempting suicide. But as the region's busiest freeway disintegrated into a massive traffic jam, the mood of some commuters grew ugly.
"People were yelling, 'Jump, bi###, jump!'" Seattle Police Department spokesman Clem Benton said. "Now who wants to hear that in this type of a situation?"
One Seattle radio station appeared to poke fun at the woman's predicament, peppering its live broadcast with splashdown sound effects.
Fearful that she would succumb to the taunts, police shut the freeway down in both directions at 8 a.m., snarling thousands of motorists for more than two hours. Traffic was backed up from Northgate to the West Seattle Bridge exit. Side streets quickly became clogged. The woman finally jumped, taking a 160-foot plunge into Lake Union.
Surprisingly, she survived the equivalent of a fall from a 16-story building. Last night, she was listed in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center.
Tom Leykis meddled in this matter unmercifully. He called her a 'publicity whore'. But then, he made her name public, assuming she would want to remain anonymous. He praised Seattle for having callous 'maturity'. And when a Seattle reporter berated Leykis, the Tom Leykis fans cyber-tarred-and-feathered the man with emails:

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER COLUMNIST
Tom Leykis wasted no time. Right after I wrote that he deserves a room in hell, he commanded his Radioland minions to attack, attack, attack.
Their thoughtful greetings, most of which were unfit for print, came my way by e-mail and phone after Tom blasted Seattle journalists on his national radio show Thursday. Tom singled me out, saying I had no business lambasting his decision to publicize the name of the woman who jumped from the Ship Canal Bridge.
Emperor Tom has no clothes.
Stripped, Tom is a peddler of misogyny and misinformation, a radio shock jock who promotes gross simplifications as facts and confuses shrill tones with dialogue.
In short, he's a symbol of what is wrong with our modern culture -- cynicism has trumped optimism, crudeness has beat down class.
It is debatable, however, whether the woman, filled with mental anguish and pain, is a public figure who should have her name plastered before the public. And for what? To satisfy a radio personality's quest for ratings under the cloak of the right to know?
Yeah, Tom Leykis is evil, all right. But he has many followers, and that's what is scary about him. Then again, that is no worse than the rock band, KISS [once called Kids In Service of Satan, now called Knights in Service of Satan] or ACDC. Look at all their followers, sheep to the slaughter.
6. The Good in America: I promised to write about the good in America. I lied. After all, that's SOP in the US these days. Yes we have good in America. But the good is neutered. The wicked swagger boldly across this land, unchecked.
Conclusion: Evil is alive and well in the US. We have people openly calling themselves satanists. We have children more angry about the killing of animals than of people. We have sodomists as scout leaders, teachers, and even a sodomizing Bishop who abandoned his family. God is almost out the door, ladies and gentlemen. It's amazing we are still as blessed as we are.
Some of you think God is a fairy tale. By Wednesday evening, God willing, I will provide compelling evidence that God is no fairy tale, because the Bible is the most amazing book ever written. There are miraculous gems in the Bible. There is no excuse to be an atheist when you see it for yourself.
The Word of [El Elyon] Lord Almighty God Most High who created the Heavens and the Earth and the whole Universe [Cosmos] and possesses them and sustains them by His Power, is Might and His Glory. Written by the Holy Spirit of God through His covenant children of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob [Israel] primarily to Israel and concerning Israel. The Law and the Prophets; the history and poetry; even the New Covenant [Testament].
Many hundreds of prophesies fulfilled down to the very last and smallest detail. Many more prophesies yet to be fulfilled concerning His covenant people Israel.
Consider the mislabeled coming "Battle of Armageddon". It is not the Battle of Armageddon, but the Battle For Jerusalem. Armageddon is just a staging area.
Since 1967 Jerusalem is now back under control of the Israelites. The time for Jerusalem to be trodden under the feet of the Gentiles is now over.
There are those that are calling for a "Palestinian State" with Jerusalem divided. This will not happen. Among those calling for this Palestinian State and division is the "Quartet" made up of Russia, The European Union, The United Nations and non other than our United States Department of State. Included is even our beloved President...a Christian that should know better.
Our President calls the religion of "spirit of anti-Christ that is now come into the world" better known as Islam, "the religion of peace" and he and our government even support it by funding the Palestinians. By the way, "anti-Christ" means "to replace Christ" more than it means "to be against Christ". That describes Islam to perfectly.
The nations will gather together to make war against Jerusalem. Will our nation be in it with "the Quartet"? Or will we fight along side Israel when push really comes to shove? Unfortunately, the Bible focuses it's prophesies on Israel and not on the United States. I don't have the answer to that question.
Almighty God Himself said: "I Am the Lord, I change not" and Paul said "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever".
First come the warnings: floods, drought, tornadoes, hurricanes, pestilence and fires. God may not directly do these things, but as in the case of Job, He has created the destroyer to destroy. Is God evil or unjust? Never! On the other hand, will God let His Will and plans be thwarted or even frustrated? No again!
The question then is: do we heed the warnings or do we continue on in our sin [meaning missing the mark or bull's-eye of the target] and the warnings get more severe to the point of all-out judgement? Or, will we humble ourselves pray and repent and seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways, so that He will hear from Heaven and forgive us and heal our land?
I don't know the answer to that question either
We now have a choice: "life or death, blessing or cursing". Will we declare as Joshua "as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord"?
We as a nation The United States of America may end up as did the others nations that made up the statue of Daniel: Babylonian Empire destroyed and gone; The Medo-Persian Empire defeated and destroyed; The Greek Empire defeated and destroyed and The Roman Empire defeated and gone, but for some remnants of which we are made up from...
We have a choice. I pray that it is the right one, because when the salt has lost it's saltiness, it is good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled under the feet of men.
End of diatribe or as Drudge says:
There's a simple reason for that, and it's very much akin to the reason why only a tiny percentage (<5%) of people who go forward to "make a decision" at a Billy Graham crusade are still in church 5 years later.
