All those free condoms (and the philosophy that is responsible for them) are really working....right?
This is greasing the skids into the abyss for the US.
Of course, if you rail about it, you are accused of being anti woman, racist, or someother slander. This is the me me me generation on steroids.
...40% illigitimate is better than I would have thought...in heavy urban areas like Baltimore the figure is 65% and 28 year old grandmothers are commonplace.
I am not surprised by that statement.
The role of Fathers is lost now, and they've successfully instilled the "single parent" term into the Lexicon for everyone, via the Liberal teachings in public schools, and via Liberal Professors in academia.
The total dumbing-down of society has forced (via psychological indoctrination) to consider "tolerance and sensitivity", while taxing the crap out of us FORCING Mothers to go to work to have sufficient family income to exist. Unless, of course, you are one of the fourth generation welfare lot who merely understand that they don't need to work, they don't care WHO fathers their children, but will live off the earnings of others from the Socialists/Communists who buy their votes with others' money.
The nuclear family is near-extinct, too, and TV's and Daycare have replaced parenting. The ONLY values these slut-mother-only-families learn are how to game the system and exist.
Just need to crank up the abortion mills is all.
SARCASM!! I am being sarcastic.
Though on some forums that would be taken as sage advice.
Marraige is penalized in America, financially anyway. And religion isn’t strong enough to override that.
...yep...unfortunately, inner cities are powerful voting blocs and their population is exploding...ACORN was specifically created to harness that political power.
We need to bring back literacy tests
We need to bring back poll tax.
Dan Quayle was right!
And the institution is mocked and turned into weird caricature. Men put on dresses, makeup and kiss and our State proclaims them married.
Many babies are born out of wedlock because of the government benefits available if you are an unwed mother. My niece told me many of her friends in high school purposely got pregnant because they wanted the government money. Unfortunately, she is pregnant and unmarried as well.
The failing of the family will be America’s downfall.
I think in the early 1960s the illegitimacy rate for Blacks was 30 percent. Now it is about 70 percent.
For Whitey it was about 10 percent in 1960 and has now grown to 30 percent. Give it a few more decades with more welfare and entitlements and 70 percent should be reached in a decade or two.
Homeschoolers are doing fine...and we could start to turn all of this around if we stopped giving our children to the liberal-controlled government schools to be corrupted.
The bastards! They killed Kenny!
