While Krugman was reminiscing with pleasure over the high taxes in the 1950s, I sensed a bit of irony in that liberals usually love to say, "It's 2012, not 1950," when it comes to moral issues. However, Krugman threw this in, ensuring he made clear his opposition to the morals of the 1950s:

There are, let’s face it, some people in our political life who pine for the days when minorities and women knew their place, gays stayed firmly in the closet and congressmen asked, “Are you now or have you ever been?” The rest of us, however, are very glad those days are gone. We are, morally, a much better nation than we were. Oh, and the food has improved a lot, too.

Hahahahahaha! Morally better?

There are 1.3 million unborn children aborted a year. The group that does the bulk of these is funded by taxpayer dollars, and they teach a graphic sex ed program to kids in schools. Forty percent of the children in this country are born out of wedlock. Some put the divorce rate as high as 50%. People want to redefine marriage, adopt children to gay couples, and teach the gay lifestyle to kids in schools. America has a multibillion dollar porn industry. America has a growing STD rate. The advent of computer and phone technology has enabled more hookups, adultery, and easy access to porn than ever before. Reality TV is filled with desperate, attention seeking people who are getting paid to act a fool. The Billboard charts are full of songs with foul language, sex, disrespect of women, etc. Even scripted movies and TV is filled is filled with cheap sex jokes, foul langauge, and violence because it's easier for the writers to do that than write an intelligent script, and the masses lap it up. We campaign against bullying, but yet we hear about suicides of bullied kids frequently. Adding to that, go on the internet, say something the oh so tolerant left disagrees with, and you'll see how against bullying they are. God is being continually kicked out of the public square. People are ridiculed for conservative Christian beliefs. Conservative Muslims get know heat for being conservative, though, even though they are much more conservative. Secular humanism and moral relativity are the religion of the masses. Now churches are being forced to fund birth control against their beliefs.

Things are getting better? Maybe to Krugman this is progress, and things are getting better, and that's just sad.

41% illegitimate birth rate.
53% among mothers under 30.
Was 4% when I was growing up.

$750,000,000,000 Federal to support these illegitimate ‘families’.
Another $250,000,000,000 from the states.

We could almost balance the Federal budget if we simply returned to the 1950’s method of getting married BEFORE we pop out children, and then supporting the children in a two parent family.

But, there I go with my hate speech again!
