Skip to comments.The Great Society: In Ferguson, MO
Posted on 08/27/2014 5:20:39 PM PDT by grumpa
Welcome. We have arrived in the Great Society foisted on us by liberals from FDR to LBJ, who holds title to the vision. It is marked by:
a race-based underclass with 13-18% black unemployment and 109 million people overall on welfare across the country
broad disrespect for the legal process and institutions such as the church
lawlessness in school classrooms and on our streets
75-80% of the homes in the ghettos with children are fatherless
As we slouch toward Gomorrah, there is a segment of our societyincreasingly affecting all of our culturethat has no concept of objective moral values or delayed gratification so important for progress. It is a culture that confuses poverty with indolence, statesmanship with politics, rights with demands, and truth with expediency.
I make no judgment against either party to the most unfortunate death of the young black man in Ferguson. I trust justice to prevail. But the aftermath of the incident deserves judgmentincluding the comments by the Democrat governor of Missouri and the U.S. attorney general who essentially committed jury tampering, and the outrageous response by others like Al Sharpton who foment division, racism, and lawlessness.
As Milton Friedman said, One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.
Liberals, YOU and your utopian ideologies are the cause of this mess.
There are three great threats to our way of life: (1) Progressive Socialism, (2) Secular Humanism, and (3) Radical Islamism.
Liberalism embraces the first two of these and is soft on the third. WAKE UP AMERICA.
