A look at the news on any given day and the trash that fills it show the steady decline of morality and decency. We see people calling 9 11 because their fast food order is slow to arrive. Others punch out the server if something annoys them. Self absorption is the order of the day.
Corporations and banks steal and cheat the public and not much is done to stop them.Divorce is a national pastime and dirty language is par for the course wherever you go.
I have actually seen people curse G-d in internet 'shorthand' that is so popular. It is so common that I once was horrified to see it used on a religious forum. G-d is out and do your own thing replaces him and his guidance. "In G-d we Trust" is an empty phrase. In fact G-d and his commandments have been placed in dusty , dank basements for storage.
The super rich use America as a cash cow while sending business and jobs overseas and closing down American manufacturing, once the envy of the world and now not even a shadow of its former self.
The widow , the orphan and the weak and the elderly are used mercilessly and cheated out of what little they have. They are thrown aside and justice is denied to them because they are poor.
Our leadership partners with other nations at the expense of our own people. Laws are enacted that work against our own citizens. Foreign law is put on a par with American law. Relativism and cultural relativity, German rationalism have perverted our view. Values are so skewed that few recognize what this means. Few see the end of self reliance and the work ethic because they don't know what it is anymore since those values are not taught anymore.
A woman sitting on the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Ginsberg, mocks the Constitution while speaking to foreigners and does so in complete confidence and arrogance. Don't replicate the Constitution she told them but look to South Africa as a great example. South Africa where whites are being butchered? How clueless and self absorbed is this woman?
It is an utter disgrace to speak that way about the nation she was hired to serve and protect and yet there she sits on the bench that is supposed to uphold the Constitution she looks down upon. She should be fired immediately. But it is okay to mock the very nation that pays your salary and supports you. It is alright to denigrate the Constitution that gives you your freedom and your job.
She looks like a demented Gerbil.
|Wee bit of snobbery|
Truth be told they simply do not care at all.
Prices on necessities are rising to the point that normal people cannot afford to feed their families as they once did, but, not much is said. The public just pays and remains quiet as food prices soar out of sight, housing becomes unaffordable and jobs are sent overseas to nations we also help support through hand outs!
Yes, we give foreign aid to China. We borrow from them, but also give them foreign aid and they steal technology from us to the tune of multiple billions of dollars all the time. Sane, moral people see the goofy weird , sick attitude behind this kind of policy.
I learned long ago to follow the money. There is usually someone's pockets bulging from such things.
China is one of the biggest economies in the world and grew at more than 9 percent over the last year. It also has loaned more than $1 trillion to the U.S. to fund its deficit-spending.
But at the same time, the U.S. sends foreign aid to China, which lawmakers of all stripes say is just plain nuts.
"Why in the world would we be borrowing money and then turn around and giving it back to the countries that we're borrowing it from?" Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma said. "If they have enough of a surplus to loan us money, they have enough of a surplus to take care of their own needs."
Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia asked the same question in a recent appearance on Fox News: "Hey, in the crisis that we're in right now, should we really be continuing to send American taxpayer dollars over to China for these purposes?"
It isn't a lot of aid -- tens of millions in bilateral aid, much more through international institutions to which the U.S. contributes.
But the question is why a nation that's competing with the U.S. economically and politically in every corner of the globe should get any money from the U.S.
Walk through any mall and hear children and teens using the most vile language you can think of freely and without embarrassment.It is now second nature to people to curse and revile. There seemingly are no limits for them. Their parents, if they even have two of them, are absent and unconcerned for the most part. Home life is missing for many as each member does his own thing.
We see gangs of kids raiding stores and stealing en masse. Their parents are no where to be seen and in most cases are not married to one another anyway. We see a generation that feels entitled to whatever they want.
The fundamental problems that America faces are not from outside.If the barbarians are at the gates it is the fault of the people inside who have allowed national morality to slide with hardly a whimper of complaint.
If there are no decent presidential candidates you can blame that on the public who don't demand strong, moral candidates but accept whatever is thrown at them and find excuses for the low morality of its leadership. G-d seems to let you have what you desire most if you are not seeking his ways. There is a saying that in the way you wish to go, you will be lead and truly America seems to be gravitating toward its lowest common denominator.
Hollywood promotes easy uninhibited sex outside marriage even for kids. It promotes what it calls alternative life styles for children barely old enough to understand who or what they are let alone make life changing decisions. Drunk, rude, drug taking stars and athletic 'heroes' dominate the news. They are held in high esteem.
Children's movies are even laden with sexual innuendo and dirty language and parents feel it is okay because it entertains them too, after all. Previous generations must be whirling in their graves.
Television offers so-called reality shows that portray all kinds of people living and doing degrading things. People are given urine to drink and willingly debase themselves for money.
The government of the people, by the people and for the people are promoters of abortion on demand as a substitute for birth control and marriage is denigrated. Broken families are portrayed in books, television and movies to be the 'norm'.
Schools are quick to deny G-d and relegate Torah, the bible, to the trash pile, in this nation where, at one time, it was the basis of education. Grammar schools taught Hebrew, Greek and Latin as a basis for higher education the purpose of which was to read your bible. Not any more.
Text books of today promote an anti-American view of history, the Constitution is trampled and put under attack and many say it needs "changing". The nation has taken on a foreign mind set it never used to have as immigration has brought more and more who refuse citizenship and opt instead to live here for the perks, giving back nothing but attitude and having a whole lot to say about a nation that they do not love enough to become part of.
America has become a just a hang out for many to take part in the freedom and money they neither vote for nor defend. Some places have even asked for a change in law to allow foreigners to vote in national elections as if this was in any way natural or right. I call these people the squatters of America.They come, they use, they take , they refuse to take the oaths of allegiance however.
I have a neighbor who has been in America for over 40 years with no intention of becoming a citizen. She needs the perks America provides her but she wants the option to bolt and run if things go south. She is not alone, as there are thousands upon thousands just like her. Seriously, why do we allow this? Where are our standards, where is our pride?
The election process has become a Hollywood style extravaganza for the super rich and the special interests who promote them.
Another evil that must be repented of is Operation Paperclip which brought many thousands of unrepentant actual Nazis to the United States and allowed them free rein in science and other areas of life. Don't think they helped us any. In fact Russia beat the USA into space because these Nazis were undermining the space program. America's moral compass was more than compromised in allowing these people into the nation.
I think America has to demand and desire a more moral and sane society before anything can even begin to improve. Change begins at home in the individual and in the family but there needs to be a national call for repentance.
