It seems like everyday there is something new that makes you want to grab your head in excruciating pain and ask if the whole world has gone mad. The latest offender is Abercrombie and Fitch. They are now selling padded push up swimsuit tops to girls as young...
Is this another Winning The Future moment?
There is only one explanation for this. That is a total collapse of morality in this country.
When we start talking about morality, a mental image, thanks to the media, pops into Americans’ collective memory. It is the image of someone taking a two-ton Bible and thumping some really cool person with it. The left is always ready to object to others (namely conservatives) “forcing their morality” on others. Implied in that message is that liberals do not force their morality on anyone. That, like almost everything else we get from the left is not true.
Morality is a set of rules that we as a society agree to live by. America’s rules generally come from about five thousand years of Judeo-Christian beliefs. They have worked pretty well, for the most part.
What the left never says is, there is a battle of morality going on. There always will be. One side is always going to force its morality on the other. The majority will force its morality on the minority.
There is nothing wrong with morality. In fact, morality is a good thing. Morality teaches us not to kill each other. Morality teaches us not to steal from each other. Morality teaches us to be kind to animals and small children. Morality also has a sexual component, which drives the left nuts when you start talking about it.
Marriage is a pretty good institution. It has worked well as one man and one woman since before this country was founded. It is not a freak show for two men, three women and a dog.
Morality works pretty good for this country. In America, unlike many other countries, murders in the streets are pretty rare. Men do not victimize women with impunity as they do in other countries. Children are protected and treasured in this country. They are not treated as sex objects, except by a few degenerates and morality says we do not tolerate those type of people.
The left has made a war on morality for the last sixty years. Perhaps we should ask how that is working for them? What is the greatest indicator for poverty? Having a child out of wedlock. What are the three rules that if you will follow, you are almost guaranteed to avoid poverty?
Do not have child until you get married. Do not get married until you at least graduate from High School and stay off drugs.
Morality has its benefits.
Instead media outlets such as MTV glorify being a single teen mom or other bad behavior as exemplified by the shows, “Teen Mom” and “Jersey Shore.”
Unfortunately, the people at Abercrombie and Fitch think eight year olds are proper sex objects. Twenty years ago, something like this would not have happened. There would have been public outrage. Now, with the loss of morality, we are so desensitized, only a few raise a ruckus about this. As we continue down this road, is it any wonder we are seeing record numbers of cases of child porn and child sexual abuse?
The left, as a part of its war on America, has made a war on morality. Abercrombie and Fitch’s latest offering is proof that war has also been lost.
All 18 year old man/boys should serve in the military. Reinstate the draft. Woman serve if they choose. With the breakdown of the American family, collaspe of the schools, and drugs, too many kids have no direction.
Military isn't like it used to be and not all that great when it was. Teaches children discipline to fall into rules and kill. Discipline and moral structure starts with the family.
Pray for our troops, who are at risk being stranded and overwhelmed by our enemies.
YES! Morality starts in the home! Best Place is the bible and teach Boys and girls that sex is fine when you are married and have a ring on you're finger and that Marriage is between Man and Woman not Man and man or woman and Woman. That sort is Perversion and simply animals doing what animals do!
Life is valuable and that if you are going to have a baby, you are willing to take responsibility for it.
The Ten Commandments was given for a reason! God gave them to show our inability to keep them and to point us to his son who was the only one who could keep all of them and that He and He alone is the one able to save all who call on his name.
That Work is good and if a man won't work and is lazy, He should not eat!
Values, Morality, these are things that have been lost because the Government took God out of our Schools and Parents failed to do what they were responsible to do.
Make sure they understand the Constitution first..... Specially the part " SUPPORT AND DEFEND AGAINST FOREIGN AND " DOMESTIC TERRORIST"
MMmm I seem to know one somewhere.... what's his name? Oh Ya! Obama!
That word vacated our language decades ago. Manners, politeness, civility, respecting your elders have all been replaced with political correctness. Since the Liberal led protests of the 60's and 70's promoted disestablishmentarianism we have seen a failing nation grasping for direction. A nation built on God given Rights, Justice, Liberty, Freedom and individualism has been reduced to a cesspool of entitlements, social programs and unsustainable government expansion trampling our Constitution and social, moral, cultural and spiritual beliefs. We can't even recite the Pledge of Allegiance or allow our children to display the American flag in school because it may ignite racial tensions. Soldiers returning from Vietnam were jeered and spit on by the radical Liberal Progressive machine in broad daylight and the media not only supported it, they promoted it.
The Left has no morals. This is but a part of their grand scheme of social justice and empowering their collective agenda. What level of morality was recently exhibited in the violent protests in Wisconsin? Teachers blatantly neglecting their responsibility to stay in the classroom and teach our undereducated children. Dragging the very children, they are supposed to be teaching morality, out into their protests and the children didn't even know why they were out there. Doctors fraudulently giving out fake excuses for the very people who demand we respect their collective bargaining privileges. The Wisconsin Democratic leadership abrogating their duty to stay in legislation by fleeing the state like rats in a sinking ship. Indiana's Democrats are still the Party of AWOL. The 111th Democratic Congress flagrantly bribing, extorting and fraudulently manipulating the Constitution behind closed doors to force legislation that the majority of Americans were against. A Department of Justice that selectively chooses what they want to represent based on racial, cultural or political agendas. And finally a president who has become the most divisive leader in the history of our great country doesn't even have the cojones to provide a simple birth certificate.
This is no longer allowed and has been replaced with complacency, ambivalence and distrust in a most dysfunctional manner. Kids no longer open doors for the elderly, they laugh at them. Girl Scouts selling cookies are harassed by the police because they didn't pull a permit. Children bullying other children to the point of suicide. Parents encouraging their children to fight on their front lawn. And of course when any disagreement occurs the first response is,,,sue 'em!
Surprisingly the failure of morality isn't even a hidden problem. Last year a Gallup Poll showed that 76% of Americans saying moral values in the United States are getting worse; while 14% say they are getting better.
The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.
RONALD REAGAN, speech for National Association of Evangelicals, March 8, 1983
We need to heed these great words and dig deep in our souls and hearts and seek guidance from the only true leader of the free world, our Almighty God.
America's moral legacy depends on it.
To blame our country's morality issues on the left is absurd and hypocritical. I'm sure I will be called a communist or socialist or any other negative word after this post (but probably nothing that actually refutes this), but I think it's time we face the truth and take responsibility for our actions. For example, " Do not have child until you get married. Do not get married until you at least graduate from High School and stay off drugs." Last time I checked, Bristol and Sarah Palin are one of us. Morality starts with the family: Newt Gingrich cheated on his first two wives with his second and third wives, respectively, and to my knowledge, he is very much a conservative. As TPN shared several weeks ago, approximately 53% of Americans now support same-sex marriage. Based on many comments by TPN members, and considering basic statistics, there is a very clear overlap between some of these people, and conservatives and Tea Party members here. It's fine to point fingers at the left for certain things however when we simply ignore our own members' actions and beliefs, credibility is lost.
Let's keep the fingers pointed at the real catalysts here, A&F and the parents who allow their children to buy these tops.
Yes,you are right to point out the hipocritical statements,however,you are DEAD WRONG! TWO Wrongs never make a RIGHT!You are right Do not have a CHILD(not a blob of tissue,fetus,an unnamed what? something you would rather not deal with?) unless you are married,I rememder this,don't get married until you graduate High School,remember that ,too.And the BIG one TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS!ABSOLUTLY!This is what this generation of whinners have forgotten!2PS's here,1 Yes,dumb A**Parents,SAY NO! 2(a joke,for levity)What is the difference between a puppy and a liberal?When apuppy grows up he stops whinning!
