  • I think the breakdown of the family unit is one of the most upsetting trends. The divorce rate is extremely high in this country, as well as the number of babies being born out of wedlock.

  • In a single word..... ENTITLEMENT

    More and more people are mistaking privileges as rights. Kids (well teens and young-immature persons) mistake parent's generosity for obligation and government mistakes our decades of silent compliance as a sign that we won't put up a fight. But then again - we did spend decades making the world we live in today, so it's no wonder that everyone from your senator, to your kids, to your waitress thinking that you OWE them something - instead of working to get beyond what they deserve. It's not just one area of the population, one genre of culture - attitudes of entitlement without consequence or hard work has become widespread. What to do? What to do?

  • How progressive our Government got without even knowing it. People are so entrenched in their own lives they don't even see whats happening. We all need to slow down and pay attention more
