In response to a an email you’ll probably find resurfacing from Snopes (confirmed as “true” by the way) regarding bottle-bombs, blogger Chuck MacNab makes yet another great observation:
Could it be that this is just another result, among many, of the permissiveness that has been forced on our culture by liberals, especially since the 1960’s? Perhaps the liberal culture has so corrupted our children that it has confused many about the definition of criminal activity and ordinary people are no longer safe at home or at work? Certainly it has removed conscience and the awareness of ethical standards from the thought processes of many young people.
Schools, for instance, are no longer places where children are educated. Their most important function is to provide money from the community to pay for baby sitting services that are called “education.” The schools and many who work there have become spoiled brat examples of destructive activism designed to support an enhanced life-style. They have proven that they will withdraw their services and even fight in the streets to keep the power to strip communities of tax money and transfer it to themselves. They want to continue to elect school boards that vote to take advantage of low voter turnout to keep the money flowing “in the right direction.”
Citizens have only themselves to blame when they do not vote and allow these special interest groups (who do) to continue to raise taxes and transfer money to support a higher standard of living than most voters can now afford. With examples such as the screaming teachers in Wisconsin and their allies in big labor, what are children expected to learn as they observe examples of what is going on there and in their own neighborhoods? Maybe they are learning how to riot in the streets and, without a conscience, how to make cheap explosives that blow peoples fingers off? It’s time we started “connecting the dots” folks!
