“Kids coming out of the tough neighborhoods in American cities never learn the basics of behaving in a civilized society. The school don’t bother teaching them much of anything. With no useful role models, even kids with something on the ball are condemned to life in the urban reservation. For boys that means crime and then the cemetery if they are lucky. The unlucky head off to prison. The girls are just baby mills and a conduit to send tax dollars into the ghetto so white liberals can feel special.”
Thoughts from the last couple of days:
Way long time ago when my wife and I were college, this large-scale living together before marriage thing was all the rage and talk on TV and newspapers. The argument given by all pro-fornicators was, “If you live together before marriage, you will get to know each other and decide if you want to get married.”
By that logic, all couples who lived together and then were married would not get divorced, because they already knew each other’s foibles and strengths.
The real reason people put forth the idea of living together was to give approval to shaking up and fornicating.
So, despite the idea of “We’ll learn about each other,” the number of divorces went up and up and up. A Fox News story this morning said divorced Americans in 1970 made up 2.9% of the population. Today, the number is 9.9%. The numbers are deceiving, though, since not counted were married-divorced-married people.
The Fox story was about people getting pissed off because the Pope said most marriages today are invalid, because men and women going into marriage have no intention of remaining married. Marriage idea of the last 40 years has been, if they do stay married, hey, that’s great, but if they don’t, well, that’s the way things are.
Those go along with the Z Man’s writing that kids never learn the basics of behaving in a civilized society.
If those yoots never learn, doesn’t that mean they were not taught? So, blame parents and grandparents. The yoots are innocent.
Not so, says my wife. The word is out there. She means the “Go into the world and preach the good news …” She is a big proponent of “You live with the choices you make.” And, “You cannot control everything that goes on, but you can decide what your reaction is.”
Free will carries responsibility.
