When someone asks me what makes me conservative, my answer is always very simple: I believe family values are more important than government. I think that children are a reflection of the way they grew up, so when I hear of someone becoming a drug addict or eating someone’s face after ingesting bath salts, the first question I ask myself is ‘What happened to that person to make them go down that road?’ Some issues are genetic, and some things just happen by chance, but I believe that the majority of a person’s lifestyle is attributable to their upbringing. And it seems as though that traditional upbringing is disappearing.
Today’s world is a mess; people are abusing prescription drugs left and right, outstanding credit card bills litter American mailboxes, unemployment runs rampant, entitlements are expanding, and the government is setting a horrible example by spending outside of their means.
To show some more signs America’s society is breaking down, here is a list I came across at endoftheamericandream.com:
#1 Cannibalism is alive and well in America apparently. Down in Miami the other day, police shot a man who was literally eating the face off of another man….
#2 Down in Florida recently, a crazed doctor spit a mouthful of blood on state troopers during a DUI arrest. It is quite frightening when even doctors are displaying this kind of psychotic behavior….
#3 A 22-year-old pregnant woman survived after being bound, driven to Detroit, set on fire and shot early Saturday morning. The woman, who was nine-months pregnant, had returned from a movie with her boyfriend and dropped him off at his house in Warren when she was approached from behind, Warren police Sgt. Dave Geffert said.
#4 In Detroit, famous Pastor Marvin Winans’ SUV remains missing as of Thursday morning and so do the men who punched, kicked and robbed the famous gospel singer. Winans was pumping gas Wednesday afternoon at a Detroit Citgo station on the corner of Linwood and Davison when at least two men ambushed him.
#5 Would you like to have your lips stapled shut and then be tortured with a power tool? Well, that is exactly what happened to one man in Utah recently.
#6 A 26-year-old high school teacher in Minnesota has been charged with sending naked photos of herself to the phone of a 17-year-old male student. Did she really expect to get away with that?
#7 For some teachers, one student simply is not enough. A 33-year-old art teacher in Arizona was recently charged with having sex with four of her male students.
#8 Many of our major cities are turning into war zones. According to WGN, a total of 25 people were shot in a single night in Chicago recently.
#9 These days, most people do not seem to care if you are pregnant. Up in Seattle, police tasered a pregnant woman three times after she refused to sign a ticket for a traffic violation.
#10 Down in Georgia, a police officer recently kicked a woman who was nine months pregnant directly in the stomach. His superiors in the local police department defended his actions.
#11 A Philadelphia cop was arrested over allegations that he abducted a 14-year-old girl, sexually assaulted her and made her watch him have sex with a prostitute. Police found Anthony Dattilo, 36, at a motel in the Bensalem area of the city Wednesday while responding to a possible abduction, according to the Bucks County Courier Times. Dattilo, a 12-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, is reportedly in custody at the Bucks County prison on $500,000 bail.
#12 A Superior Court judge sentenced a man to 40 years and 8 months to life in state prison Friday for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old female relative on Christmas Eve while family members slept in other rooms, calling his conduct “depraved.”Jorge Miguel Gallegos, 38, of Santa Ana, was convicted in April of six felony counts, including sexual assault, lewd acts on a child under 14, and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.
#13 Everyone knew that sickos and perverts were going to flock to the TSA so that they could legally touch people, but this is ridiculous. It was recently discovered that a Catholic priest that left the ministry because of allegations of sexual abuse has been hired by the TSA and works as a supervisor at an airport in Philadelphia.
#14 One recent study found that 5.3 percent of all inmates in state prisons have had a sexual encounter with prison staff.
#15 Down in Arizona, authorities recently removed dozens of cats from the home of an elderly woman for the third time. This time, there were 64 cats living with her. In the past, authorities had discovered that the woman would make a “feline stew concoction” with any of the cats that ended up dying.
#16 You know that things are getting bad when people are stealing from ambulances….
Spotsylvania County emergency officials are working to secure drug compartments in ambulances following a recent string of thefts.
Since April, two thefts have occurred at one rescue station and a third at another station. Morphine and other drugs were taken from locked ambulance compartments.”
“They went in, they started going everywhere in the store, grabbing things and then they just run out. And I knew that they didn’t buy it because they just run out,” Kendra Mellerson said. “They ran that way and they ran that way. And the guy was trying to come out and stop them but they couldn’t because there was so many.”
After some kids ran away, a store manager blocked the door to keep the rest of the kids from leaving. But those kids got so mad that the door was blocked, they started punching the store manager.
“Yes, they really started hitting that guy and he couldn’t keep getting beat on so he eventually let them out. And then they just ran,” Mellerson said.”
#18 It isn’t just people on the street that are behaving like psychos. In fact, a series of seven scientific studies has found that “upper class people” behave more unethically than “lower class people” do.
#19 As society is breaking down, more Americans than ever are taking pills to dull the pain. In fact, it is being reported that Americans take 80 percent of all the pain pills that are sold in the world each year. Sadly, many of these pain pills are extremely addictive and cause people to want to commit crimes so that they can finance their pain pill habits.
#20 In 2008, a majority of American voters chose to send a radical Marxist con man who endlessly smoked marijuana during his early adult years to the White House. In fact, according to author David Maraniss, Obama and his friends smoked so much weed that they were known as “the Choom Gang”….
As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called “TA,” short for “total absorption.” To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled.
According to Maraniss, Obama took his weed smoking very seriously….
Along with TA, Barry popularized the concept of “roof hits”: when they were chooming in the car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.”
Now, #20 may be a little bit of a stretch for calling Obama a full-on Marxist, but regardless of your opinion, it can’t be far off. The rest of this list is just disturbing. People have been crazy for centuries upon centuries, but it seems as if this is becoming more and more common. It is as if people think they will be successful just because they live in America, but people have always had to work hard and make large sacrifices to achieve the American dream.
Let’s hope Americans start working towards making things happen instead of thinking they will just happen without hard work.
