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.1 2
