The welfare system undermines families by not giving assistance to those with husbands or fathers. The enticements of welfare are numerous. The children grow up without fathers, the boys becoming violent teenagers and the girls promiscuous and candidates for welfare!

(1) I went through the (white) public school system in Washington, D.C. when it was racially segregated, and Dunbar High School was one of the leading high schools in the country. The schools were excellent, whether white or colored. Our teachers were older women who had gone into teaching when it was one of the only occupations intelligent women could go into. (2) Alas, the administrators now run the schools and do a bad job of it.

The term "multiculturalism" was invented by Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, to refer to the Canadian situation of French-speaking Quebec and the rest of English-speaking Canada. It has developed into a nonsensical notion that all "cultures" are equally good - human sacrificing Aztecs and pacifist Amish.

The "War between the States," the Civil War, was solely about slavery. To say that it was about "states' rights" is an excuse - for slavery - since the only "states' right" which the Confederates wanted was the right to have slavery. The Confederates started the Civil War by firing on Fort Sumter. President Abraham Lincoln knew something about the causes of the Civil War - it was the institution of slavery.

President Obama has built nothing on his own except his career. He did not build the automobile - Henry Ford did that, he did not invent the computer, like the MacIntosh, Stevie Jobs did that.

The Confederacy seceded from the Union because it was defending slavery. It started the Civil War by firing on Fort Sumpter. If you are trying to defend the Confederacy you are defending the institution of slavery.

Sex and the Military

I read that most of the sexual assaults in the military are from homosexual men attacking other men.
"Gay marriage" is ridiculous and dishonest. Adults can live with whomever they want, with or without sexual relations (except for incest), and they can make whatever financial arrangements they want with whomever they want. So why call homosexual relationships "marriage"? Marriage is between members of the opposite sex, ultimately for purposes of reproduction. Society has an interest in having children and raising them properly. It has no interest whatsoever in having homosexuals living together. Do we want homosexuals to adopt children? No.

The cause of children being born without fathers - the fundamental cause of youngsters going astray - is welfare policies. The welfare policies penalize marriage and make it attractive not to work.

Postmodern Prudes

It is not merely 4000 years of tradition against so-called "gay marriage." It is the millions (or billions) of years since sexual reproduction among animals evolved. So-called "gay marriage" is ridiculous and dishonest. It is dishonest since adults can live with other adults, with or without sexual relations, and can make financial arrangements as they see fit. Society has an interest in marriage, since children come from marriage; it has no interest at all in whether homosexuals live together, permanently or temporarily. Is James Hormel, the politically active homosexual, behind the ludicrous push for "gay marriage"?
