Case in point..the ADA was supposed to end discrimination against the disabled. It has been so grossly misapplied that it has created a class of people that, once hired can now declare "I can show up when I want and do what I damn well please. Because I have (fill in the name of a medical condition, real or imagined here) I'll run to a lawyer if you try to discipline me". The disabled are now hired in fewer numbers.

1) Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly percentage wise on just about any and every scale imaginable including substance abuse, teenage pregnancies, suicide rates, criminality and homelessness.

2) Many people are becoming so childlike in their dependence on the government that they can't save for their own retirement, escape from an oncoming hurricane, or even purchase their own birth control without the government handling it for them.

3) Our legal system encourages frivolous lawsuits, is punitively expensive...
