"Actors openly encourage hatred against the country where they became rich and famous." Really? And how is this different than Hawkins and other "conservatives" who whine about our degeneration? How is this "conservative" rhetoric different than the Soviet rhetoric accusing us of degeneration?

You are seriously confused or just being dense on purpose. Conservatives want people to have morals, and Hollywood says there should be none. By the way, the children of people who get married do much better than the children of those who don't.

That's silly. Who in Hollywood says we should have no morals?

"By the way, the children of people who get married do much better than the children of those who don't."

That, even if true, is irrelevant -- unless you think big government should step in.

Or children from broken homes can become President of the USA. So draw too many conclusions. Besides, your "statistics" look bogus and subjective. Got a reference?

Btw, I've been married 37 years. We were always there for our sons. So don't assume I'm against a solid family.

It's true that the "good old days" weren't always good, but we should also remember that our belief that we're completely superior to previous generations of Americans doesn't even remotely square with reality. It's fine to pat ourselves on the back for being wealthier, more educated and considerably less racist than we used to be, but we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that those less educated, backward people in their antiquated clothes were head and shoulders better than we are in a myriad of other ways. We should remember that the real problem isn't having a problem; it's having a...
