I am not a great fan of Jessie Jackson, however, way before anyone ever heard of Obama, Jackson in one of his speeches said, and I am quoting as best as I can remember, "you are not a man if you make a baby, you are a man if you can raise, teach and care for this baby."

No one is taking responsibility for their actions....what a disastrous society as the march goes further and further down into the pit. Scary.

"Leaders" who say one thing and do another are not leaders. They are liars and hypocrites and should be ignored as they have no integrity or credibility.
Dads matter.

After the Sandy Hook tragedy, Obama, much of his party and much of the media have been calling for further gun control and advocating "common sense" measures such as limiting the number of rounds in a magazine, "universal" background checks and restrictions on "assault weapons."

But there is an 800-pound politically incorrect elephant in the room.
