All gone now. You must go to college to , it seems, get a welfare check. The people sitting in the state unemployment offices can barely speak English and they are signing up for checks. All this whole technology is moving at an ever rapid pace creating robotics to replace even more people. ...and there is not one damned person in government who has an answer, or even, I think, wants and answer. You see, technology and illegal immigration will not change the jobs of 435 people in Congress, with all the benefits which they reap from one term. There is no incentive, there is no honor, there is no patriotism left in our country, except amongst people like many who come here and typing away at our PCs, I fear, will do nothing for our country.

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...
