Sounds like you had more interest in your sex life than you did in getting an education. How about we raise the moral value bar instead of lowering it. Sex is now all about recreation and not the intended purpose of pro-creation. Promiscuity is rampart, STD's are prevelent, it is a shame that self control and personal responsibility have been tossed to the wind.

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...
