How is America responsible for this sub-culture? In the last century we established welfare to help those who had temporarily run out of options and
needed help short term. Too too many took advantage and lived on it rather than do for themselves. How is America responsible for that? What do we
do, end welfare and put a stop to it for those who really need it?
Federal minimum wage is $5.15 per hour. At a 40 hour week rate, those who work for minimum wage receive less than $11,000 a year. Like the Federal
wage and hour law, State law often exempts particular occupations or industries from the minimum labor standard generally applied to covered
employment. Many people work for less than minimum wage. The temptation to do nothing while collecting money from the government is
America is more concerned with dumping massive amounts of dollars into big corporation and throwing a few small handouts to the poor, rather than
investing in education, healthcare, childcare and nutrition for the poor. Inner city schools are over crowded and teachers are paid next to
What has America to do with young people rebelling and turning so sick at soul as to create this "gangsta" culture where women are hated,
violence is advocated? Why do we stand for it?
Young people have always rebelled, that is the nature of being young. We reward single parent households by throwing a few bucks at them, while two
parent families struggle to keep their heads above water. The “gangsta” culture is the result of the frustration felt by those who have been
struggling all their lives. Inner cities are depressed by drugs and violence. The black man is feared and shunned by society.
When we do speak out we are silenced by those who have an interest in keeping the poor poor, the downtrodden downtrodden. When we complain and
ask where God is people shout us down and tell us God doesn't exist. The good people, the Americans who are left are silenced and prevented from
saying or doing anything to resist the criminal element that is spreading from child to child and promoted by media, intrusive pornography and a
culture of "haves" who insist anything goes.
Agreed, that is why we must not allow them to silence us, but continue to speak out.
So we are forced to live with this "criminal element" that is not American and will in the end destroy us. As we are being destroyed we are
scolded and told they are just poor and its our fault. I reject that, it is an evil that has been allowed to grow in front of our eyes because there
are some who make money off of it. America as we knew it is disappearing before our very eyes! And we can do nothing about it.
Corruption exist in all levels of society. America lost it’s virginity decades ago, and now whores herself to the highest bidder. What we can do
is deny ignorance and keep informed.
A storm revealed to us what is happening.
I took this quote from National Review Online
on the San Francisco
earthquake of 1906.
The looting and other civil violence in New Orleans that shocked the nation was far worse in San Francisco. Crowds looted homes and stores as
the spreading fire approached and engulfed them, ransacked hospitals for drugs, and cannibalized the few belongings of the tens of thousands of
refugees. Most shocking of all, some of the worst looting was done by Army and California National Guard troops, especially in San Francisco’s
The mayor posted a “shoot to kill” order and emergency workers followed it — including firemen who had to kill muggers who were attacking
evacuees pulled from burning buildings. The official history is that no looters were killed. But James Baker of the Museum of the City of San
Francisco believes that the number killed, including Army and National Guard troops shot by their own men, rivals the official count of 478 deaths
What happened in NOLA is nothing new.
What can Americans do now to repair what has happened to our spirit? I think it is probably too late to do anything. Like most of America I
can turn off the TV and I think I will. I live far enough away from the sick cities and seething evil that I can still insulate myself for the time I
have left and that is what I think I will do. It is too late to speak out and there is nothing that can be done anyway. If you know of anything
short of shipping that criminal element to live in our laps, let us hear it please.
One you have lost your virginity, you can’t get it back. Don’t let frustration and despair turn to apathy. It is never too late to speak out.
That is why we have this site. Deny ignorance is more than a theme phrase. It is a goal. Study, research and get involved. Keep yourself and
others informed. Question everything! We are here for each other. Hang in there, you’re doing fine.
