First note that this is not about politics, our president, party affiliations. church, god, Even though they are mentioned for the sake of the article.
We have people saying our schools are polluted with teachers and professors that teach anti-American, diluted history of our country and it's founding fathers.
Like Ward Churchill professor at Colorado State University who teaches that Americans are to blame for 9/11, that we are what is wrong with the world and the terrorists are only doing what they have to for their own good. We have people who believe him, who are very far outside the mainstream of our society, who want you to think they are the majority. Thank God, they are not! The Michael Moore crowd did not get their way!
We have in most colleges and higher schools of learning similar types of teacher/professors that speak vehemently against the President, the war, our system of government and just about anything else they don't like such as god and the police. They seem to be in sync with the hollywood crowd that has such huge influence over our youth through their films and their star studded personalities.
Trash movies, TV and all of the music and entertainment industry has taken this country down the road to perdition, by not allowing anything but kinky sex ,bad language(not just cursing) and violence to permeate their offerings.
However, the fault lies more with the populace than any other place. for who is it that allows the children to partake of these events? Who pays for them? Who turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to what is being shown? Who are the ones that allow it to continue no matter how bad it gets?
We the people, that's who!
We all know that our modern progressive world has brought us to the present condition of an insenitive, anything goes, decadent society. Now we have to ask the question, what are we going to do about it? Some of the groups that are trying to make a difference have been put down, and called church going busy-bodies, who want to make everything like the dark ages, where nothing is allowed and peoples rights taken away from them. This may or may not be true to some degree, but outside of that fact we need to take action!
I can only speak for myself when I say it is each individual that must make a change. Groups are not going to do it. Churches aren't the only answer. What is needed is for each person to become aware of the problem, and admit things really are getting bad. Once we admit that, then each individual should try their best to become a responsible human being with mutual respect for each other, setting some standards for their household to follow. I go by the ten commandments, plus some rules I have made on my own. You can make your own rules, as long as you do your best to enforce them, so that your children can have a barometer to fall back on, of what is and is not allowed.
If we don't do something soon we will learn what chaos truly is. It is happening folks. This society is out of control now. The A.C.L.U. is a failure! Our Justice system has failed us. All of the governments programs when it comes to social affairs is a failure. We need to do it ourselves. We need to be careful whom we vote for. We need to get involved in our schools to find out who is hiring the teachers/professors etc and check their backgrounds before we let them teach our youth. We need to get back to the basics!
I'm not mentioning party affiliations, race religion, color, creed, because all that matters is that as an individual you have the right to live in peace and comfort and have the joy, that freedom allows without the criminal, shoddy, crap that has overcome our culture. Speak out for your own self. Take your territory and make it yours by not following trends that others set. Most of the trend setters are scewed up anyway and that's how we end up being screwed!
It doesn't have to be religious, nor does it mean going back to old fashioned ways. What it means is being clever enough, to find new ways to be decent, caring folks, who can still have fun, romance,pleasure while doing things with respect for each other, caring what happens to one another. This present mean culture we have allowed with even the bugs bunnies being changed to look like demons is showing us what can happen when we take niceties, love, and respect,out of the equation.
Let's try to do what we can to make a difference. It is never too late to try, as long as there is life there is a chance. If we allow the cruel, hard, uncaring aspects to become the norm, which seems to be the current trend, we are in for hell, unlike any we ever had before. A society run rampant doing as it pleases breeds leaders that become tyrants, "Big Bosses" that know nothing but greed, lies, cruelty, and taking advantage of everyone, feeding their own narcissistic selves.
We don't need those kind of leaders! We can do it!
We can make a difference if we determine to be what we know we can be, better than those who are trying to make our lives a garbage disposal to suit their wasteful ways.
I say, not me and mine! No Way! If each person changed just a little for the better, the whole world would be better! Think about it.Then do it!!!
We need each individual voice to be heard, in order to make changes!Say something, don't keep it to yourself!

|I dont agree with you at all. As an Australian youth, i feel that everything you say about my generation is wrong. But then i also disagree with the way you teach history. You teach nothing about the second world war pre-american involvement. If i asked any of you a series of questions relating to global events, how many of you would be able to answer them all? Sure you know every president and the names of your 52 states backwards, but how about the french invasion of indochina or the peloponesian wars? Im sorry, but reading about americans complaining that their 'professors' and 'teachers' are teaching 'un-american' values is funny to me, because maybe its the best way to teach...|

|And we all know that what you say is 100% right on target. BUT, there's always a BUT. The people that will agree with you already understand and in fact are trying to make it a better world. We're severely out numbered, under capitalized, and totally unorganized. To correct our situation would be a monumental task. And I don't believe you can teach moral values to the masses. Don't kick me, but the church has failed in this task. The schools are forbidden to teach values. It's a crazy world. In the final analysis, if we continue to life good lives, set good examples,and pass our values on to our children, we've done more than most.
There is some really scary stuff going on in this country. I posted an expose by Wayne Madsen,a Washington, D.C.-based investigative journalist and syndicated columnist on my blog. It is very long, but with a cup of coffee (or a beer), it's worth a read. Don't let the title scare you off.

|I wholeheartedly agree and tonight in bible class we discussed this same thing. In that I say as much in my autobiography we are to take responsiblity for the choices that we make in our live. The things that happened before we reach majority is what happens when we think and reason as a child. But after eighteen the choices became ours to deal with. I essentially agree with all that the others have said and frankly I am sick to death of the whining excuses of the people who made their own choices and expect us to be civil about it when they teach hate. That is not the way Jesus taught and they are not the ones to judge. Me I know I have much to atone for and that is why I did stop this madness.|

|We, as parents and members of society, have the "duty" for our children to be involved in actions not only in our private worlds, but also the world as a whole. When, we can make desicions based on what we truly believe then we will be on the path to "recovery." The only thing, we need to question is whose recovery will it be?|

|You have a computer, use it to tell the channels that exploit sex and their sponsors, that unless decent programming is given you will shop elsewhere. This is the language that sponsors listen to. Well done Eileen. Our country has indeed been headed in the wrong direction. Let's change it.

|I agree with most everything youy have said. What concerns me is the fact that it has been ingrained within our system for so long that everybody is really good, they are just poor, or whatwever ruse they use to make bad look good. It is in our institutions, our government, our minds. A friend took of a political sticker she had on her car. I asked her why. She said that she was going back to work and she didn't know if they would say anything about it. This is HER car. Her stickers. In an America that SAYS we have freedom of speech, but what it really means is that we have freedom of speech as long as it is politically correct. Yep. It is time to start a grass roots rebellion.|

|AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sick of hearing about the people bashing our President; he may not be the best man out there, but he is what we have now, and if they don't like living here in America, then I say get them OUT of here!!! Let them live in a land that doesn't offer freedom! You are so right; we do need to rise up and fight for what is rightfully ours! Excellent article, Eileen; brava!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
