Dumbass Dave is really hung up on calling women sluts.
Guessing Dave is illegitimate himself.
You said it.

You said an increase in unwed motherhood showed a decline in morals.

So these unwed mothers are immoral.

Immoral, running around having unwed intercourse, yep, you & Rush Limbaugh called them sluts.

Little enthusiasm for Obama’s Inauguration, TV Rating down Substantially, 60% did not Watch Swear in Ceremony!! We have a poll taken by Gallup between January 7-10 shows that when Americans were asked whether they had a positive view of the country, only 39% agreed!! So how and the Heck did Obama get reelected, it simple the Liberals/Democrats Low IQ voters turn out had an impact!!

Well, I know you didn't ask me specifically, but I reckon it's cause that's just how women get when you piss on their leg. Take it from me, Ma'am, I know.

Can you say worldwide Wiemar Republic? Zimbabwe? They are playing with fire hoping they can extinguish the flame before we get burned. The whole world will be in flames if they get it wrong. It will make 08-09 look like minor slowdown. They have been kicking this can down the road for 4 years now. They are running out of road. I hope you are preparing.
Preparing as best I can. Seems like, unless one has a safe full of gold bars, we're all pretty much screwed. No matter how prepared we are.

And it really does weigh heavy on my mind.

Among others. You see where Raul is turning Cuba ito a capitalist country just as fast as he can? Fired 1 million government workers. Turning over to private business more and more of what the government use to do. Hell if we don't watch out GM will be building a couple of factories there.

Interesting.
I was a liberal, but when I realized how it was changing, I could no longer subscribe to that ideology.
Exactly and why the Democrats split to begin with in 1960 into two factions, the New Left which took over the Democratic Party changed the direction of the Liberal movement forever that was set in motion by FDR for the worst and the Old Left which aligned itself with the FDR Liberal Ideology were conservative with the views that FDR created bailed and left the Democrat Party for the Republican Party which the Democrats that crossed over and changed affiliation to Republican in the 1960's were labeled as Neo Conservatives since they didnt really adhere to the Republican Conservative values that the Republicans adhered to during the 1960's but still adhered to the values that FDR adopted as the New Liberal view when crossed over which today would be more considered to the center.

Just like the ad on the local Rush Limbaugh radio show.

"Times are OK now but what if things go bad" (sounds of people in panic, women screaming)

"Will you be prepared?"

"At Storm Mountain, we can train you in combat skills, sniper warfare, and teach you to be a master of your own weapon"

Fear Mongering for profit.

BTW it looks as though Rand's baby boy is in some pretty deep sht for a youngster. Not long ago those charges would have gotten lost but with today's media watching every move that kid could very well end up a convicted felon.
A political witch hunt.

Besides, the charges are misdemeanors.

Mitch McConnell and Boehner have to be the two biggest phonies in the house.Just to look at either makes me ill, yet as obvious as they are the righties would follow an orangutan as long as there is an "R". They prove it daily.

It reminds me of that old song in fact...

It's knowing that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that binds me
Or something that somebody said
Because they thought we fit together walking
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you are moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman crying to her mother
'Cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the backroads
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from the gurglin'
Cracklin' caldron in some train yard
My beard a-rufflin'cold cowl
A dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend I hold you to my breast and find
That you're waving from the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
Ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind

In the coming months, Republican lawmakers will be fighting tooth and nail against the agenda President Obama laid out during Tuesday's inaugural address: his call to action on equality, immigration reform, reducing gun violence, protecting social programs, addressing climate change and more.
And Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan neatly explains why the upcoming fights might be a problem for the GOP:
The public is not behind us, and that’s a real problem for our party.
So there's one Republican who has some capacity to see REALITY. I'm impressed.

Dave lacks the ability to think critically, reflective of his third grade education.

Although a drastic increase in the percentage of illegitimate births clearly indicates a decline in moral values of the society, it does not follow that all unwed mothers, or any specific unwed mother, is an immoral person.
