It was the 'The Shining City Upon A Hill' until liberalism took over. The erosion of social mores brought on by burgeoning governmental largess and the pacification of a largely foreign dependent class, overloaded the treasury, which in turn led to the usurpation of wealth and inevitable collapse. Excessive government killed Rome.
The "erosion of social mores" had nothing to do with "liberalism."

Is equality for women "liberalism" or just what's right? Do conservatives oppose equality for women? If you still think of it that way, there's something wrong with you.

Equality isn't liberalism. It's Americanism.

The "erosion of social mores" was never in short supply; it was just underground. Men beat their wives without consequence because they were considered property. The fact that women, upon reclaiming their rights, left those men was no the erosion of social mores. It was the symptom of a lack of morality of the men who beat them, which was always there.

The erosion of social mores now is the disposability of marriage and family. Most people do not enter marriage with a serious commitment. They always think they have an "out" if they want. My brother just left his wife after 6 years and 2 kids because "he wasn't happy." I find that to be immoral. He had a girlfriend before they were even officially divorced. I find that to be immoral. His kids will suffer as a result of this. They were 3 and 1 at the time. I find that immoral.

And that's not liberalism.

If anything, conservative areas have MORE divorce than other places. Look it up. The most divorce is in the bible belt.

So it might be a cheap and easy scapegoat for you to blame everything on liberalism, but you're fooling yourself.

North Korea is moving a medium-range missile to a site in the east of the country, a U.S. intelligence official said Thursday as tensions with the nuclear-armed state continued to escalate.
The official declined to say where the Musudan missile was headed, but the North has used a site near the Russian border on the coast for its missile tests in the past.
South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin told lawmakers Thursday that the missile had "considerable range" but not enough to hit the U.S. mainland, according to The Associated Press.

Hope the Associated Press is right.
Could this be the other shoe I've been anticipating to drop - the trigger finger of the growing global tensions that causes an unknown catalyst worldwide?
Gee, sure hope not.
I'm sure you'll find a way to blame that on Obama too, but also to not give him any credit if it gets worked out.

A person goes to purchase a gun, a background check is done, if the person fails, the dealer is not supposed to sell the gun, he tells the person, I don't know why you were denied, you can appeal if you want. Many people are victims of identity theft; they have the right to know why they were denied, mistakes happen.
Even worse if a person is not told why they failed a background check.

The fact remains that applying to purchase a firearm when you clearly know in advance that you are disqualified, such as being a convicted felon, is a crime in itself.

Well, dear, let's start by saying your use of the term, "theoretically" is redundant so don't do that anymore. You could take it right out of the sentence and the sentence would make more sense. Secondly, who cares? The Holocaust was the Holocaust, the christians did nothing to stop it, it was them doing it, in fact. Pay attention to your christian neighbors, that's the message.
I have no idea what's happening in North Korea, not much I suspect, but it seems frightfully important to you. Why is that? Why do you always seem to need to be be worried about something? The very first second the North Koreans raise a WMD into a launch position, they will alllll disappear from the planet. Don't sweat it. Nobody'll miss 'em. Do you know any Koreans? They're the most unlikable people on earth. Let 'em go. Chill, bitch.

Hitler was no more anywhere near the rightwing ideology as he was the leftwing ideology.
However, Obama most definitely wants control. Why is he growing government by leaps and bounds, usurping his authority by bypassing Congress on major policy decisions, making government and himself the CEO of corporations and demonizing the opposition in every other word he says?
Where have you been?
Myth: Hitler was a leftist.

Fact: Nearly all of Hitler's beliefs placed him on the far right.

Do you do any research at all?
This president has alienated republicans from day one. He has no interest in working WITH them, just wants them to do everything HE wants and then blames them if they don't.
Where have you been? You and Homer were obviously in the same place.
That and you are backwards.

The Republican priority was to make Obama a one-term President, more than fixing the country.

The Republican party went off the deep end as soon as Obama was elected. The refusal to cooperate, the "you lie," the disrespect was unbelievable.

Obama came to the table on EVERY proposal with Republican ideas built in. Instead of taking that on good faith, the Republicans took it and asked for more, moving farther to the right.

Let's not revise history. Obama did not come into office in the spirit of NOT cooperating; quite the opposite.

You really need to get a handle on reality. You're disgraceful.

Which is it this time?

Calling being a homosexual the same as being a pedophile?

Homosexual sex between consenting adults is legal. Adults should decide between each other.

Sex with kids is not legal. According to you it is perfectly OK if you can talk the kid into it. You're speaking from experience?

Allowing two people of the same sex to marry is NOT the same as being a pedophile.

1. Walgreens = capitalism at work.
2. Sounds like there will be job openings in the health care field. If there is more demand and a shortage of doctors, guess what - we're hiring doctors!
3. Relationships with doctors are bullsh!t unless you have a serious disease. Most doctors are overpaid aholes who are about as reliable as auto repair centers (yes I said MOST.)

Completely agree with your last sentence, but all the anti-gun legislation in the world will not protect you either.
Certain weapons sales should be monitored closely, the 50 cal sniper rifles for instance and those rifles that can easily be converted to full auto.

What's happened is that the weapons business has become very competitive, like the auto industry where bonuses are paid on volume product placement, advertising co-op's and so on. Those who sell the weapons don't really give a fk who they're selling to so long as the paperwork is good. That's probably not the best approach but that is exactly where that industry has gone.

Honestly, I haven't any earthly idea how to fix it, and I'm not sure anyone does.

The GOP's inclusive makeover isn't quite working out. On Wednesday's "Daily Show", Jon checked in with the rebranding efforts of the party and found a couple of areas for improvement. Area 1: not using offensive slurs when referring to Latinos. Area 2: not using the same dumb "what's to stop someone from marrying an animal" argument when talking about gay marriage.

Remember, guys, baby steps are still forward baby steps. Watch the clip above.
