There is a growing and disturbing subculture of violence and immorality among our younger people.

We must start intervening and guiding them with the help of celebrities and musicians who have a strong voice and influence - even if they need convincing it is their moral and societal responsibility to do so - or the progressive liberal poison will decay the very foundation of their, and our, future.

The message that promiscuous sex, drugs and gratuitous violence is cool and/or glamorous in the movies, rap music and video games MUST STOP! The entertainment industry has desensitized young people to the point of becoming zombies with a distorted view of sex, lack of self-respect, lack of compassion and moral degradation. They have to be held accountable and reverse the trend they created.

Going to hell in a hand basket is not a flippant phrase anymore. It's a reality among young people and happening right under our noses!

It's long past due adults finally did what we've always been obligated to do - care about the well-being and future of the younger generation.

I am very, very concerned about the violence and immorality we are witnessing among our youth and growing.

Shouldn't we all?

<quoted text>Do you ever run out of conspiracy theories?
No. To engage in an activity with another human while keeping it secret from other human beings is one of the most characteristic instincts of humans. That defines a conspiracy. There is no magic level of society or government where this most basic instinct to engage in conspiracies magically becomes impossible.
Only an idiot thinks there are no conspiracies.
How about the conspiracy between the Democrats and Republicans to get the Democrats to support the war in Iraq?

Oh, yeah. I forgot the conspiracy rule. The only possible conspiracies are right wing conspiracies, right?

The poster did not say that Republicans had not proposed a budget. What Republicans have done, after claiming for months that the Senate was stalling by not passing a budget, is "refused to meet with the Democrats to begin negotiations on a single, unified, budget."
No longer can Republicans "pass bills with little chance of bipartisan support through the House and make it appear that they were hard at work while the Senate dithered." Now, the shoe is on the other foot and the Republicans are exposed as the hypocrites that we all know them to be.
Besides, Ryan's farcical budget which increases defense spending above post-sequester levels at the expense of all else is, just like him, borderline delusional.
Republican mantra: Our way or no way.

So, explain to us why we didn't have a budget when the Democrats had a super majority in the Senate and dominant control of the House.

You're an idiot dupe.

An Arizona Highway Patrol officer stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit. He starts the stop by asking the biker his name.

'Fred,' he replies.

'Fred what?' the officer asks.

'Just Fred,' the man responds.

The officer, in a good mood, thinks he might just give the biker a break, and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer presses him for the last name.

The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it.

The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it.'Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?'

The biker replies,'It's a long story, so stay with me. I was born Fred Johnson. I studied hard and got good grades. When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Johnson, MD.

After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through School, got my degree, so then I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS.

Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD, so now I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS, with VD.

Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS. Then I was Fred Johnson, MD, with VD.

Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Johnson with VD.

Then the VD took away my Johnson, so now I am Just Fred.'

The officer walked away in tears, laughing.

Communism is dead. You might see it on a small scale, a small country but as a system it performs badly on a large scale. Humans are individuals, most(not Fox News viewers) think for themselves, and most people value freedom and creativity, these things are suppressed under the Communist system.

As long as companies like Walmart continue to grow and sell more Chinese made crap at low prices and more companies are forced to move factories overseas then we may one day be subservient to future Chinese overlords.

Homer will be dead by then, but Flack's kids may have that future to look forward to, courtesy of Flack.

Good point, we went in to Iraq to get WMD's, and if in fact those WMD's were shipped to Syria why wouldn't we go there after them?

Coalition of the unwilling - Obama has yet to reach out himself to House Speaker John Boehner to secure congressional support for U.S. intervention, but domestic politics are the least of his concern. With U.N. weapons inspectors bogged down, an expected Security Council vote will be further delayed. And with Russia expected to block any strike, will probably be a dead end. The call for a NATO-led attack like the one that helped Libyan Islamists topple their government is also dimming as British Prime Minister David Cameron, faces new pressure to win approval from Parliament before proceeding with any military plan. Cameron talked with Putin late Monday, and his office’s readout of the call showed Putin far from obliging.
