Absolutely correct, "moral decay." : Fatherless homes, working/absentee mothers leaving kids on autopilot, glorified violence on TV/movies, violent/fantasy video games, and bullying to name a few reasons for young people lashing out.

Leaders need to recognise where we are, not were we were or would like to be. Right-now we have a problem, kids are killing other kids and we have to stop them now using whatever strategies we can deploy immediately. Yes there are several approaches that can be implemented to lessen violence. BUT, most take time; we don't have time. Therefore, to PROTECT kids, we need to have an equal force to meet a violent offender head-on. That can and should be a trained and armed person at every school. We can not afford to wait for an alert to be sent to police, and wait minutes for them to arrive....if they even GET an alert.

Morality against corruption: Guess the winner.
In a corrupt land, corruption will ALWAYS win, hands down.
In a moral land, morality will almost always win.
Morality must ALWAYS be just, and true, lest it be lead astray.

It was this kind of delusional radical crap from the far right that re-elected our President.
If it weren't for senate candidates talking about legitimate rape
Santorum and Limbaugh calling woman on birth control sluts....
If it weren't for the far right spewing non sense Romney just may have won
Voters seemed prepared to forgive his economics but recoiled at the though of empowering these knuckle draggers.

Just because 20 kids were shot to death by a lunatic with legally owned firearms, there is no reason to change any gun laws.
Our gun laws are absolutely perfect.
Over and over we hear about the shortcomings of our legislative branch Of governement, But our gun laws are a model of perfection.
The only way to make our kids safer in school is with more firearms.
Not with armed sheriffs in the building, but with armed students, teachers trained to kill.
More guns is the only way to stop gun violence. That French guy in charge of the NRA is just so right.

There has always been a spiritual battle between the sacred and the profane. Those rationalizing the entry and flourishing of the profane in their lives will always attempt to say "look over there; we're not the problem." Evil is deceptive. A new revival of moral prerogative must be established in our land; those silent and cowering before evil for decades as their aimless children flounder in a denial of wisdom and sound basis in their youth must regain the playing field. Until the death culture of killing tens of millions of babies for convenience, validation of dark deviance, depravity and irreligious arrogance is confronted effectively, it will seem darkness gains victory. Even the drug culture imposing its lack of moral foundation forty years ago heard the truth of "teach your children well." Until the current practitioners of all those things displayed by the perpetrators of these increasingly unfathomable horrors are clearly confronted with the shallow house of sand they've built, their influence must become more egregious, more insulting, more in denial. This is why they pass laws allowing more drugs for more kids and teach their children to be weak and cowardly. They want everyone in a haze like the demons guiding their own souls.(They'll likely remove this post again, but cannot assert it violates any terms of service.)

Maybe, but the real numbers came from 95% of Blacks voting for obama just because he is Black. And all those receiving a check because they wanted that check to keep coming. That's why obamanation was re-elected. Kinda ironic...obama has done nothing of any significance for Blacks at-all; he doesn't even attend their meetings he's been invited to. Reminds me of that story about the politician saying: "If they voted for me, they deserve what they get".

Agreed. Moderate Americans just could not stomach some of the nuts who call themselves Repulicans.

Reagan, Eisenhower and Lincoln would not not want to be identified with the current crop of so-called Republicans.

73% of Asians voted for Obama. Asians are consistently among the top earners and the most educated of Americans. They are also probably the smartest ethnic group in the United States.

so blacks voted overwhelmingly for Obama
Listen to the way that some folk use that Kenyan crap as a tool, just listen to the tone offered here, and then wonder why blacks might vote this way

Nominate two twits
for senate who speak of legitimate rape and wonder why there is a gender gap

Have a presidential candidate who recomends self deportation and wonder why the hispanic vote went against you

MEMO insult people and they are a bit less inclined to vote for you
Turn off the hate ....it isn't working as well as it used to
