In large part morality is set by example. For instance, you do not see anyone poop in the corner of the living room, so you don't. You learned that among other things, it is not moral to do so. Some parents use foul language all the time so the children think it is OK where someone else thinks foul language is morally and socially wrong.


Now you have a President that is foul mouthed, ill natured, belligerent, amoral, philandering and self indulgent. He is setting an example that not only children but adults follow even though they should know better. Social graces and morality be damned. If the President does it, it must be OK.

Here it is folks...


Evil people. Kill them!
Cannot possibly be people with wrong ideas, so let's inquire about them and have a dialogue. The chair of reason is for everyone.



The difference in the left and right.


Evil people physically harm and kill other people. Am I evil, because you think what I say is wrong?

Being overly sensitive and easily offended, is not an excuse for violence. Especially in an armed society.

Single parent households or latchkey kids because economy requires dual income households. Family unit disintegrated. No family values in many family units doesn't help. If you look at Baltimore and the violent parts of Chicago, I'm guessing the families are dysfunctional or single parent.

You're evil if you think behavior like this from our gov't is acceptable:

A 41-year-old Detroit man deported to Iraq in June died Tuesday, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and two people close to the manís family.

The man, Jimmy Aldaoud, spent most of his life in the U.S., but was swept up in President Donald Trumpís intensified immigration enforcement efforts.

...the death appeared to be linked to the manís inability to obtain insulin in Baghdad to treat his diabetes. Aldaoud was an Iraqi national, but he was born in Greece and came to the U.S. as a young child, his family friend said. He had never lived in Iraq and did not speak Arabic, according to Bajoka.

Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is releasing the details of the death of a child that occurred after being apprehended for illegal entry with her father along the southern border in the El Paso Sector. The Guatemalan government was notified immediately following the childís death. CBPís Office of Professional Responsibility and the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General is conducting a review. Out of respect to the family of the deceased, CBP did not issue a statement regarding the childís death at the time of the death. CBP is currently reviewing its public disclosure and notification policy related to deaths in our custody.

That's what the know-nothings said when they beat on and killed Catholics in 1850.

One could just as easily blame it on human beings. Milk. Ice cream. Money. Love. Sex or any other stuff.

I would suggest that emulating a fictitious society designed to play the role of the main antagonist in an ideologically driven TV show is rarely a good idea.

Let's not just think the decay occurred overnight. Sheesh! Trump and Epstein have been wingman, forcing themselves on helpless women for decades. We're just learning about it now....

Yeah, in the past this country survived the immorality of Elvis Presley and the Beatles. It can survive most anything.

Yet Republicans want a society where everyone is forced into their place, social hierarchy is strictly enforced, and the Bible is the supreme law of the land. They deny they want to take it as far as Gilead but that's exactly what would happen.
