"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I'll admit: I was tempted to make a joke about this (e.g. - Did fathers get in free with their kids?), but there's nothing funny about it.

Large portions of our cities are now home to functionally-illiterate, drug-addled, third-generation government dependents from fatherless and faithless families.

50 years of Progressive social policy created these nightmares, by replacing the values and virtues of Western civilization with the rules of the jungle and the smothering embrace of the State. But say that out loud, and a cacophony of manufactured outrage will envelop you with false charges of racism and bigotry, promoted especially by rich liberals in their cloistered communities, walled off from the reality that advances on them daily.

Yep.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

From the article:
[[ No, what happened at African-American Family Day at the National Zoo was violence. Two people were shot, one in the hand and one in the arm. It mirrored past African-American Family Days at the zoo. In 2011 there was a fight and a stabbing, and in 2000 seven people were shot. ]]

Refer to rules #10d and 10e of John Derbyshire's "The Talk":
(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.
(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

Andy, your writing is eloquent and noble, but did it ever occur to you that for some, it might be impossible to replace "the rules of the jungle" with the precepts of Western civilization ??

I'll take the bait.  Why would it be impossible for anyone (except maybe a small subset of the mentally ill) to refrain from bustin' a cap in a crowded place?  Maybe requiring someone to wear a belt so his underwear doesn't show is too much to ask.  Are you really saying, however, that it might be too much to ask of someone to not take a shot at someone else because of some perceived slight?  Is it too much to ask black college students to behave like civilized human beings instead of doing the things they used to do at Freaknik?  Or, are you saying that blacks are like animals and the rest of society should just learn to deal with them because they can't possibly do any better?  The behavior at events like this is well documented, and it's abhorrent.  But that's not the question at hand.

Maybe the key to your statement is "for some, it might be impossible".  If so, what do you mean by "for some"?  Is it a certain percentage?  Or is it just blacks from a certain state, city, or community?  If this is the case, why would it be impossible for these particular people to conform to the culture of civilized society but not others?

Perhaps I misunderstood what you said.  If so, I apologize and look forward to your clarification.

Luis - if I wanted to hear that sort of shit, I'd go read TOS.

Two PEOPLE got shot. They ain't convenient cyphers. They bleed and hurt and die.

You've been different the last few days. If you got a problem that is stressing you out, PM anyone or take it to the members section. We'll try sort it out.

No I'm the same. I have no problems.

I just have no pity for individuals, nations, religions, societies, cultures, etc that suffer from self-inflicted wounds.

I don't buy into the notion that blacks are the victims of anything other than their own behavior, and I don't believe the solution to their cultural woes are anyone's problems but their own.

Experiment over.

I made a blatant, indisputably racist statement. My state of mind was questioned, and it was suggested that I should seek counseling.

Where are my defenders?

If I had cows, and incoherently tried to base my racist statement on government antipathy, would supporters arise and excuse my racism off?

Fair enough. You had me worried for a minute.

Bundy was NOT saying we should relegate blacks to slavery.  He said that the black family has been harmed more by Dim policies than it was by slavery.

Bundy, E. W. Jackson, and Thomas Sowell said essentially the same thing, one less eloquently than the others.  All 3 hammered the Dims' social policies.  Two were ignored because they're black conservatives, the other is castigated because some of his specific words are considered archaic and politically incorrect.  Knowing this, the GOP runs from him and also ignores the 2 black guys.  The GOP should start defining themselves rather than letting the Dims do it for them.

This American Thinker column is worth a read.

Sadly, I do. Or at least that people of shared skin tone can be the victims of others behavior.

My son in law and I do about the same amount of driving. In the last 10 years I have been pulled over three times - speeding, tail light out, driving erratically (they pulled me on suspicion of drunk driving, when in fact I had dropped a lit cigarette onto my crotch!). All three times it was settled quickly, at the roadside and without even a ticket.
In the same period he has been pulled over 57 times, been arrested twice (weapons possession - he had his toolbox in the car), and had his car searched more times than you can imagine for drugs. Is he not the victim of others behavior?

Yes... he's the victim of other people's behavior.

Not the cops however.

He's the victim of America's black culture's self-inflicted wounds.

The cops are just reacting to it.

Sad thing for your son-in-law.

In Bundy's eyes, the present situation of the blacks (or at least those blacks that he based his opinions on) is the fault of whites by way of our majority in government. Bundy then wonders if the solution to the problems of those blacks rests in the hands of whites again, whites being the majority of slave owners.

That's either a very liberal mindset (better lives through someone else exercising more control over your life), or a very racist mindset (blacks are incapable of resolving their own problems or even figuring out that they have a problem so they would be better off as slaves... blacks are obviously inferior). Having gained some understanding of Cliven Bundy these past couple of weeks, I'm thinking that he's not a liberal.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
