    Then they do worse at it. The single most likely indicator for whether or not you will fail to "do for yourself" and end up on welfare is whether or not your mother was on welfare.

Some schools are even banning sporting activities to prevent anyone from feeling like a loser.

    We surrender to just about any complaint, rather that seeing if any of the responsibility falls on the complainant. For example, schools are removing a cross or picture of Jesus if one or two people complain, even if a hundred want it there. Someone needs to speak up and tell them to ignore it if they don't like it.

    You might say "the older generation always says the younger is worse." However, the upward trends for the numbers in divorce, kids born out of wedlock, government handouts, obesity, average age people live with parents until, etc. speak for themselves.

    What will it take to get society to acknowledge these mistakes and fix them? Feel free to add more.

    In all likelihood, we have regressed to the point that revolution may be the only viable option. I would still like to see other options pursued, but recognize that such recovery may not be possible short of radical methods.

    Socialism, be it called Liberalism, progressive, etc is a cancer of our society. Like any cancer, it must be cut out. In the case of America, this cancer may indeed have progressed beyond the point in which the patient has any chance of survival. Emotionality is the only thing holding back any realistic attempts to cure this cancer. Logically, we excise it from the body politic by any means necessary, emotionally, we don't want to "sacrifice" or kill "human beings."

    It is well know that emotions can shut down logical thinking in the human brain. The more emotional a person is during developmental years, left uncorrected, will lead to the retarded development of logic centers in the brain and reduce, if not actually the total loss of, emotional control due to the retarded development of the emotional control centers. Some members of our society, Geeks and academics as an example, may have highly developed logic centers but due to limited focus and inadequate emotional control brought upon by retarded development of social centers of the brain, can still fall into adherence to totally illogical ideologies such as socialism, due to an overwhelming emotional desire to "fit in" or belong coupled with ignorance outside very specialized fields of knowledge. These individuals could probably be saved under some conditions, such as them being willing to correct their ignorance. However, those adults who have already completed the development of their brain centers but still suffer from such extreme retardation of their logic and reason centers as to embrace socialism, in it's various forms, simply are not redeemable and will remain a constant threat to the wellbeing of our society and mankind as a whole.

    However emotionally undesirable it may be, we are now at or nearing the point where the only workable, logical solution would be for decent people to rise up and eradicate the adult socialist (Liberal, progressive, etc.) from our society or accept the depredations of the destruction of our society. The none truly adult socialist may be able to have their retardations reversed or minimized, but should be monitored after achieving full brain development for the disease of socialism and if necessary, eliminated from human society.

    Sure its tiresome, but this has been going on for centuries. It's the modern media that gives them the larger platform and presence and their idiocies are more easily, and constantly, replayed. They certainly fall under the category of gullible, poorly informed wusses.
    Yeah, I always thought "Save the Whales" was cool. Bond guy Pierce Brosnan wanted Obama to sign on to an anti- whaling agreement so he even showed up to the WH to ask for support. Obama didn't do it though, hes a chump.

    I can remember one of my freinds saying he was embarassed because his parents went to a Three Mile Island protest back in the day. But that freind was a dork. That was an important one, a big suppression of the facts by the corp. media.

    It just seems like there are more important things like human rights for liberal hosts to spend dozens of hours of radio air time on hydraulic fracking.

    Re: Wussification of America

    So, what is worse, sitting around trashing others for their gender or race or nationality or being afraid to say anything that might be seen as derogatory to a single group of people? Today, should you have a confrontation with a person anywhere, work or at a public place you could wind up being sued and imprisoned for what others percieve you to be. Where I work we had several racial issues that eventually brought in the FBI. The company went on a rampage of firing anyone that looked wrong. Lawsuits came and went. Now, years later it is like a prison here. There are cameras everywhere inside and outside watching every move you make.
    We are being molded to behave in a certain manner through the media especially. Laws are spilling over governing how we must behave. It's seems like the level of desperation to preserve this federal government is increasing at a murderous pace. Where are the bumper stickers? Where are the signs and posters in our offices? Are we afraid to make a statement fearing we will upset someone and be fired and sued? Kids cannot wear symbols on their clothes at schools, they cannot make inappropriate drawings, they cannot carry just any lunch box., etc. Our individualism is being stamped out of our everyday life. Homeowners associations are way too powerful and dicatatorial on our private home lives. Everyone talks about breaking big government like the Repulicans but only make it bigger like the Dems. The democrats harp on big corporate and wall street while they cater to them and make them more powerful every day. We have trillions of laws and who knows what they are? The left and right now hate each other and this can only result in disaster. We have lost as we went past the point of no return long ago.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I think he/them were wrong to focus only on the level of higher education. This kind of leftist or wrong attitude is being indoctrinated into people as early as primary school, possibly sooner. In too many areas, the public education system has become a "create good leftist", not create good people.

    He said he would be happy to do studies on other education facilities as well but he was only commissioned to do this one. But of course you are right. It has spread like a venereal disease throughout the educational system.

    I love this silly tea party meme. It's one of the most lunatic ones and so is especially charming.

    But maybe you should stick to the teleprompter meme.

    Meme fallacy: when HoJ doesn't have any other rebuttal, he likes to describe things as memes. See appeal to ridicule.

    You and Bolling don't actually know anything about cultural and social changes in the US over the last few hundred years, do you?

    You're just assuming you know something - and by gosh - determined to use something like removing religious symbols from public schools and firing an abusive cad with no sense of self control or sportsmanship as an example of said false assumption.

    At the very least - I expected the OP, based on the title, to actually be about the rise in public aloofness when a tragedy is afoot (IE: college students doing nothing in response to a shooter on the rampage whilst in a crowded cafeteria). Instead, I just read some sniveling bull regarding religious displays and the firing of an ass.

    Maybe that's an example of the wussification of America: People who pick the LITTLE THINGS to gripe about whilst the bigger, more important issues, go entirely ignored.
