Ain't That a Shame!

That's the popular song made famous by Fats Domino in the 1950's, but the title has pertinence today as to what is gong on as our culture has come under attack by progressives (a/k/a liberals).

Within the last few years, we've seen one tradition after another come under attack by the progressives and in its place, laws have been enacted and court decisions have been reached making prevailing morality and social order the enemy and instituting a “feel good” anything goes mentality on how we should conduct our affairs.

This assault on our traditional values began in the 1960's when we passed legislation declaring a “War on Poverty”. The good intentions of helping the poor morphed into a plan to take from the successful in our society (a/k/a the rich) and give to the less than successful by means of “income redistribution”. Instead of helping the poor better themselves, and after spending over $15 trillion since 1965, we have seen no marked improvement of the poor except that they have become more dependent upon the government for their everyday sustenance. In addition, the “War on Poverty” laws have had had deleterious effect upon the family, especially among the black community where over 70% of all black births are to single women without a father at home. The social consequences of this is now being manifested in the increase of criminal activity in that social class. Children growing up in a one-parent fatherless home are many times more prone to drop out of school, indulge in petty crime as youngsters, get involved in gangs, and finally leading up to become adult criminals. As Fats Domino would say, “Ain't That A Shame”.

Look around, what do you see? Drug use is being legalized in many states and just lately we've had a couple of U.S. Supreme Court decisions that have turned our Constitution on its head, Those decisions were not based on constitutional law, but was based on the emotions of those judges own personal viewpoints and interpretations of what the law they thought it meant not what the law actually meant.

It seems that Americans have become so “non-judgmental” that many people can no longer tell the difference between good and evil. Over the last few years, we have witnessed a lack of common sense morality that has real consequences for our nation. Here are some of the negatives I'm referring to. 1) The collapse of marriage (roughly 40% of marriages now end in divorce). 2) Violent crime, especially in inner cities, has reached epidemic proportions. 3) Poor government (one of the biggest factors is the dishonesty of our own politicians). 4) Dependence by people on the government for their sustenance (1 out of 5 people are getting some sort of a government handout). 5) The lack of civility and manners (especially among the young people who mostly come from single parent households (no father at home to give guidance).

Finally, there is a concerted assault on our Judeo Christian heritage. Members of the media, academics, gays, Democrat Party, and race baiters like Al Sharpton, Black Lives Matter, and Jesse Jackson, have banded together to undo hundreds of years of traditions, traditions that have made the U.S.A. the greatest country and the envy of the the world. Remember, in 2008, Barack Obama said that, if elected, he would “transform America”. Now, more than 71/2 years into his presidency you can see that he is trying to fulfill his promise of total transformation. Will he succeed before his term ends in January 2017? It all depends on the electorate in November, 2016, whether common sense will prevail or will we fall further into the abyss of Marxism/Socialism which Obama and the Democrats (including Hillary Clinton) are offering up. If they succeed, then Fats Domino's song of “Ain't That a Shame” will be the cry of American patriots as the USA slowly slips into what happened in the demise of the Roman Empire. “Ain't That a Shame”.
