A correspondent sent me this clipping that recently appeared in the Miller County Liberal of Colquitt, Georgia. It is another example of progressivism run amok in America that affects much more than our national debt. Such people are the stalwarts and core constituents of liberal politicians across our land. Hard to garner their vote if your message is that you should become a legitimate couple and earn your own way instead of taking it from your neighbors.
[2sep15 update] Yet one more collectivist cancer is now rampant in the land. The clearly fraudulent ‘Black Lives Matter’ agitation (movement?) abetted by the lamestream, has now cost hundreds of additional lives across the country this year as crime rates have soared. Why? Because crime has now been elevated by the administration and various leftwing municipal jurisdictions to have become politically motivated, thereby giving lawlessness an implicit level of justification that invite more scumbags – especially the black-on-black kind – to wantonly kill.
Our police across the land are justifiably convinced that civilized society, led by progressive politicians, no longer has their backs. They have quietly started pulling back from their normal law enforcement practices as they are being regularly hauled into vindictive politically motivated judicial proceedings, or simply murdered in the streets. To put meat on these observations, just consider a sampling of American cities in which the murder rate has sky-rocketed during the last year – Austin +90.9%, Denver +75%, Milwaukee +73.6%, St Louis +57.7%, Baltimore +55.8%.
