Divorce hurts Children, a million more in the U.S. a year

Divorce hurts children: “Each year, over a million American children suffer the divorce of their parents. Divorce causes irreparable harm to all involved, but most especially to the children. Though it might be shown to benefit some individuals in some individual cases, over all it causes a temporary decrease in an individual’s quality of life and puts some “on a downward trajectory from which they might never fully recover.”1 Divorce damages society. It consumes social and human capital. It substantially increases cost to the taxpayer, while diminishing the taxpaying portion of society. It diminishes children’s future competence in all five of society’s major tasks or institutions: family, school, religion, marketplace and government. The reversal of the cultural and social … Continue reading

Quotes worth remembering, at least worth copying

Updated 2019 05 07 Quotes from some of the writings that I came across over the years: “The classical liberalism of the nineteenth century is widely and correctly admired, but we can now see that it was inevitably a transitional phase. The tendencies inherent in individualism were kept within bounds by the health of institutions other than the state, a common moral culture, and the strength of religion. Liberalism drained the power from the institutions. We no longer have a common moral culture and our religion, while pervasive, seems increasingly unable to affect actual behavior. Modern liberalism is one branch of the rupture that occurred in liberalism in the last … Continue reading

Consumers support economy — Economies need consumers

Without consumers there is not much of an economy.  Work produces goods and services.  Consumers buy goods and services.  When more and more of the people’s jobs are being mechanized, more and more people will have trouble finding employment.  That problem is aggravated through accelerated immigration from under-developed nations (instant consumers, rather than having to wait 20 to 25 years of waiting for the home-grown variety to come on-line).  Without a lot of jobs and people filling them, there won’t be many consumers who can buy goods and services. A collection of concerns, with links to articles in which they were expressed: Automation and mechanization have liberated many people from having … Continue reading

Maya Angelou — fame not facts

Maya Angelou, “Trying to support her son as a single mother, she worked as a pimp, prostitute and _____.” How does such a passage make it into an 8th Grade maths test?  That depends… Nobel Prizes are hard to get, Nobel Peace Prizes easier. A Nobel Prize is awarded to people who excelled in a field of science and worked hard at doing so, while a Nobel Peace Prize is awarded primarily to someone who makes the grade for political expediency.  Nobel Peace Prize winners are in the company of, Aristide Briand and Gustav Stresemann (1926); Henry A. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho (1973); Rigoberta Menchú Tum (1992); Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin (1994) Kim Dae-jung (2000); The United Nations … Continue reading

The wall at the border, down Mexico way

The “wall” at the U.S.-Mexico border Originally posted on FB, January, 28, 2017 Why is the liberal media obsessing about that wall? How is it any different from the walls around one’s home? Walls keep us safe, but they cost money. “President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has signaled to congressional Republican leaders that his preference is to fund the border wall….” Source CNN So far, we still have the right to build, sell, rent and purchase homes that have walls, walls with doors and windows in them. We still have that right and are well advised to secure the windows and to keep the doors locked, basically all day, but especially … Continue reading
