The American family is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Mom, Dad, and the 2.5 kids are an endangered species.

The reason, in large part, is because of political correctness.

The Family Unit

More people are shacking up than are living in married households for the first time in history.

There was a time that living together without the benefit of marriage was frowned upon by society.

The knee-jerk reaction to such a statement would usually be something like, “What a prude!!”

In politically correct parlance that simply means it’s none of my business what other people do. Live and let live they say.

Actually, it is my business when the fabric of the American dream becomes frayed because someone wants to feel good about themselves at my expense.

Without a strong family unit, we have very little to fall back on.

Without a resilient society, we don’t have much.

Unfortunately, the family unit has been obliterated by political correctness.

Shacking up is OK, divorce is OK, abortion is OK, drugs are OK, teen sex is OK, and breaking laws has no consequences since enforcement is selective based on who or what’s politically correct.

If you’re poor you’re politically correct. If you’re rich, you’re politically incorrect.

The poor want to be rich while the poor also want the rich to be poor at the same time.

If You’re Offended, — We’re NOT Sorry

I need to start a YouTube Channel of things you can no longer say. I think that could go viral.
