Apologies To A Modest Proposal

  1. Seventy two per cent of African American children, fifty one percent of Latino children and thirty six per cent of Caucasian children are born to unwed mothers. Children raised without a father figure in their lives are,  according to most sociologists and  psychologist at a disadvantage through their lives. This is not to denigrate the positive role many single mothers manage , in spite of all difficulties, to provide for their children. However , the decline of the families and increase in unfettered children in all communities does not work to the advantage of society. Therefore I propose a solution..Instead of the media glorifying the unwed motherhood of numerous celebrities they extol the virtues of lesbian and homosexual relationships even more blatantly than they already do. The more of these relationships , even ephemeral trysts (one night stands), the fewer sexual adventures will result in pregnancies. In fact , it may be in the interest of government to promote the homosexual life style, to reduce the number of illegitimate children and the welfare rolls . I do not recommend eating them, Irish children were much more tasty.

Another Bit of Presceince

During July of 2011 I published a note enitled, The Arab Spring Sprung, decrying the blind optimism of the mass media, the state department, and admirers of the administration concerning the changes in North African governments. That was a simple predictive article. I am now going to go out on a more difficult prognostictive limb.  I do not believe  that Obamacare will fail because it will be repealed I believe it will be repealed because it will fail.. The bill is to elephantine to be adminstered. No one will be able to follow its myriad rules and regulations . The bureaucracy needed to write the rules let alone understand the interactions and forsee the the implication of thousand upon thousand of administratve regulations does not exist.  I doubt if there are enough literate and enthusiatic workers to implement the successful operation of this hodge podge legislation. I think as it moves to full implementation it will fall of its own weight into an unworkable morass.
