“All of our leaders—or many of our leaders—are just morally bankrupt right now,” King said when asked if President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have helped or hurt the black community in America. “They’re not calling on God. We still stay ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’ but we’re not practicing that. We need to call on God. There’s a moral bankruptcy in this country and we really need to come back to God.”
Dr. King is part of an effort that will be announced publicly early next week by various conservative black, Hispanic and Tea Party leaders to reach out to the black community and get them engaged in an effort to help urban centers reject big government in favor of smaller, limited government. The project, called “Restore The Dream 2014,” includes other black leaders like TheTeaParty.net’s Niger Innis, FreedomWorks’ the Rev. C.L. Bryant, radio host Wayne Dupree, Conservative Campaign Committee chairman Lloyd Marcus, Conservative Review president Deneen Borelli, columnist Star Parker, former U.N. Commission on Civil Rights ambassador Ken Blackwell, and others.
In an interview, Innis—whose father Roy Innis has led the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), one of the major organizations behind the Civil Rights movement, since 1968—said that progressive and big government policies have created a “welfare state that has largely not only destroyed the black and increasingly so Latino—and American family generally—they have killed the types of incentives that had led people to achieve and build a better life for themselves.”
So true --- the Welfare recipients will never "give up" their free ride.
Until they begin working and supporting themselves, lower income people will always be envious of others and may even turn to crime to "get the things that they want".
The Democrats and Progressives want to keep more and more Americans at a lower pay level because they want American citizens dependent on government. THAT IS SLAVERY!!!
How do so many Americans NOT RECOGNIZE the slavery mentality?
It can be done gradually. First they need to reinstate the Job Search requirement to any one physically able to work. They can incrementally reduce benefits to help with startup periods and encourage people to work.
I don't think we will ever see Full Time employment at the rates we previously had. Even if we were to repeal ObamaCare and cut back on many of the taxes and regulations that strangle businesses there will be no incentive on the part of employers to give back such things as Paid Sick Leave, Holidays, Vacations, Overtime, Employer contributions to Medical coverage, Retirement Plans and other perks/benefits plans employees received in the past.
I grew up in a foster home. the foster parents got a stipend for taking us in. There was also an allotment for food but you had to go to this warehouse and pick out what was needed. There were mostly staples like bread, butter, cereal and peanut butter and jelly plus a few other things. You were not able to go to a grocery store and buy whatever you wanted.All of our clothes came from a consignment store set up for foster kids. No new stuff. Of course we were chided in school for being foster kids and wearing old clothes. I was always so embarrassed that I swore I would never subject any of my kids to this fate and I worked my butt off to make sure I did not. that is what is missing now. SHAME
Without God, there is no right or wrong, no morality, and no conscience. When those attributes break down, people ALSO do not think logically or sanely ..... they begin to behave like animals --- only searching for their fleshly desires to be fulfilled.
Maybe that is why so many people are not afraid of prison now ..... they are treated well, fed and clothed daily ... and some inmates have TVs, computers, books and physical activities to occupy their boredom.
Perhaps corporal punishment SHOULD RETURN TO PUNISHMENT.
WOW, I'm impressed that there is a black standing up and telling it like it is!! Congratulations! Keep it up!
lets go a little farther obola has bankrupted the entire country everything he touches turns to garbage just like Detroit
She is so right.
Moral bankruptcy is one of the fundamental characteristics of the DEVIL. Obama fully qualifies!
Very smart young woman and glad she is bringing her message to everyone!!!
Without God there is nothing else.Our nation is surly moraly bankrupt.I can remember in my younger days everyone believed in the Divine Almighty God now all may not have accepted his way but they believed in him and feared him.This is what made America so great was the fear of God"For the fear of God is the beginning of( wisdom)knowledge".Of all the nations in the world America is the greatest nation in the whole world.Now if we don't get rid of these godless people the atheist the muslims and anti-christs and the homosexauls God will destroy America because God wont tolerate this kind of sin in the nation he has blessed and set aside as his own.We now have a government full of these type people.We have a So-called president who is a homosexual and muslim and anti-Christ who is intent on destroying America.We have corrupt politicians in all branchs of our government who are the children of Satan."Almighty God forsake us not O Lord God but forgive the sins of America and restore your Divine hands of protection on us in Jesus Name Amen".
