The Left is Destroying Our Value System By Eliminating the Slaughter Rule

Sometimes, you can't mock Dennis "My Son Has a Black Friend" Prager any better than just quoting his opening paragraph:

This past weekend, a friend of mine attended his 13-year-old son's baseball game. What he saw encapsulates a major reason many of us fear for the future of America and the West.


Still, the man has a point: when you look at the decline of all the major world powers in history -- Athens, Rome, the Han Dynasty, Timbuktu, the Germans, the French under Napoleon, the Soviet Union, the Persians, even the British empire -- the cause has always been the same: too much compassion.

I think America is destroying itself because you guys seem to hate one another so much, not because you care about each other too much. However, I suspect you're being somewhat more ironic than my comment, so how about I say that America is being destroyed
because Canadians don't love you as much as we should. We're sorry, honest, we really do like you and Sally Field, alot.

O, by the way, I don't think I'm related to Dennis, at least I hope not, otherwise I'll really have to practice my unconditional love....

They also learned to think in the feminine -- with an emphasis on feelings -- rather than to cultivate their innate masculine sense that winners win and losers learn to deal with it and move on to the next game.

It's like every Praeger column, no matter the topic, has to be puncuated with the occasional, "Take that, bitch!"

Is his friend a taxi driver?

Taxis drivers are an excellent source of anecdotes which confirm a columnist's assumptions about the world.
