According to a new study by the Centre for Social Justice, almost half of all children in the United Kingdom will see their married or cohabitating parents split up by the time they’re sixteen. Never before in Great Britain’s history has the breakdown of the family been so palpable.

Here in the United States things aren’t much different. According to a new report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, one in four children in the United States is being raised by a single parent. The main reason for the high U.S. figure, say the experts, is the growing acceptance of single-parent child rearing.

The question is, should there be such widespread acceptance of single-parent child rearing?

People struggle with this question for an obvious reason: just about everyone knows at least one person, if not ten, who is either a product of a single-parent household or is a single parent. Thus, Americans are reluctant to say anything disparaging about single parents. Indeed, the desire not to offend has become an epidemic in this country. When Ann Coulter pointed out in 2009 that 70% of prison inmates come from single-parent families, as do 70% of teenage runaways and drug addicts, she was accused of being insensitive. But in order to solve a problem of this magnitude, we’re going to have to step on some toes.

Have you ever considered just how empty some of our parental directives actually are? With phrases like, “Words can never hurt you” or “Just ignore him, and he’ll leave you alone.” With a straight face, we give our hand-me-down wisdom with little thought to what we are saying– as the kid stares at us in utter disbelief. Even a child knows that’s a suicidal playground strategy.

In the grown up world, words can get you beheaded, and sharing can get you shot with your own gun. Nonetheless, in a jaw dropping display of leftist moral superiority (not to mention military ignorance) Matt Lauer, co-host of MSNBC’s TODAY, put a human face on the phrase “useful idiot” as he expounded on foreign policy.

Are liberal women responsible for neutering men, as Rep. Allen West told a group of Tea Partiers in Boca Raton, FL last week? In a word, yes.

Here’s the statement West made to a group of conservative women that has people on the left riled up:

We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow.

I’m sure West’s use of the word “subservient” was like nails on a chalkboard to the left. After all, servitude is the very thing they pride themselves on having saved women from. The notion that men are in any way subservient is laughable to this group — they think men in America have it made.

Yet West is correct: American men have been demoted. They were once respected providers and protectors; today, they’re considered unnecessary, irrelevant, and downright expendable. Men do need lifting up, and conservative women are precisely the ones to do it.

The best example to date of America’s new attitude toward men is a statement actress Jennifer Aniston made in August of last year:

Women are realizing more and more that you don’t have to settle, they don’t have to fiddle with a man to have a child.

Isn’t that just Hollywood talking trash, you ask. Don’t these women live on another planet? Perhaps. But no Hollywood actress would have dared to think, much less say, such a thing forty years ago – whether she was a Republican or a Democrat. One could only feel comfortable making such a statement in a society that’s gone off the deep end.

Here’s another example.

Just when you thought you could breathe a bit easier with the speculations about the President’s birth certificate being put (mostly?) to rest, along comes another can of worms in the form of the release of an immigration file on Barack Obama‘s father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. The file includes a lot of information that paints a different picture than many (like this?) we have seen before.
