"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

It's Not Just a Prom Anymore

The principal of Kellenberg Memorial High School in Long Island, NY, canceled the Spring prom. Bummer, dude. Party-pooper, dude. Well, here's why:

46 Kellenberg seniors made a $10,000 down payment on a $20,000 rental in the Hamptons for a post-prom party. When school officials found out, they forced the students to cancel the deal; the kids got their money back and the prom went on as planned. But some parents went ahead and rented a Hamptons house anyway.

Pre-prom cocktail parties followed by a trip to the dance in a liquor-loaded limo. Fathers chartering a boat for their children's late-night "booze cruise."

The principal of this Catholic High School, Kenneth M. Hoagland, had enough. He sent out letters to parents about the cancellation. His primary concern was the vulgar flaunting of materiality, "financial decadence", as he puts it.

We applaud such action. Parents are losing sight of what is important. They not only lavish material things on their children, they are accomplices to some of the more serious problems - such as provding alcohol, drugs, & sex havens, & all of it unmonitored or chaparoned.

One of the reasons why my ex wife is my ex is because she treated her chuldren that way. She gave them everything they wanted if she could afford to and sometimes when she couldn't. And she never allowed me to disipline them at all. Consequently, now her oldest is in jail.
