Bronxville strutted on the field at the high school on Saturday morning, and all cylinders were clearly in sync. Confidently and patiently moving the ball and gaining a step in every corner, the Broncos early 2-0 lead seemed to have Somers overmatched. But seeing where the storyline was going, the Tuskers employed some patience of their own. Working the ball conservatively, Somers idled the Bronxville onslaught, got themselves on the board and upset the flow before striding away with a 7-4 victory.
During the 1960s, the number of people on welfare rose by 169%. A radical change had occurred and “culturally corrupted” the poor, according to John McWhorter of the American Enterprise Institute. The dispossessed went from thinking that they were doing the right thing by working to being lassoed onto welfare rolls. Thus, capitalism became the cause of individual economic ills and interpreting otherwise was akin to “blaming the victim,” McWhorter added. Sorry, I don’t really know. But the doctrine has been thoroughly accepted by conservatives, and the broad failure gives rise to the Right's favorite battle cry. The culture of victimhood means “we” must foot the bill, and the source of all my difficulties lay squarely on the shoulders of liberal ideology. How unfortunate, but who’s the victim now?
