American society has been degenerating into a fetid wasteland of endless "shock" for as long as I've been alive, but nothing that I've seen illustrates this unforgivable decline like this.
To put things in perspective, here's how our "shocking" pop culture looked way back in 1957:
Fast forward to the present, and we see a video that literally leaves me speechless—but be forewarned, Lady Gaga and Beyonce have made every effort to ensure that your sensibilities will be offended (which is why I won't embed it here).
Mrs. SnappedShot, who sent this to me, hit the nail on the head by describing this video as a "disgrace to America." And I couldn't agree more.
If this is the culture we want to live with our children, then I'm truly ashamed to call myself an American.
