Why exactly must we return to traditional values?
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

I think I agree with all of these in principle except the marriage one. Most heterosexuals these days can't even stay married for 5 years. I think it is safe to say, there's no such thing as a traditional marriage anymore.

That is more likely due to the selfishness of the "I-want-it-now" generation.

Can we go back to stoning people to death and wearing two different kinds of fabric at the same time as being an abomination in the eyes of god. Ah the good old days when women were property and men got goats for marrying one of your daughters.
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

I believe this is what is called a strawman argument, only it is disguised as a witty sarcastic reply.

The point is valid though: how do you decide what falls into your list of "traditional values?"

I just gave you a list of things that will help America prosper.  Do you have a problem with any of them in particular?

You can try to steer me into an argument about the definition of traditional values, but I'm not interested in participating.

That's probably a good idea.  :)

As for your list, it may help your vision of America prosper.  I may not be interested in that vision.
