I was raised the same way and am forever thankful to have been born and raised in the 50's. I am miserable for my grandkids. Mike
Born in 1961, so by the time I was able to go outside and play with my friends I was kid what did I know.. or even care about politics.. also a subject that wasn't talked about in "polite company" that and my folks Never talked about finances until I was old enough to have a job.. My step dad was of the mind to teach me how to count back change, before computerized or electronic cash registers were made.. I was talked to bout dept as a young adult.. I have neices that I feel for growing up right now...
Things went south in school for me as far as the teachers competence or lack there of, regarding all this revisionist history, and I was rudely awakened by this chicks T-shirt regarding McGovern/Nixon, 1972... She was for McGovern.. more acurately her mom n dad were... Honestly, I still didn't care... I didn't really start to care, until I saw all the money they took out of my paycheck.. then I started paying more attention to my environment..
It's even scarier Now than it was back then..
When I heard, that Liberals wanted to take out ANY ethnic references in books like Tom Sawyer, Huck Fin.. I was Pissed, I guess is the best way to describe how I felt.. see NOW and even as a young adult.. I find that removing bits of history, is leaving one's self open for experiencing those events again and having the same result.. People who do not learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them..or hell even acknowledge the past.. by tearing down monuments to our Not so illustrious past.. It has to be told NOT buried!!..
Regarding Abortion, I am pro-choice, as In I CHOSE to not kill babies unless it's the mother's life in the balance..I guess a product of rape.. Just WOW!!, other than that.. carry it, give it up for adoption, take a lesson, regarding this crap that they can Kill a BABY after it's born and a heart beat detected I call Bullshit!..Take a lesson from this and try not to get pregnant.. Tax payers are NOT responsible for someone's bad choices! Period..
And so here we are, we Have the muslim scourge, after many years in our history of beating them back to their homeland.. we have sexual depravity, by way of homosexuality..& tax payer paid sex changes to convicts or hell to anyone that wants to change their gender.. Look I don't care what people do behind the doors of their homes, what I resent is the concept that they should get ANY special treatment from our gov't for a life choice!..OR that we as tax payers have to foot the bill!
