    I guess since we fall in the 1973 time frame, we're screwed up. We didn't have all that "necessary intervention" to protect us from ourselves.

    yup--the trophy goes to you. I'm still curious as to what people think regarding why the change. What happened? Where and why did we go insane?

    Well we got beaten and treated so badly we needed to break the chain of future events. 1/2 of the parents these days are for this liberal horseshit and the other 1/4 is scared to get arrested for going against society. And the other 1/4 is feeling pretty much hands tied. So what is the answer? I have one but many would clearly disagree. But it directly deals with being around your children more and quit chasing the almighty dollar. That would be a start. But until that happens this can only get worse.

    This difference between then and now are deffinitely the effect of years of liberal horse shit, i.e., hitlery clinton mind set, It Takes A Village, and political correctness run amuk.

    I still live by the old rules, as much as can and stay out of jail. I don't need some pencil necked, slack jawed, mouth breather, liberal to tell me what is and isn't good for me. They can kiss my conservative ass.

    Yeah but weren't they to at some time subjected to the very things I posted? I mean in some cases things have been taken out of context and abuse was an issue, but having made it like these days I would think the liberals would be wondering WTF over with our youth completely out of control. Thus if they ain't this may be why I'm not a liberal. And I guess when parents are in an uproar when you drag there frigging kid to the door and say lil Johnny screwed up, thught yu'd like to know, all's they are worried about is his stinking ear! What a mess

    Yes, that's the point 90K. The liberals and their thinking is in control of schools, from kindergarten to college, and look at our young people. Out of frigging control.

    I got my ass whipped when I screwed up as a child, and I didn't know one other kid that didn't. When my little brain started thinking up shit to do that I knew was wrong, 99% of the time I DIDN'T, because I knew the "CONSEQUENCES"! Today, there are none. If you try and spank your kid today for screwing up, all they have to do is call the cops and they'll take mommy and daddy to JAIL! YEAH, that really teaches the kid they can't do this or that.... RIGHT. No... what it DOES teach todays kids is that they can do whatever the hell they want pratically and get away with it with NO CONSEQUENCES.
