    and it's only getting better.

    All this gloom around here needs to stop. Everytime I hear one of these "what is the world coming to?" deals I really wonder if people realize how great it is to be alive today. If you are alive and in America today your life is better than 99% of the people who have ever lived including Kings and Emperors and the like.

    Okay. I don't know how much debate you are going to get here.

    I'm not really referring to anyone in particular here. Just referring to people in general. It's usually the RR. People act like the world is going to shit because someone tells you happy holidays or because there is a movie about gay cowboys. Who cares really. Things are much better now than at any other time in history. People who are always longing for the days of the past really confuse me. Things are so much better now. If anything I think I would rather be born a few years later than I was.

    I can think of only a few times in history where being a Christian was rougher than now...that time involved being fed to lions. ;)

    For whatever the problems with today's society, seemingly running FULL STEAM towards Lies - embracing lies as truth - things WILL pick up...just a matter of time.

    I would like Ben Franklin's idea. Wake me up every 50 years or so. I want to know how it all turns out.

    Very true. This is the best time to be alive. But good and evil and always balanced. It's the best time and its the worst time. We live better than any previous generation before us, but we are all alot less civilized then just a generation or two before us.

    Fact is life will get better and worse.

    I always see the left badmouthing everything. They say the economy is bad when it's good. They say we've lost the war in Iraq when we've one. Your accusations are misplaced, devilboy.

    If they ever get a liberal president elected, the exact same conditions that exist now will be considered to be perfect or someone elses' fault but that's not news to anyone here.

    You think everything is fine and dandy because you haven't enough years under your belt to have known any different. I on the other hand have.

    I can remember better days. You can't. Simple.

    And you're a liberal. You 'prefer' all the heathenistic changes. I don't. You sympathise with terrorists. I don't. You think faggots and their butt fucking ways is beautiful. I don't. You think the wholesale slaughter of the unborn isn't murder. I don't. You think john kerry, howie dean and slick willie are great men. I don't. You think there's no war Christianity. I don't. Your "I don't give a fuck" attitude is common to young, ignorant punks like yourself. That's what they're teaching you poor fucks in schools today. Liberal bullshit.

    Wait until you're fifty years old junior, and some little twirp starts telling you you're out of line. The hair on the back of your neck will stand up too.
