This is one of the best home made articles I seen on here. It is so close to the truth in each scenario. It is sad how pathetic society has been twisted from Christians morals, decency and independence that it once had.

And it all started when we allowed the feminists to pussify the education system 30 odd years ago after they hijacked the political scene.

My dad was a teen during the 50's. So I asked him if things were better.
Many of them came to school drunk or smoked weed and had sex while at school. It was easy back then because nearly every adult would buy booze for the kids.
During the public prayer in school they just chatted with each other and ignored it, drank liquor, or made fun of the prayer guy.
Everyone smoked cigarettes, It was American and cool! He got his first pack when he was 5.
Pregnant girls everywhere-Either married off young or they sent her away to visit a relative (She gives the child up for adoption and shows back up 9 months later still a virgin)
He and many friends would break into abandoned warehouses and homes to steal things or party in them.
He was failing school because his father made him skip to work on a hog farm.
His father beat his mom with a bull whip and the police thought it was funny and laughed at her when she complained. When she refused to fix him lunch after she worked all day he took a heated frying pan and stuck it to her face.
Men like Grandpa joined with his gang of other Southern Baptists to taunt and hunt loose black folk walking on the street especially those seen walking in a white neighborhood and used baseball bats on them. The police also supported this and even joined in.
Grandma was paid nothing for working in the local factory. She was given credit at the company store.
When Grandpa died of a heart attack Grandma in a fit of laughter burned all his things on the front lawn. The younger generation have not seen so much as a photo of the man because none exists anymore. In all reality she never loved the man and really hated him. Her father had pawned her off to be married by kicking her out of the house if she refused when she was 12.
Women folk were in terror because a serial killer was chopping heads off and having sex with corpses.
Grandma became somewhat of a herbalist and healer. The same Southern Baptists above tried to burn her house and had declared her an ugly burnt faced witch.
The suspected gay folk just fled this small town atmosphere and moved up north to become wealthy doing art, starting a clothing store etc.
The good things he recalled were the music, meeting mom, and people being less restrictive to their private property. He says that people got their idea of "The Good Ole Days" by watching too much television such as Andy Griffith, Leave It To Beaver, Lassie, Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, I love Lucy etc. which was far from reality.

Scenario 1: Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.
1955 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack...
2010 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.
Scenario 5: Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.
1955 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock..
2010 - The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug violations... His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.
"HIGH SCHOOL -- 1955 vs. 2010"
