…With the Lights out it's less dangerous
Here we are now entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now entertain us…
I feel like my generation has brought the ill
of their poor upbringing to full fruition.
I am not making excuses. Far from it…
Yes, we were the "first" really that had to
be put in full time daycare.
Yes, we were the first that had the broken homes…
the weekend visitations…
the child support that was never quite paid on time…
Dad that never came when he was supposed to…
Mom that bitched and cried and had guys around...
We suffered the fruits of the Sexual Revolution and free love.
We suffered the fruits of NOW and Gloria Steinem's movement.
We suffered the fruits of the new way of no real discipline parenting, or
better put, "I don't have time for this" parenting.
So, now, we have a generation of parents who don't know how to parent
and have no moral fiber to parent.
And a generation of grandparents who are forced to parent their grandchildren.
Or, in a better analogy for their generation…
Hello, darkness, my old friend… I've come to talk with you again…
Is this what we have reaped? Is it getting hideous out there?
Are we all taking our rage out against the most innocent? With a few women
thrown in for good measure?
People who don't have the sac to stand up and provide an example better than what
they were apparently raised with… or just going completely crazy.
In the past month, this is just a small
small sampling of the stories I have seen in the news. What is going on here?? Selling your
grandkids? Washing infants? Stuffing people in trees? Taking your kids on Thanksgiving and not telling anyone what you did with them?
What is this country coming to?
And is it going to get even worse?
Are the innocent going to keep reaping the benefits of our stupidity?
Of our insanity?
Of our rage, our jealousy, of our wrath, of our greed?
God help us all…

MORENCI, Mich. -- A small southern Michigan town has been humbled by tragedy but its people are determined to find three young brothers missing
for nearly a week, the mayor said Thursday.
Morenci Mayor Keith Pennington said he is still hopeful the boys are alive, although police have said they don't expect a positive outcome. It's
