Oh yeah Back in the good old days when no one swore but it was perfectly fine to call African-Americans spooks, shines or spades.
Lets not over exaggerate, people did swear back than. They just had the common sense not to use it around children, grown-ups and in public places.
It's called being considerate and not offending people who would find that kind of language offensive.
Again, you're kind of naive to think racism is dead. You're painting the majority of Americans as raciest during that time, and that's simply
wasn't the case.
Yes the glory days when odd-ball relatives were sent to the asylum and suspected criminals were strung up right there and then regardless of evidence
to the contrary.
Again, your painting an entire generation based upon a groups particular racist belief. That's like me painting your entire generation as home
invaders and thugs. Were not talking about groups like the KKK.
I'll tells ya what else kids don't get hit enough today doin all that book learnin and figuring things out. back in my day you made it to sun down
without a broken collar bone and you prayed thanks to the baby jesus. Oh yes what a civilized time that was.
Oh, there were definitely some parents that went overboard disciplining their children. I definitely won't deny that. But now parents can't event
swat their child on the behind with their bare hand without someone yelling abuse. Kids are singing their own tune no matter if it makes them
homeless or lands them in an early grave. If kids want to be illiterate and ignore their education so be it. But don't use my taxes to pay for your
welfare check because your too incompetent to hold a job! There's a reason why the United States is ranked 25 out of 28 in education. If you don't
think a poorly educated generation won't affect your quality of life down the road, just wait.
Back in them days your country went to war you didn't question it you just went and said yes sir I will die for no reason whatsoever.
Did you learn anything about the Vietnam protests in history class?
Have I missed something here? Your generation has witnessed more illegal
wars and occupations during your time than my generation!!! I haven't seen any protests by your generation? Talking about saying yes and dying for
no reason, were you sleeping during the Gulf War, Iraq War and the war in Afghanistan? I guess ignorance is bliss.
When you worked 18 hour days for a penny an hour and you were happy to have it cuz you were a good god fearin workin man. And if you got your hand
mashed in a press you didn't want no compensation no sir that would feel like stealing from your godlike employer.
Dude, you're losing me here. How old do you think I am, 200 years-old?
Seriously a penny an hour?
All I can think of is your talking about work ethics. I guess you think being rude to customers and doing what you want to do on the job is the new
way of thinking. What kind of twisted thinking is that? If you owned a business and hired someone who was loafing on the job and not doing what you
were paying them to do, would you continue giving them a pay check? Your business wouldn't survive. That's the real world we live in today. What
world are you living in?
Again how does it feel to be a cliche?
I don't think you really understand how your using the word cliche.
A cliche is not an original phrase or idea. I lived my generation and I am
telling you my original experiences during that time. Just because many in my generation repeat the same memories of that time, doesn't mean we
never experienced it. So my personal experience is original. I just think you don't like hearing the truth.
