I am SO tired of these kids today, bunch of damn hippies with their long hair and their "rock and roll" music!

They've all grown up so damn soft! The boys grow their hair like girls and their music just sounds like NOISE. The Beatles? Please, that's not music, Dean Martin is music, Sammy Davis is music (not that he should have any of the same rights I do)

Ever heard of the Great Depression?! Read a damn book for God's sake! We used to eat salted balls of butter for dinner! These kids today with their sugary sweets and sodas - some of them are even eating mud. Mud! If I had eaten mud my father would have beaten me until I couldn't walk. That's what we need nowadays! These beatniks don't know anything about hard work and it's because their parents have been too soft on them.

They're a bunch of self-entitled losers who sit on the street with their brains melting waiting for a handout. I was shoveling coal when I was 10 years old, joined the Navy at 17. You know what my son does?? Works at a damn record store and smokes doobies all day.

Protesting a war?? Back in my day we called that treason!

Woodstock? What was it even about?! Bunch of idiots OCCUPYING a field and expressing themselves? Get a job and quit rolling around in the mud like a bunch of damn fools.

And you know what, you used to be able to TRUST strangers! Nowadays we got spooks sellin reefer on every corner and this Charlie Manson fella! This is what drugs and rock music do to you! Turn you in to a violent, sociopathic homocidal maniac!

Blacks kissin whites! Boys kissin boys! What a sick sick world we all live in now. I fought the Japanese for THIS?!

And politicians?! What a bunch of corrupt cheating stealing SOBs; Richard Nixon has left a stain on this once great nation that we will NEVER recover from. This is it folks, the end of the line, the fall of the Great American Way.



-Feel free to add your own ignorant imbecilic experiences here so that we can all complain about the horrible sickening current state of our society and the young generation who will never understand pride and hard work.

We're no longer relevant so we might as well bitch and reminisce together, right?








It seems that some are missing the sarcasm here. This is in response to the obnoxious "Back in my day rabble rabble rabble" threads. I was born in 1986, this isn't meant to be taken seriously, sorry bout that haha

I was born very close to your requested time zone and yes I can see where you're coming from on some points but hey - don't you want better than you had for the next generation surely we want them to have a better life than us.

Yes easy come - easy go and that's the attitude and it doesn't do much for a value system but complaining as you do about blacks kissing whites etc - that just shows your disgusting ignorance and you encourage members to respond with their ignorance if they wish.

Your living in a different world mate - it's called progress and yes we do lose some things in the pace of advancement but do you really want the next generations to eat butter balls for tea - perhaps you'd be happier if we went back instead of forward.

As for beating the kids till they saw sense, I see you haven't.

You're talking out of your A***! There's a lot wrong with the world and the young ones know it too and most of it is caused by people who think like you.

In the same since, I get tired of hearing... Well in my day blank was 5cent. Better yet, I know everyones got one of these in they're family.: I had to walk a 6mile in 8 Ft snow.... one way, up hill to add. lol. Get with the time Gramps. Heres the true facts: The Youth of the nation as a whole has broken countless records set by fossils. While older people have no idea whats going on with technology. Everybodies got the Grandsomething That cant even operate they're TV. That and i wont even bring up driving after 80. I do believe All people - Elder, middle, and youth ages are spoon feed. Therefore The elders are as bad as the youth, just with more wisdom, yet criticism. What i gather from this rant is that The older generation dont like youths complaints. However you yourself are complaining about youth. I think the real problem for the old generation is realizing when its time to step back and let they're predecessor take over. Whether for good or worse it will happen. So why stress it. With that being said I am almost 30 and i look to elders with the upmost respect. Until they prove the lack of respect for another. Which many elders seem to hold towards the youth today. If it were as bad as you speak. Your generations to blame as much as ours. On the music level for example, Who do you think owned the labels and the produced the music. Not youth. We sang it!

Have you ever considered that you may be what's wrong with society? Lol, if this is your second round of a great depression coming along don't you think you old guys should know the routine by now of what not to do? Nope. It's the old people like you who blindly led us to the same hell we've already experienced. Apparently you want everyone else to be miserable just because you were, well guess what.. Its 2012.. Not 1920.. So get over yourself, and find somewhere else to complain
. If you want to find people who agree don't come to a website where most of the population is from 18-40 and go to the retirement home.
