I was just replying to a thread elsewhere when it hit me like a taxi.........everything is now backwards and upside down from a decade or two
ago.........i must have gotten old in the meantime, because this is no longer my world...i dont recognize anything much......
Bonnie and Clyde robbed banks
Now the Banks rob the people..........
It used to be sacredly important to have votes on printed papers so they could be verified by all concerned, and recounts were possible to hold. and
everyone could see there could be no manipulation.
Now we record votes on electronic medium, than no one can see, and has the distinct possiblity of being manipulated....in fact even may have been more
We used to design products to last a long time,
Now we build in planned obsolescence......when the guarantee runs out so does the function.
We were taught that the greatest among us were those who had done great service to mankind.
Now we are taught the greatest are the ones who do most for themselves....
Those who did their duty were not considered "heroes"
as doing ones duty was bottom line expected of you....and everyone else...
There are many more examples of this turnaround in the way things are.....i am sure you too have a few pet ones that annoy, frustrate, and sadden
Id like to hear them if you care to share.....
