Re: How True This Is !!!!

Bearless ,

Your comparisons are fairly accurate ............for the most part .

Rather than get into a debate about those comparisons I would like to point out a sad thing . No , thats not entirely accurate either , I wont " like to point these things out " , just will for those that are reading the post you started .

What is the difference between the " then and now" you have brought up ? Why are the children in your comparisons responding or acting different than they were only a few decades ago ??

The answer is all too clear . Mankind is steadily moving away from an acknowledgement of and therefore appropiate obedience to the Creator .

Some will say that it is because the children are being raised by single parents on a greater scale . That is not he problem !! it is because children are being raised by parent(s )that do not believe that we are " created " and therefore do not owe anything to any other than ourselves . You could put parentheses around "selves" to define the problem .

This is not really humor but sadness instead , the world is not geting better , look around , it is worse than it ever was .

I think if things were like they used to be, we would have less of what happeneed at VT a couple days ago. We always took shotguns to school lso we all could go bird hunting after school. I rode the bus in Elementary School and Jr High, where the bus driver had a scabbard attatched to his seat to cary his 32 special. He said the best time to hunt was when he was driving the school bus. I never saw him shoot anything but we did stop a couple times to look for awhile.

Re: How True This Is !!!!

Whoe There
Hold On Jim
This is a joke I received and passed along to the forum. Nothing more, nothing less.
There not my comparisons. Its not even my joke. Its fictious Jim and like any other joke some may not find it amusing. Do you understand that??
If you would take the time to read it: the children, parents, teachers are not acting differently, its the response to their actions that has drastically changed and hense the humor.
You're looking for something that ain't there fella.
And as the old saying goes; ya can make some of the people smile all of the time and all of the people smile.........oh well
