When I first came to this country, a pack of Malboro was $1.00.

Sure they will, just stop letting the ACLU tell us how to live our lives.
Stop worrying about being so PC, and stop allowing people to not accept responsibility for their actions.

you are correct, but the hardest thing will be to make ppl take action

we live in a passive society living under control,

i hope the next generations also take action

Being 40 I remember the 70's pretty well. There was none of the that goes on today.

You messed up you got your torn off.

You absolutely did not interupt adults unless you were bleeding profusely.

You could take someone behind the school and wail on them and settle your problems.

Halloween was one of the best times of the year second to christmas and your birthday.

Three TV stations. There was no sitting on your all day watching.

No video games. You actually had to go outside and be creative, now that is a lost concept.

The music was better.

Scarry movies were better. Now it's just how much gore they can show.

One thing I miss, community baseball games. Parents, Grandparent, and everyone would come and play. I had the most fun at those things. There was like 20 or 30 people per team and it did not matter who won. I could not imagine people getting off of their sofas now unless it's for something in the kitchen.

You could trust someone, and a handshake ment something.

People used to duke it out, now they will just shoot you.

Road Rage was not even a term.

Cell phones were non existent. Probably less accidents too.

There was no such thing as Fair Positive anything. Loosing a football game was one of lifes lessons. And you had to really earn a trophy. They were not handed out like candy like they are today.

I miss the days of common sense, and just miss those days in general. Probably the best days of my life. I had a lot of fun. I did not complain that summer was boring, we went out and conquered the world in the summertime and played so hard on the last day of summer that we were dirty and sweaty and got in trouble for not coming home when the sun went down.

I am sad to think that we will never see those days again.

I'm with you on this! I'm also 40.

Man, I can't believe we're comparing to 1967.... the year I was born :/:

But hey! That was a great year!
