  •  He does a good job of proving he's delusional (0+ / 0-)

    Every single time I here these people talk about "the good ole days" when America had all these right-wing values, I always ponder...When the hell was this? And what exactly is he talking about?

    Is it that gays can actually live life peacefully out of the closet without having their skulls caved in my some homophobic neanderthal redneck?

    Is it that women can actually enjoy sex now without being branded as a whore by an ignorant society?

    It is that it's changing so people can enjoy a little marijuana in the privacy of their own residence without having jackbooted lawmen crash through their door with automatic weapons pointed at them?

    On the surface, it sounds like he's talking bout the 1950's. But  in the 50's the rich were taxed so many times more than they are now. And there wasn't all these loopholes to get out of it either. Not to mention regulations out the yin/yang. And unlike today, the people guarding the chicken coop wasn't a sell-out corporate shill--they would nail your ass to the wall for real.

    It always angers me to hear these idiots reminisce about a time that never really fucking existed.
