Remember When?


Children of the greatest generation

Born in the 1930's to the early 1940's, we exist as a very special age group.

We are the smallest group of children born since the early 1900's.

We are the last generation, climbing out of the depression, who can remember the winds of war and the impact of a world at war which rattled the structure of our daily lives for years.

We are the last to remember ration books for everything from gas to sugar to shoes to stoves.

We saved tin foil and poured fat into tin cans.

We saw cars up on blocks because tires weren't available.

We can remember milk being delivered to our house early in the morning and placed in the “milk box” on the porch.

We are the last to see the gold stars in the front windows of our grieving neighbors whose sons died in the War.

We saw the 'boys' home from the war, build their little houses - Jones Park?

We are the last generation who spent childhood without television; instead, we imagined what we heard on the radio.

As we all like to brag, with no TV, we spent our childhood "playing outside”.
There was no city playground for kids. Soccer was unheard of.

The lack of television in our early years meant, for most of us, that we had little real understanding of what the world was like.

On Saturday afternoons, the movies gave us newsreels sandwiched in between westerns and cartoons that were at least a week old.
Telephones were one to a house, often shared (party Lines) and hung on the wall in the kitchen (no cares about privacy).

Computers were called calculators, they were hand cranked; typewriters were driven by pounding fingers, throwing the carriage, and changing the ribbon.

The 'INTERNET’ and ‘GOOGLE’ were words that did not exist.

Newspapers and magazines were written for adults and the news was broadcast on our radio in the evening by Paul Harvey.

As we grew up, the country was exploding with growth.

The G.I. Bill gave returning veterans the means to get an education and spurred colleges to grow.

VA loans fanned a housing boom. Pent up demand coupled with new installment payment plans opened many factories for work.

New highways would bring jobs and mobility. New cars averaged $2,000 full price.

The veterans joined civic clubs and became active in politics.

The radio network expanded from 3 stations to thousands.

Our parents were suddenly free from the confines of the depression and the war, and they threw themselves into exploring opportunities they had never imagined.

We weren't neglected, but we weren't today's all-consuming family focus.

They were glad we played by ourselves until the street lights came on or Mom called us for supper - by hollering!

They were busy discovering the post war world.

We entered a world of overflowing plenty and opportunity; a world where we were welcomed, enjoyed ourselves and felt secure in our future.

Although depression poverty was deeply remembered.

Polio was still a crippler.

We came of age in the 50s and 60s.

The Korean War was a dark passage in the early 50s and by mid-decade school children were ducking under desks for Air-Raid training.

Russia built the “Iron Curtain” and China became Red China.

Eisenhower sent the first 'Army Advisers' to Vietnam.

Castro took over in Cuba and Khrushchev came to power in Russia.

We are the last generation to experience an interlude when there were no threats to our homeland. The war was over and the cold war, Muslim terrorism, “global warming”, and perpetual economic insecurity had yet to haunt life with unease.

Only our generation can remember both a time of great war, and a time when our world was secure and full of bright promise and plenty, we lived through both.

We grew up at the best possible time, a time when the world was getting better, not worse."

We are “The Last Ones”.

More than 99 % of us are either retired or deceased, and we feel privileged to have “lived in the best of times”!

Just When Do We Get Old?

Lately, I have felt like I’m out of gas. I’m slowing down, but then I saw these folks, and realize I am just getting lazy.

Remembering

Coming From Someone Younger

One thing old guys like me get from the youth is that I’m too old and I don’t understand the problems of youth. Well, granted my youth has been long gone, but I remember what my feelings were when I was young and what my priorities were. They aren’t much different today than they were in 1950. There were some big differences, like we didn’t have TV, or video games or computers, or social media to complicate our lives. In fact, telephones were still a rarity. I found this video by an Eagle Scout which pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter of the Boy Scouts bending to the will of communists, and he is spot on.

Neutered Men

My rant yesterday about the death of the Boy Scouts of America left me thinking all through the night. A new question popped into my confused mind. Why don’t the Girl Scouts recruit boys to join? Progressive women are so bent on infiltrating all men organizations but we never hear of them allowing men to enter their lairs. Why is that? There are plenty of men who like Bruce Jenner want to be women. It would be a natural for the Girl Scouts to encourage men to join. My guess is that women joining men’s organizations has nothing to do with the women’s movement. It has everything to do with the communist party. It is no secret that communists have set goals to infiltrate movements for the express purpose of causing division. They are good at it, and we are buying into it hook, line, and sinker. Do you want to start a revolution? Set black men against white, women against men, cop against criminal,  heterosexual against homosexual. Division works to confuse people and to sell the message of equal outcome for everyone. How can women be equal to men when men insist on maintaining all men’s worlds like the Boy Scouts? They can’t, so they must fight hard to infiltrate, and neuter the man’s private world. At the same time they keep their own women’s world organizations solidly female, no men allowed.

Movements like the one to neuter the Boy Scouts only serve to give religions fostering fewer women’s rights to flourish. After all there is something to be said for having four wives who must bow to the man’s needs with a right to have a temporary wife when the four aren’t satisfying enough. Want to keep the little lady in control? Join an all man’s organization like Islam.

Real women like my mother were never upset over not having the same rights as men. Why would my mother want to go to work in a dirty shop to work in conditions not fit for women. Why would a woman want the right to use a hammer straightening steel in her job all day long? Instead my mother chose to out work my father by raising three kids, keeping house, tending a one acre garden, raising chickens for food, and cooking for the nuns at the local convent. She held the respect of every family in the neighborhood, and she never minded that she couldn’t compete with my dad for anything. She made her own world, and enjoyed her womanliness doing it.

The wimps in charge of the BSA are all Bruce Jenner wanna be’s. They should look at the Girl Scouts for help in keeping their male identities.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll have another BSA rant to get off my chest.

I Quit!

Dear Boy Scouts of America:

Go to hell, I resign. Take my name along with my twenty-five years of service off your roles. I’m sure Lord Baden-Powell is spinning in his grave because of your stupid decision to bend to the progressive communist message. Let me be frank, allowing girls into BOY scouts makes as much sense as Bruce Jenner becoming a woman. As I wrote in an earlier post you had better develop merit badges for condom usage and sex education.

I would rather see the BSA go out of business because they have lost the interest of the boys of the world. Your branch of explorer scouts which took the same path as you are taking should have given you enough experience to realize this simply won’t work. My prediction is that within ten years you will merge with the Girl Scouts to survive.

The world continues to change. Darwin called it evolution. This wish for women to be men and men to be women is one of the evolutionary micro-organisms afflicting humanity. When will it end? When humans are all bi-sexual? There are a few species of animals in existence that don’t need sex partners to procreate, and you are going that way. The sex with robots movement is an early step in that direction.

Right now there is an excellent woman available to lead your failed organization. She is the master  of progressivism in the world and will enjoy taking every man you have left and tearing them into tiny pieces. Her name is Hillary. Good luck BSA.

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
