America before there were Politically Correct Liberals

To Those of Us Born

1925 – 1970 :
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s!!

First, we survived being born to Mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets, and, when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads.

As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid  Soda made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight.

WHY?

Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day and, we were OKAY..

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendo and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVDs, no surround-sound or CDs, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits from those accidents.

We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.

We ate worms, and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.

Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.
Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These Generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, and inventors ever.

The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..

We had Freedom, Failure, Success and Responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

If you are one of those born
Between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the Lawyers and the Government Regulated so much of our lives for our own good.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it ?

The Quote of the Month

By Jay Leno:

“With Hurricanes, Tornados, Fires out of Control, Mud Slides, Flooding, Severe Thunderstorms tearing up the Country from one end to another, and with the threat of Bird Flu and Terrorist Attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…go ahead and move on to Obama’s World

Besides, your probably a Liberal

    Tip of the hat to Voting American, amust read and must pass to others to read.

  5. Great post Sam !
    We had some friends who lived in a neighborhood with a circular street.
    In the winter, once there was enough snow, their father would tow us around the circle on a sled with a rope tried to the bumper of his car.
    It was great fun !
    I distinctly remember one time I was so cold I could not bend my knees until I got warmed up again.
    Ah youth !!!!!

    I ran across this this morning.
    Another movie that should be a must see for Christian Patriots.

    The Last Ounce of Courage is the title.
    True story.

  6. G ‘mornin Sam. As usual a stupendously great post my friend. Ah to be young again, with 2-3 foot snow drifts in winter and hot n humid summers at the beach when the sand was further out than it is now.

    As the Archie Bunker family would say “Those were the days”

  7. Great post. It remind me my childhood in communist Czechoslovakia. Yep! Political correctnes v. communist propaganda rule are comparable. They left victims on both sides of iron curtain. If author allow me I will take some ideas, translate ‘em and post ‘em in Czech republic on my blog. Good bless ya all

  8. What makes me angry is the phrase, “politically correct.” I have to check out its origin. I wish some astute Conservative would have seen this statement when it first came out and alerted us so we could have countered with the phrase “politically incorrect” and made this as big of a deal as
    they did.
    Their PC input is so insane, but it’s caught on and many people buy it without any commonsense response.
    It’s a bit too late now, but I think that Rep’s should start a movement using “politically incorrect” when posting some pro-American comments.
