Sure as children we have less to worry about but I also think that back then even the adults had less to worry about than we do now. Back then my parents didn't have to worry about where I was after school. Heck as long as I was home before dark and supper was on the table I never heard my mother say, "Stay where I can keep an eye on you." Of course we were better kids back then too, I mean if we weren't...hooo boy, we got it.
Sometimes I think life would be so much nicer if I could just do away with the computers, the TV, the cell phone and answering machine, you know, all the major comforts of today's society. Course then, the worlds problems would still be there, I just wouldn't hear about them.
I sure miss those days, Thank you Statler Brothers for helping me get back there, if only for a few hours.

I do know about her because when I was growing up she was all anyone could talk about and I got to see her on the talk shows. So, I'm wondering, what's she talking about. She looks fantastic by the way. She's appearing on the Donny Deutsch show on CNBC.
Now normally I don't watch that liberal channel, but the first thing I heard Donny Deutsch say was, "As a republican...", ok I'm intrigued. I didn't know Bo Derek was a Republican this could be interesting. He asks her something to the effect that as a woman how can she support the republicans on Roe VS Wade? He says something like "Just on this issue alone, how can you be republican?
Ok, so as a woman you can't make up your own mind about abortion or have opinions on other issues? How idiotic of Mr. Deutsch. Then he asks her about Hillary Clinton running for president, and he seems surprised that, "As a woman", she doesn't really like Hillary.
Ok so women take note. Donny Deutsch has this idea that women are supposed to think a certain way, and if you don't, your shunning your gender, as well as your "political party"(as women are supposedly "statistacally Democrat").
This is just another example of how Democrats want people in their party to think alike, they all want democrats to be clones of Supreme Court JUstice Ginsburg and if your not they want you to go to hell. Democrats want everyone to depend on them for everything so they can stay in POWER. They have totally lost it. I can't stand this, "Click".
Is it any wonder I had nightmares last night? I mean the last thing I saw was Donny Deutsch for crying out loud.

You have to be kidding me. If Wal Mart goes, so goes a ton of paying jobs. If wal mart is so bad for America why does it that..."Wal-Mart, [is] the largest U.S. private-sector employer."
It seems like the ones that blame Wal Mart for what's bad don't look at what Wal Mart does that's good. They are helping keep the economy going(duh). This is really just some friggin wacko's making mountains out of molehills. Geez people, get a grip.

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat and was for distribution of all wealth. She felt deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican which she expressed openly.
One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to higher taxes on the rich & more welfare programs. In the middle of her heart-felt diatribe based upon the lectures she had from her far left professors at her school, he stopped her and asked her point blank, how she was doing in school. She answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain. That she had to study all the time. She never had time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying. That she was taking a more difficult curriculum.
Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Mary?" She replied, "Mary is barely getting by", she continued, "all she has is barely a 2.0 GPA" adding, "and all she takes are easy classes and she never studies." But to explain further she continued emotionally, "But Mary is so very popular on campus, college for her is a blast, and she goes to all the parties all the time and very often doesn't even show up for classes because she is too hung over."
Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and give it to your friend who only had a 2.0." He continued, "That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair equal distribution of GPA."
The daughter visibly shocked by the father’s suggestion angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I worked really hard for mine, I did without and Mary has done little or nothing, she played while I worked real hard!"
The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
