    Well, the Doctor Spock Generation was too kewel for all that. So they dispensed with church; with the Scouts; with public statements of patriotism. They encouraged mockery of government and of soldiers. They not only did not warn against Envy and Covetousness...they encouraged it.

    And, among the dumber subset of the young population...what happened, what is happening, is self-explanatory.
    My mom always said that all Spock's book was good for was bopping yer kids on the butts with.

    I grew up w/the family sitting together at the table every night, as did my children, and now, as do their children.

    My (now) 15 yr old g-son knew the Pledge of Allegiance by heart at the ripe old age of 4yrs., as he was reciting it in school every morning, as do the rest of my grandchildren.

    Oh, and they were taught, "Yes, Sir," "No, Ma'am," "please," "thank-you," and how to act when introduced.

    I know my S-in-L was taught that at a young age, 'cuz I was there. I suppose the same goes for my D-in-L, 'cuz that's how her children were raised.

    Those are a few examples of those who I know personally, but the teaching must be widespread, as it's a rare day that a young man doesn't hold the door open.

    It is the same when you are stupid.

    If you hold a door open for a woman in the Uk you'll get called a patronising white privileged pig.

    Such a shame. Same goes for here up north, I hear tell. Yet, they're the ones who think they're so superior because they're ever so progressive.

    I despise what feminism has done to our culture, and I'm no big fan of Yankees, either.

    Really? They'll actually talk to you?

    Hey women are interesting creatures, maybe it's a leftchick's way of starting a conversation?

    I'll open and hold the door and the lady always appreciates it so I don't see that attitude from them- it could be that I'm pretty damned good looking in my senior years though ! Pics on request

    There isn't a Latino in this hemisphere that doesn't align itself with Goya products .
    Trump may have pulled off a political coup of his own having the CEO of this company on his side .

    That was close!

    But you best keep the pics to yourself. I don't know as we ladies could handle the dazzle, either.
    (But you could always post a pic of the wife's lasagna.)
