As you get older, things that you were familiar with most of your life seem to become ancient history, and seemingly over night. It can be really scary! Most of you guys, (except perhaps for Steve) are probably not old enough to remember things like;
Gas @ $.25 per gallon
Real chrome bumpers,
Being able to eat what you want,
and being able to say what you think without being arrested or sued.
And a bunch more that i'm sure you can come up with. What about privacy? How many of you remember actually having privacy? Do you remember the days when the only people who had your personal information were the people you gave it to? Have we reached a point in our so-called "progress" where people don't even care? Or, have we all simply become props for the govt. and the insatiably greedy advertising industry? Have you noticed that today, there's nothing you can look at, or listen to, or read, that doesn't contain some kind of commercial/political message? Could that be why so many people today don't even understand the concept of, relaxing?
Have we gone from being a nation of free-thinkers to a nation of weak, brain-dead fools who will accept anything that's done to us?
