I imagine every older generation before me has felt the same. Things changing much faster than my brain can keep up with.
I have lost the idea of legal and illegal. I believe in states rights, but wonder when a state passes a law making an illegal substance legal for recreational use, what happens to the National law? I understand Mr. Holder has said the government will not pursue users in those states.
Now Please do not get me wrong, I feel that pot is probably not any more harmful than tobacco and alcohol, but I think it harms teens in their mind set. That statement probably doesn’t make sense to anyone but me. .
Speed, you all probably drive on our roads, streets and highways. Speeding is a fact of life. If you do the speed limit on the interstate, you just might get run over. I know folks who set their cruise control at 80mph on the interstate. Have you ever thought of the impact of two cars head on at 70-80 mph? like hitting a wall at 140-160 mph. OUCH!
Marriage. I believe the last statistic I read was over 50% divorce rate. When I was 13 I knew of only one divorce. I have to admit that many folks stayed married ‘for the kids’, or so I have heard. I do have enough sense to know that some divorces cannot be avoided.
New cars. I was raised in a family that used cars were the norm. Now it seems New cars are the norm. Some families are making payments on several NEW cars. If they have the income, more power to them. BUT if they are just barely making it, that is a shame.
News. Before I lost my hearing the 24/7 news was starting. There is just so much news, the rest must be ‘created’ by some ingenious reporters.
Gas. The price reached near $4 again and now it is down to $3.25, I think it is planned to make you feel like $3.25 is a DEAL. Manipulation I say.
Okay, I ain’t leaving this life yet, but I am trying not to get upset at the things that make me feel uncomfortable.
Thanks for coming by the log.
I do better on the road. I don’t fuss half as much.!
Now I fit in with this stuff!!!!
