tbhouston: A yearning exists for the days when children rode their bikes to schools, which were open with flowing green fields where they frolicked under minimal supervisionwhere did this guy grow up??
AdolfOliverPanties: I don't usually read the tripe from that site, but that one was surprisingly less derpy. Still wrong on a few points, but not American Thinker or WND level of what the farkitude.
poot_rootbeer: This is less wharrgarbl than the typical Townhall green light, but it still boils down to "I don't know what happened or how to fix it, you figure it out."
tbhouston: where did this guy grow up??
LouDobbsAwaaaay: "Do you remembah when you could shoot uppity knee-grows with a fire-hose when they refused to use the coloreds-only fountain at the drug-store? TownHall remembahs."
ActionJoe: What has happened? Hmm let's go over it.-We have ended one war which was a massive sink of money and drawing back from another-Recovering from a recession-More jobs and manufacturing being done in the US-Civil liberties are being expanded to gay couples-Medicare was partially reformed-The country has begun to realize the GOP are a bunch of racist retards who don't represent their interests-Gun control measures are seriously being looked atI'd say a lot of good has been happening to this country lately.
meat0918: Now we have a hard time keeping track of which kids are where. Hell, I didn't get very many strawberries from my garden this year because my boys would pick a bunch then bring them out to share.At least this year got some peas because the backyard ones were off limits. They had a row of snap peas out front that any of the kids could eat, that way we didn't have the same thing happening with our peas.
mistrmind: -Gas prices more than doubled since Obama term 1.
Counter_Intelligent: Contrast "The right to own a gun is embedded in our Constitution. It is there for a reason" with "Never being a fan of video games, we would just as soon trash them, but that would be a First Amendment problem. " It's sad that the writer seems to believe freedom of expression creates a "First Amendment problem," while not mentioning rampant gun crime as a "Second Amendment problem."

Many women were limited in their businesses, political, and professional opportunities. And if they did enter any of those careers, they were capped as to what they could achieve. Few would want a return to those aspects of days past. Yet they would seem almost welcome compared to the experiences we have had in Newtown, Aurora and Tucson.Uh, no.
skullkrusher: TownHall's prototype is no "Rockaway Beach"
theorellior: skullkrusher: TownHall's prototype is no "Rockaway Beach"Maybe it's more "I Wanna Be Sedated".
mistrmind: -Move being made to remove our right to bear arms. This coming from an administration that kicked of "Fast And Furious" arms running.
Frozboz: He's saying that "trash[ing]" video games would be the problem, not the games themselves.
Dusk-You-n-Me: A yearning exists for the days when children rode their bikes to schools, which were open with flowing green fields where they frolicked under minimal supervision. Now children are escorted by grownups to their schools, which are fenced in and then locked down.In Japan school children walk everywhere by themselves. Amongst thousands upon thousands of morning pedestrians, you can see these little kids in their school uniforms, holding each others' hands on their way to the very busy subway station, then on to school. No thought or worry of kidnapping or worse.
born_yesterday: I couldn't agree more with this article, regardless of what the FARK echo chamber thinks. I'm older than most of you, so I can remember how things were. I can't really understand how the country got here. I used to be with it, but then they changed what *it* was. Now what I'm with isn't *it*, and what's *it* seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you...
