    The Great Leap Forward!

    Anyone ever heard of this campaign? Momentous piece of world history. Astonishing how well this simplistic message to a simple people changed a country.

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    I only see a few similarities, Really it is a historical evaluation of manipulation of an agrarian society.

    Sadly, that as well as many other values is being eroded. We are devolving into a nation of crybabies, neuters and pussies. Where weakness is regarded as virtue and indecency is lauded, while God is no longer allowed in our schools, guns are bad, and the government will "provide all"

    Well, when you say it like that it is a bit less palatable! I will endeavor to put a smiley face on it nonetheless

    We are in a World of Hurt !!!!
    Forward? For who? Not the working people of this Country. We are sinking into a Sea of Scum. I just HOPE I have enough CHANGE left to make to the next week.

    Yes,, I sure would like to see some backwards myself! Working all the time and even making a little money, unemployement was about 4 % (even though that was supposed to be terrible at the time).

    AHHH good times in store though! I finally have more leisure time than work! Course, not having cash kinda puts a crimp in my lifestyle, But the future at least looks more bleak. I am sure I will look at these days as the salad days, huh?
