<quoted text>Nice! I remember blue jeans and flannel shirts... When I moved back from Maine, I could not return to the old neighborhood so Newaygo County is for me. Now though, my job is not only working from home but also travel throughout the Northern Michigan on both sides of the State. I like my mobile office life......
I also have a job where I get to make deliveries around the northern lower from Manistee to Alpena all the way to the UP love it. Its not UPS or Fed-Ex or anything like that. Yep it was always blue jeans and flannels the original grunge look. I even wore old fatigue shirts that my brother had brought back from his time in the service.

<quoted text>Nope Batch my class started at EK in 1970 the gym was still under construction. We must have covered some of the same ground. Apparently Bob didn't get around much or he is just to young. Whats a leisure suit?
I got fortunate and transferred up here to Traverse in Dec 2011 thru my job, it is so nice to be out of the city. I used to look out my kitchen window and see the neighbors house about 10 feet away now I look out my kitchen window into my own section of woods.
I didn't get around much, and you never saw a leisure suit?

Besides jeans and flannel shirts, what was the Dutch style back in those days? Wooden Shoes with three inch heels?

Overview of Ghetto Mental Retardation

Mental retardation or intellectual disability,(MR/ID), exists in children whose brains do not develop properly or function within the normal range. There are four levels of retardation: mild, moderate, severe, and profound. Sometimes, MR/ID may be classified as other or unspecified. Mental retardation involves both a low IQ and problems adjusting to everyday life.

Much of Hip-hop delivers too many of the wrong messages and glorifies the wrong lifestyle......too few to look up to, and it plays up to too many conforming young people....

I don't understand any kind of bravado. If you were truly so 'hard' you wouldn't feel the need to over compensate. Some people hide behind their friends, others hide behind nothing regardless of how tough life has been. Lt Columbo is my kind of person :)

I just do not get it. Can someone explain to me why people act ghetto? I am just not talking about blacks. I am talking about all races. Hispanics, Asians, whites, and other races. Do people who act ghetto realize that acting this way is not going to take them far in life? How do they expect to land a good job and be a contributing member of society by acting this way?
I live in Kentwood (I am Hispanic) and I am embarrassed to see the younger people act this way. Why do parents permit them to act this way in the first place? I just don't get the whole ghetto life style.
I think its beacuse they want to act cool. I ahve the same problem with my 14 year old she goes to a school with alot of mixed kids her fiends are black mostly

yeh, too bad she didn't have better parenting when she was growing up!
I was just at the grocery store, and there was this pretty young blond girl, my guess would be 18 ish, and she was with this stinky messy looking African American whose pants were hanging down by his knee's, and he was buying booze for her.
After I got home I wondered,...is she with him by choice? Or, is she with that person on her own free will?
There's been a lot of stories on the news lately about the amount of young girls being forced into the sex slavery business. I wonder if that is what I just witnessed at the grocery store, but didn't realize it at the time?
