Calling people names and arbitrarily belittling them give you a big ego trip?

The main difference between then and now is that back then we had hope and optimism for a better life. A life where we could put some money in the bank, have a roof over our head, and leave a little something to our kids when we die. Today people think a better life is the newest phone on the market, 5000 Facebook friends, a new car, and all of it bought on credit. There is no future for today's society, there is only today. Nobody thinks beyond the next paycheck. We have replaced our values of family and community with technology and virtual friends. That has nothing to do with the current POTUS or the next. It is our own stupidity for believing that updating your Facebook profile on a $300 phone is better than sitting down and eating dinner with your family.

Kinda pitiful that some of the high level drug dealers operate a more cohesive business and even militias than what our own country does.
China & so many foreign countries own our debt. We are very dependent on China for virtually all goods. Manufacturing has left here rapidly leaving us without many jobs & dependent on foreign governments for money and goods. Added to the problem is that you have automation & robotics which replaced workers. Also, the countries which were previously obliterated during various wars have recovered & produce goods for export which we depend upon. Oh let's not forget our dependency on foreign oil. Our government spends billions upon billions to make every other place better rather than invest in our own fuel dependency issues, US poverty solutions, education, etc. Many citizens would rather live better on the draw than make money to support themselves. So, to answer your question, I'm thinking we are going down the drain. Pessimistic, yes. <sigh> :(
Nothing pessimistic there, just facts. Good post!

Liberals took God out of the schools and then guess what happened: a bunch of school shootings, that's what. And then people act all surprised, as though they didn't know this would happen.
The people at Sandy Hook Elementary brought this on themselves. You took God out of the schools, God isn't watching over our children anymore, and bad things happen. You have only yourselves to blame.
And I am not the only one saying this, everyone from the CEO of Chik-Fil-A, to James Dobson, to Governor Mike Huckabee, to Billy Graham. We all know the truth.
And the same thing goes for our military. Because of Obama and his agenda of "political correctness" and his condoning of homosexual perversion, we now have more gays serving in the Army than we ever had in the Navy. And guess what: soldiers are getting killed. God is no longer watching over our soldiers.
You brought this on yourselves when you voted for Obama. Last election people in this country had a choice between doing what's right, or voting for the "cool" black president who had "gifts" for people who don't work for a living.
You had a choice. And you decided for all of us.
All over America, people are facing financial ruination. Floods, storms and wildfires are destroying millions of homes. Because God isn't watching over America anymore.
Turn your back on God, and God will smoke you. God has destroyed countries more powerful than America, just look in the Bible. History has a way of repeating itself.
And now this younger generation think they know better than God??? Guess what. If you think you know better than God, on judgment day God is going to load you into a smoker and barbecue you with the homosexuals, the muslims, and the rest of the human garbage.
But hope is not lost altogether, because there is a growing contingent of American patriots who believe in God and aren't afraid to say it. And we also believe in owning lots of guns, too. And there are more of us then there are of them. This is our country, not theirs. We are taking the country back.
Patriots like the Tea Party are the ones who put up the capital to colonize America, patriots like the Tea Party are the ones who fought in the revolutionary war that created our country in the first place. We will take over America. This is our country, not Theirs.

I don't know how much more we can take of the garbage in the white house.

President commie darkie muslim is busy throwing christians under the bus, attacking law-abiding gun owners, handing out foodstamps to people who don't work for a living (i.e., black people), and giving free healthcare to illegals.

This guy has been busy shredding the Constitution, and Christians need to wake up. Declare civil war against this government, bring down the country and restore America to the way things used to be back in the 50's and 60's.

Do you think your grandparent's generation would have voted for a homosexual-loving communist darkie? No, of course not. People in this country used to have respect, but not anymore evidently.

Liberals, blacks, gays, foreigners and young people are destroying this nation. This is our country, not theirs. Take the country back.

The erosion of community and family has been happening long before the current president took office. I'm not talking about the current economic climate or the Obamacare situation, I'm talking about technology and its place in our lives. I realize some will call me a hypocrite for being on here and saying this but I have confidence that my family priorities are in check. Everything in our society from music to commercials on television bemoans working hard and living a simple life.

So, you don't think the Obama administration has been a major contributor to a decline in our society? Are you that na´ve or just a die hard democrat?

The baby boomers were the greatest generation of all time, and the last generation of truly great Americans.

The baby boomers understood what Christian values meant, what hard work and sacrifice meant, and what American patriotism meant. Back when people had pride in America, remember those days?

The baby boomers had ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit; they created everything we take for granted: they invented things like Monday night football, 1-hour photo developing, washing machines, the light bulb, the pyramid scheme, and chocolate milk.

The baby boomer generation owned guns and had respect for firearms. When I was a kid we all grew up with rifles, and a lot of times took them to school with us so we could go hunting during lunch.

Back in the 50's and 60's there was no such thing as a school shooting. In fact, there was no crime at all back then. None whatsoever. You could leave your doors unlocked and nobody would even think about stealing your personal possessions.

Now I could go on and on about how great baby boomers are.

In comparison, today's generations of Americans are all just a paltry imitation. A sham. Young people aren't really "Americans" in any sense of the word, they simply inherited the title of "American" just because they were born in this country.

Young people have no appreciation for what the title "American" means, because they have never had to sacrifice or work hard for anything in their lives.

Young people have no life experiences or wisdom or intelligence. And just because they have an iPhone and can look up information on demand, they think they know better than you. They think they "deserve" more than you.

Hence, Obama is elected to give gifts to people who don't work for a living. Obama punishes those who are too successful and make too much money. "Pay your fair share," he says.

I am a big believer in karma. Baby boomers were successful because they had character. And so prosperity came to them. Karma.

Well soon the younger generations of Americans will get what's coming to them. Karma is going to body slam them like a fat sumo wrestler. It will be something to see when it happens. I like to see self-entitled, spoiled people get their comeuppance.

Is this what America has come to? A bunch of fat young people eating their meals out of McDonalds paper bags and playing video games all day??

Do you guys remember when the cops went into those hippie camp sites that the Occupy Wallstreet protesters set up, and the cops started clubbing the protestors with batons and spraying them with mace?

Now that's what I'm talking about. That is the kind of job I would look forward to everyday.

Yea, you would fit right in. Having the urge to oppress your own community is a valued and highly sought after trait within law enforcement.

First off, the baby boomers had more great people within the generation, BECAUSE THERE WERE MORE PEOPLE. On the next note, what is wrong with you? Are you really trying to say that the light bulb was invented by YOUR grand and all knowing generation?...LOL
The first mass marketed light bulb was invented by Edison.... wait for it.... wait for it.... IN THE YEAR 1879! Did your baby booming generation build time machines too? lol....
I mean no insult to the competent older folks around. I actually like being around older people, because the smart ones have a lot of useful knowledge and memories of the world.
But, for you Mr. Edwards, to sit and throw insult on young people and call them stupid... well.... you are a knuckle dragging idiot! You are a disgrace to your own generation and too damn dumb to realize it.
Remember this before you start in on young people again. EVERY GENERATION IS AN IMMEDIATE REFLECTION OF THE PREVIOUS. If you can comprehend that much... there is hope for you yet.

Racist, ignorant and disrespectful to other religions, declaring a bloody war on behalf of the Christian faith, and to boot dumb as a rock... Yep.. Idealizations of a true hypocrite... Sounds like a war evoked by someone with a person goal or vendetta, and using Christianity to draw in assistance from others to help spill the blood.

I don't know about anyone else, but it seems everything Carl types out is either bias on behalf of HIS own generation trying to glorify himself, completely off point, entirely false, or racial profiling.

HEY CARL!! These "Christians" you seem to want to recruit.. might just be able to smell your bullshit. It reeks! Go make a cardboard sign with sharpies include all of these ridiculous INSPIRATIONS and ACCUSATIONS that you have, preach damnation and forecast the anti-christs identity. Maybe then someone will teach you a few things and that you should not only respect your elderly, but mankind as a whole.

Better hop on that rascal and ride out of town if you can't show some respect and acknowledge people for what they do, instead of judging based on their age, race, religion, or nationality.

It is narrow minded people like you that hold Greeneville back from ever becoming something more than it is. No worries though! It will not be long before we will have fresh faces making decisions.

Done with you Carl. I tried to accept your opinions and let you be. When you insult my generation, other races, and want to declare a civil war that will cost the lives of men who are FORCED TO KILL.... well you went too far.

Jar Head- I like you. I like your posts. I have no issue with you but you are missing my point. I am not a democrat and I am not naive. I am not commenting on the president and his role in our current society. That is a different direction to go in. I have my own views on his job rating and most of them are not positive but I also believe that the crumbling of the family began before he took office. When money got tight and things were bleak previous generations tightened up, buckled up, and cut back. Things are bleak today but how many people do you see cutting back on things? Very few.
