Wow. There was a day when the elderly were respected and treated with utmost care. What happened? How has this society changed into the self serving unscrupulous society it has become? Used to be that children and elderly were OFF limits. Now they are targets. What do we do to get our self respect as a united Country back? I dont know, I just keep plugging along trying to raise my children with respect, morals and values but im just 1 person (not that im the only 1 out there doing this), I cant change society. WE, as a Country have to do that. Lets take it back somehow out of the hands of theifs and swindlers and gang-bangers, etc. Any idea's?

They had better put a ball and chain on this unscrupulous bottom-feeder. She'll be on the run in a flash. Once convicted, make her work it off, under supervision.

Confine her to bedrest in a nursing home, let's say a not so nice one for 6 months. Oh yeah, let her enjoy a bed sore or two and the fine food. Maybe even find a caretaker like herself to depend on for her daily needs. Let the punishment fit the crime with a twist.

I hope she lives to be 100 and has to be taken care of by the time she is 50. A person that will take advantage of the elderly is no better than a child molester!!

Here's an idea. Stop thinking that things were all wonderful in olden days. I knew of a senile great grandmother who was locked into a room, fed like an animal with food put on the floor and seldom had her diapers changed. I also knew a young family who chained their kids to the bed and fed them in dog dishes. I knew of a 13-year-old girl who got pregnant by a horrible old neighbor and the girl was sent to the State Reformatory for a year. This, and many other travesties occurred in the 20th century when there was no such thing as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid or even state welfare. I could go on and on with stories of what it was like when I was young and lived in the country in Ohio. So all you people who keep on harping about the "good old days" are just dreaming. Try making life better every day and you will be contributing to a better world. That's the least you can do. Just bitching about what others are doing wrong won't get it.

You are a very sad, negative person. I am surprised you survived your horrible life. I think you might be the one who decides to harp on the negative. Many older people will say life was much better long ago. Of course there have always been travesties but if you are being honest with yourself things as a whole are much worse today than they were in the "olden" days.-

In case anyone cares, someone is pretending to be "Dode" with a Chico ISP. See post #7. That is not me. I am Dode Penrod with AOL as my ISP.

I think anyone and everyone should attend her trial and make her feel the unkindness she showed others by stealing thier life savings away.She should be made to eat canned cat food and bathe in a toilet(once a week)while working as a roadkill cleaner!

I think in everyones lives that are getting older they can remember some of the bad from years ago. I try to think of the fun & good times, the friends I made & still converse with yet today. Through your life you go through many changes. You take the lumps with the laughs. People now days live a very hurried life. What's missing is families being together. Years ago we all sat down at the table & had dinner (or supper) together & listened to what happened with each other during the day. This is a thing of the past. Everyone goes their separate ways. Kids are so busy trying to keep up with all their friends in activities that sometimes they grab something & they are out the door. Moms & Dads have such a hectic schedule that there is no alone time for each other. Everyone leaves everyone notes to their where-a-bouts. Commuting time takes up valuable time that could be spent with each other. Week ends is catch up time with what couldn't be done during the week. I miss the good ole days, but now I can spend more time doing for my kids & grandchildren as I am now retired. I do volunteer work & love it. I keep my mind busy, but still find time to socialize. I marvel at the changes. Technology has opened up a whole new life for the elderly if they wish to partake. I enjoy life, what more can I say. I do not dwell on the tough times we all went through in our younger years. It taught me much.

MY REPLY TO DODO:
As you can see I wasnt "Bitching" about anyones anything. I posted that I AM doing my part, I beleive thats the LEAST I can do. Your'e idea of the good ole days is skewered. There has always been bad but compared to today, what was going on then was a very small % of what we have today. Unless ofcourse you grew up with gang bangers, drive-by's and meth heads?. If so, sorry for your luck but boy are you a nasty witch. Reread posts before you reply ya prune. Its pretty obvious youd prefer to sit there and spew hate instead of trying to come up with an idea for our future and the future of our children, etc. Maybe you need to retire your posting fingers, youve obviously been over-exposed to yourself.

And I thought I was complimenting you on what you are doing. You said you were teaching your children to do the right things and I said that was the best you could do and it beats sitting around wishing for the "good old days" which actually never existed. But maybe with all your righteousness about how we need to take back our country, you can tell me just when it was that we "lost" our country. Or when was it taken away from "us?" Was it only since blogging began that you found out our country had been taken from us? Did you ever own it? Seems like you're the one with an attitude, and you call me a "nasty witch?" But in the 20 years I had homes in both Southern California and in Paradise, I never saw so much negativity and bitching as I saw on the Ridge. People seem to be very unhappy and there are more drugs and alcohol abuse in Paradise than there is out in civilization where people have a future, not just an end of life experience.

I'm also amazed how many people seem to think they have the right to tell me to shut up or want to imagine that I hate everyone the way they do. I've had a wonderful life, have done more than most people, been more places, seen more things and have enjoyed myself immensely. I don't travel as much as I used to, but I don't sit around and live on memories. To each his own. But look at the subject of this forum and you may get a clue about life in Paradise. Don't ask me how you can "take it back!"

Dode, please take your negative butt somewhere else!!
Maybe..Haiti.
Just get lost and stop trying to be some kind of a media personality by writing to and posting local newspapers.
Get over yourself!
Try doing some good!

The fact that you're from Ohio is explanation enough.
