Much the same as 2001-now hasn't been a grand party for most Americans.

You side with things that over illustrate the values they wanted instilled versus what was happening in real life. Due to my career choices I've been all around the country and in several parts of the world. The life you claim was a reality was never such. Sure there was probably a Ward Cleaver in every community but there was also a Keith Richards, no matter what decade or century it was.

Sodomy, homosexuality, adultery, substance abuse, fornication etc... were all dealt with in the bible, they're hardly new concepts. Are you suggesting that suddenly in the late 50's in America there were no participants in vices?

Right about the time of the Cleavers, the Mafia was a huge factor, why didn't that ever come up on the show? The Untouchables dealt with it.

What I said was that the KKK was a reaction against lawless blacks and Jewish carpetbaggers who were running amok.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
And how did they deal with the lawless whites and the Protestant or Catholic greedheads?

You are continuing to show your racism and prejudice.

That is now.
I'm talking about then.
Then as in when?

Go as far back as you can in the Old Testament, each and every thing you claim is modern is as old as Moses, at least.

All drugs were wholly legal until the early 1900's. Alcohol has been around since man, re:mead. Marijuana seeds have been found in Chinese archaeological sites dating thousands of years ago.

And then there's opium, that's been around for millenia as well.

Nothing you blame society about is anything new. That's where your mediocrity begins.

Shoooooot. On television even the reality shows aren't based on reality.
Way back I tried to watch an episode of Fear Factor. Within 5 minutes I had enough. Screaming is one thing I never got. It never helps in any situation outside of being stranded.

Oh, I hope your holidays were wonderful and your new year is the best ever.

No Bob, you've stated that people don't go around lynching and terrorizing others for no reason, that such activity is not within the realm of normal human behavior.

You're suggesting that the KKK was justifiably murdering and terrorizing people for decades.

I'm suggesting that normal human behavior includes things that aren't pretty. Not "normal" in the sense of being civil. Normal in the sense of temporal consistency.

I'm suggesting that your opinions are reprehensible, and irresponsible. They amount to justification of murder by blaming the victims.

Yep he did. He claims on one hand to be an oil baron and yet a few months back he made a statement about something he saw while he was plowing a parking lot.
Maybe he meant "oil-barren".

The mafia were unknown in suburban and rural America. They were the equivalent of urban gangs today.

In the 50's the Mafia was alive and well and way before that.
Depends what circle you traveled in.
I was more aware of its doings than most....enough said.

My first wife was Italian from western PA, so I know what you mean. The mafia were alive and well in major urban areas with a smattering plying the local trade in smaller cities like Steubenville.
I grew up in the suburbs of Boston in the '60s and '70s and was well aware of where they operated...Southie, Charlestown, Dorchester and East Boston, along with the inner 'suburbs' of Everett, Revere, Malden, Medford, Somerville...etc.

No moron, I haven't. Did you miss the quotation marks I placed around the word "suburbs" in my comment? If you knew the Boston area, you'd know why. It's like calling Whitehall a "suburb" of Columbus.
And for folks in places like Cadiz, Toronto, Wintersville, Mingo Junction and Brilliant, Steubenville is the big city.
