Here's a prime example of what's been discussed. A biography about the guy who wrote and sang "This Land Is Your Land". Born in 1912, he is part of the Greatest Generation. Bet his life was pretty typical, too.

"Early life: 1912–30
Woody Guthrie's Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, childhood home as it appeared in 1979

Guthrie was born in Okemah, a small town in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, the son of Nora Belle (née Sherman) and Charles Edward Guthrie.[4] His parents named him after Woodrow Wilson, then Governor of New Jersey and the Democratic candidate soon to be elected President of the United States.

Charles Guthrie was an industrious businessman, owning at one time up to 30 plots of land in Okfuskee County. He was actively involved in Oklahoma politics and was a Democratic candidate for office in the county. When Charles was making stump speeches, he would often be accompanied by his son.[5] Charles Guthrie was involved in the 1911 lynching of Laura and Lawrence Nelson. His son wrote three songs about the event and said that his father was later a member of the revived Ku Klux Klan.[6]

Guthrie's early family life was affected by several fires, including one that caused the loss of his family's home in Okemah. His sister Clara later died in a coal-oil (used for heating) fire when Guthrie was seven, and Guthrie's father was severely burned in a subsequent coal-oil fire.[7] The circumstances of these fires, especially that in which Charley was injured, remain unclear. It is unknown whether they were accidents or the result of actions by Guthrie's mother Nora, who was afflicted with Huntington's disease, although the family did not know this at the time. It leads to dementia as well as muscular effects.[8]

Nora Guthrie was eventually committed to the Oklahoma Hospital for the Insane, where she died in 1930 from Huntington's disease. Judging from the circumstances of her father's death by drowning, researchers suspect that George Sherman suffered from the same hereditary disease.[9]

When Nora Guthrie was institutionalized, Woody Guthrie was 14. His father Charley was living and working in Pampa, Texas, to repay his debts from unsuccessful real estate deals. Woody and his siblings were on their own in Oklahoma; they relied on their eldest brother Roy for support. The 14-year-old Woody Guthrie worked odd jobs around Okemah, begging meals and sometimes sleeping at the homes of family friends. According to one story, Guthrie made friends with an African-American blues harmonica player named "George", whom he would watch play at the man's shoe shine booth. Before long, Guthrie bought his own harmonica and began playing along with him. In another interview 14 years later, Guthrie claimed he learned how to play harmonica from a boyhood friend, John Woods, and that his earlier story about the shoe-shining player was false.[10]"

Y'know, its pretty amusing that the Skank and Inkstain are SO determined to re-write Jewish law in their Catholic image - but they're both pretty lousy christians.

<quoted text>Oh so what do you do miss "I'M TOUGH AND WILL WARD OFF THE BIG BAD PROLIFERS WHO ACTUALLY WANT TO HELP GIVE WOMEN AN ALTERNATIVE"?
What do you do for women who FEEL forced to abort but have no choice? Do you GIVE THEM ANOTHER CHOICE? No,you don't. You escort them to kill their child and disappear when the emotional or pysical consequences emerge.
You're an anti-woman people please who only cares about killing. How about you offer her TRUE help.
I do Skanky. I make sure these women are fully educated in their choices, and allow them to make their OWN choice unencumbered by idiots like you who would only tell them what you WANT them to know.

The core difference between you and I is I'm not afraid to allow women to learn about ALL of their options, then TRUST them to make the right choice for themselves.

YOU on the other hand, would like to keep them stupid, so you could sway them to do what YOU want.

I DO offer true help. I offer education. I offer support. I offer anything and everything they need to help themselves make the best choices FOR THEM.

MOST of all is what I DONT offer.

I DONT offer phony religous rhetoric. I dont offer them threats of eternal damnnation, and I dont offer them outright lies about what their choices entail. That's YOUR kind's offerings.

You dont want to offer anything really. MOST important you dont want to offer them the power to make their own choices as fully educated women.

@@ Only in your wet dream does such bullshit exist.

I'll never understand why you have such a burning desire for women that do something against what YOU want them to do, to suffer forever.

THANKFULLY, MOST dont suffer. If they're suffering long lasting guilt that affects their marriages and relationships years later, they have a LOT more mental issues than guilt over an abortion, and they SHOULD be in long term psychiatric care.

Poor kids have no set standards.
Sure they do. They're simply not standards YOU happen to approve of. That doesn't make their standards wrong.

YOUR approval isn't a requirement for someone's standards to be perfectly fine.

Before my daughter went to college, she was seeing a guy (who she's now engaged to) that lived in Virginia. When he could get to Baltimore, he would stay over with us.

He stayed in a pull out bed in the other room, and to my knowledge, they respected our request that they not fool around under our roof. He was happy to be able to see her and spend time he othewise would have missed out on, and he respected our wishes.

COULD they have fooled around and we didn't know it? Sure. But here's the thing: at some point you have to trust your kids. I knew this boy and his parents well enough to know that I believe he could be trusted, and to this day, he's NEVER given me a reason to NOT trust him.

Again, different standards. I would understand why your daughter would say no, especially if she doesn't trust your grandchild or the boyfriend, and maybe doesn't know the parents of the boy. Doesn't make her wrong, but your grandchild certainly SHOULD know the standard of her mother. She set it and is standing by it. Good for her.

But for YOU to claim that there's no set standards for kids is COMPLETE bullshit.

WHat's a set standard for one isn't the standard for another. ANd there's NOTHING wrong with that.

This is funny coming from the twit that has spent the last few pages bitching that everyone needs to live up to the same standards. HERS. Despite not knowing everything.....AND not being willing to learn.

These are frightening stats. Are you saying it was worse before?

I guarantee it was worse before. There was NO regulation, and no place for women to go. So they stayed and often died.

Where do you think its believed that one of the origins for the term "rule of thumb" comes from Inkstain? Its from the Christian view that a man could beat a woman with a stick no bigger around than the width of his thumb. It was to moderate the beatings women would get from their husbands.

Women didn't have anywhere to go, so they stayed and were abused.

Why is it not surprising that you think this was a better time than now when women DO have alternatives?

Jews do NOT say that Inkstain as I've proven.

Apparently ONE Jew said it back in 2007, perhaps he's been educated since then. But dont let the facts deter you from clinging to that erronious comment like a life preserver.

Well that backfired. Good for her.
See you can learn by the negative. Growing up in a single parent home, I knew how much I was missing. Raising kids in a stable two parent home was super important to me. I did that. There were times that were tough but I always knew that if there was anyway possible, I would keep their parents together. Now children are the last consideration.
Yeah, by all means, lets keep those kids in a two parent home where the parents can't stand each other, where there is mental and physical abuse, or worse - apathy.

That's SO much better for kids.

@@ You ARE a jackass.

Oh and BTW, I call bullshit that you knew how much you were missing. You can't miss what you never knew. You can say that in HINDSIGHT, but at the time? There's no way you could miss what you didnt know.

<quoted text>My childhood best friend (we were nearly inseparable for 8 years) and her 7 siblings endured abuse from their dad and I never knew about it, they kept it so secret. He broke her sister's jaw, putting her in the hospital. No red flag, no questions, nothing. I was shocked and despondent when A. told me of this side of her childhood, years later. Her dad was a nurse and paramedic, and very well respected in ours community. Who knew and didn't say anything, I wonder...
Same here. When I talked about my friend last night, it was a similar situation. I'll never forget my mom calling me at work and saying "Do you remember your friend sharon, what was her married name?" and when I told her Lopatka she gasped and told me to get the paper, it was front page news.(I'm not worried about posting her name, she's dead and her story is all over the internet as being one of the first people to be murdered by someone she met online) Needless to say, the phone lines were burning up that night with all of us calling each other saying "did you know?- did you suspect?" And of course nobody did.

Two years later when it came out that her father and at least one of her brothers had been abusing her and her sister growing up, THEN many of us were able to start making connections about certain incidents and how she ended up dying.

Inkstain and the Skank would like to turn a blind eye, or dimminish the horror so many in so called G-D FEARING HOMES experienced. "It was RARE" they claim. Bullshit. Its as rare as a blue and brown eyed Husky or Malamute. Just like women having abortions beyond viability for medical reasons arent as RARE as they'd like others to believe.

Shit, according to the Skank, ANY baby can be born and allowed to "die naturally" because that's better than aborting.@@

I guess from my post you could deduce the fifties. Actually the time frame I meant was more late fifties, early sixties. I could just as well mean the forties, fifties, sixties or even the seventies. They all to my point about today and probably back twenty years.
Uh no. YOu specifically discussed the 50's in the link you gave which I already proved.

<quoted text> Being "free and loose" regarding habits(i.e eating dinner at the table instead of in front of the tv..or having to say grace before meals together vs just digging in) is not comparable to morals.
Times have changed and must has been lost. Not one person can deny that there is a negative over all change regarding family life. My brother is separated for years from his wife,while raising a daughter. He KNOWS that this is all his daughter knows. It's not normal and/or desirable to say the least even if she doesn't know any better. They try to make it work but that in itself is a dysfunction and he knows it. She lives it. Going back and forth to each parents house takes its toll. She then has learned how to manipulate in order to get her way during those teenage years. THAT is not "normal" even though many are in divorced situation.
Parents are afraid of their kids. ESPECIALLY teenagers who start with the independent attitudes. Normally,teenagers go through their moments,but add dsyfunction and that kid rebels even more.
The parents are racked with typical "working mom guilt" so they tend to cower from potential confrontations,so they coddle. Not only that but MANY parents are bad examples and then they expect to teach their child morals. Kids are not stupid. Tell a kid that they are too young to have sex,while YOU are sleeping with your bf or gf,and they will laugh you out of town.
You have to live morals in order to teach them.
Actually, your brother "trying to make it work" is NOT dysfunctional. Its NORMAL. That's what the best parents do.

You are SO mired in your own bullshit, you dont even see how stupid your claims are.

<quoted text> Less? Yes.

Once upon a time,kids would curse,steal,sleep with their bf/gf,etc....but they hid it. Why? Because they had guilt. Guilt then leads you to hid your dirty deeds.
Today,kids don't hide things. WHY? because they aren't feeling the guilt and because many live in such dsyfunction that they don't even acknowledge right from wrong anymore. They have become cold to the consequences/ramifications to their actions..
Riiiiiiiiiight. Because its SO much better to hide and live in guilt, than to do things openly and more carefully as MANY kids DO try to do today.

@@ Man, what kind of fuckedup mindset do you have Skanky, that you think hiding and guilt is somehow "better"?? Those kids who were hiding and guilty were the ones having dangerous back alley abortions too. Many of those girls died or were so messed up they could never have kids again. But you think THAT is better too apparently.

Teenage pregnancies are at an ALL TIME LOW. There are less pregnant teens today than there has been since 1946!!

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-574119...

WHY? Because they're better educated and more open.

You're an IDIOT.

You're SO quick to write off the kids today. Well fuck you sister, seems we're doing something RIGHT for the rates to be DOWN.

Skanky just makes this crap up as she goes along, then acts as if she has some credibility.
