And this is what they call progress?
I remember back in the early 70's dressing out for fiz-ed
with belt tracks on the backs of my thighs, and the gym
teacher thought it was funny as crap. Asked if I smarted
off to the old man. My dad said ( a hard head makes for
a sore butt ) I suffered from both most of my teen years
and am somewhat functional now.
Very true. What happened to common sense and what are we doing to return to such a basic principle?

Would anyone stand up with a person or group who would stand for common sense solutions?
There will be no return to common sense allowed...we place too high a value on what is pathetically called higher education and too much emphasis on political correctness. The stripes on the legs in gym class today would result in the teacher who thought it was funny and didn't call the division of children and families or the local police immediately being fired, their teaching credentials revoked, then the Father would be arrested, the kid would go to foster care, where they would be lost resulting in the case worker being fired and brought up on charges, the child would grow up mentally unstable and would be placed in jail because they have closed all the state hospitals, which would result in the director of children and families being found in contempt of court and fined 80,000 dollars, where upon facing jail time the director would retire, causing a nationwide search for a suitable replacement director who would be willing to go to jail, because the governor has cut the budget of all funds relating to hospital programs for the mentally ill, of course the governor is also retiring and the new governor doesn't care because he is the former attorney general who approved the judge who caused the last director to retire ..... and on and on it goes
That's the funniest and saddest thing I've read in a long time. It wouldn't be sad or funny if it weren't 100 percent true.

Will it ever change? I don't think so, I think the world is headed for it's grand finale.
