I remember when it was "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays."

Im only 25 and non-religious, but I miss it. Its American, a tradition. It gives me a sense of happiness.

I remember the proper procedure for checking your hunting rifle into the Headmaster's office during hunting season (bolt open, unloaded, before school, etc.).

I also remember the designated smoking/dipping area outside the cafeteria. Strangely, the same bunch of goofballs never objected to the Pledge of Allegiance.

Listening to the World Series, with a transistor radio stuck to your ear....didn't matter who was playing, it was the World Series.

I remember getting dressed up and riding into town with my brothers in the freezing-ass cold to stand in line outside of the bank to tell Santa what I wanted for Christmas and getting an orange. These days, we call it "Obama-Care".

I must be really old!

I can remember when being honest and telling the straight truth was the expected norm in society (as opposed to all of the PC BS that prevades life now-a-days)!

I can also remember when if you did not have a job (intentionally), and lived off of hand-outs from others.......you were called a "bum".

I remember that in junior high and high school, if you acted up, i.e. misbehaved, you were sent to the Vice Principal's office for swats. In elementary school the teacher just took you to her desk and paddled your ass right there. If you weren't that bad, they just stuck you in the corner...facing the wall...for a while.

I remember in high school, that getting detention was a "bad" thing, not something to brag about.

I remember if you didn't do your schoolwork and failed, you repeated that same grade the next year. That was the ultimate insult and was really something you didn't want to happen.

If you weren't good enough to be on the team, you didn't get on the team. Didn't matter if you were disappointed...you weren't good enough and you tried harder next time.

I remember the hoohaa about the "under God" added to the Pledge of Allegiance. Added in 1954, it was never disputed until the left-wing a**holes started whining about the separation of church and state.

Hey well said man^^


I also remember kids used to get the cane for misbehaviour when I was in primary school...our head teacher had a wooden glass-fronted cabinet with varying lengths of cane prominently displayed for intimidating effect every time you went into her office lol. But nowdays criminal charges would apply to the principal if they used one. Think it had a deterrent effect on pretty much most kids except the really hard cases - but then nothing likely would have stopped them anyway.

Probably the ones starting out their long road to eventual jail time etc as adults

I remember in my (private) elementary and middle school that we had assembly with the whole school Monday-Wednesday-Friday. Every single time, we started by saying the Pledge of Alleigiance, then singing 'My Country, Tis of Thee.' By my 8th grade year, after a sucession of awful (read, liberal apologists) headmasters, we didn't anymore. At my high school, kids hardly even know the National Anthem, Pledge, or anything like that... I'm 17, and even I remember back that far.

I remember when my undiagnosed ADD was re-diagnosed as AWD (Ass Whippin Deficient) by the assistant principal in 8th grade. Diagnosis, treatment and cure were taken care of in one 5 minute session.

I remember holding the door for ladies and anyone older than myself, oh wait, that was this morning. I still get a charge out of the unrepentant feminazis not saying thank you and being reminded by a not so subtle "your welcome". Oh wait, that too was this morning.

I remember Saturday morning cartoons that did not have an underlying save the environment agenda and were just for entertainment value. I also remember Schoolhouse Rock. Someone recently asked me what the first line in the Constitution was and I sang the entire Preamble. You know "We the people, in order form a more perfect union, establish justice and insure domestic tranquility..."

I remember molded plastic army men in green and little NAZI soldiers in gray. I remember them all becoming good BB gun targets a few years later. I remember learning that rubber dodge balls are very inappropriate targets for you recurve bow with field tip arrows and the intense pain when one bounced back and hit me in the chin. I have a scar that reminds me to not be stupid every day when I shave.

I remember eating dinner at the table with the entire family. If you were late, you did not eat. There was no such thing as leftovers. A family of 5 including 3 sons will pack away some groceries. When dad whistled (you could hear if 5 blocks away) you hauled ass home or went hungry.
