Signs that you know show we live in a fu*ked up society these days....

Share your experiences, but keep politics out of it please. This thread is meant for everyone.

One sign I'm seeing right now...
I'm at the park with Sue and Baron. Sitting at the picnic tables, and watching them just....go. play. Have fun. Be a boy and a dog. Good life.

I look around, and realize that although I noticed it before, it didn't really sink in. The tables... are chained to the concrete slab. Ostensibly to keep people from rearranging them I'm sure... but I'm willing to bet one or more has been stolen in the past.

I would say you are correct. If it's not chained down they will still it and if it is chained down in time it will be stolen and the chain as well......

Someone would steal them for sure. Can't trust anyone.

Have you seen anything lately that stands out to you as a sign of our times?

I'm talking about crap like the big billboard warning labels on guns and coffee. Barred windows on day care centers, churches, and food pantries. Display lawn furniture cabled to a post inside a store.

Some of these, like the furniture, are so people don't mess with stuff and rearrange things, move stuff around. But it amazes me that we live in such an impolite society that this is necessary.

TV commercials that make absolutely no sense and have virtually nothing to do with the product they are advertising.

I saw an advertisement for a hamburger joint claiming their patties are "Now made with 100% beef!"
At first I wondered why such disclosure was necessary. Then it sank in and I wondered "What have they been serving?"

We have reached the point, that we are interfering with natural selection, and that is what will bring the end to the human race. It wasn't that long ago, we were completely responsible for our own survival. If you were lazy, or stupid, you starverd to death. now we have all kinds of programs to keep the ones who would have not lived long enough to reproduce alive, and encourage them to reproduce ....Medical advancements are also keeping the undesirables alive, and reproducing....Bicycle helmets...The yellow sign on the deck of your lawn mower, that tells you not to put your hand under it when the mower is running.......We are getting stupider, and stupider, and stupider..........LOL

I'm afraid this is extremely accurate. I've also noticed that those with lower intelligence levels seem to reproduce at a very efficient pace.
