Oh my that's a classic LOL

re your post about demonstrations etc.

It has never ceased to amaze me that in the 70s demonstrations were pretty much the order of the day so that people could let themselves be heard. At that time with flower power in full force the youth took to the streets to use their right to free speech.

For me the problem with the US right now is that the youth are not as socially conscious as they used to be. To be honest, as I said in that one post of mine, kids/teens/young adults all have far too many distractions in life. Now most goals concern the acquiring of "things". Mostly things that they don't need and certainly don't matter in order to have a good life. But it's what they are told they need. I think this drive towards commercialism and capticalism really makes them apathetic to what is REALLY necessary in order for the US to move forward in a strong way.

I think a lot of the youth are so used to just getting what they want that they just have expectations of suceess without working for it.

The older generations can only do so much to make changes but it really is up to the younger ones as well.

This picture had me cracking up!

I liked your spring image a few entries down, I loved the flowers emerging here in Germany lately and the warm weather too! I ran around with my camera the other day taking photos of the budding spring flowers! Take care!

The New York Times had an article yesterday about the infamous "British Memo." Although I should be shocked, I wasn't. And that is sad.

What Belinda said is so "right on." Sad but true. Today's kids/young adults here in America DO think they are owed everything without having to work for it. UGH.

Even though I live in Atlanta, this was the first time I saw this pic, James. How telling!

Would "loathe" be too strong a word for your feelings regarding this administration James? :)

I love it!Good one.
Kids are just as spoiled in Canada. I think it is all of North America. Too much with no effort and no repercussions on any actions.
Sad but true.
