Scenario 1:

1958 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

2010 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.


Scenario 2:

1958 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.

2010 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.


Scenario 3:
Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.

1958 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.

2010 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for ADD. The school gets extra money from the state because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4:
Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a whipping with his belt. Billy must do chores to earn the money to pay for the window.

1958 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and becomes a responsible, successful businessman.

2010 - Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is removed to foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 6:
Pedro fails high school English.

2010 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.

Scenario 7:
Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.

Things are different now. Times have changed. Can't live in the past or by the past way of "doing things".

Back in 1958, black people had to sit at the back of the bus, go to separate diners, and use separate restrooms.

While living in a "Jim Crow' era is a conservative fantasy, those days are over, even if it does make their mouths water.

Where TF do you get off lecturing people that have actually accomplished something on how to live? You haven't the vaguest clue what you're talking about..

DEMOCRATS steeltwink. DEMOCRATS. If you don't know WTF you're talking about, STFU tool.

During the Reconstruction period of 1865–1877 federal law provided civil rights protection in the South for "freedmen" — the African Americans who had formerly been slaves. In the 1870s, white Democrats gradually returned to power in southern states, sometimes as a result of elections in which paramilitary groups intimidated opponents, attacking blacks or preventing them from voting. Gubernatorial elections were close and disputed in Louisiana for years, with extreme violence unleashed during the campaign. In 1877 a national compromise to gain southern support in the presidential election resulted in the last of the federal troops being withdrawn from the South. White Democrats had taken back power in every Southern state.[4] The white, Democratic Party Redeemer government that followed the troop withdrawal legislated Jim Crow laws segregating black people from the state's white population.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Crow_laws

"Jim Crow" had nothing to do with conservatism. It had and still has everything to do with your beloved @#$%ing racist donkeys.

Gawd aint that the truth?

My 10 year old grandson had 2 kids gang up on him walking home from the bus last week and he fought back. They punched him repeatedly in the chest and he was defending himself, which is what I've always told him to do. The police were called and though these 2 little bastards are notorious in my daughter's neighborhood for beating up kids younger than they are, it was swept under the rug because my grandson fought back. Back in the day, it would have just been a fight to the finish.

I'm a huge fan of bringing paddling back to the schools. I tied Sister Margaret's veil to the seat in 5th grade as she was standing next to the projector in front of me and when she walked forward, off came the veil and it revealed her to be bald except for her bangs. Everyone in the class thought it was funny but after bending over in the Principal's office and getting a couple of good whacks with the paddle that had holes in it, I quickly learned that trying to be a clown in class wasn't all that cool. When I got home that day from school, I got whacked again as the Principal called my Mom. My ass hurt for a week.

If parents can't control their kids in today's world, might I suggest . . .

Some changes are for the good. A lot are not. The two can be separated, by both conservatives and even liberals.

Well done!! Well done!! I'm confident that yours was an impressive body of work.

I am the man I am today because I got my butt pounded for at least some of my infractions. It's good for the soul. Little boys, especially, need a good "lickin" on a regular basis to keep them familiar with the command structure.

Liberals have difficulty making that separation.

Lesson: Progressives are idiots seeking control over everybody's lives
