O/T Honest Abe

A father noticed that his son was spending way too much time playing computer games. In an effort to motivate the boy into focusing more attention on his schoolwork, the father said to his son, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace."

The son replied, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was the President of The United States." [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: O/T Honest Abe

I don't find that funny at all (yep, I'm a wet blanket!)

And THAT is exactly the problem with many of today's kids... they have no respect for their fathers... mothers... or anyone else... little smart-ass buggers...

Fathers and mothers are not doing their jobs and their kids and society suffer.

But Larry, it was a joke! Enjoy some humor occasionally without looking for a dark side. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/headspin.gif[/img]

Yep, I know it was... but I had a humorectomy on this subject many years ago when one of my kids first decided it would be fun to talk back to me.... it was also the last time it ever happened. You gotta remember that they outnumbered me!

I don't send mixed messages, I'd have put a boot on that video game and ground it into dust! Problem solved!

Some things I just don't find funny... and this is one of 'em.

Re: O/T Honest Abe

Agree!

Many of today's kids are living proof abortion should be legal -- maybe even retro-active!

Yes, that's true. However, I feel it's because what was not normal 40 or 30 or 20 or even 10 years ago is now normal... hence yesterday's immorality is today's morality. So, as Society ages, it becomes softer, more decadent until it rots from within and is replaced.

It's a cycle of humility, pride, prosperity and destruction.
