    How true is this?

    Every single line should be stamped on the foreheads of every politician, head teacher and chief police officer, plus of course the raft of left-wing liberals who created this problem in the first place.

    How times have changed!!

    Scenario: Johnny and Mark get into a fistfight after school.

    1960 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up mates.

    2007 - Police are called, SWAT team arrives and arrests Johnny and Mark. Mobiles with video of fight confiscated as evidence. They are charged with assault, ABC's are taken out and both are suspended even though Johnny started it. Diversionary conferences and parent meetings conducted. Video shown on 6 internet sites.

    Scenario: Jeffrey won't sit still in class, disrupts other students.

    1960 - Jeffrey is sent to the principal's office and given a good paddling. Returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.

    2007 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. Counselled to death. Becomes a zombie. Tested for ADD. School gets extra funding because Jeffrey has a disability. Drops out of school.

    Scenario: Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a whipping with his belt.

    1960 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college, and becomes a successful businessman.

    Scenario: Vinh fails high school English.

    1960 - Vinh goes to Remedial English, passes and goes to college.

    2007 - Vinh's cause is taken up by local human rights group. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that making English a requirement for graduation is racist. Civil Liberties Association files class action lawsuit against state school system and his English teacher. English is banned from core curriculum. Vinh is given his Y10 anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.

    Scenario: Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers, puts them in a model plane paint bottle and blows up an anthill.

    1960 - Ants die.

    2007 - Security and ASIO are called and Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism. Teams investigate parents, siblings are removed from the home, computers are confiscated, and Johnny's dad goes on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.

    Scenario: Johnny falls during recess and scrapes his knee. His teacher, Mary, finds him crying, and gives him a hug to comfort him.

    1960 - Johnny soon feels better and goes back to playing.

    2007 - Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She faces three years in prison. Johnny undergoes five years of therapy. Becomes gay.

    And they all got CFS and/or Fibro from having mandatory thimerosol-containing vaccines.

    I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:

    A half-gallon of 2% milk,

    A carton of eggs,

    A quart of orange juice,

    A head of romaine lettuce,

    A 2 lb. can of coffee, and

    A 1 lb. package of bacon

    As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, "You must be single."

    I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed single. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

    Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: "Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that?"

    The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."

    I think I have seen them before but it surely was worth reading again. They are to true and funny to boot. However, some of it is also very sad how we got in this mess to begin with-ugh!!
