    Good morning, care for a cup of coffee, looks like rain, Oh, the bones hurt, this morning......What do you think about....? Don't go there.

    I have seen two threads, in the last two days, one is just dead, and lying there, the other one completely disappeared.....Why? Because, not everyone has bought into the politcally correct mentallity, that we have to weigh and temper every word, which comes out of our mouth, because it just might offend some poor soul, and God knows, everyone, these days, is walking around with their hearts on their sleeves, or a chip on their shoulder.

    We may as well just call this forum Coffee Clutch, because I sure can't wander up onto the porch, and say whatever is on my mind, even though, that's what the title suggests.

    This whole mentallity, or group think, is the reason children can no longer play games like dodge ball or Red Rover, or why there are no winners or losers, and everyone should get a prize.....Why even waste the money on feel good trinkets, if there's no real meaning to them?

    Yet, amazingly, with all of this hand wringing, nanny statism, which has taken over, someone forgot to tell the kids, not to be walking, with traffic, wearing all black clothing, after dark.....Or better yet, and this is true, lying down, at the school bus stop, in the early morning fog, with your head on your backpack, right on the white line...I, literally, could have crushed the kid's head, like a rotten melon, if I hadn't been paying attention.

    And you wonder why I like to hold onto some of yesteryear's mindset.

    Nope...not seeing the part where people have a right not to be offended....

    As for kids, sometimes they need to learn the hard way. I saw my sons about to hurt themselves on many occasions. If it wouldn't result in death or an expensive emergency room visit, I let them suffer the natural consequences of their actions. They are still alive at 21 and 22 [​IMG]
