I may be the only one out here thinking this (i doubt it but it's possible), What the heck is going on in this day and age? It troubles me to think that not too far back in America's past there was a chicken coop on every corner and people raised cows, pigs and rabbits for meat. And now it's all fallen by the wayside and has been replaced with Sonic, McDonalds, Wendy's and Burger King. Most of today's generation (unfortunately my generation) has let the things that used to keep this country running grow old and die with the people who tried to instill the values they had into the next generation. All the while the generation that follows is oblivious to the sacrifice their parents and grandparents made to bring them into the world. Hardly anybody raises their own meat anymore it seems because "I don't think that's humane", a fresh egg to them is disgusting because it "came from a chickens butt", and growing a garden is "for old people". So you'd rather buy your meat that's filled with steroids, growth hormones and God knows what else, and was still killed at some point. Buy your eggs from the store that, despite popular belief stiff come from chicken's butts, AND are filled with growth hormones, antibiotics and steroids. And buy your vegetables from the grocery store that are grown in mexico, sprayed with pesticides, shot up with all kinds of yummy stuff that'll kill ya and are genetically altered in the first place and have hardly any health benefits. It's like eating Styrofoam flavored like vegetables. When is this country going to get a grip on reality and brind back the "Good ol' days" of Mayberry, Little house on the prairie and The Ponderosa of Bonanza. Where people helped people, did what was right and got by without the fancy college degrees, and all the cool gadgets of today. Now correct me if I'm wrong for posting this but I'd venture to guess alot y'all here agree with me. I believe we've only begun to scratch the surface of the issue so please post. Rants and raves, Stories from Grandpa, or just things you think could be done better in the world. I can't be the only crazy one out here right?!
