    A great message. Thanks, Mr. Pinko!

    I thank God I was brought up in those times, when common sense ruled, and “political correctness” was non-existent.

    We actually had a fat kid in grammer school, but not by todays standards.

    I loved being a kid in the late 50s – 60s. I miss my Stingray bike.

    Mr. Pinko, awesome. Be home when the street lights come on. That was the rule in our house growing up.

    This must scare the hell out of the left. A generation of people who fought and fended for themselves and their accomplishments based on their own merits and hard work.

    Maybe they are just extending this social experiment observation today and taking away everything we have to se how we fare or what we’ll do next…..but I wouldn’t push us lefties, you might not like the outcome.

    We used to bike on our bikes, single gear bikes, Schwins if you’re lucky, dozens of miles from home. No helmet, no water, no one knows where you went cause you didn’t know or care. Just be home before the street lights came on

    YES! I love your posts Mr. Pinko. I have the scars to prove how we were able to grow up and “let that be a lesson to you” era. It’s what made us who we are today. Strong. Amen!

    That’s some wisdom from Sarasota. Now if they’d only get over their love affair with Charlie Crist.

    Oh those horrible parents of yesteryear. The terrible things they said to us:
    “If you don’t stop crying, I’ll give you something to cry about.” “If you don’t stop that I’ll cut your head off.”

    Not sure I’m all that fond of his politics, but Bill Cosby’s description of “The Belt” came, I’m pretty sure, from interviewing my dad.

    “we had never seen the belt, but we had heard about it. The belt was nine feet long, eight feet wide, and it had hooks on it, and it would rip the meat off your body if it ever hit you.”
