Exactly. My same feelings about gays. I don't care one stinkin' iota what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom. If that's what trips your trigger, then good for you -- here, have a cookie. But the constant "in your face" push of the gay agenda by themselves, the media, hell, even the POTUS, it's constant and there's no escape from it.

I guess I'd never make a good gay. I don't let my sexuality define who I am as a person. Morals. Find some, please. Some shit SHOULD be left in the bedroom. Or closet. Or wherever. Not in my face because I simply do not care.

By the way, welcome to geezerdom, beber.

At 54, I wonder what the future will bring. We don't have to be Ozzie and Harriet, but this country seems to be in a downward spiral - morally speaking. I can't change anything so I guess I'll just watch. Let's see what the next generation does...

Yeah, I'm with you. I'm 61 and don't remember any nudity during the 60's like at Woodstock, or any Mini skirts, or any free and open sex during that time. Maybe it's because I'm 61, I can't remember...

good point

Lots of it is just real cheap ways sell you stuff and grab your attention - as The Jerk says ..."its a profit thing"

One of our most under appreciated freedoms is the off button.

You remember but
you forgot fishnet hosiery, frosted lipstick, and boots that were made for walking...

Speaking of Woodstock, I recently watched the documentary "Woodstock" again,
and something that I noticed this time was, where are the fat people? No kidding.
In 40 years the US has become extremely fat... I find that sadly obscene...

A perfect example is rap music...just a bunch of ghetto bums wearing their clothes backwards and cussing in sync.

Now, I'm hardly a prude, and use the Brooklyn alphabet regularly, (F'in A, F'in B,...), but there's a time and place for everything.
