Been Busy!

Sorry for not updating, just have been busy and haven't really had anything worthy of posting. I am working part-time right now due to my health, so I have been watching alot of National Geographic Channel. I have now come to the conclusion that most wild animals are way more civilized than human beings. Elephants, lions etc all live in their prides, nurture their young, and basically provide for their family. Woe to anything that threatens their offspring. They will offer themselves as prey in order to protect their young.

Watching this made me think about humans and family values. There are parents who can't choose between a 1/5 of whiskey vs. feeding their young. The life skills that they teach nowadays seems to be more street survival than anything else. Sometimes the leader of the human family, matriarch or patriarch, are being raised by their young or they simply abandon them to grandparents or the state.

What the fuck happened to MAN, when a mother lion is a better parent than he?

I understand what you are saying, but the jungle can be a pretty rough place too.

When I was younger, I had a lot of "eyes" on me-teachers, neighbors, strangers. They would not hesitate to call my parents if I was up to no good. These days, you are alone raising kids.

WM- My friend who is 74 told me that the world today is a very confusing place for him to live in. Pushing one for English, not being able to speak to a live person. That the kids who are at the library are watching porn while he is trying to work. He claims to feel like a dinasour where he and his kind are almost extinct. You would like him.

Lou- More proof of the saying that "It takes a whole village to raise a child" They say 70% of college grads are moving back home with degrees as they still can't find work. Very sad...
