    I don't know the age of many of the members here...but I would consider myself part of the generation your talking about. The lack of respect has come from well before my time.

    What's scares me is how blind the last generation has been to put the country in the position it's in now...and now everyone is too lazy and entitled to fix it.

    Have you seen the movie, "Idiocracy?"
    You can have good intentions and not be right.

    Justice For Zimmerman!
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    I would prefer to go somewhere else rather than engage the drunk. Bars are a place where all kinds of behavior might be found so I go there understanding I may have to be more tolerant.

    There does seem to be a lot of "freedom for me, but not for thee" that goes on around here.

    As far as I know, swearing is no more of a legal justification for punching someone in the nose than being followed and/or contacted by a neighborhood watch member is. If vulgar words were enough justification for punching a guy out, then being called an "asswipe" for using such words would be just as much justification for them to do the same thing it would seem.

    It's kind of funny too, that the justification arises out of defending the honor of his wife or "other women" in the bar or tavern, but what would happen if the vulgar language was coming from a woman? Would his wife then be obligated to defend his virgin ears and those of "other men" in the bar or tavern?

    Lots of twists and turns in that post. Kinda hard to follow, but I'm a fairly "manly" man, and I've never felt obligated to follow any such code as described in it. I certainly would never refer to it as my right to impose my code for living on others who have the real, unfettered and legal right to tell me to take a hike.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Not trying to justify this but in Cowboy bars it's a whole different take on rules for men and rules for women. Where men are men and women are proud of it. Corny but true. I've had to throw men out of a bar for fighting, because of cussing in front of another Cowboy's girlfriend. While fending off his girlfriend who he was fighting with! True story.
    Cowboy Bars are a whole different varmit.

    Hit the nail right on the head. I'll take it a step further and spill the whole story. The generation that "grew up" in the late 60s and early 70s were this country's heaviest abusers of controlled substances and the **** must have leeched their brains because we learned it from them. They spent 20 years making excuses for their behavior, then passed the habit on to us. These hippies turned into yuppies and voted in all the idiots who attack our rights. Now the next generation is twice as bad as mine. And I come from the gangbangin 90s. Remember when you guys were bitching about us? These are the consequences of your behavior. Now I know it doesn't apply to the whole of the generation, but a big enough portion of you guys were doing it that it forever changed this nation.

    Man, that's dead-on. I still have my 1962 stainless steel cap-gun action six-shooters with that little size 14 waist holster. I had cowboy boots, hat and a vest to match. We also played army with plastic helmet, M1 Carbine and 1911. Dad was always the enemy and would attack us. Scouting too! We had the standard issue Boy Scout (or Swiss Army) knife, a mess-kit with real utensils. We camped and learned to shoot pellet guns. Then there was the boys club. Run by a group of volunteer fathers, it had dodge-ball, basketball, indoor archery and an indoor range for .22 shorts. All of these things are gone. Except for my Godsons. Their dad, my best friend, who buys the kids Airsoft, slingshots, pellet guns and video games. I bought the 12-year-old a Henry Golden Boy .22 for his recent 12th birthday. They are on the dean's list every semester for good grades.

    Rachel Jeantel is still in High School. She's not the only one adverse to script hand writing, I have encountered many adults who say they hate it, can't read it or won't read or use it.
