1. Should be run in every newspaper and newssite in the flipping world for a month straight.

on edit: well - in the countries where "Leave it to Beaver" has any historical context at all.

5. Do you think that Ward ever discussed with June.....

the relative merits of a falafel?

I find Billo repulsive. On so many levels.

12. The insane thing about that whole era was that those "shows" were being written

by people who were probably well into their 40's & 50's, so that would have put THEIR nostalgia years that they drew on for inspiration, sometime in the late 30's & 40's.

The situations & atmosphere they set were passe long before any of those "shows" hit the airwaves.

TV was new, so of course people watched them, but the "youngsters" of the era...the REAL ones, were the first generation who would actively buck the system, and really rebel against authority...parental or otherwise.

Ironically, those "shows" may have been a catalyst and inspiration for the people who were teens/adolescents and were watching them with disdain and anticipation for what they would do when they were old enough..

27. That is so true!

Watching these shows way back then, was like a peek into an idyllic past (at least it seemed to me, a preteen at the time) where the mothers were all so nice and nobody ever argued.

I recall wishing June Lockhart (the mom on Lassie) was my mother.

But a few years later I was wildly rebellious against that entire mode of existence.

13. Another fun factoid: should we raise taxes on incomes over $250K?

In 1955 there were 24 tax brackets, 16 of which affected incomes over the equivalent of $250K once you adjust for inflation.

Those were the same tax laws as for 1960, but inflation may have shifted a bracket or two, so that 14-15 affected incomes above that level. (Don't have the numbers in front of me on Thanksgiving Day).

So why is it suddenly radical leftism/socialist/Marxism to do that in 2012?

14. It's not. That's the point. The rich blowhards are framing the argument that way.

Most people are too young (to remember tax structures "back then") and preoccupied with life's daily struggles to actually realize that they are being fed straight out lies.

16. We forget that stay at home mothers

were frequently alcoholics and tranquilizers were a running joke. These women often didn't have a drivers license and families had one car.

They were bored to death.

The good old days, eh?

28. Or seriously depressed.......

but couldn't afford tranquilizers. They had little access to birth control and often had a passel of kids who were mostly just an afterthought in their daily lives because they were too busy trying to hold it all together and not end up in the looney bin. And the father wasn't sitting down to dinner with a suit and tie and asking each child how their day went. He was shoveling his food in and doling out backhanders to the kids sitting closest to him if they even so much as made a peep.

Yeah, I speak from experience

17. Back when you bought a new tv and went to school with the store owners kid.

No one resented that the kid had a pool and his dad always drove a new car. All that money stayed right in the community. That way of life really didn't have to change.

18. We'll probably never have another Republican

who would even agree to return taxes to half the rate it was in 1960. Eisenhower was fine with taxing the rich, but nowadays all of a sudden it's some radical far-leftism to even ask for a return to the Clinton-era rates.
This is one sick country.

19. yep. Trenchant.

I'm so tired of the disinformation. So sad about the idiots that believe it. So enraged at the corporate elites managing the whole circus.

(Corporate elites--not to be confused with intellectual "elites", or in other words, educated people who are also capable of logical thinking and critical judgment.)
