7. homogenization of America....
there used to be neighborhoods...could tell the difference between Ohio and Missouri and California...now it's all one long freeway/strip mall w/ big box Wal-Marts. etc...you can be anywhere in the US and eat @ TGIF\Applebees\Lone Star, etc. etc.....boring...

Cable\Satellite TV...so many choices...so much crap

How our generation overwhelmed others in terms of culture\dress...girls today wearing what they did when I was in HS...my kids listening to the same music I did.....not fair...they should have their own - it's their duty to irritate me...

What a shock...the middle east is still a mess...same rhetoric....same blood...same insanity....

You mean the whole world didn't turn Commie because we got out of Viet Nam? but, but,...we were the worlds last hope to stop the evil scourge there...

Oh...we managed to lead normal lives and actually extend Civil rights to more of our citizenry back then, despite facing the huge war machines and nuclear ICBM's of the USSR & China.....but now that some ragheads got some boxcutters, we must be very, very scared and imprison ourselves in our own fear so that we can be safe...
