Kids Today

Toys 'R' Us to recall 27,000 coloring cases

Reuters - 1 hour, 9 minutes ago

See, I think that's the problem with kids today. It isn't the nanny state do-gooders or the sissy parents or over regulated schools making kids turn soft.
See, back in my day, we had leaded paint, saccharine, mothers smoking and drinking while pregnant, tap water, you get the picture.
These days, kids aren't getting enough chemicals and minerals like nicotine, alcohol, chlorine, fluoride and lead in their diets. They're turning into a bunch of losers and pussies. They need these things to toughen them up a bit.

The world is starting to move too fast for me these days.
A couple of months ago they were talking on TV about installing water tanks in our back yards to collect rainwater off the roof for use in the garden.
This month, I think they have overstepped the mark. The suggestion was to grow vegetables in our backyard for our own use.
I mean, do they really think this would catch on.
