Default It's getting LAME in here!

C'mon guys, not long ago we were ready to jump through the screen Chuck Norris style! What happened, I even tried an inflamitory post, only to be quickly shot down by the truth...I was hoping to get some interesting conversations going...

So what's the argument of the day? Borders, Drug Decriminalization, Foriegn Policy...what stokes your fire?

running on the school playground not being allowed any more...
also tag is no longer deemed safe play..
they are also getting rid of slides, monkey bars, etc..

supposedly all those things are too unsafe for our kids these days....

Don't say that too loud, they'll ban that too.

I mean come on, did any of you wear a bicycle helmet when you were a kid? I'm 43 and still alive. We fell out of trees jumped our bikes off of huge jumps and are still here to tell about it. Of course, my two children are a bit slow because they didn't make us wear protective cups, and warn us of the center bar on boys bikes. Lol, I'm kidding.

It's getting absolutely ridiculous. They even put warnings on irons. Isn't that what they're supposed to do? Get hot?

Geez!

Lol. You mean Lawn Jarts? Yes! I just dug out my vintage set. It's going up north with me this weekend. We never managed to plant one into the head of one of the brothers. We, of course didn't stand at the other end when someone was throwing them. DUH!!!!

Seriously though, I'm pretty sure they banned teaching dodgeball in my school district for gym class because it "causes" aggressive behavior or something.

Our country is going down the toilet... fast.

the really sad part about all this is that you can't actually blame the schools or the teachers.. blame it on the parents that filed lawsuits because their kids got a scratch at school, or the parents that think that the ps2 = babysitter... my opinion anyway..... generations apart I guess.... and I'm not that old....
