ladybarbara December 11, 2019 There was a time when people could joke with each other and it was returned with a back and forth volley. There was a time when comedians did not have to guard what they said, when Don Rickles type jeering was taken with laughter. No one was butt hurt by being called a hockey puck, or that your mama wears combat boots. An endearing ruffle of the hair and “knuckle head” was taken in good spirit. Saturday Night Live used to be funny in the good ol’days. Having thick skin was a saving grace. Gone are the days when people respected the law, the office of the President, the Police, the Military, and the life of new born babies, or even babies in the womb. Gone are the days when colleges allowed free thinking, where a conservative was not shouted into shutting the fuck up. There was a time when Communism was seen for the destructive and damaging standard of government and it was known that Socialism will not work for the people, and results in poverty for the total population, while a few top leaders live in wealth. There was a time when thinking was balanced. It is sad to think that those days are gone. Now, it seems that right is wrong and patriotism is wrong. Being proud is wrong and everyone sees anyone who thinks differently as the enemy. The flag of our country is torn down and burnt, stomping it underfoot, while the flag of another country is raised. God is being omitted. Freedom of religion is being ridiculed and everything once dear is being replaced by hate and death. Everywhere there is violence all around. Comedy is dead. Kidding is dead. There is no joking anymore and laughter is dead because laughing has to be laughing at something — and it is lo longer allowed. Politically correct prevails and humor is dead. It is a sad situation.
