  1. The United States, since Vietnam, has had many conflicts and wars since that war in Southeast Asia, haven't seen you around Mr. Obst's and the rest of the Vietnam War protesters, not since you were protesting the threat to your own safety and comfort during the Vietnam War and nothing more.

  2. "You could be anything, smoke anything, drink anything, bang anything, and tell grown ups what you were doing was right." This guy has no tact or class. Using the term 'bang' in an interview like this is very unprofessional.

  3. The hippies got it. Jimmy Carter said the US has been at peace for only 16 of its 242 years as a nation. Counting wars, military attacks and military occupations, there have actually only been five years of peace in US history

    "We have wasted, I think, $3 trillion," Carter said, referring to American military spending. "China has not wasted a single penny on war, and that's why they're ahead of us. In almost every way.

    "And I think the difference is if you take $3 trillion and put it in American infrastructure, you'd probably have $2 trillion left over. We'd have high-speed railroad. We'd have bridges that aren't collapsing. We'd have roads that are maintained properly. Our education system would be as good as that of, say, South Korea or Hong Kong.

  4. The downfall of morality went downhill during the start of the 60s. No wonder why baby boomers are so entitled and put our country in major debt, from home mortgages to credit card loans.

  5. This last election proved one thing when it comes to power nothing is off the table. Whether you're a bully or snowflake both are being used to get elected. Today, Little children are being bullied into suicide has to be the most damnable act the human race could do in consciousness with God, we are still here rapture did not come. Here's the problem, Donald Trump got elected and many people would say, including Fox news, it has happened get over it. They are right commonsense says so, what are we to do now we cannot change the past. Now we have to live with bullying and the Usery of pity to get ahead (to sow our seed). Now we have to eat with it, sleep with it, and marry into it. Both these Usery's blows my mind in the way it showed up to this world. Think of it, these Usery's showed up because evil was able to torture the word of God (self-esteem) in the mind of virgins (the little children) so they would kill themselves by their own hands (suicide). I'm not a religious man but this pretty much flushes the Bible down the toilet. Avarice (extreme greed) was probably behind this showing up. The only answer I can come up with is a song (I love the way you hate me). If logic still works, this new spirit is what man has to look forward to in times to follow. I would say what a pity if pity still meant something. I still can't believe it, this world told it's God to go jump off a short pier… Jesus Christ is this funny or what?
