I would like to live it up a little. Ya know, use the vertical peddle on the right. But when I try to, I found myself 2 mouth's deeper in the hole. The tracks is a med da fore.

Florez's anecdote is a model of uncaring. If his point is that the moral climate of today if superior to the past, he is sadly off target.

The moral climate of today is abominable. Unlike Florez's father, the young people of today have no work ethic. Indeed, they feel entitled to have everything handed to them, with no effort of their own.

I addition , the younger generation treats sex and drug use as purely recreational activities with no long term consequences. This is not what America should be about.

Thomas F. Meagher once said that"sunlight is the best disinfectant." That is a principle that Florez's father would have agreed with.

Reminds me of Monty Python: "We used to wake up a half hour before we went to bed, eat a handful of cold poison,pay to go to work 36 hours a day, and when we got home, our dad would kill us and dance about on our graves. Ya tell the young people that today, and they won't believe ya."
