The Promiscuous Lollipop Society
Whose motto is none other than Satan’s: “I will not serve!”
Where are we going and why?
And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns: and upon his horns, ten diadems: and upon his heads, names of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like to a leopard: and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength and great power. And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death’s wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast. And they adored the dragon which gave power to the beast.
And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns, like a lamb: and he spoke as a dragon. And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight. And he caused the earth and them that dwell therein to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth, in the sight of men.
And he shall make all, little and great, and rich, and poor, and freemen, and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man may buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred and sixty-six. (Apoc.13:1-4;11-13; 16-18)
Since the 1960s, these words from the book of Saint John’s revelations are coming to pass. The age of technology ushered mankind into the cosmos, igniting man’s quest for knowledge and power using the ideology of communism: God does not exist, only the power of man. So, the wheel of challenge to God and His orderliness came into being. The oldest established order in the world, the Catholic Church, had to be changed so that, instead of a true reform, which would still maintain the Church as the light of the world, (as it had been for twenty centuries), the Church now joined the world. It was seduced by the impulse of the beast, just as Eve had been at the beginning of time. The Second Vatican Council, a pastoral council, came into existence. It was originally convoked to bring a breath of renewed faith into the Church, but instead it “threw out the baby with the bathwater.” A new age of dialogue came into the world. The old truths of faith became the target of dialogue, just as the serpent had dialogued with Eve, using his cunning super-intelligence to deceive her. And just as he had dialogued with God for the victory over Job.
With the great revolution taking hold of the Seven Hills, the Eternal City, in 1963, the same challenge began with man’s quest to the stars. The launch of the moon expedition revolutionised man’s capacity to control his destiny through technological expansion, through satellites, spy cameras, TV, cable TV, the power of the media, radio, machinery, recordings, the telephone, the internet and such. In fact, the tool of the media on all levels is the very tool that is spoken of in Saint John’s Book of Revelation. Satan gave the beast his power, namely, the means for mankind to be controlled, persuaded, intimidated, influenced and judged.
God’s gift to man has been used by Satan and man to corrupt man and to take him away from the worship of God. Thus he has become a slave of sin and no longer enjoys the true freedom God intended.
Genesis is repeated. God gave man the earth and life. All that man had to do was to serve God in love. But Satan came and said, “You are gods. You do not need God. Everything, even more than you have will be yours.”
Thou shalt not worship any other gods. In the 1950s, after the ravages of war, God was loved again and there was a great revival of faith. This was like unto childbirth – the joy being the result of so much suffering in labour.
But Satan, who hates God, decided he could not see this renewed love for God, so he began his ultimate plan by using technology to tempt man away from the belief in God to the belief in himself. And God said to Adam and Eve, “I give you everything, but this tree you are not to touch. If you do you will die.”
The biggest instrument was the television. Through the mass media outlet, the whole world could be dictated to and influenced. Everyone would believe what he saw on TV. TV brought the world into your living room. Your privacy was totally invaded. As the years progressed into the 21st century, every movement you made was monitored. The law of total control by the powers that be came into effect. One only needs to look at the western world.
The evil one set in motion the promised new values through nakedness: the sin of Adam and Eve. He made it acceptable in movies, destroying the protection of modesty and purity. He made it acceptable in Church where ladies’ dresses and head coverings were thrown out and replaced with trousers, shorts and low-cut necklines, front and back. As the years progressed, this went further. Women now wear mini-skirts, see-through blouses and dresses in God’s House. The world entered the Church.
The movies began to show that undressing was acceptable. They showed nudity in swimming and on the beaches. Man became desensitised to sin. This continued to progress in schools, destroying marital and family values. Satan had designed a new world of consciousness, an acceptable way of life. In other words, the ten commandments were of no use now because God is out there and we are free to choose. So, abortions and euthanasia came into being. Crime increased one thousand fold.
Sport became the god of the people, together with leisure and pleasure, clubs of gambling, poker machines, drinking, and finally, drugs, which flooded the country. But let us look at the temptations placed in sport, and even innocent ones. Belly nakedness abounded in plays, modern art, magazines, posters, advertisements, TV advertisements. All glorified the body as its own god. Then there were the beauty contests: Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss “This” and Miss “That.” Then came the heavy rock – the bands – the promiscuity.
It was the accepted norm that you could have “one night stands,” that you could have sex before marriage, in fact, that you could have as much sex as you liked.
What are the consequences? Broken marriages and so much sorrow, the bikini, the dancing girls at sport venues, the nakedness in movies – even in “G” or “PG” rated movies – and in magazines visible for young people to see and read.
Then there is school promiscuity where sex is not only acceptable, but it is a “no-no” for those in authority to interfere with their pupils’ “rights.” Yet all are vulnerable to the temptation of the naked body.
Nakedness is evident on the beaches and in all sport, not necessarily total nakedness, but clothing that leaves little room for the imagination.
And now we have the Mardi Gras. Lesbian and gay couples are accepted as being normal. We do not judge these souls because there are reasons why these souls have chosen these paths, but it does not make it right. Then we have gay marriages which abuse the establishment of marriage instituted by God in Genesis, and by the Church in the Gospel. I will not go into the consequences of all of these actions, but mankind is now suffering the penalty for their actions.
So, how has this affected natural justice? God made women for procreation, primarily – He never stated when it was to take place – but that woman was to be equal to man.
I call it the “Lollipop Law.” God said, “No nakedness.” God said, “No promiscuity.” God said, “No adultery.” God said, “Thou shalt not kill.” There was no such thing as when one is old enough to make decisions, but God did give us a clue with the marriage of Mary to Saint Joseph, a man age 33 years. What does that say to a world which labels men who marry women a great deal younger than them.
So what is the “Lollipop Theory” in today’s society? We see a child offered a lollipop. The child accepts the lollipop, then gets punished for eating it. That is how Satan has convinced society, especially the Western society, that it is okay to be naked, to have sex whenever, however, and with whomever you like. It’s called “being enlightened” and is characteristic of a society supposedly “well up in advanced learning,” of a society which is “there to protect the people.”
Satan offered the lollipop, then made laws to punish the very people who took the lollipop, disguising it with a moral sanctimony, punishing people and placing them in a prison cell for eating that lollipop. This was well-planned by the evil one to place as many people as possible in jail, especially those in power and authority. Satan used Nero, the Emperor of Rome, and other powerful men, to put Christians into prison for being part of a sect in days gone by. It was called Christianity.
Satan has done the same thing by using music and drugs to “dope” the youth out of existence. Now sexual frenzy has become an appetite and the young are an easy target. Smoking and drugs were acceptable at first. Then came the law that smoking is dangerous to health. Now the powers that be even sue tobacco companies, blaming them for the bad habit when, in fact, these were the same people who brought it into being, just like the lollipops.
Drugs and “pot” came together with music which was an acceptable entertainment avenue, to such an extent that everyone was drugged out and ended up in jail. The young became lawless men and women who have no future and are “hooked.” The drugs and “pot” bring forth promiscuity with parties etc.
Now they have legalised prostitution, as if it were a business – taxing brothels as businesses – giving the lollipop, and then place people in prison for misusing their bodies if they don’t pay up. Prostitution is a sin not a crime – but forced prostitution is a grave crime and an abuse of the highest order – like every other type of abuse.
Then you have the idiocy of drinking. The Australian male is not a man unless he is holding a beer in his hand, with sport and all. Then the powers that hold out the lollipop by placing laws into place which punish those that drink. Yet drunkenness is promoted by the great advertisers and this leads to broken marriages, violence, even death through illness.
Then there is the matter of gambling – the offer of clubs’ and pubs’ poker machines. The government taxes them and men are tempted by them, draining much of their wages, causing broken homes and gambling addictions. The Lollipop Syndrome.
Then we come to the matter of outlawing of guns, of weapons. One hundred and fifty years ago, when crime was 1000% less, every Australian was free to have a weapon for self-defence, for games and for sport. It was the powers that be who orchestrated new laws to stop people from protecting themselves, thus denying them their God-given rights. The powers that be want a police state to control everyone’s moves. The media today, have become the police detectives, the watchdog, by using high rating current affairs programs to set people up.
The matter of removing weapons was easily done. Have a crazy man shoot a group of people and then make a statement to the public that people need no weapons. Yet people had weapons training in past years and crime did not prevail as today when many jail sentences are given to remove those who oppose.
These are all ploys to control the public – a no resistance policy.
Now, mankind is plagued with so many laws: you can go to jail for nearly anything.
So, do you truly believe you are free? Now comes the final plan: the credit card, the debit card and the camera that watches everything you do; the satellite that can zoom in on you at any time. Just think about who controls you. God gave us the freedom to choose, but that does not mean the freedom to choose what is wrong at any cost.
Your credit card gives the beast total control of your life, your spending and your whereabouts are known at all times. The all-revolving eyes watch your every move. So now, what does it say about the beast of the apocalypse, “And he shall make all… to have a character in their right hand, or in their foreheads.” (Apoc. 13:16) This is none other than the barcode – “666” – 18 digits. (See NBC Prediction – YouTube – RFID under skin by 2017).
There are many more matters that can be raised, especially the laws that govern the justice system. There needs to be a radical change in the whole system. You can make a difference to change these laws which crush the true freedom of man. You can make a difference. Let us turn back the clock and return security to our world.
Turn first away from sin, and turn to God, because society has become atheistic and adulterous and worships other gods.
Let us look at the hypocrisy of our society – I called it the “Lollipop Syndrome” because of our unjust Laws, Society values and the double standard Justice System:
You have the more famous people – film stars – romping around in unsavoury situations with three or four marriages behind them, giving bad example to the youth, yet they are heralded as paragons of our society!
There is the so-called “Puritan” Society who claim that it is gravely immoral and dangerous to our children when an older man is involved with a younger woman. Since when has age anything to do with true love? The Film Stars do it, so it is okay.
Then you see advertising under the guise of PG, a movie on SBS called “……………..” And what do we see, but a young 16 year old girl having sex with a different man, twice – every night, and it is explicit – and he is three times her age. Where are the values?
You have advertisements during the day with a man having erection problems and told to phone such and such, and then you see three men seemingly playing the piano with their private parts.
There is an add for a Lancer where mum and dad are in the family car kissing passionately, ready for a sexual connection in front of their three very young children.
There is a Nissan ad — where the woman explains how big it is and is having an orgasm as she drives over humps.
What about the nakedness on the beaches, swimming pools, magazines, in the Mardi Gras in front of the young, and all is acclaimed as wholesome expression of the young.
You have the television programmes like “Rage” where you see all types of sexual expressions of nakedness – and this does not incite males in any form? This represents a Christian Society. What about our youth?
Look at what is shown in the cinemas – the foul language and vulgarity of every description, and this is accepted as the norm.
So what is the “Lollipop Syndrome”? It is where society upholds the Law and the Justice System on one hand – and on the other these very people are the cause and promoters of the very explicit and corruptive element of expression, which is destroying the morality of our children and country.
Another way of putting it: you offer the Society and child a lollipop, and then punish him when he accepts it and proceeds to eat it – calling him a criminal.
Liquor is produced and distributed all over the world to pubs, clubs, football & sport venues, beaches, parties – then when some people succumb and drink too much they get themselves into trouble and are locked up. Yet, they are encouraged to drink in the first place!
Since 1940 we have been offered tobacco and cigarettes, and the Media is used to promote it, encouraging the young to smoke, while the Government taxes us all. Then forty years down the track the same people who promoted it are now saying it is detrimental to health, and sue the companies that supply the product.
There are many more examples, but I assure of this, the Media are the politicians and they play the fiddle while society is being destroyed.
One thing is certain, dear public, the Media must be stopped from controlling our lives, for no person has a chance for true justice when the Court protects an alleged ‘victim’, but does not protect a person who is charged from being exposed, even before he has gone to trial. What if this person is innocent? – his life is ruined, community disturbed and businesses destroyed. Who will pay the price for all this? The so-called ‘victim’ gets away scot-free. (And many times it has been revealed down the track that it was the ‘victim’ who had lied).
The Lollipop World of Double Standards – In the Realm of Justice – 26th May 2006
The Lollipop World of Double Standards – I wrote most of this on the 26th May 2006, but now have added much more to show the grave injustices perpetuated by man, especially the Media. The Media say that people like me, who claim to have visions, are brainwashed, or weak individuals who are easily lead. Yet the greatest brainwashers are the powerful Media who are preparing mankind for the total domination of the influence of the Antichrist and his puppets.
All that is happening in the world is stage set, so that bad laws can be introduced as mankind are constantly watched where our human dignity is violated and true freedom of speech is curtailed; your privacy is invaded and false representation is accepted as truth and having a lawsuit if defamation against them cannot be challenged by the average person, because no man has the money to pursue it. Even if they did it would take many years to achieve – and in the meantime your funds are depleted and your reputation destroyed. Should you win such a defamation case you can never retrieve your reputation or loss. This can only change once the law is changed to criminalize false reporting.
Dear Members of the public: friends and foes – especially the Media who are the cause of many innocent people going to prison. There are double standards in our society and in the Justice System, as portrayed by the power of the Media who can make you believe anything they wish – it depends on the “flavour” of the month.
Has anyone ever asked: “Who are the Media, and what credentials do they have when they report on a particular subject?” Have the Media become the Police – enforcers of the Law – the spy network of investigation? Look at the Current Affairs Programmes for example. They use secretive cameras, harass people, make interviews under false pretences and make false accusations – yet the public seemingly holds them up as the Law enforces, Judge and Jury.
The Media influences public opinion and politicians – even to the point of making the public believe they need this or that protection. The Media acclaim some people, and downgrade others and even incite riots, which should never occur, and the public are easily swayed to any type of thinking they put forward. So who rules – the Government or the Media – The Courts or the Media? Think about it!
They say they are there to expose crime and reveal what they think the public need to know, and at times they speak the truth. They have constant polls on television about what the public thinks and says, but shouldn’t it depend on “facts” not “polls”?
Who then incites law and disorder in Australia and the Western World? So why are so many people in prison throughout the world? Because of double standards. You have one law for this country, where you would go to prison in Australia – if you travelled to another country, you do not. This is ludicrous.
In Australia we have the Cotton Ball Society – there are laws for everything. The Australia people, as in the West, have no say, because so many laws are written that mankind have no free will and all is said to protect them, but I can assure you this is not so. As soon as some event happens, like a terrorist attack etc. People are alarmed and immediately a call is out by Media that we need new laws – we need to give the Police more power. This happens over and over again. It has nothing to do with protecting the people, because Australia has one of the best Police Forces in the world, and they are very well organised. Australia has more laws, regulations and governing bodies per population than most countries in the world. The same happened when there was a gun attack in Port Arthur, Tasmania – gun laws were more restrictive. The same is being done in the U.S.A. – this is pushed by the Media. “These laws are passed, not for the protection of the public, but to control the public and stop any sense of protecting oneself – like the Fifth Amendment in the U.S.A.
In recent months the Australian Government has been lobbying the Indonesian Government to “stay the execution” of two Australian criminals held in a Bali Prison for the crime of smuggling drugs into their country.
It is true to say there is a grave offence committed by any Nation who executes a human being, regardless of the seriousness of the crime. However, is a life sentence any better? The sentence given in this case does not fit the crime – that is certain! Nevertheless, there are countless injustices handed down by the Courts in every country through unjust laws that govern them.
The Australian Government has turned every conceivable stone upside down to beg the Indonesian Government to “stay” the decision! Yet Australia has hundreds of inmates in Prison cells who are not guilty of their crimes – yet Australia does nothing to lobby to have a New Review Commission established – like they have in England and the United States.
From the writings of the well known Judge, Dr. Bob Moles, Professor of Law in the University of Adelaide, and Senior Lecturer, Bibi Sangha, Law School Flinders University, of South Australia – it reads:
It is estimated between 5 and10 percent of inmates currently incarcerated for crimes they did not commit – meaning between 1,465 to 2,930 innocent men and women – are currently imprisoned, with no possibility of justice for them or their families, based upon Australian Bureau of Statistics of the 30th June 2009 Cat (4517-0) prisoners in Australia.
This simply is because of our Jury System and our flawed Legal System of the Appeal Process.
Then we have the “Plea Bargain” offered by The Prosecution to plead guilty to a crime that a person did not commit, with the threat of a long sentence and trial if you did not – and maintained your innocent plea. In other words, a person charged who may be innocent is forced to plead guilty to a crime they have not committed! Now add this to the Statistics given (cat 4517-0). In my book this in itself is a criminal offence by the Authorities Perverting The Cause of Justice!
Australia needs a Review Commission, as The Australian State Governments only have The Court of Criminal Appeal, and with great difficulty, The High Court Of Australia. If this fails a person has The Review Act 2001′ where the Attorney General’s Office, appoints a Judge to review the case – or a person can Appeal to the Attorney General for clemency.
The Review, if successful, will return the case back to the Court of Criminal Appeal, but this can only happen with new compelling evidence. As for “Clemency” – this does not clear an innocent person of his crime.
The Review Commission is an independent body with power to refer a case back to the Court of Criminal Appeal, without political interference. It is independent of Government and the Judiciary; the Board would have qualified professionals including Police Officers.
You can read Dr. Bob Moles’ writings from: “A State of Injustice”, or read the works of Justice Michael Kirby, retired Judge, who supports and recommends that every State Government should establish this Commission. Read “Forensic Investigations and Miscarriage of Justice”.
To review a conviction through the current “defunct system” is inadequate. It is beyond human understanding how the State and Federal Governments rally to support a “stay of execution” but cannot lift a finger to assist the suffering prisoners on death row of a character assassination – spending tens of thousands of dollars in diplomatic jargon, but not a dollar to lend a hand to the defenceless prisoners in Australia. We make no judgement upon the unfortunate inmates on death row – we simply pray for them, and ask that they are given a fair go.
The Lollipop Syndrome in Australia applies also to our Justice System, which is outmoded. They are not in line with a more just system that is operating in Europe, compared to the Westminster System and the American System – and this can be proven by the fact of how many prisoners there are in various counties.
Australia cries out via Media, decrying the shameful execution of inmates in various countries, and rightly so, but do nothing in rescuing prisoners in Australia, who are innocent of their crimes – where the Australian Government can form a new Review Commission – established in England and the United States, which has overturned hundreds of convictions, yet do you hear the Media lobby for this? No!
The official Statistics on crime states in Australia alone between 5 – 10% in prison are innocent. Who will help them and their families?
You have a Jury System who judge the life of a person typed by Media. People are called to Jury duties off the street – yet you have Judges and Lawyers – the experts – sitting back while people off the street make judgement upon a person, but influenced by Media. It is like a surgeon who leaves the diagnosis and surgery to the public.
So let us look at the current prison population per country, from World Statistics:
Men of the Western World have abused this power by placing heavy burdens upon men due to their sexuality – yet they have compromised their values, displaying double standards in their promiscuous lives through the Media, dress code, films code, magazines and Law, upholding one part of the law but making laws that reduce man to mere beasts.
It is interesting to see that the Christian world of closer to two billion people flaunt their sexuality with nudity, explicit sexual acts on television, movies with immodest dress, displays in pageants, the Miss Universe and other such competitions, immodesty in sport and on the beaches – yet place millions of people in prison.
Then you have the Muslim or Islamic world of nearly 1.5 billion people who actually live the Biblical Laws, being modest in dress. They do not have men in prison for various acts unless serious abuse has been violated and then it should be so.
You have the Hindu Nations and those who honour Buddhism with a population of 1.5 billion people – they have no problems of promiscuity like the Western World – they are modestly dressed.
The Universal Laws musts change according to what God has revealed through all faiths, and reduce the populace in prisons. I will give you an idea of how bad this is e.g.: The following show how many people are in prisons over the world per 100,000 people. Let us make it clearer to press the point:
When you take into account some of these countries and the prison population per 100,000 people ratio; notably those who have a high prison ratio are of Christianity and the Western world – e.g.
Australia – Western English population of 22 million – has 133 people in prison per 100,000 people: 29,700 inmates.
New Zealand – Western English population 4.5 million: 211 inmates per 100,000.
Let s look at Brazil, South America, with a population of 200 million – Christian: only 255 per 100,000 people are in prison. It is far less per population than Australia and New Zealand who have only 25% of Brazil’s population.
The United States of America: a Christian Nation which has the highest prison population in the world – 800 people in prison per 100,000 and their population is 333 million.
China with a population of 1.38 billion – Buddhism and other – 119 inmates per 100,000 people.
Indonesia: Muslim population of 237 million – 61 inmates per 100,000.
Japan: population of 135 million – Buddhism – 59 inmates per 100.000.
Because of this deplorable state of this country, Australia I desire to form a new political party to reverse the trend. It is to be called:
THE REPUBLIC, REFORM AND JUSTICE PARTY
- To reform Law and the Justice System;
- To remove incarceration, with the majority of prisoners, and replacing it with rehabilitation.
- Bring in the New Review Commission for the wrongly accused;
- Replace the archaic Jury system to what is used in Europe – an Investigative Legal System – which is a pre-trial filter.
- “Judge only” Trial;
- Have our own Bill of Rights;
- One Law for all States;
- Criminalise false Media Reporting.
These are but just a few ideas I wish the public of Australia to digest. From someone who has experienced a long incarceration
The Promiscuous Society and Control of the Masses through Public Opinion and the Media who have become the Judge, Jury and Law Inquisition, no different from that of the Spanish Inquisition.
The world in general, especially the western world, which is Europe, U.S.A., Australia, even part of South America and part of Asia, have become a promiscuous society since the sixties, but more so in the past ten years. Laws are made, as they say, to protect the public, yet there is a total contradiction in terms.
Why, we may ask? Let us take the power of the Media; they have become the police watchdog. There may be laws, but who really governs them? Who applies them unquestionably? Society takes the Media as truth, the whole truth, so help me God. But if the public only really knew how untruthful the Media are, and how they manipulate public opinion they would be shocked. Those who experience the invasion of the Media into their lives know how they work. I myself have had twenty years’ experience of Media influences and deception.
Are the laws of Australia “over the top” and is the Justice System archaic? I believe so. The Media get away with criminal murder – they believe that when they report a subject they are immune to litigation because of freedom of speech. What is freedom of speech? Does it mean that you can say what you wish to say no matter what? So what is the Media?
AJA Code of Ethics
Respect for truth and the public’s right to information are fundamental principles of journalism. Journalists liken society to itself. They convey information, ideas and opinions, a privileged role. They inform citizens and animate democracy. They give a practical form to freedom of expression. Many journalists work in private enterprise, but all have these public responsibilities. They scrutinise power, but also exercise it, and should be accountable. Accountability engenders trust. Without trust, journalists do not fulfil their public responsibilities. MEAA members engaged in journalism commit themselves to:
Respect for the rights of others
- Report and interpret honestly, striving for accuracy, fairness and disclosure of all essential facts. Do not suppress relevant available facts, or give distorting emphasis. Do your utmost to give a fair opportunity for reply.
- Do not place unnecessary emphasis on personal characteristics, including race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation, family relationships, religious belief, or physical or intellectual disability.
- Aim to attribute information to its source. Where a source seeks anonymity, do not agree without first considering the source’s motives and any alternative attributable source. Where confidences are accepted, respect them in all circumstances.
- Do not allow personal interest, or any belief, commitment, payment, gift or benefit, to undermine your accuracy, fairness or independence.
- Disclose conflicts of interest that affect or could be seen to affect, the accuracy, fairness or independence of your journalism. Do not improperly use a journalistic position for personal gain.
- Do not allow advertising or other commercial considerations to undermine accuracy, fairness or independence.
- Do your utmost to ensure disclosure of any direct or indirect payment made for interviews, pictures, information or stories.
- Use fair, responsible and honest means to obtain material. Identify yourself and your employer before obtaining any interview for publication or broadcast. Never exploit a person’s vulnerability or ignorance of media practice.
- Present pictures and sound which are true and accurate. Any manipulation likely to mislead should be disclosed.
- Do not plagiarise.
- Respect private grief and personal privacy. Journalists have the right to resist compulsion to intrude.
- Do your utmost to achieve fair correction of errors.
Basic values often need interpretation and sometimes come into conflict. Ethical journalism requires conscientious decision-making in context. Only substantial advancement of the public interest or risk of substantial harm to people allows any standard to be overridden.

HOW OLD AM I?
How Old is Grandpa?
Stay with this – the answer is at the end. It may blow you away. One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events. The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age and just things in general.
The Grandfather replied, “Well, let me think for a minute, I was born before:
There were no:
Laser beams, or
Man had not invented:
Clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air
Space travel was only in Flash Gordon books.
Your Grandmother and I got married first and then lived together.
Every family had a father and a mother.
Before the age of 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”
There were no gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, day-care centres and grow therapy.
Our lives were governed by good judgement and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege. Living in this country was a bigger privilege.
We thought fast food was eating half a biscuit while running to catch the school bus.
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yoghurt or guys wearing earrings.
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny and the President’s Speeches on our radios.
I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.
If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk.
The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam.
Pizza Hut, McDonald’s and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 & 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar and a Pepsi, were all a nickel.
And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail one letter and two postcards.
You could buy a new ford Coupe for $600 … but who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day:
“grass” was mowed,
“coke” was a cold drink,
“pot” was something your mother cooked in and
“rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
“Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,
“chip” meant a piece of wood,
“hardware” was found in a hardware store and
software” wasn’t even a word.
“a hat” was worn outside, not in the house and never at the dinner table.
And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap.
How old to you think I am?”
I bet you have this old man in mind … you are in for a shock! Read on to see … pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
Are you ready ??????. …….
This man would be only 59 years old!!
So we would be born in the mid fifties!
GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT …
Pass this on to old ones, the young ones wouldn’t believe it.
