Vanity: Remember when we had real FREEDOM?

Posted on 07/04/2014 2:44:06 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

On this 4th of July.. what are some things we used to be able to do.. that we cannot anymore?

I'll start!

Making fun of each other and making fun of things that were... unnatural..

This country used to make FUN of homosexuals.

Now you could get in trouble for 'hate speech' and lose your career, job or family.

Anybody remember The Ambiguously Gay Duo???

What would happen if somebody made a cartoon like that today?????????????????????

Ambiguously Gay Duo Episode.

I remember a day when ya didn’t need a hazmat team of change a light bulb

And a day when the pollution on our shores was from us..

A day when a comic book was cheap.

I remember Fresh baked buns

And poppyseed kolachis..

And try to forget the lutefisk

Although.. We’ll soon sample Chinese air this fall..

We’ll see!

Ask Harry Reid about odors,he can smell a good real estate deal a hundred miles away, or so I hear.

When people said "its a free country" and meant it.

When you didn't have to stop before every random act and think, "wait, this isn't illegal is it?"

Don’t celebrate laughing at homosexuals. It was the first step towards acceptance of the lifestyle. Once it was an invisible subculture at best and unmentionable abomination at worst. Laughing at homosexuals with Will and Grace, Ambiguously Gay Duo, Brokeback Mountain jokes, and countless other goofy homosexual caricatures paved the way to same sex marriage in this country. Humor more than anything else is how we ended up in a place where homosexual unions are about to be nationalized, and opposing this is a firable offense.

I remember a local teacher who had been awarded the M.O.H. for his actions on Iwo Jima. He would bring his Johnson rifle and some of his kit to school and tell his story once a year. Imagine that happening now.

It’s not that long ago that the lezzies used to call THEMSELVES names that are suddenly verboten. Remember when ElRushbo used to play a tape of a group of them screaming defiance toward straights screeching out, “We’re here; we’re queer; and we’re in your face!”

When on vacation ,as kids, my brother and I roamed all over the back seat wrestling, sticking our bare feet in the back windshield, and in general acting silly. Not strapped in seats for hundreds of miles. Boys ran around the neighborhood shooting toy guns, and everyone thought it was normal. In restaurants adults lit up a cigarette after a good meal. A boy could pester and tease a girl he liked without being accused of sexual harassment.

If you aren't at least 70 years old, you don't even have a clue as to what it is to experience "Freedom".

You could walk into a school, courthouse, airport, even the boarding areas, without showing IDs, passing through metal detectors, patted down, and variously search like we are criminal suspects.

I don’t buy it.

We have “real” freedom now..just as we have always had.

The difference is “now” there are a bunch of folks telling us we don’t..and unfortunately far to many,and sadly more than most on the right, believe this BS.

If a political leader, a inept government, or some talk show host can convince you that don’t have real freedom and you live in this great country, then, IMHO, you are unclear on the concept...
