This is so ironic. Last weekend was at a hamburger party and nephew had new girlfriend to show off.
The pudgey little pig had more tatoos than a circus lady with many depicting caskets and vampires. When asked if this was some Goth thing, she said “Oh no, we are into vampires and have caskets at home”.
When I was growing up the old folks were deadon right saying “idle minds are the devil’s workshop”.
A growing share of America is not worth saving.
Tattoos have become de rigeur with my generation. I have 4, but they’re all concealed or concealable with a long-sleeved shirt. I have no skulls, reapers, naked women on my body. I have patriotic ink, I have Christian ink, I have some Latin scrawled on my arms. Momma didn’t raise a fool.
But to get inked because you feel like imitating the life of vamps is laughable and sad. In 15 - 20 years when they’ve got kids in their teens, they’re going to have to explain why there are skulls and caskets on their bodies.
Kids today, along with the parents raising them, are oblivious to the idea of consequences following actions. It’s all about immediate gratification anymore.
Man, people are so screwed up today, our youth is so screwed up I don’t want to be alive 30 or 40 years from now, and thank goodness I wont be ...
