    God bless the parents who drugged us.

    Someone from work emailed this to me the other day, and I thought others here might appreciate it.

    Different drug problem..................
    Randy and Melanie Bordelon

    The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a Methamphetamine lab had been found in a old farmhouse in the adjoining county and he asked me a rhetorical question, "Why didnít we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"
    I replied, I had a drug problem when I was young: I was drug to church on Sunday morning. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather. I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didnít put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me. I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profanity. I was drug out to pull weeds in momís garden and flower beds and cockleburs out of dadís fields. I was drug to the homes of family, friends and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to now the yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood, and if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed.
    Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, or think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin; and, if todayís children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place.

    Growing up in the 1950’s this was so true; we definitely need more drugs like this today.

    As many of these "drugs" that I did as a kid, I'm surprised I didn't overdose! Although my boys were not drugged as much as I was, thankfully they all turned out good kids and grew into good men.

    Being born in the late 70s I can relate to these drugs too, not to mention the occasional switch on the rear end as well. Sadly I do not see it going back to how it used to be.

    One of the big problems is that Dad's are no longer around to teach kids this stuff. A single mom can't do with a paddle what a Dad can do with just a look.

    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    I'm trying to remember when I found out that Ivory soap wasn't really toothpaste. And Mom didn't use Cod Liver Oil, she used Black Draught or however you spell it. All I know is that it tasted terrible.

    Being "drugged" as a child can provide the best vaccination.
