The good ol' days

There is this commercial that comes on down here that more or less questions why the good old days were so good. It shows footage of Depression Era scenes. Now, the advertisement is for some job seeker website and they say some crap about how the internet is better...yada, yada, yada

While that may be true, but think of this...The internet, cable TV, cell phones, etc. didn't exist back then. Music was played and performed by those that had real talent, not manufactured in a studio.

TV and movies were much better. Writers actually took the time to write and didn't just crank something out to make a buck. Reality TV wasn't anywhere near conception.

Gas was under $1, hell, it may have been under 50 cents! Times were tough, but stuff was still cheaper then. Damn inflation!!!!!

Actresses didn't have to starve themselves to have a certain "look" in order to get the best roles. Whoever started that nonsense needs to be drug out into the street and shot!

People that were famous actually earned their fame, not get it because of their family's money or who they know!

Kids actually knew what fresh air and the outside was. Nowadays it seems like it's all about the internet and video games.

I could go on for days on all the thins that were better about the past, but I'll stop there. I'm sure some of you will disagree with me and say that times are better now. Yes, we have more technology and whatnot, but can you honestly say these are the good old days? No, with each generation, times get worse. Such a shame!

Damn, i can't get over how much gas was back then. We could sure use those prices now!
