Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Damn, if I thought that were true, I'd be volunteering for his campaign!
Haha when I heard that, I thought to myself "Hmmm...seems that the 1950s was a good thing...the libs all keep talking about how taxes were higher and there was a stronger middle class, Guess my vote is with Romney."Man I have never seen such an implosion with the Left. One minute they are clamouring for the 50s with its strong middle-class and high tax rates...the next they are arguing against it. Schizophrenia of the Left...mmm mmm mmm I'm loving it!- Jay
Now if only someone could take us back to the 1850's when the Constitution actually mattered and states had rights...
Damn, but I miss Donna Reed!
Romney, the faux conservative who wants to attack Iran, who is pro-abortion, anti-gun ownership and had his own version of "Obamacare" also known as "ROMNEYCARE". What's not to love about this fraud of a candidate?
On a related note, and requiring just a bit of background: Another Manosphere blogger recently(-ish) posted an old Folger's commercial. It starts with the husband telling the wife something like, "How can a pretty girl like you make such a lousy cup of coffee?" Distraught, she goes next door to her grandmotherly neighbor (looks vaguely German or Swedish) to learn how she does it. The young wife later comes back and hands the husband a coffee cup while he's getting ready, with a flirtatious, "Your coffee, sir..." It was supposed to be an example of what men really want at home, but can't get because that's considered sexist. As a woman and a new wife myself, what I get out of that is not outrage over sexism, but sadness that so many of us have lost the type of assistance that the young wife takes for granted. I would GLADLY trade our fancy Keurig and a disparaging remark from my husband for regular infusions of generational wisdom from that grandmotherly neighbor. Another example of good things lost to time... *sigh*
A world without the nanny state. If only it could happen.
I miss the golden Age of Pan-Am....
I miss Pan-Am and the golden age of air travel...
@Jane,Hahaha, those are great aren't they. That "grandmotherly neighbor" was the Mrs. Olsen character who proclaimed Folgers as using beans that are "mountain grown - it's the richest kind" for many years.Here's the one your were referring to:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGh7LAkNOC8The following one is my favorite; no Mrs. Olsen but this time "Papa Eddie". Hubby is outside and throws the coffee into the garden. Wife says "Honey, you'll kill the petunias!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRYfouuHPvsSeriously though, these commercials were intended to be funny and play on the natural desire of wives to want to please their husbands. At least, 1960's wives wanted to please their husbands.
oDisgusting. The eldest son belongs in the front seat; what's the wife doing there?
