Warning a recent study found that almost 100% of people over the age of 45 that identified themselves as LIBERAL can to some degree be effected by this http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 … 112023.htm
Just letting you know - Your friend BloodRedPen
And you think this is about liberals? Nice try. I am a liberal and I have accepted the fact that the world has changed and I have no desire to go back to the 1950s. Who is suffering from Peter Pan syndrome here?
This was all posted TONGUE and CHEEK - Sorry if I offended
No you just proved that they have no sense of humor and can't take what they dish out. Proven!
And if it had been stated that All conservatives over the age of 45 are ... whatever. You would not comment on it?
Uninvited Writer: I read this inane nonsense. My reaction: ********* please! Peter Pan Syndrome, my ******! In my opinion, it is the conservatives who do not want to grow up and mature. They still believe that LGBT people should be closeted, everyone should be religious, women should be only wives and mothers, etc. Need I say more? The definition of an immature person is a person who wants everyone to be like him/her and becomes quite upset and often vitriolic when they are not! Liberals are definitely not that at all- we want inclusion for everyone, not just the selected few! It is the CONSERVATIVES who do not like others disagreeing with THEM!
Also, Liberals are more likely to be happier,zestier, and are ageless because we believe in seeing all aspects of life and society. CONSERVATIVES just rust away with age...............things tend to become atrophied with disuse and continuing to do the same thing the way it ALWAYS has been done-hmmmmmm!
I keep hearing about the 1950's and cannot possibly imagine a more harmless American environment and am wondering what the Liberal issue is with that era?
Homophobia, segregation, religious intolerance, racial inequality and persecution of leftists and suspected leftists in "witch trials", no it was a great time
Josak, YOU and I KNOW THIS! THAT WAS THE REAL 1950s, the Conservatives are discussing the TV 1950s a la HAPPY DAYS. Fa la la la la(sarcasm).
So it was a terrible place to live then huh?
I contend we could have dealt with a couple of issues but we had a moral society where you heard Yes Sir, No Sir, Yes Ma'am. No ma'am.
Now I realize you should impose such things because somehow that is racist or whatever the bassackwards reasoning will be here but I think in retrospect we should look in retrospect to what we really had.
But saying Yes Sir and Yes Ma'am does not equate to morality. That's just public etiquette.
Forced School Prayer
Abuse of the Poor
Oh yeah we were so HAPPY!!!
Were you actually alive then Albert?
See my comments on the other post by gw.
Lot's of those things you still have and the Liberal theosophy is not helping.
And everything you listed still goes on today - You just choose to ignore it. If crime is committed in the dark of night is it still not crime. " Liberals and their twisted Orwellian-isms. (Please note my deliberate stereotype)
Hey I choose to ignore it???????????????????????????????????????????????????????////
You have your savior....talk to him.
Yeah, I guess I'm just in denial about all those lynchings that took place...just last year as a matter of fact! Oh. and all those kids that are FORCED to pray in school, yep.
First of all I'm not a liberal. Your assumptions are absurd. Secondly, we know that crimes are always committed...the difference is that TODAY the victim has recourse, as opposed to the 1950s, when there was nothing the victim could do, because the USA, tacitly endorsed these evils. There are now agencies, such as Child Protective Services, the EEOC, Human Rights Commission, and ACLU, working to insure that abuse is rooted out and punished...and that every citizen is given equal opportunity under the law.
HAPPY LIKE THE 9TH CIRCLE OF HELL! YEAH, INVERSELY HAPPY, WHOOOPEEEE! AS THE THREE WITCHES STATED IN THE PLAY MACBETH:
FOUL IS FAIR, FAIR IS FOUL
HOVER THROUGH THE FOG AND FILTHY AIR.................
Not to mention fear of nuclear annihilation...
Because it was not like that in real life...
Sexism, homophobia, and racial segregation were major parts of this era.
There was also paranoia about communism, and the threat of a soviet nuclear attack.
Read some history man.
On a brighter note, taxes were much higher on the rich! It wasn't all bad .
c i always knew that to be liberal one requires experience of life , maturity and composure...this study proves it...
I agree, some things were better. I was brought up to say please and thank you and I never was allowed to sit on the bus if an adult was standing. However, life was certainly not good for everyone. If you towed the line and did what was expected of you it was fine, however deviations from the norm were not allowed.
Life is certainly not good for everyone now either.
Am I not right?
But then again we just gave the Great Compromiser four more years and it should all be straight after that if we remove all traces of 50's"ism" from our society. Right?
ANNOUNCER: Oh the 1950s, what a WONDERFUL time to live in. Children were seen, not heard! Women were to be oh so feminine and to be happy in the kitchen-Little Miss Happy Homemaker! Yes, little girls were brought up to be docile and so acquiesently ladylike, the womanly ideal- to be rescued by a prince/king in shining armor and LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER! Boys had to be little he-men, no sensitivities allowed- BEING FOREVER STOIC EVEN IF IT HURTS! Gays-well, shhhh, no such thing at all- you know THEY'RE SO .......DIFFERENT, YA KNOW! Blacks, Asians, and Latinos, yes what about.........THEM? The 1950s...........what a BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL ERA, A TOTAL BLAST OF THE GOOD OLD DAYS!
There can be little doubt that the Liberal mind is the most negative of all. Everyone is viewed in terms of stereotypes. Everyone.
I like how you argue against stereotypes by stereotyping liberals... Women were expected to conform to those stereotypes in the 50s, those who didn't were punished by society.
Just like you are punished by society now for not being politically correct.
Christmas is coming. Oh yes I used the C-word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Horrors! Just watch how many lawsuits are filed over trees and manger scenes and such and talk to me about societal punishment.
Oh, here we go again. The War on Christmas...
I have yet to meet anyone who cares if you say Christmas. I firmly believe there are very very few such people.
I agree. I say Merry Christmas and I don't even believe in God. Christmas is much more than a Christian holiday.
I also suspect you would offend and anger a lot more people walking around saying Happy Saturnalia (Christmases original Roman name before it was hijacked by Christianity) than you would saying happy Christmas let alone happy Eids.
I've never liked Peter Pan, now I know why, I never could associate myself with him!
Why this sudden fascination with the 1950s?
Why not choose, instead, the 1940s?
Seems to me Americans were civil and cordial and respectful during that decade. But they also dropped (at least temporarily) their prejudices and stereotypes and all pulled together.
But realistically, we can't unring the bell of social progress any more than we can unring the bell of technological progress.
Much as some of us luddites might yearn for the days when phones had dials or push buttons and were stuck to walls. And term papers were typed on Selectrics....
Sunday, Monday, Happy Days!!!
I'm not trying to be a Luddite but do you have to change E V E R Y T H I N G?????????????????????
I think not.
This is very interesting to me and this is why, I have heard oh so many conservatives tell me they were liberals until they grew up....Well, I thought about the way way I raised my children and the programming of television they were allowed to watch, they were taught manners, to listen, to share, to take turns, to not judge others, to "kil'em with kindness, to not waiste, to clean up after themselves, to pitch in, to give to others, to be kind, to never be a bully but always stand up to one, to work hard in school and at their jobs, to be responsible, to pray,etc. etc......If that is not a liberal, I don't know what is, and that makes me oh so very proud to be one
What you aren't getting Tammy, is us just terrible hateful child eating Conservatives are like that too.
There is a lie out there and it is used against both ideologies. THAT is what I try and point out......fruitlessly.
I do not think your a bad person Fae, I think your really cool actually, we just disagree politically, that's all, and I appreciate that you stand up for what you believe ...we are not all wrong or right, and we can only move forward together, I want to see healing and less division.
Tammy if you want to see healing it has to start with the people who consistently characterize only one not Liberal as evil. You know they do it they do it here and they do it in the national media. Daily. Probably twice since I have been typing this.
Fae, They do it the other way around too, but I can only control me...So that is where we start, with ourselves, right
I guess I listen to different media than you do because I don't hear that. What are specific comments? Not comments commenting on specific people and their actions but about ALL conservatives.
I don't believe all conservatives are bad. I've never said they are. I know both want what they think is best for their country.
But, I really am sick of conservative vs liberal. Most people are just trying to live their lives and many are not interested in politics. Besides, most people are not exclusively liberal or exclusively conservative in their beliefs.
What have "liberals" to do with the Peter Pan Syndrome? Nothing! The issue exists across liberal/conservative boundaries. Also, the age of 45 years is not accurate, but should be 35 years when you look for an individual to have taken responsibility. Sorry, but this hub is pointless.

Utopianism is the real crux of the problem: the insistence of attempting to establish that which can never exist. We are a society which is driven by hope. We are fed hope by every commercial, billboard and salesperson! We live for hope, thinking there is a magic fix for every ill. Government can...
