The problem arises when personal giving and caring for our fellow man become institutions of government... that's when the result is generation after generation of snowflakes.

We interrupt this program to bring you this special announcement...

When I was of school age, the last person on earth I would notify if a teacher found the need to become firm with me was my father. I would have gotten my rear end tanned for having done something that provoked the teacher to react. Today, the teacher, the school, the county, the state and anybody else they could find would be sued, damages awarded, new guidelines instituted and a litany of sensitivity training courses made mandatory... all because a snot nosed kid decided to wise off to a teacher. We bring it on ourselves when we remain silent in the face of such nonsense.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program.
I am a teacher and wholeheartedly agree. Thank you jyuma!

miko1aj Yes wallyo, it's an extra from our line of hand-made-from-organic-hemp grown on an Amish farm, known for their attention to using only the nature's best GMO-free plants :-)

I like the rustic belt. Is it included or an accessory?


Years ago I remember hearing of a craze in Japan where they were selling used Jeans worn by an authentic American cowboy.

benztag With the additional dried paint, and ripped knee features, I would think Nordstrom would pay more than your asking price.

benztag I can't believe it, I just changed out of those pants after days spent rolling around under the Benz, and having just worn them again while doing yard work in drizzle. My wife might even stop telling me to stop working on things in my new dungarees, I mean "jeans" so I don't get them full of grease, and dirt.

Ahh, the good old days, before the dawn of what I call "displaced responsibility".
