I read it in a newspaper from a hundred years ago

This is the place for thoughts that you want to share about nearly anything that comes to mind. Politics is ok as well. All notions and opinions are the view of the poster and not this site. Just remain civil in whatever you wish to express.

"Morons, aren't you that sect that has more than one wife?"

"We are"

"You should be bloody well hung!"

"We Are!!!" :shock:

A hundred years ago teachers were bitching about their pay..just like today. Of course living in barracks and wearing fatigues might get a bit tiresome if someone in authority took them up on their request. Wonder how they would feel about doing KP and wearing government contract army boots?

The American Boy Scouts at their tenth anniversary. A story in the Pensacola newspaper a hundred years ago. That was before any scout masters were child molesters. Think of the horror that that possibility would have provoked in the local church boy scout troop organizers. It was just about doing good deeds in those times. However, it looks like there was one Scout leader for every 3.75 boys back then. Lots of supervision in those days.

Here is an object lesson in not saying the first thing that pops into your head. A hundred years ago.

It was a case of being technically correct, but not a good idea to say it out loud...... :roll:

A hundred years ago. The bars were under prohibition conditions on St. Patrick's Day. Today we have a pandemic problem. https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn ... d-1/seq-1/

Here is a story from a Washington DC paper of a Bishop in New Orleans getting excited about the morals a hundred years ago of women in disrespectful dress attending church services. It is a story quoted from a Mobile press story, where , strangely enough, there was another bishop in place in a Gulf Coast city with a high Catholic population.

New Orleans.... the city that care forgot. The city where forty or so years ago you could walk down Bourbon Street and see through open fronted buildings women with only a G strings serving drinks and inviting patrons upstairs for a lap dance....and other things. Not to mention transvestite hawkers trying to draw people into exotic shows.

Now days, not counting the perverts in religious orders that we read about on the news, we have all sorts of sexual and gender identities stepping forward to be recognized. If that old bishop were alive today he'd probably have a stroke. That's assuming he wasn't some kind of pervert hiding under the cloak of clergy.

The old fire and brimstone clergyman walks into a sleazy bar and yells, "The Lord is with me
and I'm here to save all you brazen harlots and prostitutes!!!"
A drunk in the back yells, "Save one for me 'cause I'm too drunk to f--k right now."
