Statistics comparing life today with 1907?? I'm talking what I have observed with my own eyes during my lifetime, Brandon. And I do question many of your assertions that life is better today. Sure our technology is better than 50 years ago- but what about crime, civility and morality? No-way. Things happen these days that were absolutely unthinkable 50 years ago. Give crime, promiscuity, divorce, and unwed mother statistics comparing 2007 with 1957 please.
And knowing your conservative Christian values I'm really surprise you think today's music, movies and TV are better than the wholesome stuff of the 1950s. The sex, violence and profanity filled Rap and Hip-Hop of today is better than the innocent love-songs of the 1950s? Or the raunchy sex-filled Sit-coms on your TV tonight are better than the wholesome family shows like "Lassie", "Father knows Best" and "Leave it to Beaver"?
