Funny...but think about it

HIGH SCHOOL -- 1957 vs. 2008
Scenario 1:

Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.
1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack..
2008 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again.. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2:
Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.
1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2008 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled, even though Johnny started it.

Scenario 3:
Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.
1957 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.
2008 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for A..D.D. The school gets extra money from the state because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4:
Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a whipping with his belt.

1957 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and becomes a successful businessman.
2008 - Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy is removed to foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 5:
Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.
1957 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock.

Scenario 6:
Pedro fails high school English.
1957 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.
2008 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English..
Scenario 7:
Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.
1957 - Ants die...
2008 - ATF, Homeland Security and the FBI are all called.. Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism. The FBI investigates his parents -- and all siblings are removed from their home and all computers are confiscated. Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.
Scenario 8:

Don't you think your examples are a bit hyperbolic and exaggerated? It's easy to point to some of the crap that goes on today and claim that it didn't used to be this way, but that doesn't imply that the past was peachy keen.

If you insist on using overly-simplistic anecdotes, then where's the part about the black kid who tries to enter a white school in 1957 and gets mauled by police dogs in the ensuing riot?

1957-Black kid mauled by police dogs.
2009-Black kid sits comfortably in dumbed down school or in class where teacher has low expectations. Child is fast tracked to welfare state.

Fact 1963, 1st grade I'm warned by my teacher Mrs. Vorice several times to do my math. Begining level, 1+1= 0+1= 2+1= etc., etc... Several warnings I do not heed, Mrs. Vorice removes me from my chair and whips my ass! Couple of minutes later, I'm doing my math. Years later I realize what a blessing she was, I had her again in 3rd grade, I can read and write...
Today, a school psychologist is called, a conference is set up, I'm diagnosed ADD and drugged. Never learn to read... Mrs. Vorice diagnosed, treated and settled issue in 30 seconds... Well, maybe 4 minutes? I was allowed to cry, then she talked to me and told me... Charles do your work... Thank you Mrs. Vorice, you taught me discipline to, I love you to this day for that morning. What a teacher...
The preceeding is a fact!!!
