"RUNNING WITH SCISSORS"
IF YOU WERE BORN BEFORE 1970, WE WILL CALL YOU A SURVIVOR.
-CHANCES ARE YOU WERE BORN TO MOTHERS WHO SMOKED AND DRANK, TOOK ASPIRIN, ATE BLUE CHEESE, AND THE FIRST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE WERE MORE THAN LIKELY SPENT IN A HAND ME DOWN CRIB SPRUCED UP WITH COLORFUL LEAD PAINT.
-WE HAD NO CHILD-PROOF LIDS ON OUR MEDICINE BOTTLES, NO CHILD-PROOF CABINETS, OUTLETS, OR DOORKNOBS.
-OUR AUTOMOBILES HAD NO SEATBELTS OR AIRBAGS. AND RIDING IN THE BACK OF A PICK-UP TRUCK ON A WARM SUMMER DAY WAS A SPECIAL TREAT.
-WE DRANK WATER FROM A GARDEN HOSE AND NOT FROM A BOTTLE. WE SHARED A SOFT DRINK WITH FOUR OF OUR FRIENDS, ALL FROM ONE BOTTLE AND NO ONE DIED.
-WE ATE CUPCAKES, BREAD AND BUTTER, AND DRANK SODA POP WITH SUGAR. BUT WE WEREN’T OVERWEIGHT BECAUSE WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING.
-WE’D LEAVE HOME IN THE MORNING AND PLAY ALL DAY, AS LONG AS WERE BACK WHEN THE STREET LIGHTS CAME ON.
-WE’D SPEND HOURS BUILDING OUR GO CARTS OUT OF SCRAPS FROM THE WOOD PILE AND RIDE DOWN THE HILL ONLY TO FIND OUT WHO FORGOT THE BRAKE.
-NO ONE WAS ABLE TO REACH US ALL DAY AND THAT WAS OK.
-WE DIDN’T HAVE PLAYSTATIONS, NINTENDOS, X-BOX, AND 99 CHANNELS ON CABLE TV. NO VIDEO TAPE MOVIES, NO SURROUND SOUND, NO CELL PHONES, AND NO PERSONAL COMPUTERS.
-WHAT WE DID HAVE WERE FRIENDS.
-WE FELL OUT OF TREES, GOT CUT, BROKE OUR BONES AND TEETH, AND THERE WERE NO LAWSUITS FROM THE ACCIDENTS.
-WE MADE UP GAMES WITH STICKS AND TENNIS BALLS AND ATE WORMS AND, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, THEY DIDN’T GROW INSIDE YOU.
-WE PLAYED BASEBALL IN A VACANT LOT AND HELD LITTLE LEAGUE TRYOUTS WHERE NOT EVERYONE MADE THE TEAM. AND THOSE WHO DIDN’T, LEARNED HOW TO DEAL WITH DISAPPOINTMENT.
-THE IDEA OF A PARENT BAILING US OUT OF TROUBLE WHEN WE BROKE THE LAW WAS UNHEARD OF BECAUSE OUR PARENTS SIDED WITH THE LAW.
-WE CROSSED OUR EYES AND THEY NEVER STUCK.
-WE SAID THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE WITH “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” AND NEVER THOUGHT TWICE.
-WE RODE OUR BIKES TO FAR AWAY PLACES AND NEVER WORE A HELMET.
-WE CUT OUR HANDS ON METAL ICE CUBE TRAYS IN THE SUMMER.
-AND IN THE FALL, BURNING LEAVES IN YOUR BACKYARD WAS NORMAL.
OUR GENERATION HAS PRODUCED SOME OF THE BEST RISK TAKERS, PROBLEM SOLVERS, AND INVENTORS EVER.
SURVIVING ALL OF THAT MAKES ONE WANT TO RUN WITH SCISSORS!!!!!
THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT.
This text is from a county emergency manager out in the central
Up here, in the Northern Plains, we just recovered from a
Historic event--- may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" ---
with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90MPH
that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundred of
motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of
communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.
George Bush did not come.
FEMA did nothing.
No one howled for the government.
No one blamed the government.
No one even uttered an expletive on TV
Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.
Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.
Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.
CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or report on this
category 5 snowstorm.
Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.
No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.
No one looted.
Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something..
Nobody expected the government to do anything, either.
No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and
No Geraldo Rivera.
No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be
Nope, we just melted the snow for water.
Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed
The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask
for a penny.
Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments
delivered it to the snowbound families.
Families took in the stranded people - total strangers.
We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman
We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or
We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us
out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that
trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.
Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never
fallen this early, we know it can happen and how to deal with it
