Cartoon Life, What a Wonderful Time.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

I am so glad that I grew up in a time when cartoons were meant to make you laugh and use your imagination. Today every cartoon has a social justice message or a woke philosophy to it. It's no wonder children are depressed and suicidal today. Contrast that to this cartoon from the 1930's.

Don't you wonder what Walt Disney would say about his empire today? I doubt he would say anything... he would just puke. 

Cancel culture also is dumbing down the intelligence of our children. How are they going to learn if they can not even view examples of the past. I found this front page story in yesterday's paper interesting.

For the final performance on this high school stage the drama director wanted to close with one of the first performances on the stage 100 years ago. Nope it was deemed "that the material from the era were so racist you couldn't even talk about it". It just reminds me that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.

Okay, so we can not show our children what the world was REALLY like in the 30's? Our children might learn WHY we do things different today if they see how things were in the past. Let's not teach it, let's ignore and deny that it existed.

Good morning Bob. What has not been written or overlooked about history is the information that  should be known. Bet that the history studied 100 years from now will be best titled "pure fiction"! Enjoy your day.

There are so many things that were made in the past that never would be made today. As for history, whatever happened and however people acted/whatever they did should be shared and learned from, not hidden.

Good morning by the way!

I think you are correct Wayne Martin that one hundred years from now people will say "What were they doing, hiding our heritage?".

Amen Sister Kat Palmiotti ! We are NOT going to learn from our mistakes if we deny them and re-write them.

I continue to see the many ways that our spirits are conjoined Bob "RealMan" Timm 

I echo your words and march to the same drum. 

It is true, that we cannot fix stupid however we can vote out the evil, corrupt, people pretending to serve "we the people" all the while destroying America and the principles our country was founded on.

Provided there is no corruption at the voting booths. Our US AG wants to go after voter ID laws. In other words, he wants illegals to vote.

Good evening Bob,

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist you are so right! We cannot fix stupid but we can get out and vote out these idiots who are pretending to serve "we the people." They are tearing away the very fiber of our heritage!!

After the last election I am not so sure even voting works Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist but we must retain faith that this time around it will be a fair and honest election. So many of the founders principals have been destroyed that there are generations today that have no clue what the country was founded on not to mention the 10 or 20 people who have crossed the boarder illegally  lately.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX as I said to Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist , I hope and pray that our days of honest elections are not totally behind us. As far as speaking the truth... it's even denied here in the Rain at times. I expect my comment that there are as many as 10 or 20 illegal aliens crossing the boarder will get taken down by the truth deniers.

CONGRATULATIONS Bob, on having this blog FEATURED in the Old Farts Club group!

Funny you should say that Myrl Jeffcoat because the art students at Minot State University just had an event where they could sell product and Timmothy sold stickers of Titus and Philemon. They sold pretty well.

BTW, Titus & Philemon are both guinea pigs.

Myrl Jeffcoat thank you again for the feature in the Old Farts Club group! . I thought it an appropriate entry into the group showing a cartoon example from when you and I were kids (although I was not born until 14 years after that cartoon came out).

It has been proven over and over Leanne Smith yet in today's woke and PC environment the uninformed keep pushing for what has already been proven to be a disaster by history.
