Our government has gotten the idea that citizens don’t have enough sense to basically protect themselves.

“Better or Worse?” Print E-mail

Sometime I start thinking about changes that have taken place over the past 60 years. I come up with the question, is society better or worse now or then? I suppose there is no real clear cut solution or answer, and certainly if there were, it would be debatable.
