The nineties is when the music production monopoly got together and started heavy criminal rap culture, to stock up the private prisons run by the drug cartels for profit.

The alone make the 1990s the worst time for music and many other things, look at the statistics via Google if you will.

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

I had a teacher who told me back in 8th grade "never forget, it won't get any better than this" and he was talking about the way of the world and everything back then, too.

I had professor at a community college in TX in the mid-90s tell the whole class we were all screwed and were all a bunch of entitled ignoramuses who were in for a world of hurt. I kid you not.

Is it just me, or did the post-Clinton years spawn the rise of the Gen X Yuppies? I miss the real people who used to live in my neighborhood, now it's all a bunch of Suburban-driving 40-45 yr olds with 2 kids and a 300k house looking down their noses at those of us who are trying to figure out how the fuck people dumber than us managed us to do so much better financially.

You may be right. I spoke to one of these couples once and the husband told me they had lost all the equity in their house, and it's a 300k house. That would suck. I could never be jealous of people in debt. I may not have the Toyota 4-runner but I *could* have one if I wanted, I just prefer to own my 7k car clear and free.

Since the turn of the millennium everything has gone to shit. Most of this shittiness can be blamed on the internet and technology in general, but a lot of it is also political and social. I would write a book about it but I'm too pissed off.

no one reads books anymore either.

i am really pissed off and was going to help a lot of ppl;; unfortunately i was discriminated against as a young adult white male.

I can only hope I will die soon.

True dat! Some guy fucked me over and I had never gotten him last name, he was being weird about giving it to me, so I just put his cell phone in google and found out everything I needed to be about him, and I mean EVERYTHING. Didn't stalk him, instead I was counting my lucky stars I didn't get more involved with him, he was a pathological liar.

It seemed at the the time we were poised for a modern renaissance.
It looked like there was such promise for the future.
Now we're at "the future" and it sucks and the future from now we already know will be even worse.
It's ironic that Obama ran with "hope" as a slogan.

Re: life was so much better in the 90s
I have to say the 90s were fun, and I've lived thru the 60s-80s also. Good remembrances from all those years though. I try to live "in the now", and now is really not all that bad. Eat healthy, exercise and avoid toxic chemicals (eat organic foods), avoid microwave radition from cell phones and other "wi-fi" devices... these all contribute to feeling bad, growing obesity problems and lack of creativity (which is a current problem in today's society).

I do not believe that technology is the cause but I couldn't agree more that things were better in the 90s. The baby boomers are reaping what their careless debt based consumerism sowed. World wide we are running out of cheap oil, cheap water, cheap rare Earth metals etc.

Additionally we have a very poor administrator running the U.S. and another in Canada, and another in Germany. I don't know about other places.

Paralyzed economies, leaders and poorly educated citizens make for an unpleasant present. Sad as it is perhaps the 90s feel like the good old days now.

Good point, you were in the right place at the right time for being in the military. I graduated in 05' and TBH joining the military seemed like a bad idea. (Still kinda wish I had in some ways, despite the risk.) And apparently the military allowed you to buy a chain of restaurants?

BTW, I'm not sure what you mean about inward reasons, since your reason for being happy is outward (material) apparently.

Re: life was so much better in the 90s
Remember when................


Close your eyes.....And go back in time....


Before the Internet or the MAC, Before semi-automatics.
Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...


Way back.....

Hide and seek at dusk. The Good Humor man,
Red light, green light. The corner store.
Hopscotch, butterscotch, double Dutch, jacks,
kickball, dodge ball. Mother May I?
Red Rover and Roly Poly.
Hula Hoops.
Running through the sprinkler.
The smell of the sun and licking salty lips.
Wax lips and mustaches.
An ice cream cone on a warm summer night,
Chocolate or vanilla or strawberry or maybe
butter pecan.
A cherry coke from the fountain at the corner
drug store.



Remember when...

Watching Saturday Morning cartoons... short commercials
Davy Crockett, Hopalong Cassidy, Junior Frolics,
The Three Stooges, and Bugs, or staying up for Gunsmoke



Or back further,

Listening to Superman or The Lone Ranger on the radio.
When around the corner seemed far away,
and going downtown seemed like going somewhere.
A million mosquito bites. Sticky fingers. Cops and Robbers,
Cowboys and Indians, Zorro. Climbing trees, Building
igloos out of snow banks.


Walking to school, no matter what the weather.

Running till you were out of breath .
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt.
Jumping on the bed. Pillow fights.
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down
was cause for giggles.
Being tired from playing.... Remember that?

The worst embarrassment was being picked last
for a team.

War was a card game.

Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any
bike into a motorcycle.

Eating Kool-aid powder.



Remember when...

There were two types of sneakers for girls and
boys (Keds & PF Flyers)and the only time you
wore them at school, was for "gym."

It wasn't odd to have two or three "best"
friends.

When nobody owned a purebred dog.

When a quarter was a decent allowance, and
another quarter a miracle.
When milk went up one cent and everyone talked
about it for weeks? When you'd reach into a
muddy gutter for a penny.


When you got your windshield cleaned, oil
checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for
free, every time. And, you didn't pay for air.
And, you got trading stamps to boot!

Remember when..

When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes
or towels hidden inside the box. When nearly
everyone's mom was at home when the kids got
there. When it took five minutes for the TV to
warm up, if you even had one. When your Mom wore
nylons that came in two pieces.

It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.

When it was considered a great privilege to be
taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with
your parents.
When girls neither dated nor kissed until late
high school, if then.
When all of your male teachers wore neckties and
female teachers had their hair done.
When they threatened to keep kids back a grade
if they failed ..and did! When being sent to the
principal's office was nothing compared to the
fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home.
Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it
wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs,
gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a
much bigger threat! and some of us are still
afraid of them!!! Didn't that feel good.. just
to go back and say,

Yeah, I remember that!

Decisions were made by going
"eeny-meeny-miney-mo." Mistakes were corrected
by simply exclaiming, "do over!" "Race issue"
meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Remember when...

Money issues were handled by whoever was the
banker in "Monopoly." The worst thing you could
catch from the opposite sex was cooties. It was
unbelievable that dodgeball wasn't an Olympic
event. Having a weapon in school, meant being
caught with a slingshot.


Nobody was prettier than Mom.

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.
Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable
aspirin. Ice cream was considered a basic food
group. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come
true. Abilities were discovered because of a
"double-dare."


Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but
also the fiercest protectors.

If you can remember most or all of these, then
you have LIVED!!!!

Pass this on to anyone who may need to remember
when...

I DOUBLE DARE YA!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23554071


Thank you. I needed that. Those simple times were the best. Not to mention the REAL MUSIC that went along with that.
Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
My soul and spirit needed the reminder. Wish I could go back for awhile. I loved those times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
