A "different" drug problem....

This is a letter to the editor of a newspaper:

Doug... 8)

The other day someone in the store in our town read about a Meth lab found in an old farmhouse in the next county, he asked me a rhetorical question; why didn't we have a drug problem when we were growing up?
I replied, I had a drug problem when I was young:

I was drug to church every Sunday morning.

I was drug to church for weddings & funerals.

I was drug to family reunions & community socials, no matter the weather.

I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.

I was drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didn't put forth my best effort in "everything" that was asked of me.

I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profanity.

I was drug to mom's garden and flower beds to pull weeds & cockleburs from dad's fields.

I was drug to the homes of family, friends, & neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, fix the clothesline, or chop some firewood.

And if my mother had found out that I took even a single dime as tip for this "kindness", I was drug right back to the woodshed!

Those drugs are still in my veins & they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, or think.

They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroine; and if todays children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place!!

God Bless the parents who drugged us!!!

Do we really need to revisite the "My world only exists because of GOD" thing?

Left Field Bro, I was of the understanding all the "religious stuff" would give way to car talk. How About something about how "Jesus build my hotrod" or something........ :roll:

I'm having a "religous intolerance moment" :

I really don't think it states anything other than if kids had more discipline, America wouldn't have some of the problems it has today...

Actaully, it's not a joke or a sermon. It's an actual letter signed concerned reader; written to a newspaper editor's column simply stating that kids need to be "made" to have a little respect & discpline. Just like most of us on here did...

(Not to be made into a religious or political debaccal).
