Every generation talks about how hard life wise when they were growing up compared to a new young generation. As a member of the baby boomer generation I remember my parents' generation telling me and telling my generation channeled it. We're spoiled. We had it made compared with it and the things that they had to endure when they were kids and in teenagers. We now that the baby boomer generation. Has grown into the establishment. Maybe this is a good time to -- today's young generation how spoiled they are. And how they haven't made compared to what our generation dealt with him. As -- is watching television in my apartment the other night. I picked up the remote control and I was changing channels and saw a promo for the CNN series the sixties. And it brought back memories of me sitting on my sofa as acute in the 1960s. And having to get up and walk over to the television set. To physically change the channel. And if you were trying to avoid the commercials you had to stand there until you thought the commercials were overtime and out. So you can tune back to the show that you were you wanted to get physically stand there and and change the channel. And that may be just think how differently his fortune nation generation. -- -- for several generations. It made me think about. Remote controls for example. Mean remote controls are like an appendage. Two young generation today in and that may -- think of other things that were were quite different to your baby boomer or if you're if you're older. And you remember some of the stuff that. If you had to do did that teenagers and kids don't have to do today let's talk about the at this hour to try to talk about this for the last couple days we'll probably get into today. When I think about all the changes resulting from the concern for safety for kids. That I have to wonder how my generation even survived. You wish to ride our bikes without helmets. Yeah.

Most albums and I'm not sure if you're part of my generation you we remember this most albums had some bad songs she she -- just -- -- year. You wouldn't skip over the -- talks. Well compared to today really wasn't that -- You had to yet. Walk over to the stereo. Pick up the needle. Hoping not to scratch the vinyl.

Today kids travel around in the strollers. That bear a striking resemblance to recliner. And they appear to be safe and strong enough to withstand reentering the Earth's atmosphere of its -- necessary. Any parents have a BC in the stroller parents have places for everything. It'd be every stroller has enough room for things that you could survived several days in the wild with you keep it. And of course there's a convenient cup holder for a cold beer. When we were bad in school. We got spanked. Often with a wooden panel -- -- -- ran into pretty desperate trying to -- by one count. To the ribbon cutting it -- -- Volvo yesterday and contention. Dennis and I spent a few years together in in grammar school. And they had corporal punishment and we were talking about the types the types -- we guide. That we -- -- it was interesting reminiscing. Also when we were young we could not talk back to our teachers. -- today's young generation they don't fear that the dreaded wooden paddle and they seem quite comfortable talking back to their teachers.

When I was a kid like parents -- endorse something that not many young people could could tolerate today. Every year we took a summer trip. From New Orleans to Phoenix Arizona where my grandparents and aunt and it was three days there between a drive there at three day drive back. We had a white Ford station wagon with no air conditioning. And and we which is looking so forward to checking into a motel along the way to have a swimming pool we can cool off. In the next morning we were back in a hot car but a full day of driving through one of the hottest parts of the parts of the country three days between. New Orleans at Phoenix. But you know we never complaint. Because that's all we knew I can't imagine taking that trip today especially. With young people and and about young people traveling today their their videos. There. Their phones -- entertainment centers and we used to pass the time planks and some gains I don't even remember what the games were but I think -- involve the license plate game. It's something else that something to do with singing stupid songs for their parents. Are from Covington -- under the WLR. -- one thing that I did think of it a lot until.

Stores were closed on Sundays. Kids today younger generations today they can go to the store whenever they want to. I remember going to do the grocery story if they sold hardware your stuff it was covered up with like a blue TARP. You could buy hardware related items you because you were supposed to arrest on Sunday. And you were supposed to do anything. Manual. And so you you could not buy hardware type equipment. He -- something else that I thought of two. Here's what a young generation. Has going for. You see if I was at home playing something. Playing with something toy or whatever and my mom needed cigarettes and beer. She -- -- to the store. She sent it to the time saver. Up the street to go -- cigarettes in the year.

And I'm just wanted to let you know and that means he can and it's so funny because I am I'm one of eight children.

But then that means it's not a control committee I think. Internet it's wonderful but it's kind of destroyed in the world to wouldn't. Until we can get back and think you know we're watching orientated things and. And hopefully that'll -- aperture and all I'm on Politico thank you for. Thanks and you know I remember in school you know -- school shootings are horrible and no kid should have to route to go to school and worried about being shot. But an even bigger threat than that was when we were growing up. And we worried about on a daily basis we worried about the Russians. Dropping a nuclear bomb on our city. We had drills to practice what to do if there's a nuclear bomb attack. I realized that school shootings are serious but you know we're talking about total annihilation. I'm not complaining about any office. Because life was good we had a lot of fun. Every generation witnesses their kids' generation with conveniences in new technology that makes life seem so much easier. And today's young generation with their cellphones and computers in tablets in 360 degrees of entertainment 24 hours a day seven days a week. They're going to be in a position when data telling young generation how hard life is for them what are we gonna say you know the batteries used to go to dinner arsenal phones.
