100 years ago….

What a difference a century makes!
Here are some statistics for 1920:

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.
Fuel for cars was sold in drug stores only.
Only 14 percent of homes had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of homes had a telephone.
The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.
The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.
A competent accountant could expect to earn $2,000 per year.
A dentist earned $2,500 per year.
A veterinarian between $1,500 and 4,000 per year.
And, a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.
More than 95 percent of all births took place at home
Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND government as "substandard."
Sugar cost four cents a pound.
Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.
Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.
Most women washed their hair once a month. and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

The Five leading causes of death were:
1 Pneumonia and influenza
2 Tuberculosis
3 Diarrhea
4 Heart disease
5 Stroke

Crossword puzzles, condoms, The Pill, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.
There was neither a Mother's Day nor Father's Day.
Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write
Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were available over the counter at local drugstores.
Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates stomach, bowels, and is a perfect guardian of health!" (Shocking?)
Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help...
There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.of A.

Imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.

Jihadis and spearchuckers.

The West will be dead.

It's pretty obvious, now. Even if a majority of the fascist medical experiment survive, they won't be reproducing.

Eventually, with energy cut off (by the Elites) starvation will be rampant.

Finally, we found something primitive people are better at - subsistence living. Doesn't hurt that there's been no serious pressure to jab them, even those who are here.

I wish I lived during those times and even earlier. The industrial revolution eventually destroyed the chance of achieving a good life through hard work and personal responsibility. Whatever we had once is gone, replaced now by plastics and debt!!!!

Sound money; and legal protection for individuals rights, including the rights of groups of individuals working for a common purpose. Responsible taxation. Oh, and a public that had a moral code that reflected Natural Law.

All gone, now. Hard times make strong men; strong men make good times; and good times make weak, corrupt men.

Yeah, lucky us, we're stuck here in the weak, corrupt men era! Bottom's up!

That's what they're concerned about. Bottoms.

I remember a gag tee-shirt being sold in Hustler Magazine, 30 years ago, or so.

"SODOMY! It's FAN-F__KING-TASTIC!"

Not really funny, but today it's where we're at - reflecting on how demented and feral and vile we've become
