Fresh Milk – Milk used to be a liquid that came in a sterile bottle from the dairy. It would mysteriously appear on your porch.
Mail boxes at my doorstep. You never had to walk 2 blocks to get your mail.
When athletes didn’t use Performance Enhancing Drugs. (Steroids) Record books didn’t have asterisks next to the player due to congressional allegations.
Cars that looked like the company brand. (When a Buick looked like a Buick) Now every car looks like the bastard child of a Prius.
Safe Neighborhoods that weren’t gated. You could leave your doors unlocked and your kids knew that the street lights were their curfew.
Drive in Diners (Not junk fast food holes) A&W Root beer Drive ins were fine. At least the meat was cooked in the same zip code. They had Jukeboxes and pinball machines.
Movies like Casablanca that didn’t require special effects and gratuitous sex. Actors actually had to study acting.
Schools that educated the student; not public hangouts that passed even the dumbest of Obamas for the federal dollars.
Ronald Reagan and the Pledge of Allegiance.
A healthy respect for the Holy Trinity. (GD was not allowed on TV, let alone cartoons) Politicians didn’t drop F bombs.
