How many people remember an America when ..... ?

No suggestion about whether it was good or bad but.......How many people remember an America when.. ?? People did not have a " world owes me a living " mentality People would rather be poor and work harder rather than accept the shame & disgrace of being on the government " dole " The only people who called for society to assure that everyone " spread the wealth " & get their " fair share " of goods & possessions were " pinko-commies " Men were willing to " dig ditches " and women were willing to " take in laundry " or work as a " seamstress " at entry level jobs and did not think that many jobs were " beneath them " and did not expect to or demand to " start at the top " People respected the rights, good and property of others and tried to live by " the golden rule " of " do unto others as you would have them do unto you " People either paid cash or waited until they had saved up enough money to buy most things Men stood up on a crowded bus to give a lady their seat, children " excused themselves " from the dinner table and people were courteous to each other & said " please " and " thank you " to each other People had equal rights and equal opportunity but nobody was " entitled " to equal success " Achievers " or " successful " people were not called " greedy " and you were proud if your son or daughter became a Physician, Stock Broker, Attorney, Clergyman or Banker People who insisted that they somehow had a right to " enttitlements " guaranteeing them things like health insurance, a free college education, etc. were sent to the hospital for " psychiatric evaluation "
