They didn't look as muscular in the late 90's as roid users, though. If you compared them to bodybuilders (who DO use steroids), they were tiny. But they were still nice and "built" - they had a good balance. I doubt that was all due to steroids. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] People's memories of the 1970s seem to be fading fast. The very youngest people with coherent memories of the 1970's of any sort are at least 37 or so, and the youngest people with professional careers in that decade are generally 57 or older. The youngest people to have had a professional career THROUGHOUT the 1970's are 66 and up. That decade is quickly receding into "ancient history." 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The 70's were a highly INSTRUCTIVE time for Americans. Events such as Watergate and the end of the Vietnam war imbued the populace with a healthy distrust of authority and claims from government officials. That was lost in large part after 9/11, with disastrous consequences. [ Reply | More ]

Sure we do. The Iraq War (a war based on absurd lies) had nearly 2/3rds support right after it got underway. Hillary and Biden and Kerry and Reid and Schumer and many Dems actually SUPPORTED it. [ Reply | More ]

Abortion rights have been steadily eroded in many states over the past decade with hardly a peep from "women's rights" groups. Clinics providing abortion have been shutting down at a rapid rate. Very interesting - "Millennial" women simply don't seem to care about this issue at all. [ Reply | More ]

No, we did not. Even though women could vote, it took til the 70s for many women to get comfortable voting differently than their husbands. "The women's vote" meant nothing for decades. [ Reply | More ]

np: I was born in '77 and have a few.. .grew up in the NJ burbs but dad's job was primarily in the South Bronx, and I rode along frequently. I think you could expand 70s to include up to about 1982. It was a time and place that makes me snort about people saying how NYC is going down the shitter now. Uh, you have no idea. Really. [ Reply | More ]
