I donít know about anyone else out there, but I canít help but to regret many of my decisions.

Tell me John to what purpose one should regret decisions made in the past that nobody can't do nothing about. One cannot go back in time and change them, so why regret and look back,like you say its water under the bridge.

Is it not better to look forward and try not to repeat the bad decisions that was made in the past? Maybe I'm wrong I don't know.Maybe I'm an eternal dreamer
that tries to find happiness in life by looking forward not backwards. smile.gif

Hi Lady of Avalon, some decisions made early in ones life, can loom in ones face, for their entire life. Decisions that can not be corrected, either in the present, or in future. (no matter how hard one tryís.)

And not repeating ones bad decisions, in the pursuit of happiness, is a given. Which is exactly why I sad, that Iím passionate about my beliefs now. In other words, we agree.

Thanks for your thoughts,
JC

I have to say that I remember all those show too.

But to say that you are cynical would not be the proper word. Set in your ways, maybe.

There was a lot of thing back then that I did enjoy but at the same time some of it I would rather stay with modern times.

For I would rather have Bathrooms instead of the Out House I grew up with.
Running water inside instead of 50' out in the front yard.
Electricity instead of the Coal Oil Lamps.

Yes I remember all of those days but I still try to hang on to those things that are simple in life and enjoyable. There is no need to complicate things and constantly rushing around as if they are going to be late. Late to what?

People do not have time for people anymore and this is sad.

So I would say that I am set in my ways but I would not say that I was cynical. wheelchair.gif

So make way, I'm coming through. tongue.gif

Let me just say I am old enough to forget most things. Know where you are coming from and especially after being forced into retirement earlier then planned or really should of I find atitudes about evry thing change and one gets real lazy and cynical. The world around us doesn't help for things are a tad over the top all the way around. Hang in there life does get better (or maybe it is attitude)

i wont give my age but i will say this; i remember the beatles first performance on "the ed sullivan show"

cyn∑i∑cal      (sĭn'ĭ-kəl)  Pronunciation Key
adj. 

  1. Believing or showing the belief that people are motivated chiefly by base or selfish concerns; skeptical of the motives of others: a cynical dismissal of the politician's promise to reform the campaign finance system.
  2. Selfishly or callously calculating: showed a cynical disregard for the safety of his troops in his efforts to advance his reputation.
  3. Negative or pessimistic, as from world-weariness: a cynical view of the average voter's intelligence.
  4. Expressing jaded or scornful skepticism or negativity: cynical laughter.

it seem the older i get the more cynical i am becoming. i don't believe it is the #2 definition at all (above) but the other 3 fit me real good.... and it is being cynical of everything (and everybody?) from my job to my past times... it is worrisome.

anybody else of age seem to have this going on? sad.gif  cause i really don't like it, yet it is so hard to fight.


Hey, the way I guess someone's age is to ask them who is Paul McCartney. If they say a Beatle, I know we're of the same generation. If they say he had a band called Wings, then that puts them in another group. If they know him as Sir Paul who got snookered by the one legged gold digger, they read too much People magazine. And if they don't know who he is, I immediately give them a crash course in music history because as you and I witnessed, the Beatles changed the world. They were the first super group.

Oh dear, I read your definition of cynical and altho I'm not quite that negative in general I do suspect that all politicians promises especially those regarding campaign finances are poo. And I am world-weary, in the sense that I suspect people don't really change much and few of them aren't going to eventually turn on you in one way or the other.

"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

I teach high school and am old enough to be many of the TEACHERS mother. I fight cynicism too and often lose the battle. These kids and their parents SCARE me. I could write for hours . . .

No sense of right and wrong, cheating is NOT wrong . . .
Disrespectful, ungrateful, self centered, unwilling to work for anything except a good time . . .
Insensitive, cynical themselves ......
UNPATRIOTIC, downright hateful about America!
BLAME others and their environment for any short comings, NOTHING is these kids faults, even according to the parents!

I feel like I am seeing the decline of Western Civilization before my eyes every day.

I have to leave soon or I'd go on and on . . .

My kids and I are going to pick up Trash on the Lake for National Public Lands Day because

Youíre right of course. One person can make a difference. The only problem is that one person often stands alone, or in a small sphere of influence. And when you compare that to, rampart greed, poverty, illiteracy, and the brake down of the family, you have good cause to be frightened. Of course that not to forget a growing contingent, of law biding citizens. Who now realize, that honesty isnít the best policy, because it has become more and more obvious. That the powers that be didnít get where they are, by playing by the rules.

Maybe itís time to wet that eraser, and wipe the entire blackboard clean.
So keep being cynical, cylassie, because it might be just what saves us.

If you think the school system is bad you should hear what I had to put up with today in the court system. And to believe I actually use to respect the system in my area.

In light of Alberto Gonzales, nothing would surprise me in the pursuit of justice. So if itís not to complicated, and you donít mind, just how did the court system fail you?

Excuse------me, but since when is politics not cynical, and not aloud to be part of, a ďgeneral discussionĒ? And besides, I was just following Robertís lead. With a funny segue about his experience in the courts, and Alberto Gonzales. But I guess weíll never know what happened to Roberto that day in court, to make him cynical. (should he have chosen to tell us) which was my question.
