No internet or talk radio where sociopaths could congregate to spread their messages of ignorance and hate across the globe.

All public schools were very strong on math & science, because of “Sputnik,” evolution was taught everywhere.

Ronald Reagan, the actor?!

Chadu

It seems you already sparked an interesting conversation.

By the way, I hate to have to point this out, but your first link isn’t working. I click on it, and it tells me the page doesn’t exist.

Most of the boneheads of the Tea Party have this rose-colored vision of the past where men were real men, women were real women, blah, fucking blah.

The reality is, these people are like the character in Bruce Springsteen’s Glory Days. They all turn out to be former, loser, has-been, used-to-have some kind of potential but they fell short, and they would like to return to that place and time where they mattered … regardless of how unlikely it is that they’d make any better a decision this time around.

Return to an even earlier point in history, and you’d hear non-stop BITCHING AND WHINING about how hard everything was. Rewind our social clock just one century, and well most of us would drop dead immediately of the diseases we have no defense against. There’s a reason the population in 2013 is five times as big as it was in 1913: we’re better at keeping alive these days. It’s a joined, cooperative effort.

But also, the day to day mechanics of living would wear most of these lazy-ass Teabaggers out. I don’t think they are prepared to wash their own clothes by hand, or crank the handle on front of the flivver to start it, or any one of the dozens of formerly-very-difficult tasks that we have automated or dispensed with entirely in this day and age.

I think something that they’d run afoul of quite quickly is the use of language, etiquette, and also the more apparent classism existing back then. If they go to eat in the wrong establishment without being properly dressed, acting correctly, etc. they will quickly get the cold shoulder in whatever town they attempt to settle into. There are a lot of expected behaviors and downright social straightjackets there that they would be clueless about.

Finding that Christianity was considered to be about the worship of Jesus Christ rather than Ayn Rand, and that “charity” meant more than tax-avoidance

That’s what the local Klan meeting is for. Dressing up in white hoods causes too many problems nowadays.
