- Producer02/07/2016I'm Old School, Guess I'm a Weirdo.The Brexit affair and the U.S. election have a lot of people wondering if the world is going just a bit bonkers. Okay, extremely bonkers. You can call me old school, but...I'm in favor of professionalism. I like people who are humble. I prefer...
Comments03/07/2016 #26 Pamela L. WilliamsDon't I know it Cory. Sometimes I think to myself; people will stop believing me I have so many stories, but they are all true. Sometimes I feel like I've lived 10 lives in one or I drive myself into the world's craziest situations. Not sure what it is but I sure seem to get myself into the middle a lot. I hope my anecdotes aren't driving the Bees crazy! It's just how I find empathy for a post, by relating it to personal experiences. #2403/07/2016 #24 Cory GalbraithPamela, you are never short of personal anecdotes. Thanks once again for sharing your story and relating it to my post. On this long weekend - Canada Day here in my home country, and Independence Day in the United States, let us hope and pray that cooler heads will prevail in the years ahead - and that the virtues of patience, co-operation and mutual respect will win the day.03/07/2016 #21 Pamela L.

As the ex-wife of a former law officer I can vouch that when it came to his job he was as straight and an arrow. Unfortunately it's also why he left when a not so straight Sherriff came onboard. Although we no longer keep in touch I'm sure he felt a great sense of satisfaction when the Sherriff was arrested and charge with corruption. There are bad apples but they are not the majority, good ones do exist. Though we are no longer together I'm still proud that he stuck to his principles and surrendered a job he loved rather than compromise..03/07/2016 #13 Brian McKenzie#10 The Selective Service folks are severely hamstrung and steeped in their own bureaucracy. I was on deployment when I turned 18, having already served 2 years in uniform - when I returned to the States, I had a notice of fine and warrant for incarceration for failing to Register for the Draft. *Idiots.03/07/2016 #11 Jim MurrayIn marketing and communications which is my business, there are literally thousands of companies out there who still care about old school methods like business letters and direct mail. They don't consider them old school because they know what works for them. By the same token I don't consider anything you wrote here as expressing old school values. All you were expressing is the sane reality of things. Too many American people listen to Trump and think the world is going to hell on a hand cart. Too many people In Britain listened to Cameron and now they're having voter's remorse and feeling marginalized. The problem isn't with the way things are. The problem is that very few people are being told.02/07/2016 #7 Randy KehoI wonder how many former and current communists are longing for their version of the "Old School?" I guess it depends upon what side of the fence you're on. If Cuba is an example, then their "New School" is in session. "Old School," "New School." Would a school of any color smell as sweet.
