    Okay so I wrote a little book thing I guess and I'm considering doing something with but I don't know. Here's a description: Marrying Ben was the best thing Jeanie Banks ever did. Marrying Ben may have been the only significant thing Jeanie Banks ever did. 19 years after being pregnant, kicked out by her super religious parents, and dropping out of high school, Jeanie is a rich housewife, a class room mom, a member of a book club filled with bitches and questioning her own sanity. When a tragic car accordant causes Ben to fall into a coma, Jeanie's life is flipped upside down. As all evidence points to foul play, the police lead a full on investigation for the perpetrator, leaving Jeanie in a mess of a situation, questioning every decision she's ever made, and facing the hardest decision of her life. I'm sorry it's so long but thanks so much to anyone who answers

  • Why do old people say "The good old days", we sometimes they weren't really good times?

    For instance! My grampa had an awful childhood. He was an orphan living in the depression era. His new adopted parent was so cruel to him! She would make him work hard labor in the fields. And when he got paid, she would take all of his money, and not even leave him a dime.... She would only feed him bread and... show more
    For instance! My grampa had an awful childhood. He was an orphan living in the depression era. His new adopted parent was so cruel to him! She would make him work hard labor in the fields. And when he got paid, she would take all of his money, and not even leave him a dime.... She would only feed him bread and water. While this lady real kids ate Meat and potatoes... He would never have the time to play. And yes he still had to go to school. He didn't even have a bed to sleep on. Not because the foster mom was poor "she was normal class at the time" She just wouldn't buy him one. My grandpa tells story's of how he hated it. But at the same times he would call those the "good old days/ Good times" P.S. Sorry for any grammar errors

    Best answer: No, but you are a troll, offering a platform for the Holocaust deniers with silly questions like this. Don't do it.
    Oh , look, here's one of them.
    Fool (on the Hill) says:
    "Obviously, it had nothing to do with "persecution" - it was because the Enabling Act took away the power and control the Jews had in Germany, and they retaliated."
    "From the effect Untermyer had on his listeners, the Jews obviously had the kind of power in Germany that was devastating for them to lose - enough to start a war over."

    It had everything to do with persecution. Hitler used his power as an unelected dictator under the Enabling Act to take jobs away from Jewish workers - one of his early pieces of legislation stopped Jewish doctors working for charities in Berlin - in the same month he banned Jews from working in the Civil Service, ordered that they could not be called to the Bar, limited the number of Jewish students allowed to attend schools and universities and
    "July 14
    The Denaturalization Law revokes the citizenship of naturalized Jews and “undesirables.”
    https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007901
    He was stripping Jews of the ability to earn their living, to attend school and university, and of their rights as citizens, not of this mysterious 'control' over Germany, which, if it had existed would surely have stopped a rabid anti-semite taking over the government in the first place.
    The Jewish reaction was to suggest a boycott of German goods and services which was not applied.
    This is not a 'declaration of war.' By the way, even Hitler didn't claim it was.

    Best answer: No way I'd want to live in England during the Industrial Revolution. It was a time when the emphasis was on investment not consumption, so the workers had to work long hours for minimal pay. Many of the workers were children, who were severely abused, while women hauled loads of coal like mules. Also, back then, from about 1820--1860, sanitary conditions in urban areas tended to be appalling.
    Those who fared best were the usual upper class like the landed gentry. Rich businessmen did OK--although even they would do better AFTER the industrial revolution, not during it. Not until after all the factories, railroads etc were built could they really make profits.
