Going To Hell In A Handbasket

Going To Hell In A Handbasket

I shall not succumb to the evil forces of this world. They are not only lurking in the dark alleys they control the brightest lit streets and Broadway plays. Evil has taken over most of the entertainment industry. At one time there was censorship to control pornography, today you cannot find family rated television programs unless you buy your own on tapes. I will not capitulate. I will simply leave the television set turned off and not waste money on movie tickets.

Illegal drug traffic is one of the biggest businesses in the world today. Now legal drug sales are taking control of millions of people’s lives as they become addicted to the over-the-counter and prescription medication. People in all walks of life fall for these easy drugs that seemed harmless at first but end up ruining their lives along with the lives of the family.

It is up to hospitals and doctors to control these drugs. They must not succumb, cave into the drug companies any longer. People of the last generation went through their whole lives without tables covered with pill bottles. Many lived to be 90 years old and all they ever took was an aspirin. Today we need a handful of pills to start every day, something is very wrong with this picture.

Young people by the millions have succumbed to the use of alcohol and tobacco, lung cancer is showing up in younger and younger people. Alcohol consumption continues to grow and is a problem in many schools, even the elementary schools have kids coming to class who have been drinking at home. That paints a very poor picture of their home life.

When the whole nation continues to succumb to evil of all types the future looks like hell. Going to hell in a handbasket. This is the defination.

To be ‘going to hell in a handbasket’ is to be rapidly deteriorating – on course for disaster.
