Because for starters, there was no wars that we were involved in.  Yea, there was Grenada, but what I mean is, in the 60's and 70's we had Vietnam.  In the 50's we had Korea and the 40's, well there was World War 2 and in th 90's, we had the Gulf War.  Another thing was, there was Patriotism in the 80's that didn't come from being attacked. We just loved our country! Things also seemed new back then.  I mean, in today's world, we can get hundreds of stations on TV and there are more video systems and games that can be bought than we know what to do with, but the younger generation seems bored with it and are more hateful and full of resetment, at what I don't know.  I can remember the 80's were more of a laid back and enjoy yourself time and we didn't hate the world like the youth of today does.  It really is a shame that we have lost the ability to enjoy ourselves and it would be great if we could gt back to a time when the world seemed to have unlimited opportunties.

The 80's were like one big party. It was all about fun, feelin' good, and being young.

The 80's were kinda hard for me.  A lonely period.  But, I look back and remember some of the fun stuff that happened especially when I started college in 1988.  Yeah, back when I was a kid...

I agree with the person who said the 80's was all about everything being new: microwaves, VCR's, new cable channels, portable phones, just to name a few consumer type things.  But I think the overall vibe of the 80's was the ambition that trickled-down, not the money.  Everybody and their brother wanted to be rich or a hero (Superman, The Greatest American Hero, Rambo, any Arnold movie, Ghostbusters, etc.).  Now everyone wants to be famous, though. (American Idol, The Real World, any of the many "reality" shows with people who crave promo deals and fame afterwards)  TV just weirds me out now.

YEa the 80s was cool and still is, but I think teens growing up now are less ignorant.  Sex, drugs, and ignorance.  That's all it was.  A bunch of smokers who didn't care about the Surgeon's Children.  A bunch of people having sex and knew nothing about STDS, just knowing that this is what was cool.  There was alot of individuality back then, but since everybody wanted to be different, everybody just ended up being all the same.  I love the 80s and the 80s is going to come back.  THIS TIME people won't be as wreckless and ignorant.

Sometimes I wish I hadn't been born in 1987, because I missed most of the 80's.  It seems like such an interesting decade.  The computers were cool and not as complicated.  The video games weren't as violent.  My cousin used to own a GameBoy, I mean the original GameBoy, no color or anything.  80's shows and movies were great.  If only I had been born earlier . . .

Remember riding through town, parking at one end, and then the other? We would all meet up somewhere, have a big party out in a field somewhere. Everything was about rock and roll, who's hot and who's not. lol. The concerts, they were the best. I gratuated in 86. My son listens to rap, it makes me wanna tear something up.
