This is a reppost from a website called Quora. I appologize for the cursewords contained in this but I felt that the message was well worth reading it.
What should we stop teaching younger people?
For God damn sure we should stop teaching them that they “deserve” anything. You don’t deserve shit in the world that you don’t go out there and get it for yourself. We now have an entire generation of kids who are now in the workplace that have grown up with “not keeping score because someone’s feelings will get hurt if they lose” and “participation trophies for everyone”. Well, I have a reality check and a wake up call for everyone, there is no such thing as a “participation trophy” for life and second place is still the first loser. You all need to purge yourself of this bullshit progressive idealism that you were spoonfed as a child and realize that if you don’t get off your ass and make a significant contribution to the world in some capacity you are going to have a hard fucking life ahead of you. Your mamma and your daddy didn’t want to tell you that shit because they wanted to be your “friend” and not your “parent”, but I am here to tell you, you have been fed a lie all your life and the real world isn’t going to give you a warm fucking hug. It is going to chew your ass up and spit you the fuck out!
Recently ran across this old song by Jimmy Dean. Not so much music as a great “talking” message. If I can find this on youtube I will try to add it here.
Our world needs to heal itself and I wish we could all start right here and right now. Please listen to this a couple of times and just relax and listen.
Sorry I couldn’t help but post this. Great Cartoon I found on Facebook.
If someone has beliefs or says things that I don’t like I just don’t respond and try to change the subject. I make it a habit not to engage in conversation on sensitive subjects and just not verbalize things that might be not to certain peoples liking. I have friends and family members who are on the opposite side of the fence from me politically. With that said it seems that those who are “Anti – Trump” say and do the most vile hateful and intolerant things and makes me wonder what is wrong with our nation and how do we fix it.
It seems to me the people who scream “racist” the most and the real racist – everything is not about race.
And also nobody can go through life without seeing, hearing or experiencing things that they don’t like – it is not possible unless you live by yourself on a mountain somewhere.
An old country song I love. I dearly wish todays artists had the faith and values that the older artist did.
