When I was a lad, back in the day, in my grandfathers world, I was taught that it was the "hard" that makes it great. Today it seems, so many of our children are taught to expect "Entitlements", from government, parents, schools, it doesnt seem to matter. I was taught that life is not fair, and its no body's "fault" but your own if you we not prepared to confront adversity. Now it seems its the "Government's" fault, and the Tax Payers responsibility. I was taught, it was better to dine on beans you grew yourself, then the Prime Beef doled out bye the Government.
In that long ago age, when Honor and Compassion were the moral currency of the land, Not the "Rolex" and "Nike Swoosh" logo's, that's how I though the world was, you helped out a neighbor in need, and solved civic problems as a collection of "Nabors". And the "Girl Next Door" was the heart you learned compassion, camaraderie and respect from as you both grew into the adults that now connected you to your youth, not some glitzy Web Cam whore come-on on an endless parade of pron sites on the Internet.
It's an education system who's source is the US Department of Labor and not the department of Education. And we are surprised when our children come out of 12 years of indoctrination as nice compliant credit card wielding corporate worker bee's. Now ... they can't read there own diplomas, have been socially isolated for there dissension, and academically ostracized for there innovation. But we got the finest work force money can bye, since the Ant Colony any way. Course, I remember my Dad, and Mom together after dinner and chores, (yes I had chores and it wasn't child abuse ) as I did my home work. That's another thing, I had home work in the 2ed grade! and "Hang'n at the mall with my peeps" was considered vagrancy or truancy.
I say the American people are getting just what they deserve, what all nations get who shun individual solventry, responsibility and honor and glut them self at the public dole.
And may god have mercy on your souls.
