This a hard thing for me to put into words. The social ills of today and having to deal with the jackassery and fucktards full of willful ignorance and self-entitlement. Just me getting old and cantankery (cantankerous and cranky) ~ as many have done before me I’m sure.
We were born with, One mouth and Two ears. Why do people insist on using them in reverse? Meaning we should listen twice as much as we TALK.
Where it seems to have started is, in the loss of the family unit and core family values; that can be traced back to the late fifties. Granted times have changed and families need the extra income that mom brings in; however, that has created at least two generations of latch-key kids.
The courts are raising our kids because parents believe in the spare the rod, spoil the child have set a new standard of kinder/gentler, where any type of discipline that isn’t go stand in a corner for ‘Timeout’ or omg lets take away your phone, is considered child abuse; oh they have spared the rod alright, and it shows. Yet they won’t stop to consider they are the ones setting the examples and making the rules and society has fallen right into the trap. Those what are old school like me; that believe that if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything; have become pariahs.
Add drugs, video games, soaring costs, divorce, social media and the internet. Through the advent of technology we are own worst enemies. Kids don’t play outside anymore; they are bullied online instead of the playground. Lest we not forget that we are a kindler gentler nation. I don’t know how many foreign nationals that I have talked to, that think our government is a joke and Obama is the court jester. Not to mention most Americans are fools, they take their freedoms for granted. Not my words, theirs, although; you won’t get any arguments from me.
No one knows or remembers to teach the value of delayed gratification, or common sense; which is a catch phrase for those of us old enough to remember getting out butts beat for not looking both ways to cross the street. MY all time favorite these days has got to be—SELF ENTITLEMENT; I showed up I want an “A,” or “where is my check, I don’t care that I didn’t work for any of it,” ”I want my rent paid and food stamps.”
This is where it gets tough or hard to swallow; thousands of men and women have given it all for these morons. I personally have “gone outside the wire,” with fully loaded weapons; knowing and embracing the fact that it could all go bad very quickly. I came back with a lot more baggage than I left with.
To think, act and say as they do. The Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon’s, Sean Penn’s, Natalie Mains; of this place they call home, and that has made them rich. These people use their fame and influence to bash America. I hear it in the kid’s mouths in class, the same crap and ideologies.
America doesn’t have a culture. Hmm? Then why are we the great evil in the west that needs to be destroyed? Or the fact there is still honor killings and maiming going on in the Muslim world. This is the lack of critical thinking I am talking about and has become paramount. I call it willful ignorance and for this I will use the example; just because I can’t explain quantum physics, or what a joule is in detail doesn’t mean that I haven’t looked it up and spent hours reading and researching it. From what I have heard when I tell people who; it makes me very very unique.
I don’t care if you agree with me or not, just take the time to examine at least some of the facts. Or in other words don’t believe everything you read or hear on the net, news, radio or TV. Six companies own all the TV stations (very small amount) when you think of the 1000’s of channels available.
Everything here is through a lifetime of study, mostly of watching and listening to people as well as many self experiences of one kind or another; none of it is embellished! Much of it is actually understated and under-emphasized. These life lessons are what I have tried to bring to the table and what makes me so damn frustrated when others won’t shut up and listen or even attempt to learn for themselves. Include this with extra baggage I brought home; I have NO FUCKING TOLERANCE OR PATIENCE for most people.
I live by some simple values that are all but forgotten.
Better a man thinketh you’re a fool than open your mouth and prove it.
