What is happening to our society? No, I’m not talking about Trump winning the election and how 50+ million uneducated white males could vote for him. I’m talking about the pussification of the younger generation. This has become a rising trend for a while now and for the past few years has started to go parabolic.
There has been a lot of bantering back and forth saying Millennials are going to be the best generation. I think this thought is based solely on how well millennials can learn new technologies. The problem is that they are mostly introverted and don’t know how to do basic things like pay bills, deal with adversity, hit a nail with a hammer, etc.
The following article from the Wall Street Journal came out yesterday and I about flipped my shit after I read it. I get so upset every time I read it that I have to stop midway through and take a timeout to color in my coloring book and pet my therapy dog. I’ve read it five times now and have only thrown up eight times.
Dozens of students at Cornell University gathered on a major campus thoroughfare for a “cry-in” to mourn the results of the 2016 presidential election Wednesday, with school staff providing tissues and hot chocolate.
At Tufts University, arts and crafts were on offer. And the University of Kansas reminded students via social media of the therapy dogs available for comfort every other Wednesday.
There was a steady flow of students entering Ms. Boynton’s office Wednesday. They spent the day sprawled around the center, playing with Play-Doh and coloring in coloring books, as they sought comfort and distraction.
I’m sorry, but when did colleges double as child daycare centers? If I was helping pay for my child’s education at a university, I would tell them if they attend any of that bullshit then they can start looking for a part time job because I’m not supporting them anymore. It’s called tough love, snowflake. My dad would have ripped off his belt, bent me over his knee, and beat my ass if he knew I was doing that at college instead of beer bonging Natty Light like a normal college kid. Then he would hand me over to my mom where she would take a couple of licks to the side of my head with a wooden spoon. Again, tough love.
You know who needs real therapy? Our soldiers who go overseas to fight terrorism. The majority of them that were exposed to the battlefield come back with PTSD. An uncomfortably high percentage of them commit suicide because they are so messed up in the head. They need therapy to help them cope with the horrific things they’ve seen or done to protect our freedoms. How do you think they get treated during their training? They don’t get coddled by their professors. They go through grueling training to get prepared for the battlefield where they get shot at and sometimes killed. Think of them next time you feel offended or “triggered” because of someone’s status on Facebook or Twitter. Think of them tomorrow during Veterans day instead of blocking traffic because you’re butthurt that your vote for Clinton didn’t matter.
What has caused us to become so weak as a society? My guess would be from all of the free handouts that we have become accustomed to receiving. Free handouts and entitlements from our ever-growing socialist regime. Nothing in life is free. Someone always pays for it. Yet, every time something doesn’t go your way, you demand that someone else pay for it.
Your steak wasn’t cooked perfect – I DEMAND A REFUND!
Your car tire blows out – THE MECHANIC SHOULD FIX THIS FOR FREE!
Your shirt rips after you’ve owned it for 5 years – THEY SHOULD REIMBURSE ME!
But they hurt my feelings! 🙁
Ya, well, my feelings got hurt when $CMG reported shitty earnings and I had to sell their stock because I thought it was going lower. I didn’t run to my safe space and pen a personal attack letter blaming Ackman and demanding he fix the company. I moved on and looked for new opportunities instead of wallowing in my grief over something I could not control. I took control.
This is a non-partisan, non-racial, and non-gendered issue friends, so don’t try to spin it.
Stop watching Real Housewives and The Kardashians. Stop getting on Facebook to post an ignorant status about how you are upset about the election outcome. Stop burning the flag, seriously, or get the fuck out. Burning the flag should be a minimum $5,000 fine and instantly deported. Whenever the 3:30 ramp fails you don’t see me going to the steps of 33 Liberty and lighting a flag on fire and screaming at Janet and Goldman Sachs. Show some patriotism. If you hate this country or the President, leave. No one is forcing you to be here.
We need to be a stronger race, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Take some creatine and do some squats and kettle bell swings. Read books, start a business, help someone out, become a better person instead of whining and making excuses. Figure out ways to solve problems without complaining.
