I am so sick and tired of hearing some dingleberry ( and I am being NICE!) say repeatedly How WE as Americans have lost our edge. Americans have lost their imagination and creativeness, and then being compared to BEJING and EUROPE! (SCREW THAT CRAP! BUT, What can one expect from a SOCIALIST MORON?) I love a challenge and I thrive on it! Now, I will admit that there is generation that has now become complacent, and want to be cuddled and had fed, BUT not by OUR own doing! Those that want to sit on the sofa and eat chocolate bon bons and watch Oprah are their own problem. Many today are so hung up on getting entitlements, I have had some raging arguments with some jerks that want me to give up my social security benefits so they can have them and more! The Problem is simple but they can't see the forest for the trees! I've worked since I was 14 and I paid in and now I get some of that back...( if it lasts and IF I am lucky!). Too many want someone else to pay the rent, put food on the table and clothes on their backs, while they sit around and become vegetables! That's the whole problem. I can't see it being GENETIC! It had to come from some source, and the best I have to say is that as far as I have been able to see in some of my son's friends it's the schools. I may be wrong, it may be their families too! Whatever it is, there are too many expecting a free ride! I asked a few people I know personally what they would do IF they suddenly LOST their benefits from social security... I was told in no uncertain terms, that they would TAKE whatever they needed and more! That means, they would rob, steal, even kill, whatever means they choose, to get what they FEEL they DESERVE! That was enlightening! I know who to avoid or at least keep the crosshairs on! It's systemic today. The IDEA that they are all owed a living and so much more, is beyond me. It's not unlike talking to a drug addict. They have "needs" and they will get that "FIX", one way or another! I no longer am the least bit concerned about the MZB's or any other zombies...they walk among us now, at this very moment! (Tantamount to blood sucking ticks, leeches, fleas, vampires, or flesh eating bacteria...for that matter!) It is sad.
