|I'm spoiled enough. I'm Lazy Enough. I'm Deluded enough, and Doggone it, if people don't like me I'll kill them.|
Mamma's "Golden Child" can't handle the truth.
The truth is that Mamma's little angel is not special. The truth is that life is not fair. The truth is that Mamma has been lying to the kids when she tells them they are wonderful. The truth is that you don't always get what you want - sometimes you get what you need - if you work for it.
And this folks, is exactly why people should teach discipline to their children and put the “everyone’s a winner” BS behind us.
When narcissistic whining punks that have been pampered and coddled daily all their life get a taste of the real world they don’t have the coping skills to deal with it. Let the kids stumble and fall a bit when they are young, so they can deal with real life once the stakes are raised in adulthood.
Winning and losing are NOT the same thing, they are not equal. You didn’t “win” a trophy by losing . . . What you win by losing is the ability to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and try again. Stuart Smalley has spawned an entire generation of kids that never learned these lessons. It should come as no surprise to anyone when suddenly faced with the reality of disappointment or failure for the very first time, they snap and retreat into a fantasy world.
Without winter, the warmth of summer is not a sweet. Winning a blue ribbon has no meaning if all ribbons are blue. Without a loser there can be no winner.
The very existence of the gutless snot-nosed murdering brat in Santa Barbara will undoubtedly be explained as a consequence of Americas "Gun Culture". It is not. It is a consequence of misguided permissive parenting and a perverted entitlement culture that rewards incompetence, mediocrity, and failure.
Raising a generation of whiney, entitled pussies doesn’t help matters any.
