Did we go from a nation that could steel its spine for the greater good to a nation of complete pussies? we have taken a nation forged by hard men and women and made it into a latte-sipping, metrosexualized place where the slightest offencive thing is grounds for a lawsuit. Why is it that so many people idolize cops and soldiers who do whatever it takes to get the job done on the big screen and then endlessly complain about the men who do that dirty, tough and chaotic work in the real world?
And How did our political discussions and much of our culture become dominated by whichever pathetic wimps are fastest to cry out that they’re offended or that someone else is being insensitive? Whatever happened to manning up Whatever happened to taking pride in supporting yourself and your family? Whatever happened to the nation that rewards doers, not the people who are most creative about coming up with new ways to claim life is unfair? If America’s future is going to be as bright as its past, we need a lot more tough people who can solve their own problems and a lot fewer wimpy, whining children masquerading as adults.
