RANT

AirForceWife sent me a link to a heck of a rant...

Iím pissed off by how soft many in our nation have become. How whimpy the tone, how spineless the resolve. What happened to that brutally real notion that people should be held responsible for his or her actions? Nowadays, it always seems to be someone elseís fault, whatever it is. Got a life of poverty, itís rich folks doing it to you.

Alcohol addiction, substance abuse, your mother never said she loves you. Having trouble finding work, itís the white, black, purple guys keeping you down. Your car company is going under, itís the unfair business practices abroad and an economic downturn. Hey, nimrods Ė newsflash. LIFE IS HARD. The End. Get used to it, suck it up, get some spine, invent some if you have none, and GET ON WITH IT!!!!

Oh. My. Word. Thank you Sarah & AFW for that!!! :-) I've liked that guy since Alien Nation, LOL... (and I'm sure that his frequently-used acronym means "Forget That Silliness" ;-)

Jokes aside, it really is heartening to see more people willing to put serious chips down to stand up against tyranny. There are more of us out here all the time! :-)

AMEM! Honestly, I wish more people would feel this way instead of defending people's avoidance of responsibility. Be thankful for the blessings you have and appreciate the ones you earn. Life is hard for everyone - it's all relative. Too often the will power to overcome adversity is what separates the strong from the weak. Not skin color, economic backgrounds from birth, etc. I've know plenty of rich kids to piss away their money and plenty of smart kids to throw away opportunities. There were times I was working 3 jobs to support myself. Not because I wanted to, and it wasn't always fun. Who the @#$!@# wants to work? It would be awesome if we were all rich and could travel the world 24/7, but then what would we have to strive for. I have to say that I actually agreed with Phil Gramm when he said this summer this is a nation of whiners.
