We had an election a few days ago and now the world is freaking out.
I’ve never seen so many snowflakes screaming, crying, and gnashing their teeth.
This is what you get when you bring up a generation by not letting them experience failure. This is what happens when you don’t keep score because you don’t want to make anyone feel bad. This is what happens when you give everyone a trophy because they “participated”.
My generation wasn’t brought up this way and my parents generation was brought up even more strict than mine.
We were spanked when we did wrong. We didn’t get gold stars for going to school unless we went every day for the whole year. We knew we had to be polite to our elders and we knew if we weren’t there would be repercussions.
I like to think my kids were brought up a bit better than the snowflakes we are seeing protesting something that happens EVERY FOUR YEARS!!!
I like to think my kids knew what it meant to lose and what it meant to win and that they were strengthened by both.
I didn’t vote for Mr. Trump. I live in California where it doesn’t matter who you vote for because the Democrats have convinced every poor family and every non-white family that the only way to live is to have the government take care of you.
I didn’t vote for him because I knew my vote didn’t matter and I just didn’t care for him or her. But if I had lived in a swing state I would have voted for him because to vote for her would have been a vote to continue the decline. This country has been headed down for way too long. It’s time we started letting our children know how to lose so that they can live in the real world.
