We hear the term “we deserve it” so much these days that it’s barely a blip on our mind’s radar. From the recent hamburger flippers demanding $10.00 per hour because, after all, “we deserve it” – which, by the way… no you don’t — just about everyone these days thinks they are entitled. The pendulum swings 180 degrees, from the welfare leaching baby mamas who think they are entitled to your earned money for their bad choices in life… to the plastic surgeons’ Barbie dolls endowed with bionic boobs, that go looking for love in all the wrong places, who think because of the money invested in their bodies that they are entitled to Mr. Right – which. by the way… no you aren’t.
When did a privilege turn into a right? It seems — as usual — the “we deserve it” movement started with liberal government whispering into the ears of the easily mislead. “You deserve it” has become the liberal politicians mantra. Usually used in an attempt to stir up strife, intending for those “less fortunate” to project their jealousy and resentment towards people with money. Yet, in all reality, it’s the middle class –not the rich — who ends up the receptor of this ire. Which inevitably translates into votes from the “we deserve it” – your money– for more liberal policies, further pushing the same middle-class heads further under the water.
Take a look at colleges, which for hundreds of years were mostly “Ivy League”. (The term “Ivy League” has connotations of academic excellence, selectivity in admissions, and social elitism.) Around WWII the influx of affordable smaller colleges and junior colleges really took off in and around the country. Up until then, millions were still on farms and ranches working the family business. Everyone else was expected to get a J.O.B… and many took whatever job they could find.
Yet, presently, college is thought of as a right, because after all, we deserve it…Says who? And why is government, via our tax dollars, subsidizing all the crybabies? (I am not referring to our combat veterans attending college, who do deserve all and more, but that’s another article.) Crybabies who can now take “credited” classes on writing rap music, yoga…WTH?
I remember when getting a driver’s license was a privilege and it still is, it is not a right. When something, anything is viewed as a privilege versus a right, respect is born. Nothing wrong with expecting good, we should… God gives us good things (James 1:17) Good does not come at the expense of others.
Side note: I received this flyer (pic above) in the mail. Obviously I was racially profiled, being that Allen is my last name, a name associated mostly with black people. I got this Democrat lie. It promises $20.00 an hour minimum wage, if you vote DemoCRAP!!!! Yep, and it comes with a mule, too!
Said flyer also talks about evil global warming, boo hiss! And wants to legalize drugs, Pookie will be happy.
