Entitlement

A mindset of entitlement seems to pervade this nation. The jerk in the Lexus swerving in and out of traffic totally oblivious to the safety of those around him; the panhandler and average welfare recipient who’d rather live off the handouts of others than work for a living; the unskilled burger flipper who thinks he should receive a higher minimum wage, all because he knows nothing about sacrifice and saving but still wants the finer things in life; those demanding free higher education and instant unearned respect… I see them everywhere and to be completely honest, it’s disgusting… People need to realize that the world owes them absolutely nothing. Society owes them nothing. The only thing anyone is owed is an opportunity to excel with the cards they’ve been dealt in life. If you choose to squander your skills and the opportunities life gives you, you have only yourself to blame.
