Wow!! You came in 2nd? Really? That means that you were the 1st person to lose...Congratulations..Loser...
What about who lost the last NBA championship? The last Superbowl? The last World Series?
Does anyone care who comes in second? Does second place even mean anything?
Why would anyone even want to be known as the runner-up? Or instead of being a Grammy or Academy Award WINNER..you are a nominee? Really? Does that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Like you accomplished something?
I ask these questions because I was told recently that during a field day at the local elementary school...every participate got a medal whether they won or not. It is supposed to show that winning is not the only thing..It was supposed to show that win or lose we are all special.
But that does not mean that we teach our children to settle for 2nd place just because it makes them feel good. Losing is part of life..this is true. But if a person goes through life just going along to get along....
This is that bullshit son.
We should teach our kids to be the best they can be at everything they do. We should teach them to go into every situation knowing that they can win..not hoping that they win.
Where is the drive and ambition?
We are raising a nation of bitches. We are raising a nation of kids that think that it is OK to come in 2nd. Or 3rd. We are raising a nation of kids that expect to be given shit even if there was no work involved. We are raising a nation of kids that think that it is OK to sit at a campfire and sing kumbaya holding hands with somebody that needs the shit kicked out of them. When I was in school, a bully got his ass beat. We did not run home and jump off a damn roof just because we got our lunch money taken. We fought back. We stood up. We may have gotten beat up..but we took that ass whooping and fought the next day..And the next day.. and the next.. until we WON.
We have a bunch of 2nd place, C student, entitled ass bitches.
Yeah I said it.
