Entitlement’s

Choices of and by an individual(s), lacks accountability in America because the expectation(s) of an entitlement mentality has replaced hard work and effort; as if one deserves something because he or she simply exist.  A person exists and is entitled to benefits, regardless of how he or she came to be?

However, others exist privileged to those identical entitlements…has to work and provide their own entitlements, but those of others?  Wow!  Who determines who is and is not entitled?  Who could ever define those entitlements?  Who is to say the value of an arbitrary entitlement is enough, another person?  How does one know they are superior and capable of determining such decisions for other men?  Did the person know it at birth?  When does a person become enlightened and know they are superior…do they have a sputnik moment, HA!

  • “Listen to the rabble outside.  Listen, to the fear.  I will use that as a weapon, to control them, and then the world.”  – Lord Blackstone in Sherlock Holmes
  • “LIFE IS NOT HAVING AND GETTING, BUT BEING AND BECOMING.” (Matthew Arnold)
  • “MAN IS NOT THE CREATURE OF CIRCUMSTANCES; CIRCUMSTANCES ARE THE CREATURES OF MEN”
  • “WHAT YOU BECOME IS WHAT YOU ARE NOW, WHAT YOU ARE TOMORROW IS WHAT YOU DECIDE TO DO TODAY”
  • “EVERY HUMAN IS INTENDED TO HAVE CHARACTER, TO BE WHAT NO OTHER IS AND DO WHAT NO OTHER CAN DO”
  • “ONE WHO FEARS LIMITS HIS ACTIVITIES.  Faiure IS ONLY THE OPPORTUNITY TO MORE INTELLIGENTLY BEGIN AGAIN.”  (Henry Ford)
  • “The angel that presided o’er my birth said, Little creature, form’d of joy & mirth, go without the help of anything on earth.”  (William Blake)
  • “Our greatest glory consists not in failing, but in the rising every time we fall.”  (Oliver Goldsmith)
  • “BEFORE, asking others to have high standards or to make sacrifices; do it yourself ye hypocrite.”  (Larry McKibbon)
  • “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”  – Vince Lombardi

The entitlement mentality is a disease.  You may or may not be a sports fan; however, you are aware college scholarships are awarded academically and for sports.  Every year students cheat the system either stealing, accepting, or making money that is not in accordance with NCAA rules.  The pundits clamor about whether the athletes should or not receive pay.  Many athletes complain of the colossal sums of money via television contracts.  The athlete thinks he should have a piece of the pie because without him/her the College would not receive the funds.  If this is true, should the amount be $800, $1000 or perhaps more per year.  Do you pay the “Star” athlete more?  Wait a COLA would probably be expected each year because of inflation?  Surely, the athlete would not expect more money (like the Pro’s).  Nah, I doubt the athletes would need a union (like the Pro’s).  I doubt football players would demand additional money not provided to the track team…would they?  The housing, tuition, books and meals are not worthy of mention because of the minor expense…LOL.

Has anyone who is provided a stipend, wage, or remuneration ever wanted more?  Have you ever been disappointed by your annual raise?  Ever ponder whether the increase failed to adequately compensate you for your efforts?  Are you entitled to more?  Who could ever determine when enough is enough?  Are you the owner of the business?  Did you take the risk, borrow money, work 24/7 to market, design, plan, and implement…the business?  Are you irreplaceable?  No.

Entitlements are evil and inherently a socialist mentality.

Politicians say they’re beefing up our economy.  Most don’t know beef from pork.  ~Harold Lowman

The government is not responsible for you; you are responsible for “yourself.” “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”…
