    I couldn’t agree more. Parents just can’t seem to say no to their kids anymore. They have joined the entitlement society. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in a store and watched kits throw fits because they want something and the parents give in. They don’t make their kids work anymore and they don’t discipline anymore. My children have friends that are in shock when they find out my kids have chores and are not allowed to play until they have completed them. There are adults that are floored when they find out that my teens and preteens don’t have cell phones and actually have to earn time on video games and TV. They actually have to earn extra’s too, like extra clothes that are beyond what I would normally provide. Then they are shocked that my kids actually talk to them with respect and use proper grammar. It’s pretty sad that the adults in our society have just come to accept and expect bad behavior from our youth. They think they are doing them a favor when they are actually doing them an injustice. Then they wonder why our country is going to hell in hand basket. I can tell you why. The breakdown of the family and everything that it means. Tear apart the family and you tear apart a nation. It all starts at home in what and how we teach and raise our children.

    @Jackie Are you willing to take all the risks without the payoff? Just the insurance involved in being a doctor or nurse is expensive and then you have to pay for continuing education to keep your license.
    Do you really want to pay for the wages of the guy who flips burgers when he’s making the same wages as a registered nurse? You would pay for it in the the rising cost of the goods you buy. I agree, we do need ditch diggers and we do need people to take those low skill jobs. I took those jobs when I was in high school and college to pay my way. I have also taken those jobs when I have been without work and needed something to get by. There will always be those that need the work and will be willing to take what they can get and use it to get what they need at the time. Hopefully they use it as a stepping stone to something better, but in the end it is their choice what they do with the opportunities given them. It is not and never has been the governments job to supply the citizens of this country with high paying jobs.

    It only makes sense to me that those who put in the effort and money to gain the skills and education that allow them the abilities and access to certain jobs, get paid for their extra effort in making a better life for themselves and their family. Why should someone who flips burgers and didn’t have to fork out thousands of dollars to learn how to do that make as much money as a registered nurse? The way capitalism works, is if you don’t like where you are, change it.

    What speech was he listening to? I am a woman who is struggling to raise her family and I was moved by her speech and I felt like she understands me better then Michelle Obama any day. She seemed more sincere and much less a robot than the current First Lady.
