I didn't realize there were people still living in caves. The younger generation is more
giving and caring? When did that happen? Most of them are very good but the young
by and large even have their parents and grandparents going to job interviews with them.
Have you watched the generous young folks in traffic? They drive like they are possessed
with no regard for anyone. Many are self centered and believe they should start at the
top wage immediately out of post secondary, experience or not.
Yes the people who built this country are entitled to something, to start with its called
respect. In addition there are those who went overseas and fought the wars people cheer
about winning. Or they had to fight for years for a pension because the were merchant
marines that were not entitled to the same advantages as other soldier, sailors and airmen.
there is a long list of people put their lives on the line.
In addition there are those who worked the factories and mining sights when health and
safety regulations were not as they are today. Oh and they fought for those work place
benefits that so many younger people enjoy today. Those benefits didn't come because
governments and business people were nice folks, they were won at bargaining tables and
on picket lines. Today they are considered common benefits, without one shred of history
as to how they came about.
And finally while some are whining about all the mistreatment they being handed I don't
hear too many complaining about the money, jewellery, property, and other valuables they
will be getting when the old folks are gone. There is two sides to this, those who actually
worked for the benefits deserve some rewards, and those who have not yet earned their
place in the sun should stop bitching and get to work. creating a better place for their kids
and grand kids.
