Who Really is the 'Me' Generation?
By: N. Abesamis  |  November 25, 2012

Below are links which talk about Glen Beck's rants about the younger generation. Quite frankly its all bullshit what Glen Beck is saying. For many reasons. But what frightens me more is some of the positive reactions to it on those sites shown in the links below.

Basically the main gist of their arguments is that the younger generations are all spoiled brats who think they are overly entitled. While this may be true about jobs and such, you do have to earn it and it takes a lot of hard work, they seem to use it as an excuse to deny HEALTHCARE. If there is one thing every person on the planet is entitled to is the right to LIVE. What does winning a soccer game or having a high end job have to do with getting needed medical treatment? Since when is the most successful and the rich and powerful the only ones entitled to being healthy?

All these people talk about the young being lazy, useless and spoiled but that is not necessarily true of all of them. There are many kindhearted, hard working young people out there. Not every young person is a spoiled brat. And to be honest I have seen a lot of adults who are hundreds of times worse.

But what really pisses me off is that all these idiots seem to think that only the most talented and best and brightest are entitled to have any sort of success in life. That only those who are smart enough, always winning and never failing can be successful. Let me tell you something, many untalented people of average intelligence have managed to go on to lead successful lives. It is not about what you have but what you do with it.

In reality though, the most frightening thing about their beliefs, is that things such as compassion and understanding are thrown out the window. Also the idea of making ANY sort of mistake, whether large or small, is considered punishable by death or the utter ruination of one's life both physically and emotionally. Yes actions have consequences, but we ALL make mistakes. That is part of being a human being. We all fail and fall on our faces from time to time. There is no such thing as a perfect human being.

And out of all honesty how can the younger generation take care of the older generation if they cannot take care of THEMSELVES? It works both ways. If the younger generation is so in debt because of school university loans and medical bills and such how are they to pay for the older generations' medical bills.

So you can tell me about being successful and having to work your asses off to get where you got. But don't come crying to me when you get cancer and suddenly all of your hard fought savings go down the drain because of your expensive medical bills. You reap what you sow.
