Plueezz, are you kidding me? The other day I said to a 47 year old woman, why pay someone to rip out your carpet? Save your money, get some pliers,
rip the carpet out, get a knife, cut it in strips and take it to the curb. It's such an easy job.
She looked at me like I was from the back side of the Moon. She informed me that she had asthma and couldn't rip out any carpet(I've noticed that
just about everybody has asthma now), she didn't know what pliers were, and didn't own a knife that was going to be cutting any dirty carpet.
I told her to have her kids do the job. Again, an incredulous look.
So, you think kids, the majority of whom are raised by barely competent, do-nothing, know-nothing wimpy adults are going to go out and seize land and
farm it? Who taught them what a shovel is? Seeds? Chickens?? Rainfall? Parasite control?
I can just imagine tossing your average 18 year old a live chicken and telling him that's dinner, so get to work!
Seize land? Not my land. They can WORK on my land for food if we get to Great Depression levels, but they are going to get a load of lead when they
try shooting at me to take what I worked for.
The next few years should be a time for the rare, bright, and motivated person to excel. Time will tell.
