Dear ATS Readers, Writers,
I LOVE this news story... after having been to several graduation gatherings over the years...I find it refreshing and just what most of these
pampered people need to hear.
I was seeing it EVERY year, the speeches, that ONLY inflated the students micro -world of peers and self important people... those who strive to be so
popular, and get the coolest "green" or Politically correct "title" as a student.
They do not realize that 6 weeks after graduation, MANY who were supposedly their best friend will act like they never knew them..etc. Then they MOVE
ON to the newest form of total garbage competition... "SO..WHICH university are YOU attending... I AM attending "X"....!
Like one isnt worth speaking to unless they are in your "league", or attending a higher cost college..
Yet we are inundated with honor roll students who can NOT tell time on a analog clock, let alone FIGURE IT OUT!! Cuz they had everyone figuring it out
for them all their life.. NO CHALLENGES..
Students who head off to college without a CLUE on budgeting money, etc.. they just KNOW they are the greatest gift to mankind since Christ, walked
the Earth...lol.. and their poop dont stink... EVER.
Yes, you've been pampered, cosseted, doted upon, helmeted, bubble-wrapped," McCullough said in his speech. “Yes, capable adults with other
things to do have held you, kissed you, fed you, wiped your mouth, wiped your bottom, trained you, taught you, tutored you, coached you, listened to
you, counseled you, encouraged you, consoled you and encouraged you again. You've been nudged, cajoled, wheedled and implored. You've been feted and
fawned over and called sweetie pie. ... But do not get the idea you're anything special. Because you're not."
What you have are young adults with a huge over inflated sense of self importance, who dont know ANY real skills for the real world in general. Kids
whose world is DESTROYED because so and so "UNFRIENDED" them at Facebook...(Hey it happened to my buddies daughter, just this week..lol)
In general, kids are quite caccooned through life.. over protective parents and the nanny state have created some pretty lame graduates...They can
spout the greenhouse propaganda to the letter, but dont have a clue to check over their car for a road trip so they have a safe journey, or change a
tire, GOD FORBID, thats what TRIPLE A is for, right?
And when I get a job it BETTER BE something other than flipping burgers, cuz I am better than that!
A lot "think" they deserve a 80k/yr job right off the bat! No serving time in the learning and working world..
This is JUST a generalization, but over the years I have seen more and more of these frikkin airheads graduate, and are dumber than a box of rocks
with the smart ones picked out! lol.
Kids need survival skills taught to them.. world survival skills... in the working world... times are going to get brutal for emerging young adults to
try and make a go of life, and be successful..
Granted, that is if there is a world for them to grow old in... as we hurtle towards another global conflict..
NO WONDER THEY ARE MESSED UP... look what "we" gave them?
Kudos to this speaker to the students!! We need more of them.
