Mainly, there're a lot of freeloaders and crime is higher than ever and kids are on their iphones more than they're reading their textbooks. This is
why entitlements have to stop.
Reward people on merits and help those who show initiative. The rest? Don't hand hold them. The best way to learn for some people is the hard way.
That's the way nature intended.
Some kids hate school. It's better to just get them going on a low wage job. But the problem is you can't pay em lower than minimum wage which limits
employment in the US. To make matters worse, there're a multitude of regulations and requirements that businesses have to abide by.
A lot of the ADHD people are just people in the past who would have worked lower-skill jobs that don't require a big education. But nowadays they're
pampered and put through school.
Of course there're the poor minorities that blame everybody except themselves. I don't know what the numbers are, but I think it's something like
30-50+ million (poor) minorities. I think the good bulk of them are hard working and good students, but some aren't. Good and bad apples.
When my finnish grandfather came into this country, he had minimal schooling. He was about 19. He didn't even know how to speak our language. He
learned over time, but was always surfing the line between poverty and just getting by. Just like mexican (even illegal) immigrants. I see them a lot
in the canneries. I see nothing wrong with it. The jobs suck, though. It's not bad if you can handle 12+ hours per day, 6 days per week, for several
months. Problem is some of the workers don't speak english, yet. At one cannery I worked at, none of my coworkers spoke english. But you know what? I
don't care. My grandfather worked in an environment where english wasn't required.
I'll tell you, though, immigrants are some of the most hard working people in existence. I would be looking at the 2nd/3rd generation kids of hte
immigrants that feel entitled. But the first generation are the kind of people that're like pioneers. They're good workers with lots of willpower.
First generation immigrant knows what they're gaining and appreciate it.
