  • The Pu s s y Generation

    I know of a few here that fall into this category rather well!

    Clint Eastwood might have lost a few fans when he had a dialogue with an empty chair. But how much can you fault a man who maintains his beliefs when faced with overwhelming dissent?

    Clint Eastwood has obviously achieved fame and success outside of referring to Obama as an empty chair, and he remains no stranger to controversy. He has opened up about what he calls “the p u s s y generation”. Our generation. And, unfortunately, it’s not because we get a lot of it.

    Eastwood has claimed that society has turned us into pussies. And with the advent of political correctness, this symptom of our generation is plain to see. But he speaks for the majority, not the cream of our generational crop, who have risen above the pedestrian lifestyle to function in the elite category of men.

    “The P u s s y Generation”

    The ***** generation to which he is referring should not be limited to Generation-Y, it’s a collective nomenclature for people born within the last 30 years. The people who attack and harass the 1% for the redistribution of wealth.

    But what the average plebeian can’t comprehend is that these people have worked hard for their money. Nowhere in the great literature of humanity does it dictate the redistribution of wealth. Isn’t that socialism? Communism? And don’t we hate the damn reds?

    There is this intrinsic sense of entitlement . We deserve what we WANT – not even what we need – simply because we’ve graced this world with our presence. And in turn it will bestow its riches. Unfortunately, the world just doesn’t work that way. Entitlement does not yield success.

    None of us really want to work. We want that quick ticket to success and we’ve been babied into believing the real world owes us. We have selective hearing. We only take in what we want. We’ve become delusional idiots. Our generation is wrought with the jealousy of the have-mores. We’re the occupy movement: the complainers, the whiners, the jealous and the weak.

    Instead of actually building our work ethic and dedication, we decide to take the easy way out. To get to the apex of success, you need to sacrifice. And as many people who desire that success, most will never take the risk.

    The disease of the ***** Generation has crept its way into every facet of our existence. In work, it’s less work, more play. They enslave themselves to the axiom: work hard, play harder. This generation does not know hard work. It’s the quick fix approach: Some adderall to cram the night before the exam.

    An old boss once said that lazy people end up doing double the work they would have if they weren’t lazy. And that holds true.

    We live for the now, but demand the fruits of others’ labor, the work they do to reap rewards in the future. I’m all for enjoying life, traveling, meeting people and truly living. That’s what life is about. But we need balance. If we want success, we have to earn it.

    Not take it, not wish for it, receive it, but EARN IT. A fact that has been lost by a generation who stomps its feet and cries if success isn’t immediate. Truthfully I am embarrassed to be grouped with this generation of pussies.

    Call me old-fashioned, but back in the day if you worked your azz off, kept your mouth shut and made something out of nothing, you got what you deserved. We’re a generation that consumes the present and neglects the future. We eat our cake and expect it to be there tomorrow.

    We enjoy what we were paid yesterday and today and we’re *****ed when we’re in our 60s. If we haven’t reached our dreams by the time we’re 30, we dive into a deep depression. We look without, not within. We see others with success, but we fail to see the beauty of the journey we’re on, the sacrifices we’re making that shape the man we become. All we see is what we don’t have, in looking at those who do have.

    Each man is his own man. His path, his own path. To those with the balls to work hard and follow their dreams, I salute you. But stay the course. Success isn’t a birth right. But with hard, purposeful work, it is inevitable.

    The Three Phases of Life

    There are three phases of life and once you understand them, you can realize the path your life will follow. These three phases shape a man and his his destiny and put him in the position he wants in life. They take time, it’s not an overnight thing. Luck is ill-defined in modern culture, it happens when hard work meets opportunity. It’s about being in the right place at the right time, and if you’re not already there, move.

    The Learning Phase 20-25

    Disclaimer: the aforementioned ages are not cemented, but represent the average age in the process. The first phase is the learning phase, because that’s what comprises our young adult lives. This is when we learn how things work in the real world. This is when we absorb, where we perfect our craft, when we become the best at what we do. The rewards are modest, but they get us by.

    This is the step that our ***** generation is currently missing. We feel that our chitty BA in Drama or English makes us brilliant and better than everyone else. We feel our earnings should automatically match our work output. Or, even worse, that our earnings should reflect our sense of entitlement. Ha, boy do they have a rude awakening coming their way.

    I was with a buddy of mine the other day who just finished college, it took him four and a half years, and a lot of money to do so. But nonetheless he got a blue hat with a string and a congratulations, now go ***** yourself from the school. He didn’t even know what a W-9 was or how to even put together a respectable résumé without the words “office b i t c h” under an internship in ‘08. This is America.

    The Earning Phase 25-50

    This is the phase in life where we begin to reap the rewards from our learning phase. This is when we begin to earn some real money. When we can afford a real vacation, a nice car, a home and the presence of a bulgarian escort while sunbathing in the French Riviera.

    The prerequisite, however, is that we busted our asses in the Learning Phase – that’s the only way to the Earning Phase.

    Giving Back 60+

    As we have created our mini (or not so mini) empire, we begin to find the need to give back. Bill Gates does it and so have many others. This isn’t just with specific to money and charity, it’s giving knowledge back and passing down the torch to the next. It’s being a mentor and helping those who are lost in life.

    The three phases in life are in stark contrast to the mindset of the ***** Generation. Success, to them, comes immediately – with or without work. The things, the cars, the houses and the vacations, are all now.

    Are The Three Phases Set In Stone?

    No. Not at all. You might skip them and advance more quickly than others because they understand what it takes earlier than others. There’s always the faster learner in class. It’s all about figuring out the system. Once you know it, then there is nothing that can stop you.

    The Way of The Old School

    Our generation is weak. We’re jealous. We hate hard work, demand what we don’t deserve, and crumble under the weight of the burdens that come with life. Yet there is hope.

    There are many motivated and focused people out there who are putting it all on the line and are ambitious. But they only come in a handful. Odds are, so are you. We train expecting pain, venture into business expecting and ready for years of hardship and hard work with little pay. We know that life is a barter, that we can’t get something great without giving up something greater.

    “Old school” is a term that alludes to toughness both mental and physical. If you look at what previous generations had to go through to just put food on their table, you might realize what hard work is. The tough, strong, old school men of today are outnumbered. We’re drowned out by the whining of the new school, as Clint puts it, “the ***** generation.”

    But that’s fine by us, because to be old school is to be silent. It’s the old school silent warrior. The bite that far outweighs the volume of his roar. The man who understands that loose lips sinks ships.

    Be old school. Don’t whine, complain or wish you were elsewhere. You are where you are for a good reason. What we have and where we are right now is where we deserve to be – good or bad. But this is not where we’re going to end up. Keep pushing. Whatever you want to accomplish in life, whether it be a career, family or general hustle. Focus. Let nothing stand in your way: not even jealousy, laziness or our burning desire to complain.

    The old school simply puts its head down, doesn’t complain, and out hustles those that do. It’s life, it’s simple.

    "“Old school” is a term that alludes to toughness both mental and physical." My wife and I are the only people I know who do not warm up their car in the winter. It is not necessary, wastes tremendous amounts of fuel in the US every day, and increases global warming. EVERYONE I know is part of the "***** generation."

    " Nowhere in the great literature of humanity does it dictate the redistribution of wealth." I had to laugh at that. The writer is obviously not very well read.

        FF, my wife gets up at 4am. and if she wants her chariot warmed up, and the heated seats on high, that's the p u z z y I'm concerned about. Go freeze yer a s s off, I don't care, but your global warming sermon would be utile to a different audience, perhaps.

            Well that's the generation that has to pay hyper-inflated prices for the assets, the social security/medicare deficit (cuz you cold, miserable old cusses are 'entitled') and have to do it on stagnant wages cuz you overspent on several world-wars/entitlements and are too cheap to pay a decent wage. But God forbid the ******'s want to stay warm in the cold. Hell I may not have the money of you old cusses but I am quite happy and my house/car is comfortable most every day of my life.

                Once achieved, the overwhelming majority are opposed to wealth redistribution.

                It is arrogant to think man is going to "save the earth". Where is it going?

                An engine that is -20 Fahrenheit and immediately put under a work load will exhibit premature wear. Your car, not mine. Look for blue smoke by 100,000 miles. Personally, I think a warm up period is important. None of my vehicles ever require added oil between changes. Isn't it environmentally irresponsible to prematurely wear an engine and force it to burn oil?

                  hell, when I go into the gym do I lift 100lb dumb bells just as soon as I get in? I do 25 minutes of cardio before I get pumping.I don't screw up my back and muscles doing the former. FF'er is just plain hardheaded and brainwashed with Al Gore gobbly gook that made him a millionaire fear mongering these very suckers.

                      Ummmmmmmmm,

                      OK, you "young whippersnappers"-

                      Assume someone will have paid enough into medicare to have generated a contribution account at age 65 of about $300,000 if invested at 4% or about $450,000 if it was invested at 6%.

                      Also assume that this same person will have deposited enough into social security by age 66 to have the equivalent of an investment account of about $750,000 at 4% interest or about $1,250,000 invested at 6%.

                      All of the above is an actual at age 58 and projected to age 65 or 66.

                      NOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WRITE (RIGHT) THE RULES THAT YOU WOULD PREFER-


                      In your humble opinions just what benefits should that "miserable old cuss" get back from government in return for the payments?

                      At what age?

                      Should there be a lifetime maximum on medicare costs per patient- then they are on their own?

                      Should any benefits be taxable?

                      Should any benefits be means tested?

                      Keep in mind this same group raised the next generation, worked hard for earned income that was often seemed overtaxed just like your's is, they paid for the education of your generation, they still pay property taxes for schools that their own children are too old to use, etc.

                      Also keep in mind that the only certainty in life is aging until death. It is likely that you will also at some time have expenses for basic needs that will exceed what your income from work allows.

                      With no funding for the elderly- many die younger , many rely on their children (there goes the 2 career family), and/or many rely on charity.

                      It looks like I may have lucked out and won't be relying on someone to change my depends for free. If you erase my benefits, my children have a lot of thinkin' to do. If I need care- my ss/medicare pays for it, my family provides it, or I just simply consume more assets until I die.

                      BTW- a wise man once said- "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it".

                        The answer my dear Jabber is simple... don't build a ponzi scheme of a social net and you don't have this problem to begin with. Its kind of funny that the old people are those most against immigration increases yet those added workers are the only thing that keeps that wheel moving.

                        What do you "deserve" for paying into that system? Not as much as you'll get out. I'll be lucky if I get anything. It'll all come crashing down by then.... so what is "fair" for me to pay?

                        Keep in mind that you are asking me to pay for your retirement AND do all the things that you did... "raised the next generation, worked hard for earned income that was often seemed overtaxed just like your's is, they paid for the education of your generation, they still pay property taxes for schools that their own children are too old to use, etc.".... but all with an upside down pyramid of more retirees than workers while I need to save for my own eventual retirement.... or death.

                        I know how to fix the system but old people don't care. They have that entitled attitude that they complain about from my generation... hmm, now I know where we got it!!!

                          Artful dodger?

                          1 )I didn't "build the Ponzi scheme" a bunch of the political leaders of the grandparents of our existing workers did. Some of those grandparents hated it, some loved it, and some were like me (worked their jobs and payed their taxes while trying to choose the best political leadership we could).
                          2) I also am not anti immigrant. My extended family includes some "recent Americans" that are very good tax paying, hard working, community supporting, law abiding people.
                          3) Do one of those annuity thangs and tell me what my lifetime benefit should be based on the numbers above before you suggest that I will take out more benefits than I earned or paid for. Yep, it is true that as a group those who are my age might actually take more out that they should but I told you to write the new rules.
                          4) How at age 60 am I asking you to do more than I did? After all, I suggest you get to consider the deomographics, the needs of all age groups, and write the new rules here.

                          I am only "entitled" to what I can hold on to after taxes and the benefits that the government actually pays. The retired and the elderly most often do care but they do have a set of problems that I am just starting to become more familiar with.

                          I know full well that with current demographics the system needs fixed. (It pisses my own father off every time I tell him so.) I gave you a chance to write (RIGHT) the rules to get us from where we are to where we need to be. Don't let my opinion get in the way. You and dd put the new rules here.

                          IMHO- one symptom of the true pussies in this ol' world is when each of us take turns tellin' each other about the mess we are in while proposing no realistic or workable remedy. The only way we make the system more sustainable is more taxes- or- less benefits- or a mix of the above. This does not get done until there is a crisis because of what a political hot potato this one is. The problem is really not that tough to solve with the exception of "the politics" of action vs inaction.

                          If you and dd propose the right remedy, I promise you that I will support your opinion.

                          Soooooooo- write (RIGHT) it here.

                            Guys, when I start my MF1100 in the winter with its 15-40 oil, I let it warm up for a few minutes. My Prius, with 0-20 oil, does not have any need for a warm up period before driving gently and slowly for a couple of minutes, and the same goes with my newer PU with 5-20.

                              drdiederich, I'm an "old person" who is not against immigration. Our social net is ABSOLUTELY NOT a Ponzi Scheme. IF nothing is done over the next 20 years, then benefits would be reduced by about 25%. That is nothing at all like a Ponzi Scheme. drdiederich, in a little while, you will likely be surprised to discover that you are 65 years old. You, and your other older neighbors and friends will be glad those regular checks are coming in. Hopefully you won't even need them, but you will know some who will find them to be essential to their well-being. There are few things better than having a generous heart and knowing that one is paying taxes so that others less fortunate have an improved existence.
