For the first time in their lives they experienced loss. They grew up playing "sports" where a score was not kept so that there would be no hurt feelings. Then, to make it worse, they didn't get their participation trophies after the election!

That is possible, but you have to realize how uneducated they have become in the US.

Yeah, a bunch of snowflake sheep, that are free to think exactly as they are told by the MSM, and add to the stupid, the EU is just about to collapse and many are in denial.

I think the problem is a little over 40 years ago around the time of the Apollo mission kids where encouraged to become rocket scientist, engineers, or other occupations which required advanced degrees. Ten years after that was more about trying to either become a engineer or professional in whatever you where go at than merely getting a higher degree, but it was believed that most the best jobs still required an advanced degree. Ten years after that, it more or less was still about focusing on whatever academic or technical field one might be good at, it became more important about getting 'one's feet wet' early than wasting too much time finishing a four to six year degree if academics wasn't your thing. Also at this time (the 90's) the cold war end, the military industrial complex / corporations started their first real downsizing (as well as increasing automation) and it became evident that there wouldn't be as much of a need for the massive work groups as we have seen during the cold war. However at this time education was considered a means (or even a kind of insurance if you will) for kids staying in high school and continuing to college to stay employed and earn higher wages; or at least not see their wages cut.

After the I am a monkey a monky poo poo com boom and then bust, corporations found they still needed skilled workers for IT and other industries but now they started looking for skilled workers elsewhere than the US in order to save cost; even this opened them up for the possibility of companies secrets and know how could be pass on to their competitors in other countries. At the same time kids (as well as their teachers) started realizing that kids in other countries WHERE able to get advance degrees and a degree no longer held the promise of job security and higher as it once did because ALL work could be outsourced and not just the manual ones which was done in the past. Also at this time reality TV and social media created the possibility where someone had a better potential of making as much money as an engineer or professional by either dressing up in a chicken costume, playing a guitar in your underwear, etc when you factor in the downsizing corporations, and weakening of unions in the US. Also at this time we started seeing a shift of need of industrial related jobs to a more service sector/ Micky'D type jobs; as well as a constant process of hiring and firing of most employee's through one's career.

Right now I don't know exactly where it is heading, but in the IT sector they often want people who have 2-4 year degrees, 5-10 years of hands on experience, and several industrial certifications just to get hired for an ENTRY LEVEL position and the pay is not really any better than what one would make if they are a high school dropout and started working at MC Donald's. Also any time a person gets enough experience/seniority to be in a position where they can demand more pay, they immediately start trying to train someone else to eventually take over the position (if there is only one or two people doing it) or just fire the person if there are already several people doing it. In a nutshell there is no real job security or attempts to make 90%-95% percent of the 'serfs' in the workforce feel wanted and/or really needed and the lion share of the best paychecks and perks go to the very few that can display some kind of talents and/or skills that fewer than 9 out of 10 of the population has.

While an education is useful, it is no longer (if it really ever was) a real guarantee/ticket for a better future and kids and parents have to often reconsider their options when taking into account how the money can be used otherwise; and the percentage of kids who will either drop out while going to college and or trying to work their way up from entry level jobs and/or service sector jobs. I may be wrong but the reason many parents treat their children as 'special' little snowflakes that they do is in the hopes that either it when entice them to study and work work harder, develop a social, leadership, con artist skills (ie. emotional intelligence) for them to rise above even if they CAN"T acquire the right educational skill sets to become an engineer or professional, or perhaps just give them a moment in life where they felt a little more special than everyone else when they have to go through the rest of life being a mere peasant like everyone else.

While I was not lucky enough to be a member of the generation that was encouraged to become engineers and scientist, I'm kind of glad to be the one that came after it where focusing on what you are good at and being a professional at whatever you do was important. Even if you were somehow one of the lucky one's to be part of the 5%-10% to eventually be part of the 'special snowflake' class of society.

I don't know what it is but middle school kids and high school kids have trouble with things like understanding 24 hour clocks and military time, but give them a couple weeks in boot camp (with a drill instructor yelling at them) and they start learning it a quite a bit quicker.

While it isn't a given that having someone yelling at you a lot helps in learning any subject, it can help sometimes and having a stricter driving instructor helped me more than when I had one who was laid back. I personally like dealing with military time when I was working since you didn't have to remember whether it PM or AM when the time gets to 12 o'clock; although I don't really like people arguing/yelling at me when I'm trying to learn or do something. But it can sometimes be required while doing critical/important tasks.

Note to a long time friend
gonna take your mind a while to read through it .

~~~~~~~~ Begin Note ~~~~~~~~~~

Some come to an insight , and for some,,,

the insights just come to them ,

Lack of insight , leaves no place to rest , but upon irrational result .

I guess in all Trials , it's those insights that have the cure .

Gawd , where I've needed them so many times in life .


In a Crazy World , where Irrational is the new Norm , I , as you just mentioned ,

am having a struggle to maintain a Happy Balance .

We love to love ,

That is being attacked so much any longer , we are certainly facing a Battle each day .

Makes sense to us to love extending and receiving love , when we witness

our World losing that , it seems so intensely Crazy to us , so hard to make

sense out of .


At this moment , while watching current events , I feel that I'm a Contemporary witness

to the Fall of Rome II , further as I watch people , I seem them , like Nero , self absorbed

while strumming their Fiddle , Fiddle being their Cell Devices they stare into ,

Today's Opiate of the Masses .


The overly self absorbed , are always the most susceptible to the addiction

of their favored escape vehicle .

Care is lacking in them , in that , they engage the Escape without concern

to what effect it may have upon others , or even themselves .


For them , to realize Consequences of their self absorption and escape , never

touches their consciousness , obsessed to punch the button and feel relieved

for that one moment , until the next punch is required in order to take

them flying above the Clouds , where reality cannot be viewed .


Stoic and steadfast upon undulating ground , a Person of this stance , may wish

to depart from the madness , a misfit , they'll ponder to where they themselves

may flee . Flee not from reality of common sense , but flee the Madness around them ,

that makes no sense to them , I've Fled long ago , to where next , is becoming

a huge question any more , My Baby Blues look to the Skies for inspiration ,

I may see it yet .


You and I , we are that .

The few of us who seek some solace , can it be a matter of Geo-physical ,

or does the answer reside in the inner journey , the within to figure out ?


I know I cannot outrun a mass of crazy people , for they keep

making more of them .

soon , the head of a Pin will not be safe from them , no space

will be left to hide in .


I can always self absorb , join them in the madness , but I'd fail the attempt ,

just not built like that .


I question what attributes are present that give meaning to my life , and see

where it differs much from those around me , Misfit indeed , drop my hands

to sides , and move toward just giving up , with the thought , that it may not matter

so much as to warrant the concern .

If that can be achieved , I imagine self absorption will follow .

but have no faith in that happening , as said , just not built like that .


I thought , The mind is a wondrous and powerful thing , perhaps

I tap into it too much and not so many others do ,

then ,,, wait , barometers as such , cannot be properly instituted , not when

my mind , may in fact be,,,, the Crazy that I'm trying to outrun .


tee hee .

guess today , i'm feeling a good babble mode .


Hey , loves and all the Sunshine hugs i can send your way .
