Having a SUV, big screen and 75 average degree comfy home? That's what they understand.

Yikes. That's way too hot for me.


Well, my point was that as long as people (not just liberals btw) have their creature comforts, things like faith, character, honor etc.. seem to be a thing of the past now that we are in the 21st century.

We are sacrificing security and freedom for material things. The 'entitlement mentality' amonst the democrats is obvious. But let's face it. It is alive and well in Republicans as well. Look at the average 'conservative' household. There precious sons and daughter's are driving nice, new cars provided by 'daddy' when they turn 16. You know most of them are not working jobs.

I've battled this with all 3 of my kids. They see what other's get and they resented me for requiring them to get jobs and help pay for their own transportation needs. DS got over it quickly. DD#1 never has. DD#2 is now a senior and is just a 'bear' about it. No wonder when every single girl on her volleyball team was giving a car by their parents or grandparants. One recieved a brand new Mercedes sports car on her 16th. Another got a new Chevy Camero.

I find that obnoxious. Even if you are rich, you are a moron for buying your 16 yo a 100k car.

I'm a relic of the past and I know it. But like I said, I won't go done without a fight.
