Shifting attitudes and what's wrong with America

Here are three prevailing attitudes today that are bringing down America:

"WE HAVE TO HAVE DIVERSITY."
For example, whenever a new president is elected, it's now commonly expected that he must have a "diverse" cabinet. I've heard people say the cabinet should "look like America." Gotta have a black here, a latino here, an asian here, maybe a fruitbooty there, etc." To me, that is just stupid and reeks of tokenism. We should simply be focusing on bringing in the very best, regardless of race or gender or whatever. We are doing ourselves a disservice by selecting our leaders based on "diversity" rather than quality. If you had to put together the very best basketball team in order to face a team of martians - with the fate of the world in the balance - are you going to choose the best players, or will you make sure you have one asian, one female, one hindu, etc.?

"WE ARE VICTIMS"
Somewhere along the line, Americans have developed a loser's mentality where "personal responsibility" goes out the window, replaced by a culture of victimization. Blacks blame their troubles on slavery, which happened generations ago. How many times have we heard people say, "I'm a criminal because my daddy didn't love me" or "I'm fat because my parents never gave me attention when I was a kid"? We need to get tougher. We need to start taking responsibility for our own problems and stop blaming others.

The Eagles once had a song called, "Get Over It." The lyrics:

I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat
Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it
You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if they gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
You don't want to work; you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing
Get over it
Get over it
If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it!


"BIG GOVERNMENT IS GOOD"
With every passing generation, we are getting weaker in spirit, mind and body. The more we allow government to "care" for us, the more reliant on it we become. And the more lazy we become. America was built on individual greatness, not a bunch of feeble folk who want government to do everything for them.

Do you agree? Smiley

So in other words, you could have just saved your gas money and not have voted for Trump

And voted for Trump in a state that was going Hillary Clinton anyway?

But she did Wink Roll Eyes

Talking about a lame OP? Shocked Roll Eyes Grin

Agree with you. The diversity part has always been part of America. The issue now is we seem to go out of our way to celebrate star wars bar style diversity.

Victims do exist, and have a right to complain.  What's objectionable is FALSE claims of victimhood.

As for "diversity", in the US that's merely a leftwing code word for anti white male discrimination.  "Diversity" has been a historic source of conflict and centrifugal forces in society - e.g., almost any middle east country, the Balkans, India, Russia, increasingly Europe --- and America.

No argument there. False representations rarely work out well.

Big argument there. You're wrong when you say the Left is dedicated to discriminating against white males. In fact, your claim in that sentence puts you squarely in the definition of someone who makes false claims of victimhood.

You are also wrong when you say diversity weakens nations. In fact, diversity is a large part of what has made America great. Adolf Hitler once opined that he wasn't worried about the United States as an enemy because he figured we are weak, because, in his words, we are "a mongrel nation".

I guess he found out otherwise, the hard way, didn't he?

Maybe some day you'll realize that also.

Bollocks.

It’s not diversity that causes problems in the Balkans etc it’s moronic tribalism.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
