Random Thought: The Entitlement Clause

Do you ever realize how insanely entitled we've become as a society? It borders on ridiculous sometimes, in fact scratch that. It is outright stupid.

I have two children, one husband, 3 pets and too many bills-none of which happened to me. They are my responsibilities, and mine alone. If Hannah Montana wants to pose buck naked (I just love the way that sounds.) on the hood of a car that Mel Gibson is driving drunk while racing Lindsay Lohan to the Amy Winehouse concert where she forgets the lyrics because she is distracted by Janet Jackson's exposed nipple, that is absolutely fine by me. In fact if I weren't home being a role model to my children I might have the Favorite guy rev up the Nissan and head out to see it all go down. These people are entertainers (term used loosely), they are not role models, substitute parents or leaders of the new revolution. Why can't people accept this? They are no more responsible for rearing your children than you are for naked moonwalking for my viewing pleasure.

I'm going to implode eventually from the incessant annoyance of hearing people complain about a very dead Walt Disney and how his billion dollar opt-in empire is corrupting toddlers, 'tweens, teens and terriers all across America. Get off the phone with Gertrude and watch your kids! The television is not a babysitter and quite frankly after several hours of Mid-East oil war propaganda I enjoy the superficiality of teens, 'tweens and the perils of their hormonally induced pubescent frustrations. If only real life were as simple as a pimple, padded bra and a mid-daydream boner.

Arthur teases, Caillou is rude, Zoe 101 missed Bio 101 and is knocked up (Has that been confirmed?) Bert and Ernie, well you know I hear they're getting married now; it's legal. There are also naked, yup real live naked people running around on the National Geographic channel and animals fornicating on the Discovery channel! Can you believe it?! I gotta keep my kids, cats and cavy far from all of this impropriety before they turn out-well..."Lean in so I can tell you in your ear..." Whispers, "Normal". Trust me, I heard it on Etsy. Convo me and I'll tell you how to join the "I'm Entitled to a Perfect World Road Coalition", no street teams here, that's way too urban for our tastes.

I'm entitled to think you're all pretty silly; irritating as antibiotic resistant staph boils-but amusing nonetheless. What do you think is pretty silly today?

i think I've declared my undying affection for you before, right?

in case I haven't- well - in the words of my dearest friend:

I adore you more than I adore ice cream on a 90 degree day. :-)

carry on...oh wise one.

I couldn't agree with you more..Instead of people taking their responsibility seriously, easy to blame Hanna Montana, etc...

You're preaching to the choir :)
I think it's pretty silly to day that Tim Russert dies and (no disrespect to him) the media suddenly has nothing but good things to say about him...so it's really the media's ego that I think is silly here. If you know what I mean ;)
