Respect....

why is it that it is so easy to be so disrespectful these days? I mean if someone is being outright disrespectful in the media or where ever, they shrug it off as freedom of speech? Hell I get the freedom of speech thing...I mean that is why I can write this blog, because it is freedom of speech....but when did it become OK for people to be rude or obnoxious and if they are called on it they say "freedom of speech" Sure you are free to say what you want, but didn't your parents teach you how to have a little snippet of respect for other people? or did they just go about teaching their kids to just be rude and obnoxious because it is "freedom of speech" in this country?

It continually amazes me that some adults today still act like teenagers! Have no respect for history or heritage or anything of that nature, they are of the thought *I* deserve this and *I* deserve that....but yet are unwilling to work for it! but man when things do not go their way....they are the FIRST to bitch about it!! The sense of entitlement is amazing....where did the ethic go of work for what you want...

I know this is a "doesn't make much sense" blog, but I just had to get it out of my head! LOL then maybe now I will have more space to fill it with other things that make me go hmmm...

You make sense to me girlfriend... there are too many people wandering around with an unfounded sense of entitlement...

I agree when did we as a society become the "I deserve it, just because." My kids think that they should get whatever just because. My husband thinks that if his friends or co workers get something so should he. Why can't we just be happy with what we have and not need everything outside of our reach to be happy?

It makes total sense Wendi... manners, kindness and respect seem to matter too little to too many people.

I think you're on to something. I agree with you 100%. People have become quite disrespectful and excuse it. It's not okay.
