    Re: Wussification of America

    Yeah man - I'm starting to get nerded out every time I hear the word "Progressive" or "Liberal" anymore. Like this little club of folks whining about the Keystone pipeline all day on their shows, but when Obama starts a new war slaughtering people, they don't say a goddamn thing. I hear alot of lip service given to the drone issue, but none of these shows demand Obama refrain from bombing Iran or killing Syria.

    All I hear is, "Whaaa, whaaa Global Warming." Wuss fest. "Save the rivers", "the trees", "save the oceans," "no fur", "animal rights, don't abuse those KFC chickens!" (seriously there was a KFC protest down the street, I mean fine, if thats your thing) And the gays, gay marriage blah blah, blah. You'd think that half of America was gay, the way everyone goes on and on. And making weed legal is that really the most important thing going, not! A tree, or a river is not a fricken person - okay - so pull your head out, dumbass "Progressives."

    You are. perhaps, familiar with the Stockholm Syndrome? Or with abused wives who keep going back to their husbands?

    Your position that we should let 18 and 19 year old kids, totally at the mercy of their coach and university, decide what an acceptable level of behavior is, is laughable.

    You've got to get away from referring to every situation you don't like with some gay reference. It's bizarre.

    You'll have to ask our conservative friends that. Apparently, in their world, that's how you prove your manhood.

    As for why the wussies?

    1- family life; if a child is coddled and spoiled their entire life, how would you expect them to grow into responsible and self-sufficient adults?

    2- estrogen mimicking chemicals in food containers. Most plastics contain BPA, which mimics estrogen on the body and makes men more feminine and hyper-feminizes women.

    3- education; we are at a point where schools are banning barbaric activities like tag and dodgeball...

    As for fatness, a large factor in the obesity has to do with corn subsidies, and the level of sugar in the average persons diet... It's nearing a point of toxic levels of sugar / carbs that a majority are consuming. Add to that, people can get by with a sedentary lifestyle.

    Add to that that the RDA of most vitamins are ridiculously low. Take vitamin c, the RDA of vitamin c, as example, is at the level that is what is necessary to prevent scurvy (and still people are barely keeping up to that).

    What other factors could come into play?? This is a complex issue afterall...
    Did you read the story I linked in the OP or see the episode of The Five where this was discussed? Bolling didn't say the coach getting fired was an example. This was a talking point which came to mind as a result. This is probably because when I was a kid, some parents used to discipline their kids more harshly than what you saw in this story. Nowadays, a neighbor will report and you'll be charged with abuse if you spank your kids.

    If you don't think they're old enough to identify and speak up about abuse then I propose we raise the legal adult age.

    I mean i get that yelling as a coach at player is okay but abusing them calling them "****ing fagots" etc, and kicking them, hitting them, pushing them, throwing a ball at them. I mean thats not ok. When i played basketball throughout my life/jr high/high school coaches would yell all them time but kicking, hitting them, pushing them thats not ok. Thats called abuse. And if abuse is "how you prove your manhood" these days then count me out of that bull****.

    These end-of-the-world fashions come and go with leftists always always front and center to 'Save the Planet' when they can't even save their neighborhoods, and often their own homes. But 'saving the planet' makes them feel better about themselves and they really don't have to do much else but sit in front of their computers. There'll be another 'crisis' soon enough and the Al Gore types may already preparing for it now.

    Sure its tiresome, but this has been going on for centuries. It's the modern media that gives them the larger platform and presence and their idiocies are more easily, and constantly, replayed. They certainly fall under the category of gullible, poorly informed wusses.
