Re: Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our

Admittedly, I'm taking care of my nephews (wife's side) in which it's just too much fighting/trouble to raise them the way I think they should be. She throws a fit when I suggest removing their ipads and any other sort of BS that is influencing and screwing up their lives, IMO. Electronics/social media/addictive websites that people post in order to gain 'points' are all destructive to the creative thinking skills of young people.
When I was their age, I was working on bicycles, motorcycles, my VW bug, etc.. I learned how to DO THINGS. I took shop class, mechanical and diesel mechanics. I rebuilt engines. I also hunted w/ my BB gun, cleaned all my game, and helped my Mom cook it up. I've certainly have plenty of land/sea game hunting, too. My nephews just don't seem interested. I don't live in a big city, but do live in a very slightly urban area...which adds to to the problem. I've often thought about moving to the country whereby they would be forced to participate but then again they might just sit around on their ipads (which I hate).
IMO, this crap is making them useless in a lot of respects. I do have one nephew that has listened to me and is making an above 4.0 average and is genuinely getting it...but he is the one that has also genuinely listened to me when I talk about this stuff. I think he'll succeed. I'm not sure about the others who don't seem to be concerned...even though I try to talk to them about it. They don't understand that they've been undereducated common core screwed and that there aren't any jobs out there for such. It's a tough position.
It's tough trying to guide them in a world so depleted of such opportunities when all they think about is their status on social media. Soooooo F'd up.

At some point you will realize that you have to wear "the pants of the household" not your wife. It's tough, but what is at stake? Lives? Or is being non confrontation with her more important?

When she throws a fit, that means she does not want to manage them. No cable only videos and games, arranged viewing at decided times. Encourage outdoor behavior, make it fun engage, that encludes your wife.
It might take awhile, I know, been there done that.
Not trying to be a Dick, just think about it.

I know you're not trying to be a dick. Looking from the outside, based only upon those few words, I'd feel the same way. It's just that there is SO much more than just that.

I took the wife and youngest son yesterday to the Sailboat.After I did my thing we went to an outlet mall and the went to our jeweler to get my wifes ring
Shopping is torture for me but we did a little of everything together.
My youngest likes the video games but prefers outdoor stuff.He is in Florida today so I'm sure Ill get lots of fish pics in the next few days.
We are getting a nation of obese,lazy,brain dead zombies if we don't do something.

Give them each a 22, have them go out and shoot 4 squirrels, return when complete, send wife to mall, clean and prep together, cut into small pieces, add onion, parsley, cumin or other spice, salt pepper, add to large pot, simmer for 3 hours, cook wild rice, serve together, eat.
Once they figure shit they shoot tastes good....priceless!
Note. I did this with two girls, 9 and 12, it was doves but the result was the same. They now can out shoot any sporting clay "old pro" any time!

Hmmm....not a bad idea. My pops used to drive us around and I'd knock doves off the power lines w/ my Crossman 760. We'd have a pile of dove breasts in no time. My mom would pressure cook them up w/ a gravy over wild rice. Damned delicious!

Re: Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our

They have TARD

Trump Acceptance resistance Disorder is real. TARD is affecting millions of Americans and their quality of life.

Signs and symptoms include delusions, paranoia, crying, sensitivity to phrases like MAGA, rage, suicide and generalized butt hurt.

Those affected usually make wild, farcical claims or have grandiose plans that may include

Moving to Canada
Overturning or banning the electoral college
Calls for "someone" to do "something".

Risk factors for TARD include:
Democratic Party membership
Being a hipster
Wearing skinny jeans
Being pro abortion
Massive student debt
Being enrolled in college
Having a degree in liberal arts
Previous diagnosis of Bush Derangement Syndrome

The only know treatment is repeated and constant exposure to reality. This is inherently dangerous for the provider however as those with TARD are often prone to fits of violence.

Suicide Hotlines Get Record Number Of Calls After Trump Win: "Phones Have Been Ringing Off The Hook"

How stupid does one need to be? I'm sorry, not necessarily stupid, but just brainwashed/blinded by the MSM. D

Hotline....Hello, this is suicide hotline.

Caller.....Trump is a racist pig and a.......

Hotline.....OK, well now, recognising that you are a pussy and most likely dont own a gun, I would recommend mass amounts of Drano and please drink it as quickly as possible to prevent more tears.
