SORT BY Relevancy
Join Linda Benyo and Dr. Doug for a lively discussion on the topic of entitlement. We constantly hear these days how we "deserve" many things from spirit, yet we also see, especially in the younger generation, grand expectations that are often not met. We will explore this dichotomy and get to the root issues, as well as discuss how these two things can co-exist.

The United States has a long history of exclusion and entitlement that has affected her citizens since she was controlled by the British Empire. The history of the United States is one for movies. In her history is conquest and control for land, labor, and capital, and she has endured numerous attacks, presidential assainations, depressions, slavery, recessions, racism, sexism, long wars, and more. Today, she is entangled in the same strange institutions of conquer and conquest of the past with the same vigor. Are we witnessing the death of a nation? Or, are we about to see a vigilant and witness a wounded soldier fight to the very end? Who knows? We are going to explore America and herstoried history today. Join Us.
In the United States, we are seeing a surgence of those who feel entitled to free goods and services. Whether it is adults who feel entitled to a cell phone, health insurance and housing to teenagers who expect their parents to pay their way well into adulthood, this mentality does not bode well for the future of our country.
How did we get here and how we can confront the entitlement mentality?
While offering freebies may help some win elections, the irony is that these programs only hurt those they intended to help and they are unstantainable.
The late Margaret Thatcher said it best, "Eventually you run out of other people's money."
Our guest will be Darryl Pettit, Founder of Conservative Junction.
TOPDAY ON THE BRUNCH WE WILL TALK ABOUT Entitlement" A lot of people today depend on Welfare and thats ok to get a lil help but some people think they are Entittleed to Things and take advantage of the ststem . Also our mini topic is FEAR, AND HOW TO BECOME FEARLESS. HOSTED BY INDIA MOREL AND MARTIN C.
Proverbs 28:11 The rich are wise in their own eyes;one who is poor and discerning sees how deluded they are.
Anyone can see their devious behavior. When the wealthy describe "entitlement" programs that benefit the poor and then fight to keep tax breaks for the wealthy and massive subsidies for billion dollar companies they reveal their true hypocrisy.
Ecclesiastes 5:8-10 If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still. The increase from the land is taken by all; the king himself profits from the fields.Whoever loves money never has enough;whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless
These secret networks of the extreme wealthy class is nothing new and neither is the emptiness of their lives.

On this episode, Hot Topics Talk Radio will address two issues on one night.
In the first hour, we will discuss the issues of entitlement. We will not only look at the formal meaning of entitlement, and how it plays in the lives of men and women, but also the parallel of privilege, values and morality, and how it affects relationships.
In the second hour, we will address the question that continues to be on the minds of men and women. We will discuss the elements of who’s supposed to pick up the tab when dating.
One show, two topics, and we’re going in deep with the listeners on this episode. So, you don’t want to miss this one!

Is there a sense of entitlement for parents and students to progress just because its "time"? Are we teaching our children achievement is obtained by just showing up, not putting the work in inorder to achieve. Have we lost the understanding that failure is a part of moving forward, and growing. What happened to the notion falling down 10 getting up 11?
Entitlement comes with hard work.
Do you think society has become a bunch of spoiled entitled brats who want everything but not willing to do anything to earn it!?
