SORT BY Relevancy
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.
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.
In the first edition of the recovery radio podcast for 2014, Host David Gerber speaks with St. Christopher's Inn staff member Michael Boccia about a Arrogance and Entitlement Issues in Recovery. Together, they explore the origins of these character defects, and ways in which the staff at St. Christopher's Inn addresses the issue.
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!?

Bee's opinion! Equal opportunity has not arrived for all America. For centuries, America's rich, free White males purposely excluded all others groups. As time passed, other groups were provided some opportunity at the will and wave of the wand of America's rich, free White males. The wand of opportunity for Black Americans has been slow and next to none in its wave.
When America use laziness as cause for Blacks in poverty, America shows lack of knowledge of America's history. The rich free White male purchased Africans for economic reasons. The Slave industry was founded or should I say the slave industry was born, and the workers were chattel. Blacks were bought and sold to work, breeded like cattle to work, beat to submit and work more, and killed at the wave of the wand with no protection under the US laws.
Employment Opportunity for Blacks was solely at the will of the rich White male until the early 1960's. Even today poverty stats suspiciously reeks of racial discrimination. Highest rates of poverty in 2012 US, 35% Black; 34% Hispanic; 12% Asian, 9% White; A lot of poverty is contributed to slave wages.
2010 census data show racial demographics for US is 64% White; 16% Hispanic; 12% Black; 5% Asian; 1% American Indian and Alaska Native 2% two or more races. When I hear equal opportunity is racial entitlement, I can only think the speaker feels the rich free White male had the right idea when Black males were 3/4 human and Black women and children were disposable flesh.
Perpetuation of racial entitlement? Thus says the judge of the Supreme Court Of The United States. Time for leaders to participate in some good old American word games. Clarification of what words mean to them vs meaning in today's society.
Jeopardy categories: Racial Entitlement; Binders of Women; 47% living off free stuff; Children and grandchildren won't have the same freedom and opportunities you enjoy;
Supreme court decisions are not to be political judgments being imposed on the masses. Eat the broccoli decisions? Judges pillow talk decisions?
Success is not an entitlement. It’s not a right or a claim that we should have. Yes, people have the right to pursue success, but that’s it. Success is most often earned, not handed over because you are entitled. If being successful were that easy, everyone would have the success he thinks he deserves. I think I was in my thirties before I truly understood and internalized that idea.
The secret to success without hard work is still a secret.
The mindset is also a big Key to your success and the success of your life.
