Sorry, little off topic................yeah, f*ck kids (not literally) and MAKE them go to school and learn how to be adults, rather than thinking they are because of their wallets, cars and pregnant sluts.
Kids get everything too easy and too quick these days.............most music and marketing is directed at them, f*cking cell phones at 10, chugging c*ck at 12..............the list is endless of things they get and do too soon for their tiny little, un-developed emotionally, minds to handle the responsibility and consequences of.
Awesome post bigs!!!
One of the problems with kids these days is that they've seen Law & Order enough to know that adults can't kick their asses without going to jail.
There used to be a farm in my hometown that had all sorts of "Keep Out" "Private Property: Trespassers Will Be Shot" signs around the border. Well, we stupid kids would hop the fence and run across the property on a dare. My buddy ended up getting shot in the thigh via a .410 loaded with rock salt. There were no charges pressed against the farmer. In fact my buddies parents were pissed at their son for doing something so stupid. He had his bike taken away for a month as punishment. He also had to apologize to the farmer... over the phone He told me the rock salt was the most painful thing ever, and I believed him. Needless to say none of us hopped that fence after that incident. Can you imagine the hell that farmer would go through these days for doing something like that?
Beast I used to think like you do. Old enough to go to war yadda yadda. Kids used to have to grow up much much faster than they do now. The whole summers off of school thing was so kids could help out on the farms. Now kids just hang out in malls and act like jerks for the summer. The public schools are garbage now, basically just daycare for parents who "have" to have two incomes, you know because they "need" a new SUV/IPad/3-DTV etc. etc.
OK, I'm ranting, but the whole college basketball to NBA thing does seem to mirror american youth in general. They feel like they are owed something and they feel like they can do/say anything they want without repercussions <--- generalization I know. The NBA doesn't owe anyone anything until they are part of the NBA and they can set the age requirement to whatever they want. I think they should set it higher.
Anyway, make the kids stay in school or make them go to the D-League until they are 21.
