The future is a scary place these days. We live in a world that no longer values hard work. We used to be a country built on hard work. There was a sense of pride in hard work. People built their names on hard labor and honest work. We actually used praise the hardest working people we knew. And we sure as shit used to brag about it. "look what I earned!" were common outbursts I grew up hearing. "Yep, put in 90 hours this week. Still ticking, damn right I'ma drink beer or two and eat some steak!!" Again, common conversation I heard as a child. Because I grew up in a family where people worked. My grandfather's both fought in WWII, then came home to work their asses off, again. One of which worked in a steel mill and eventually "worked" his way to Foreman. Dude was tougher than nails but the most loving and gentle person I ever knew. He killed commies for mommy, ran a steel mill yet was the most God fearing, compassionate man ever. And that's what this world is missing. Hard Fucking Work. Earn your damn hours. Earn your fuckin paycheck. Earn your sleep! Frankly, I'm terrified of this future where there are no men and no one wants to work hard. Everyone wants more money than the effort they contribute. People ask if I miss my grandfathers...Men who fought for their lives and the lives of everyone they loved. Men who came home, started again from the fuckin bottom and clawed their ways to the tops of their industries. Men who fought through the fuckin Great Depression. Fought the second World War. They came home fought more. They didn't beg. They didn't demand shit. There was not such fuckin thing as entitlement. The word didn't owe them. You earn ever fucking inch in this life. You're goddamn right I miss these men. I miss the example of what being a man is that they just innately lived. They knew no other way. And this world is severely lacking.
Bottom line. Work for what the fuck you want. Earn your shit. Respect the hard fucks with stains on their skin, dirty work clothes and smelly work boots. America was built on this shit. Remember what it means to be American, and fucking WORK!! #work #workhard then #workharder #bluecollarwayoflife #dieworking #dieliving # - 23 hours ago
