All I'm saying is.
And love you guys all I'm saying is.
We can bring it up like Tony Bennett love it off some thought he had some great people but but c'mon we can do better than Enrique Iglesias tonight time.
Not trucking out.
Tonight I'm blanking gonna say that on the ship.
Hit another coach who are luring them Enrique Iglesias who knew who -- little.
How to go from.
All the girls I've -- before his father to.
I want to.
Wind -- and is that is that really good trajectory for our culture now how I.
And I don't believe for a moment that you love those guys over there by the way out now I'm little I know I've got a lot of that this is I think a lot of the elites -- They don't want this stuff for their kids.
But in their professional lives you know they don't hang in Chile with three on not -- -- -- god -- because they have huge numbers and sales.
They did -- don't realize it but they don't want these.
If they don't and then he and his judgments about behavior as you do.
And I read your book and is very entertaining and people should take a look at it.
Now I should read it because it's hilarious but it's serious at the same time with the -- this pain that we're all and you of the original culture where our warrior and as you're on a boat and -- culture warrior -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Deuterium and very quickly and I and I'll just sit of these Shiite former on the former lifeguard what -- safety instructor -- go to the beach a lot.
And I see thirteen fourteen year old girls with these giant tattoos on their back and I'm going -- stamps they'll get going don't know what what is wrong with their parents I mean I didn't I mean not not a little tattoo now giant.
-- -- -- -- Parents today see that I say all the Laura bill look where our children herself actual I think we're just.
-- hang themselves giving themselves -- in your judgment really is is not helpful to their development that's the message the predominant culture is saying and I say.
We all know that let's say your fifteen to fifteen years old your your about a guy and you put it it's about eagle on your arm.
By the timer 55 years old that's gonna look like a seagull with cancer had nothing is gonna have fallen and look terrible at least aesthetically at all.
Are inherently trust adolescence and teenage to make judgments about their bodies were big trouble not about smoking that they are not why you have parents to make those judgment Q 25 you wanna get any light.
America get an -- One of the things that I feel it has deteriorated has led to the deterioration of the culture is the sense of entitlement.
So this -- this -- them.
That is really taking over.
What is the root of that I think it's parents who don't want apparent they really do wanna be friends with their kids and they wanna be the cool hip.
Al-Qaeda housewives of ex city on the lot more than that no wait a minute this is that this is what they -- they it in situations where kids.
Let's -- -- music that musical tastes.
Parents it's easier to say okay kids are gonna be kids all the kids are listening to -- on his -- and now.
I can't all the kids are listening to Obama -- cash app -- get sleazy -- decided Johns beats him in Vegas hottest selling tour this summer.
Get sleazy her previous hit called blow okay.
Parents have to be parents and they don't do that kids feel like they can do it always had derelict parents in this country not a whole way as to -- sorts -- -- but did but here's the difference.
My mother and father did not have a sense of entitlement out.
Okay because they went through the depression World War II easy -- sacrificed.
Was what now -- -- Obama is it not to make this little -- -- book is not political on this talk about sacrifice today.
Take -- -- out of the sacrifice today is how much -- you Armani.
Are you willing to give to the wet stuff out of the -- -- mean the baby boomers my generation we have an awful strong sense of entitlement.
But not nearly what the younger generation they think they're entitled.
To our money.
They think they're entitled to special treatment where does that -- well it comes from it starts at the beginning bill like domino momma cat three young children are -- under the age sex -- so I I fell into this whole situation.

Think yeah yeah some -- comes from parents who passed down attitude and it mostly generated.
The Jenner and you say that it's all parenting but I think it's media driven to a lot of -- because a lot -- and they see people the younger people on the Internet and on television and in a radio also.
