PAWN STARS’ Rick Harrison Went Live: Bashed Obama, The Left And Put The Participation Trophy Generation To Bed..
We live in a world now where it seems everyone gets an award for everything.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with rewarding people; but when you get to the point where when it seems everyone is getting rewarded no matter what your level o achievement it gets a little bit much.
It brings along a sense of sickening entitlement where kids growing up today feel like they have never lost. You’ve seen what happens to boxers for example that have undefeated records that suddenly lose a fight. It crushes their entire world for a while.
They don’t know how to function becuase they thought they were always going to get a pat on the back for a job well done.
Look at the honor roll in school. To get on the honor roll in school when I was going to school and when my son was going to school your grades had to be so good that it was almost an accident if you made it on that thing.
Now, if you aren’t on the honor roll it’s an accident because they aren’t even giving kids the tools to cope with losing; which is going to happen to everyone at some point.
Look at Michael Jordan for example. One of the greatest basketball players of all time, and this is not a fact that could possibly be in dispute. The first basketball team that he tried out for when he was in school he didn’t make the team. He wasn’t good enough by the terms of what it takes to be good enough to be on a basketball team.
So what did he do? He improved himself, he worked his butt off and the next time the turn came around he made the team and now he sells us shoes and underwear.
Had Michael Jordan been of the same age a couple of decades later twenty tears from now he would still be selling us shoes and underwear but it would be in some big box store as the assistant manager because the coach of the first team he tried out for would have been pressured into letting him on the team lest he cry on the car ride home for five minutes.
Kids aren’t being allowed to experience what it’s like to lose, and that is a very dangerous precedent to set.
The iconic Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars” made an appearance on Mark Levin’ show on Fox News this past weekend.
During his visit on the show, Harrison explained that he doesn’t agree with the “participation trophy” generation, and he explained his stance on the liberal move toward socialism in recent months.
“We’re raising an entire generation that gets a participation trophy?” Harrison explained to the host of “Life, Liberty & Levin.”
60-year-old Levin then questioned 53-year-old Harrison about those people in their own generation who agree with the participation trophy stance.
“I mean, Chuck Schumer, he’s our generation, Nancy Pelosi, she’s a generation beyond, but you get the point,” Levin explained.
“I truly believe that if you’re older and you’re educated and you’re touting socialism, you’re either not that intelligent or you’re evil. It comes down to that,” Harrison stated.
“Power hungry, maybe?” Levin answered.

The “Pawn Stars” host agreed, “Which, power hungry is basically ‘evil’ in most situations. And they’re completely intellectually dishonest.”
It’s interesting how the participation trophy represents the Democratic Party’s clear move towards a more socialist agenda.
Millennials who have racked up college debt seem to be fond of the idea that they shouldn’t have to pay for anything. They can’t seem to grasp why health insurance costs so much. Instead of placing blame on Obamacare, they blame the Trump administration.
