A Nation Of Wussies


I just read an article about the decision of an elementary school in Colorado Springs, Colorado to ban tag. It seems that some of the children felt harassed and were chased against their will. My guess is a couple of fat, lazy, addicted to video games, junk food eating, weaned on freakin' Oprah, couch potatoes had to get up off their lazy asses and actually get some damned exercise. They were probably so traumatized by this tragic forced aerobic activity that they blurted out the whole event while choking down Oreo's in the back of their obese mommies SUV's. If the truth be told these chubby little bastards were most likely pissed because they got tagged right off the fucking bat and then spent the rest of recess wheezing like an eighty year old with a two pack a day habit since they couldn't catch a damn cold in a fucking blizzard.


OMG, first dodgeball gets the black eye and now freakin' tag. What the fuck is next; will they outlaw jump rope for it's connotation of bondage from the rope; will hopscotch face the axe due to teaching graffiti skills, when marking the boxes. When will the wussifacation of America end? When all children are taught to be a bunch of fat, whiny, sue happy, political correct, morons?


Stories like this, are becoming far too commonplace. The Morons are taking over and it damn sure ain't pretty.

It's the Mommies and Daddies who don't want their precious darlings to possibly get a boo boo that is driving this crap. And then there is the PC crowd who want us all to feel valued. Buncha crap.

This is madness! I have a sentence in my new post on the same topic: "There are those who value people’s “right” not to be offended more than people’s need to learn … and those who value fostering achievement more than making everyone feel good about themselves."

It's time to rescue our schools from the feel-good police.

This is bullshit. I know it's my generation that's raising these kids to be a bunch of pussy's, but WTF?!?! If the parents don't want their kids playing these games, let them write them out of gym. Then when they get picked on for not playing with everyone else, they'll be begging to go back.

I hate people.

Tag is banned? It's a game for crying out loud! I think those Desperate Housewives have entirely too much on their hands. These picketing Moms need to get a life.

eZ said...

oh fuck fuzz yer killin me, I hated gym class, I think being the last one picked for team games made me a mental case-haha-, and what will the bitches brew about next, The Hokey Pokey?

ozymandiaz said...

Get them kids some Little Rascle scooters. That way they won't feel torchered having to waddle between classes. At least they have the PGA to look forward to...

Red said...

Dodgeball was nixed? They still play it at my kid's school. And now tag, huh? *shakes head* What a shame ..

Phats said...

Jesus! Who the hell outlaws tag. Tag and Kickball were the best playground activities ever! We would play freeze tag, or freezeball tag. Man that sucks

jane said...

This stuff just pisses me off! You know, when we'd play dodgeball, if you didn't want to get hit by the ball, you learned to get the fuck out of the way, ie...DODGE THE BALL!

According to these morons, no "game" will ever be pc enough, cuz there are always winners and losers in them & goodness knows, we can't let the little brats be called losers!

I say us adults play dodgeball with their mothers! hehe I'd bean em good.

Catch said...

They should let these kids grow up like we grew up...they baby them and they grow up to be pampered spoiled wusses. Im so with you on this Fuzz.....our school had the kids picking up litter around the school...I thought it was great for the kids to learn hopefully not to litter...but another friend went to the school and raised hell..said his kid wasnt a janitor!! What a moron.

Mimi said...

Wussies for sure. Instead of going into politics, we need Arnold and that wrestler turned govener dude to go into education.

Phats said...

Red Raiders looked good tonight Fuzz

:P fuzzbox said...

sugdaddy: When they make us feel valued, we are actually getting shortchanged.

david: I am all about my right to be offensive.

mike: I wish I could go back in time and whack these parents in the face with a flattened red ball one more time.

angel, jr: You said it all.

:P fuzzbox said...

ez: God, I hope not. It is a dance that is nearly as cool as it's name. And it teaches us what it's all about.

ozy: Phunny.

red: Dodgeball should be an Olympic sport.

phats: I haven't thought of Freezeball Tag in a long time. Awesome Game.

:P fuzzbox said...

jane: It damn sure works for me.

catch: That guy sounds like a real ass.

mimi: It couldn't hurt.

phats: They just might have a shot at doing something this year. (Knocking on wood.)

Ol' Lady said...

I wonder what will happen if/when the educators learn what 'ring around the posie' actually is about...maybe burn the children who are playing it on a cross???

:P fuzzbox said...

ol lady: They'd all fall down. ;)
