And don't give me any lip about it, because it's someone else's fault.

Hi, I'm Justin. And I am very happy going through life as a turd. For more insights on both sides of The Slackoisie Thing, many of them quite good/funny, see this post and related links at Simple Justice by Scott Greenfield, one of the few non-PC voices in a New Age wilderness of mediocrity-coddling and accommodating-the-lame. So the "issue" gets defined a bit more. We hard-driving boomers, subtly brutalized by our Depression Era Greatest Generation parents, have helped create this new batch of semiliterate lightweights and wimps who give up at the least sign of adversity. So what do we do about it?

I've been following this conversation at Simple Justice as well, and it reminded me of a similar converation going on at the same time at Charlie Green's blog Trust Matters:

I do find certain parallels between the magical thinking of the law of attraction crowd and the I-want-a-pony thinking of the slackoisie.
