  • "Pussy Generation"

    EXCERPTS:
    ...
    ESQ: Your characters have become touchstones in the culture, whether it's Reagan invoking "Make my day" or now Trump … I swear he's even practiced your scowl.

    CE:
    Maybe. But he's onto something, because secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That's the kiss-ass generation we're in right now. We're really in a pussy generation. Everybody's walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren't called racist. And then when I did Gran Torino, even my associate said, "This is a really good script, but it's politically incorrect." And I said, "Good. Let me read it tonight." The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, "We're starting this immediately."

    ESQ:
    What is the "pussy generation"?

    CE:
    All these people that say, "Oh, you can't do that, and you can't do this, and you can't say that." I guess it's just the times.

    ESQ:
    What do you think Trump is onto?

    CE:
    What Trump is onto is he's just saying what's on his mind. And sometimes it's not so good. And sometimes it's … I mean, I can understand where he's coming from, but I don't always agree with it.

    ESQ:
    So you're not endorsing him?

    CE:
    I haven't endorsed anybody. I haven't talked to Trump. I haven't talked to anybody. You know, he's a racist now because he's talked about this judge. And yeah, it's a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He's said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody—the press and everybody's going, "Oh, well, that's racist," and they're making a big hoodoo out of it. Just ****ing get over it. It's a sad time in history.

    ESQ:
    What troubles you the most?

    CE:
    We're not really … what troubles me is … I guess when I did that silly thing at the Republican convention, talking to the chair …

    ESQ:
    I didn't say it was silly.

    CE:
    It was silly at the time, but I was standing backstage and I'm hearing everybody say the same thing: "Oh, this guy's a great guy." Great, he's a great guy. I've got to say something more. And so I'm listening to an old Neil Diamond thing and he's going, "And no one heard at all / Not even the chair." And I'm thinking, That's Obama. He doesn't go to work. He doesn't go down to Congress and make a deal. What the hell's he doing sitting in the White House? If I were in that job, I'd get down there and make a deal. Sure, Congress are lazy bastards, but so what? You're the top guy. You're the president of the company. It's your responsibility to make sure everybody does well. It's the same with every company in this country, whether it's a two-man company or a two-hundred-man company… . And that's the pussy generation—nobody wants to work.

        Yep, from an entitlement generation that thinks everything should be handed to them in a silver platter and the Government should provide all.

        This November is the tipping point. Either the voters change the direction of this country, or they will allow it to sail off the financial cliff of bankruptcy into economic Armageddon.

            “To talk of many things:
            Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
            Of cabbages—and kings—
            And why the sea is boiling hot—
            And whether pigs have wings.”

                      Your definition of 'soon' must be very strange then. Same prediction was made in 08. So 8 years later it is not even close to happening. So I guess 8 years is not soon. So please define 'soon' for you current prediction. 2 yeaers?, 4? 8? 20?

                        I'll sum it up in two words:

                        Safety first.

                        When you put being safe ahead of everything else, you lose. It's that simple. You stop taking risks. You lay down and do nothing, accomplish nothing.
                        It's an attitude that's invaded every corner of society. Environmentalism is now zero tolerance, not just eliminating dangerous levels of pollution, but rather all pollution.
                        Product safety. Need I describe where that's gone? How about those warning labels on coffee cups because some idiot spilled her hot coffee out of one on herself...?
                        It extends to political correctness. You can't say anything about anyone or anything that might be taken as the slightest insult, or even construed that way. You have to practice in essence "safety talk" 100% of the time.

                        Safety comes second. Results come first.

                          It isn't so much the debt as the fact that most people have forgotten why we need to actually work instead of talking about how to distribute the produce.

                          The same people that decry the unfair nature of distribution of wealth make the smallest contribution to it's creation. At the same time that absolute poverty has almost disappeared socialist and Marxist ideology is having a renaissance amongst perhaps the most personally irresponsible lower class in US history.

                          In a world where no one is held responsible for their outcome in life it is little wonder that they would turn to collectivist solutions. BLM and feminism beiw two excellent examples of how a victim mentally disempowers individuals.

                          Social justice is an ongoing concern but what most people don't understand is that gaining total equality is meaningless if in the process Rome is destroyed. Most people would be dead in a month if every potentially bigoted working man and woman stopped providing essential services. One needs only look at how many centuries it took the population of Western Europe to reach levels equal to Roman empire levels to understand how important social order is. Today the interdependence of society is many times higher. Look at New Orleans to see what happens when people are left to their own devices.

                            Self reliance and work ethic complete the equation that starts with willingness to take necessary risks. The current trend is societal suicide.
