CALLER: Yeah. And, Rush, you know what? I went to a Tea Party rally in Raleigh last year, and the clientele of people that were there were older, you know, I was 59 at the time, and there were a lot of people my age, there were a lot of people right up until that World War II generation that had served. They were polite; they were kind; they were orderly; they were clean. I mean, we left the capitol and you coulda eaten off the ground.
RUSH: Yeah, I know.
CALLER: Yeah. And, you know, Rush, I grew up, I was privileged and my parents sent me to a parochial school. And, you know, this ADD that they talk about, you know, people say ADD, ADD, everybody ADHD, whatever.
CALLER: You know what I call that? ADD?
RUSH: Being a kid.
CALLER: Yeah. Absence of discipline disorder.
CALLER: That’s what it is.
RUSH: I like it.
CALLER: I had it when I was young. But the nuns beat it out of me in about two weeks, along with all the other kids that were unruly in the class. And we were taught to be obedient. We were taught to respect our elders. Rush, I went to high school when you did. I had to wear a suit coat and tie at a public school and have my hair cropped so it didn’t go over the collar and didn’t go over the ears, and these kids today, I’ve seen it for 30 years since I started having children of my own, and my wife and I would take our kids out to public restaurants and public places, and we made our children obey, we made them, they knew —
RUSH: Well, you know, that’s the old days. Now parents want to be friends.
CALLER: Yeah, they want to be their friends.
CALLER: They want to be their friends and this is the result of it. We have these kids that think they’re entitled to everything, you know, and we’ve seen it for 30 years. To this day, you go into any shopping center or store or restaurant and these young children are so unruly, they’re crying, they’re screaming, and it just reminds me, I knew there was gonna be a payback, and this is it, this is the payback —
RUSH: You knew there was — (laughing)
CALLER: This is it. We’re seeing it.
RUSH: Well, there is a lot of spoiled bratness —
CALLER: Yes, exactly.
