Sacrifices v Entitelment

“Somewhere in the last 20 years of baby boom rule, Americans decided to act as if we had a divine right to everything…all at a time when the country was waging wars in Afghanistan and  Iraq.” Thomas Friedman

In stark contrast to the Use it up, make it do, or do without ethos of WW2 , today’s Americans have been fighting two wars in the Middle East yet we did not raise taxes to pay for the war, nor have we been asked to make any sacrifices.
