He's been pretty obvious about that, talking about how 'Merica isn't winning at things anymore.
That, I don't disagree with. I see our culture in segments: my grandparents/parents made it through the Depression and WW2 and built great things; their children inherited a nation that boasted amazing infrastructure and NASA; their children lived large on the opulence provided by their forebears; their children lack initiative and vision, but are demanding and critical.

I know that you can find quotes from Socrates where he says the same - but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
Who's willing to work hard, get smart, and rebuild the country? (Hint - they're not citizens. The citizens are chanting "Merica!," refusing education in favor of "beliefs" and are on cruise control watching TV and wishing they were rappers/princesses.) 

 
Or expecting to be CEO's coming straight out of college with useless degrees in the humanities.  I'm not knocking the humanities, just saying that they don't lead to jobs that are going to make one wealthy, let alone independent.  The sense of entitlement leads to these unreal expectations.  They want to be paid for just showing up.

I basically agree with your generational explanation.  I would only disagree with your thoughts as to when this 'amazing infrastructure' was built.  It was built mostly in the 70's and 80's by the boomer generation.  I remember my first trip to school in Florida in the fall of 1970 driving down from Philly to Melbourne, Fla and there was only 10 miles of I - 95 built in the state of Georgia at the time.  When we left California in Nov of 68 to move to Philly, there were no Interstates, we took US 66 all the way to OK City and kept going on other US federal highways.  But this is a very small point.  This amazing infrastructure is in shambles for a myriad of reasons. This infrastructure built only 30 years ago is rotting and near worthless.  We had a stimulus that was supposed to pay for its rebuilding.  6 years later, there's no improvement to speak of.  

Oh and what did Josh Ernest say today in response to being asked about what was behind the single largest drop of the DOW in history ?  He said we need to spend invest in more infrastructure in order to make things better as his answer.  Infrastructure is liberal speak for a slush fund for cronyism ...

I'm laughing now.  Trump ain't going nowhere.  

Reflecting on the body of the above article, Trump holds all the cards.  Let's pretend that Trump has enough cash to buy a law firm and employ it full time filing law suits against malicious tweeters and bloggers.  Someone spouting unsubstantiated bs about him and all he has to do is make a call and say sue the bastid and yippy-skippy.  He can shut down almost all of it, unlike anyone else can.  We all know that you can sue anyone for anything, so nothing is stopping him.

I believe that it would stop the usual reckless behaviour of just plain making things up to put a candidate on the defensive and spend time defending themselves instead of speaking about the things they want to talk about.  The bloggers and what not will have to take time and spend money to defend themselves, instead of counting on the fact that no candidate to date has the resources required to take on these propagandists.  Its easy to sit and spew when you know there are no real consequences, but when you have to put your money where your mouth is, well I think that this is a game changer. 

I think that this would be pretty cool, not that it would ever happen, cuz Trump is only a clown posing as a candidate, he wouldn't be smart enough to do what I mentioned above.  And no I didn't read this anywhere, its just my imagination that arrived at this scenario.

Strangest Hot Take of the Day: Why Evangelicals Like Trump

(...) In the service of explaining what there is of an evangelical attraction to Trump (and, as I wrote earlier this week, it is there, although by no means a majority), Brody portrays Trump as a no-holds-barred honest broker and, therefore, victim of the media. That’s why, he says, evangelicals can relate.

“Donald Trump operates in a world of absolutes,” Brody writes. “A world of right and wrong; a world of winners (him) and losers (McCain, Perry, etc); a world of put up or shut up (literally).”

“And what does Trump get for speaking out so boldly without holding back?” Brody asks. “Public ridicule.” (...)

Yeah, pretty much right.

I just gotta take exception to the author's take that Trump and his supporters are anti immigrant.  No, there is a separate distinction about being against illegal immigration.  It does not mean that they are anti immigrant.  This is pure BS to keep this crap going.  Nearly all who are against illegal immigration have no problem with legal immigration, except when the work visas displace American workers.

Republicans need to think about who backs Trump at the moment.  It’s a big chunk of the GOP base, at least the anti-immigrant wing.  If Republicans lose these folks next year in the general election, they’re doomed.

.
If anyone can break through this damaging, dishonest narrative about the truth of illegal immigration Trump will.  First step is making it clear that it is real and real people are dying as a direct result.  Liberals are in total denial that there is such a thing as illegal immigration.  The more they deny it, the more they will fire up deeper and lasting support for Trump

.
Oh, and loved the Steyn piece
