Sure, this is worthy of government action and taxpayer dollars.

Way to dig into the big issues NC.

Small government republicans, constantly working to ensure government do the smallest things.

People who invented participation trophies for their kids try to score political points by making a show of getting rid of them.

Weather at 10. Back to you Ronnie!

Killer comment - this is the game.

Their kids are special, everyone else's are either priviliged shits or immigrants.

More culture war BS to distract from the real issues.


blazelet t1_jedkl5w wrote

Agree completely, but what would you define as "the real issues" ?


FawksyBoxes t1_jef4a31 wrote

Universal healthcare, gun control, ensuring people's basic medical rights are protected.

Took me years to figure out the "small" in small government used the "petty" definition of small.

“Participation trophies” are nothing new. In the 1949 short Junior Rodeo Daredevils the kids all get participation trophies (awards for tryin’) at the end. Seeing as boomers would only have 3-years-old at the time, I’d suggest this isn’t a modern phenomenon.

Participation trophies came around in the 1920s and were most popular in the 60s, when the boomers were kids, and didn't become controversial until the 1990s, when Millennials were kids.

"party of small government"...

They are the party of big government and their game is trickle up economics.

Confederate states are governed by drooling idiots

I think we should eliminate participation paychecks for NC Senators. If you don't accomplish anything this month you get no check.

How about if we reclassify the Civil War as a Youth Sport? Then all those Confederate monuments are banned.

One of them's the guy who interrogated the TikTok CEO, isn't it?

"Can TikTok access mah home Wah-Fah?"

Get your act together boomers. First some of you invent participation trophies, then others of you complain that youngsters are all soft, but are clueless that it was your own generation that caused it.

JHC what is wrong with these folk!? Talk about micro-managing. What happen to the party of personal freedom? I guess that only applies to corporations now days.

Literally nothing is too petty for them.

I'm just reminded of when GOB Bluth bought the trophy store.

Reddit: participation awards are stupid

Also reddit: a republican tried to ban them? I love participation awards


FawksyBoxes t1_jef4ozk wrote

More like, "Why are they focusing on this and not establishing universal healthcare, gun control, or protecting basic medical rights for people."


HaAnotherLlama t1_jecwtq1 wrote

ngl... I support this.


diagnosedwolf t1_jecxdsj wrote

I don’t. One thing I object to more than “everyone gets a trophy for showing up” is the actual government telling me that I may not give out random prizes.

Like, what? Why are senators discussing this? School teachers should be discussing this.
