In a column by J.E. Lawrence in the Nebraska State Journal in 1949 about the way that pioneer life molded character: “New land is harsh, and vigorous, and sturdy. It scorns evidence of weakness. There is nothing of sham or hypocrisy in it. It is what it is, without apology.”
Obviously the idiom is here to stay. It should also be noted it is used quite frequently in the business world.
