Sad thing is most of them have families with kids when they do move back to their ancestral home.


And that is exactly why most of them are out there.  To give you the opportunity to explore the idea that you might end up in your parents basement by Xmas.  If not you, then someone else you know.

It's bullshit that we older adults still think we're in the same economy that we had.  Kids are the first to see the collapsing side of a  credit-fueled binge.

My former Marine corp son struggled for six months to find a job.  He applied EVERYWHERE.  He finally found one at a local supermarket.  The last thing he wants to do is be dependent on anyone or anything.  We're making the most of it, but it eats at him and all I can do is support and encourage.

It doesn't take great talent to pick a kid out of the crowd and have him spout.  Kids don't have the answers.  They have the questions.  It the piss poor stewardship of this country by us older people that's made things hard for everyone.  Are we proud of the legacy that we're leaving them?

what's the American Dream Myth?  Work hard and you'll be richer than your parents.  That ain't happening now.

Graduate, go to college, get job, work, retire.  That shit is last century.  The class war is HERE, but it's been waged by the executive class on the working class.  Why hire an american when everyone in the kitchen is mexican and can't speak english and can be exploited?

The OWS kids with their iPads are running into a wall I call "unmet expectations" or unfulfilled entitlements.  This is obvious when looking down through the "I am the 99%" stories where we see person after person levered up in egregious debt, whether it's a person who bought a house at the peak or a student who accrued $100k for a useless college degree.

People still expect as a right all the trappings of an economy that no longer exists.  And it stings to see connected kids getting all the favors as if this is Brazil

Israel is growing and the Arabs are about to fall off a cliff. Obviously the Resident needs advice from a country that actually works.BTW Israel will soon be self sufficient in oil and gas. They design Intel chips. Their biotech is world class.

Demographics is destiny. And the Arabs/Persians are sinking like a stone. Starvation is stalking Egypt.

Israel exists due to America's largess - financial, political & military.  Take that away, and what will you have?

And watch out for those demographics, too.  Hoards of hungry Arabs with less to lose everyday is not a pretty picture.  The Palestinian problem will only continue to get worse, and now Egypt is a big and growing problem.

It is far past time that America read the riot act to Israel and force them to come to terms with reality.  They constantly thumb their nose at the rest of the world as they are lead around by the far-right Zionists, who, in essence are no better than the extremists Muslims.  Extremists everywhere are going to be the downfall of all of us.

the palestinian problem will resolve itself over time as they are systematically dispossed of even more land.  At the end of the day, with peace on the table, there won't be enough of a State left for them.  And the zionists will proclaim, "what's done is done."

The REALITY is that the ME conflict won't be solved by anything other than force of arms.  This is a really OLD blood feud and a couple of religions that cannot live with anyone else's religion.  The jews do not tolerate anymore than the muslims in their neighborhood do.

I agree.  Plus, we have no dog in this hunt, so why do we continue to bankroll the ancient blood feud?  Why not let them go at it, and let God decide the winner.  After all, both sides lay claim to being His favorite.  How else can it ever be proven?

Israel will soon be oil and gas sufficient because they are stealing it from the Palestinians and Lebanese.  Israel is  designing Intel chips no doubt with hackable back doors so they can steal our intellectual property and spy on anyone they choose.  Israel's biotech is world class, especially kidney removal techniques for organ trafficking to rich clients in the US.

Demographically, Israel is failing.  A lot of Israelis are trying to get out and fewer Jews want to go there, at least sane ones.  The Arab countries are growing populations.  The only reason starvation is stalking Egypt is the changeover from food crops that used to feed their population, and then some, to boutique crops like strawberries to please the globalization monster.

Israel works?  Didn't MSimon notice the massive demonstrations there by people who are being crushed by high rents jacked-up by greedy landlords?  Israel's Zionist government needs a war right now to distract the public and force dissenters to shut up or have their patriotism questioned.  Hey, the same trick their butt boyfriends in the US government would like to try here.

Of course Netanyayhoo is a fuckin liar...and a corrupt convict.  But his fellow citizens, aka dual passport holders run the USA.  Vast majorities of media, finance, and legislative chairs.

Your career will commit suicide the second you even contemplate questioning how the protection of whatever Israel wants is in the US's central strategic interests.

Hell, we were willing to basically go to nuclear war over this little State.

I've been there for a while too. I just keep monitoring for the eventual meltdown so I can head for the hills.

Still, I gotta get a laugh in every now and then, especially now when things are still going good.

I can't imagine there will be a lot to laugh about when there are tanks in the street.
