Default Turn out the lights, America is doomed.

Watch this youtube video of an economics professor and you will probably agree.

I agree...even without watching the video.

The only variable is our individual definition of *doom* which can prompt some interesting, spirited conversation on the intertubes or at the kitchen table.

My tinfoil hat is firmly ensconced on my ole punkin head as I await the apockyclips (tm) ~ zombies optional.



eta: Ok, I watched.

We could certainly use more *teachers/professors* like him, but I'm afraid it's too late to turn back the clock 70 years.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

No offense to our younger members, but:

For heaven's sakes folks, the story is about 19 year olds. Most of them away from home for the first time, and few of them have had jobs. The don't know where money comes from, hell, half of them don't know where babies come form. They will grow up.

But now that I think of it, free house, education, medical, and entertainment is not a bad idea. If we could just get rid of the work thing it would be a perfect society. Maybe they have the right idea.

I spend 8 hours a day around these college sophmores, some of them haven't got a clue about anything but facebook.

What's the saying???

If your not a liberal in your 20's you have no heart, if your not a conservative by your 30's you have no brain.

I know I butchered it but it's something like that.

After seeing the video,"I understand the Georgetown Law student that testified (whined) about free contraception. Where does this mindset of entitlement come from, trophies for everyone and nobody keeps score. News flash life keeps score even if mommy didn't.
