Observations from an Indignant Millennial
The Patriot Post ^ | 6/19/2019 | Mark Alexander

Posted on 06/19/2019 2:52:18 PM PDT by Mama Shawna

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that even I can see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

Why? The answer is this: My generation has ONLY seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the Great Depression, or live through two world wars, or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet and smartphones. We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.

I am not sure this is NEWS? Maybe blog/chat?

There may be something to the idea that Millennials have had things to easy to understand.

So, do what I do and set your home page up to show everything. Then you won’t even know which category an article was posted.

Agreed, largely.

OTOH, being convinced that they need to attend college right out of high school, which is essentially a four year theme park, for 30k per year to get a degree in something no one will ever pay you for.
You graduate and either you have a wanted degree and have to compete with H1Bs or a stupid degree where you work in a call center for $15/hr. Further, you have no chance of ever being able to afford a home.

Now, my nephews and nieces didn’t go down that road of disaster, my kids aren’t headed that way either, but if one were to do so, and that’s at the advisement of many adults, I could see why one would feel that way relative to other generations.

Maybe you were just excited.

I post articles so rarely, I wasn’t sure. I’m sure the mods will fix it if they want. Just thought it was interesting.

That's only because you get about 30% of them.

They get tiresome as hell, I'll tell you what.

Takin' the hit for the team, me.

plus they came out of 12 years of government school indoctrination.

I just told my recent graduate daughter tat. Now that she’s out of school she’s going to discover there are other points of view.

"Never mind... I thought it said indigent millennial."


Nope.   It's "indigo millennial".

You think it’s my doing that the thread was moved to chat?
It wasn’t me that posted it as news and it wasn’t me that moved it to chat.

How am I to blame for anything here?

You’re racist.

And you think anyone here gives anymore credence for your sputtering than they would a paint-huffing homeless hillbilly rummaging through a dumpster behind Stop & Rob for red-hot pork rinds.

How do you figure that?
