1st comment: I am not worried because someone is not like me, I am worried because this is propaganda being pushed on children not telling the whole story of why we are in this situation by the people who got us in the situation.
Specifically they talk about more educational spending (not Fed responsibility), they talk about more "green" energy unless it's nuclear then it's just another solyndra, everything in that video talks about more intrusion and fed gov growth.
What does that even mean? Answer the questions. By biggest bang do you mean greatest erosion of liberty?
The Lib movement has failed, even here in Liberal California are people moving away from Democratic policies.
High Speed Bullet trains were estimated to cost 1/3 what it really costs.
Global Warming is over, no one can run on that platform, not even Obama.
Green energy?...Well...Solyndra is all I need to say about that.
Massive taxation and regulation has pushed business, industry, and the wealthy out of the state.
Highest taxes in the nation, 2nd worst unemployment rate in the country, 2nd worst performing schools in the country (yet the highest paid teachers in the country), 1/3 of the country's welfare, 1/2 of the country's illegal aliens....
Yep, pretty much the best way to send a state into bankruptcy at warp speed.
It's funny. I just spoke to one of my friends who had his oldest daughter graduate from Pepperdine and Liberal as all get out. He told me now that she's been working and paying her own bills, she has dropped a lot of her liberal thinking where it comes to economics. I cannot understand how someone could continue to be of a liberal mind while earning a living for themselves.
Once she get married and has some kids, the liberal mind regarding social issues usually changes as well.
I was a flaming eco-communist during college....it took just a few years on my own working to change all that.
If you're older than 30, then you don't really know what's going on. I'm 17 and I live in a generation of lazy-ass liberal teenagers who think just because they're "different" and don't want to "fit in" and "be like everybody else", that somebody fucking owes them something and that the government should do something about their troubles at school and protect them from being bullied. My generation needs to grow the fuck up and realize that the world ain't this little bubble of protection that these kids' parents have made it out to be. If you ask me, it's our parents' fault. I don't blame my parents because they raised me the right way and to not depend on everybody else to solve my problems. But a majority of these kids in my generation are a bunch of ungrateful fucks.
I know you won't listen, but you might want to talk less and listen more for a few years. Losing the attitude and listening to those "old folk" thirty-somethings (and older!) will net you some huge gains.
One more thing for future thought: if you are a normal kid, you are as smart as you will ever be around the age of 19. Ask anyone who has older kids, it's true.
If you take a moment to look into things, you'll see we need to be looking at all our energy options for the future, including green and nuclear. If you are serious, you'll realize that there are real risks, challenges, and problems with every energy solution. I think nuclear has to be on the table, but I also know people from Fukushima-ken ("that" place in Japan).
Sorry if this isn't the thread for this type of talk.
No, I don't have an "attitude" and yes, I get what you're saying. Sorry if my post made me come off as condescending. I try not to listen to anybody who doesn't have life experience. I kind of like to apply Dave Tate's training logic to it: If you're trying to bench 500 pounds, why would you listen to somebody that hasn't even benched 400? That's the way I see it. If you haven't been through the situation, then why would you try and give advice on it?
Lol I can't agree more. When I was taking classes to become an EMT and taking a couple introduction to firefighting classes, the students were ridiculous. Pink hair, facial piercings, mohawks; the teachers were all old paramedics and firefighters. They told all these kids, look, you need to change that shit, or you're never gonna get a job in this industry..no old lady wants to call 911 and see a guy with a green mohawk and a giant nose ring get out of an ambulance. These kids would snicker and say that their appearance doesn't matter. In my three years as an EMT, did not see anybody that looked like those kids.
I can't imagine the professional world would be any better. Maybe I'm just prejudice myself but, and I'm only 25, but if I was hiring someone for a position, and I had a choice between someone who was clean cut and someone with pink hair and a nose ring (assuming they were equal in education and what not), I'm picking the former.
Now that I went back to school, and surrounded by this ridiculous mindset again and it's just outstanding to me that these kids can be so oblivious and think things like their appearance doesn't matter. They really think everything's just going to be handed to them. As Adam Corrola said, we're dealing with the first wave of participation trophy kids.
I seemed to piss off the so called conservatives I feel terrible, MY point was if you think kids are going to hell because they want to do something better , then you got a problem. I think it is unlikely they will do some thing better but one can only hope
Your comment about me moving to China or USSR :)is funny these would be Republican heaven , Very little Regulation in RE to business. Treat your worker like shit if you like , Fuck the environment who needs it , who care about health care they breed like rats any how . That is China .
