Fruits of the participation trophy and tide pod eating generation. Good job parents!
A. My generation would be embarrassed as hell living at home.
B. The parents let them stay.

I thought we were supposed to be worried about the disintegration of the American family. Just because they're living with their parents, doesn't mean they don't contribute.

Okay, here's the thing. If by "your generation" you mean baby boomers, the thing about baby boomers is that they could get good jobs and move out when they hit adulthood.

Not so much now. 40 years of Right Wing dismantling of the middle class has had an effect.

Hilarious. Tell me more about Obama and Clinton’s dismantling of the middle class.

Yes, the family unit is all about children never forging their own lives and families.

Who said never? Large family units have been around forever and the kids were alright.

Really? Because frankly, those were the only times the middle class made any kind of recovery.

Last five recessions happened when Republicans were in charge. It's not a bug, it's a design feature.

Try again. House creates the budget and laws.
But you get a participation trophy for trying.

No shock you justify a 35 year old living in the basement. You one of them?

Well the thing is Billy and Ears were really neocons, just like the two dumb Bushs and Trump. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t get this and I suspect Joe is one of them. At least he gets partial credit.

Because we went to school to learn actual skills and useful trades instead of Lesbian Basket Weaving and Inuit Literature.

Because we went to job interviews in suit and tie without nose piercings and face tattoos.

Because we went to work knowing we wouldn't get paid if we didn't contribute to the company bottom line.

Because we never imagined the world 'owed' us anything because of our gender, our color, our lifestyle, our dietary choices, or our political affiliations.

Budgets and laws aren't what cause good or bad economies.

What causes them are how well the executive branch does its job... by anticipating potential problems.

So let's look at the last five recessions and what caused them.

1) 2020- Trump's failures on Covid and his unnecessary trade wars.
2) 2008 - Bush's failure to police the banking industry.
3) 2001 - Bush's failure to prevent 9/11 and his reckless tax policy.
4) 1990 - Bush Sr.'s failure to police the banking industry
5) 1981- Reagan's attempts to control inflation by squeezing the money supply and costing jobs.

So is that why you’ve maxed out your credit cards and mortgaged everything, budgets don’t have things to do with economic stability?

Failure? Even North Korea has the ChiCom Flu. Maybe Pelosi shouldn’t have told people to go to Chinatown without masks and hug people to show their not racists.

Houses job, shitforbrains

3) 2001 - Bush's failure to prevent 9/11 and his reckless tax policy.
Clinton had OBL and refused to pull the trigger.

4) 1990 - Bush Sr.'s failure to police the banking industry
Houses job again, shitforbrains.

5) 1981- Reagan's attempts to control inflation by squeezing the money supply and costing jobs.
Carter had 29% home loans and 18% unemployment you forgot to mention. Reagan was gaining a million jobs and ended the decades long threat of nuclear winter.

Wow. this lie again. Why you always lying.


Top Five Majors
Business
Nursing
Psychology
Biology
Engineering.

They have a whole list... Lesbian Basket Weaving is nowhere to be found.

Because we went to job interviews in suit and tie without nose piercings and face tattoos.

Uh, as someone who writes resumes professionally, I can tell you straight up, I've never seen anyone with nose piercings or face tattoos...

Frankly, I've always wondered about this weird interview thing where they require you to wear a suit and tie, which you will never wear again in most jobs.


Because we went to work knowing we wouldn't get paid if we didn't contribute to the company bottom line.

Okay. Most kids understand that. The problem isn't that they don't work hard..The problem is that the Boomer Generation had the benefit of coming up when unions were still kind of a thing, and inflation hadn't devalued base wages to the point of meaninglessness.

I was able to work my way through college... but when I did, tuition was affordable and the minimum wage actually meant something. I could pay my state tuition only working 10 hours a week at minimum wage. You really can't do that now.

Because we never imagined the world 'owed' us anything because of our gender, our color, our lifestyle, our dietary choices, or our political affiliations.

Uh, to be perfectly honest, this is kind of a generational bias. Every generation thinks the younger generation are slackers... I know my dad was of the WWII generation, and they went through some real shit... and thought us Baby Boomers were a bunch of hippy slackers.

The reality- boomers are just as likely to face age discrimination as a young person is to get rejected because they feel "entitled".

Wow, guy, you really suck at analogies.

Trump increased the national debt by 8 trillion in four years... He kind of owns a lot of that blame, by your logic.

And required to get your business major are 5 classes in underwater basket weaving, 12 classes of lesbian diversity and 7 classes on the 42 sexual groups.
