If you are an American under the age of 30, you have probably figured
out by now that the entire economic system is stacked against you. The
way that our economy is structured today is ridiculously unfair to
younger Americans. First, we endlessly push our young people to go to
our ridiculously expensive colleges and universities where the pile up
enormous amounts of debt. Then they get out into the real world where
they find that only a handful of really good jobs are available for the
vast army of college graduates entering the workforce. Sadly, most of
the jobs that our young people are working these days do not pay enough
to be able to support a family or buy a decent home. Meanwhile, our
politicians are busy mortgaging their future. Our young people are
expected to support a Social Security system that will not be there when
they get older, and every single day more than 2 billion dollars is
added to a debt that will hang around the necks of younger Americans and
their children for the rest of their lives. If you stop and think
about all of this for too long, your head might just explode with
anger. Well, not literally, but you get the point. The truth is that
this is going to be the first generation in U.S. history that is going
to do significantly worse than their parents, and that is a terrible
Are you not convinced that things are really bad for younger Americans?
Do you think that they should just shut up and quit whining about things?
Well, keep reading. You just might change your mind by the time this article is over.

Great article! Sad, but great!
I marvel at the apparent optimism of college students. Here, at "my" university, most of the students seem to think that they are really doing something positive about what they perceive to be "the future". Is seems that a bunch of them have been living in a bubble...It WILL BURST!
I've never expected anything from what passes for "higher" education, and I've never been disappointed. Considering that the same trite crap is still pretty much being taught, today, as was taaught 40-50 years ago, and that the cost to students has risen as much as 5000%, the whole thing is a pathetic and vile joke. If any of this was a valid "business model" and even remotely reasonable, you'd at least expect that education (what is taught and the level of knowledge accrued) would have inproved almost beyond human comprehension: Trust me on this one. education hasn't improved 10%!
If you believe that "college grads" are somehow the brighter future of America, you are in for one very big disappointment - If you live long enough. College grads have pretty much put this country behind that big 8-ball that is bearing down on you and yours! I rest my case. (Actually, I don't want you to believe that colleges and universities are actually training criminals; it's just that the criminals are getting degreed and elected to office.)
