You honestly think that an entire generation of millions of people can't do simple math equations?

Stop kidding yourself that perspective is a joke.

If that were remotely true, that would be the fault of the school systems YOU DESIGNED

But it's the kids fault they aren't getting educated properly.

Personal responsibility is touted as an end all be all to everything everywhere when in fact things can and are typically more complicated.

It's an unempathetic response and lacks a general sense of compassion.


Compassion? Where does compassion fit in, in all of this?

He can't hire from his own generation. They all demand too much pay.


That may be true. Like they say, "You get what you pay for."

Your post reminds me of the parents willing to kick their kid out on the street and let them die because they aren't "successful" and embarrassing.

The only valid point your making is that our system of education is a comaleate failure.

I made a response to him about compassion on the last page to which I didnt recieve a response......

Apparently its only compassionate to them if it fits into a certain paradigm of thought.

You say:


But then again, the game of life. not the Hasbro version, but the real one has never been fair.


What have you done to try to correct this problem? Why do you venomously support a system that is in your own words not fair?

I do not expect the world to become a utopia overnight, but imho it might get better if people were willing to sacrifice a little and put efforts into improving it, rather putting all their efforts out for themselves.

How are any of the posts you have made in this thread improving anything?

How is that much different than wanting the babyboomers to die and get out of the way?

Hypocrite....you have no credibility!!


Hell must be freezing over....I'm agreeing with members that I never thought we would agree on anything!!

Anyway the millineals will be absorbed into the corporate oligarchy just like the hippies, x gens and all the rest of them. It's inevitable....
