    • I got an earful today in what started out as lighthearted teasing, but then the young person began to really speak their mind.

      Here’s what a 22 yr old had to say about people over 40.

      Because of You—we have a national debt that may never get payed off

      Because of You and the way you partied when you were younger, EVERYTHING is illegal now.

      Because of You—AIDS spread all over the world.

      He had plenty more, but those are the top three I can remember.  

      Some days it’s annoying having young co-workers, some days it’s amusing, and sometimes it’s quite the eye opener.

    • Well I would say thank you to that young man for even being partially aware. Most of the young people I know have no clue about anything besides themselves.

      I do know that my daughters only relate the 80’s to me!

    • I personally could care less about how this younger generation views us as a people, they have NOT a clue about life. I work with/ supervise a lot of young females ages ranging from 19-25 and they are some of the most ignorant, uninformed and silly bunch of uneducated people I’ve ever ran into. All they can talk about is their Bridge cards, their baby daddy drama, who else their sleeping with, getting their hair and nails done and getting a new outfit with the money their tricking the state out of which is suppose to go to assistance for their children and so much more, this generation is so lost it is just sickening and to put blame on us go kick rocks!!!!tongue out

    • I agree with you both Neicy and Vikki...I commend the young man for keeping up on his current affairs, but he should not be listening to mainstream media to get his information.

      And many young women today are COMPLETELY wrapped up in themselves, and shame on them for being selfish thieves.

      I believe each high school senior in every school in every state should be taking a class in Marriage (and how to deal with it), Child-rearing (and how to be a good parent), Sexual Control (how to keep your sexual urges under control...girls and boys), Learning Financial Responsibility (so they know how to plan for the future), Elder Care (so they don’t throw their parents to the dogs), and finally NOT relying on either the government or credit cards to bail them out of trouble.

      That is my view on younger people today!estatic

    • Well, I guess I’m lucky to know (work with/be neighbor to/have given birth to) a pretty good bunch of kids because most of the 18-28 yr old crowd I know are really hard working people who are doing their best to make a decent life for themselves.  They get out and vote and get involved in the community and a lot of them are working two and three jobs.  

      The young man who made this statement was, I think, mostly joking because he enjoys teasing me about my “advanced” age.  But it did make me stop and wonder how young people perceive our generation.  And was he partly right about some of that stuff?

    • I THINK that kids are not mis informed, they don’t care to take the time to be informed.

      I wrote about how angry I was few years back in this blog:  

      http://fabulously40.com/blog/id/i-m-angry-12460

      Unfortunately, it only gotten worst in the last few years. Hearing kids talk about politcs is a real joke. I probably would be laughing if it wasn’t so sad how ignorant they are.

      My daughter came from college on the day of the elections and said that the whole campus was talking about voting for Obama is crucial because as soon as Ramni takes office abortions become illegal automatically.

      REALLLLLLY??????

      This isn’t jr. High, and the kids are not 14 year olds, this is University....and kids are no longer teens.....

    • Oh wow, that is crazy!  Evidently nobody has taught these kids to think and to search out informtion on their own?

      We had quite the discussion around the supper table the Saturday before election.  My kds and their S/Os were all very concerned that Obama (or any other incumbent) NOT get elected.

    • I absolutely agree..our son has taken an active part in learning about politics, questioning things that don’t make any sense and not getting caught up in the brain-washing that is apparently going on with many young adults today.

      I believe many young people ARE getting a good dose of reality since so many of them are graduating and not getting into their chosen field, and it is possibly sinking in?
