  1. And Yet 60% of under 30s backed Obama. That was like being against the Viet Nam war and voting for LBJ.

  2. You made a point about young & minority un(der)employment; you could make the same point about inflation.

    Obama’s policy of depreciating the dollar (via massive deficits, monetized by the Fed) means higher prices for food and gas. Poor & middle class are hardest hit. (Rich people are compensated partially, by Obama’s artificially-higher asset prices.)

  3. That snarky list of “Things to Say to an Obama Voter who Gets Laid Off” I started on my blog last week has kind of become a thing.

  4. An interesting look at Europe mirrors what is beginning to happen in the US.

    The youth jobless rate has reached 58pc in Greece, 55.8pc in Spain, 39.1pc in Portugal, 36.5pc in Italy, 30.1pc in Slovakia, and 25.5pc in France, with all the known damage this does to the life-trajectory of the victims and the productive dynamism of these economies.

    Our “youth” mainly have no skills to market and the market is in the doldrums and definitely not anxious to hire while the costs of Obamacare are unknown and unsettled, the cost of energy remains high and likely to rise higher, the tax picture is muddled and government regulations keep piling up additional expense.

    The United States is fast reverting to people cobbling together several jobs in order to squeeze out the income from one good paying job which they can not find.

    Meanwhile, there is a vast undercurrent of people who settle for food stamps, rent subsidy, energy assistance and then hustle on the black market for cash in order to keep their welfare rice bowl and avoid paying taxes.

    That is the natural course of things. Gresham’s law: When it takes a fairly high income to pay the taxes and then come out just about even with living on welfare, why take the risk and bust your hump?

    And then you have the takers who are greedy for other people’s money as a “social justice” reward for just breathing and pooping.

    In my opinion, we need to crash and let the moochers sort themselves out. A multitude of hard working Wal-Mart employees will go down with the moochers and that is a rotten shame. But since the moochers are not going to be wiped out by the plague, the only other decisive calamity is economic collapse where everyone is whacked and only the productive will get up and rebuild. The rest will sit on the roadside and demand that the government come pick them up and house them and feed them because they are “victims” and they have to be served. Then they will start eating one another.

  5. Come the end of this Presidential term, they will call the Constitution racist for not giving him a third bite of the cherry.

  7. As Charles Krauthammer says, “Elections have consequences.” Any whining from these sniveling young adults will be met with the world’s smallest violin.

  8. As a postal worker I get into many brief convos throughout the day. Just before the election a young hispanic woman said, “hopefully Obama will win so he can try to do something about us having no jobs.”

    Umm… you don’t have to vote for him you know, there was a successful business man with a lifetime history of getting people to work… right?

  9. I would argue that they BENEFIT the most with no out-of-pocket cost for birth control.

  10. I have one kid in college and one about to go (she graduates this year) and I admit I worry that they are going to graduate from college with loans and have no job to repay them with.

    I often wonder why the young vote the way they do-I am not even sure it is necessarily for them about “free stuff” so much as it is they buy into the whole idea that the GOP are a bunch of hateful meanies who want to set the country backwards. Half the teenagers I know have no idea how government works, they just think the GOP are the mean people and you shouldn’t vote for them.

  19. It won’t change. Liberal states tax more-and-more, they are more-and-more in debt and they can’t vote enough liberals in. They love debt, tax, spend – nothing else explains their votes.

  21. Umm… you don’t have to vote for him you know, there was a successful business man with a lifetime history of getting people to work… right?

    You mean that evil rich guy who bought all those companies, fired all the workers and even killed a woman?! That guy??

    I often wonder why the young vote the way they do-I am not even sure it is necessarily for them about “free stuff” so much as it is they buy into the whole idea that the GOP are a bunch of hateful meanies who want to set the country backwards. Half the teenagers I know have no idea how government works, they just think the GOP are the mean people and you shouldn’t vote for them.

    I think you’re on to something there…certainly popular culture doesn’t give a positive portrayal of conservatives or Republicans, and the biggest consumers of popular culture are the 13-24 age demographic. They are the ones who tout the “Mean People Suck” mantra and Mean People are basically those who make me (or my parents) pay higher insurance rates simply because I was texting while driving and got into an accident, or tell me I shouldn’t do drugs, or that are always picking on Teh Gheys.

    It only gets worse if and when they get into college. The last phase of teenage rebellion is reinforced by academics and other students who live in their own echo chamber and foster the notion that if it feels good, why shouldn’t you do it just because someone else says ‘no’?

    In generations past, there were wars or other hardships to enable some quick growing-up. But for the past several, nothing has filled in the gap to enable that development. Short of the fiscal apocalypse, there may not be any similar “teachable moments” for the current or the next generation, either.
