Young Americans to pay for their Obama votes

December 26, 2012

“Permanently Depressed”:

“This generation will be permanently depressed and will be on a lower path of income for probably all of their life — and at least the next 10 years,” says Rutgers professor Cliff Zukin, a senior research fellow at the university’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. Professionals who start out in jobs other than their first choice tend to stay on the alternative path, earning less than they would have otherwise while becoming less likely to start over again later in preferred fields, Zukin says.

Michael Greenstone, who was chief economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers in 2009 and 2010, says the shift to a downwardly mobile society may be lasting. “Children are not earning as much as their parents, and I think we’re laying the seeds for that to continue into the future,” he says.

Only one-fifth of those who graduated college since 2006 expect greater success than their parents, a Rutgers survey found earlier this year. Little more than half were working full time. Just one in five said their job put them on a career path.

    I hope the pain is unbearable and lasts a lifetime.

    Suffer greatly.

      Conservatives burned the fields when they advanced under Bush/Cheney, and burn the fields in retreat under Obama.

      Conservatives gave themselves sole right to define what is America, and wish it all destroyed when America says to them, “Uh, no”.

        You really ought to get some counseling for that…

        You and your trog friends will enjoy your obama chains.

  2. The Exposer on December 26, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    They’re already making US suffer for their idiocy.

  3. ip727 on December 26, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    They sowed the bullshit, let them reap the crap sandwich.

        Liberals/Idiots like “TR”, above, somehow believe that the 2trillion per Bush term destroyed the country — but that 0bama’s reckless 6Trillion in his first term will magically fix everything. Sheesh, what a moron!

        The left is comprised of nothing but a bunch of self-deluded hypocrites who only want to live in their delusional little fantasylands while lashing out at anyone who dares to disturb them with any matters of actual reality.

      Not in your dream world, it’s obammer’s baby now.

      • The Trolls on December 26, 2012 at 11:11 pm

        Your dream world is lived out in the comments sections of multiple far right wing fringe blogs.

        Your twilight years are bitter.

        • ip727 on December 27, 2012 at 6:57 am

          Keep drinking that marxist kool aid comrade.

  5. SteveP on December 26, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    I’m glad that the greatest pain and hardship will be borne by those who gave the communists the greatest support.
    They impoverished me and robbed me of my ability to retire.
    May they die in fire.

    • The Trolls on December 26, 2012 at 11:03 pm

      Conservatives whine about tax and spend when they aren’t in power, and are lulled to sleep by no tax and spend when they are in power.

      Big babies either way.

      • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 7:16 am

        …Said the guy who thinks Obama gonna pay his mortgage?

  6. Earl on December 26, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    The funny part is most of these morons don’t even have a clue about whats in store for them. When I retire in a few years, I will enjoy taking their money and spending it on frivolous things, while they struggle to make ends meet under a burdensome tax policy. They voted for it, they own it. And BTW, TR you can blame it on whomever you want, doesnt mean a thing really. But right now its your guy whose doing the borrowing, so enjoy paying it back. As for me, I’ll become a taker…’s that for karma? Embrace it assholes!

    • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 7:25 am

      Sentiment is 9/10; but language is a bad example for the useful idiots… 😉

  7. Ripley on December 27, 2012 at 2:14 am

    permanently depressed

    And the last time the US was that way, what did it do? In the 1930’s it elected FDR and Dems. So, I don’t see much hope.

    • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 7:20 am

      The economy may be permanently depressed; but some of us just see it as the price of taking God out of public schools… (Read Romans 1:18-32, 2 Peter 3, etc.)

      • Haverwilde on December 27, 2012 at 8:26 am

        No, it is not taking God out of schools, it is taking responsibility out of government.
        Bush made a lot of mistakes, sure; but the corruption of the current administration, and the total lack of responsible governance is destroying this once great nation.
        And the left applauds it.

        • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 9:29 pm

          Seriously. Read Romans 1:18-32, 2 Peter 3, etc.

  8. Hera on December 27, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    They voted for this incompetent twice. Let them reap what the have sown.

    • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 9:32 pm

      I would be okay with that, except it affects some young people I like…

  9. ip727 on December 27, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Their joy of victory will turn to ashes in their mouths.

    • Setnaffa on December 27, 2012 at 9:31 pm

      Pol Pot and Che killed all the liberal effete whenever they gained power. Basically hated them worse than they did the Capitalists…

      • KevPB on December 28, 2012 at 1:57 am

        Yes – Facts that the liberal left are too willfully ignorant to acknowledge. The liberal left cannot grasp that they are the pawns and useful-idiots of something far more sinister than ‘capitalism’.

        This is why we know that the FOOLS who ignore the mistakes made throughout history are doomed to repeat them.

  10. The Trolls on December 28, 2012 at 5:58 am

    The GOP whiners just want to burn it all down.

    The nation is held hostage by a Tea Party fringe that had its 15 minutes a long ime ago.

    Get over it.

    • ip727 on December 28, 2012 at 11:35 am

      Enjoy it while you can numbnuts

    • Earl on December 28, 2012 at 12:43 pm

      Its not about whining moron. You redistributionists worked yourselves up into an orgasmic frenzy over taxing the rich. But since taxing the rich will only run the country for 9 days, you kool aide drinkers will ultimately have to pay all this spending back. Its simple math. Most of you are just too stupid to have figured it out yet.

      • KevPB on December 29, 2012 at 8:24 am

        Like I said, the liberal idiots are nothing but self-deluded hypocrites who hide in their little fantasyland while lashing out at anyone who confronts them with matters of actual reality.

        “the trolls” above is the perfect example of an unhinged liberal idiot who is not only delusional, but also lashing out against people who are only trying to get the nation to confront the reality that their spending lusts are simply unsustainable.

        Typical self-deluded liberal moron.

    • Evan3457 on December 28, 2012 at 5:55 pm

      Wow. You really are quite stupid, aren’t you?

    • Gonions on December 29, 2012 at 6:55 pm

      Hey Dude, last think I knew your man was in control and has been the last four years. He is spending like a drunk George Bush and somehow your mentally challenged bunch does not get it. Isn’t’ it Obama’s idea that you spend until it collapses then do what you want after that? You guys are totally detached from reality. Some of us are fine with the tax increases but it also had to be accompanied by spending cuts, which your man is unwilling to concede to. Hey, Bush went out four years ago. The new spenders in chief are Barack Obama, Harry Reid and the Democratic party. You can’t deny that and the younger generation of illiterate youth will pay for it. The only thing between this country and financial oblivion is a Republican House that keeps pushing for cuts in entitlements. Barack doesn’t want that because that is how he does hi Banana Republic vote buying.

      By the way, why don’t you tell us ignorant Republicans whether or not you are in favor of cutting entitlements. Are you?

      • Earl on December 30, 2012 at 7:52 am

        We can no longer save these morons from their own stupidity. They belive you can borrow a trillion plus dollars a year forever and nothing will come of it. The handouts will always be there. Its time we let them reap the harsh spoils of their ignorance.
