Oh, Boy! Yippee! We are so excited about this! (not)
Is it good that millenials are coming of age? Or is it just that they are getting older? I go with the 2nd choice.
It has been reported, truthfully I believe, that millenials are the most self-centered, needy, socialist, under-experienced group in a very very long time. This is the group whose parents were called helicopter parents for failing to allow their kids to experience life, whose parents forced laws to be passed requiring ALL kids to wear bike helmets as an example. These are the kids who have been taught that 'white privilege' is a real thing, and believe that the solution is to tear down non-minorities instead of build up minorities. These are the kids who have been taught that man-made global climate change is a real thing. These are the kids who are going to decide on policies based on false premise. These are the kids who believe kids coming up after them should also be protected from life. These are the kids who were given participation trophies and taught that there are no winners in child-hood activities. Will they accept legislation that promotes the 'no winners, no losers' fallacy? Will these be the 'leaders' who believe stealing income from 'the wealthy' to give to 'the poor', as in a universal basic income, is the right way to solve poverty? If so, will they have the where-with-all to look at history to see that hand-outs haven't worked ANY WHERE IN THE WORLD for over half a century? Or will they rely on what they were taught in public schools, and cause us all to fail? Socialism has it's own destruction built in. Socialism is a system that can not survive, regardless of which liberal is in control. Will these 'coming of age' millenials be willing to accept this or are their minds already closed to alternative ideas? Based on college campuses refusing to allow diverse opinion or thought, I doubt many of these millenials have open minds or the ability to accept new ideas or facts. Like most libs, are these millenials automatically offended by facts?
As for the socialist from New York, she has demonstrated way too often that she is clueless. She spews good liberal/socialist talking points, with no idea what it really means, how it's implemented, or that there is a REAL cost to every wacky idea she spews. The socialist from New York proves how inexperienced and under-educated, fact-hating, some of the coming-of-agers truly are. I don't wish her or any of these millenials any bad luck, but I hope they fail miserably, and they are defeated for their failures in the next election. But, then, many of them will be groomed by the ever-wacky Nancy as House leader, so there may not be too much hope for them!
There are SOME good millenials, but they are few & far between. Too many of them are whiners, which explains why they are Democrats/socialists!
