So if college loan debt EXCEEDS credit card debt, and 45% aged 18-29 are not working...

The community activism worked out great... didn't it? It's kind of like Woodstock... er Woodstock 99. Thanks hippies. Thanks for taking the advice of Yoko Ono. Peace!

(h/t ibloga) CNN: In 2008, the youth vote helped sweep Barack Obama into office. Americans 18-29 spread the word on social media, energized fundraising and went to the polls. In 2012, the youth vote is moving on and throwing those omnipresent “Hope” bumper stickers and t-shirts in garbage bins.Not because of apathy. Not because another candidate generates more enthusiasm. Not because of his character. Not because they think voting is pointless. The 18-29 vote is up for grabs in 2012 because youth can’t afford cars to put bumper stickers on and those t-shirts are worn out from too many days sitting on the couch unemployed. The sobering reality: just 55.3 percent of Americans between 16 and 29 have jobs. And earlier this year, Americans’ student loan debt surpassed credit card debt for the first time ever. Rather than develop a lasting initiative to help young unemployed Americans, the President launched “Greater Together” – a campaign tool that offers community forums rather than jobs. Rather than provide a bailout to those crushed by the burden of educational loans, his student debt relief program was pathetic – only reducing interest rates by a measly 0.5 percent. No wonder less than half of Americans 18-29 approve of Obama.
....yeah... thanks hippies. thanks for all the "Activism". Thanks for keeping your youth occupied... might be nice to pay us or we will kill you. You want to know what youth do who have nothing but community activism? well... um... Hie Dee Ho! They start raping your daughters! oh... won't the feminists on the left be pleased... and that will of course will lead to a Leftist Police state full of feminine hysteria. Oh,,, but the ladies are the one segment of the population who have jobs because of the service sector. The vaginas will be doing just fine... if they can make it to work without getting raped. Oh, and those police officers that they hire to keep the youth from raping the laides... oh... they are corrupt and cheat on you. sigh... it will make monogamy completely unsustainable... and that will lead to more panic... and fear. And of course you will blame a blogger like me and ship me off to Washington State for pointing out the reality here.... but nothing to see here. nothing at all. move along...
