"Our generation is going to take the brunt of the force of the debt crisis," said Glass, a government major at St. Lawrence University in New York. "It's going to mean fewer jobs, higher interest rates, more debt.

Cry me a river!
BTW, what does one do with a major in "government?"
This generation voted for Obama. Maybe they learned a lesson.
Any gov't that does NOT live under the same laws they foist on you, just became your MASTER, and you their SERF.
You won't even miss the 25 or 50 cents you put in a FR Change Jar daily, but at the end of the month you will have at least $5 to donate so FR can operate smoothly, or you will moan and grown and go into withdrawal when it is down, because of broken parts, or over loaded servers during crisis events. And every day 0 remains in office is a crisis.

Hmmmm...the generation that voted Obama in is going to have to pay a price in quality of life? Who’d-a-guessed it?!
I opened the post to ask the same question but you had already asked it.
Well elections have consequences and this generation voted for Obama. Maybe they will think twice next time.
But the fact of the matter is that unemployment for people with bachelors degrees is a relatively modest 5.4%. So a degree still counts if you can get one without going in debt so far that you will never dig your way out.
And it is still true, as it always has been, that technical skills are more valued by the business community than your knowledge of Middle Eastern History. So these kids should stick to the computer science, engineering, accounting and health occupations and forget about the humanities as a major. You can learn that stuff on your own after you graduate if you are still interested.
Earth to generation vexed...
The size of your dream is inversely proportional to the number of progressives in government.
(Look up proportional, go back to math class...and think about it...)
Your Hope has been Redistributed. Heres your Change!
Get on the Post Office or Civil Service. You’ll always have a job and a secure pension.
Thanks boomers! Please, stop spending our money...
Hey, good thing those Boomers voted in favour of McCain? Oh wait, no they didn’t vote for him at all.
Gosh, I guess then we can’t blame the younguns. More boomers voted for Obama.
Umm, yes, but so did the Boomers. Boomers keep voting themselves to the trough.
Again, more Boomers voted for Obama, than did the young folks. He couldn’t have got elected without them.
my neighbors kids with kids are moving back home with the parents/grandparents. this pres is worse than j carter. I at that age held onto my job and made it.
My kids, one is working, one is in college. I am laid off, 15 months, my husband is on disability 9 months. things are not good for much of the people here.
What I do notice is all minotires are working. White people out of work Where I was laidoff, they kept all the minorities and laid me off.
Do you think that the chart might be a minor clue as to the higher unemployment rate of African-Americans?
BTW, what does one do with a major in “government?”
One becomes a taxpayer funded parasite.That’s what one becomes.
Isn’t that rich? A “government major” whose sole ambition in life is to get on the public dole in order to impose more regulations and laws on business that will further diminish our national prospects — complaining about our national prospects.
That college is not succeeding with teaching critical thinking skills, is it?
Remember when people said that writing all this debt was mortgaging the next generation? Well, now the next generation is this generation.
They wanted things to change, they voted for change..
Young people used to be able to get jobs, things certainly have changed!
Yep. My 60-something boomer parents who have voted Republican their entire lives plan on voting for Obama. Reason? They're afraid Republicans will cut off their free health care (that they didn't need when they were younger, employed and voting Republican).
People who believe that there's no way Obama can get re-elected might want to think of voters like my parents. There are millions more just like them.
