... So what do kids usually say. "Daddy, when I grow up, I want to languish in middle management."?

I don't know about you, but the kids I grew up with always said they wanted to be firemen (SOCIALIST!), policemen (SOCIALIST!), teachers (SOCIALIST!), doctors (occasionally somewhat SOCIALIST!), and ninja turtles (private sector, but probably some sort of welfare recipient).

I can't speak for "most," since I only know a few, but the youngsters I know all work very hard - six and seven days a week - none live with their parents, and one 22 year old is raising his family, very successfully.

How can you say "most?" You must know millions of young people. How on earth do you find time to post nonsense on an internet forum?

Exactly.

If you know it all Repub and Irish. Tell me how we are supposed to live off 7.40 an hour.

And in addition to that, can Irishguard finally tell me how I am less than a human?

Daddy, when I grow up I want to be a bureaucrat

Warning!

I was recently cautioned by counsel helping me with my claims against the Government to not refer to one of the bureaucrats in the case as a bureaucrat, because the judge would interpret the term as a pejorative that would be politically incorrect.

BTW, idahogie, I'm still awaiting your response where you accused me of a crime a few days ago.

When are you going to provide it?

This thread is sooo stupid that there are no words for it.

Lack of work ethics? HAH. You dont see it, do you? People of my generation and how hard they work despite the struggling economy.
Generation Y kids who had hovering "helicopter parents" dictating to teachers what could be taught to their children and what kind of punishment their kids could receive, had bathrooms at home larger than their dorm rooms in college, and suffer from the ME ME ME complex will NEVER compare to the entrepreneurial spirit of previous generations who know what it means to work hard and EARN what you have. NEVER

I don't disagree with you. It's a crying shame that it turned out that way.
