    Joanie must wonder how Elizabeth Warren can advocate for a younger generation just as indifferent to domestic as they are to political discipline. They know Wall Street is the enemy, but do they see the connection between Wall Street and their credit card?

    That’s why I’m a bit conflicted about this whole business. You can’t blame big bizniss for being grubby when the I gotta have it right now generation comes swaggering through the door with their sweaty plastic filled mitt. what happened to setting up a separate account for a target purchase the way people set up a Christmas account… or used to ?

    Most of them lost their credit cards when Mom and Dad refused to pay the bills.

    C’mon Alex, you know your failure to pick up the place was deliberate. And Gram, you know you’re looking for an excuse to stay elsewhere.

    Youthful idealism is a powerful transformative force acting on civilizations.

    …when Mom and Dad lost the ability to keep up with the bills.

    Slowly working our way to a cashless, plastic society. Keep poking fun at these demonstrators. Recent history has proven that you don’t have to be right to be blelieved as long as you are persistant.

    Am I the only one who thinks of pasta every time Zuccotti Park is mentioned?

    Every time Zucchini Park is mentioned I think about squash.

    Bridging the generation gap is always tough.
    And yeah, people with discipline…or whatever…are a LOT neater about everything than I am. Everything.

    Love ain’t enough. I’ve been loved a lot. Lucky that way.
    And yet…maybe the only way I can be independent is to be messy enough the tight-a**d ones can’t stand it.

    Kind of like Huck Finn. Gotta light out when they want to civilize you…

    Oh, give me a break. You have no idea how it is for cllege students these days based on that nonsensical statement.

    A blanket condemnation of the OWS movement is nonsensical. Claiming it is all unemployed, lazy youth also displays ignorance. I’ve been to the events and have found people of all ages, well-employed, including teachers, lawyers, laborers, even bankers who’ve acknowledged that things are not working as they now are. But then, I seem to remember similar wholesale contempt for civil rights activists.

    Looking at the mess in Alex’s apartment tells me that she is a hoarder.

    Here in the 18th century, tradesmen were always willing to extend credit to college students because they knew that, in the end, the parents were going to have to make good the debts, and college was pretty much confined to the sons of the wealthy. Further, by indulging the students now, the tradesmen often gained loyal customers for later.

    A few years ago I read of a problem of credit card companies handing out cards to college students to get them into the habit of using their cards, and getting them caught up in the debt cycle. I suppose that’s not so common now, now that a college education is not so readily going to get you a job.

    Betting on the probability of future earnings is an American tradition. But this is the first generation of young folk in America who are not doing as well as their parents did at their age, and have no expectation of living as well as their parents did.
