Republican: Kids today are so spoiled... smartphones, computers, a college education...
Riiight…..and Republicans like to kill Grandma and baby kittens.
Why did you have a student write a sentence like that? Don’t you know that is impossible?
The GOP is always disappointed when the ‘little people’ learn how to read and write and think for ourselves. It’s harder to manipulate a connected and educated populace.
Good thing that ‘education’ in Louisianna no longer has to conflict with your childhood superstitions.
GOP believes in the labor movement of the pre-Civil war South- work hard, work for nothintg, and know your place!
…and the gift that keeps on giving: $50,000 in student loans.
…Ima is correct…kids should know there proper place..behind the micrphone at Taco bell…
@lma“Not being forced into military through draft.”
No, force them into the military by not giving them an education or job opportunity.
My folks (and I) worked to pay all my older brother’s costs when he went to college, he got a “free ride”. He was the first in the family to get a degree. After he got out and got a good job, my dad, who’d had another heart attack and couldn’t work, asked him for a loan, because “he owed us”. My brother’s response was, “YOU OWED ME A COLLEGE EDUCATION”, and he refused to loan my folks any money.
That brother was an “arch conservative” and ultra-Republcan, who always cussed taxes, and NEVER worked on anything other than government contracts for “private corporations” in aerospace and Defense.
I earned the second degree in the family (a couple actually) and worked all through school to pay my own way, with a stipend from VA on the G.I. Bill, that at least paid most of my rent, but nothing more.
The point being, I literally EARNED my degrees, while my brother, the “conservative” was handed a silver spoon, not unlike Mitt. Ryan also went to college with money from Social Security survivor benefits, he would now reduce, or cancel completely.
Yes, “spoiled” has been going on for some time. Republican politics have also spoiled in the last three decades, and the stench is becoming, unbearable for “the masses”.
It is a waste of time. Ima actually gets off on being insulted. If he ever contributes anything with any substance, that’s the time to respond, but it hasn’t happened yet, and I’m not holding my breath.
Ima: I “hate” stupidity, but not people, even those I may dislike, sometimes intensely, because THEY hate and abuse others who “differ” from them. When people were trying to kill me, on nearly a daily basis, I learned something, I didn’t “hate” them either, because, well, I was in THEIR country, killing them, so, who had “valid reason” for hate???
cjr53; no, he died three years ago from a stroke, which the bill for several days of intensive care, helicopter flights, etc, was all picked up by his Medicare, and “private” insurance also subsidized by the government; many thousands of dollars.
Given his “political propensities”, he probably would have been one to “opt out” under the Ryan proposal, and his widow might have lost everything to pay off the bills after his death. Yes, that IS something folks need to think about.
