This latest stunt (destroying a brand new I-pad for fun) seems like the natural sequel to this
Thank God, they are up and about now.
Aparently, we are not amused about that one either
The destruction of an freshly purchased iPad for no apparent reason except “because it was there” has drawn a lot of criticism. The comments at the video (below) range from:
“Proof that America’s youth is spoiled rotten. Think they would be beating this ipad to death if they had actually paid for it themselves ?”
and as for the family
It’s true, however, that the family is obviously rich. The person in question, 19-year-old Justin Kocott of Pittsburgh, PA said his family donated $10 – 15,000 to the Make a Wish Foundation in 2009. They also bought two other undestroyed iPads
I wonder where that money comes from. health insurance? Pharma? Wall Street? Unsafe mining? No matter, they obviously have too much of it.
And as for my presumption of their past accomplishments? I base it on Donna Brazile’s definition of Obama’s base
A new Democratic coalition is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don’t have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics.
This older, less affluent ex-Democrat cannot watch those spoiled brats without hearing Donna.
But maybe poor youngsters are frustrated by this
Young adults in the United States are being squeezed out of the labor force as older workers either delay retirement or seek jobs to rebuild nest eggs destroyed by the recession, a study showed on Wednesday.
yeah, that’s the ticket, let’s have a fight
“This is a troubling development, young adults are less prepared to deal with unemployment than other age groups. Without significant prior full-time work experience, many may not qualify for unemployment insurance, or the social safety net,” the EPI said.
But the AARP — a nonprofit organization focused on people 50 years and older — disagreed with the EPI study. It argued that the employment situation had deteriorated more for older workers than for their younger counterparts since the recession struck in December 2007.
I guess at this point I am glad daddy prvided an IPad for his disturbed offspring’s rage. Next time it may be one of those mean seniors stealing his job who gets it.
Now that the Heritage Foundation/Romneycare is universally celebrated as the best thing since the sliced bread, here come the savvy supporters ready for the goodies
Health care overhaul spawns mass confusion for public
“They’re saying, ‘Where do we get the free Obama care, and how do I sign up for that?’ ” said Carrie McLean, a licensed agent for eHealthInsurance.com. The California-based company sells coverage from 185 health insurance carriers in 50 states.
McLean said the call center had been inundated by uninsured consumers who were hoping that the overhaul would translate into instant, affordable coverage
Seems the creative class is in for a culture shock. I wonder what this woman thinks today?
And guess what? The article blames this confusion not on the over-selling of this crap by its proponents but…on the opposition
That widespread misconception may have originated in part from distorted rhetoric about the legislation bubbling up from the hyper-partisan debate about it in Washington and some media outlets, such as when opponents denounced it as socialism.
Bad, bad opposition! Now, I am the first to say that the cries of “socialism” are seriously confused, but why would anyone needing healthcare look for information on it from its foes?
Obama and friends repeating the falsehood that millions who didn’t get healthcare will get it now had nothing to do with this.
Wait till they find out unemployment is the new normal
Last Friday’s jobs report, read most positively, showed 112,000 jobs added to the economy in March. But that’s below the number needed simply to keep up with an expanding population. In other words, we’re actually worse off now than we were a month ago.* At the same time, the median wage of Americans with jobs keep dropping.
Maybe they should poll again support for Obama’s Romneycare after people find out it’s not free, nor in existence for years to come. (remember the urgency last December? “You don’t want sick people to die, do you?)…
I’ll let a loyal B0bot/operative to sum this up..
This country is too stupid for its president.That’s all
Indeed, country. You’ve been had.
On second thought, Ill give Chris hedges the last word:
The Democrats and their liberal apologists are so oblivious to the profound personal and economic despair sweeping through this country that they think offering unemployed people the right to keep their unemployed children on their nonexistent health care policies is a step forward.
WaPo is revealing the causes of the mine accident. The court decision weakening net neutrality is also front page news
but the real news is in Washington Times which reveals how Obama’s nuclear policy is aimed against arms control movement (I knew it!
The Obama administration’s nuclear strategy review made public on Tuesday keeps in place all strategic weapons needed to fight a nuclear war and presents only minor policy changes, a move that upset arms-control advocates who had sought major cuts in U.S. forces.
