“How entitled these little punks are blaming everyone but themselves for the decisions they made. I'm not surprised that people in their 20's live with their parents; two peas in a pod.”

“Is he worried that there is SO much work to get done in Maine that there aren't enough qualified adults to do it?

12 year olds are baby sitting and cutting lawns/shoveling snow. Unless.... his evil plan is to turn Maine into a GAP, Nike sweat shop.”

“the reporting of rapes have increased by 45%, not the actual number of rapes as that would take a different metric to determine.

you are right, something is amiss in the military. i suspect it's the fact that rape goes unpunished, or, at a minimum, under reported.”

“celler... the military is a job just like every job you go to and get paid. i work with men all day and they are not going around raping women.
rape should not be an expectation of co-mingling the sexes.”

“tiger, let's assume they separate the sexes... rape is happening within relationships, marriages etc. it's hard to believe, but it's true. being in the military does not mean you different from other human beings. a rapist doesn't worry about geography/job title.”

Tigerteeth on Nov 7, 2013 at 15:38:41

“The fact is rapes have nearly doubled in the military but not in these other areas.  Something is amiss in the military and I suspect its men and women in close quarters for long periods of time and away from their spouses, etc.”

“seems to me that all the talking they are doing isn't working if more people are reporting rapes. sometimes it feels like the military spends more time raping people then they do training them to do their jobs. hardly an hour of the work day goes by when someone isn't raped in the miltary. This IS gettting ridiculous.”

“in the end, 20-somethings have led a life where everyone is a winner, everyone gets a trophy. The result is that they have not built up a resilency based on failure, and, therefore, have unrealistic expectations of adult life. Sure, they are going to miserable when they input less and expect more on other side..”

“First, you have no idea what generation I'm from. Second, filling kids with the idea that they are so fantastic just sets them up for unrealistic expectations of what it means to be an adult in any economy. I'm sympathetic to those entering the workforce, however, not sympathetic to their incessent need for hand holding. Anyone who is 26 y.o. has 40 more years to work and build their wealth. Translation: learn to take responsibility for yourself.”

kishiknows on Oct 29, 2013 at 12:36:00

“filling kids with the idea they're fantastic... and again, which generation is to blame for that?
we're the generation that connected the world with social media. our generation has more millionaires than generations past and those millionaires give more to charity and make bigger purchases, thus injecting the economy with more revenue, than their baby boomer counterparts.
there's lazy people in every generation but for the most part, the youth want the opportunity to work for a living.... there's just no opportunities available. can't exactly take responsibility when there's not a way to.”

“20-somethings will never be happy. They grew up hearing they were so great/awesome/smart/ beautiful, that when they entered their first job they started to realize that the world owes them nothing! Now they're sad..... They are incapable of delayed gratification. 30 years from now we're going to hear about how tough they had it...they'll probably still be living with their parents. Grow up, move forward, adjust your perception of reality to the new normal: adult life is not all validation from others and getting a trophy for showing up. 20-somethings are going to have to work, hard, just like the rest of us.”

“Boomers were raised to believe truth and justice was the American Way. What a shock that was when we finally bumped into reality.”

“Your critique may be valid for 30-somethings who mistakenly thought that life was going to be as good for them as for their parents' generation, but 20-somethings know full well that they're entering a blighted economic landscape.”

“translation:
"our generation raised their children to be special snowflakes and were shocked when their children actually believed them. how dare they be upset that our generation destroyed the economy for them. so ungrateful"
maybe you should read the proof in the article before claiming our generation has it *exactly* like yours did.”

“The Republicans need to get a handle on things out there in right wing land. The Tea Party continuously puts forth bad candidates under the 'R' , and, now, it has come to represent all Republicans in a shameful way. I don't think all Republicans are bad legislators. When their form of communcation is to "fight" their way through Congress it shows poor intellect and an ever lacking ability to have professional discourse.

Like the Democrats, the true Republicans should take a hard look at how they frame their issues, because they will all start to eat each others arms off come election time. Why are we, as a country, voting for these low class angry Tea Partiers?”

“Just using the word "fight" should tell the Republicans more than they need to know about how things are getting done around Washington. Going to Congress is more than fighting for/against certain things you want and don't want. How narrow minded are these people? No wonder Mississippi is in the condition it's in. To be in the company of the best of the worst is no place to hang out.”
