One week ago today, Americans were in the heat of battle with our annual food fight known as Thanksgiving.
One week ago today University of Texas at Austin journalism professor Robert Jensen had yet to post his anti-American rant “No Thanks for Thanksgiving”.
And while one week ago today liberals were just as annoying and antithetical to the American way of life as founded as they are today, one week ago there was yet to be known two bits of news regarding the under 30 generation that speaks volumes of its ignorance of the dangers of government.
The first comes from the PewResearchCenter and provides the proof to support what I’ve been saying for almost four decades: The “dumbing down” of the American public education system would eventually be the doom of our democracy.
Enter the latest report showing that while Mitt Romney carried voters OVER 30, Dear Giver in Chief, carried the UNDER 30 crowd by 24 points. (60% to 36%). Allowing one Barack Hussein Obama to handily beat back the candidate of responsibility and living within our means.
Ok, ok Caldwell, big deal. We all know the young crowd has always been firmly entrenched up Obama’s butt so what’s the big surprise?
The surprise isn’t in that the lil blissfully ignorant ones voted for their “fair and just” government hero.
The surprise isn’t in that in so voting for Obama, they also greatly increased the odds that the worst piece of legislation to be put upon the populace since prohibition, Obamacare, would continue to roll towards full implementation.
The surprise, at least to them anyway, is just how much that vote is going to COST them.
Below is the first paragraph to Chris Conover’s piece Young People Under Obamacare: Cash Cow For Older Workers:
It’s official: the health care law will unduly stick it to young Americans by making them pay far higher premiums starting January 1, 2014. New rules announced this month are even worse than expected when it comes to shoveling an unfair burden onto our nation’s youth. Moreover, they also perversely increase the incentives of young people to remain uninsured.
Yep, you read it right. All those “I could give a rat’s ass about those old white guys in wigs and their outdated view of government” little darlings just got one giant screwing by the very same government they demanded “do more” for them.
In brief, the new “government is so great” rules will lead to drastically higher health insurance premiums for younger Americans to compensate for the mandated lower rates for older Americans. (Too bad all those great and all knowing professors you adored didn’t bother to educate you on the “law of unintended consequences” regarding government meddling in private affairs.)
For any of you young libs lurking about still gloating over your Dear Leader’s victory, I suggest you use your 21st century dictionary, Google, and type in this one word: IRONY.
Read carefully its definition and you’ll understand why this old white guy and his new BFF, one John Galt, are laughing their butts off right now.
While I do feel bad for the 36% of under 30 voters who voted with their brains instead of their parts and will have to pay along with their ignorant brethren, I take solace in the fact that America as founded still has 36% willing to fight for her.
And I have the utmost faith that they will not let the “year of the Fluke”, be the defining year of their generation.
Because when it’s all said and done those old white guys in wigs will turn out to be a helluva lot smarter than “cool” could was.
