Shame-Out: teenagers Everywhere are Stupid

Mrs. Dobyasyouwouldbedoneby says:

Teenagers are teenagers. To me, this means they are all brain dead.

Doesn't matter where they live, they ALL get stupid ideas:

Case in Point:
Polwat Chino, was said to have had an a-ha moment, and wondered if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the Grand Theft Auto.

After he confessed to killing the (REAL-LIFE) cab-driver, the game's distributor in Asia, directed all of its stores in Thailand to pull the popular video game.

Thanks to the NYTimes for catching this beauty!


OK, you wanted a Political discussion: Here goes.

The background I believe that:
* It's going to be as BAD as the last one.
* According to Robert Reich (former Sec'y of Labor under Clinton): The only number that he EVER saw, defining the
depression was that the unemployment rate hovered around 25%.
* We need a new deal.
* After 58 years of NO Health Care Reform (since 1950!) it will FINALLY be coming soon...
* We've managed to WASTE a FULL generation (from Zero to thirty) with decaying social, educational, and interpersonal skills.
* Our nation is no longer DOING (producing) anything.
SO, from these few premises, I have extrapolated a great deal of items to FIX our society...

We need to make sure that a number of issues are resolved ALL at once.
If we don't do them ALL at once, its like juggling three RUNNING chain saws, but dropping one!

Here's what I came up with:

We need to do the FOLLOWING to FIX our Society:
* Create A Living Wage
* Create a National Single payer Healthcare
* Create a National 3-4 year draft (or alternate service)
* Create a Federally paid Day Care starting at six months
* Implement Tax Reform on the ULTRA Rich
* Lobbying (Political Reform)
* Education
* Infrastructure (road /bridge/Systems repairs)
* Lack of Training/futures
* Truth and Reconcilliation Commission
* A new "Manhattan" project, focusing on Energy INDEPENDENCE
