SIGH

Sigh:

The American Dream is impossible to achieve in this country.
So say nearly 6 in 10 people who responded to CNNMoney’s American Dream Poll, conducted by ORC International. They feel the dream — however they define it — is out of reach.

Young adults, age 18 to 34, are most likely to feel the dream is unattainable, with 63% saying it’s impossible. This age group has suffered in the wake of the Great Recession, finding it hard to get good jobs.

The worst part is that they’re largely correct. It doesn’t have to be that way, but for now it most certainly is.

I think some of the problem of "good" jobs are always presumed desk jobs so 4 yr college is usually pushed for jobs that aren't in the area the person lives. Trade schools are pushed as a last resort for the kids who didn't seem to do that well in school, but a lot of the people who went though those have awesome jobs or are working in their field using what they trained for. Meanwhile their class mate who made strait A's and has a degree in anything with arts is a waiter.

Sadly, you are probably right. That generation are the future, and the future doesn't look very promising.

Not shedding many tears for "young adults" who voted for this BS in droves.

Better think twice about that. The sad fact is that if they continue to believe this, they'll vote for straight up communism before taking a chance on the free market. We've got about 10 years, maximum, to give them a taste of success under capitalism before they do it in permanently...

Don't kid yourself. Those who can, will, no matter what. Those who can't are a lost generation of producitivity and advancement.

Welcome to the 60s, part 2.
