  1. A college education was the Golden Ticket to the Greatest Generation…  Baby Boomers with a Bachelors Degree got a job, but were disposable….. Millennials need a Masters Degree to get the same job…..  AND USA is bringing in the Best and the Brightest from around the Globe to REPLACE those Above Average American College Graduates.

  2. Millennials are often regarded as lazy and entitled by baby boomers. Why? Is it because we want to be able to afford a house and get a decent wage? It honestly doesn't surprise me that a majority of the youth support socialism. The system is failing us.

  3. I started contributing to my 401(k) when I was hired in 2009. Since 2009 and now, I've only made about 10% in interest. Meanwhile the DOW has gone from 8k to 22k.
    All the gains are going to fees. It's a giant scam.
    Opt out of your 401(k) and use the money to buy index funds, and hedge with gold. You'll be better off.

  4. Are tax havens partially responsible for the great divide and how gen-x keeps getting erased from the equation? The Price We Pay was an interesting watch. The invisible social contract was broken long before most of us were even born. Following the same fiscal failures will lead further away from justice and closer to comic relief, as evidenced by the world stage.
