Funny things begin to happen when young graduates break the string from their so-called professors, I tend to think of them as indoctrinators. Think about it, especially at the most expensive schools who is doing the brainwashing? There is an old saying, “Those that can, do, those that can’t teach. This would not necessarily apply to primary, middle school and high school.
From a fact sheet on the Crossroads Generation Website
The Super PAC American Crossroads has teamed up with the Young Republican National Federation and the Republican State Leadership Committee to produce a spinoff super PAC known as Crossroads Generation. That group launched a social-media initiative this week to “reach, persuade, and mobilize young voters for change in the 2012 elections.”
So these you folks are now filled with the reality as they march forward into the night, that what they learned if it were in the soft sciences like; sociology, philosophy, female studies, African or Hispanic-American studies psychology, and political science, depending on the tilt of the faculty. They are not prepared to hit the streets running as the saying goes.
Talk about the blind leading the unknowing.
As this demographic begins rapidly slipping away from Obama, so it goes for California’s 79-year-old matriarch of the U.S. Senate. As they begin to find that their degrees will not provide them with meaningful employment, forcing many to move back home, it sets in.
The no longer favor, the liberal ideology of the liberal senator from San Francisco, view her as to old and out of touch. They are seeking real leadership desperate for new leadership. By happenstance they were given the word about Elizabeth Emken, younger, and significantly more qualified than Senator Feinstein. See Elizabeth’s qualifications here. As they compare and contrast the backgrounds of the two they have decided to vote for Elizabeth and are telling their friends to do so as well.
The have begun to understand what is meant by the slogan, “TOO WRONG 4 “TOO LONG” as Mrs. Feinstein’s out dated ideas are no longer in sync with theirs.
All of the nice sounding tax and spend policies of Dianne Feinstein and the democrats have temporarily destroyed their futures. All the feel good fluff doesn’t seem to make any sense when they are the ones now pulling the wagon, paying for welfare benefits and food stamps when the finally find a minimum wage job.
They will soon learn that Republicans who they were told, were for the most part “evil” are nothing of the sort. They believe in providing a safety net for those incapable of taking care of themselves, but they will cut waste, fraud and abuse within the government to do so.
Those keeping in touch with their college friends who have found the beginning of a meaningful career remember that they were members of the College Republicans who were taught that “leaders” like Diane Feinstein have not been willing to tackle touch issues but have been kicking them down the road.
The Web site for this group shows a number of videos featuring young adults who complain about various ways in which their quality of life has deteriorated during President Obama’s time in office. It also includes a fact sheet with 11 negative claims, five of which they have listed above.
The goal for Crossroads Generation is clear: peel away some of the youth voters who supported Obama so strongly in the 2008 election. We examined the source information for some of the group’s claims to determine whether they painted an accurate picture.
The unemployment rate for Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 was indeed 11.6 percent in April, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. (Note: compiling this data requires multiple queries, since the BLS does not track the 18- to 29-year-old demographic by itself.)
Crossroads Generation seems to be pointing out that the unemployment rate is exceptionally high for young adults. After all, the overall unemployment rate has remained below 9 percent since October 2011, and it never reached higher than 10.6 percent even during the recession. (See the facts below)
