It makes no difference if the victims are disproportionately any group; it would have to be UNIQUE to that group. Otherwise, if it's bad for people, it's bad for people, and no distinction need be made about age, gender or any other subgroup. It's not equality if we only consider some of the people, is it?

It's cute that you think it works that way. Guarantee'd if it was predominantly men, or hell even an equal split, that suffered from this.. not even Franken would care.

But most people I have worked with become useful and resourceful in their early 30's, not at the age of 22.

This isn't about the age of the individual, but the complete failure of the higher education system. Raises the question what the fuck you're actually paying for too. *That's* the real end of college: the value derived isn't worth the pricetag any longer.

the stock market, actually, makes a shit litmus test for the health of the economy anymore. At least in a vacuum. Why? Because the entire market is overvalued thanks to a supply gap of securities created by 401k plans. The government has blessed the market as *the* retirement savings vehicle of the middle class, and now there aren't enough securities to meet the demand that this has created.

Really? Your own family attacked you with a crowbar? Then smashed your windshield with it, then rammed your car with a pickup truck? And they did it because you are a straight, middle class, right handed white male? Do you filter any of the diarrhea that dribbles out of your mouth at all?

No, liberals did. And your final sentence is indicative of just the oppression I've been first to suffer for being born this way.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
