    even before the latest recession, we saw the increasing expansion of adolescence into what we consider "adulthood". across human history, a 26 year old has been considered a fully independent adult, likely raising multiple children, but now he's a child himself? fully thirteen percent of American "men" age 25-34 lived with their parents, and the wide majority of 25 year olds weren't married.

    furthermore, 18-34 year olds spend more time playing video games than minors. Nielson ran a study and found out that roughly half of all men in that age group racked up an average of two hours and forty three minutes of gaming every day.

    What could a socialist possibly have in common with any American the believes in the Constitution? Nothing. You sit there addressing all these issues in this country, when you basically would like to distroy our way of life.

    Can a socialist be a citizen of the United States? If so he/she has the same 1st Amendment rights that any citizen has. Would you have questioned his right to an opinion if he was a republican?

    I had many a Republican question MY right to exist, all because I opposed the war in Iraq. Got into an argument over that war one night at a gig I was playing. He called me a Communist, so I kicked his ass. True story.

    I saw no statistics comparing the narcissism of the boomer generation and our generation. I don't know who the "millennial" are (what age group are they supposed to be?) and the researcher did not provide any study to back up his claim that it's the parent who are at fault. He said the cause is complicated and then produce a "hunch".

    And why should I search anything for you, when it's not my claim and I don't know what you have in your mind to make you claim that our generation is narcissistic and expect to be praised just for showing up as a result of the Boomer generation? Whether Boo agrees with you or not has no impact here.

    Do you see yourself as narcissistic and expect to be praised just for showing up and that's why you generalise this personal opinion of yourself to a whole generation?
