    This sums up today's youth

    Here's your American youth of today. We're all just bit actors in the plays they star in every day.

    I side with the old men Gordon Keith.com

    This punk thinks that he was wronged?

    LOL, wow.

    They were probably inspired by the movie "Jackass", where they screw with some guys who are golfing with an airhorn. In that one, one man starts hitting balls into the woods at them.

    Me, I probably would have laughed it off as a prank, but I can see where a serious golfer would have been ticked off. The punk's outrage was stupid... he should have realized that when you **** with people, they may **** you back.

    Also, don't piss off old men. They tend to use weapons.

    Yep, the prank was kind of funny until the kid went PMS over his toy. If he would have just laughed it off and apologized, the old man would have probably calmed down, but no, he had to confront him, and basically got punked himself.

    I'm not defending the kids, but you expect the kids to be mature and hel calm down the adults?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So some kids being idiots, and moving a golf ball 8 feet is cause for the guy to take a swing at them with a golf club? Yeah, I don't think so. What the kids did was stupid, but if that guy made contact, he could be facing jail time.

    Actually, aside from hitting the RC car, he didn't start swinging the club until the punk got in his face with an attitude, which is often a prelude to assault.

    Also I don't know if these were really "kids". They looked college age to me, young adults... and ought to be responsible for their own behavior by then. Ought to be...

    I agree with the old men up to the point of them swing the gold club at the youths.

    That crossed a line

    The damaging of the RC was fine and justifiable in my opinion

    I would have hit him with the club when he ran up and claimed self defense.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
