I reposted/shared this article on the bookfaces.  Self explanatory and comes from a 26 year old.  Very good perspective.


This article was written by a 26 yr old college student by the name of Alyssa, who's in grad school for her MBA. 
“My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!  I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism.  I put my phone down and continue to look around.
I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook's and ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me; we live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous Nation and we've become completely blind to it.
Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don't give them a second thought.
We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty One Times!!!
Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful?
Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of Socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.  Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, "An entire generation which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America came of age and never saw American prosperity."
Never saw American prosperity?? Let that sink in.
When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I've ever heard in my 26 years on this earth.  Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.
My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity.  I know this first hand, I went to college, let's just say I didn't have the popular opinion, but I disagree. 
Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country!
People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they've never seen prosperity and, as a result, we elect some politicians who are dead set on taking steps towards abolishing Capitalism!!
Why? The answer is this, my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast!  We didn't live in the great depression or live through two World Wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War and we didn't see the rise and fall of Socialism and Communism.
We don't know what it's like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones.
We don't have a prosperity problem.  We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it's spreading like a plague."

I heard an interview today with the My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell. Trump supporter who has refused to give in to cancel culture.  His product has been taken out of numerous retailers due to the "boycotts", which I'm now hearing, don't actually exist for the most part.  

But I was blown away by the things this guy has endured since 2016, when he met Trump for the first time.  When he publicly said that he met him, not what they talked about, not anything to do with politics, only that he met the guy, he said he was hammered from the left with everything from death threats to boycotts etc.

Same thing happened after he spoke at the White House about getting God back in our lives.  

A few weeks ago, he posted something about voting fraud and the Dominion machines, and Twatter suspended him for 15 days.  While he was suspended, Twatter kept posting things from his account.  He was let back on yesterday, and when he said something again, they deleted his account permanently.

Thank you for getting rid of that “not my President” picture. I knew that you’d eventually get on the unifying train.

All kidding aside, I’m concerned that Kaos may not be willing to drink the kool aid.

So far, he really is not a very good communist.

Might get shipped to Seattle, get inoculated a few times and do some classwork but he'll eventually bend.
Good citizen's need Kohl's and Bed Bath and Beyond.

So the DOJ is finally moving against the perpetrators of election fraud and propaganda.  Arrest today.  

Wait.... what?  Hold on. 

They arrested a guy who posted MEMES in 2016 telling people they could vote by text and providing a fake number.  Memes. The dude was arrested on federal charges for Memes. 

If attempts at humor are crimes, everyone on this board is in BIG trouble.  Just saying.

If said attempt has to actually be funny, then, yes. Most of you are fucked.

All I could think when I read Lin Wood's message about this was the old saying around here "Alabama's been cheating again...poor Auburn about to go on probation."

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'
