    Kids!!! What’s the Matter with Kids Today!???


Hi again Ex,

I limited my criticism to people who clearly don't need a job, pigging out at the employment trough. It would be pretty darned cruel to suggest people who need income not work or quit work to make way for someone else.

My husband is a journalist by training. He has started a non-profit and we are planning to donate around 15% of our income and much of our time, to it.  

In the last two or three years I have spent maybe 2000.00 in total, on myself. I cut my own hair and could fit everything I own, besides furniture, in two trash bags.  Seeing as I'm not working I can be a bit of a slob and am able to do much of my clothes shopping at second hand stores. 

In that same time period my husband and I gave close friends over 5,000.00 to help them out. We also helped a couple of kids who would have ended up homeless, by providing them with a place to live AND a little walking around money until they landed on their feet. 

After my husband had a heart attack about 3 years ago, he spent his recovery time volunteering for Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth. 

Believe me, my husband and I ARE trying our best to create the kind of world we want to live in.  


I hear you about some of the intellectual  deficits that computers have helped to create. But I really do think that so many young people just think differently. They have attributes that we don't have. They certainly don't interact in the same way we do. I'll concede the point. Maybe we are devolving. I just don't know. I don't have a sense of that.
