It would help if more younger people voted. But yes, when you look at the welfare spending breakdown, it is an issue.

I don't suppose you +- wife want to go and see Wozzeck?. I'd like to but not Mrs. H.'s thing.

The press and the young by ucblockhead (4.00 / 2) #3 Wed May 15, 2013 at 06:14:40 PM EST
The US press is full of articles about dumb students thinking the world owes them a living.

It has always been like that.

UK housing policies by Scrymarch (4.00 / 2) #5 Wed May 15, 2013 at 08:59:12 PM EST
Would support your idea ... Restrict new supply, support prices for existing owners at all cost.

I was wondering by wumpus (4.00 / 1) #10 Thu May 16, 2013 at 08:55:54 AM EST
how anybody could get the Carousel reference without being well over the cutoff age. Then again, my cousin got it on blueray for Christmas and he's barely 30. Might be making a comeback in the bargain bin.

Hasn't been on TV in a while by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #12 Thu May 16, 2013 at 08:48:39 PM EST
I can't remember the last time I saw it on TV.  Certainly you could get it from Netflix, but if you weren't born before 1980 it probably is something you won't even think of looking for.
