Why blame the victims Tele?

Adult children living with their parents is the result of the Globalist economy... the Globalist attempt to wipe us out... the Globalist attempt to bankrupt our country... They sent our manufacturing to China and attacked us as a country and as a people. And they are still pursuing open borders, unchecked immigration and are still trying to send refugees into Europe and the West.

That is a legitimate English word, and not totally inappropriate in context. But still, I don't think it's the word you were going for. ;)

I remember reading articles like this 20 years ago. People don’t change. And parents aren’t doing their kids any favors. Just re-enforcing bad spending habits.

I think the Daily Mail might find something to report in the UK.
Why would anyone in the UK care about US parents spending anything
they choose on anything or anyone?

Parents are free to choose to spend their hard-earned money on anything
or anyone they choose.

i.e. notice to Leah McDonald of the Daily Mail:
"Go stuff it."

I like the British press. They report stories that Americans just won't report.

I see stuff like that, and think:
1. The parents are choosing to spend their money on subsidizing their children's bad habits, and
2. The parents are the ones mainly responsible for instilling those bad habits.

Sure, society isn't helping, and even great parents can lose a kid to drugs and whatever. But the parents are the first line.

The there's item 3: Kid, I hope you don't mind mom or dad moving in with you someday because they spent all their money on you.

Any wonder why socialism is so popular among these folks. After the parents are drained, it's the rest of we taxpayers turn to provide for them.
