Please God! Tell me that this was satire! I am horribly offended to the point of wanting to kick the monitor of my computer with all my might in hopes that somehow the shock will travel through the web to Ms. Flipos' hind end and maybe remind her that you Fools have many young readers who are not these credit idiots that she is writing about, who have no self control and will spend as much money as they are allowed on a whim because those shoes look nice. If this article is not satiristic then I have grossly placed my education of investing in the wrong hands.
Why has she singled out America's future to stereotype and portray as stupid tattooed pierced mindless spenders who complain about not having enough credit to sufficiently get them into debt in just one credit card? Did you just recently have a bad experience with a teen that inspired you to compose this Pulitzer quality piece of literature? You look at the generations of the future and you are terrified that we are headed for disaster. I read a quote once complaining about how the future generation is worthless, lazy, no good, and there will be no future, the world will crumble once the old people of today are gone. But you know what? It is a quote from the ancient Romans.
Maybe Ms. Flipos the next time you go to write another inspiring article about our nations youth, you will remember that not all of us are mindless spenders. A-ight, Dawg?
One p.o.-ed young Fool!
