    Yeah, because they've become entitled little twats with their heads stuck in iPhones, Starbucks, and Facebook. It's only at college that they begin to show academic acceleration. Only a big war in which their asses are drafted into service, will they be set straight.

    Too much of state welfare leads to all this. Instead of making it mandatory to join colleges, qualify for physical fitness at every level and have a stable disciplined life, the whole corporatist, leftist mentality has turned US population into a dependent sheep. There was a recent report that a third of Britiain's active serving troops are too fat to fight, especially those stationed in the UK.

    This is dangerous.

    Frankly mate, I have more respect for entitled little [] with their heads stuck in iPhones, Starbucks, and Facebook, than for those that travel to Syria to hang out with the al-Qaida, and then travel to Ukraine to hang out with the Nazis.

    And guess what, those same exact entitled little twats end up taking up "social causes" (read: disruptive NGO work) in places like Syria, Ukraine, and even India.

    They are cannon fodder.

    Jobless youth are always cannon fodder.
