Sorry sweetie, you can’t spell SUCKZZZZ without USC. Deal with it. Now if you had gone for a business major, USC is definitely better… because UCLA doesn’t offer one!!! Seriously, the job market has been so bad for so long. My son graduated in 2007 with a degree in mechanical engineering and he couldn’t find anything until a temp agency landed him in a job with a firm that has some big defense contracts. After his first day, he told me that all he does is CAD drawings, using a program he learned for his high school robotics team. This generation is going to have to reinvent the American Dream. You’re like the children of the 30’s.

I was in my twenties when Reagan became president. I had confidence that America was so strong we would survive his presidency. But seeing how the systemic problems begun with his policies have never been solved, and the damage done by the Bushistas setting us back another ten years, I’m not sure if we will be able to turn it around in the near future. (The good news is, when the Baby Boomers die off, you won’t be carrying the cost of their Social Security and Medicare; the bad news is your generation may get a whole new understanding of soylent green.)

Just know this, a GOP president in 2016 will finish the job of flushing this country down the toilet, so you better get every one of generation off their smart phones and begin the tireless work of changing the composition of Congress and state legislatures.

Think about this. If we can get 70,000 millennials to relocate in Wyoming right now (cheap land!), you could personally turn it into a blue state.
