My greatest hope is that kids growing up in America today learn a lesson from this debacle.

Their parents' generation partied.

Hookers & cocaine & Hummer H2's & big houses with granite countertops & trips to Jamaica for everyone.

But the kids got stuck with the bill. And it's a big one.

They cared more about video games and MTV cribs and celebrities than their country or their world or their educations.

Their peers got sent off to die in a stupid war, their country got financially raped by a corrupt few, their planet got dirtier and warmer, and the vast majority of them sat on their increasingly-fat asses and let it happen.

And now, they're going to be moving out of their parents' foreclosed McMansions, they're not going to have HELOC money to go to the mall, and they're going to wonder why the big party ended. Now, they may be the first generation of Americans to have a worse lifestyle than their parents.

I hope they learn something from this debacle. Something that changes them to the core. Like the Great Depression generation learned. Save. Work hard. Care about your country and your world. Get a good education or educate yourself. Care about your fellow man. Debt is evil. Materialism is a disease.

The Baby Boomers screwed America. The kids, if they wake up, are the ones who can fix it.

Or not.
