Serious question: Why would any person with no skills, ambition, or work ethic ever bother to work their way up to the point where they have marketable skill, a sense of accomplishment that drives them to success, and a worthy work ethic when it's far more profitable to simply collect welfare for the rest of their lives? The problem isn't that no/low skill jobs don't pay enough. There once was a time that you'd work for FREE until you developed the skills necessary to earn your employer some money. The problem is TOO MUCH "FREE STUFF" that promotes the attitude of "why bother working hard when sitting on my fat adz all day earns me a life I'm willing to live with".

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
