Kids Today! (wherein I gripe about old people griping about young people)

FacebookTwitterTumblrPinterestGoogle+StumbleUponRedditDiggShare

I dread elections for several reasons, but the main sore point for me is that I end up having to watch old people slander me for a month and a half. Every election, pundits joyously proclaim that my generation isn’t interested in politics, and they cite all sorts of wonderful studies and crow about their […]
