In a recent article in The Washington Times, Ted Nugent claims that the youth of America today are lazy and apathetic.  He asserts, "Millennials sleep as their future crumbles.", and "Today's youth snooze while government steals their fortune and lives."

Here's an excerpt from the article:

The 1968 riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago remain vivid in my mind, as do so many marches and demonstrations by young people of that era, primarily protesting the Vietnam War and demanding civil rights for all.

Young Americans were politically naive in 1960 but at least willing to be engaged. Although I remember the various protests and marches, I was either squirrel hunting or putting a sharp edge on my sonic guitar-slaying skills, having not awakened to my “we the people” duties quite yet. Regrettably, I knew nothing about politics and, sadly, little of our nation’s history.

All of this makes me think about today’s generation of young people - especially college-age Americans.More than likely, this generation of young Americans will be the first in our nation’s history not to enjoy a standard of living greater than their parents’. This alone should be cause for a massive mob of angry young people marching on Washington.Many young college graduates are moving back in with their parents because of limited job opportunities. That should send a clear warning to them that all is not well - not well at all. They would be wise to spend some time researching why this is so.Except for the superior human beings who volunteer for U.S. military service, I am not impressed with this generation. They are being led to their own slaughter and are blindly following along instead of fighting for their own survival. Text or twitter that, Millennials.
