    Another Obama success story. Next tent cities everywhere. He is soo awesome, how lucky we are to have such a leader. Food stamps, obama phones, welfare for everyone, he's our hero.

    75% of "new" jobs created are part time.

    The nation elected him, let us now suffer the consequences of his actions.

    He is doing exactly what he said he was going to do and exactly what he wants: fundamentally change the USA from a free market to a socialist centralized state govt which controls a few "big" entities in labor, capital and production, all the while suppressing and ridding the nation of small entrepreneurial endeavors.

    Easier to control a few bigs than a lot of smalls.

    I'm not sure. My 4 year old still lives with my wife and me. Makes it hard for him to hook up with the 4 year old girls at his day care, but that hasn't been enough to get him to move out on his own.

    No source, dad's just passing along his inner thoughts. :laugh:

    Seemed like a good number to him, so he put it out there.

    I'm pretty sure your little guy would be killing it, if it weren't for Obama.

    21.6 million ... 36%

    http://www.today.com/money/record-21-6-million-millennials-live-parents-6C10823526

    More than a third of American millennials are living at home with their parents, according to a Pew Research Center study released Thursday.

    When the recession began in 2007, 32 percent or 18.5 million of millennials—defined as 18- to 31-year olds—had not left the nest. Today, it is 36 percent, or 21.6 million.

    According to Pew's analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data, the number of millennials still living at home is the highest percentage in four decades.

    Perhaps tellingly, President Obama's attitude doesn't appear to be much different about this either.

    Even though I'm of this generation, I can proudly say I'm a homeowner before 30. I suppose I could/should mock all my friends who bought into the dog and pony show about the dimwit we have in office now (several of whom continue to live at their parents house too btw), but that wouldn't be very mature of me. I'll just hope they'll wake up one day and realize that Obama's hope and change BS was just that...and will never vote Democrat again.
