Their biggest problem is the fact that they're being "raised" by the kids of yesterday.

36% less than what was with them in 1996.

I blame comic books.
 
2012-09-16 01:44:23 PM
Sustained exposure to "reality" TV shows from birth is to blame....

Not an increase in crime. Just an incease in the attention to the crimes.

Everything looks bigger when it's under a magnifying glass.

Maybe the idea that they've been screwed over by their elders is starting to sink in.

Hey, the media needs scare stories to get ratings.

Very very accurate.
 
2012-09-16 02:08:05 PM
Gee, I wonder if these kids have anything in common...
 
2012-09-16 02:08:08 PM
Going out on a wire here... but can I get the race of these teens?

Just ask'n, that'll help in answering the question.
 
2012-09-16 02:08:12 PM
Information becomes more widely and easily available, people know about more crimes.

You can't explain that!
 
2012-09-16 02:11:15 PM
Let's go with the shorter list: 'what's not wrong with kids these days.'

And, there are now more types of behavior that are considered criminal. And it's easier for someone to get arrested for vague technicalities of a crime.
 
2012-09-16 02:15:19 PM
It's the jenkem making them all crazy.
 
2012-09-16 02:15:40 PM
Same thing that was with them in 1708, and 1473, and 987, and 610, and 201....

"I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on
frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond
words... When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and
respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise
[disrespectful] and impatient of restraint" (Hesiod, 8th c. BC)

Hey this sound familiar:


Kids!
I don't know what's wrong with these kids today!
Kids!
Who can understand anything they say?
Kids!
They a disobedient, disrespectful oafs!
Noisy, crazy, dirty, lazy, loafers!
While we're on the subject:
Kids!
You can talk and talk till your face is blue!
Kids!
But they still just do what they want to do!
Why can't they be like we were,
Perfect in every way?
What's the matter with kids today?
Kids!
I've tried to raise him the best I could
Kids! Kids!
Laughing, singing, dancing, grinning, morons!
And while we're on the subject!
Kids! They are just impossible to control!
Kids! With their awful clothes and their rock an' roll!
Why can't they dance like we did

That's just because they get around.
 
2012-09-16 02:17:22 PM
Oh, oh, you see, the kids, they listen to the rap music which gives them the brain damage. With their hippin', and the hoppin', and the bippin', and the boppin', so they don't know what the jazz...is all about!
 
2012-09-16 02:17:48 PM
It's been going on since time began.

One book I read a couple summers ago was 2030: The Real Story of What Happened to America. While overall a good but not great book, it addressed the issue of the new generation, basically screwed over with a crappy economy while the retired and remaining Baby Boomers are being kept alive with new medicine and medical discoveries. It goes to the point of organized attacks and kidnappings of the elderly.

While we may thing every next generation as the worst and most obnoxious, they eventually become like the others. Working folk, then retiring old folk. But with the economy in the crapper and money being distributed to the top percentile of the country, they're not going to be happy.

But there's another problem. The problem is that the game is rigged (George Carlin video). The kids want to get ahead, but it's harder than it should be if the game wasn't rigged. So to get ahead they do the next thing that might get them ahead of the rest. And yes, this includes non illegal things like just plain attention whoring.

They aren't reading their bibles...
"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

Also...
"There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."

I don't have a problem with the violence; it's the "not only were they stupid enough to film their crime, but then they uploaded it to YouTube/Facebook/etc".
 
2012-09-16 02:24:08 PM
Raised by morons?
 
2012-09-16 02:24:16 PM
Example: DragonBallZ

You may be born with a monkeys tail, but, wtf, you'll be a tough guy. Just train your muscles, not your brain. And IF you die there surely will be a god/dragon/fsm to bring you back so you can start that shiat over and over again.

/just one example
//even 20 year old youngsters today are not able to do some mental arithmetic anymore
///if you can't count the slashies, you may be one of them

36% more kids are plopping themselves in front of the Nintendo64/Playstation/PS2/PS3/Xbox/and so on.

Thog no like young men of tribe. Young ones no make proper spears. Sit around eating berries. Tribe doomed.

My parents were technically boomers, though I don't understand how seeing as they were both born in the late '50's. If there's something wrong with me that the Boomers hate, it's their own damn fault.
 
2012-09-16 02:27:54 PM

Boomers were born from 1946 to 1964

And in increase in things we call crimes, but really aren't (or shouldn't be).

It's more that they're all hopped up on the marihuana listening to that Negroid jazz music.

Yesterday Thog find empty beer gourds and discarded loincloths under sacred tree. Damn kids make snu snu under sacred tree with no reverence. Tribe doomed.
 
2012-09-16 02:31:22 PM
More media fear mongering.
 
2012-09-16 02:31:52 PM
Simple, the parents don't give two shiats about caring for the kids properly and or don't know how to be halfway decent parents in the first place because they were WAY to young to have children and or immature or likely learned from THEIR parents which were also poor examples.

SuperTramp: Boomers were born from 1946 to 1964


Yeah, but if the baby boom was caused by horny guys coming home from war, how the hell were they still horny from the war in '64?

I blame articles on the rise in juvenile delinquency in "this generation".

Don't ask me, I'm a boomer (1957) and my father was only 5 years old when Pearl Harbor was bombed.
