Home Ownership Dives To Lowest Point Since 1965: Basement Renovation Companies Cheer! [CBD]

Even though the headline is incorrect, and the article is mostly crap, Millennials Cause Home Ownership to Drop to Its Lowest Level Since 1965 is interesting for the points it unintentionally raises. By the way, the headline should have been, Coddled Children Of Coddled Children Aren't Growing Up, which is the story of our times.

Millennials are not only burdened by student loan debt, but they have also delayed life choices like marriage and parenthood, which are the primary drivers of home ownership.

I accept the fact that Millennials owe a lot of money for their "Lesbian Poetry of 16th Century Low-Country Wiccans" degrees, but I categorically reject the idea that the debt was somehow thrust upon them by unnamed evil capitalists. Nobody "burdened" them with anything. The fact that many of these basement-dwelling, X-box-playing retards were insufficiently aware of the state of the employment market when they decided to 1) go to college instead of working for the local plumber and, 2) take 5+ years to finish a bullshit major that will never provide the income to pay back those loans is entirely their responsibility.

If anyone is to blame it is the parents of these entitled, dissolute assholes. They made it easy for their spawn to reject responsibility, adulthood, self-respect, personal hygiene, and a few things I haven't thought of yet.

The sad thing is that many of these toads have bought into the illogical pipe-dream that is socialism-lite...a la Bernie Sanders. Had they gotten an actual education instead of jerking off for five years they might have learned something about that mythical cradle-to-grave support system that everyone is owed by their benevolent government. It often ends in gulags or, in the case of Sweden, a country so disinterested in its own survival that it accepts invaders whose first goal is to rape every native woman (and many native men) in the country.

The leftist drivel that universal home-ownership is an unalloyed economic boon is nonsense. But what home ownership does is connect the owners to the community, something that Millenials are sorely lacking. And with decreasing connections to community, is it any wonder that interest in and love of country is also decaying?
