+12The 'greatest generation' did not need a college education, traditional jobs with pensions and healthcare benefits lifted the entire nation. The Boomers, to be successful, needed either a traditional job or a higher educations. Most did OK and were able to put their kids through college because their employers paid for healthcare. With Gen-X, the rules had changed. Those without an education were hard pressed to compete and could not live better than their parents had. They continue to struggle to afford college for their kids and many will go bankrupt when they face common illnesses like cancer, heart disease or diabetes; health care is just too expensive for many of them. The Millennials are on their own. If they cannot get congress to pass universal healthcare and education finance reform their children may never experience the American dream.

0Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard drive? He was trying to get in touch with Private Data but if it involves a Major Disaster I understand that the fault lies with General Protection. Furthermore, if you cannot reboot it may be because of a corrupt Colonel. *** Link: http://jokes4all.net/army-jokes?p=3

0The Vow of Silence A man wanted to become a monk so he went to the monastery and talked to the abbot (the head monk). The abbot said, "You must take a vow of silence and can only say two words every three years." The man agreed. After the first three years, the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?" - "Food cold!" the man replied. The abbot made sure the meals are not cold. Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?" - "Robe dirty!" the man exclaimed. The abbot ordered his robe be washed. Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?" - "Bed hard!". The abbot made sure the mattress got re-stuffed. Three more years went by and the abbot came to him and said, "What are your two words?" - "I quit!" said the man. "Well," the abbot replied, "I'm not surprised - you've done nothing but complain since you got here!" Link: http://www.ba-bamail.com/content.aspx?emailid=19381
Want to be healed? Three guys were fishing in a lake one day, when an angel appeared in the boat. When the three astonished men had settled down enough to speak, the first guy asked the angel humbly, "I've suffered from back pain ever since I took shrapnel in the Vietnam War ... Could you help me?" "Of course," the angel said, and when he touched the man's back, the man felt relief for the first time in years. The second guy who wore very thick glasses and had a hard time reading and driving. He asked if the angel could do anything about his poor eyesight. The angel smiled, removed the man's glasses and tossed them into the lake. When they hit the water, the man's eyes cleared and he could see everything distinctly. When the angel turned to the third guy, the guy put his hands out defensively -- "Don't touch me!" he cried, "I'm on a disability pension." Link: http://www.ahajokes.com/hunt003.html
Consulting the Experts The computer in my high school classroom was acting up. After watching me struggle with it, a student explained that my hard drive had crashed. So I called IT. "Can someone look at my computer?" I asked. "The hard drive crashed." "We can’t just send people down on your say-so," said the specialist. "How do you know that’s the problem?" "A student told me." "We’ll send someone right over." Link: https://www.rd.com/joke/consulting-the-experts-joke/
