I recently had a Twitter discussion with someone. It started when he commented on a Sen Warren Tweet about forgiving student loans. He couldn’t wait for her to help relieve him of his debt.
Needless to say I didn’t agree so we went back and forth. Times were different he said, wages were stagnant, college cost more, and on and on repeating the progressive mantra of unfairness and crisis.
The tweeting finally stopped with his last:
I’m not interested in your elderly white man, out of touch pov.
I thought that pretty much said it all. I think what he actually meant to say was:
“Let me wallow in my world of self pity and victimization. I’m not interested in any comparisons with previous generations. I want what I’m told I deserve.”
