Alot of young people don't make alot of money. When I was 16, the minimum wage was $3.25/hr. and you were lucky to get such a good job. Our economy was depressed then, as it is now in other parts of Canada. But with the advent of the internet, media and exposure young people get, some get the idea that the are entitled to what they want, when they want it on their terms. When that means their terms are the $84 they have in the bank, well, this is the result. Mom and Dad might buy them an X-Box, but likely won't spring for a toy gun at $500. So, when they want it and want it now, they have to be cheap.

Maybe that's just how I see it, being an old fart and all.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
