This fucking hurts to much.

OK, its a wide known fact that we have a 20 year old dumbass here in the office. I mean this girl has said some down right stupid shit. But this one hurts to fuckin much. I guess it hurts so bad cause I actually took up history in college and I expect people to know things about this country. Real fuckin things. Like during the American Civil War it was the North against the South and it is ackowledged that the North won. Well at lunch yesterday, our representative of Generation Y proclaimed that the ACW was the North against the East and the South won. Which is interesting to ponder. Who was the East? Why did the South win if they weren't in it? How did this bitch graduate from high school 2 years ago? I don't know. It really fuckin hurts my head to think that a mojority of the population has these kinds of thoughts.

I like my work space. We have a small group of people working here, but it is a pretty diverse group of generations. I cant crack on this chick to hard, she is after all only 20. All she is worried about is dudes, whats going on w/Brit, American Idol, and holding on to that dream the Redskins of Ravens are going to call about that cheerleading position. Is it really to much to ask to remember certain tings about the place you live? Or at least know what the fuck really happened. It just shows the level of apathy this coming generation has. They sure as hell aint gonna tell any one what ot do. Or it could get really scary. In the future, some of these cats are gonna be elected officials and lawmakers. Knowing what they know. Or don't know.

Hey, not all of us Gen-Y peeps are stupid. This is a pretty egregious example though. Even more embarrassing to our nation than not knowing that Africa isn't a country.

I'm more surprised that this somehow surprised you. I mean statistically speaking we live in a world where 1/2 the population is below average intellegence. Sadly, there's never been an I.Q. requirement for persuing public office. I'd be less worried about this individual entering politics and having any kind of success and more worried about this girl being allowed to procreate. Can you imagine a young doe-eyed little thing looking up at her and asking "mommy, why is the sky blue?" and mom responds "cuz jews killed our lord and saviour - now shut up and eat your happy meal!"
