perhaps i'm just bitter because my generation has gotten nothing but other people's problems. everyone else got to live using nothing, and i want to as well...but, i can't because i'm part of our society that has to try and support everyone else's good times over the last 2-3 decades.

just my opinion though.

baby boomers @#$! it all up... that is true, maybe not completely their fault because the generation after them (my generation, gen x) was so much smaller than theirs...
some call them the "greatest generation" because of activism and such... well, this is what happened while they were in charge.

Politicians are (lets face it) RICH, you dont see a paycheck-to-paycheck person in politics)
Corporate bigwigs are RICH
Corporations have had and will continue having a hand (or more) in politics

Thus the little guy is gonna get @#$! no matter what

I also heard recently, in the tech sector, that it might be a good idea to start learning Japanese and Mandarin as a second language because your going to have to start interacting more with them in the future.

they said the same thing about hindi back in the day. that panned out. :roll:

i already work with lots of international vendors, support personnel, peers, etc. geez, even my networking professor in college was a direct transport from china...she spoke english fine. english is the universal technology language, and many chinese and japanese already speak english well enough. as they become even more integrated, english will continue to become a required language. just like it became in europe in the 90s.
