Children, Hate Speech, and Voting

Not much to add here. This is literally true. Liberals in general do support campus speech codes, and many justify it with the arguement that eighteen-to-twenty-two-year-olds are not adults yet, and are not mature enough to be subjected to free speech. And yes, there are movements among liberals, most recently in San Francisco, to lower the voting age to sixteen so that more left-wing politicians can get elected. They'll tell you it's because younger people are more open-minded, but of course the real reason is that they're more ignorant and naive, and are much less inclined to thing before acting. And before some social justice warrior indignantly writes in to say the two groups of liberals aren't completely congruent, I'll point out that yes, some liberals agree with the one position but not with the other. However, the two groups certainly overlap.  As for the illustration, it's Nagato Yuki-chan of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu) again, and she looked so good in the last quibcag, I decided to use her again.

  1. Whatever happened to those eternal words of wisdom given to the youth of yore?

    "Suck it up and get a thick skin! You think the real world gives a damn that your feelings are hurt? If you want to last more than ten seconds out there you better learn to deal with it now rather than out there on the job."
