GENERATION SJ (SKINNY JEANS)
After watching 21 Jump Street on the flight back from England, I got to thinking. Could it really be “cool” to drive a hybrid or to start a “hug-a-tree” campaign in high school? Please, say it ain’t so! What happened to the days when America’s youth were expected to kick ass on the world stage? Has the socialist/progressive agenda succeeded in demonizing ambition? What happened to working hard for the American dream? When did working hard get replaced with a sense of entitlement? Does the Skinny Jeans generation (Gen SJ) have a chance? Would they even be up for a fight or has eliminating bullying taken the toughness away from them? Is it Glee or those stupid vampire movies that are to blame? For every action there is always a reaction. Unfortunately, good intentions sometimes lead to undesirable side effects.
HYBRIDS & ELECTRICS
Today, owning a hybrid or electric vehicle tells the world: 1) I’m cheap, 2) I think of cars simply as a form of transportation, 3) I want you to like me because I love the environment, 4) I live for the sake of passing time, 5) I’m smug and I don’t care how much my driving the speed limit in the H.O.V. lane inconveniences others. Owning a hybrid or electric vehicle is the equivalent of putting your soul on life support.

I have to say, they're DEAD on and when you read there articles, full of details and in-depth analysis, plus one of the Don'ts mentioned in the "Do's and Don'ts" of this issue
is "Don't vote to re-elect Obama" (Showed it to Nerb when he was still at ford if you don't believe me)
I must say, those notes and quotes alone (Along with the stuff I might of missed or didn't notice) are enough for me to subscribe to this magazine. Who else agree's with at least one or the other articles/quotes they wrote?
