Can't Wait For The MySpace Generation To Run For Office

from the now-that-ought-to-be-fun dept

Our discussion on the fear mongering article about MySpace could probably be summed up as saying that it's about time we started teaching people common sense. Taking a slightly different view on all of this is David Canton, who points out that all of the non-common sense by folks today, posting all kinds of personal information to the web is going to come back to bite the MySpace generation in a few years when they start running for office. Of course, on the bright side, maybe it will completely weed out a series of potentially common senseless politicians by automatically disqualifying them. At least we can hope.

    Think before you speak......

    Before you post any further replies and/or opinions, please learn to think before you speak. You claim to be smart, yet you display one of the oldest forms of stupidity; that of assumption. You assume to be the next leaders of the free world, and you base this assumption on your intelligence and the school you attend. One's IQ does not prepare him for the life ahead of him; neither does a single institution. Preparation does not come by a multitude of experiences or even by an elevated education. Rather, it comes from having wisdom. Also, you claim to be smart, yet you are unable to to write correctly. There is a SHIFT key for a reason, and I promise that you will not feel pain by pressing your "comma" key. Please learn to think before expressing any other opinions; the failure to do so will truly inhibit your ability to learn from this mistake you have made.
