After Recession, More Young Adults Are Living on Street

Across the country, tens of thousands of underemployed and jobless young people, many with college credits or work histories, are struggling to house themselves in the wake of the recession, which has left workers between the ages of 18 and 24 with the highest unemployment rate of all adults.

The legacy parties won't even acknowledge that these people exist, even less do anything about it. This is an opportunity for the Green Party.

Unfortunately, the Green Party, at least in Illinois, makes tits on a boar look like intelligent design.
Since Obama was going to win Illinois anyway, I felt free to vote third-party. A month or two before the election, I went to the state party's web site. The top, front-and-center news story was from March. On the right was a red thermometer tracking progress (not good) on some fund-raising effort; I was informed that I had -71 (negative seventy-one) days left . . .

When's the last time the Greens came up with a good bumper sticker slogan?

I wish I could remember where, but I remember someone writing something similar about their local Green Party a while back. I get the feeling that in many parts of the country, the Greens are so used to being marginalized that they now expect it. It's hard to imagine them ever gaining real power when they act as though they're not really in it to win.
