I’m not trying to slam people who currently or have lived in basements. Basements can be cool places. I have never lived in one but I have been in two bands that practiced in them and I even recorded in an album in a basement studio (punk rock, yeah!). When I was married and first moved to Virginia the entire family ended up spending all of our social time in the basement as that’s where we put our big TV, sofa, computers, desks, and such. Our living room was empty.
People who have recently graduated from college who are having trouble starting their careers and are currently living in their parent’s basement shouldn’t be criticized for it. If you’re forty and living in your mom’s basement, yeah…maybe you need to do something or question your life choices. That’s the kind of neck-tattooed, unemployed dingus my sister married.
Donald Trump has recently accused Hillary Clinton of slamming Bernie Sanders’ supporters as living in their parents’ basements and working dead-end jobs. A recording recently surfaced with her describing them as such.
The thing is, she wasn’t degrading them. She was emphasizing and understanding why they were supporting Sanders. Sanders himself defended her. It’s not like Hillary said something nasty about vets being weak for have PTSD.
It’s not my intention to insult people who eat Hot Pockets. They are delicious and the pepperoni pizza is awesome. Taco Bell, meh. I lost my taste for the stuff in my 30’s. And I’ll never understand how anyone can drink Mountain Dew. It seems like crack in a bottle to me. People should stop drinking that stuff around the same time they reach the mature age where they stop putting ketchup on hot dogs.
