 Yuppies - Nostalgia Central   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Yuppies (an acronym for Young Urban Professionals) ostentatiously stocked their New York-style apartments with the most expensive designer appliances and the latest in high-end stereo and video gear, and drove to work in shiny new Benzes and Beemers (BMWs).
Yuppies were lambasted as excessively consumptive in their pursuit of "the dream" without any real regard for those left behind.
Yuppies led the way in gentrifying urban neighbourhoods, turning warehouse lofts and run-down brownstones into valuable real estate, and there can be little doubt that the yuppie phenomenon had a lasting cultural impact.

The yuppie heyday was short-lived; critics gleefully described the stock market crash of October 1987 as the consequence of yuppie folly -- and the beginning of the yuppie's end.
Yuppies often worked so hard that they had little time for sex; more than one DINK couple admitted that they had an answering machine at home just so they could talk to each other at least once a day.

 Urban Dictionary: yuppie
Yuppies will move into an area that was once affordable in the city, but they got wind that it was “hip” to live in Wicker Park, or SoHo, or the Teapot District, so they gentrify it.
Yuppies differ from your bog-standard "business man" due to their relatively young age, their blatant arrogance, bloody-minded ambition and the fact that they care more about their work and making money, than the fact that everyone thinks they are a complete twat.
Concepts such as morality, fairness and honesty were alien to the yuppie philosophy in his/her insatiable drive to become rich as possible before the age of forty.

 The Rise of Yuppie Fascism, Part Two, by Jack Rabbit - Democratic Underground
According to Tamas, the main feature of fascism, whether classical fascism or yuppie fascism, is a hostility to universal citizenship resulting in actions that constitute a reversal of the Enlightenment tendency to conceptualize citizenship as a necessary part of the human condition.
Thus, in yuppie fascism, the power of the corporation is absolute and all other individuals and institutions, including the state, are conceived only in how they stand in relation to the corporation.
In yuppie fascism, with the state in decline and war seen as an inconvenient though occasionally necessary evil, the hero is the entrepreneur.

Flaunting affluent backgrounds while playing raw punk reminiscent of bands such as the Sex Pistols, Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys, the Yuppie Pricks eschew traditional 'working-class' punk clichés in favor of a decadent, over-the-top image and sound.

   Yuppie Eugenics
A contemporary, ostensibly voluntary form of older ideas and practices, Yuppie Eugenics is based in modern molecular genetics and concepts of “choice,” and has begun to raise the high tech prospect of employing prenatal genetic engineering.
What was once a preventative choice has become a pro-active entitlement, exacerbated by the sense prevailing among current elites that one has the right to control all aspects of one’s life and shape them by buying and periodically upgrading the best that technology has to offer, be it a computer, a car, or a child.
Yuppie Eugenics builds on the mirage that applications of genetics and biotechnology will be able to make us more perfect as well as to counter all forms of pain, illness, and death.

 The Mavens' Word of the Day
In 1984, when yuppie first came to media attention, it, yumpie, and YAP (for "young affluent professional") were all in circulation, but yuppie is the one that prevailed.
Yuppie itself inspired a large number of spinoff terms, most of which were quickly forgotton; an exception is the still-current buppie "fl urban professional."
The word yuppie is a word of 1984, when it was the vogue word, the subject of cover articles in major magazines and the inspiration for several books.

 The Poor Man Institute » The yuppification of the American Editors
Indeed, quality restaurants located in non-yuppie areas are quickly “discovered” by yuppies, and spoken about, in hushed tones, as “this little neighborhood place I found”, which, when you finally arrive, turns out to have a clientele consisting of two Mexicans and fifty billion slumming yuppies.
For, like bees, yuppies send out unconscious pheremonal signals to each other which communicate the exact location of all fine eateries in a fifty-mile location, which they then swarm relentlessly, until the place is turned into a wasteland of boutique beer and ‘funky*‘ decor.
Yuppies are basically all six-year-old girls, except that instead of stickers and Barbies all conversation is about the acquisition and relative merits of furniture, kitchen supplies, fresh produce, insanely overpriced tchotches from the 3rd world, HBO (the yuppie network) shows on DVD, and, of course, real estate.

On the other hand, the yuppie fascist strategy to deal with the problem of lower-class immigration from the developing world is outlawing it.
Finally, while some transitional forms of yuppie fascism have allied themselves with economic protectionism, such as Pat Buchanan and his followers in the United States, the more mature and potent forms of yuppie fascism, such as the present Italian government of Silvio Berlusconi, are allied with global capitalism.
In this, it is not only the worker of the developing nation whose citizenship is taken away in order to treat his labor as a commodity and deny his humanity beyond his ability in the workplace, but also the native-born unskilled or semi-skilled worker in the developed world as well.

There was an interesting point on Instapundit saying that stopping people from voting who deserve to vote is no better or worse than allowing people to vote who do not have the right.
One thing that really struck me about the time we live in is how disturbingly close to the dystopia (I was going to give a shout out to the dictionary for making me sound smart, but I remembered this word on my own!) of Orwell's 1984.
It is just that when the 10th bill comes up for the refunding of the NEA (which I think is an extension of defend us because it reduces crime by making people more learned), it is tough to call it quite as fl and white as I have just laid out.

To be certain, there are some tracks reminiscent of Yuppie Flus last record, the lush masterpiece Days Before The Day (Stray on Free and Europe is Different), but for the most part, the songs on Toast Masters are of a more stripped down, classic pop/rock variety.

Not even Ronald Reagan's death could exterminate the tenacious 80s yuppie, who now seeks to exploit our precious punk heritage in the form of THE YUPPIE PRICKS from Austin, TX.
THE YUPPIE PRICKS' first album was an exclusive affair sold only on Wall Street and in country clubs: rumor has it that they bribed Biafra to release Broker's Banquet to get street cred.
Gordon Gecko immortalized the 80s "Greed is Good" philosophy and G. Bush applied his yuppie shenaniganism to the American Presidency, but it took THE YUPPIE PRICKS to collide this carnivorous mentality with punk.

 No More "Yuppie Flu"
In the 1980s, chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome(CFIDS) was portrayed as the "Yuppie flu," a relatively rare condition that affected mostly upper middle class white professionals.
In fact, the highest levels of CFIDS were consistently found among minority groups and individuals with lower levels of education and occupational status, such as blue-collar workers.
What is clear is that most of the CFIDS prevalence studies to date are problematic and do not present a complete picture of the illness.
