At this rate, the United States is going to need immigrants of all kinds to continue growth.??A new Census Bureau study has just reported a sobering commentary on the current generation of young people. “There are now more young people living with their parents than in any other arrangement…What is more, almost 9 in 10 young people who were living in their parents’ home a year ago are still living there today, making it the most stable living arrangement.”

When I left home in 1980 we had suffered through the Carter economy and jobs were hard to find. Careers even harder. We got a brief break during Reagan, but my kids´ generation has been living in a 3rd world country. Single parent families are the norm, drug abuse is worse than its ever been, despite widespread availability of birth control girls are popping out babies at an alarming rate, and because it is so expensive to hire employees, jobs are even harder to come by than when I left home.
That adage about this being the first generation to be worse off than their parents is true. So who to thank? Start with massive taxation of those who earn enough to hire people. Then go to a perpetual state of warfare, which is expensive. Then the security state. When we pay for our own enslavement, we shouldnt be surprised when people live like slaves.

Repopulation by illegal criminal invasion is suicide. Germany anyone?

#2 I´d hazard to say not only that but the educators/school districts/parents who pushed our kids through a touchy feely agenda driven curriculum, rather than learning critical thinking and actual skills. We have a generation of kids now who havent a clue as to Western civilization or even other civilizations but they think they know everything about diversity and "cultural appropriation." Learning real skills has been phased out over decades.

Did you notice where most of these chicklets are located? If I were a better person, it would not have made me smile. Can you say "coming home to roost"?

Why would anyone think ´growth´ is a good idea? Less crowded roads seem like a good thing.

I have friends with a college-graduate adult son living at home. The son, now pushing 40, has seldom worked. The parents made excuses for him up into his 30s, but the mother now tells me she wants him out of the house. That ship has sailed, however, because the son has the emotional maturity of a 15 year old.

We’re politically divided and hateful;
Maybe that’s the media’s fault too
McClatchy Newspapers, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

A CBS News Poll the other day revealed that a whopping three out of four Americans believe the current tone and lack of civility in U.S. politics and public discussions actually encourages violence among some people. Sixty-eight percent in that poll also said the tone and civility of American politics have deteriorated in recent years, an opinion that conservatives, liberals and independents were united in holding. Examples are bounteous and disturbing. [Snip] Which raises a question you don’t often see raised in media: Does media deserve some blame for the corrosion of civility and acceptance of violence?

Obama: Back home again in Indonesia

Barack Obama is off on another extended vacation abroad this week, this time in Indonesia where he spent much of his formative childhood years. Since his White House lease expired in January, the ex-president has vacationed at a friend’s house in Palm Springs, on Richard Branson’s private Caribbean island, on David Geffen’s private yacht in French Polynesia and in a Tuscan hamlet purchased in its entirety by John Phillips. [Snip] He recalls fondly his childhood years in the Muslim Soetoro household. During presidential visits Obama reminisced with Indonesian crowds about his happy Jakarta years, recalling the regular sounds of Muslim

In a move that was both hailed and denounced, Israel’s Cabinet voted Sunday to rescind a 2016 decision to create a section of the holy Western Wall where men and women could pray together. You may have noticed during his May stay in Israel, President Trump, a Presbyterian, and wife Melania, a Roman Catholic, were split and stood to pray separately before the ancient wall, according to Orthodox custom. [Snip] The Western Wall is revered as a remnant of the Second Temple, which was destroyed by those

Gay marriages still growing,

Barely 24 months after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender adults who say they’re married to someone of the same sex has increased to more than 10%. But the rate of growth has slowed significantly since the first year. In the first year after the court’s Obergefell-Hodges decision, the number of reported same-sex marriages surged from under 8% to 9.6%. Today, a new survey by Gallup finds, the number is 10.2%. It is still more likely that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans are married to

The battle for the rubble
of Raqqa is underway
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 6/23/2017 10:55:35 AM     Post Reply
Three weeks into the allied assault on the ISIS capital of Raqqa, operations to surround the northern Syrian city are complete and street-by-street fighting has begun in the outskirts. The struggle to deny terrorists the symbolic capital of their self-proclaimed caliphate is likely to be hard-fought, bloody and prolonged. It pits an unknown number of fighters from Arab militias, Syrian Democratic Forces and an anti-ISIS coalition of mainly Kurdish soldiers newly-armed and advised by U.S. Special Operations troops. They face entrenched ISIS fighters estimated as at least 2,500 by the Institute for the Study of War. For months the city’s

Most Americans (on all sides)
now agree bias infects media
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Like beauty, bias is in the eye of the beholder. And now a very large majority of Americans sees the nation’s fourth estate as “subject to partisan agendas.” Translated from YouGov.com pollese, that means 70% of the general public on both sides of the political spectrum sees news media as biased, usually toward the other side. That may not be surprising in a nation that hasn’t been so polarized since the Vietnam War. But it is disturbing for the healthy, long-term functioning of a democracy that’s supposed to rely on consensus decisions made by an informed electorate.

Will Nancy Pelosi survive
the latest Dem disaster?
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

“Keeping our (House) leadership team completely unchanged,” Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio warned last November, “will simply lead to more disappointment in future elections.” Oh, look! More disappointment! Democrats lost four straight special House elections this year with ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the party helm. In fact, one could argue that Pelosi and her baggage helped fuel the surprisingly easy victory of the GOP’s Karen Handel in Georgia Tuesday. [Snip] Fully one-third of Pelosi’s 193 House Democrats now come from just three states, the usual liberal suspects of California, New York and Massachusetts, not the crucial Heartland.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out against the Senate Republican health care bill Sunday, saying both Republicans and Democrats need to do a better job at helping poor people. “Both parties ought to be worried about poor people, because I don’t think either party particularly cares about helping poor people,” Mr. Kasich, who lost the Republican Party’s presidential nomination to President Trump last year, told CNN’s Dana Bash. “You look at the rates of poverty, the problems in this country,” he continued. “We have not designed a system to get people work. Everything we’re talking about now — getting people

The Obama adventures continue! Barack Obama and his family went rafting on the Ayung River in Bali on Monday amid their nine-day vacation to Indonesia, where the former president lived for several years as a child. Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News. Obama will also speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1. Obama moved to Indonesia in 1967 at age 6
