The Return of the Lost Generation
American Thinker, by Byron Lafayette

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/11/2019 5:50:19 AM

You may have heard the term "The Lost Generation," made famous by a group of writers in the early 20th century. Its members were most notably Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein, who, some say, coined the phrase. This generation comprised the young men and woman who had returned from the carnage of World War I and met the new challenge of domestic life in the ´20s and ´30s. This generation was noted for its restlessness, lack of direction, and great confusion. A theme that filled Lost Generation literature of the time was the frivolous wealth of the upper crust. This

Millennials are not a lost generation, they are a loser generation. Hardship for them is a barrista spilling their $10 double latte funicello at a Starbucks. Try two tours in Vietnam and get back to me......

Nonsense. This generation´s "problems" stem from thinking it makes any sense at all to go many thousands of $$ into debt to study stupid stuff--like "Womyn´s Studies" and expect to get a good job.

We will always need doctors, engineers, computer scientists, nurses, accountants, etc. Young people who understand this will do well in life.

Their biggest financial problems in the future will be supporting the gimmes who expect "free" healthcare, student loan forgiveness, a universal basic income, and everything else that the leaders of their generation are promising.

Both my boys endured hardships, my divorce, and were taught the value of money and work. They have real jobs because they worked to make themselves marketable. They have real wives and children, because that´s what they wanted. They also have real problems, as everyone does, not imaginary ones.

The reason this has happened is that their parents paid more attention to them, than advancement of careers or possessions in this materialistic world.

The article is depressing.

While 9/11 was a scary wake up call to the dangers of terrorists, there has been little threat here since. Incidents, yes. Grave threat to the Country, no. I am not looking over my shoulder every minute expecting disaster. I know bad things could happen but I don´t live my life waiting for them. 9/11 doesn´t frame my life.

2008 financial problems were certainly troubling. Down times have happened in the past. We got over them. 2008 was exacerbated by a president and congress that did just about everything wrong that they could to undermine an economic recovery. The lesson learned is that politicians can screw things up; ESPECIALLY dem politicians. However, the Country has great potential.

We are now the strongest economic power in the world and barring dems messing it up are likely to stay so for a while. We are energy independent. Everyone that wants a job is working. Pay is rising. Many terrorists threats are crushed.

If you are depressed about all this, you have a personal problem.

Could things be improved? Sure. The strivers among us will accomplish those changes. Those stivers gave us fracking and drilling improvements that made us energy strong. The worriers lectured us about running out of oil and draconian conservation efforts.

The author says they were handed a "bum deal". I think they were handed challenges. Winners overcome challenges. Whiners mumble about bum deals.

Lost generation? Could it be due to the fact that liberals are taking God out of school? I have to say if I had children today, I would make certain that they would have a Life Application Study Bible. Wisdom comes from God - why would you not want to equip your child with a resource like that?

FTA:"Gone was the assurance of a good job after university, and gone was the idea of a stable 9-5 job that one could stay at until retirement.

Really? This is BS.

I see a pity party, "Nobody has had to endure the horrible hardships that we poor millenials have had to endure. Woe is us."

Bullhockey. You have seen nothing significant and if you get off your butt and get a good education, you are set, will easily be employed your whole life.

Spare me the pity party. Not impressed that millenials are anything except self-absorbed whiners - including this guy.

President Donald Trump spent Saturday golfing with rock superstar Kid Rock, a day after the Russia collusion investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller was completed. The president left his club at Mar-a-Lago and traveled to his Trump International Golf Club on Saturday, but he did not tell reporters who his golfing partners were. The answer was revealed on Twitter hours later, as Kid Rock posted a picture with the president. “Another great day on the links!” he wrote. “Thank you to POTUS for having me and to EVERYONE at Trump International for being so wonderful.

Well, it’s finally here. Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the Russia investigation late Friday afternoon to Attorney General William Barr and the liberal media began to conflagrate. During the early evening buzz on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd seemed to express concern over the fact that Mueller allowed President Trump and his legal team to answer written questions, instead of testifying before a grand jury. Speaking with California Congressman Eric “nuke the gun owners” Swalwell (D) on the phone, Todd pressed him on Trump’s form of testimony: This report was concluded without interviewing the President of

What better example for how the left-wing media views the free speech rights of campus conservatives than their ignoring of President Donald Trump’s executive order protecting those rights. (Video) Newsbusters reported Friday evening that the major broadcast networks – ABC, CBS, and NBC – ignored Trump’s executive order in favor of covering New Zealand’s recent “assault weapon” ban. Naturally, Fox News was the only outlet to cover the story in detail, placing it early in the broadcast of “Special Report.” “At a ceremony in the East Room this afternoon, President Trump took a step he hopes will ensure all voices

Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid suggested the possibility of a cover-up was underway regarding Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and the any alleged wrongdoing of President Donald Trump or his associates. Reid said that given Attorney General William Barr wasn’t recused, unlike his predecessor Jeff Sessions, there could be the “seeds of a cover-up” in place. “That’s the challenge. Unlike the independent counsel, which that statute was allowed to expire after Bill Clinton, which can be a runaway thing of its own — but at least that’s controlled by Congress. In this — which

Senator Roy Blunt’s vote against President Donald Trump’s border emergency declaration has been reaping consequences in his home state. The Missouri Republican, one of 12 who sided with Democrats to block Trump’s use of emergency powers, has come under fire by voters who feel he betrayed them and was recently disinvited from the local Christian County GOP event next month, The Kansas City Star reported. After the local party committee’s events chair initially expressed anger at Blunt’s vote and rescinded his invitation to attend the event in Ozark, the offer was extended again, according to KOLR10 News.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction.

The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

"Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support
