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.

High drama, few results as Trump
warns of ´long´ shutdown
Associated Press, by Lisa Mascaro, Catherine Lucey*    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/15/2019 10:16:07     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics Tuesday, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown. The House and Senate announced they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown´s 25th day, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congress provide $5.7 billion to build his promised border wall with Mexico. Democrats say they will discuss border security once the government has

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said there is no strain of racism on the left the same day the Democratic National Committee had to pull out of the Women’s March because of an anti-Semitism scandal. Wallace’s program "Deadline: White House" devoted a segment to Rep. Steve King’s remark about wishing "white supremacy" was not considered offensive. Republicans voted unanimously to condemn white supremacy today but Wallace was laser-focused on trashing every member of her former party for the comment. "This does not have a parallel on the left.

Donald Trump Jr. has been sounding the alarm on voices that have largely been silenced by the mainstream media and ignored by top Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): so-called "Angel Parents" — mothers, fathers and family members of those killed at the hands of illegal immigrants. The oldest Trump son took to social media on Sunday to post a powerful clip of Angel Mother Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son was tragically killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant. Appearing on Fox News´ "Hannity," Mendoza was asked by host Sean Hannity if she was pleased with President Donald Trump "holding

James Baker — the general counsel of the FBI during both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations — sat for two interviews with House investigators last October. After the sessions — one on Oct. 3, the other Oct. 18 — Republican Rep. Mark Meadows called parts of Baker´s testimony "explosive." Republicans intended to make the interview transcripts public. The questioning was not conducted in a classified setting, and Baker had FBI and other lawyers with him the whole time. But the House still had to send the transcripts to the FBI for clearance, just to make sure public release would

Britain´s ´First Transgender Family´ Now

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse. The couple, however, maintain Jayden — who is on

Attorney General nominee William Barr said he told President Trump that Robert Mueller is a “straight shooter” when the president once quizzed him about the special counsel’s integrity. Barr, testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Tuesday, said he talked to Trump about joining the president’s defense team last summer. “He said, ‘Oh you know Bob Mueller, how well do you know Bob Mueller?´” Barr told the panel. He replied that the Barrs and the Muellers were good friends and would remain so even after the investigation was completed. “And he was interested in that, wanted to know

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off? Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force (snip) if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off -- as in no more job

A stench has been emanating from the J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI headquarters) for over two years. It landed Saturday on the front page of the New York Times in an article citing “former law enforcement officials” claiming they had to deal with “explosive implications” that President Donald Trump was “knowingly” or “unwittingly” working for Russia. Thus, the story goes, there was a basis to begin the Russia collusion investigation. In fact, “The Gray Lady” was covering the derrieres of the Obama administration officials involved in the cabal to frame Trump, who now fear an imminent Special Counsel finding that

Are you a man? That is to say, are you a genetic male who also happens to identify as a "man," for some increasingly antiquated reason? If so, are you under the mistaken impression that you´re not a rapist? Our society has come a long way in shaming men for behaving in any way that anybody anywhere doesn´t like, and reminding men that we´re all complicit even if we don´t behave that way. But it´s not nearly enough. The mere fact of maleness is shameful and problematic. Men and boys everywhere need

Megyn Kelly finalized her exit from NBC News on Friday night — after months of difficult negotiations over whether she could ever talk about the backstabbing behavior from network brass and staffers. Kelly finally resolved her exit three months after she was axed as host of the 9 a.m. hour of “Today,” landing her a $30 million payout to take her salary to the agreed amount in her contract — a total of $69 million. The former Fox News host lasted just 18 months at NBC News, but Page Six learned during the course of her negotiations

The Fight for $15 isn’t living up to its promise. For years, liberals have claimed that the minimum wage needs to increase to $15 an hour to provide a living wage for full-time workers. The stated goal, as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders writes on his website, is straightforward, “We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty.” In one way, the campaign has been remarkably successful. California and New York are phasing in a statewide $15 an hour minimum wage. Numerous cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Washington D.C., have passed $15 an hour minimum wage

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.” Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.
