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.

#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.

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.

You know when you’re on a crowded sidewalk in a hurry and the people in front aren’t, but it’s too crowded to pass and the clock is ticking on your appointment blocks away? Well, relax now in the sick comfort that those slow-walkers holding up your life are going to pay for their pathetic pace, they’re going to die sooner than you. It’s true, according to a new study of healthy adults. Researchers followed 420,727 people over a period of six years. That’s a lot of following, more than most pedestrians would care to do. The good news: They found no connection to cancer among amblers. However, slow-walkers are up to 2.4 times

Steven Mnuchin has just let it be known that he has more important things to do than changing the faces on the country’s $20 bill, among others. Currently, as you might know if you just got paid, it’s Andrew Jackson, an early Democrat, on the $20. He was a hero of the War of 1812 and a rough-hewn two-term president.

An ominous sign possibly presaging a struggle with Congress passing an administration supplemental budget request for aid to Texas over Hurricane Harvey damages and recovery. This may seem an arcane point to people living free of legislative mind-blinders. But it certainly contradicts these past years of talk about how much Republicans could get done if they controlled both houses of Congress and only got the White House too. Well, now they have it all. Yet, they still squabble over ideological notations on what to do. Perhaps you’ve noticed in all these orchestrated

Here’s an ominous little piece of news that got drowned in all the flood coverage of Hurricane Harvey. It was uncovered by Fox News’ prodigious intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge. It’s a letter from the foreign minister of Somalia, Yusuf Garaad Omar, to the U.S. Ambassador there, Stephen Schwartz. It warns that an al Qaeda affiliate, al-Shabab, has captured central areas of Somalia, a semi-arid country on the Horn of Africa that’s about 90% the size of Texas with about 57% of its 28 million population. Somalia and its capital Mogadishu is probably most familiar to Americans as

Here’s something everyone — Republicans, Democrats, you and me — should be able to agree on: We all pay too much in taxes and we need to cut them. Also, they’re too complicated. Should be able to agree on. But this is 2017 and Washington, D.C. And both parties are riven with disputing factions that not even a Noah-era hurricane can unite. And remember, this is a Congress — oh, look, it’s still on vacation — that is even less popular among Americans than the low-rated president. Donald Trump launched his campaign Thursday for

Bruce Willis, take the long weekend off. The largest asteroid in more than a century will tumble by Earth Friday in the closest encounter by anything that size in more than 100 years. The asteroid, named Florence, is one of millions of pieces of rocky, grey primordial space debris that’s been flying around our solar system for a few billion years. It will come within about four million miles of Earth, which seems pretty far. It is in terms of Interstate vacations with toddlers. But in the vast scale of space, four million miles is just around the corner, if

North Korean dictator Kim Jung-un has called for more missile launches targeting the Pacific Ocean, which is pretty hard to miss over there. Kim expressed “great satisfaction” over the success of his military’s recent missile launches, not all of which were actually successes, and said they form “a meaningful prelude” to containing the expansionist American territory of Guam, according to the Associated Press. A little more than 162,000 people live on the 210-square-mile island about 4,000 miles west of Hawaii and always a day ahead of the U.S. mainland. The island has assumed a much more prominent spot in the

Among the most compelling images coming from the Hurricane Harvey aftermath are volunteers and first-responders leading and even carrying strangers, fellow citizens through the historic flood to safety. Many of the rescued clutch beloved pets. But there are other compelling images of pets abandoned or separated from families, sitting hungry on swamped cars surrounded by miles of water, even swimming aimlessly in the vast muddy waters looking for somewhere to rest. In Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago an estimated 600,000 pets and livestock were lost in the winds and flooding. Thousands of pets have already been lost in the latest

A loose end from this year’s Trump White House turmoil was tied up nicely this week at the Vatican. Back in May when Sean Spicer was White House press secretary, he was along on President Trump’s trip to meet Pope Francis in Rome. A Long Island native and a devout Catholic, the 41-year-old father of two brought along some personal items for the Pope to bless as he does in such audiences. For some reason, Trump left Spicer’s name off the list of delegate members who would be admitted to attend the special audience. Whether simply thoughtless or an intentional

We’re sure to hear more about federal help today when President and Mrs. Trump visit two Texas cities to learn directly about the devastation and needs after Hurricane Harvey. “I think it’ll happen very quickly,” Trump said Monday. “It’ll go very fast.” Uh-huh, just like Obamacare repeal would start on Day One of a Trump administration and also go quite quickly, according to GOP Senate leadership. An early aid package could be attached to a temporary spending bill to prevent a government shutdown Oct. 1. In fact, a years-long, multi-billion dollar aid effort is already re-igniting hard feelings on Capitol Hill,

If people don’t want to go to the movies, you can’t stop them. That’s the worst decline in modern times and the first time since 2006 that midyear movie box office failed to reach $4 billion. Summer totals will probably limp in around $3.7 billion, which still seems like a fortune to us schlumps who are balking at paying $13 or more for a worn seat on a sticky floor and twice as much for a popcorn and drink. Summer attendance, experts say, is certain to be the worst in a quarter-century and maybe you can guess what that means

It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020. The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party. Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy. The Democratic Party does not just need a new leader, but a new

Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there. "I thought I was going to win," she said. The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper´s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea´s family. In an interview from her home on the CBS program "Sunday Morning" delving into her

Keep these numbers in mind: 316 to 90 and 80 to 17. They were the lopsided votes in the House and Senate in support of the deal President Trump made with Democratic leaders on storm aid, the debt limit and government funding. Remarkably, all the no voters were Republicans. The numbers shout that we are witnessing a potential turning point in the Trump presidency, one that could further shake up Washington and rattle the calcified political parties. Frustrated by the failure of GOP majorities in both chambers to pass his agenda, Trump followed through on threats to work with Democrats. Signs suggest it was

Jane Pauley asked Clinton on "CBS Sunday Morning." "Yes," Clinton responded. "As an active politician, it´s over. "I am done with being a candidate," she added. "But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country´s future is at stake."

The news that President Trump abandoned Republicans to strike a deal with congressional Democrats on a three-month extension of the debt limit yielded a predictable response from his predictable cheerleaders: It was brilliant and typically shrewd for the author of “The Art of the Deal” to take the very first offer the Democrats made and ask for nothing in return. Less obsequious observers on the right claimed this was the long-prophesied moment. The seventh seal had been broken. Donald Trump was “pivoting” at last. “The pivot is real and it’s spectacular!” proclaimed Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist. In the lexicon

Who would ever dream of handing political leadership to someone whose crowning career achievement was a high-paying no-show job? As its next presidential candidate, is Michelle Obama the best the Democrats can come up with? That´s the view of pollster Douglas Schoen, who thinks they don´t stand a chance otherwise.

Rob Ranco, a partner at the Carlson Law Firm, suggested Mrs. DeVos does not fully grasp how serious of a crime rape is, and that she might come to a different policy conclusion if she did. “I’m not wishing for it… but I’d be ok if #BetsyDevos was sexually assaulted,” Mr. Ranco said in a tweet on Friday evening. “Perhaps Betsy doesn’t understand how
