Most Millennials Are Finding
It Hard to Transition Into
Adulthood: Report

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch. "And without schooling, you can´t get a job that

Kyle shouldn´t fret he can get a job at the Washington Post and write from his Mom´s basement like the rest of their reporters.

Life is made up of little choices and some of those determine the future. The biggest problem with most millennials is that they don´t choose the challenging thing.
I watched so many kids go off to college and come home with a degree that was useless. They chose the easy major that would not cause them stress or interfere with their fun in college.

So when my girls went off to college I told them that they had four years in the best college they could get into. They would graduate with no debt, but then they were financially on their own. So if you choose to major in psychology or communications, be ready to live your life on a Bed Bath and Beyond salary. They both chose engineering.

Unlike #2, a lot parents helped make these kids into the helpless buttercups they are. I read yesterday about the distraught Starbucks barista who had a meltdown because making unicorn frappaccinos was giving him sticky fingers. Imagine if he were working in a job where he would really come home dirty.

Mike Rowe is the sage of our time. There are literally hundreds of thousands of jobs - well-paid jobs - that go unfilled every day. That is because they often require skilled training that today´s kids do not have the patience for. It takes the willingness to take direction, fail, learn from your failure, and move on, skills that today´s kids lack. It requires leaving safe spaces where comfort is the opiate of the perpetual child masses.

Wanna learn how to make good money? Well, point your diaper dandy to this website. It´s a start.

#2´s comments are right on. There are many kids who should not go to college. They are academically not prepared, choose ridiculous majors, incur lots of debt before they flunk out and cannot find a job much beyond minimum wages

Many who do go and are academically successful and graduate have majored in one of these ridiculous majors. They then compound their problems by going for a Master´s Degree in this worthless major, incur more debt and still cannot find a job that will enable them to be financially independent ( hence Mom´s basement is the alternative). As # 2 said...it is all about choices and the millennial bunch makes some very terrible choices. But of course they know best!!!!!!!

When I was in college, many years ago, ROTC was mandatory for male Freshmen and Sophmores. It really helped a lot of guys grow up. I wish it could be brought back for both male and female students. At least we would see some discipline on our campuses.

Everyone in my family got scholarships and/or worked -and lived at homer. While my brothers managed to work and go to day school, I went at night. Dad took card of room and board plus medical. We did the rest. Very few people go to the top schools-unless like my Dad you live in the same town-townies can find a way! The rest of us go to small colleges then get our Masters at a better University. It is not that hard.

I thought the article made some good points. Jobs in factories used to provide a basic income for many ´low skilled´ employees, which was good for those not cut-out for college. Some of those people would advance to more complex jobs. Now that route has been pretty much cut off. They are at a dead end at age 25.

The only thing I learned that was worth while from a lout of a father was: "There are three ways to make excellent honest money: Get a job doing something nasty that no one else wants to do, or something dangerous that few have the courage to do or something smart that few can do. You will always be in demand and make great money. Everyone can do jobs that are clean, safe and require no smarts. Thus those jobs don´t pay well but they are plentiful."

I have always been puzzled by people holding a degree who work as servers at Starbucks or Pizza joints.

How did Skippy´s minister put it...."The chickens have come home to roost." Combine the teachers´ union, lazy parenting, participation trophies, political correctness, and a child into a large cauldron and mix for eighteen or twenty years and out pops a confused, mind-numbed, self-important person...but still a child.

No construction work? Ha. Everywhere I look there´s construction going on. These snowflakes run from hard work. They´re used to everything handed to them on silver platters with no consequence for failure, and then when it´s time to go out and grow up they are little lost whiners who think they know everything. I´m so afraid for the future of our country.

I have a friend who is an electrician at a local power plant and is in his mid-thirties. He recently acquired a 20-something trainee. Well, hard-hat crews being what they are gave this kid some good natured razzing which the kid did not take well at all. He called his MOM who told him to tell this crew they should not be mean to him. seriously??

Well, he went back to the crew and told them exactly that. Needless to say he unleashed a boatload of misery upon himself. My friend found the kid´s hard hat and painted it pink (didn´t have snowflake decals though). The kid quit after two days.

I guess the power plant did not have a ´safe place´ or puppies to pet. That will probably be the next ´big thing´ for work places nationwide.

Spot on #13. Universities teach our next generation what (not ´how´) to think and feeeeel, and how to be a mindless foot-soldier in the army needed to take down the nation from within. To that end - they´re doing a good job.

The Me generation did a crappy job of passing down the principles and advantages they were given.
The rise of divorce, working moms, and latch key kids gave rise to a generation who pretty much raised themselves.
Couple that with an abysmal education system, which narcissistic parents pretty much ignored, and a damaged economy, and lots of kids have it rough.

#12 is spot on.

Traditionally, men occupied most positions in industries such as manual labor and construction work. With those mostly gone, male wages have been hit harder than "women who started off behind" but excelled in school and college, Carnevale said.

NBC is clueless as to who has taken these jobs. I´m positive every single person here knows who has taken those jobs.

I teach first-semester calculus-based physics. The biggest thing I see now is many students want good grades but do not want to challenge themselves. I became a physicist because it was difficult. I knew that if I could figure it out and make a career of it, that I would have a job. For the most part, this has been true. Kids give up too easy! A C on your report card is not the kiss of death if you learned valuable lessons along the way.

After a lifetime of being told you are exceptional by your parents, teachers and professors, all the while never having to be barely competent, it´s a hard lesson looking for that first job and finding out you´re not all that. That, and wanting to start out making big bucks and enjoying the same lifestyle you had at home practically guarantees disappointment. To them I say, ever heard of overtime or working weekends? I know... I know... evenings and weekends are for partying.

I entered my 20s as a sailor. That teenage choice paid for my college attendance. Picking a "wanted" grad skill paid for my grad schooling. It seems to be advantageous to select work and morally helpful opportunities such as those requiring night work or weekend work.
It´s about stepping out and waking into to the future by following parental and historical advice.

There is a lot of eye rolling after reading this dreck. Suck it up buttercup. You and your parents need to grow up.

Stopping the draft and taking prayer out of schools ruined this country. Look at old HS yearbooks. They looked and acted like adults. Most of them didn´t have someone to bail them out or let them live at home. They didn´t have new cars either.

There are plenty of managers and assistant managers without college earning $45k to over $70k in my local grocery store. They are expected to work however.

College ? They sound like they need daycare.

There’s No ‘Nazi’ Exception to the First Amendment

Posted By: garnet- 8/17/2017 8:02:36     Post Reply
Piers Morgan is at it again: Morgan is echoing an idea that has been advanced repeatedly in the last couple of days: To wit, that there is something particular about Nazism that makes it ineligible for protection under the Bill of Rights. This is flat-out wrong. And, more than that, it’s dangerous. Abhorrent and ugly as they invariably are, there simply is no exception to the First Amendment that exempts Nazis, white supremacists, KKK members, Soviet apologists, or anyone else who harbors disgraceful or illiberal views.

This week, the CBS News program “On Assignment” included a long feature on what it described as the near eradication of Down syndrome in Iceland. As the story unfolded, viewers learned of the impact of genetic screening and abortion on a countrywide scale. On that tiny island, known to people mostly for its geothermal pools and Northern Lights, what one scientist called “heavy-handed genetic counseling” has led to the death in utero of nearly every boy and girl affected by Down syndrome. The CBS News report focused on a single nation, but the trend toward elimination of children with Down syndrome is tragically

A government failure in Charlottesville
Washington Examiner, by Editorial    Original Article

Saturday´s ugly events in Charlottesville culminated in a neo-Nazi protestor plowing his car into a crowd of his adversaries. He allegedly killed Heather Heyer, a young woman who had been excercising her right to free speech. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is rightly giving a high priority to the investigation, and President Trump has finally gotten around to issuing a proper condemnation of the white nationalists who brought their hate-fest to Charlottesville. Yet beyond this, Saturday´s events represent a serious failure of government. Neither the death of Heyer nor the general mayhem were inevitable. They could have been prevented if authorities there

There is nothing "right" about racism and hate. It’s a learned disease, and the best antidote is unity. This weekend’s events involving white supremacist groups are as disturbing and disgusting as they are heartbreaking. The attack was a stark reminder of the darkness of hate. We must come together, as we have before, to confront the issues that chip away at the very foundation of who we are and what we stand for as a country. Unfortunately, the people of South Carolina know this type of domestic terrorism all too well. Our response to the events in Charlottesville, Va., should mirror

If you are one of those hidebound individuals who believe that the distribution of taxpayer funds from the U.S. Treasury is a congressional prerogative clearly delineated in Article I of the Constitution, Judge Thomas C. Wheeler of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has some bad news for you. Wheeler has handed down summary judgments ordering the government to pay two separate insurers a total of $266 million that Congress has declined to appropriate. He awarded Moda Health $214 million in February and, two weeks ago, he awarded $52 million to Molina Healthcare pursuant to Obamacare’s unfunded “risk corridor” program.

Democrats have been given an enviable political landscape, with an opposition president at a historically low approval rating and scandal besetting his White House. But they risk potentially blowing it due to a lack of central leadership, diffuse organizational structures and disputes over tactics and issues. That’s the fear that some top officials harbor as they gear up for the 2018 elections: that the party has yet to learn its lessons from the 2016 cycle; that a horde of newly organized political groups are drawing money away from party infrastructure; and that a lack of a singular leader has complicated the

In the middle of the Justice Department’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information during the 2016 campaign, Phoenix ABC morning anchor Christopher Sign broke the bombshell news that Attorney General Loretta Lynch held a clandestine meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Obviously a secret conversation between Clinton’s husband and the attorney general overseeing her investigation raised alarms among many Americans. But as was so frequently the case from the years 2008-2016, major media reporters were less than enthusiastic in the face of a potential major Obama administration scandal. Newly released emails showed Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky doggedly pursued the

The Democratic Party is tearing itself apart, with the forever war between the leftist Bernie Sanders and centrist Hillary Clinton wings of the party erupting once again into open think-piece warfare over the last week. Bodies are strewn everywhere from The New Republic to The Washington Monthly. Left-on-left Twitter looks like Day 110 of The Battle of the Somme. But while the struggle for the party´s ideological soul is important, it is a massive distraction from the critical work of containing the menace of the Trump administration. Messy internecine fighting is also unnecessary. Democrats are being pulled inexorably to the left

Would a fair society have exactly the same percentage of men and women, of whites and blacks and Hispanics and Asians, in every line of work and occupational category? If your answer is yes, and you think that any divergence from these percentages must necessarily result from oppression, then you qualify for a job at Google. If not, forget about it. In your own life, you may have observed that few occupational categories — certainly not that of Google engineers — have such gender and ethnic percentages.

While GOP quislings like Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander cobble together a plan to save the health care “reform” law they promised to repeal, and the Democrats demand a new stream of taxpayer money for insurance company bailouts, Obamacare is destroying the foundation of our medical delivery system. During 2016, twenty-one hospitals were forced to close. During the first two months of 2017, another five went under. The facilities that you count on for major medical care are closing at a rate of two per month, and the pace of hospital closures has been steadily accelerating since Obamacare was launched.

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar. "He has done nothing to turn me away from

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, also said Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.” (Snip) Trump, he said, needs “to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself, move way beyond himself, and move to a place where daily he’s waking up thinking about what is best for

He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Thursday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. ´He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,´ said Scarborough. ´The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.´ Scarborough then added: ´He has chosen
