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

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.

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.

Trump Makes the Right Decision
on Afghanistan... and Pakistan
PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/22/2017 8:05:36     Post Reply
Immediately after Donald Trump´s Afghanistan speech, Lindsey Graham -- not always the president´s biggest fan -- praised the address and noted Trump was smart to leave the actual direction of day-to-day conduct of warfare to those trained to do it: the generals. He contrasted Donald with Obama, whom Graham called a "bad general." True enough, but it´s worse. Obama wasn´t just a bad general or even an atrocious one. Consciously and/or unconsciously, he was on the other side. Sound exaggerated? Then ask yourself this -- why would a man as intelligent as Barack Obama 1. telegraph his intentions and pull-out date to

Never Let an Opioid
Crisis Go to Waste
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/21/2017 5:56:33     Post Reply
When the Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis advised the President to declare a national emergency to deal with the overdose epidemic, HHS Secretary Tom Price wisely suggested that this step wouldn’t be particularly useful: “[T]he opioid crisis at this point can be addressed without the declaration of an emergency.” Price is, of course, a physician who understands the public health implications of opioid addiction. He is also a former congressman who knows what kind of mischief the federal government gets up to when “solving” a crisis. Price was in Congress when the “uninsured crisis” spawned Obamacare.

When filling in for Joe Pags on his eponymous nationally-syndicated radio show on Monday, I thought my analysis of the president’s comments two days earlier following the Charlottesville riots and the death of Heather Heyer was “fair and balanced”: The president didn’t say anything factually wrong but his not specifically calling out Nazis and the KKK represented the biggest political miscalculation of his presidency. Mr. Trump’s political opponents claim that he is a racist, or at least that he has too much sympathy for racism. I do not believe those claims to be true. Even though Trump was correct that there

Al Sharpton just may be right about the need to remove offensive statues from the American public way. I´d been somewhat torn on the idea of erasing history by tearing down statues, even Civil War Confederate statues, since destroying public imagery and iconography isn´t the kind of thing Americans do. Actually, it´s the kind of thing that ISIS does. But Sharpton, the noted race hustler, helped me see things in a different way.Usually, I don´t listen to him. But he was interviewed on the Charlie Rose program and talked compellingly about the need to remove statues of white men of the South who

Repealing ObamaCare Is The Key
To Restoring Economic Growth

For the last seven-plus years, Republicans ran on repealing and replacing ObamaCare. It was a winning platform, demonstrated by their gaining seats in Congress in almost every election since Obama was elected in 2008 — achieving a majority in the House in 2010, a majority in the Senate in 2014, and finally the White House in 2016. And with President Trump stating that he is anxious to sign a "repeal" or a "repeal and replace" bill into law, passage seemed like a sure thing. Yet so far the Senate has failed to pass a bill. But there is still a way

HOW DARE HE? President Donald J. Trump stood before journalists on Tuesday and said the unsayable: “I think there is blame on both sides.” Rather than denounce only the execrable white supremacists and swastika-wielding neo-Nazis who organized Saturday’s hate-o-rama in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump observed that there was violence coming from the KKK side and from extreme Leftists who opposed them with force — not with tranquility, as did those at a peaceful vigil Wednesday night. The reaction to Trump’s comments was as swift as it was vitriolic: “We can truly say his words have absolutely emboldened white supremacists,” said CNN’s veteran anchor Anderson Cooper. The

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.

Eliminating Down Syndrome Children

Daily Signal, by Chuck Donovan     Original Article

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.

Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration.

Some of the moments during the campaign, she said, “baffled” her. The book comes out Sept. 12, but audio excerpts, read by Clinton herself, were played on MSNBC on Wednesday morning.

Barron is the youngest son of Donald Trump and the only child the president shares with Melania Trump. Time and time again Barron has proved that he’s just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House.

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon.

His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
