Millennials Offended by Suggestion
They Work Weekends

Individual tweets rarely deserve article-length analyses. In our social media–addled age, blithely drafted tweets too often lead to unforgiving shaming campaigns, which result, not infrequently, in ruined careers. But, once in a while, a 280-character-or-fewer remark actually accomplishes the Pollyannaish wishes of Silicon Valley techies: it provokes thought, sparks debate, inspires afflatus, and makes us consider the important things in life. A tweet from a cryptocurrency enthusiast named Ryan Selkis was roundly reviled by critics who are almost certainly leftists by persuasion. "If you don't work nights and weekends in your 20s, you're not going to have a successful career.

During Grad School I worked Saturdays and Sundays at a job some people did not want. After my MS degree I found another job (within 5 hours of leaving the campus) in the same field for more than double the salary.

These poor kids are so unprepared for real life. I imagine psychiatrists will make a killing over the next 20 years trying to teach them there are no participation trophies in real life.

While many of that generation are entitled brats, not all of them are. My son (29 years old) works nights, weekends, holidays, and is on call a lot. He worked at a nursing home while in high school, worked his way through college, then volunteered at a local free clinic through medical school. He's now chief radiology resident at a University hospital. I never spoiled him and he saw me work hard all his life. While I don't take credit for his success, I do take credit for instilling in him the value of hard work and treating others the way we would like to be treated. I think a lot of parents don't spend much time teaching their kids any values and it shows.

In 1975 I quit my music scholarship program. I could not take the pretentious self involved movement I was part of. I quit a couple of weeks too late and ended up with all F's on my record. Oh what? I took a job at an Italian supper club and worked 50 hours a week. Then as I advanced in Management and ran the kitchen I worked 80 hours per week and did this into management. We worked weekends. I remember taking an hour nap between opening at 7:00AM for prep cooking and 4:00PM opening...on the bar stools! We worked until 1:00AM! Then ran out and drank for an hour and started the whole thing again the next day!!! It was a blast and I loved it! We all did! Huge challenge both physically and mentally but we were in our 20's! I wish for the brain and body that I had then! Now I'm retired at age 66 and my body and mind are failing me! But I have the memories of working my tail off!

The Senate spectator gallery was at least half-empty throughout the first week of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and senators serving as the jury in the marathon sessions are taking notice — some stunned that there aren’t more people watching history unfold, while others understand the public avoiding the repetitive proceedings.“I’m really surprised at that because this is kind of historic and I would think this would be an opportunity for people to get in there regardless of whose side you are on,” Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) told The Post Friday.Journalists aren’t allowed to bring cellphones or cameras into the gallery, so the noticeably small audience

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler called President Trump a "dictator" during the fourth day of the Senate impeachment trial. "He is a dictator. This must not stand," said the Democratic House impeachment manager. "That is another reason he must be removed from office." Nadler, 72, argued that the president seeks to be "all-powerful," asserting no president has ignored congressional demands or subpoenas like he has. He concluded by arguing that not impeaching Trump would endanger the ability of Congress to check the power of the presidency.

Why, they opened up the door as wide as a double door on the Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Burisma issue. I guess that was their way of getting ahead of it. We will address it," Sekulow told reporters. Earlier, he also spoke on what he believes are "issues" surrounding the Ukraine controversy. Sekulow questioned the Democratic Party's involvement in the funding of the dossier by British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

Cleaning, cooking, raising the children and putting her husband’s every need first — it’s all in a day’s work for the rising number of women in their 30s and 40s who class themselves as a so called ‘Tradwife’.Raised to believe they could have it all, they’ve had a go at smashing the glass ceiling but have since quit their careers for a more submissive life at home that has echoes of 1950s Britain.Back then, with scant opportunities beyond the home, women had little choice but to be housewives, and many longed to cast off the shackles of domestic life.Small wonder, then, that critics have denounced the Tradwife trend

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame's status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she's an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent. Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population. Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

President Trump on Friday becomes the first U.S. President to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., a march he previously addressed via video, a march sure to be ignored by the lamestream media or downplayed as a gathering of white supremacists. It reflects his belief that every human life begins at conception and is a gift from God and reflects the fear, an unspoken motive for impeachment, that Trump will get to appoint more Supreme Court justices forming a majority to overturn the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade, another SCOTUS decision which, like Dred Scott, declared an entire class of people as less than human.

New York - The Pentagon has announced that 34 US service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries resulting from the Iranian missile attack on US forces in Iraq earlier this month, in spite of Donald Trump's downplaying of the wounds as "headaches". The strike came following Mr Trump's decision to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, and the US said at the time that no American personnel were injured. Since then, Mr Trump has acknowledged that the Americans had been injured, but downplayed their significance. According to the Pentagon, eight of the service members were flown to the US from Germany for treatment, nine are still receiving treatment in Germany,

The off-field spat began Thursday evening on Twitter, when Tennessee GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn quoted the commanding officer of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as saying that Vindman was a "political activist in uniform.”

The encounter took place during a Warren campaign stop in Grimes, Iowa. After the event, Warren greeted well-wishers who waited to shake her hand on the ‘selfie line.’ At one point, a man who appeared in his 40s or 50s stepped up a few feet from Warren and demanded to get his money back after paying off his daughter’s student loans.

As the drama of Harry and Meghan unfolds, it becomes ever clearer that Harry is not a figure of tragedy, but of self-interested hypocrisy. The prince is not only dull, but the cause of dullness in others, more a figure of betrayal than of sacrifice. The psycho-drama of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is one of spoiled individuals shedding crocodile tears over their fate. In his final speech on January 18, 2020 in London, Harry delivered what was in essence an address about himself, mentioning as always the impact of his mother Diana on him but never mentioning his father, Prince Charles, who has been financing him.

Portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama will tour the nation from June 2021 through May 2022 so more people can make the “pilgrimage” to see them. Artists Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald are the first black artists ever included in the National Portrait Gallery’s (NPG) official roster of presidential portraits. Their work has proven extremely popular, to the point of National Portrait Gallery director Kim Sajet characterizing visits to see them as a sort of “pilgrimage.” In a 2019 article for The Atlantic, Sajet wrote: “Viewing these paintings was turning into a form of secular pilgrimage, and the museum was becoming even more popular as a communal gathering place.”

Bad (or sick) guy!” The response from Trump’s opposition was outrage. The Washington Post fact checker gave it four Pinocchios. The director of the FBI, James Comey, rebuked Trump and said such a thing had never happened. James Clapper, Obama’s director of national intelligence, assured NBC’s Meet the Press that no warrants had been issued in 2016 to surveil members of the Trump campaign.
