Hee hee...these cretins actually believe ‘science’ and ‘medicine’ advancements will be focused on prolonging their miserable worthless, non-contributing lives, don’t they? At present with the re-election of their Messiah, they are living a fool’s dream that is at best a couple of weeks deep with regard to the support structure that continues their oblivious existence. It’s a pity they’ll be the first to get ‘voted off the island’ in the death panel game.

Over the past two decades, what have the U.S. trends been for the following important measures of social health: high school dropout rates, college enrollment, juvenile crime, drunken driving, traffic deaths, infant mortality, life expectancy, per capita gasoline consumption, workplace injuries, air pollution, divorce, male-female wage equality, charitable giving, voter turnout, per capita GDP and teen pregnancy?

The answer for all of them is the same: The trend is positive.

It sounds like he may get his statistics from CNN.

I don’t have stats off the top of my head, but this report is saying that teen pregnancy is down. Okay, maybe it is. However, we have in the last couple of generations completely institutionalized the concept of out of wedlock pregnancy and broken homes and single mothers and other ad hoc living arrangements.

It’s not PC to talk about how we are raising so many of our children in less than ideal circumstances nowadays. So while teen pregnancy may be down, far more of the kids being born are not being raised in the best circumstances, with both mother and father in the home.

I know I just made a number of value judgements which you aren’t supposed to do in these politically correct times. Flame away.

What about the trend towards people in their 20s having massive student debt and no useful job skills to show for four more years of doing nothing but letting someone else take care of them, yet still feel entitled to the fruits of others’ labor?

It sounds like he may get his statistics from CNN. He left out voter fraud, class warfare, anti-Caucasionism, unemployment, taxes, DUIs, "missing" and murdered children, loss of freedoms and liberties, communism, no jobs for college graduates, loss of useful college degrees, autistic-acting children who are fixated on their cellphones, children without two parents, illegal immigration and anti-Christian bigotry.

There is nothing positive about giving up freedom. Our generation is much less free than our parents. And we won't even recognize the next unless we and our children can band together to vote out the godless wannabe totalitarians. The barbarians are inside the gate.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. --Ronald Reagan

"The answer for all of them is the same: The trend is positive."

Yes, life in the United States, for now, remains better than much of the rest of the world, but still, many insist on following one who has vowed to 'fundamentally transform' the nation.

Following important measures of social health:

1)high school dropout rates—Not for the blacks or Latino’s

2) college enrollment—We place the SAME high school dropouts in remedial college classes and Voila: call it increased college enrollment

3)juvenile crime-—whites have dropped: blacks rate is so high the media hides the stats

4) drunken driving—for whites it;s down—for illegals it has skyrocketed

5) traffic deaths—once again, illegals and minorities have a higher rate

6) manufacturing infant mortality—does this include the aborted?

7) life expectancy—For whites it’s gone up, minorities are falling, and the Homo’s have a MUCH shorter life expectancy then the media will admit,

8) workplace injuries...fewer workers in dangerous jobs due to increased productivity via technology; lawyers are still suing the sh!t out of companies for hot coffee etc.

9) divorce-—fewer marriages, more cohabit due to higher tax rates and generous social benifits for unwed mothers.

10) male-female wage equality—fewer blue collar jobs for men,

11) charitable giving-—ALWAYS more conservatives than lefties

12) voter turnout-—illegal and multiple votes cast by the dead ,

13) teen pregnancy-—please, MTV has shows about the joys of teen pregnancy.

small wonders of modern medicine that have improved our quality of life as well as our longevity: the anti-depressants ...

Pretty telling that anti-depressants are first on the liberal list. That's what makes liberals all so highly subject to suggestion.

You must go vote for the Democrat ... must vote Democrat ...

Evil is good ... evil is good ... evil is good ...

What??? Racist!!!

Somehow, employment and wealth failed to make the author's list of important things.

It's worthwhile to remember that in the Fall of 2001, an earthquake of 6.X hit the San Fransisco area, and 3 people died (from heart attacks, but they were counted as caused by the earthquake.) A few days later, a slightly less powerful earthquake hit Iran, and 30,000 people died as a result, mostly because their mud hut crushed them when it fell down.

Moral of the story; there is an enormous social value in the existence of building codes and the accumulated wealth and social will to comply with those building codes.

A lesson lost of the morally bankrupt social engineers who fail to recognize that one true law exists in nature; the parasite must be smaller than the host. If there are no Sharks, there are no Pilot Fish.

As the majority white middle class population decreases, the social statistics are only going to get worse and worse.
Had boomers kept the American cultural melting pot in institutions and culture, that would be different.

But we permitted liberals to ghettoize minority and white youth with the socialist slogan “don’t act white.” We permitted them to feminize and drug males. Well then, expect statistics to match the ghetto culture that has been imposed upon American children.

As go white males, so goes America.

Despite the propaganda of the LeftSM, the French millenials have experienced the lie that "The trend is positive" "from a longer view" and are ready to revolt. I only hope our millenials soon discover the error of their ways. But it's a tough battle to overcome the indoctrination by public schools, Hollywood 'culture', academia, and the LeftSM.

Are you better off than you were 20 years ago? For me, no. Not even close.
