  • For First Time in Modern Era, Living With Parents Edges Out Other Living Arrangements for 18-34y.o.

    05/31/2016 1:19:52 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 65 replies
    Broad demographic shifts in marital status, educational attainment and employment have transformed the way young adults in the U.S. are living, and a new Pew Research Center analysis of census data highlights the implications of these changes for the most basic element of their lives – where they call home. In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household. 1 This turn of events is fueled primarily...

"For 10 years, you've had Lincoln Logs holding the damn thing up. Go look at it," he told a crowd of local politicians and construction trade and labor leaders who gathered Friday to hear him speak.

    During recent rally for his wife’s campaign, the 69-year-old ex-president was caught laying a kiss on a woman in the crowd. While politicians are known to shake hands and give the occasional cheek kiss, commenters have accused Slick Willie of crossing the line this time. “Yuck,” one commenter wrote. W”here’s Bill’s left hand? What’s with the woman clasping Bill’s neck?” Others agreed, saying, “Boy, he never stops does he, young or old.” As Radar readers recall, this is far from the first time that Bill has been accused of having inappropriate extramarital relationships.

    A predictable consequence of the move to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour will be the hastened transition from human to a more robotic work-force. A photo that went viral this week showed a robot "manning" the take-out window at McDonald's. You can expect to see more of this. Employers will, of course, be pilloried by the usual cast of economically-challenged Marxists in the political and chattering classes as heartless, sexist, homophobic racists, etc., who put profits before people. But the non-economically challenged among us realize that the increased use of robots is a completely rational response of...

The Republican presidential candidate used a similar line last month, when he told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he had not "quite recovered" from Clinton "shouting" the night before. On Friday, he acknowledged that it wasn't politically correct for him to say certain things about Clinton. "Do you think Hillary looks presidential?" Trump asked the crowd. "I don't think so." He then teased...

Now is a time for unity, a time to focus on what lies ahead in November. Bernie Sanders has brought to this campaign a dialogue that has been needed for far too long.

    This is what everyone is talking about--here is the full interview Jimmy Kimmel had with Donald Trump last night. It is 18.5 minutes long--no commercials. This is where Trump says he is willing to debate Bernie Sanders before the June 7th primary in CA. Also discussed is the rigged political system,the selection of the Vice President, how the nicknames for political figures were determined, and how Trump uses aliases for real estate deals. Also, Jimmy Kimmel presents Trump with a sequel Dr. Seuss-type book near the end that is adorable. Crowd reaction during the interview is excellent.

"The cackle, the facial expressions, and the predisposition to dominate males were the first behavioral clues," wrote Dr. Crumlin, referring to a known scientific fact that spotted hyena society is matriarchal; females are larger than males...

Speaking at an event in Amsterdam hosted by the Nexus Institute, the former presidential candidate discussed the rise of Trump, and of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. "What I fear is that people, kind of looking down their nose, will say the people that are supporting Donald Trump are a bunch of idiots. They're not. They're legitimately scared. They're fearful.

    On CNN Thursday afternoon, Chris Cuomo sat down with Hillary Clinton to discuss the recent conflicts in the Democratic party and what her strategy will be to defeat Trump, if she becomes the eventual nominee. Instead of asking hard-hitting questions that have been raised by Clinton’s critics, Cuomo followed the majority of the media’s example and asked Clinton sympathetic softball questions like, “Do you ever feel compelled to defend your honor [or] the honor of your husband?” and how she “gets up” after being “bullied” by Trump. Cuomo began by bashing Trump’s “heavily personal” “ugly” attacks against Clinton, bringing up...

    Famed Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is very popular on the speaking circuit, not just for his Watergate scalps but also for his stories of interviewing presidents and wannabe presidents. One story in his arsenal is about Hillary Rodham Clinton's reaction to former President George W. Bush telling Woodward that he doesn't think about his legacy. "History, we won't know. We'll all be dead," Bush said. Woodward told a National Association of Realtors meeting that Clinton was irked by those words, suggesting she would be more in control of her biography.

    America is an exceptional nation, and there are some things that can only happen in America. An American couple became so gay, that they ended up straight. First, some background. It is often said that, if you become too left-wing, then you are going to end up as a right-winger. The best example is Caucescu of Romania. Romania was a nation that allowed tax-payer funded abortion in 1945, without restrictions. This made the economy and military power of the country weak. Caucescu later criminalized abortion and contraception in the 1960s, and this improved the economy, so far as communist standards...

    Last summer when Donald Trump announced he was running for the GOP presidential nomination, few, if any, political pundits were willing to give him a chance. Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski, however, was willing to stick her neck out and buck conventional wisdom, saying Trump should not be underestimated and she predicted he may very well end up as the GOP nominee. That got a laugh out of Morning Joe regular Mike Barnicle, who was so certain that Trump had zero chance, he offered to buy Mika a brand-new truck if Trump won the nomination. As the months went by...

    Yummy! Doesn't the idea of eating newsprint and ink sound absolutely delicious? Okay, maybe not so great but Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank is making the best of his promise to eat his column if Donald Trump won the nomination.

To find out how Milbank has ended up perhaps munching on Op-Ed Spring Roll, let us revisit his October 2015 promise:

    The Daily Caller ^ | 5/3/2016 | Scott Greer & Conservative Pundit
    Why are figures at National Review and other places so easy to parody? This is the subject of my upcoming four-volume treatise on how to lose a culture war with class and décorum, so I don’t want to give away too much here, but suffice it to say I don’t think that the problem with respectable conservatism is just that they’re afraid of being called racist or sexist or homophobic. They certainly are afraid of that, yes, but I think that the deeper problem is they’ve fully internalized a whole raft of premises about race, about gender, about “sexual orientation”...

    I was introduced to this old song by a WWII-era Veteran friend of mine just last night. Perfect timing, I'd say. ---------------------------------- Those who are less than 100% fans of Donald Trump may consider voting for him to be Russian Roulette. BUT voting for the OPPOSITION means you shoot yourself and Lady Liberty FOR SURE...
