    Musician Micah Tyler had no idea when he made a hilarious video about millennials for his church that it would catch fire the way it has. Set to the tune of the classic “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” written by Paul McCartney the singer lampoons man buns, Instagram posts and yoga pants while he sings “Gotta Love Millennials.”

    Jazz Shaw wrote yesterday on this, showing a lot of concern about the Harvard IOP poll reporting capitalism has only a 42% approval rating by millennials. He’s got really good points, but only partially mentions the fact socialism isn’t doing that much better with young people. Here’s what the poll found (emphasis mine): Majority of 18- to 29-Year-Olds Reject Both Socialism and Capitalism. When 18- to 29-year-old young Americans were asked whether or not they support socialism, capitalism, and other political theories and labels, a majority reject both socialism and capitalism. Socialism is supported by 33% of young Americans,...

    >High home prices are pushing three groups of people out of big, expensive cities: low-income workers, people in rural-based industries, and millennials. Trulia data scientist Mark Uh examined how the affordability crisis is pricing out various income groups.Using data from the 2014 five-year US Census American Community Survey, Uh looked into migration patterns away from the biggest — and often most expensive — cities.He wrote in a post Thursday, "Millennials accounted for the largest share of out migration [by age group] at 51.1%, and they also had the highest move-away rate relative to expectation at +105.6%."Although Millennials moved out at...

    We all know the scary statistic by now: a recent YouGov survey shows that millennials have much more favorable views of socialism than of capitalism. For someone like me who survived one of the worst socialist regimes in human history (communist China), this result is beyond heart-breaking. There's no doubt that millennials do not understand what socialism is. They never learned about the atrocities and human sufferings socialism has caused. It's not the fault of the millennial generation, but the fault of our education system. For those of us who lived through socialism, we have a moral duty to...

    When Bernie Sanders came within a few coin flips of beating Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses, it signaled the Democratic Party's astounding march toward an outright embrace of socialism. Young Democrats overwhelmingly supported the avowed socialist senator from Vermont, with 84 percent of those under 30 backing him. National polls show similar results. Only voters older than 45 in Iowa went strongly for Hillary Clinton, who has managed to avoid the socialist label while advocating policies that often mirror those of Sen. Sanders. People familiar with the shocking historical record of socialist countries may scratch their heads in amazement....

    The Pew Research center has consistently found that millennials are no more likely than older generations to agree that its more important to control ownership than protect the right of Americans to own guns. In fact, a Reason-Rupe poll, that I helped conduct in 2013, found that millennials were the least likely to say that government should prohibit people from owning assault weapons: 63% of 18-34 year olds thought people should be allowed to own assault weapons, compared to 54% of 35-54 year olds and 36% of those 55 and over.

    Cry me a river on cable TV, Mr. President. But do not set your sights on my generation's natural right to self-defense. Every generation of human beings has a natural right to self-defense. Reason tells us that we have a right to protect our private property and our first piece of private property is our body. Yet even more than my parents and grandparents—who certainly faced their own challenges—my Millennial peers face a historic threat to their right to self-defense. Politico wrote last week that Millennials are Obama's "prime target" for his agenda on "gun control." Let me be clear:...

    Many of you may be stunned by that question. After all you may be thinking what Donald Trump may have to do with John F. Kennedy, other than one wants to be president and one was president. The only other thing may be that in Trump's mind that his looks are as enduring as JFK's. But there is one way the respective presidential campaigns of the two men have something in common. You may remember not many people took seriously Kennedy's campaign for the 1960 nomination. He was the junior senator from Massachusetts who, for seven years prior to running,...

    Apparently, Detroit Millennials get a lot of bang for their buck. In comparison to cities like New York or San Francisco where Millennials can only afford 165-square-feet and 135-square-feet, respectively, Millennials in Detroit can afford a whopping 3,205-square-foot abode. That number is larger than the national average size of a newly-constructed single-family home, which was 2,453-square-feet in 2014.

Mary Lambright was attempting to haul a 53-foot box trailer containing 43,000 pounds of bottled water to a Walmart parking lot with her Volvo truck on Christmas Day in Paoli, Indiana. She drove onto the iron 1880 structure and immediately hit the top of the bridge as her truck was too high. The structure then buckled the under the pressure and collapsed at around...

    As a follow-up to my earlier post on the age problem facing the Democratic Party, a new poll from a Democratic pollster shows that the risk for the Left is actually much larger than The Hill assumes. The poll from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner shows a significant opportunity for Democrats to narrowly take control of the Senate in 2016, but that millennials are barely engaged in the election. Nor are other Democratic constituencies generating anywhere near the heat of Republicans, gearing up for some of their own hope and change after eight years of Obama. Here’s the key graph from the...

    The old issues of class, race and geography may still dominate coverage of our changing political landscape, but perhaps a more compelling divide relates to generations. American politics are being shaped by two gigantic generations – the baby boomers and their offspring, the millennials – as well as smaller cohorts of Generation X, who preceded the millennials, and what has been known as the Silent Generation, who preceded the boomers. Both the boomers and the Silents gradually have moved to the right as they have aged. Other factors underpin this trend, such as the fact that boomers are overwhelmingly white...

    According to the experts, much of the Millennial generation is besotted with the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. Note: Millennials are the largest voting bloc by age. Born between 1981 and 2000, and mostly in their 20s and early 30s, many Millennials are showing up at rallies of the self-proclaimed “Democratic Socialist” U.S. senator from Vermont and cheering his diatribes against “the billionaire class.” Like the Baby Boomers and Gen Xers before them, many Millennials are highly educated. You’d think they’d be wary of anyone sporting a socialist brand. With the glaring exception of Bernie Sanders, modern-day progressives go out of...

    THE time-honored way to speak of young people is with horror. They’re wild, reckless, irresponsible, narcissistic, immoral and hopeless — and always have been. Now along comes this generation of millennials, and we have a problem. They are raised on “service projects,” apply to Teach for America in torrents and donate to charity at a higher rate (87 percent) than their elders. Basically, they’ve stabbed us older generations in the back with their idealism and altruism, robbing us of the opportunity to feel superior. One of the exemplars of this trend, also catering to it, is Barbara Bush, 33. Yes,...

When asked about the moral acceptability of a range of issues, five of the top six issues that saw an increase in acceptability were related to sexual morality. The largest increase in moral acceptability from 2001 to 2015 was for homosexual relations, which increased 23 percentage points, from 40 to 63 percent. That was followed by having a baby outside of marriage (45 to 61 percent), heterosexual sex outside of marriage (53 to 68 percent), divorce (59 to 71 percent) and polygamy (7 to 16 percent).

Millennials are the first modern generation to have their potential for success obstructed by government policies, a little-discussed topic analyzed in “Disinherited: How Washington Is Betraying America’s Young,” a forthcoming book by the Manhattan Institute’s Diana Furchtgott-Roth and Jared Meyer. The authors credit the bleak prospects of millennials to the decades-long trend in Washington of expanding regulations and benefits that favor older generations while disregarding...

    Unions are in trouble. Membership is declining, public pension plans are dangerously underfunded, and young workers are not interested in diverting a portion of their paychecks to dues that offer them few benefits in return. Half the states have passed “right to work” legislation that says that workers cannot be forced to join a union as a condition of employment. In the face of these challenges, the union membership rate has fallen to a 100-year low. Membership rates continue to fall as traditionally unionized industries such as steel and textiles move offshore and younger workers choose the non-union sector. Only...

    Millennials aren't earning as much money as their parents did when they were young. They came of age during tough economic times — student debt has reached an all-time high and the job market is more competitive than ever. While this is bad news for the millennial generation as a whole, it is especially so for millennial women, who still face a gender wage gap. The Institute for Women's Policy Research recently analyzed data from the US government and released a report that provides state by state comparisons of women's earnings and several compelling charts. One of the charts reveals...

And about equal numbers say homosexuality is morally wrong (38 percent) and morally acceptable (42 percent). Another 13 percent say it depends on the situation, while 7 percent declined to answer.What's most interesting, though, is when...

How will the legacy of Generation X be written from this point forward?

    Surprised? So were the researchers who tested and compared workers in 23 countries. We hear about the superior tech savvy of people born after 1980 so often that we tend to assume it must be true. But is it? Researchers at Princeton-based Educational Testing Service (ETS) expected it to be when they administered a test called the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). Sponsored by the OECD, the test was designed to measure the job skills of adults, aged 16 to 65, in 23 countries. When the results were analyzed by age group and nationality, ETS got...

    When Pastor Adam Phillips moved across the country with his wife two years ago and planted a new congregation in Portland, Ore., he was heeding the call of his Christian roots, an Evangelical Covenant tradition that today has a primary mission “to reach young people, engage a growing multiethnic population, and develop vibrant local churches that make disciples.” “Pastor Adam,” as his congregation at Christ Church: Portland calls him, was well suited for such a mission. Young, familiar as much with Tumblr as with theological tomes, and a former director of faith mobilization for the ONE Campaign, the antipoverty group...

    There is a lot to be confused by at the new Web site, Millennials for Jeb. Millennials, who are officially* referred to as #Millennials, often shun the sort of aggregated group identity that's implied by a call for the entire generation to vote for the former Florida governor. And yet, here's a Web site encouraging all however-many-million of them to turn out and vote. For Jeb. "Despite the potential to be a real political force, only 21% of Millennials cast a ballot in the 2014 election," the site reads. "We believe this shows that the current political system does not...

    Like many others, I have jumped on board the Timehop train. Timehop is an app that presents itself as “a time capsule of you,” and digs up social media activity from years past on that day from connected apps—Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Normally, these posts are funny or cringe-worthy—let’s just say I was a big fan of posting song lyrics as Facebook statuses during my teen years—but today I saw one that gave me pause: My first thought was, “wait…who do I know that died six years ago today?” Eventually I figured it out: it was a patient I had...

    Okay so I recently hired a few recent college grads in technical roles and a conversation was struck up at the end of the day. The conversation was a result of a missed movie reference during another conversation earlier in the day. The type of thing where you assume some level of common culture so you don't have to explain in more detail. What follows in my comment was the result and follow-on question for my fellow Freepers.

    The media claim we don’t exist. OK, that’s a slight exaggeration. But after all, we’re Millennials, born during the Reagan administration. We’re supposed to be of the generation that is embracing same-sex marriage in droves. Instead, we’re standing strong on upholding the truth about what marriage is. We’ve been asked—repeatedly—whether the position we’re promoting is pointless. Are we willing to endure cultural scorn for holding to a position as supposedly outmoded as natural marriage? Politicos and pundits offer hyperbolic missives on how conservatives are losing young Americans, who are likely to be more libertarian on social issues. The preferred talking...

    I periodically share polling data on issues ranging from which nations most support capitalism to the degree to which government is a leading cause of stress.Or how about the poll of Americans on the best and worst Presidents since World War II, or the survey data on what share of government spending is wasted.Today, weÂ’re going to expand on that collection by reviewing some potential good news about attitudes of young people and attitudes about guns. But this isnÂ’t about how young people owning guns, or how they feel about guns.Instead, weÂ’re going to review two separate pieces of information,...

    The "Black Lives Matter" protest movement continues to reverberate on campuses. At Oberlin College this week, the president rejected a petition signed by more than 1,000 students demanding no failing grades this semester. Student activism over decisions by grand juries not to indict police officers for the deaths of unarmed back men in Missouri and New York remains strong. And unlike most student protest movements, this one has extended into finals -- and has some students asking for flexibility on grades or exams, and others taking the unusual step of protesting in libraries during a period when student stress about...

    Millennials are increasingly more pro-life and supportive of restrictions on abortion than their parents' generation, according to polling data taken over the last decade, and pro-life leader credit medical technology for this growing trend. Lila Rose, president of the pro-life group Live Action, told The Christian Post in a recent interview that advances in ultrasound technology is just one of the many reasons why teenagers and people in their 20s are joining the movement. "There's a window into the womb with ultrasound. Just having the look into the womb you can see, even in the first trimester, the early development...

    Time is money. And the Millennial generation, which is now making headlines for its low savings rate, seems to have missed that lesson completely. Astoundingly, a new study by Moody's Analytics says most adults under age 35 have a savings rate of negative 2 percent! In fact, Millennials are taking on so much debt, and saving so little, that their net worth is actually declining as a group. It's become a lifestyle habit to spend all you earn -- and more. Just look around the fancy restaurants, the chic hotel bars, the designer clothing stores -- and you will see...

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- President Barack Obama's job approval rating in 2014 among white 18- to 29-year-olds is 34%, three points higher than among whites aged 30 and older. This is the narrowest approval gap between the president's previously strong support base of white millennials and older white Americans since Obama took office.
