    she calls herself the “World’s Meanest Mom,” but a Minnesota mother said she has a reason for selling her daughter’s dream truck on Craigslist. Amy Adams said her daughter “decided that her grades don’t matter, that she can disrespect myself and her siblings on a daily basis and that she has the right to skip school and run away from home.” Adams added her daughter, who was just about to get her driver’s license, “was on her ‘one more chance and the truck was getting sold.’ And, she blew that ‘one more chance’ on Monday when she decided to skip...

    A Halifax-area restaurant owner has sparked a social media uproar by complaining that a “frustrating new generation” of employees with a poor work ethic has helped kill her business. A Facebook post Tuesday from Kim Stacey, owner of the now-defunct Emma’s Eatery, cites several reasons for the closure - but much of the online jousting is over her decision to highlight what she describes as the entitled attitude of young Nova Scotians. In her post, Stacey complains that during the nine years the Eastern Passage eatery was open, young employees demanded to be “paid dearly” for working shifts that did...

    UConn creates new living and learning space for African-American male students. Some see overdue attention to this group's needs. Others see segregation.

Caitlyn Ricci, 21, moved out of her parents’ home in February 2013 — though the court documents filed by Ms. Ricci’s grandmother said the parents, Michael Ricci and Maura McGarvey, who are divorced, actually gave the boot to their daughter, the New York Daily News reported.

    For those of you that have children, or work with children, have you ever tried to talk to a tantruming child? Have you ever talked to a teen that thinks they know everything, and facts and reason simply don’t enter into their thinking? Have you ever tried to debate a liberal? Are you seeing the connection? That’s where we are, in my opinion. We are dealing with people that haven’t grown up yet, or never will. How else might you explain that liberal protests often end in vandalism, rioting, and abuse of others?

    As tempting as it is to view the machinations of the left in masterfully calculated Dr. Evil terms, today's progressive is better-understood as a ranting teenager, burdened with both a disordered view of freedom and typical adolescent entitlement issues. It's not that today's lefty is unintelligent; in fact, many are very bright. It's that he is emotionally underdeveloped. By disordered freedom, I mean the 1960s-influenced, "don't tell me what to do/I'll do whatever the hell I want to do" kind of freedom. Pope John Paul II summarized the flaw in such a stunted and animalistic view of our potential when...

You are left to do as you please throughout most of the day, and while there are a few things you are forced to do, such as go to school and eat your vegetables, these are inarguably for your betterment. There are few real worries when the necessities of survival are guaranteed by your parents, who allow you to be content and carefree. In a way, that’s true freedom. Read more:

    A lot of us have what is known as an “adult child.’’ It sounds like an oxymoron, but for those of us with offspring in their late teens and early 20s, the emphasis is more on the “child.’’ During the holidays, when my son (18) and daughter (23) were home, the house was full in most ways but empty in others. Empty tank of gas in the car. Empty roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. Empty pitcher of juice in the fridge. Out of fairness to my daughter, I should note that much of this was her brother’s doing....

There is much work to be done. In fact, there some arenas, in which liberals have made tremendous strides without Republicans taking too much notice. This week's Time magazine cover story (website), for instance, chronicles the rise of "the Twixters", a new sociological category to describe those 18 to 29 year olds who are essentially putting off the responsibility of adulthood.

    Taking a Deep Look Inside John Kerry's Character Written by Joan Swirsky Tuesday, October 19, 2004 Editor: This article was written in April, but its message is still highly relevant: During his primary campaign, John Kerry traveled on private jets, ate lavish dinners with his ever-present and presumably loving wife, was spared any criticsm from his competitors and was lionized by a leftist media. To recover from the extreme ''stress'' of this routine, the senator took a week's vacation at his wife's multimillion-dollar getaway in Idaho. Every eligible American voter must now ask: If simple campaigning made Kerry snap at...

    Whatever It Is, They’re Against It David C. Stolinsky, M.D. Wednesday, May 14, 2003 I don't know what they have to say, It makes no difference anyway. Whatever it is, I'm against it. – Groucho Marx in “Horse Feathers” Total negativism is an appropriate attitude for Groucho’s zany version of a college president. His ridiculous dance in an academic robe still makes us laugh. But negativism is not an appropriate attitude for citizens of a republic. It is still less appropriate for leaders of a great nation. And it’s not at all amusing. When a small child learns he can...

    When the 40-foot statue of Saddam Hussein was toppled in Baghdad on Wednesday, this observer saw more than a huge hunk of metal crashing to the ground.

    Nash not backpedaling from anti-war stance DALLAS -- Steve Nash, the Mavericks' All-Star guard and perhaps the NBA's most outspoken anti-war lobbyist, said Thursday that he has no plans to modify his stance. Nash reiterated his position after drawing criticism from a Texas statesman not known for critiquing his peers: Spurs center David Robinson. "From the start, I spoke out just because I don't want to see the loss of life," Nash said. "People are mistaking anti-war as being unpatriotic. This has nothing to do with the fact that I'm from Canada. This is a much bigger issue. But now...
