    Fred Deutsch didn't set out to be a trailblazer. He just wanted to protect kids. But if his South Dakota bill stops children from being mutilated, then all of the nasty emails will have been worth it. At least in one state, hurting teens will have a chance at a normal life -- not the suffering so many activists are pushing them toward. When legislators bundled up for work this morning in Pierre, some of them were on their way to make history. For the first time in America, a state was holding a hearing on whether minors under 16...
  • Study: Teenagers Who Don't Date Have Better Social Skills, Less Depressed

    With all of the social and personal turmoil that develops during the teenage years, a new study finds teens who hold off on dating have better social skills, are happier, and are less depressed. This finding goes against American culture in terms of every movie or television show that portrays teenagers in high school. Some believe that dating is just a part of being a teenager. Forming a romantic relationship for the first time can help in a teenager's own self-esteem. Researchers at the University of Georgia say that's true, but they've also found that not dating could be even...

    Here's a suggestion. How about setting up some high school rifle clubs? Students would bring their own rifles to school, store them with the team coach and, after classes, collect them for practice. You say: "Williams, you must be crazy! To prevent gun violence, we must do all we can to keep guns out of the hands of kids." There's a problem with this reasoning. Prior to the 1960s, many public high schools had shooting clubs. In New York City, shooting clubs were started at Boys, Curtis, Commercial, Manual Training and Stuyvesant high schools. Students carried their rifles to school...
  • I Went to a Socialism Conference. Here Are My 6 Observations.

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 15, 2019 | Jarrett Stepman
    While you were enjoying your Fourth of July weekend, I was attending a national conference on socialism. Why? Because socialism is having its moment on the left. Since there’s often confusion as to what socialism really is, I decided to attend the Socialism 2019 conference at the Hyatt Hotel in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. The conference, which had the tag line “No Borders, No Bosses, No Binaries,” contained a cross-section of the most pertinent hard-left thought in America. Among the sponsors were the Democratic Socialists of America and Jacobin, a quarterly socialist magazine. The walls of the...
  • Jobs are plentiful, but Idaho teens aren’t working

    Though their population has increased, there are fewer Idaho teenagers in the workforce than there were 20 years ago. In 1998, more than 25,000 Idahoans between the ages of 14 and 18 were employed, two decades later, about 24,500 Idaho youngsters earn a paycheck, according to government data. That four percent drop in the number of young employees today versus 1998 is amplified by the fact that Idaho’s population was 1.2 million then, and 1.7 million now. The state’s total workforce has grown by 35 percent. And while policymakers are stoked about Idaho’s unemployment rate remaining below 3 percent, the...

    WASHINGTON — Medical doctors and a mom of a trans-identifying child are urging the government to shut down medical operations that are harming children. Their efforts to resist the medicalization of gender has led them to discover that government-funded research now allows wrong sex hormones such as testosterone to be given to girls as young as 8. At a Thursday panel at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, Dr. Michael Laidlaw addressed the medical harms of hormonal treatments and surgical interventions being performed on young people who believe they are the opposite sex. Doctors administering these treatments are advocating...

    There is a new addition to the pantheon of Trump hatred in the media. It is a Trump hate book for teenagers. Yes, liberal families can now gift their teenagers with a book telling them why they should hate Trump. The latest example of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Unpresidented: A Biography of Donald Trump, was reviewed by TDS victim Katy Waldman on December 19 in the New Yorker. Waldman proudly lets us know she suffers from TDS starting with the very title of her review, "A Trump Biography for Teens Is a New Lens on the President’s Totalizing Awfulness," and it goes...

  • A Fast-Food Problem: Where Have All the Teenagers Gone?

    The New York Times ^ | 03 May 2018 | RACHEL ABRAMS and ROBERT GEBELOFF
    A quarter-century ago, there were 56 teenagers in the labor force for every “limited service” restaurant — that is, the kind where you order at the counter. Today, there are fewer than half as many, which is a reflection both of teenagers’ decreasing work force participation and of the explosive growth in restaurants. But in an industry where cheap labor is an essential component in providing inexpensive food, a shortage of workers is changing the equation upon which fast-food places have long relied. This can be seen in rising wages, in a growth of incentives, and in the sometimes odd...
  • Chris Cuomo: On Cellphone Use, Treat Trump Like My Recalcitrant Teenage Daughter

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The CNN crew had a jolly old time this morning, mocking President Trump for his penchant for using his cellphone, and analogizing him to a recalcitrant teenage girl. Chris Cuomo led the charge, advising chief of staff John Kelly to say to Trump: “Look, we let you use this phone. It’s a privilege. It’s not a right. And if you don’t use it the right way, we’re going to take it from you.” Added Alisyn Camerota, “and you’re going to be grounded.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Last Saturday hundreds of thousands of high schoolers gathered across the country in a “March for Our Lives” rally. Organized and financed by anti-gun nuts and other left-wing outfits, and ornamented with Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey, the spectacle was filled with the emotional exhibitionism and juvenile policy recommendations one would expect from the most pampered and worst-educated cohort of young people in American history––the perfect shock troops for progressive propaganda. Progressivism, like its totalitarian cousins, is an ideology of melodrama and moral exhibitionism. The complexity and mystery of a flawed human nature and its actions are...

    With all the chaos going on in this country after the Parkland, Fla. massacre, and the gun control push by the Parkland children, the mainstream media, and the Russia probe, if Republicans retain control of the Senate and House in November and add governorships and state legislative seats, do you see the teenagers and liberals acting up after the election, protesting on the streets again?
  • Why We Should Lower the Voting Age to 16

    The New York Times ^ | March 2, 2018 | Laurence Steinberg
    The young people who have come forward to call for gun control in the wake of the mass shooting at their high school in Parkland, Fla., are challenging the tiresome stereotype of American kids as indolent narcissists whose brains have been addled by smartphones. They offer an inspiring example of thoughtful, eloquent protest. Unfortunately, when it comes to electing lawmakers whose decisions about gun control and other issues affect their lives, these high schoolers lack any real power. This needs to change: The federal voting age in the United States should be lowered from 18 to 16. Skeptics will no...

    While browsing Twitter last week, I suddenly noticed a barrage of tweets hailing Dana Loesch’s performance at CNN’s town hall meeting on gun control. Curious, I headed to YouTube to see it. Loesch, indeed, defended the Second Amendment with tact and poise, but what struck me most as I watched the event wasn’t her performance but the vicious behavior of the crowd. Like a mob, the audience repeatedly heckled Loesch – and Senator Marco Rubio before her – for opposing gun control of any kind. It even booed Loesch for arguing that some rape victims would have loved to have...

    Five teenagers from Michigan have been charged with second-degree murder after being accused of throwing a rock off an overpass that killed a man, according to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office. Kenneth White, 32, was a passenger in a van that was traveling along I-75 near Flint, Michigan, on the night of October 18, when a 6-pound rock smashed through the windshield of the vehicle, fatally injuring him. White was struck in the face and head, and the rock ricocheted to his chest, causing him to lose consciousness, according to Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell. The driver told police he...

    Maybe it’s because I’m so damn entertaining and knowledgeable. Maybe it’s because I provide so much love and attention. Maybe I AM Supermum. Who knows? Is there a magic mum formula, a secret to having two kids who DON’T do Facebook? Or Instagram? Or Twitter? Who aren’t self-obsessed selfie senders? Who aren’t vloggers ? They used to do some of them. USED to, mind. It’s the latest teenage trend as far as social media’s concerned.(snip) Apparently two-thirds of teens are sick of social media, with some going as far as to say they wouldn’t mind if it had never been...

    Many 18-year-olds are registered for their first semester of college classes, but very few of them are registered to vote. As adults in a democracy, young people have this great privilege and responsibility, yet very few take advantage of the opportunity. Their disregard is not the result of indifference or immaturity, but of an overwhelming amount of new responsibilities. Assembly Constitutional Amendment 10 (ACA 10) is a bipartisan constitutional amendment that would lower the voting age from 18 to 17 in California. This may seem like a minor shift, but it would be pivotal in youth turnout for elections. At...

The sexually frustrated children and teenagers stayed at the Mechraa Belksiri Hospital for one week to receive rabies vaccinations after the animal transmitted the disease to them, explained Moroccan daily Al Akhbar in its August 10 edition. The incident has put the families of these fifteen young people into distress and horror, reports the daily.
