    During a press conference hosted by the Sunshine Movement, an advocacy group that leverages youth protests to oppose global warming, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez said her Nov. 6 achievement ranks with the 1969 Moon landing and the 1964 Civil Rights Act. 'We've done what we thought was impossible,' she told a small crowd who braved 40-degree weather. 'We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That's what we did when so many of us...

    It's been a given since America began industrializing in the mid-1800s that each generation would live longer than the one that came before. Since 2014, however, an alarming reversal has taken place, with life expectancy slipping each year. How can that be? The release of the U.S. mortality data has typically been a humdrum affair, with little notice by the major media. Not now. On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their data for 2017. The average American can expect to live to 78.6 years, the CDC said, down from 78.7 years in 2016. But that small...

    On the Adolescent Fixation of the Modern West Msgr. Charles Pope • October 16, 2018 • Recently at the Synod on Youth, Archbishop Charles Chaput made the following observation:Unfortunately, many “developed” countries today are actually “underdeveloped in their humanity. They’re frozen in a kind of moral adolescence; an adolescence which they’ve chosen for themselves and now seek to impose upon others.I have written on this topic as well. What follows is largely taken from an article I first published on this blog in 2010. In it I wrote about the kind of teenage fixation that is evident in our...

    The brawl, which occurred in an Atlanta suburb, doesn't have a known root cause yetJust a week after an ugly brawl in FIBA World Cup qualifiers between the Philippines and Australia, another one broke out at an amateur game in a suburb in Atlanta. This one, however, was between players and referees, rather than players from both sides. Chicago's R.A.W. Athletics were facing the Houston Raptors on Sunday when the brawl occurred. Doug Jones shared a few videos on Twitter of the brawl, and they're certainly ugly.That clip shows the onset of the brawl, with the official being knocked to...

    Ever since their shock defeat in November 2016, Democrats have sought comfort in the age-old proverb that our kids are our future. After all, Hillary Clinton decisively won the youth vote, with 55% of millennials voting for her, while Donald Trump could not muster more than one-third. So does that mean the future is looking rosy? In the past few months, the liberal media has seen hope in Americas youth. A AP-Norc/MTV Youth Political Pulse poll found that only a minority (33%) of young Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his job of president, while the majority believe...

    More Americans now find pornography morally acceptable than ever before. Just last year, 36% were okay with porn; today it is 43%. As expected, young unmarried men are the most approving of porn (as we know, they are also its biggest consumers). Among the unmarried, 50% find pornography morally acceptable, as compared to 35% of married men and women. By a margin of 53% to 32%, men go for porn more than women. Moreover, two of every three males (67%) aged 18-49 approve of it (this is a 14% jump in one year!). Religion, or the absence thereof, also plays...

    HORSHAM, Pa. (CBS) A youth sports volunteer in Montgomery County is accused of sexting over social media with a young boy he met while refereeing a basketball game. Officials say 21-year-old Kevin Barron, of Horsham, reached out to a 12-year-old boy following a basketball game he refereed on Dec. 17 that the alleged victim was part of. The Montgomery County District Attorneys Office says Barron, who is an elementary education major at Campbell University in North Carolina and a student teacher, started having conversations with the boy about basketball and his performance, but then they started turning sexual in...

    This is the key to understanding youth politics. Young people cannot be truly selfish, because they cannot be permanently young. Youth is temporary, its gains are passed on. In the late 19th century, young people built institutions that helped protect 20th-century young people. The high school seniors marching over the weekend will hopefully make their schools safer well after they have graduated. If anyone should be choosing the issues in politics, it should be the young, for they have a longer future to provide for.

    Do our youth really understand their countrys military? By Lt. Col. Brian Fleming When in uniform and far away from a military post, I am often greeted by strangers and thanked for my service. They have paid for my meals and treated me to coffee. I truly appreciate the recognition of service to our country and the value placed on being a veteran. However, I believe most do not fully understand what that service really means. The volunteer in our all-volunteer force is what makes the military successful. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I meet young people in...

    The media is simply with us nowadays; every major paper on both sides of the Atlantic seems fixated on students. Whether its our safe spaces, our stamping out of free speech, our crazed protests, or our trigger warnings that threaten to turn the nations next generation of leaders into snowflakes campus life is always in the news. Whats going on? It seems student politics represents one of the sides in the culture wars raging in both America and the UK. Both Brexit and the election of Donald Trump empowered previously dormant fringes of the right-wing. It seemed that candidates...

    Some 80 years ago, the American government produced a pamphlet encouraging people into work. It explained that being idle was just about the worst thing imaginable because it meant the loss of self-respect, pride and hope. By contrast, it went on: 'Let's look at what work does for us. Work keeps us from going nuts.' I sometimes wonder what would happen if our Government distributed such a pamphlet today. How long would it take for people to demand an apology? How long before the first online petition passed 10,000 signatures? For one thing, there is that incendiary world 'nuts', which...

    Michelle Obama was outspoken about what todays young generation is learning from President Donald Trump and how they wont tolerate certain values he represents. The former first lady appeared at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday to discuss a mix of topics, many of which had to do with the current presidency and how its impacting the nations next generation. CNN recapped many of Michelle Obamas statements when it came to addressing the differences between her husbands administration and Trumps. Adhering to her signature rule of not uttering Trumps name when attacking his leadership, she managed to get her...
