    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...
  • Democrats are losing the millennial vote and need to change message

    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 America’s 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 Attorney’s 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 country’s 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 it’s our safe spaces, our stamping out of free speech, our crazed protests, or our trigger warnings that threaten to turn the nation’s next generation of leaders into snowflakes – campus life is always in the news. What’s 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...

    Jonathan’s father always told him he would never amount to anything other than a drug dealer. He entered the foster care system when he was 12. At 18, he was in college, but had to drop out to take care of his ill grandmother. “I always told myself I would graduate college and wouldn’t be a statistic in the foster care system,” said Jonathan, 26, who gave only his first name to protect his privacy. But at 21, he was homeless and jobless. “One day I Googled ‘help with foster kids aging out,’” Jonathan said, and he found Youth Villages,...

    Michelle Obama was outspoken about what today’s young generation is learning from President Donald Trump and how they won’t “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 it’s impacting the nation’s next generation. CNN recapped many of Michelle Obama’s statements when it came to addressing the differences between her husband’s administration and Trump’s. Adhering to her signature rule of not uttering Trump’s name when attacking his leadership, she managed to get her...

    Americans continue to get fatter and it’s delivering a huge blow to the country, both in higher health care costs and undercutting military recruiting, according to a huge new study. The 14th annual State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America report from the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation bluntly reported that 70 percent of the nation is obese or overweight. And while the rate of obesity growth is leveling off, the costs aren’t. The report, for example, said additional health care for obese adults and children is $150 billion a year and billions...

    A rising number of young Chinese people are failing fitness tests required to join the army because they are too fat and masturbate too much, state media has proclaimed. The high rejection rate has triggered concerns that there are not enough youths in good physical condition to fill the ranks of the Chinese army. A poor diet and frequent masturbation, leading to abnormally large testicular veins, are believed to be behind falling fitness levels, according to a report published in state-run military newspaper the People’s Liberation Army Daily.

    The 9-year-old boy whose letter to President Trump was read during a press briefing last week has plans to tour the White House — after the President accepted his handwritten friend request. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the letter from Dylan Harbin last week, kicking off a new White House tradition of reading mail from “some of the forgotten men, women and children that we are here to serve and that the President is fighting for.” Appearing on Fox and Friends, Dylan’s mother, SuAnn Harbin, said the pair will “definitely” take the White House up on its...

    It's his "Free Bird." The American Legion boys erupted in ecstatic cheers when President Donald Trump couldn't resist taking a dig at the "fake news" press while taking a photograph with them. Trump addressed the American Legion Boys Nation and Auxiliary Girls Nation on Wednesday at the White House, taking a more hopeful and inspirational tone than in his politically loaded speech to the Boy Scouts this week. Before his speech, he posted for pictures with the both groups. After the picture with the boys, Trump said he'd be returning shortly to make his televised remarks. "We'll say a few...

    ERIE, PA — Max Bloomstine has a positive view of the nation’s growing diversity, believes the American dream is attainable (but doesn’t believe he’s entitled to it) and is more into the “we” instead of the “me.” He is politically independent but leans conservative, attends church on a regular basis, and views his parents — not sports figures or celebrities — as role models. Right now, though, two things weigh heavily on his mind: where to attend college next year (It’s either going to be the University of Pittsburgh or Rochester) and working on a summer job. “I am a...
