  • About half of millennial Christians think it's wrong to evangelize, Barna Survey finds

    New research from Barna reveals that a about half of millennial Christians believe it's "wrong" to evangelize. The new report, "Reviving Evangelism," commissioned by Alpha USA, examines the experiences of persons who share their faith and their attitudes toward evangelizing. Nearly every practicing Christian believes that part of their faith is being a witness about Jesus and that the best thing that could occur for someone is to receive Christ, survey results in the study show. Millennial Christians, those born between 1984 and 1998, say they feel equipped to share their faith with other people with nearly three quarters responding...
  • Fyre Festival: A Classic American Con: What this epic beach party disaster says about social [tr]

    American Conservative ^ | January 28, 2019 | Chris R. Morgan
    Arguably the most notorious moment of the Fyre Festival, apart from the ill-fated event itself, took place during a planning meeting in March 2017, a month before the April 27 launch. That was when the organizers learned how unprepared they were to put it on. There were no vendors, no stages had been rented, performers had not been paid, no transportation arrangements had been made, there was not enough space for the accommodations (which had not been set up), and to meet even the lowest possible expectations would cost $50 million. The sound advice was to cancel and plan immediately...
  • New poll shows millennials will change position on Roe when given the facts

    Pro-choice advocates consistently forward the narrative that the majority of the American public does not want to overturn Roe v. Wade. And to some degree, surveys and polls agree. For example, a 2018 poll reported in Vox found that 67-percent of Americans would not like to see Roe overturned, and only 29-percent would. However, a survey released Monday shows that support for Roe v. Wade is based largely on ignorance. When educated about the realities of abortion, opposition to the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion rises sharply. The survey conducted by Students for Life of America’s Institute for Pro-Life...
  • Resolved: To Speak English

    "Why can't the English teach their children how to speak?" asked Professor Henry Higgins in the musical "My Fair Lady." It's a good question for Americans, especially millennials. On a recent flight two young women sat behind me, chattering away rather loudly. In just one minute I counted 16 "likes" and "you knows" from just one of them. It went this way: "And then she was like and then he was like and I was like, you know." As an adverb, "like" means nearly, closely or approximately, as in "the experience was like jumping off a high diving board." There...

    I read yesterday that Big Tuna is blaming millennials for a downturn in canned tuna sales (The Trouble With Tuna: ‘A Lot of Millennials Don’t Even Own Can Openers’).Now I’ve found fault with millennials in the past for all sorts of things - mostly related to their willful lack of critical thinking skills and their mindless adoption of looney leftist dogma that they’ve been spoon fed and indoctrinated in since inception – but even I am unwilling to blame them for the demise of canned tuna. If it’s true that millennials don’t own can openers we could be dealing with...
  • Democrats defeated their greatest argument about Trump with their rush to upend civic norms

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 05, 2018 09:34 PM | Tiana Lowe
    Prior to the 2016 election, critics raised a genuine question that fueled much of the Right's concern about Donald Trump: With zero political experience and a capricious nature, would Trump's whims and most unhampered flaws threaten the civic norms that make our republic function? Between his goading that he would pay the legal fees of his supporters if they "knock the crap" out of political dissidents and his flagrant hatred of the political press, Trump gave legitimate cause for concern that he would abuse his executive power to the worst possible excesses. But for the most part, he didn't. Trump...
  • "Where have all the Millennial men gone"

    Where have millennial men gone? Updated 20 hours ago Millennial males have been dropping out of the U.S. workforce faster than any other age and gender demographic. Half a million more men aged 25 to 34 would be working now if, like women and some other groups, their participation had returned to pre-crisis levels or better, Bureau of Labor statistics show. Reasons include increased rates of school and training, as well as disability and illness. Other factors feeding into the phenomenon: *Fewer high-paying manufacturing and mining jobs *More young adults living at home *Better video games *Increased opioid use

    Carl Jensen experienced what he calls “the awakening” sometime around 2012. He was a software engineer in a suburb of Denver, writing code for a medical device. The job was high-pressure: He had to document every step for the Food and Drug Administration, and a coding error could lead to harm or death for patients. Mr. Jensen was making about $110,000 a year and had benefits, but the stress hardly seemed worth it. He couldn’t unwind with his family after work; he spent days huddled over the toilet. He lost 10 pounds. After one especially brutal workday, Mr. Jensen Googled...

  • 3 Reasons Why So Many Millennials Love Socialism

    It’s true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it’s true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there’s no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why?According to the Daily Caller, “Young people view socialism as more attractive than older people. Of people ages 18-29, 55 percent considered socialism favorably compared to other age groups, according to a 2016 Gallup poll. Only 37 percent of people between the ages 30 and 49 viewed socialism as positive. Twenty-seven percent of people between 50 and 64 years old thought of...

    How much does the rumored “blue wave” rely on the youth vote? This is of particular concern for Democrats when it comes to the 18-29 demographic which regularly leans toward the progressive side these days. If a recent poll from the Public Religion Research Institute and the Atlantic is any indication, there’s plenty to worry about. (I actually picked this up from a Vox article, but the poll seems legitimate.) While the youngest voters seem to be quite vocal out on the protest beat, fewer than a third of them are sure that they’ll actually show up on election...
  • Why Do Young People Care So Much about Income Inequality?

    It’s the wrong thing to be worried about. When Bernie Sanders came to the University of Massachusetts Amherst during his campaign for president, thousands of my fellow students turned out to hear him speak. With his many campus visits, the socialist senator certainly left an impression — roughly 2 million young people voted for him in 2016. Thanks to people like Sanders, the idea that income inequality is the “defining issue of our time” has been burned into the collective consciousness of my generation, so much so that a GenForward survey found that economic inequality was one of the highest...

    It's hard to draw any hard conclusions from a new survey from that paints millennials – America's largest demographic, often dismissed by older folks as the Entitled Generation – as the "worst tippers in the U.S." According to the survey, a weighted study of 1,000 interviews, 10 percent of millennials routinely stiff their servers at restaurants. Compare that figure with the percentage of Gen Xers and baby boomers who admitted stiffing the wait staff: 1.8 percent and 4.4 percent, respectively. The highest percentage of baby boomers (6.1 percent) who stiffed servers was found in the 64-72 age group, some...

    In case you needed another reason to feel far older than you actually are, a new survey by music streaming platform Deezer, via NME, suggests that by the time you hit 30, you reach something called “musical paralysis.” That means 30-year-olds have hit the threshold when they no longer seek out new music, or are open to listening to something new and beyond their established taste.... Survey participants gave various reasons for just why they’ve checked out of the music scene, mostly citing having children and too demanding a job to keep up with what’s new. A considerable 65 per...

    Millennials expect to make it big some day, with more than half reporting that they believe they will eventually become millionaires, according to a new study. Despite having crushing student loans (20 percent never expect to pay them off), credit card and other debt, people born between 1982 and 2000 share a confidence when it comes to their financial outlook. 'Young people are optimistic about the future,' said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist for TD Ameritrade, in a statement on the company's new report. 'On average, survey respondents expect to land a job in their chosen field and be completely financially...

Known by many names – “crusty punks,” “crusties,” “gutter punks,” “crumb bums” and “dirty kids,” to list but a few – this group of young adults has rejected a more traditional 9-to-5 lifestyle in favor of train hopping, panhandling and voluntary homelessness.

    Do Americans under 30 really hate guns? Earlier this year, victims of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting engaged in class walkouts to protest the supposed “easy access” to guns after a disturbed gunman’s six-minute murder spree. They were openly embraced by gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians, prominently featured and promoted by the media, and lauded as the “fierce voice” of the next generation that would “finally act” on gun control and maybe even turn elections. What followed was the sort of inconsistency one might expect from turning control of a public policy debate over to minors. The junior advocates...
  • America's LGBT Population Rises to 4.5 Percent, Mostly Among Millennials

    In the United States, the percentage of adults identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender has increased to 4.5 percent, according to a year-long survey, which also shows that the biggest increase has been among millennials. Gallup's daily tracking in 2017 has found that more than 11 million adults now identify as LGBT in the country, which is 4.5 percent of the population — up from 4.1 percent in 2016 and 3.5 percent in 2012. The increase is driven primarily by the millennials, meaning those born between 1980 and 1999, as those from this group who identify as LGBT rose...

    A frustrated couple are taking their own 30-year-old son to court today after trying and failing to get him to fly the coop. Mark and Christina Rotondo, of Camillus, New York, say their son doesn't pay rent or help out around the house so they've had it. Over the past three months, they've given him five written notices to move out, but he has ignored their orders. They initially tried to get him evicted, but learned that since he is a family member, he would have to be removed from their home through an ejectment proceeding.
