Weekend Reads: Some Cereal Flavors Should Never Happen

This article highlights social media as a source of “iGen” mental health crisis problems. I say it is merely the tool by which worse influences are contributing to their new angst.

They have grown up in a society that had adopted ‘knee-jerk-reaction’ as a perfectly fine way of dealing with life. Critical thinking has pretty much been banned, and versions of it deemed ‘racist/phobic/etc’.

They’ve been conditioned to personalize every damn thing. Whenever something happens they run to see what their favorite celebrities are saying about it (on social media, yes) and the screwed-up propagandist MSM and then act/think according to what those entities think/say. These ‘youth’ are unable to think for themselves, apparently. I mean, look at what a lot of them sign on for (and go into student loan debt for) in college.

Ridiculous vague and made up courses based in nothing but trying to persuade what and how you think about whatever. They need to think for themselves. Get off your electronic devices and live for the day. How about a college course in ‘thinking for yourself’? They base nothing they think or believe in anything weighted with ALL the facts/info so that they can come to their own conclusions. When you’re like that it’s far more easy to be controlled and led by anything, especially somebody else’s views/opinions.

For example…
Keep in mind when Trump won in 2016 the first thing we heard was the liberals promoting disappointed/devastated Hillary voters were now seeking mental health help via doctors and antidepressants to cope with the political loss. *face-palm* I’ll be the first to admit I cringed and growled through Obama’s 8 years, but I got on with a productive life, controlled my own thoughts and did it without help from a psychiatrist or mood/depression/anxiety meds. But in today’s toxic political and ideological climate they are told they need to be outraged and resist and by any means necessary. They are told to disrupt, get in their faces, and silence opposing views, not to listen to and then intellectually debate, because anyone not thinking or viewing the way they do “are not welcome here” (Maxine Waters) They are told to lead with their feelings, and to gauge everything on the basis of how it makes them feel. This is extremely irrational. And so, when their ‘feelings-invested’ 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost the election they were told it had been stolen. No facts. No proof. The age group the author is discussing is also being given insane mixed messages on sex, sexual orientation, gender orientation(s), what is ‘shared cultures’ and what is ‘cultural appropriation’, and that the world is going to basically end because of ‘climate change’. Calling things ‘racist’ that have nothing to do with race. Blaming everything on “white male patriarchy/privilege” while casting off your own individual personal responsibility, logic and reasoning based in facts, not emotion … especially hate.

This is a generation of self-made victims. You simply cannot deal with life if all you have to go on is your feelings. Period.

The Conversation: The mental health crisis among America’s youth is real – and staggering

From 2009 to 2017, major depression among 20- to 21-year-olds more than doubled, rising from 7 percent to 15 percent. Depression surged 69 percent among 16- to 17-year-olds. Serious psychological distress, which includes feelings of anxiety and hopelessness, jumped 71 percent among 18- to 25-year-olds from 2008 to 2017. Twice as many 22- to 23-year-olds attempted suicide in 2017 compared with 2008, and 55 percent more had suicidal thoughts. The increases were more pronounced among girls and young women. By 2017, one out of five 12- to 17-year-old girls had experienced major depression in the previous year.

Is it possible that young people simply became more willing to admit to mental health problems? My co-authors and I tried to address this possibility by analyzing data on actual suicide rates collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Suicide is a behavior, so changes in suicide rates can’t be caused by more willingness to admit to issues.

Tragically, suicide also jumped during the period. For example, the suicide rate among 18- to 19-year-olds climbed 56 percent from 2008 to 2017. Other behaviors related to depression have also increased, including emergency department admissions for self-harm, such as cutting, as well as hospital admissions for suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.

The large increases in mental health issues in the National Survey on Drug Use and Health appeared almost exclusively among teens and young adults, with less change among Americans ages 26 and over. Even after statistically controlling for the influences of age and year, we found that depression, distress and suicidal thoughts were much higher among those born in the mid- to late-1990s, the generation I call iGen.

Given the current “Varsity Blues” scandal let me repeat: Not everyone should go to college! I have left cringing whenever I hear ‘everyone who wants to go to college should be able to … and it should be free’ from democrat candidate, to shouting back at the TV my repeated statement. We need people trained in skills they have a knack for … carpenters, plumbers, electricians, mechanics, bakers, cooks, fast-food managers who have worked their way up from the order counter, pet groomers. It is endless…

PM: The State of American Trade Schools – Trade and technical schools are being praised and promoted by the Department of Education, corporate America, and industry associations. How well is the system working?

This is a golden time for postsecondary trade and tech schools. Not just because they’re becoming more profitable than ever. But because, at least according to some, they’re finally shaking off the stigma that has dogged their students, instructors, and administrators for so long. Over the past year, media from The Wall Street Journal to PBS have hailed technology schools and programs as harbingers of a new economy and reformers of a postsecondary education system that’s become over-priced, over-valued, and often irrelevant.

Statistics are a big part of the story. Between 1988 and 2018, the cost of a four-year college degree increased by 213 percent at public schools and 129 percent at private schools. Over the same period, wages for most Americans remained stagnant. Meanwhile, unemployment rates among young college graduates have grown from 4.3 percent in 2000 to 5.6 percent in 2017. Young male college graduates have been particularly hard hit. Their unemployment rate spiked from 4.1 percent in 2000 to 7.1 percent in 2017. At the same time, a scarcity of skilled workers has led to a nationwide labor shortage that’s resulted in increased wages for a number of blue-collar occupations. The lesson for many is obvious.

Thank goodness…

Science Alert: That Death Metal Lover in Your Office Isn’t Desensitised to Violence, Study Shows

According to new research by psychologists from Macquarie University in Australia, death metal isn’t a demonic influence – even if its themes are concerned with little else.

In an experiment with 80 people, the researchers wanted to investigate whether death metal and heavy metal fans would be desensitised to the violent subject matter of the music they listen to – a common concern about violence in other forms of pop culture, such as video games and cinema.

“It is suggested that long-term exposure to violent media may decrease sensitivity to depictions of violence,” the team explains in a new paper.
“However, it is unknown whether persistent exposure to music with violent themes affects implicit violent imagery processing.”

To investigate, the researchers used a technique called binocular rivalry, which tests for perceptual dominance when two different images are shown to a viewer at the same time, each one being displayed to a different eye.

[…]

In the study, the team recruited 32 fans of death metal and heavy metal, along with 48 non-fans, and tested them with a binocular rivalry experiment, which showed them violent and neutral images simultaneously while they listened to music…

Tower of Babel is Eating Children

Tomorrow the indentured ‘climate change’ child servants are striking because the adults are not buying all the socialist/communist/fascist shit the climate change cult is selling. So, they must now terrify and use the children to make their displays of ass-holiness in public.

Guardian: ‘We won’t stop striking’: the New York 13 year-old taking a stand over climate change – Alexandria Villasenor is among the American student activists joining the global fray and helping to organize the first nationwide strike on 15 March

DC: Inside The Online Community Facilitating The Gender Transitions Of 5-Year-Olds

Yes, there are actually parents who are dumbfounded and confused when their five-year-old children don’t take to wearing fake penises, or tucking their real ones.

A watchdog group called 4thWaveNow is raising awareness online about “the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of ‘transgender children.’” This week, the group released screenshots from a private Facebook group called Parents of Transgender Children, which expose multiple conversations surrounding the practices of “packing“ and “tucking“ for supposedly transgender children as young as five years old.

Some conversations involve parents expressing confusion at their child’s lack of interest in prosthetic penises.

“My kid doesn’t seem that miffed about not having a penis, which frankly throws me off a bit,” one reads.

Others simply ask for recommendations for the best “age appropriate” fake penises for their young children, as well as for “stand-to-pee” (STP) devices.

“The peeing upright is more important than the bulge for my [six]-year-old,” reads another.

Jesus Christ Almighty, save us!

Enter The Sandmann and His Lawyer…

Nancy Pelosi/democrats/liberals/MSM pushing for lowering the voting age to 16yrs old…

“Capture”?? How/Where, Nancy? In cages?

I’m pretty sure the MAGA wearing Covington Catholic kids who were defamed and demonized would love to go along with that. If the left in this country thinks all the kids in high school are ‘progressive’/socialist pea-brains, think again.
I would wager it’s probably pretty much a 50-50 political divide with them as well.
Anyhow, I hope Sandmann’s lawsuits prevail as harshly as they can. This Orwellian media bullshit has gone on long enough.

Shit’s Getting Real and Hitting The Fan – UPDATED

It sure does seem like the Mueller investigation is nearing a close (finally), and the worst of the worst he hired to run things is resigning…

Dan Bongino: Mueller’s “Pit Bull” Andrew Weissmann Stepping Down

Andrew C. McCarthy: Manafort’s Light Sentence in Washington Owes to How Mueller Charged Him

Andrew McCarthy: NY’s political prosecution of Manafort should scare us all

Rush Limbaugh: Mudd to Manafort: You’ll Never Enter a Greenroom in This Town Again!

RUSH: You want to hear great definition of what it is to be in the swamp? Grab audio sound bite number 1. Phil Mudd, a former deep state CIA counterterror — well, he’s still deep state. He’s still an administrative state guy, just working over there at CNN. He used to be in the CIA, hates Trump, despises all of us who support Trump, and he was on CNN last night with Jake Tapper. And he was talking about Paul Manafort and what Manafort being sent to prison really means, what the real punishment for Manafort really is in Washington, D.C.

MUDD: There’s a legal sentence and there’s a sentence of shame. Any time he walks into a greenroom which we have here at CNN for the next 20 years, whenever he gets out, he cannot look at a single member of the press corps, a single politician without shame. He can’t walk out of a room again, regardless of whether he gets out of a jail without shame, people in this town are gonna dishonor him.

RUSH: So the absolute worst thing that happened to Manafort is that he can never walk into a cable news network greenroom again with honor. That’s their world, dude! That’s their world, Snerdley! The worst thing that ever happened to Manafort, he can never hold his head up in a greenroom again! Golly gee! If you want to get an idea of the very closed world in which these people acknowledge that they live — and, by the way, I disagree. I don’t think there is any shame anymore. It’s one of the problems with our culture and society. There isn’t any shame!

Feh.

Tyler O’Neil: Bombshell: Strzok Told Congress Robert Mueller Never Asked Him About Anti-Trump Texts

BYRON YORK: With Mueller office emptying, dramatic predictions remain unfulfilled

Last week John Brennan, the former CIA director turned Trump-bashing talking head, predicted a final flurry of indictments from Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller. The big day, Brennan said, would be Friday, March 8.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if for example this week on Friday, not knowing anything about it, but Friday is the day the grand jury indictments come down and also this Friday is better than next Friday because next Friday is the 15th of March, which is the Ides of March,” Brennan told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. “And I don’t think Robert Mueller will want to have that dramatic flair of the Ides of March when he is going to be delivering what I think are going to be are his indictments, the final indictments as well the report.”

[March 8] came and went without new Mueller indictments, or at least new public indictments. And now comes news that Mueller’s top deputy, Andrew Weissmann — also known as the special counsel’s “legal pit bull” — will leave the office within the next few days.

Also, the FBI recently announced that Mueller’s top investigator, David Archey, has left Mueller to take a top job with the bureau in Richmond, Virginia.

The departure of not one but two of Mueller’s key staff — along with other aides who have moved on in recent weeks — fueled speculation that the special counsel is wrapping up his investigation. “[Weissmann’s] departure is the strongest sign yet that Mueller and his team have all but concluded their work,” said NPR, which first reported the news.

As always, it is dangerous to predict what Mueller will or will not do, but what are the chances that Mueller’s key people are leaving while he is preparing big, new prosecutions?
