The Silent Generation (which was my parents generation) was a pretty good generation. They grew up mostly in the 50s. They were mostly the parents of Generation X, Generation X are mostly parents of Generation Z.
Baby Boomers were the hippies, not Generation X, and they are the ones in power, not Generation X.
I agree that the Baby Boomers are responsible for much of the problems today.
Baby Boomers are mostly the parents of Millenials (Generation Y), which is why the Millenials are mostly screwed up – they are the product of hippies having kids, and they act like it.
The only way Generation X raised the Millenials is if they had children before the age of 10, so you’re completely off on this.
I’ve met some great Baby Boomers, but many were just a bunch of drug-filled radicals. They gave birth to the Millenials, and I’ve known a lot of great Millenials, but as a generation in general they are a failure.

I have to agree that there will be an economic meltdown, but my belief is there won’t be another president. We may have an election, but I think everything will fall apart before anyone else has a chance to get into office.
The economic meltdown won’t be like 2008, but will be a total devastation. The great depression will look like a Sunday picnic. I think this will lead to rioting, looting, and eventual starvation in many big cities. Look at what happens when EBT cards don’t work for one day. What will happen when the dollar is worthless? I think Chicago is where the spark will turn into a raging fire that will spread across the land.
I think the government is anticipating this and they are ready to clamp down. Look at what they are doing. They know there is no way out of this economic mess. Wait until the rioting and subsequent martial law turns into another civil war. Once that happens, I think Russia and China will pounce. They will attack us when we are weak and kick us when we are down.
I’m scared for the next couple years. I think the liberals will succeed in the total devastation of the U.S.
One day I feel that the true patriots will be able to save this country from the brink of death, and reestablish the Constitution and its principals. It will once again mean something. The American flag will fly once again and it too will mean something.
We will learn our lesson: never let liberalism/communism/socialism take hold. Not even a little bit.

Just make things up like a liberal troll.
If you look at this map: http://chartsbin.com/view/1403 Utah is one of the LOWEST users of food stamps in the U.S. It goes along with what the religion teaches. Mormons are taught to avoid government welfare at all costs. It is a pernicious addiction that will rot one’s soul. The Mormon church has its own welfare system that is 1000X better than any government, where members are required to work to receive assistance. They are also enrolled in church job training, and job placement programs.
Mormon’s preach self-reliance, living within one’s means, staying out of debt, growing gardens, storing food, learning to make things from scratch. Any doomsday prepper will tell you that Mormon’s are the most prepared and self-reliant people around. The joke is that if the SHTF then go raid the Mormons.
Even though Utah has one of the lowest uses of food stamps as a state, I guarantee that most that do use food stamps are the liberal Californication transplants that migrate from state to state destroying everything in their path like locusts. Look at what they did to the once great state of Colorado.
Liberalism is destructive. It destroys an individual. It destroys families. It destroys towns and cities. It destroys states. It destroys nations. Liberalism destroys everything it touches, and only brings sorrow, debt, bondage, laziness, anger and hate to all that it touches.
You, brewskis, are a Christian-hating liberal.

Chronic, someone just beat the living **** out of you with a stupid stick! If you’re next gen, then you’re not doing them any favors. Just reinforces the stereotype that the millenials are a bunch of unemployable morons. All other generations are looking at you folks and are wondering where we failed.

New Mexico……..You Suck!
Pencils? Freakin’ Pencils?
The kids in New Mexico must really hate all of you.
From an ex NM resident......Pencils? Most of the people can't write! The real candy in NM is METH!

I agree. As much as I love The Blaze, this website has become toxic. I’ve never seen a site that crashes my web browser (and I’ve tried a number of them), like The Blaze does. It constantly crashes Flash, and it affects all of my tabs. It has the potential to bring down my entire browser – I’ve never seen a site do things like that. They need new programmers, and need to get rid of all of their crap!
Sometimes I get so tired of The Blaze killing by browser, crashing everything, and bogging down my operating system, that I have to go away and avoid it for a while. Seriously, you guys need to get things in order!
I won’t even try to go to The Blaze on a mobile browser on my phone or tablet. It’s almost impossible to navigate with all the crap that occurs.
Get new programmers. Fix your site. I would love to not categorize The Blaze as a toxic website that does harm, but unfortunately at the point in time I do.
They’re just a husband a wife team of left-leaning liberals that twist and slant the truth to the liberal view as much as they can. They cannot be trusted at all to report the truth. It’s just liberal spin.
Snopes is actually pretty accurate and have been around for well over a decade. They aren't hacks regardless of their ill advised supposed political leanings.
If they were conservatives you'd throw open your arms and greet their news with a great big hug though, wouldn't you? But oh, they lean left? Oh, they must be lying about everything.
Man, there's so much more to the world than partisan bullshit like this. Open your mind for a second once in a while.

That was so easy, that it was a joke. Got 50/50 with only 1% of my brain. Common Core and the dumbing down of education on display. Sad thing, most kids now days would fail that pathetic quiz.

I was thinking the same thing after watching the Sunday morning news shows today. The Left kept throwing out that word over and over and over again. They were saying the same thing on every news show, like it was a coordinated effort. I know their devious tactics and how the left likes to use loaded buzzwords and repeat them constantly.
The immigration system isn’t “broken”, and we don’t need “comprehensive reform” (another loaded buzzword that is repeated constantly, which actually means blanket amnesty). Lack of enforcement of the laws is the issue. The only thing I would change is to amend the constitution to require that at least one parent has to be a U.S. citizen in order for a child to receive citizenship. That is what every single other country in the world does. The U.S.A. is the only country in the world that has birthright citizenship. Change that, and you get rid of the anchor baby problem.

Ha Ha! Those are little girl weights. My 9-year old girl lifts heavier weights than that! Man, he really is a sissy. Do breathe on him, he might fall over! What a wuss!

Liberals, please don’t come here to Utah. We don’t need you to ruin everything like you’ve done elsewhere.
These are teachers from Utah, probably the most conservative state in the nation. Most are conservative and religious. They probably have their own guns as well.

Why was there a need for the flood? Why would God use the flood to destroy the wicked men, and not some other method?
One way to look at it is that the Earth, like man has a certain path and destiny. Man must follow God, entering into the waters of baptism. Man is baptized by water, to wash away his sins and becomes renewed as a follower of Christ. Man is also baptized by fire (receiving the Holy Ghost) and becomes sanctified.
Why would God flood the earth? I think of it as the baptism of the Earth, where wickedness and sin are washed away, and the Earth is renewed. One day when Jesus Christ returns, the Earth will be baptized by fire and will become sanctified and holy.
I see it as the Earth following the path of man, being baptized of water and fire, to fulfill the measure of its creation.

I have a boy with autism, and when he was younger he used to love the garbage trucks. He would always get excited when the garbage man came and would yell, “garbage truck! garbage truck!” He always wanted me to draw him pictures of garbage trucks.
Seeing this video touches me in a different way. It brings back memories.

Like someone posted below:
The 45 Declared Goals of the Communist Takeover of America:
#17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
#18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
#20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
#21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
The liberals that move in go straight for media, education, and government jobs (positions of bureaucracy). Actually, most liberals can ONLY get government jobs. They can’t get hired elsewhere.

Utah, like many other conservative states, has it’s share of liberals moving in who cause all sorts of problems. Utah has had a good economy which has been a draw to liberals, mostly from Californica. Many western states absolutely HATE California, and wish they’d stay where they are. Colorado, which was once a great state is now turned into a craphole – a California East.
Believe me, we fight these parasites and destroyers of all that is good. Usually when they enter a state they immediately head straight to such areas as media, education and government so that they can continue their subversive activities.
It sucks, they are doing the same thing to several traditionally red states. Florida, North Carolina, Nevada, Arizona, et al. Libs destroy the states that they live in and like locusts move on to the next state. Instead of adapting to the good policies that have made those states thrive, they vote for people who implement the same destructive policies they just fled from. It's inane.

Fake! fake! Fake! That is not how a possessed person looks. That is not how a possessed person talks. That is not how a possessed person acts.
Is there such a thing as possession by an evil spirit. Yes. Just as we read in the bible. Is it something I would want to talk about. No. In reality it is a very scary thing. Nothing to mess around with.
Yeah I think either "David" is pranking Bob Larson or they're working an exorcist scam together.

Sadly, I think that this can actually happen. This is a VERY REAL possibility. Obama may declare war on Utah (in a symbolic sense), and Utah may resist the federal government. it could get ugly. I wouldn’t be surprised if the actual scenario played out in the future.

The State legislature voted against gay marriage. The people of Utah also voted against gay marriage. Banning gay marriage was also put into the Utah constitution. Like California, a liberal, activist judge that was appointed by Obama in 2012 overruled the will of the legislature of Utah, the will of the people of Utah, and the constitution of Utah. It’s an Obama appointed activist judge sticking his thumb in the eye of Utah. What scares me is how the Democrats in the Senate changed the rules for the filibuster under Harry Reid. The reason they did it was to push through Obama’s judicial nominees without any hindrance. Other states, besides Utah, will face the wrath of of the Obama administration, while the courts are filled with liberal, activist judges imposing Obama’s will on the people of this country. Tyranny at it’s finest.
No greater threat exists to your life, liberty, or prosperity than the Federal Government of the United States.
What solves all of this is to eliminate marriage from any and all legal codes. Let the guy down the street claim he is married to his fridge if he wants. Simplify the tax code, return marriage to the church and religious institutions, stick with contracts about co-mingling of assets. Then you are under no obligation to accept the marriage of the weirdo down the street to his fridge. He's just the crazy guy down the street and you can avoid him without the threat of the government telling you that you have to accept and associate with him.
I think that's called the fundamental transformation of America because everything he's doing is to ensure his Marxist policies survive long after he's gone.
