Super Bowl 50 ad: 'Bud Light Party'
Things got a little political, well sort of, from Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen for Super Bowl 50. In light of the divide from Americans when it comes to politics, the two comedians declared they were forming their own political party, the “Bud Light Party.” The ad also featured actors Michael Peña, asking a crowded […]
Jesse Watters talks with Sanders fans
In the spirit of Bernie Sanders having “captured the imagination of some younger Americans,” Bill O’Reilly sent out Jesse Watters to talk to some of those younger Americans, at the University of Oregon, “to explore the Sanders phenomenon.” As is usually the case with Watters World segments for The O’Reilly Factor, the responses are both cringe worthy and hilarious.

'Lenny Letter' dismisses GOP women
While I consistently find myself stuck in an inner battle of liking HBO’s Girls and disliking its lead actress and writer, Lena Dunham, I nonetheless signed up for her “feminist newsletter,” Lenny Letter. I don’t disagree with Dunham on every single political issue, but I do on most and find her comments about the Republican […]
Matt Damon praises Gen-Y over Gen-X
Young fans of hearthrob Matt Damon may have even more of a reason to like him now. As GQ mentioned about the talk they had with the actor, he’s got “an unpopular opinion” in that “Damon Prefers Millennials to Generation X,” his own generation. Damon believes “this generation seems so much more dialed-in than mine,” […]
No safe space: Lena Dunham quits Twitter
On Tuesday afternoon, Lena Dunham discussed her decision to (once again) quit Twitter. God only knows how long the Internet will be free from her pro-Hillary Clinton, pro-Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion, and anti-Republican tirades. But, this time, she may actually be off for good. That’s because, as Breitbart reported, such a discussion occurred Tuesday at a […]

Women would 'rather go to hell' than vote Hillary
Hillary Clinton supporters Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem recently called out young women not supporting Hillary. And, these young women are reacting. Not surprisingly, these women are not jumping to support a candidate whose surrogates told them that “there’s a special place in hell” for them — or that they only support Bernie Sanders to ‘meet boys.’ In Esquire, Britt […]
Libertarians for ... Bernie Sanders?
With the exit of Rand Paul from the presidential race, the libertarian vote has began shopping for a mainstream candidate. To that end, Ted Cruz has vied for their attention, though Ron Paul has warned against trusting him. Cruz, nor Republicans, are the natural party for libertarians. A surprising twist might pull them toward Bernie […]
Hillary's Gen-Y failure could be a GOP opportunity
Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton among young voters 85 percent to 8 percent, according to multiple recent New Hampshire polls. Clinton’s anemic support among millennials could be a good sign for Republicans.

Bill thankful for all 'millennial young people'
About 30 years ago, former President Bill Clinton emerged as the young, cool candidate who speaks to young people in the way they can understand. Oh my, how times have changed — at a rally in New Hampshire on Monday, he wasn’t even speaking in the correct vernacular. “”I am so grateful for all the […]
America has socialism: the old feast on the young
Youth in revolt might look toward Bernie Sanders and a socialist hope, but the anger should be directed at older Americans, not capitalism. Students have been enraged by bad cafeteria food, free speech that ignores their calls for sensitivity and trigger warnings, and a lack of funding for their favored projects. Intergenerational wealth transfers, however, […]

Thanks Autocorrect: Now millennials can't spell
A texting app turned off its spellchecker, and people became very lax with their spelling accuracy. When Blend, a group texting app, paused autocorrect for 72 hours, about one-third of all words were misspelled, according to News 1130. Blend has a heavily young user base, and “weird,” “definitely,” and Budweiser were victimized. Double-letter words, misspellings […]
Even Millennials see themselves as narcissistic
Millennials are much more self-aware than is generally assumed by their crotchety grandparents. They view themselves as more narcissistic than previous generations, but not as narcissistic than older generations think, according to Live Science.

Critics could kill college's shooting club
It is said all the time that gun control advocates don’t actually seem to understands guns, and thus the issue they’re fighting. Well, we have another example. Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, offers a Shooting Spots Club. And, as the Des Moines Register writes, “Critics take aim at Simpson College shooting club.” The club is supervised by a […]
Study: Min. wage hurts young workers
When a state increases the minimum wage, younger workers stand to absorb the negative consequences. When minimum wages increased between 2006 and 2012, workers between ages 16 and 30 with less than a high-school education had their employment rate reduced by 5.6 percent, according to a National Bureau of Economic Research working paper. The negative […]
Sanders' tax plan kills 6 mil jobs
When it comes to their choice in Democratic candidates, many millennials are going for Bernie Sanders. And it’s not hard to see why in some ways. He’s not only more likable and relatable than Hillary, but he cares about issues like climate change. Another one of Bernie Sanders’ issues though is wealth distribution. While that […]

Dept. of Ed. scamming student loan borrowers
Debt relief companies have been using robocalls to drum up business from student-loan borrowers, but the practice resides in a legal gray area. Some experts label the practice a scam because borrowers who took federal student loans can manage or reduce their debt through free government programs, whereas some debt relief companies charge a fee, […]

Opposition to “safe spaces” on college campuses usually gets derided as racist and oblivious to the reality of higher education, but a journalism professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst made a forceful argument.

Prof: ISIS mirrors a lot of Americans
The Islamic State has caused the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people over the last few years, raping, enslaving, and pillaging their way across Iraq, Syria, and Libya.  While most people would compare ISIS to Nazis, one professor from the University of Michigan says that them is the “mirror image of fear-mongering Americans.” Michigan Daily reported […]

1 in. of snow cripples DC: Imagine a terror attack
America’s Capital was crippled yesterday. Roads were nearly shut down, and millions were stranded on the road for hours. Was this because of a terror attack? A massive earthquake? A blizzard?

Amash: 'They're coming for your privacy'
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to try to warn voters that Congress is debating a bill that will invade everyone’s privacy.

#MillennialBillofRights is trending on Twitter
#MillennialBillofRights was trending on Twitter Wednesday morning, and as is always the case when Gen-Y discusses their “rights” — it was disaster.
