Millennials on mother's cellphone plan

Kristen Soltis Anderson, Washington Examiner

Parents see the struggles their own children may have faced and want to do the best for them, while at the same time understanding that young adults ought to be able to stand on their own two feet. They’re caught between wanting to help their children and resenting that they have to. Parents of millennials and Gen Zers often have complaints about young adults not being self-reliant, and that makes them completely normal in the grand cycle of intergenerational griping. But as the data show (27% of men in their late 20's live with parents), those same parents are often the ones still paying their children's rent or cellphone bills.

The Conventional Wisdom About Millennial Suffering Is A Myth

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Most millennial tribulations—and, really, sweeping statements about any arbitrary generational grouping is a ham-fisted way to talk about people—are largely driven by the choices it makes rather than a sorry state of our politics, economy, or science, favors younger people in every quantifiable way. Of course life has a new set of challenges for every generation, and no one expects millennials to sit around prefacing every complaint by noting, “Hey, life is better for me in so many ways.” But it’s simply untrue, despite a sense of unearned victimhood, that millennials have it harder than those who came before them.

You might imagine that watching Venezuela degenerate into a toilet paper-free nightmare of oppression and zoo animal-devouring would give the millennials pause about the ideology that made one of the richest countries in the world into one of the poorest in the space of a decade. But if you did, then you don’t get millennials. Who needs your history and experience when they have retweets and feelz? If socialism does manage to infect America in spite of our efforts, there is one thing I’ll regret missing out on. That’s seeing the millennials looking surprised at what happens to them next.

Liberal Millennials, Not Surprisingly, Fail At Sex Too

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The fact that millennials are failing to reproduce would superficially seem like a good thing, but it is probably a bad thing for society when the younger generation is more interested in Instagram and Fortnite and endless adolescence than in doing the hard work of making babies and, you know, perpetuating the species. Ddo something. You owe it to conservatism, if not the species itself, to marry and reproduce. If current trends continue, only Normal people will be left in a couple of generations. Okay, I'll take back everything I said before. Liberal millennials, don't change a thing.

Dems Hope GOP Platform Will Help Them Woo Millennials

Mike Lillis, The Hill

House Dems think the GOP’s agenda has given them a new opportunity to win over millennials ahead of '16. Even though younger voters tend to vote Dem., the group turned out in low numbers amid the midterms last Nov.

Millennials Fed Up With O's War on the Young

Michael Barone, Human Events

The combination of higher education and health care costs and the new normal economy where young adults can't find jobs amount to what analyst Walter Russell Mead calls “the war on the young.”
