    Every year, the U.S. Census Bureau releases new data on income trends in the American population that reinforce certain traditional lessons about life -- which may be why liberals do not talk about this data much. Are there any patterns in the lives of those who do -- and do not -- succeed financially in the United States? Yes. For example, people who stay in school longer and graduate tend to earn more money than people who do not. Table PINC-03, which the Census Bureau released last week, categorizes Americans 25 and older by their "educational attainment" and their "total...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Rate of kids living with married parents jumps

    09/14/2018 2:04:14 PM PDT · by dangus · 37 replies
    The portion of children under 6 living with "married parents" in 2017 jumped about half of one percent from the year before. That may not seem like much, but it's a dramatic departure from long-term trends. I think the reason this isn't a news story is because the government looks to the Center for Disease Control for news about who's raising who, and this data comes from the Census Department. I gleaned these numbers from data that the Census Department was publishing showing the decline in the poverty rate; the CDC hasn't published 2017 figures. In 2016, 16.46 million children...

    Greetings fellow freepers of all stripes and shades! It's been a long long time since I last posted anything that was not fraught with frustration towards our "representatives" in congress or outright rage towards unelected government officials who have hijacked our constitutional republic. Well, it's time to come up for air. I am taking my oldest son (now 28) on a road trip that we had planned way back in 2009 but couldn't afford to because OBAMA. We are going to be attending the Reno International Air Races from the 12th to the 16th. We'll be driving down tomorrow at...

    Mischa the cat spent all her life with her previous owner until things started to change when she was nine years old. As the household grew and she continued to age, they had less time to be with her and she started having some urinary tract issues. Chatons Orphelins Montréal"Her former owner contacted a local veterinary clinic to make an appointment, but it wasn't for treatment for the cat. It was for euthanasia," Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a rescue group in Montréal, Canada, shared with Love Meow. The clinic didn't want to put down a cat whose illness was treatable....

    SALT LAKE CITY — American women might be waiting longer to have kids. But according to a new report, more women are having children than a decade ago. A new Pew Research Center report found that the share of American women who have given birth was higher in 2016 than it was 10 years ago. In fact, 86 percent of women from 40 to 44 years old said they were mothers, compared to 80 percent who said the same in 2016. The number is similar to what it was back in the 1990s.

    The aunt of an Iowa college student who authorities say was murdered by an illegal immigrant is imploring people not to make assumptions based on the alleged killer’s nationality. “Please remember, evil comes in EVERY color,” Billie Jo Calderwood wrote Tuesday night on Facebook, alongside a black-and-white photo of her 20-year-old niece Mollie Tibbetts. “Our family has been blessed to be surrounded by love, friendship and support throughout this entire ordeal by friends for all different nations and races,” she added. “From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.”

    Father Karol Wojtyła, who later became Pope John Paul II, is pictured in the early 1950s surrounded by young people. Father Wojtyła would regularly go on mountain excursions with a group of young married couples and students that called itself Środowisko, meaning environment or milieu. (Archival Collection of Adam Bujak)Karol Wojtyła, the man who became St. John Paul II, regularly escaped from two of the worst totalitarian regimes in history: German Nazism, and later, Soviet Communism. By “escaped,” I do not mean that he ran away. Rather, as a priest and bishop, he escaped only by going deeper.As the...

    John Stossel’s recent column, “Dads Needed,” contains some timely, important, but well-known—at least within the Christian conservative community—truths. Much of the column focuses on the work of author, speaker, and former feminist, Warren Ferrell—especially Ferrell’s new book "The Boy Crisis"… Along with his recent column, “Stossel on Reason” recently interviewed Dr. Ferrell. Here Ferrell notes, “Men and boys started falling behind when government began subsidizing single mothers.” He later adds, “It doesn’t make a difference whether she [a single mother] needs a man, it makes a difference that her children need a father.” Farrell also notes that children without fathers...

    Sometimes a society's values change sharply with almost no one noticing, much less anticipating the consequences. In 1968, according to a Gallup survey, 70 percent of American adults said that a family of three or more children was "ideal" -- about the same number as Gallup surveys starting in 1938. That number helps explain the explosive baby boom after Americans were no longer constrained by depression and world war. Those values and numbers didn't last. By 1978, Gallup reported that only 39 percent considered three or more children "ideal." The numbers have hovered around there ever since, spiking to just...

    metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    One of the things that I have come to appreciate the most was the family meal that we had when I was growing up as a child. During my early childhood we would hold formal “sit down” meals in the Dining Room. Us children each had our own roles / chores in regards to this. On Sunday we would have the largest and most elaborate meals. Mealtime was the opportunity when we could all talk about our day, our hopes and dreams, and things that interested us. At the time, I didn’t realize how important it was. Then, during the...

  • Make Babies Great Again: Hungarian Fertility Rates Rise, Turns Back Demographic Decline

    Hungary’s pro-family culture has resulted in a rising fertility rate for married women which is “winding back the clock” on demographic decline — a trend once deemed irreversible in Europe and used by globalists to justify mass migration from the third world. “The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable,” writes the author of “Is Hungary Experiencing a Policy-Induced Baby Boom?” from the Institute for Family Studies website. “That’s unusual,” author Lyman Stone wrote, “as most countries around the...

    In their latest attempt to swing this fall’s election toward the democrats, the left now wants us to focus on “the children.” They haven’t really thought this through. Liberals the world over should work hard to avoid any debate that significantly involves the lives and wellbeing of children. Most anyone armed with even the slightest bit of the truth when it comes to liberalism and “the children” can easily quiet the left in virtually any debate that involves children or the family… …If we can’t trust liberals to instruct children properly on who is a male and who is a...

    I've lived long enough to witness the racist pre-Civil Rights negro-controlling techniques evolving into the self-perpetuating genocidal black machine we have today. What the Klan, Jim Crow, segregation, and every other racist policy couldn't accomplish has been accomplished beyond the expectations of the American Eugenics Society because of a singular unalterable fact. The society that perverts the family structure of man, woman, and child cannot stand, because every society that abandons the truth of God will eventually collapse. Once that foundation has eroded, the society will crumble under the sheer weight of its own depravity. But many will say, "Wait...

    Western culture is in the midst of a full-bore campaign to promote the full acceptance – indeed, the “celebration” of non-marital sexual behavior, including homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism. Hollywood is certainly playing its part in this indoctrination process. There has been a concerted effort by the film industry to present a positive portrayal of the LGBTQ lifestyle. According to industry analysis site BoxOfficeMojo.com, out of over 200 film genres and sub-genres, gay and Lesbian-themed films rank an astounding #6 in terms of sheer quantity. Since 2007, some 342 gay/lesbian movies have been produced – more than double the number of...
