    Most beer drinkers support brands working with transgender spokespeople, according to a new poll taken amid conservative criticism over a partnership between Bud Light and transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. A Morning Consult poll released Thursday found that 53 percent of monthly beer drinkers said they would feel favorable toward a brand working with a transgender spokesperson, while only 28 percent said they would feel unfavorable toward the brand. About 20 percent said they do not know or have no opinion. Flourish logoA Flourish chart Those who drink beer at least once a month leaned more Democratic and younger than those...

    When an “entitled” customer rudely tried to push around a McDonald’s employee, the middle-aged woman gave the insolent punk a verbal beatdown that left him speechless.He filmed the exchange and posted it to TikTok to bash her – but was stunned when nearly all comments took her side!The female McDonald’s employee was highly praised by those who viewed the video confrontation. In a video that has gone viral, one female McDonald’s employee was applauded for refusing to allow one extremely entitled drive-thru customer to push her around. Although the video is only 37 seconds long, it’s very clear why the...

    Gen-X is the most aborted generation in American history, with one out of every three of its potential members having been aborted. Half of its parents are divorced or separated. Many were “latchkey kids,” fending for themselves after school. Now they are being asked to carry the burden of the largest government debt in history, bequeathed them by their parents. It is easy to understand why Gen-X is cynical, skeptical, and scrappy.

    We want an America that’s fun, happy, and free—the country we grew up in and that we crave for our children. Some social media blue checks had a bit of a temper tantrum this week following the release of a New York Times poll that showed overwhelming support for Republicans among Gen X voters. The poll broke down the results by the respondents’ ages, and while the category encompassing Gen X also technically included some younger Baby Boomers, it captured most of the so-called slacker generation. According to the survey, Gen Xers, those born between 1965 and 1980, now prefer...

    Look, we have heard all the jokes. We know how you talk about us. And now you are saying there might never be a Gen-X President (as if Donald Trump did some sort of credit to his generation in that role). The thing is, WE DON’T CARE. You know this about us. Because we get it, and you likely don’t. We have been described as some kind of neglected middle child between boomers and the Millennials, but we are not your mother’s Jan Brady (or our own, frankly). We were the first generation to experience a high volume of moms...

  • In yet another poll, the youngest voters hate Joe Biden most

    We have already looked at a few of the important top-line problems with Joe Biden's standing in the new New York Times/Sienna College poll. But here's one that seems to show up in a lot of polls lately: The youngest voters in this poll are also the sourest on Biden. When asked whether they approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, a striking 69% of respondents aged 18-29 said they "somewhat" or "strongly disapprove." Only 1% (!) in that age group said they "strongly approve" of Biden's job performance, and he has a combined 19% approval rating...

    No one likes to think of their own mortality or realize they have more days behind them than ahead. But one sure way to realize you’re on the back 9 is when the music you grew up with starts showing up on the “oldies” or classic rock station. Personally, I don’t have to worry about that – the music I liked growing up was wildly unpopular in its time and will never make a classic rock station. But the music Baby boomers grew up on is also what we Gen X’ers grew up with, having it forced on us by...

    Nobody ever talks about them. Having arrived roughly between 1965 and 1980, these children seem to have slipped through the cracks of popular culture, their legacy being a few dumb movies and some aging icons, none of whom any millennial today could name. Born into households averaging 1.75 children, this tiny cohort sneaked through its small temporal window like an Army Special Ops unit. They landed on the scene just in time to rescue head-scratching parents from VCRs and DVD players, and even more miraculous, they could operate those wrist watches with the tiny buttons on the side. And they...

    Nearly half of respondents of a national poll conducted by Morning Consult are just fine with the name of NFL team The Washington Redskins. The football team, which has been for years accused of racism against Native Americans despite polls finding Native American majorities support the name, has been slated for change to placate a small group of online leftist agitators. However, it turns out that far more Americans believe the name ought to remain than those who prefer a more culturally sensitive name. According to the poll, 49 percent of respondents believe the Redskins should keep their nickname, with...
  • How Alex P. Keaton Predicted The New Conservative Movement

    For people of a certain advanced age, the first openly Republican or conservative fictional character they can remember is Alex P. Keaton from the NBC sitcom “Family Ties.” The role launched Michael J. Fox’s career, but it did something else, too: in many ways, Alex Keaton predicted the conservative movement that we see emerging today. Energetic and aggressive, Keaton was an unapologetic conservative character at a time conservatism was in many ways an apologetic underdog. It is important to note that Alex P. Keaton was born in 1965, the very first year of Generation X. The comic tension he provided...

    The 64-year-old leader of the Supreme Court posed a question on Wednesday that some in his generation have been asking for months: Does saying “OK, boomer” count as age discrimination? If the query hadn’t been an earnest attempt to test the bounds of a lawyer’s legal argument, Chief Justice John Roberts might have followed it up with another viral expression: “Asking for a friend.” But Roberts wasn’t typing a tweet. This was a meeting of the highest court in the land, and its nine justices - older federal employees ranging from 52 to 86 years old - were hearing a...

    Suicide rates among young people are rising, reaching the highest levels since 2000, a study published Tuesday finds. But most alarming, the researchers said, was a 21 percent rise in boys aged 15-19 dying by suicide in 2017 from the year before. "Previous studies talked more of an increase in female suicide, but what we’re showing is that rates among males are also increasing rapidly," Oren Miron, the study's lead author and a research associate in biomedical informatics at Harvard Medical School, told NBC News.
  • After the Boomers Are Gone, the Bloodshed Begins

    The Boomer Age is drawing to its close. When one speaks of this group, it tends to mostly focus on white Boomers (not that others are outside the group, but to such a great extent, it really does mean those of mostly European background, if for no other reason than they have been the largest demographic group). When that age does end, we will see an ever dwindling European demographic majority in many Western nations (Canada and the USA are almost certainly the first, soon followed by a variety of European nations). That significant point of majority will be fading,...
  • Colon cancer deaths rise among younger adults, and no one knows why

    CNN ^ | Jacqueline Howard,
    Adults in the United States are dying from colon and rectal cancers at an increasing rate about age 50, when they should just be beginning screenings, according to a new study from the American Cancer Society. Since routine screening is generally not recommended for most adults under 50, the cancers found in younger adults are often in advanced stages and more deadly, said Dr. James Church, a colorectal surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Church, who was not involved in the new study, said he has seen this trend in death rates up close. Last year, on separate occasions,...

    Are you sure you want your MTV? On its 35th birthday, a quick glimpse at the network shows it’s hardly what it once was. While change isn’t always easy... it’s not always needed either. What started as a network dedicated to airing music videos and sharing insight on the topic has transformed into a smorgasbord of reality shows that teens who listen to Justin Bieber are glued to. It’s a far cry from the station’s days of “120 Minutes” and “Daria” and Kurt Loder staring into your soul telling you what you needed to know at the top of every...

    It’s hard to believe this year is the 30th Anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the iconic film written and directed by the late John Hughes. In the film, Ferris Bueller is a high school senior and popular and smooth talking con artist who intricately plots and executes a day of hooky from school, while outwitting his parents and arch nemesis, the Dean of Students, Ed Rooney. Ed Rooney… Ferris Bueller, being a senior in high school in 1986 was born in 1968 and therefore a charter member in Generation X. Bueller, his best friend, Cameron, and girlfriend, Sloan represent...
