Not a fair statement.  

I personally do believe that youth can step up and they should.  Minors, I think need to act under the supervision and permission of adults I would think.

It is their belief that "adults don't care", "adults aren't stepping up", "boomer generation destroyed the world", even David Hogg made similar statements saying adults don't even know how to use a phone (when it was a boomer that invented the phone he loves so much).  They are forgetting the generation that marched as young adults and teens in the streets for equality in women's rights, gay rights, racial equality, ended the Vietnam War and also the environment.  It's their turn to step up to the plate.  They do have the most to loose.

Much of what they enjoy was hard fought by adults.  However, in some cases we've made a mess of it, but we were'n't handed a Shangri-La that we destroyed.

During the Women's Marches after Trump was elected, I was so encouraged to see so many young people out there, but also people of my generation still out there. 

I do sometimes get disappointed in my generation and their silence on matters, but we have grandchildren to baby sit, aging parents, grown children living with us, jobs, etc.  Like I said, it's their turn.  

When I was a kid in Oklahoma our nuns, including teachers and nurses, were mostly young Americans or from Ireland. They smiled a lot and had fun with us children. (young = 20 to 40 years old)

In California our local church had nuns from Germany. They were in their fifties and sixties and grumpy. They also hit kids knuckles with a ruler.

I told my Dad, "They are mean. Sister Greta hit Reggie for not learning his Catechism. The nuns here never joke or smile."

My Dad told me they had hidden Jews in their convent back in Germany all during WWII. If they had been caught they would have been killed. No wonder they were not fun loving after being afraid every day.

That was one of many times I learned people often behave according to their life experiences.

I think my statement was fair.

Citizenship requires participation.

Yes, we all lead busy lives. But that is no excuse.

People make time for what is important to them, and will make excuses for the rest.

Leaving issues such as gun violence, climate change and economic inequality to teenagers and other young people is a cop out.

Mom's Demand Action On Gun Violence members take their children with them to the KY state House, parades, etc.

Many actions require a phone call or email. Anyone can do that.

Not every issue requires marching in the streets.

I see what you're saying.  Like I said when I marched in the women's march I was encouraged by the wide range of ages.  I don't think anyone is "leaving it up to children". So still not a generalization I'm willing to accept.  There's plenty of apathy in young people.  Their lack of voting got Republicans in office here in FL when elders had a much higher percentage of votes and they voted republican.  I blame the young for Florida being a  Republican State.  They need to step it up.

But I personally don't know what it's like to have to care for elderly parents, grandchildren and work full time.  It's not fair to say such people are making excuses.  Unless they don't vote.  Everyone has the obligation to vote.

I am simply saying that we all have the same 24 hours in a day.

Each of us prioritizes how to spend those 24 hours.

People spend time doing what is important to THEM.

There are plenty of people who spend no time thinking about the environment, or what they eat, or tomorrow.

Some people don't think about voting.

We do what is important to us.

Young or old, I welcome folks willing to step up and do something.

The easiest choice is to do nothing.

Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox .....

....must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true....

Quote

....to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous - they all want what you’ve got - NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!

 

In a series of Tweets President Trump obviously is siding with the TV hosts despite even Fox News pre-empting Judge Pirro's show amid the controversy.  Not even mentioning that there might be a problem with their stance or what they've said, but it's just fake news media trying to take them down.

This is the President of the United States.

Again, his usual rhetoric, aimed at a particular subset of the population.

Clearly, he is unfit for office.

Most people understand that.

This type of rhetoric continues to emphasize, just how unfit he is.

If the Republicans have a shred of dignity left, and one moral fiber remaining, they must support a challenger to the blight.

Why do you have no words for those who still support this unfit person?

They provide the fuel that continues his lunacy.

They are just as culpable as he is.

I am oftentimes embarrassed to be an American these days.

This type of rhetoric has no place in civil society.

Suggesting that the Second Amendment will be under threat is fanning the flames of lunacy.

It is so refreshing to hear the PM of New Zealand NAME the problem, and embrace change to bring about better outcomes.

I deliberately don't use the word solution, because White Nationalists will always be among us, and gun violence too.

But that doesn't mean both problems can't be controlled, managed, or whatever word you want to use, better.

I just found some humor in Trump's rant, Tweety.

The SNL show, was apparently a rerun!

Trump is such a buffoon, he didn't know he was commenting on a retread.

Hilarious!!!!!

Devin Nunes, California congressperson and Trump toady, is trending on social media for suing Twitter. Apparently he is unhappy about 2 parody accounts, Devin Nunes’ Cow, and Devin Nunes’ mom, claiming defamation.

i think it’s hilarious! I’ve been watching @DevinCow ‘s follower numbers climb tonight.

I suspect Mr. Mines is about to learn a lesson on the First Amendment.

Of course, it was a lesson he should have learned years ago, while in secondary school.

The amount of effort that rabid right puts into attempting to portray themselves as "victims," continues to amuse me on a daily basis.

They chide Blacks, and others for "embracing victimhood," yet spend an exhaustive amount of energy playing victim.

Such pitiful behavior.

I guess it also bears mentioning that White Nationalists view themselves as victims too.

Hmm.
