40 Signs That We Have Seriously Messed Up The Next Generation Of Americans

What in the world have we done to our kids?  If you spend much time with them, you quickly realize that the next generation of Americans is woefully unprepared to deal with the real world.  They are overweight, lazy, undisciplined, disrespectful, disobedient to their parents, selfish, self-centered, and completely addicted to entertainment.  And that is just for starters.  We feed them insane amounts of sugar and high fructose corn syrup and then when they become overactive we pump them full of prescription drugs to calm them down.  Instead of raising our children ourselves, we allow the government schools and the entertainment industry to do it.  By the time they reach the age of 18, they have spent far more time with their teachers, their video games and the television than they have spent with us.  Our young people are #1 in a lot of global categories, but almost all of them are bad.  Young people in the United States are more obese than anyone else in the world, more sexually active than anyone else in the world and they become pregnant more (Read More...)
