I was in the mall earlier this week and I was appalled to learn some new things about our teenagers. I went in several shops looking for T’s, hats, or anything funny and pertinent to young people of the day. What I saw was fifty versions of the F-word incorporating the lack of any hint of imagination. I saw T’s, hats, accessories, wall posters, what have you, themed with profanity. I didn’t see dildos in the form of Minions, toilet paper with crap already attached or, “head” sets that look like something a Viking would wear to bed. That’s probably on tap for next Xmas season. And we wonder why teachers should be carrying hand guns.
In terms of smart consideration see the rarity of what should be young adult thought processing below.
From The Ransomed Heart Ministries:
The book “Killing Lions” is a conversation between John and Sam(his son) Eldredge about the trials young men face.
[Sam] Our adolescent culture really does play into our confusion; with so many answers supposedly on the other side of our keyboards, we often won’t ask for counsel, and even more often don’t want to ask anyway. I have found myself swinging between being impulsive and being immobilized, and from what I’ve seen I’m not alone. If the choice is up to us and no other guidance is forthcoming, the only natural response in a culture of “instant gratification” (read, impatience) is either to jump at something, anything, or to never jump at all.
Those that don’t jump usually have found some kind of escapism by creating a small world that they feel safe in or by sinking into the imaginary worlds of TV shows and video games. Avoiding that, we might hitch our wagon to the latest revolution, simply wanting to catch some of the momentum and meaning it seems to offer. If all we are doing is spending time and energy on a product, not stepping into something we believe is right for us, it is only a matter of time before all that is left is buyer’s remorse.

Confused About Who's Telling The Truth & Why?
The media is back touting Trump. Wonder why that is? Could it be that the “media’ is the heartbeat of liberalism in the U.S.? The polls say that Clinton can beat Trump. But no one is talking about what she would do with a sane candidate for opposition. Why all of a sudden is the media apparatchik promoting the idea that Vladimir Putin thinks Trump is great ? First of all, Putin needs another international knut bag to take the attention off himself. Wouldn’t Putin love it if our nut case launched an attack that would provoke a nuclear response from the peanut gallery of rouge “nations”? Yes, he would.
The smartest thing that Ben Carson could do is to put distance between himself and the present Republican party. The only difference between this bunch and the Liberals is the stripes are horizontal. The extreme just runs in a different direction. See immigration reform. See Mario’s 58 year old policy on Cuba. See Jeb’s blasé spend-thrifting because his ego won’t let him face reality. It’s other people’s money. He and Rubio have a problem with that concept and spending - - - OURS.
Boarding Planes in Israel
From a friend and reader--
TEL AVIV, Israel - The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It's an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.
Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.
You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement: "Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is pleased to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London . Shalom!
