TPP. Which Trump foolishly pulled out of.

hahahaha--Congrats! Bulls eye! You've cherry picked the most far left extreme craziest place in all of New England!

I can't stand that place either. That's where we send the faaaaaar left loons. Most of the typical "left" in New England are living in small cities and towns, going to work, spending time with family, paying the bills, not doing their stint as radical student activists living in Cambridge, especially near Harvard Square. You really crack me up!

(apologies to any ordinary folks who may live in and around Cambridge, MA.)

"Patriotism, religion and having children rate lower among younger generations than they did two decades ago, WSJ/NBC News survey finds"

I think blind patriotism of the Love Or Leave is NOT what this country was built on. The decline of religion lies at the feet of religions themselves. And is a Very Good Thing. Having children should not be the default goal of humans. Critical thinking skills are a GOOD THING. I call this a good thing all around.

No one's religious liberty is at risk in our country. Any man can practice any religion he wants to. However, said man has no right to foist that religion on me.

No worse than shoving it down our throats, something the right still hasn't figured out yet. Both bad. It's like the right wing maga mind only operates in binary

The values that are gone that disturb me the most are:

1. That people should WORK for what they get. (Unless, of course, they actually cannot work because of some reason beyond their control.)

2. That two people should be married before they start a family, and they should not have more children than they can support on their own. (And, yes, I know that is old-fashioned, but I don't care.)

3. That manners and mutual respect for each matter.

4. That immigrants should learn English, so that this is one nation, and not just a collection of various communities under the same government.

Re: bolded. Why? What is the real societal impact to people doing their thing?

That's your opinion, you have every right to it.

None of what you're saying is factual, though. FYI.
