Bad news for conservatives as survey finds that Generation Z may be even more progressive than Millennials.

Wouldn’t it be great if Right Wing conservativism just died out eventually?

From their strong belief that humanity played a central role in causing the climate crisis to their overwhelming dislike of President Trump, the young Americans who have been classified as Generation Z — comprised of those between the ages of 13 and 21 — could be even more progressive than the slightly older millennial generation, according to a Pew Research Center survey published Thursday.

“Gen Z looks a lot like millennials politically, which is terrible news for Republicans,” Acadia University lecturer Jeffrey Sachs wrote in response to Pew’s survey, which found that 70 percent of Gen-Z’ers disapprove of Trump, 54 percent believe the planet is warming because of human activity, and 70 percent believe the government should be doing more to solve the nation’s problems.

“This data suggests there is a reason why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets so much heat from conservatives — she and this new congressional class not only represent the demographic changes that scare some, but she embodies the ideological trends, too,” argued Anthony Michael Kreis, visiting assistant professor of law at Chicago-Kent College.

“There’s real enthusiasm for diversity and government reform” among Generation Z, Kreis noted.

If this is accurate we should have universal health care, mandated renewable energy programs, and higher tax rates within the next ten years.  

I personally welcome our Nintendo Switch playing overlords.

    ” “I want to find out the truth,” Giuliani blew up.

    “That’s because you have a hysteria going on in the media that interprets everything against Donald Trump,” Giuliani yelled.

    “There’s no hysteria here, sir,” Tapper calmly replied.

    “You all should be CAREFUL,” Giuliani warned, adding the news about Trump was “disgusting.””<WTF?

      “I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign… I have not. I said the President of the United States,”
      “This was a boldfaced lie, of course, which leads to the big question: Why is Giuliani saying this now? Both Giuliani and Trump have always maintained that there was no Russian collusion, period.”
      ““Of course, if the position had always been that maybe there was collusion, but Trump wasn’t involved, the response to the special counsel’s investigation would have been to fully cooperate. Any rational leader in this position would want to know who the bad actors were in his or her campaign. But that was not the response, because that has not been the position — until now.”
      Everyone was shocked when Giuliani admitted he and his boss have been lying the whole time about collusion. ”
      ““When there is bad news coming, Giuliani blurts it out, the public gawks, and the shock is absorbed in advance. Giuliani, with his theatrics, socializes bad news so well that by the time it drops, most people are numb to it.””Giuliani has doubled down on his strategy of distract, shock and confuse,””

      “Trump could be impeached on a lot of potential charges. There is not going to be a shortage of crimes to list in any articles of impeachment, but one of the easiest to prove is going to be his failure to uphold and execute the laws of the of the United States.

      The presidential oath of office isn’t for show. Those aren’t just empty words that Trump said two years ago. ”

      “Trump was trying to do business in Russia through Election Day. The motive for Trump selling out his country to the Russians was money.
      MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace that the motive for Trump’s collusion was that he is bought, owned and paid for by Bussis.”

      “Perfectly normal?” Conway asked. “It’s perfectly insane for witnesses in or subject of a criminal investigation to be discussing testimony.”

    THIS is Getting Old… “not in accordance with biblical principles,”
    “A ruling by a Midwestern federal appeals court 30 years ago said the fair housing law did “not prohibit discriminations against homosexuals.”
    ““The FACT that a federal court thinks otherwise and has ruled that the federal Fair Housing Act does not protect an older same-sex couple just underlines that much more must be done to protect LGBTQ older people from bias and mistreatment as they age,”

    “The biggest story, of course is the sheer number of aging Baby Boomers. In 2006, about 37 million Americans were 65 or older. By 2016, one of every seven Americans, or 49.2 million, had reached age 65. By 2060, that number will double: 98 million Americans will be at least 65.
    At the same time, the number of those 85 and older (who are most likely to need personal assistance) will more double by 2040, from about 6.4 million in 2016 to 14.6 million.”

    “An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll published Thursday showed the president has seen his approval rating drop by 9 points and his disapproval rating climb by 9 points among suburban men.

    A GOP source familiar with Thursday’s meeting said Rove talked about his column published in The Wall Street Journal the previous day that warned
    “a base-only strategy is a perilous bet for 2020” and advised “the party that realizes this first may gain the edge in the coming presidential contest.”
