    Received from an Oregon Resident (after the recent Portland "protest") PLEASE READ!While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 8 young people (22-26 years old, 4 males, 4 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions. They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.Ø Three voted. Of the five who didn't, none was registered to vote.Ø None of them researched independently either candidate.Ø All were for Hillary but preferred Bernie.Ø Why the Democratic Candidate?"More things are taken care of." "Time to have a woman President." "Democrats aren't sexist or racist."Ø Six of them live at home.Ø All are under their parents insurance.Ø Two have "real" jobs.Ø Four aren't working, nor are they trying hard to find a job either.Ø Parents pay for everything in their life or subsidize it.Ø Six get money from mom or dad every month.Ø Three have been on unemployment for 6+ months.Ø One is at Portland State U, doesn't work, and parents pay for everything.Ø All 8 said Trump is a racist/sexist. I asked to cite proof ... "That tape, man!"Ø When I asked, as a man myself, “Have you ever said anything like that when you've been hanging out with your buddies? All four males said "Yes."Ø Would you say it if you knew you were on tape? All four answered "No."Ø What's the difference? I asked. “You've all said bad stuff like that. Does that mean you hate women and are a sexual predator?" Nothing. No answer.Ø None could tell me how our government works ... they didn't know how laws are passed, how the House of Representatives or the Senate work.Ø None could explain how a bill is passed.Ø Only one could tell me the difference between legal and illegal immigration. One of them said, "Legal immigration is when you immigrate legally." Seriously.Ø None could explain the purpose of the Electoral College or how it works. In 10 minutes they felt they had explained everything. Nice kids ... but so ignorant.I know some awesome, phenomenal young adults; but I'm afraid the majority are like this group. Too many participation trophies, too much coddling by parents and teachers.In 1944, 18 year-olds stormed the beach at Normandy into almost certain death.In 2016, 18-year-olds feel unsafe because words hurt their feelings.This country is in deep something!

    My son, who is a Marine, is traveling to Tarawa to escort and repatriate some remains of Marines who were killed there in 1943. Pray for traveling mercies for him and that this will bring closure to their families no matter how many years it has been that they lost loved ones.

    Trump trumps 'em all. Numbers 2 and 3 together don't equal his. Mexico says no to the wall and Trump says the wall is gonna be 10 feet higher.Loveit.

    Funny how the left is going nuts about how a 20% import tax is going to 'hit your pocket' yet they fail to mention that will only be the case if you CHOOSE to buy products imported Mexico such as avocados, etc...http://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/what-about-my-guacamole-how-20-percent-tariff-mexican-imports-n713016I am from California and I can assure you that Mexico is not the only place on earth avocados are grown... Pretty much everywhere in North County San Diego is an avocado farm. So rest easy, Trump's tax will not effect your guacamole.Just my two cents... Rant over.

    OneMillionMoms.com kicks Liberal @$$!!!!! Within 2 hours of Sleep Number Beds getting raked over the proverbial COALS - they willingly chose to PULL their ads from the programs roster of commercials.
