    Its no different than it was 25 years ago. Kids get hung up on things they cant let go. Parent or parents did not instill a sense of self worth so they go off the deep end fueled by movies, social media and video games.

    I feel that we are often to easy on our children today. In past generations life was a lot harder for children from a very early age. They often saw death firsthand due to war and/or illness, they worked with their parents once they were old enough to walk, hunger was not uncommon, ect. Now children largely spend their time in safe clean environments without needing to work long hard jobs or starve. Their little minds seems to be occupied by how best to entertain themselves instead of how best to survive. As a result I feel many are mentally unprepared when something doesn't go according to how they wish it. When something in their life gets difficult they do not know how to cope and will lash out with a over reaction to solve the problem.
    People simple answers. It helps them feel like it can be fixed and won't happen to them. That said, I do believe a lot of problems may be related to the relative ease of life. But that's certainly not the single cause.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Nope, you surely can't, can you?

    When the time calls for it, I want the means to kill any threat to my home, family or person. So what?

    I understand that Americans are freaking out about the three cases of Ebola in the U.S. this year, but I wish there were the same level of alarm about the thirty-nine school shootings.
