Entitled millennials?

I feel like I just got over the generation differences between my parents (the rural southern 50s) and mine (1980s Gen-X) and now we have this new phenomena called Millennials.  My step-son is one.  I work with another.  I don’t

Religion, Morality and the lack of both!

The 2016 elections has been very telling to me and I feel like I need to rant about it.  This is my opinion and nothing more, based on observations I have seen in the electorate and the direction I have
