    Total intelligence failure by the Biden administration. Not a coincidence all this shit is happening around the same time.

    It's irrefutable.....

    Pipelines being hacked by Russians, and State Department officials under the Biden administration are telling us that it's a private matter between the pipeline company and the Russian hackers.

    I know most of you don't drive because you live at home and don't work, but the rest of the country is suffering.
    Do most people not live at their home?

    The term "live at home" or "living at home" is interpreted as being an adult and still living with your parents.

    If you mean is it a thing in the United States and around the world, then yes.

    Wife and I drove back from ATL yesterday. Had to fill up in Columbia SC -- wasnt an issue. On the Outer Banks diff. story. waited in line for a half hour to fill up. 90% of the gas stations are out. Sporadically some are being refilled by tankers.

    Atleast we're not seeing price gouging by independent stations -- maybe there's a law against that for gas?

    And it's a sign of laziness and/or liberal values?

    Living at home? In my experience, it's a sign of laziness and of those people who still do, most of them are Liberal. The most fragile Americans in today's day and age are the younger 35 and under generation. Most of this demographic votes Liberal. Most of these people are having a hard time being self-sufficient. Another good example is all of those people being arrested in Portland and Seattle who are with Antifa. If you look at their mug shots....all young people. Judging by their appearance, they wouldn't be able to hold down a steady job. So unless they all live under a bridge, they probably live at home with their parents.

    Liberal values teach people to be free with their expression and to be who they are and be accepting of others. But it doesn't teach them that if you want to be successful, that you have to work hard for it. Liberal values are being poisoned right now by Socialist values. If I don't have to work, the government will still take care of me. As they should. Because being rich and wealthy is evil, and woe is me.

    What do you mean “most of these people”? Are you implying that they’re everywhere? You say “in my experience” and then rant about Antifa in cities I doubt you’ve been to. Doing guesswork as to whether or not they can hold down a job. That’s not your experience.

    I live in a city with around 7 million people, went to a school that has 40k students, and I can honestly tell you that I don’t think I know an adult who lives with their parents. And many of the people I know are Liberal (it is Atlanta after all). Many are not (it is Georgia after all).

    You should probably turn off the news, stop paying attention to extreme outlying groups, and go and meet more actual humans.

    I speak from factual research: https://www.census.gov/library/stori...%20from%202018.



    In 2019, there were 25.5 million shared households, making up 19.8% of all U.S. households.

    The number of adults ages 18 and older living in shared households increased in 2019 to 81.2 million, representing about a third (32.2%) of all adults ages 18 and older.

    Disagree with that? Take it up with the Census then.

    Why is gas $2 higher than what it was last year? It wasn't even this high prior to Covid.
    Do you not understand that Covid made gas prices go down?

    People are increasingly living at home because the cost of housing is exploding. It has less than nothing to do with people's attitudes.

    Socialism means control by the workers. If you really are against handouts and lazy non-workers, then surely you would be in favor of a massive estate tax.

    Not reading responses, I have work to do. Gotta pay off this house.

    I don’t disagree with the census. I disagree with your take. For starters...how many of those 18+ are students who live at home? How many are temporary, due to various circumstances? Particularly Covid and it’s hostility toward certain businesses. What proportion of impoverished communities make up this number?

    If anything, because there is less housing, people in rural communities are more likely to live with their parents than white liberals in cities. The market is crazy right now.

    There’s no context with the census. Your laziness, woe is me argument, isn’t genuine. You’re just inferring things because you want it to be true.

    As I said, I live in a liberal city (and I’m 28) and don’t know anyone who lives with their parents. Aside from a cousin who’s a recovering heroin addict but that’s a whole other issue. I doubt he is registered to vote and if he is, he definitely doesn’t vote democrat.

    Why disagree with my take? My take was simple. More young adults live with their parents than ever before, and most young adults vote Democrat. Whether you know or don't know anyone who lives at home is irrelevant. I'm not saying there is a concrete correlation between voting Democrat as a young adult and still living at home, but I do find it peculiar. I just don't hear or see the same strife coming from the few young people that vote Republican.

    I think there is definitely something to Liberalism being taken over by Socialist ideals and this in turn is breeding a different kind of voter and only harms young adults in the long run. Why are more young people voicing their opinions on wealth distribution as opposed to creating wealth? Why are more young adults talking about having a McDonald's worker make $15 an hour versus having that McDonald's worker use that job as a stepping stone to something bigger and greater. Lack of ingenuity and lack of drive breeds laziness.

    Young conservatives are even more likely than young liberals to live at home. Have you ever met like, any southern Christians?
