Smart Phones Are Connected to Rising Teen Suicides

 Why Millennials Hate America and How We Can Change It

Smart Phones Are Connected To Rising Teen Suicides 


Between 2010 and 2015, teen suicide or attempted suicide rose more than 50 percent. The rise is connected to an increase in teen ownership of smart phones, passing 50 percent in 2012 and soaring to 73 percent in 2015.  

Teens are spending more time on social media and less time hanging out with friends. They have less sex and much less interest in driving.  They get less sleep with many sleeping with their phones.  Well, maybe this is why there are fewer teen pregnancies and fewer drinking.  

If teens do mingle with friends, they relentlessly document their hangouts on social media where there are ongoing reminders about the exciting lives of other teens -- some of which are Hollywood style fabricated lies. Thinking that others are having a more exciting social life can cause feelings of depression and isolation.  

As teens begin to spend less time together, they are less likely to kill one another and more likely to kill themselves.  The teen suicide rate in the U.S. is now higher than the homicide rate. 

Depression is greater for 8th graders who frequent social media but lower for those involved in sports, attending religious services, doing homework, or reading print magazines and books.

Children who use electronics excessively may fail to develop normal communication and social skills. Normally chatty teenagers now sit silently, texting a friend even when both are in the same room – or at the same dinner table.  Their fingers can move at the speed of lightning on their iPads, yet many cannot hold an intelligent face-to-face conversation. 

Maybe they’re taking cues from their parents and other adults who can’t resist checking messages and texting even during worship services or over dinner with families or during conversations with their kids. 

So at what age should you allow your child to have a smart phone? 

Although 10 is the average age of smart phone ownership, even children under two --  38 percent --  have used electronic devices. Toddlers barely able to walk and tie their shoes can deftly swipe their way through an iPad.  There is a stronger connection between unhappiness and the use of social media for younger children than for older children, especially 12th graders. 

Was this why Bill Gates wouldn't allow his own children to have cell phones until they were 14? 

Or why Steve Jobs wouldn't allow his children to use Apple's new iPad, explaining that he limited the use of technology for his children? 

Why are addictive products being pushed on your kids if they're too dangerous for the precious progeny of Silicon Valley billionaires? 


Why Millennials Hate America and How We Can Change It 

Public furor over the new Advanced Placement U.S. History textbook is gaining hurricane force as deplorables see firsthand exactly why millennials prefer socialism and think America is an evil empire.  

By the People is written by James Fraser, a socialist professor of history and education at New York University.  He paints Trump as belonging in a mental institution and the Black Lives Matter movement as the downtrodden just protecting themselves from police. Leftist movements are glorified and conservatives are demonized as angry, vicious racists. 

How could impressionable high school kids who read Fraser’s APUSH textbook not become America hating socialists? 

Fraser’s hero is the Brazilian Marxist Paul Freire who in 1970 wrote Pedagogy for the Oppressed.  Freire viewed teaching as a splendid opportunity to promote social justice issues and inspire youth to rise up and overthrow capitalist hegemony. 

American Education Colleges have a lovefest with Freire’s book and recommend it to their students. So if teacher training schools are teaching Marxist driven pedagogy to future teachers, why do we expect K-12 students to be taught the real facts about their Judeo-Christian heritage and why they should stand when the national anthem is sung? 

Marxists have infiltrated the universities because they understand the key vehicle for transmitting our American culture is students.  He who controls the minds and thoughts of students controls the future of a nation. 

Marxist professors have pushed their radical left ideas and values onto multiple generations, including converting those who have grown up in religious and conservatives homes.  Now they are pushing their ideology down into K-12 schools. 

Where do you think the crazies in the Parkland high school learned their hatred? 

Who teaches the teachers? Who writes the student textbooks and the questions for federally required tests?  Who decides what teachers must learn before they will be allowed to teach in a public school? 

Leftist professors and their disciples, of course. 

We elect conservative leaders who promise us that change in education will come through policy. Well, has it? 

Despite billions of taxpayer dollars thrown into public education, millions of students can’t read and do simple math. They attend schools that are physically unsafe with mentally unhealthy environments. 

Our politicians can use their political power to end the credentialing and funding of these left wing education monopolies.  Why don’t they? 

Why should taxpayers be forced to fund institutions that teach students how to overthrow our nation? 

Our corrupt education system is controlled by leftwing teacher unions and is in cozy partnerships with leftwing national textbook companies. 

An Episcopal priest once told me it is easier to start a new congregation than to change an existing church.  It is easier and cheaper to build a new house than to repair a rat-infested, ramshackle dwelling. 

Trying to clean up this corrupt, discredited Marxist education stronghold is a waste of our time and money. 

The “ruling class,” with major corporations as their enforcers, has taken over every one of our major institutions. They have convinced themselves that the deplorables are a lower class than they.  If we are to preserve and guard those principles and institutions we hold dear, then we must walk away and leave the ruling chiefs to their broken down system and culture. 

Let’s take elementary and secondary education into our own hands and develop our own strategies.  When we take back control, American children will again be taught patriotism, the real facts about our Judeo-Christian heritage, and why American is an exceptional nation.
