    And I have posted numerous sources showing that trend is — at minimum — delayed and some analysts are saying it is completely ended. The vast majority of millennials are completely vested in the workforce — unlike the vast majority of the silent generation that is no longer vested in the workforce.

    And then we'd all be poorer with even fewer jobs.

    If the above is true, then the "unaffordable rental properties" are sitting vacant, correct? Because if they aren't vacant, they aren't "unaffordable."

    If they are vacant, the owners will have to lower the rent - I doubt the owners will let their rental properties sit vacant for long. No burdensome governmental intervention needed. The free market will come to the rescue.

    Calling fake news on this one.

    We are divided because of thoughts you put down in your post.
    Finger pointing.

    A problem is R's don't believe in equal opportunity.
    The fact they think they do is also part of the problem.

    If they truly thought about equal opportunity for all, there'd been no LGBTQ rights issue and gay marriage issue. As a small example.

    the country is divided mainly because of social media .. facebook, twitter, instagram, ect:

    but social media is not the only factor

    to watch the politicians is actually frightening

    politics is no doubt a circus...on both sides

    and the liar in chief is the ringmaster

    his rhetoric is astounding to say the least ...and he is mentally unstable

    his impeachment is his own doing, he is not capable of ****

    he calls people "human scum" ... what kind of person does that?? a president??

    he pours fuel on the fire and his supporters seem to be enjoying watching the flames

    his other supporters only support him because of their hate of the democrats

    the dems are not without fault

    they hate the liar in chief and pretend they are not guilty of doing the exact same thing

    both sides lie cheat and steal

    but only trumpeters believe his lies are harmless ..they have NO shame

    for whatever reason some think he is the guy that can promote the rightwing agenda

    when in fact after the next election the republican party will be toast

    and the divide will be wider and more dangerous than today

    if a democrat president did 10% of what trump has done he would have been impeached 2 years ago

    the country has always been divided but the liar in chief is the main culprit

    now the trumperters will refute this entire rant

    so be it

    Because trumps lies never forced me to buy something or started a war.

    That doesn't mean the R party will die off. I always say the R's of tomorrow are the liberals of today.

    Oh no, I don’t see the entire party dying off — once they see they are no longer competitive and can no longer game the system they will abandon many of their more controversial platforms.
