Treated As Second Class Citizens By Duluth Model Primed Government Services And Education Young Men Are Opting OutBy Robert Donachie: Young men are working less, according to a US National Bureau of Economic Research study published Monday. Men ages 21 to 30 years old worked 12 percent fewer hours in 2015 than they did in 2000, the economists found. Around 15 percent of young men worked zero weeks in 2015, a rate nearly double that of 2000.
Since 2004, young men have increasingly allocated more of their free time to playing video games and other computer-related activities, according to the study. Thirty-five percent of young men are living at home with their parents or a close relative, up 12 percent since 2000.
The results of the economists’ research are interesting, considering there are 10 million American men ages 24 to 64 that have completely dropped out of the workforce. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in June that there were nearly 6 million jobs waiting to be filled.
By Toy Soldiers: Oh Canada. It seems that every few months I come across another head-slapping instance of utter stupidity. The most recent case deals with the acquittal of a woman accused of raping a 14-year-old boy. Barbara George knew the victim through her son. She assumed the victim was older because he looked and acted “mature”.

According to an article:
Their sexual activity took place after the complainant entered George’s bedroom, along with George’s 14-year-old daughter, during a teenage party involving drinking at her home. The daughter eventually left, but the complainant and George, who were both not drinking, spoke alone for several hours. The trial judge found as a fact that the complainant initiated their first kiss and the sexual intercourse that followed. He also found as a fact that George, although “reluctant at first,” was a willing participant in the sexual intercourse that followed the kissing.
The appellant did not find out the boy’s age until months later when she asked her son.
By Joachim I Krueger Ph.D.In Scrubs episode #77 (season 4, episode 9), “My malpractical decision,” which aired on September 21, 2004, we meet Neena Broderick (Julianna Margulies), an attractive malpractice lawyer who came to the hospital to check on her sick father. JD is afraid of her. “Ok. Stay calm. You can handle this. She can’t be that much of a ball buster.” In fact, she is. To the tune of “One singular sensation” she hits 10 men in the groin with a stick and kicks another 5 in the same spot with her pointed shoes. This takes barely 30 seconds. Only the orthodox Jew, whose hat she takes, remains unscathed. Perhaps she spares him because he is not the typical predacious, testosterone-poisoned white male. The man whose cane she takes to bust balls just tumbles to the ground, groin intact. Frightened JD exclaims: “I’m wearing a cup!” She retorts: “Thanks for the crotch update.”
