  • Introducing Generation Z

    by coldwarrior ( 141 Comments › )
    Filed under Uncategorized at July 5th, 2017 - 6:00 am

    some interesting insight on, well, what comes after the snowflakes. Gen X’s kids:

    ERIE, Pa. — Max Bloomstine has a positive view of the nation’s growing diversity, believes the American dream is attainable (but doesn’t believe he’s entitled to it) and is more into the “we” instead of the “me.”

    He is politically independent but leans conservative, attends church on a regular basis, and views his parents — not sports figures or celebrities — as role models.

    Right now, though, two things weigh heavily on his mind: where to attend college next year (it’s either going to be the University of Pittsburgh or Rochester) and working on a summer job. (ED: GOOD GOD MAN!!! HAIL TO PITT!!!)

    “I am a good entrepreneur when it comes to online gaming administration,” he said.

    Say hello to Generation Z, the most recent to come of age. It is the youth of America, with its oldest members in their early 20s.

    Sometimes referred to as the iGeneration, as they literally grew up with technology and social media in their hands, they are poised to dramatically change the cultural, economic and political landscape for some time to come.

    Born between 1996 and 2010, they are very similar to their Gen X parents, that small, pragmatic generation that fell between the larger baby boomer and millennial generations.

    “Gen Z actually like and trust their parents, who have been transparent with them, much more than any generation before,” said Jeff Brauer, a political science professor at Keystone College in suburban Scranton, Pa., who has produced one of the first comprehensive studies on the next generation.

    Analyzing research from Wright State University in Ohio on 1,200 Generation Z students at 15 colleges and universities across the country, Brauer also used exit polling from CNN and census data to draw his conclusions.

    “They are not as impressed with fame — celebrities, athletes, politicians — as are their predecessors, since fame in their lifetime has become rather easy to obtain with social media and reality TV,” Brauer added.

    Generation Z is diverse. They are only 55 percent white and will be the last majority-white generation in America. And they have the most positive outlook toward the nation’s growing diversity of any previous generation.

    Generation Z is a product of 9/11, global terrorism, school shootings, perpetual wars, the Great Recession, high unemployment and constant budget cuts. Because of all that, they are cautious, even fearful, of an uncertain world and economy. Security and safety are very important to them, as they have grown up in such an unstable society.

    They are distrustful of “big” employers because they’ve seen good people, who did all the right things, get laid off from longstanding jobs and careers. They are cautious with finances, always looking for the best deals and the best value.

    “When I shop, which I do almost exclusively online, I compare everything until I get the best quality for the least cost,” said Bloomstine.

    Generation Z is also more religious than preceding generations — attending organized weekly church services at about twice the rate of millennials, Generation Xers and baby boomers.

    They are interested in issues that involve themselves but that also impact the broader community — education, employment, security and the environment all concern them.

    “Politically, Generation Z is liberal-moderate with social issues, like support for marriage equality and civil rights, and moderate-conservative with fiscal and security issues,” said Brauer.

    “While many are not connected to the two major parties and lean independent, Gen Z’s inclinations generally fit moderate Republicans.”

    The Republican Party, if it plays its cards right, could make lasting inroads with this generation, even at an early age — something the GOP has struggled with for decades.

    Had he been able to vote last November, Bloomstine definitely would have picked Donald Trump for president.

    “I was not old enough to vote for him, but I was very engaged and informed all throughout the election,” Bloomstine said. “I liked most his independence from the political parties and his willingness to challenge them when he felt they were not serving the American people.”

    If Trump runs in four years, would Bloomstine vote for him? “As long as he continues to be himself, absolutely.”

    Last year was the first presidential election in which Generation Z voted, according to Brauer, “yet there was virtually no attention paid to this demographic.”

    In fact, in almost every case, its members were simply lumped in with their significantly different counterparts, the millennials, in the 18-to-29 age group.

    “This was disingenuous and unfortunate and didn’t give the true picture of the election,” said Brauer. “Looking at the data, there was virtually no attempt to separate these two very different generations of voters.”

    Brauer explains that, from 2012 to 2016, Democratic candidates lost 5 percent of the youth vote nationally (down from 60 percent to 55 percent). In Florida, Democrats’ margin of victory among the young dropped 16 percentage points. In both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the drop was 19 points. In Wisconsin, 20 points.

    “It is unlikely that such significant drops were simply due to the more liberal millennial generation changing their minds from one election to the next,” said Brauer.

    “It is much more likely the precipitous drops were due to the more conservative Generation Z being able, for the first time, to express their political inclinations, especially in the economically hard-hit swing states.”

    Therefore, Generation Z possibly had a major, yet completely overlooked, impact in this historic election. “Generation Z voters were likely attracted to Trump because of his strong stances on national security and economic recovery — the main concerns of that generation,” said Brauer.

    “This generation is different, and they are about to have a profound impact on commerce, politics and trends,” Brauer concludes. “If politicians and business leaders aren’t paying attention yet, they better, because they are about to change the world.”

    Ironic, the generation who were chided and tagged for being cynical, ignored, pragmatic, independent, apathetic, disaffected and unfocused latch-key-kids-slackers…’here we are now entertain us‘…will help save America by raising kids of their own. Gen-X helps save America because we are unimpressed and bored cynics, unbelievable.

    I can say this, my and Mrs Coldwarior’s kids are indeed not coddled, we are very VERY honest and transparent with them; funny how that happened with Gen-Xer’s from different countries. They do go to church. Yes, they are at the tail end of this Generation Z, but I already see truth in Ms Zito’s article all around me.

    Yeah…frankly….this is terrifying, i need a break. WTF just happened????

      Good morning. This is an interesting generation, their social , fiscal and security views sound to me like
      populism. They mesh very well with Trump.

      That was a very good ‘generation X is sick of your bullshit piece’. Probably would have been even better if I knew WTF Livejournal is.

      So. Last nite, Lobo and I both posted pieces about CNN threatening a person they thought created the .gif Trump used. The article I linked to said

      CNN could find no earlier instance of the GIF. The GIF was later edited into a video with sound and tweeted by the President on Sunday.

      In other words, what was tweeted by Trump and what this kid did aren’t the same gifs.

      And now we have

      If BuzzFeed is correct, it appears CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski outed the wrong guy

      And according to BuzzFeed, it’s likely the video didn’t come from Reddit at all, but from Facebook:

      The problem is that there is a still-unknown third party here who is just as important, if not more important, to this story.

      If the question is what is Trump or Trump’s team looking at, then the fact this video is based on a GIF from Reddit only means that whoever made the video version reads /r/The_Donald. Whoever forwarded the video almost certainly didn’t get it off Reddit.

      The video most likely came from a far-right Facebook page that routinely scrape /r/The_Donald and 4chan for memes.

      If I were the parent of the kid CNN went after, you’d be smelling burning flesh from here to Papua New Guinea.

      Oh, lookie here, Ted Cruz is on it, Boss!

      Gee, I hope CNN’s lawyers checked this first, cuz there’s this crime called ‘theft by extortion’ e.g., threatening to deseminate any information tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, ridicule

      CNN can’t commit suicide fast enough apparently.

      CNN misquotes Lincoln and mis-attributes a quote to Ben Franklin all on one day.


    5. 5 | July 5, 2017 3:47 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      Of course, the LEFT is falling all over each other trying to defend CNN’s actions, saying that website of the offending individual is full of anti-Semitic remarks and posts.

      Meanwhile, James O’Keefe has unleashed yet another Project Veritas video.

      Wonder if AT&T is going to do some serious housecleaning if that merger goes through.


    6. 6 | July 5, 2017 3:56 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      They may also have violated New York Law, specifically § 135.60 of the New York criminal code :

      And the BIG Daddy – 18 U.S. Code § 241

      If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;…

      They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

      Might be a bit of a stretch but sure would be fun watchin’ ’em squirm.

      If I were AT&T, I’d be re-thinking that merger.

      I heard on the radio that the author of the CNN piece is denying the creator of the .gif is a 15 yr old, saying he’s a middle aged man.

      which changes nothing, except that the ass hole caved. I would have had CNN flayed and BBQ’d on the innernut before breakfast.

      Oh Sweet Mother of God

      NYT

      Correction: July 4, 2017

      Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article attributed incorrectly a Twitter statement to the North Korean government. The North Korean government did not belittle a joint American-South Korean military exercise as “demonstrating near total ignorance of ballistic science,” that statement was from the DPRK News Service, a parody Twitter account.


    9. 9 | July 5, 2017 5:20 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      Everyone on Twitter with two functioning brain cells knows that the DPRK News Service is a parody account. EVERYONE. Maybe the NYT shouldn’t have fired those editors. But then again, all sorts of blue check marks fall for the “Sean Spicier” account on Twitter as well. But DPRK is so over the top in its tweets, you’d think the first thing people would do is look at the bio.

      Oh, and I cracked up that NYT was had a big story about “for July 4th it’s important to talk about the Constitution!” Uh, no asshats. There’s a really really important document associated with July 4th. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Something about……a creator and unalienable rights. And a cool musical with William Daniels.


    10. 10 | July 5, 2017 5:26 pm

      Watching people trip over themselves on the LEFT trying to defend CNN, and how they had every right to go after the guy.

      It was satire, it was parody, it was making fun of you. And it most certainly IS protected speech. I suggest you ask your Legal Department to read the opinion in Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46.

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:

      I don’t think they have any idea of what they’ve just done. Even I am not dumb enough to piss off people at 4chan. They are, after all, the ones who crowd sourced finding that stupid actor with the performance art thing that had to be continually moved. I mean those people used satellite images, shadow analysis, you name it – and found him. If I were Brian Stelter and crew, I’d be signing up for that volunteer mission to Mars. ‘Doxxed’ is going to take on a whole new meaning. As in ‘unable to find complete body parts’.


    12. 12 | July 5, 2017 6:17 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      And for what? Because someone MADE FUN of them? And they’ve had the temerity to call TRUMP thin-skinned. Oh, and apparently unlike first reports that it was a 15-year-old, it is apparently a 48-year-old. Meanwhile, Don Jr. tweeted early today mentioning that he was 15, and Andy Jr. Jackboot is all about “HE’S LYING! LOOK! HE’S LYING.”

      Simmer down, Diaper boy. It’s nothing compared to the BS you’ve been peddling since 11/8/16 (and before!).

      Yes he is. They can’t get to him. Joe and Mika were all over the place after the facelift tweet telling us how upset they were. Must’ve been a real come down for them Monday morning to find out that not only were they no longer the story, the dogs had barked and the caravan and moved on. In fact, it’ll be fun to see what the Attention Whores do to try to get back in the spotlight.

      Did that dumbass Jim Acosta just give out his address on his effing Twitter account? Normally, I’m in favor of a man’s home being his castle but in this case, frankly, since Alex Jr. Jackboot doesn’t have a belief in anyone else’s privacy, I really don’t have a problem with Alex not being able to get anywhere near his New York digs because – PROTEST.

      I wonder if AT&T is looking at all this and going …. aw hey-ll no. We start our own news channel. The mythical infinite monkeys could do better than these clowns.

      Gen-X helps save America because we are unimpressed and bored cynics, unbelievable.

      ROTFLMAO… No, not unbelievable at all. My remaining brother is the same age as you cold. I’ve been watching the way he raises his kids for quiet some time now. He spoils the hell out of them. However, what he is not, is an absentee father.

      Like you, he spends as much quality time with his kids as he can. He doesn’t give a rats moldy ass about politics, he is utterly disgusted by it. He and every other parent his age that I know put their family first.

      Yes, cynical, ignored, pragmatic, independent, apathetic, disaffected and unfocused towards things that previous generations thought were important. But excited, engaged, active, passionate towards their kids and their own communities.

      You want to impress them… DO something. Their not interested in talking about doing things, their not impressed with bragging, they (YOU and my brother) are impressed with action.

      Yes, my brother’s kids look up to him more than any celebrity, because he does stuff, real right there with them in their faces stuff. They have hiked Mount Whitney and Mount Saint Helen’s. They’ve been surfing, motorcycling riding in the desert camping in the mountains all in the same day.

      Like your princesses he is their hero, because regardless of the amount of money he spends to spoil them, he gives them his time and a lot of it. This is both how and why Gen X is saving America.

      They are not doing it on purpose, its an accidental side effect of what is important in their lives. What is important in their lives, in your life, in my brother’s life, is his family, his kids, they come first. He does not helicopter them, he let’s them take risks and get hurt to some degree, but he’s always right there for them, to pick them up when they fall, and they know it. They know he will let them fall but not far or to hard, just enough so that they know what they are doing is real.

      They do not get participation trophies, any trophy they get, they actually earn and because they know they have to earn it if they want it, those prizes and trophies have value to them. Generation X did not set out to save America, they thought America was beyond saving. Saving America came along because they care about their kids, their families, their friends and their close communities. They are saving America by accident. And its a glorious and wonderful thing to watch.

      I know a lot about civil lawsuits! I am a self taught expert.

      What the person that made the video should do is sue CNN for something, anything… and represent himself Pro Se.

      Will probably cost him a couple of hundred bucks to file. Then CNN will have to spend thousands on lawyers to defend themselves. He can drag it on for YEARS!!!!

      Costs him nothing, costs CNN thousands.

      If CNN eventually wins they can recover their lawyer costs from him, but so what? If he is like most Americans even if CNN file a Writ of Execution and get the Sheriff / Constables (depending on the state) to seize his property to auction it to pay off the judgement he is allowed to keep one vehicle, his primary residence, up to $30,000 personal belongings (Not more than 25% can be jewelry) If he lives in an urban area one acre of land, If he is in a rural area 100 acres. Livestock and their food, and his primary income source etc.. (also depending on the state he lives in)

      I wish I was 37 and in his position. LOL.

      CNN tracked down the Redditor and appeared to threaten to expose him if he didn’t apologize and promise to refrain from posting any more offensive content. (RELATED: ‘Extremely Unethical’ — CNN Draws Backlash After Threatening To ID Reddit User Behind Trump’s WWE Video)

      Bad News: Steve Scalise Admitted Back Into Intensive Care

      House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., has been readmitted to the intensive care unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and is listed in “serious” condition after concerns emerged about possible infection as he continues recovery from a gunshot during practice for the Congressional Baseball Game on June 14.

      “Congressman Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the Intensive Care Unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center due to new concerns for infection,” the hospital said in a statement late Wednesday night. “His condition is listed as serious.”

      Scalise had been upgraded to fair condition following several surgeries on June 21.

      MedStar Washington Hospital Center added it would provide another update on Thursday.

      79-year-old Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball is the defendant in the libel trial and is expected to tell his attorneys to “trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud”.

      This will surprise absolutely nobody

      Pro-open borders activists, George and Amal Clooney, are planning to leave the UK because they ‘are afraid of terror attacks’.

      The celebrity power couple have used their fame and fortune to push for open borders and even sat down with Angela Merkel herself to express their support for her refugee policy.

      But now it seems, like all luvvies, they don’t actually mean they support it for themselves, so will be moving back to LA because George doesn’t “feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside,” following the attacks in London and Manchester – neither of which are in the countryside.

      I hear Gorgeous George has given some thought to running for office.

      A Very Special Breaking News Announcement For Coldwarrior.

      Breaking: Fatal Courtroom Act Ruins Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann

      Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

      The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that climate scare stories are a “hoax.”

      confirming what we already knew, Brett Stephens whines that the problem with ‘idiot’ Trump people is that we don’t kiss his superior ass.

      Stephens whined that conservatives “demonize” and do not “admire” elites who are “educated” and care about things like “culture” and the “cultivation of the human soul.

      I hope if AT&T buys this trainwreck that part of the takeover terms are that there is no carryover in the contracts. And then fire these jerks and start hiring. Get GOOD, actual newscasters from major markets. Steal the good ones from Fox if you can – the Murdoch spawn are iceberging the network anyway. Steal Gutfeld. Steal Carlson.

      @ doriangrey:

      Mann sued Mark Steyn/National Review for libel as well, and I don’t ‘think that’s progressed to trial, in fact I wonder if they are still in discovery.

      Is Mann a complete idiot? I am completely unfamiliar with British (Canadian) civil procedure rules, but I imagine that there is some period for discovery and production of documents by both sides. (You never see this is courtroom movies – written discovery is the least sexy part of practice but suprisingly, the most important). How did Mann think he was ever going to proceed with a lawsuit when you refuse to produce documents to either the court or the other side.

      If Mann tried to do this in a California Court, two things could happen – defense would file a motion for summary judgment and say that without the documents, Mann cannot prove there is any libel, or if no Summary Judgment motion filed, the defense can ask that Mann not be allowed to put on a prosecution due to discovery abuse.

      Mann’s effed…as he should be.

      And every once in awhile, you’ll hear of an overturned verdict because the prosecution didn’t turn over exculpatory evidence to the defense, as is supposed to happen during the discovery process. Unfortunately you rarely hear of a prosecutor losing his license for deliberately sending innocent people to jail to he can run for high(er) political office.

      The Polish crowd attending President Trump’s speech in Warsaw repeatedly interrupted his remarks with chants of “Donald Trump!” and “USA! USA!”

      At a wreath-laying ceremony in Krasinski Square, the excited crowd broke out into an American-style, “USA! USA! USA!” chant.

      Later, during Trump’s prepared remarks, the crowd repeatedly interrupted the speech with a “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!” chant.

      “The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken and who have never ever forgotten who they are,” Trump said in Warsaw, before the crowd began chanting his name.

      “Thank you so much, thank you,” he replied. “Thank you so much. A great honor.”

But when she throws out stuff like SCOTUS is going to send its Marshals to arrest Trump so he can be impeached, that’s not HER insanity, that’s playing to the suckers who are giving her money.

      I’ll post links of you want, but it gets tedious. You might also want to look at a guy named Claude Taylor who seems to have struck up a partnership with her and hangs out with Rick Wilson.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I’d have to re-read the decision but from what I remember, you’re on the money. I find it appalling that somehow the news media members somehow justify the behavior of CNN on the grounds that the individual had apparently posted some pretty bigoted sh*t at his site and therefore outing him was okay.

      A gif of Trump knocking CNN around has appeared in several forms for months. CNN claims that Trump’s retweeting is “asking for harm to befall journalists.” This, I guess is their rationalization for extorting an apology from the maker (but as it turns out, the video Trump retweeted is different in all sorts of ways – sound, logo, etc., so they may not even have threatened the right guy).

      In response, folks started posting similar gifs of Trump beating up the CNN Logo. Okay, if Trump retweets these, is it then permissible for CNN to try to find the makers of these .gifs and threaten them with outing their information? What if they haven’t posting so-called “racist” sh*t? How are the people stating that people with THIS point of view have no expectation of respect of their privacy and the people with THIS point of view do?

      The 4th and 5th amendments to the US Constitution are the only necessary justifications for said individuals right to privacy. Yes, the 4th and 5th do apply, because even though the individual in question might not be a US Citizen, CNN IS a US Corporation and as such bound by US law on privacy matters.

      It is incredibly important to make perfectly crystal clear, that the existence of an unalienable right is absolutely the only justification ever required to exercise that unalienable right. Moreover, it is the only justification ever required to prosecute any individual bound by US Law for violating said unalienable right.

      De Blasio races to Germany to protest G20 summit

      The day after a cop was assassinated in The Bronx, de Blasio skipped an afternoon swearing-in ceremony for 524 new NYPD recruits ahead of his flight overseas.

      A last-minute advisory from City Hall said Hizzoner “will attend several events surrounding the G20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”

      Organizers of that demonstration — “Hamburg Shows Attitude,” in English — say 10,000 people have registered to oppose G20 participants including Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdgoan.

      “All stand for an attitude that we find unacceptable and do not want to accept,” Lutheran Bishop Kirsten Fehrs has said.

      City Council members said they were unaware of de Blasio’s plan to abandon the Big Apple to push his progressive agenda in Europe.

      Hamburg (AFP) – Demonstrations turned violent late Thursday ahead of a tricky first G20 summit for US President Donald Trump, as German police clashed with a hard core of masked anti-capitalist activists hurling bottles and stones.

      What should have been a peaceful march by around 12,000 people in Hamburg protesting against globalisation was halted as police used water cannon and tear gas to disperse around 1,000 far-left militants.

      they started torching the buildings, in comes the riot police.

      As the blazing Canaanite building collapsed, an adult and a child were buried under ash and mud-brick debris, and would only be found by Israeli archaeologists 3,200 years later.

      in the 13th century B.C.E., Gezer met with a violent end, and was reduced to a heap of smoking ruins at the hands of the Egyptian pharaoh Merneptah.

      Broken storage jar destroyed in the fiery collapse of Gezer 3,200 years ago. Tandy Institute for Archaeology

      Auckland gave a homecoming parade through Auckland yesterday for Team NZ and the America’s cup. 80,000 intrepid souls braved cold and torrential rain with thunder and lightning to welcome the Auld Mug back to NZ. The city was totally inundated with water … and fans.

      Talk about inundation. 40,000 British Lions fans have defended on Auckland for Saturday night’s third and deciding test against the All Blacks. The red army is everywhere in this tow. Ran into one bunch looking for Alexandra Park where they have been invited to park up their camper vans. Great bunch. Looking forward with them for a great Test Match. Hope that the weather gods co-operate. Forecast is for rain, lightning and thunder.

      What a pathetic little shit Trudeau is. Not only does he pay off the Khadr murderer, he did it in such a way that Speer’s widow would get nothing from the settlement.

      The payment halts efforts by lawyers for the widow of a U.S. Delta Force sergeant and a retired U.S. special forces soldier from seeking an emergency injunction to stop Ottawa from giving the multimillion-dollar settlement to Mr. Khadr and his lawyers.

      “The injunction is moot. It is absolutely moot,” University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran told The Globe. “Plus, if they are smart, that money is not sitting in Omar Khadr’s name, it is sitting in a trust fund or it is sitting in a corporation or some other structure, and good luck in enforcing against that.”

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiuCwlf2CXw

      At least Sunny Bill Williams the token Muslim got a 4 match ban for a shoulder charge into a Lion’s face. Trouble was that the All Blacks were forced to play 3/4 of the rest of the match with 14 men against the Lion’s 15. It was a scrappy affaire with a slippery bark and errors aplenty.

      Hope that the wet weather takes a hike for Saturday night at Eden Park in Auckland. The Lions are a bit worried that the All Blacks will be fed raw meat all week and will be looking for a big total tomorrow night. We can only hope!

      Yes, absolutely.

      Cable News Network is an American basic cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner. CNN was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner as a 24-hour cable news channel.

      If your corporation if formed under US Corporate laws, then, yes, you are bound by US Laws. Each state in the US has its own corporate legal structure, though, truth be told they are pretty uniform except for the tax structures.

      Delaware and Nevada have the lowest tax rates and least stringent requirements regarding both corporate officers, minutes filing and annual going concern filings.

      But because corporations are legally defined as entities, they are afforded the same legal protections as individuals, and likewise under the same legal restrictions as individuals.

      In a legal sense, the best way to think of a corporation, is as an individual person. They have nearly all of the same rights a person has, but they also have nearly all of the same legal obligations as a person.

      This is where the the dirth of class action lawsuits originates. About 100 years ago people started realizing/understanding that because corporations were legally defined as entities or “Artificial Persons” they can be held accountable for their actions almost just like a real person.

      What it basically comes down to, is that a US Corporation cannot do anything that a individual US Citizen legally cannot do. If it does, then it is subject to prosecution just like a individual citizen would be.

      So when multiple employees of CNN engaged in collaborative cooperative behavior that violated US Constitutional Law it wasn’t just themselves who were placed in potential jeopardy of prosecution, it was literally the corporate entity CNN that was placed in potential jeopardy of prosecution. Its even entirely possible that none of CNN’s employees could face prosecution while CNN itself does.

      Please try to understand the weight of this image. This soldier lost both arms. The feeling of a handshake is now lost to him.

      Trump realized this, and so touched his face, so he can feel the human connection. This is what I see when I think of Trump’s motives. He gave up a billionaire lifestyle to now be insulted, dragged through the mud, and lied about, on a daily basis.

      All to save this country and people he loves.
