"Now HALF of families text each other in the same house"

Dailymail.com: Experts say tech craze could have a 'catastrophic' effect on family life

It’s not the only way mobiles get in the way of family time at home.

In a third of households, people use their mobiles during their mealtimes.

More than four in ten parents complain their children have ignored them at the table because they were so distracted by their phones. In fact, tablets and mobiles are so prevalent at home, they are also depriving us of rest.

A quarter of the 2,800 adults surveyed by Aviva admitted at least one person in their household was losing sleep because they were staying up too late on their phone, and one in five said that there was someone at home who just couldn’t ‘switch off’.

If by catastrophic, you mean less yelling to find out what the kids/parents are doing; then ok. Personally, I find it more enjoyable than what I recall as a kid.

Whatever became of the "religious right," anyway?

Any of them still around?

Kids can never be too inarticulate.

You think Trump texts Barron?

Most common in-house text was, "Honey, can you bring me some toilet paper."

The religious right has been drowned out by the religious left. In response, the religious right went for Trump who has been texting things like this.

The religious right is in hiding. They voted. Overwhelmingly for Trump. But they are not in the arena anymore. It is too dangerous for them. Their families. Their businesses.

The woman who had the flower shop and didn't want to do the arrangements for a gay wedding lost 9-0 in the State Supreme Court. She is appealing to the Supreme Court and is spending a boatload of money. She is getting some help but still her business and life were destroyed.

By the same people who refuse to work with the Trumps. You know the designers who refuse to sell Melania or Ivanka a dress. Or refuse to carry Ivanka's clothing line. Who refuse to serve Trump voters. You know those tolerant people.
