A Nashville school district became the latest education system to sue several social media companies over growing mental health concerns among students, joining more than 40 nationwide districts demanding accountability from big tech. The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) reportedly filed a lawsuit against Meta, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, Google, WhatsApp, and YouTube due to the “damages and growing mental health crisis among students.”

Good! That said, can parents not do anything to keep their kids off social media, like not buying them a cell phone, use internet usage monitoring software, heck just keep the computer in the family room, no computers or TVs in kids rooms? One nit pick: Clarksville-Montgomery County School System is not a Nashville (Davidson County) school district. Clarksville, TN is about an hour NW of Nashville proper.

It’s too bad you can’t sue the parents.

It's kind of like suing the gun companies. It IS up to parents to keep their kids safe. Social Media does have the potential to be addicting for everyone. Parents, like Congress, have the power of the purse. If you want your kids to have a phone give them a phone without a data package. I see little children with thousand dollar iPhones. That's nuts in itself. Get 2 modems for your Wifi, one for the TV stream and other household and parental devices, and one for the kid devices. Then, turn it off at bedtime especially, and, any time necessary according to your house rules. This plan, after a brief "withdrawal" period, it worked very well for us. Just commit the wifi passwords to memory.

I would wager that more school districts are directly responsible for mental problems in children, teaching them that they are racist, privileged or born with the wrong set of genitals. What is social media but information from other people used to influence children with extreme leftist propaganda. Big Tech merely supplies the platform except when they actively filter out the truth that counters the leftist BS. Yes, it ultimately is up to the parents who should not let a cell phone or a computer assume babysitting duties.

Parents need to start looking at another real culprit. Marijuana is known to basically destroy short term memory in young developing brains and our children are being sold this debilitating drug as a harmless drug with no side effects. Think about the teens who are having these psychotic episodes. Time to tell the truth about this dangerous drug that the politicians want to make a windfall profit on. They are pushing this poison to your children and adults are treatig it as if it were aspirin. It is far from that. Look around you and you will see the lives that it has and still is ruining. Combine that with the social media and you have a toxic cocktail of despair that cannot lead to a good place for your child's future.

So pass the buck. How about looking in the mirror and admitting that the bulls#@! that you hand out as "education," is a big part of the "mental health" crisis?

My two grandsons received their first cell phones at 18 and 19. My daughter said they usually forgot to take them when they went out. My son-in-law monitored them when they were on the computer. The whole family learned to speak Italian when the boys were little They were mostly homeschooled and didn’t grow up with tv. The oldest starting learning online to speak Japanese at age 4 They are smart, delightful, funny, ambitious young men. They cook, clean and do the family laundry. They’re not perfect but they’re a pleasure to be with. Praise God !

Social media is not responsible. Unfortunately it is where kids go for information on the things that they hear in school and on TV. The constant push of the LGBTQ/Trans agenda, push for equity, diversity, inclusion, and constant droning on about racism and White Supremacists gets confusing and depressing. Kids turn to Social media which then feeds on stereo types depending on where they look. No wonder they are messed up. Parents, schools, government "leaders", and other so called influences have made them that way.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been quietly let go from her Warner Bros TV deal after producing no content. Cullors, 39, signed the deal with the media giant in 2020 to much fanfare but it ended in secret in October 2022, it emerged on Friday. 'The deal, unfortunately, did not result in any produced shows,' a source told the New York Post. Cullors claimed in January 2022 that she was working on a documentary about how reparations were similar to the idea of landback, where Native Americans got back their lands, and another about black social mobility.

President Joe Biden falsely stated he has four granddaughters on Friday, leaving off his fifth, 4-year-old Navy Joan Roberts, the illegitimate daughter of Hunter Biden. The president has repeatedly failed and refused to recognize Navy Joan as part of the Biden family, despite a court-ordered paternity test proving Hunter to be the child’s father in 2019. The latest lapse happened during comments the president made while hosting the 2023 Louisiana State University women’s national championship basketball team at the White House.

Nearly all House Democrats, along with eight House Republicans, helped tank an effort to override President Joe Biden’s veto of a bipartisan plan that would have restored United States tariffs on China-made solar panels. In June 2022, Biden announced a 24-month tariff moratorium on solar panel imports from Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Commerce Department officials suspect that the solar panels are actually made in China but have been routed through the four southeast Asian nations to avoid U.S. tariffs on China-made solar panels.

Durham was tasked with investigating Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI’s 2016 investigation into Trump-Russia collusion, and other related activities, in May of 2019. Former Attorney General Bill Barr gave Durham special counsel status in December of 2020 to protect the investigation as the White House changed hands from former President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden.

Lansing — Michigan could become the third state to ban the declawing of cats under a bill introduced Thursday in the state Legislature. House Bill 4674, sponsored by Rep. Jimmie Wilson, Jr., D-Ypsilanti, would ban the common practice except for "therapeutic" purposes, which would not include protecting against damaged household furniture or other scratches. New York and Maryland have already banned cat declawing as cruel and unnecessary, said Leaha Skylar Dotson, Wilson's legislative and policy director. "There's a lot of misconception that we're just trimming off the nail," Dotson said.

Good. The beer industry isn’t celebrating the victory of conservatives over Bud Light. They are peeing in their pants like a drunk who waited too long to go to the men’s room. Nice image, right?

The late British author Beatrix Potter is being accused of stealing the stories for her Peter Rabbit books from slaves in America, with a woke literature professor saying Potter is guilty of the “appropriation” of black culture. In a recent essay, Emily Zobel Marshall, who teaches postcolonial literature at Leeds Beckett university in England, claimed Beatrix Potter ripped off the oral “Br’er Rabbit” folk tales told by slaves working on southern plantations. In addition, she accuses Potter of deliberately hiding the “sources” of her literary inspiration. [Tweet]

Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism, according to a new study published to the peer-reviewed journal Current Psychology. “Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism,” the authors wrote. (snip) “In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.” The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.

Since then, there has been no call nor reason to regulate these items. Many farmers and ranchers tend to many of their animals’ veterinary needs,

On Thursday, a reporter caught up with the septuagenarian, who promptly spilled the beans that he would not care whatsoever if Ukraine invaded Russia, let alone if they did so with U.S.-supplied weapons. “Are you concerned that they will enter into Russian territory?” The Epoch Times’ Liam Cosgrove said of Ukraine. “I’m not concerned. I wouldn’t care if they did,” Nadler said. After the reporter explained that Russia could view this as a U.S.-backed invasion of Russia, the congressman was dismissive and even smirked about the intensification of the war.

Children of certain ages who received Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine face an elevated risk of heart inflammation, according to a new federally funded study. Vaccinated children aged 12 to 17 face a heightened risk of myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, and a related condition called pericarditis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) researchers found. The number of myocarditis and pericarditis events in that age group met the threshold for a safety signal, the researchers reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association on May 22.
