Guess my point here was that there are thousands of teenagers like my grandson and "instant" grandson that nobody ever hears about. We just are fed the news items about the loonies.  :)

Big +1. There is no classification of people out there that are all bad or all good. This is especially true of classifications that people are a part of through no doing of there own. Your race, gender, age, etc... they do not automatically confer wisdom, stupidity, benevolence, malice or any such things.  The political party one cheers for doesnít automatically do any of that either, even more so if one it to just blindly root for one as if it was the home town baseball team... with no concept whatsoever what they they are actually cheering for.

People ought to be judged on their thoughts, actions based on their thoughts (even more than thoughts alone), their compassion towards others, tolerance of other peopleís views and conviction to stand up for their own.

We just happen to be hearing about all the loony youngsters right now b/c the majority of folks who have the power to amplify their voices agree with the loony ones. But thatís true of the loony 30/40/50/60/70/80/90 year olds right now too.

Just a shame we donít focus on the upstanding young people like your grandsons.

Congratulations on your grandson, he looks very professional and squared away.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Good show! It is good to see some of the youth of this country stand up for it. You have every right to be proud, actually, very proud.
