---------- Forwarded message ----------From: utahtroutCapitalism has been the most dynamic force for economic progress in history. Over the past century, it has delivered billions of people out of miserable poverty, raised living standards to once-unimaginable heights and enabled an unprecedented flourishing of productive creativity. But among young Americans, it finds itself on trial.The University of Chicago's GenForward Survey of Americans age 18 to 34 finds that 62 percent think "we need a strong government to handle today's complex economic problems," with just 35 percent saying "the free market can handle these problems without government being involved."Overall, 49 percent in this group hold a favorable opinion of capitalism — and 45 percent have a positive view of socialism. Socialism gets higher marks than capitalism, though, from Hispanics, Asian-Americans and African-Americans. Sixty-one percent of Democrats take a positive view of socialism — and so do 25 percent of Republicans.
Contrast the millennials' opinions with those of their parents. A survey last year found that only 26 percent of baby boomers would prefer to live in a socialist country. Among young people, the figure was 44 percent.

Trump lashed out at his Cabinet, and Nielsen in particular, when told that the number of people arrested for illegally crossing the Mexico border topped 50,000 for the second consecutive month. The blowup lasted more than 30 minutes, according to a person with knowledge of what transpired, as Trump's face reddened and he raised his voice, saying Nielsen needed to "close down" the border.
"Why don't you have solutions? How is this still happening?" he said, adding later, "We need to shut it down. We're closed."
Trump's tirade went on so long that many present began fidgeting in their seats and flashing grimaces,
"The president is committed to fixing our broken immigration system and our porous borders. We are a country of laws and the president and his administration will enforce them," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Thursday.
Nielsen, in a statement on Thursday, said she shared Trump's frustration that "existing loopholes and the lack of Congressional action have prevented this administration from fully securing the border and protecting the American people."
You have both houses of Congress. The Whitehouse should write a bill that closes the loopholes and fibres the authority... now!
