Your first point is largely true - but people certainly mature faster when they take on responsibility. I'm not suggesting we go back to child labor, but if you want them more mature at a younger age, ramping up responsibility matters.
People mature faster physically now largely due to improved diet. I can get you sources,if you would like them.
I am being honest, and I recognize what you're bringing up, here -though I'd really suggest that even in today's society, most 16 year olds are vastly more adult than child.
It wasn't all that long ago that beer brewing in Texas belonged to Shiner...and Pabst, I suppose...but it's wide-open now, and there are so many excellent breweries that I've lost track. Probably my favorite at this time is Real Ale - they brew a number of my favorites - Black Quad and Real Heavy stand out - but Revolver is amazing with their Blood and Honey as is Lakewood with the Temptress. The Kraken has to be the best I've ever had, but finding it borders on insane, and it doesn't come cheap!
I drink a stupid number of coffee drinks, from black to latte, with a preference for iced. I love good beer, my favorites being good barleywines and Belgian quads. I love Cape Cods and Long Island Iced Teas as far as mixed drinks go, and I'm insanely partial to amaretto.
Yes, I definitely would - but it's a complicated thing. Emotions are unpredictable things, and the future is a lot like juggling, when you're learning - it's amazing how little things can become magnified, and it all fails. I'd make sure not to go into it with blinders on, but it's got beautiful possibilities.
I hope it works out well, whatever you decide.
I really don't care.
If there was something there, I wouldn't shed a single tear as they cuffed her- but I didn't expect a damn thing. Is she a criminal? Likely. Are the republicans barking up the wrong tree? As always. What she's actually guilty of, they do on a daily basis - it's called selling out the nation.
The longer you treat them as kids, the longer they'll act like kids. When we changed the drinking age to 21, what happened?
When we assumed most were adults after puberty, they got jobs and led responsible (more or less) lives as young teens. Physically, people mature younger, now, but emotional and mental maturity is stunted because the societal message is that they're children.
This is how snowflakes get created.
Bernie Sanders' record speaks for itself. He has fought for the people all of his career, starting in college, when he fought segregation. He marched with MLK. He's been an effective senator, even through republican senates and administrations, and has stood out as the single most popular politician for years now.
Trump has surely scammed an astounding number of people, if you're the sort of person that would call that leadership.
