Allie Anderson: Millennials Most ‘Connected’ But Lonely Generation

Millennials. It seems the very mention of the word draws equally passionate and polarized responses from people of all ages.

Dr. Beisner shares his expertise on green energy, climate change, and solar dependency on fossil fuels, as well as what happened in Texas recently with sub-zero temps and power failures. David later outlines to evil of the Democrat’s so-called “Equality Act,” which just passed in the U.S. House.
