    you made a blanket statement that all boomers are "on the left", and I work with some of the most awful people (recently got into a real battle with one who has openly admitted to drug experimentation, protesting Vietnam, etc.) that are the people who vote en mass for the republican party ticket. Why? Well part of it is the dream I believe they were sold (trickle down economics) and part of it is my favorite subject: RACE! (welfare queens and illegals stealing all my stuff). I was just positing my experience with it first hand. Every Day. And my original point was also to show that some of the best "lefties" of the Boomer Gen, turned hard right after they had to grow up, which was a while ago... Ted Nugent anyone?

      Fine--you hate Boomers who are Republicans!

      I don't hate anyone, but I'll agree that they are misguided.

      I'm sorry that you've had such negative experiences.  

      Good luck!

        and gee you throw generalizations and absolutes around a lot for a liberal... Puzzling... I read a pie fight between you and another individual (they were wrong, you were right) where lost of folks here came to your rescue. You don't need to tell me about entitlement reform, and how it hurts people in your age group because my mom is living it every day. You also should not shunt the points that I've made in disagreement to blanket statements you've made aside as if I were too stupid to understand what your point was. I never once disagreed with your overall point. Just the statement that all boomers are moving left, which is false. The reason republicans are still being elected is because of baby boomers. Sorry if that doesn't sit well with you, but it is the truth...
