    Generation and the pre-boomers that followed them that remained silent during the communist witch-hunts and McCarthy era, invested in nuclear bomb stockpiles sufficient to blow the world up thousands of times over, that chose Nixon or Wallace over HHH in 1968, that re-elected tricky Dick in 1972, that were Reagan Democrats in 1980?  Not saying Boomers have distinguished themselves in changing the dynamics of war, peace and equality in this country or the world, but why the fuck do we get all the blame for that which we didn't create in the first place (including the social demand that we be created) and generations after us haven't changed either.

    •  I don't blame us... (0+ / 0-)

      for what we didn't create.  I blame us for what we are doing now and have been doing since we became the generation that now runs Government, Corporations, and Academia. How long do we get to blame our parents for our decisions? In my opinion that time is now long past.  

      Now whoa whoa whoa right there spinach chin!
