And wasn't the clarion call of the 60ties this phrase from JFK's inauguration speech:

"...Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

So Doctor "Strangelove" Dean dashes hither and yon promising more "what can our government do for you?" programs. This sixties speech - contractdicting his policy statements - is more grasping at straws by a man who is in over his head.

But to help him return to his good ol' days, lets all hold hands and sing together: "Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya. Kumbaya..." :o)

Go to the Dean site (have a barf bag handy) and scroll down the front page to the pink shaded area (gee, I wonder why that color?) on the right side of the page, for the "Featured Dean Team Leader".

Right now it's "Mrs. Selena Paulsen". :)

He can try to summon the Spirit of the 60s, but it'll be awhile before it responds. First, it has to get the energy to actually get up off it's but and get off the commune, and if it can stop smoking weed long enough to actually find the highway, then it has to hitchhike to wherever Dean is...

Could be problematic..

I do not relish the day when these baby-boomer, '60s rejects start to retire and demand more and more services because they were irresponsible with their lives and money.

I hope we can use Dr. Deanmento to finish these whackos off, once and for all time!

Heck... I grew up in the 80's. I want to bring the spirit of the '80s back. Seemed like a lot more productive time...

Not only is Dean living in the past, he seems to have completely forgotten September 11, 2001 - the day the world changed forever. America has two major problems, to my way of thinking and they are terrorists and illegal immigrants. Dean never comments on these issues, nor do the rest of the Dem candidates. President Bush is very strong on terrorism, but I really do not understand why he won't crack down on illegals and this really bothers me.

Oh yeah, I really can't wait until the future when the baby boomers are retired and they start demanding that Viagra be added to that wonderful prescription drug benefit they are going to get that we will be paying for.

I hope we can use Dr. Deanmento to finish these whackos off, once and for all time!

Wishful Thinking. The boomers aren't through by a long shot. Unfortunately we are stuck with the me, me, me selfish baby boomers in power at the heads of our government (and Law firms)for at least another 10-20 years, Then it will probably take another 20 years to clean up the mess that the worst good for nothing generation in US history has made

I'm a Gen X-er, and I will be sooo glad when the baby boomers are done with politics. They all want to refight the '60s. The left wants to bring those years back, the right wants to pretend they never happened.

You are right on about the liberal baby boomers who have been trying to break America over its knee since the 60s. They have been the most divisive force in this country since the civil war and you are right that only time will heal the massive wounds they have been dealing the country for decades.

I am also thankful for the other half of baby boomers that held some good American values in the face of all this througout the years.

Sadly, one does not have to go further than FreeRepublic to find "conservatives" who believe themselves "entitled" to all manner of government largesse at your tax dollar expense. They "earned" it doncha know. Never mind that they elected the government that squandered the tax dollars spent...

Painting with an overly broad brush here, but even the Boomer Freepers tend to have the entitlement mentality. You can see evidence of it throughout many threads on this forum. The younger generations will have the Boomers sucking the life blood out of them no matter who is in power. It is sickening that there is an entire generation of such pathetic creatures in America. I feel for Boomers who's good reputation is tarnished by their birthdate, because they are in the minority.

Heh. Same here; I enjoyed the 80s actually. Way better than the 70s, but perhaps that is merely generational myopia.

Expect Dean campaign to buy below vehicle for campaigning. Will paint in "IRAQ," where it now says "VIETNAM."

Is Dean having an acid-induced flashback?

See my post above. What do you think?

Did Howard Dean take the brown acid at Woodstock? He shouldn't have. BUMMER!

As I recall the brown acid was said to be not very good but it was his own trip.

Every time A.NS.W.E.R. aka WWP comes to town we see these Woodstock burnouts in the street.

I remember the 60's, a poor deranged girl set herself on fire at Westchester State Teacher's College in sympathy with the Buddist monk's in Vietnam. H. Rap Brown convinced some citizens of Cambridge, MD to set their homes on fire. Washington, DC was set on fire. "Burn baby burn" became the watchword of the 60's.


Oh yeah, that Black Supreme Court Justice did not agree with Dr. King's methods for achieving civil rights. It isn't talked about widely but the radical left had moved from banning the bomb in the 50's to the civil rights and anti war movement in the 60's. Refer to "Commies" by little red school house graduate Ronald Radosh.
