Now that the boomers are approaching late middle age, they are becoming increasingly exasperated that the fruits of their great reorganization of society are not popular. There is no great uprising against the family, neither has the welfare state caught on, troops coming back from Iraq are not spat upon, neither does gay marriage have any popular support.
It must be frustrating for those who so much wanted to save the world to be looked upon by the world as a bunch of minority odd balls. Africans view abortion as genocide, Asians support the traditional family even more now than in past days if that is possible. True the third world and also the second resents US economic and military strength but this is to be expected. In ancient times there was anti-Greek propaganda where manuscripts were tampered with in order to portray them and their leaders as homosexual. Europe was depicted by third world countries as having become great due to the cheap purchase or theft of its oil minerals and farm produce. (Where are minerals and oil coming from now?)
The tragedy of the baby boomers is just that: they are a generation who elected politicians who passed laws congenial to college students. After all, when 75% of the voting population is under 30 years of age what can you expect.
As the baby boomers come to realize that their lives are built upon a fraud they become more and more embittered seeking to strike out at what they envision as an underhanded conspiracy to deny the world the fruits of the revolution a la The Beatles, Woodstock, et al. Bill Clinton came to power on the Gays in the military platform in order to embarrass those who support the military (mainly Republicans). Water Gate was an ideal platform for those angry with Nixon for getting elected with a landslide victory on a platform against: pot, abortion and the confiscation of wealth (non media wealth) to get even. There is no anti-revolutionary conspiracy. The normal workings of nature is the problem for the baby boomers. Systems put in place over a period of 3000 years temporally over thrown by the young will be subject to the laws of nature which always corrects an imbalance of force.

Something earned is more valuable than something given.
You do not get it & I doubt you will, because like a lefty intellectual, you think you know, when you obviously don't.
Yep on everything in your post. Nothing like having depression babies in power to set up a mess that is sure to fall apart, well after they are gone.
Who were all of these nasty, activist 28 year old legislators & how did they get so powerful, while they were first term, junior members of Congress?
Bingo! And I'm proud to say our contribution to the next generation are growing/have grown up conservative!!!
This Gen X/Y-baby-boomer-whining-stuff is such BS. I'm sick of it.
Tell you what, Gen X/Yers - you think you have all the answers? Print this entire thread out and put it in a safe place for the next 30 - 40 years. Then pull it out and read it again. If you are as wonderful as you believe yourselves to be, you will be embarrassed at the crap you wrote here.
By that time, your children will be telling you how YOU screwed up THEIR world and THEIR future. Enjoy the ride!
