"Fortunately, the Baby Boomers failed."
I hope you're right. I'm one of those boomers. This nonsense started when I was still in high school in the 60's. Most of my generation were selfish, spoiled, uneducated in history bores who still believe they are more enlightened than any generation before them.
I didn't like them then, and Kerry/Edwards are the hallmark of what I didn't like. However, I must say something about the "greatest" generation before us. They are the ones who truly benefited from Social Security, the good economy etc. and I find them to be the last to worry about all of you or the boomers. Many boomers have never benefitted and will never benefit from the "great society". Social security will not be there for us by the time we reach age 67 or older to qualify...they keep raising the age. Hopefully, if you raise enough hell, the powers will fix the mess before you reach this age.
You mean the ones that were able to payoff their homes, had good paying manufacturing jobs, and spend their retirement riding around in their 100 thousand dollar mobile homes whining about the cost of perscription drugs, and voting against school bond measures. The parents of the boombers?
Let's just say their expectation to be kept alive forever through advances in medical science has bankrupted the countries health care system.
