Points well taken. I did say in most instances. And there are exceptions to the rule. Obviously the ones who have given the ultimate sacrifice cannot be lumped into the category. Yet you cannot deny the "tsunami" of the baby boom generation. My point is that our leaders today who fall in the Boomer generation are a victim of sociology rather than ideology.
Watch every retirement commercial and tell me that the baby Boomers aren't self absorbed. We have to be reminded constantly that they were the generation that made a difference. That they were the generation of revolution. And what are the images that Fidelity, Met Life and other insurance companies force down out throat? The 60's, protest, Vietnam and every other baby boomer synonyms. When the WWII generation they did so quietly. Not needing advertising to tell us how special they are. Again there are exceptions and they are the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice but for the most part the Baby Boom generation has bought us promiscuous sex, a drug culture, entitlement mentality, warm fuzziness and pseudo ailments.
Ahhhhhhhhhh, you speak of all the "Boomers" that got the MSM attention in the 60's. Same bunch getting the attention today, but a small vocal minority, as far as I was and am now concerned.
Tens of thousands in the streets, while hundreds of thousands of us served an ungrateful nation.
Perhaps the MSM and those who place all their trust in it can really find their place in the "blame game".
Again, my point is that "we" all need to accept responsibility for where we have gotten and "we" all need to make the changes we can to restore Constitutional Republican Democracy to our once great Republic.
Have a great day and God Bless America, again!
