You're right in describing the left from the '60s. Most of us weren't involved in drugs, protests, or anything of that nature. Now, however, the left is entrenched in everything from universities to the media to wall street.
However, most of us are living our lives, trying to keep our businesses going, and taking care of our families.
"...I find my fellow boomers to be, for the most part, the most pathetic crowd of incompetent do nothings I could ever imagine."
I guess that is why our country is in the tank. /s
I'm sorry your are such a negative person.
BTW, don't ever say this again..."the chickens are finally coming home to roost"...lest someone confuse you with Rev. Wright.
While the entrenched 60's leftists and their running dogs run our principal institutions, which jobs they got by being the best group of sycophants and go along to get along kind of folks in the history of our fair republic.
While you think everything is rolling along just fine, I guess you didn't notice the news item today about the government taking over FNM and FMC. Guess who lead that mess and guess who just inflated the economy another few hundred billion to pay for it. Yet - you guess it - another bunch of ivy league boomers who were so smart they don't need to follow the same accounting rules about income exceeding expenses that you have to if you run a small business.
Your kind of accounting is for the little folk and has been out of fashion in circles of power for about 20 years.
I am actually a very positive person. I believe that if you take facts as they exist, apply reason, figure out what you need to do, and work hard to put the solutions into place you can accomplish great things.
For instance, I view Petraeus very positively. He is a breath of fresh air. I am also very aware that it was these same unaccomplished boomer elitists who created the misdirected mess in Iraq that Petraeus had to get us out of.
And I am awfully hard on idiots who bury their heads in the sand and don't look to see what is going on around them and then try to think hard about it.
In other words, God gave you eyes to see, ears to hear and a brain to think. Try using them for a change. I am a positive person, and I believe with a bit of self-motivation you can do these things too.
In brief, your Dr. Pangloss act is not an anti-dote to the NYT.
