I didn't say they were his children. I said the broken families that created these children were the result of the broken families he and his generation created.
Personal responsibility and all that, remember? If you have a beef take it up with todays dissolute teens.
Yes, but again, the people who claim free love, shared prosperity, community responsibility, etc. don't hold that view. At least they don't until it is in their backyard, driveway or 10,000 sq. ft. mansion at which time they sound just like Republicans.
Oh, that's right: the terrible scourge of hippydom is still abroad in the land. Every time a Cindy Sheehan speaks up, every time there's protest against our presence in Iraq, in fact, pretty much every time anyone goes against right wing orthodoxy you can bet your life the dirty fingerprints of a dirty, smelly, free-lovin' hippy are all over it.
I think you have a few derangements of your own to consider because I have not mentioned any of the very strange connections you made there.

These poor kids are truly lazy, cultural misfits. They think they can relive the '60's just as the Faux Punkers I see in Philly want to repeat the London Punk scene. This has nothing to do with the Hippy culture, but the recycled one created by VH1. Believe me, my boss lived in Haight-Ashbury and it was the affluent who pranced around. The ones who migrated (I'm sure their ignorant [Silent Majority] parents were no help) there either pan-handled, fell through the cracks or died too. Seems like another Urban cycle of despair.
But you overlook the good in that story didn't you?
And she'll grow old, and the youth in her twilight years will probably be a pain in the ass too. The cycle continues...you are putting labels on something that has none.
This is happening all over the world.
The very big difference this time is that the generation growing old, doing the judging and falling prey to what every generation on this earth has done, happens to be the largest in history, and also happens to have bankrupted the future by not investing and actually stealing from it, and then on top of it will expect these "lazy, cultural misfits" to somehow pay for their ridiculously high Social Security and Medicare obligations that they created for themselves, but did not feel obligated to pay for. The Boomers have to be the only generation in history to steal from both their parents, their children and their grandchildren.
She won't grow old and label the youth in her twilight years as a pain in the ass too. She'll be too busy paying an 85% income tax rate to give these rat bastards their prescription drugs to have children of her own.
The boomers were too selfish to have enough children to maintain the population. Their now letting in immigrants in some desperate hope that they will fund the future obligations. Only million dollar home grandpa wants his Social Security funded by the lawn man, and we all know what he pays the lawn man.
