    Back then, they didn't trust anyone over 30.

    They were repulsed by the mere image of fat cat corporate influence peddlers, like Jeffrey Immelt, Warren Buffet, Boone Pickens, Ariana Huffington and George Soros.

    They were reflexively anti-foreign war, no matter who was prosecuting it.

    They distrusted-cum-detested the establishment.

    But now they are the establishment, so all bets are off.

    Sure, you can grow up.

    But what of becoming just about everything that you professed to despise?

    There's some serious Freudian shit skulking around these here parts.

    One of them is currently the President.

    I'll save any comments about dying for a later date.

    don't go blaming that asshat on the 60's-they've got enough problems.

    he's younger than me, and i'm barely a 60s kid.

    he's more of a disco queen

    just sayin

    Oddball, Both my parents were 60's liberal, I guess. They both also helped man reach the moon and further our space program to toadys level. My dad is now retired due to cancer but moms is still hard at work on the range.


    I was wondering why you had not posted on the thread I started. This generation you speak of put us ahead in so many ways and you seem to forget. Just trying to stay positive here.

    He's my age and I'm a '60s kid.

    I hung out with them...I partied with them...I fell for it while I was young, dumb and full of cum.

    I was out in The World busting my hump, while they were in college learning how everything isn't.

    Now, they're the ones who are The Man, while guys like me are poo-poo-ed as "fringe teabaggers".

    Irony is a bitch, man.

    people said the same thing about my late client jerry rubin.

    but i do love the list of "influence peddlers" named by the o/p.

    i'm thinking he left out rupert murdoch, roger aisles the koch brothers, etc, etc,

    any excuse for him to rant and rave while being dishonest, i guess.
