I'll let you read the blather over at this 'liberal' blog. Anyway, I had a 'that's all I can stands, I can't stands no more' moment with these flower children:
God, I’ve never read as much Boomer candyassing on both sides as I’ve read here. Time for me to lay some reality on all of you.
For the past 9 years, the Boomer elites have sent our young to the Middle East. Most of these yobs are the same chickenhawks that did not serve themselves. If they did, they’d understand war. And what they’d be subjecting their children to.
Telling a bunch of kids in their teens to 20s to ‘resist!’ after they’ve been thru basic is a lost cause. Didn’t work for you dumb hippies then and won’t work now.
I don’t care what some chickhawk yob who went to Canada says, those kids deserve our support. LibbyLiberal, while I don’t agree with everything he says is dead on. We have a bunch of kids over there now in their late 20s or early 30s who have known nothing but war. To them, that’s ‘normal’.
What you Boomers have done thru Bush & BlackBush *cough* Obama is reprehensible. You’ve basically maimed *your children*. Kids who should be back here jump starting the economy, instead replaced by ‘guest workers’ from the 3rd world, like those grifters from India.
Instead you wage generational cleansing on your own children and hire slaves to take up their slack in a desperate bid to ‘fire the economy’:
And to DavidByron: You live in a fantasy world. Change does not come from the bottom, change originates at the top. And if you’re not shaming Obama, Pelosi and your fellow chickenhawk flower children into ending this war, then you’re just supporting the war by your inaction and all this blathering. It’s because of yobs like you that Bush & Co continue to broker policy to that horse-trading ‘just a guy’ who is our president.
What we SHOULD DO is let Afghanistan implode. We should let China annex India. And we never should have gone into Iraq when they were doing such a good job of crippling each other. [the other being Iran].
What none of you understand is that the world is collectively getting OLDER. We live in the framework of your tired old impractical ideas. You made the hell. And kids in their 20s just barely getting a presence of mind are waking up to this fact.[From The Seminal » 20 Sobering Statistics/Reasons As To Why We Must End the Wars and Save More of Our Soldier Children and Middle Eastern Citizens From Suffering And Dying]
The only good thing about this is that the Boomer reign of blah in the Whitehouse ends with Barry. And if we elect another Boomer we'll get exactly what we deserve.
Note that I used to say this about NeoCons. Now I say it about Boomers.
I've spoken with folks who have been stop-lossed to Iraq and Afghanistan. They don't like being there, a lot of them don't see the point and just want out. But the military is its own micro-society of material ownership and debt.
Obama was their one hope to end this cycle of madness, and quite a few have said as much to me.
Guess what? Same as the old boss.
