As the Boomers begin falling into the abyss,

they have to look around and wonder if it was worth it. If you were born in 1950, for example, you grew up in America that is vastly different than today. It’s one your grandchildren will never enjoy. The trillions spent knocking down what you inherited could maybe have been spent more wisely. The Messiah and David Brooks | The Z Blog

Your Say

I was born in 1955. My parents are both 87; my mom has untreatable stage 4 cancer. My dad is a World War 2 veteran. I told the both in Obama's first term that they had lived their lives at the best time ever in America's history. They saw and helped make happen the best America ever was or ever will be.

"You won't live to see the collapse of the American idea," I told them. "But I will. And your grandchildren will never know what it was like to live in liberty. The very word will be meaningless to them."

Sure and begorrah, these boomers are the very ones that brought this malaise upon this country. They're the dorks that decided to riot in the late 60's/early 70's and usher in the Democrat "Radiant Future" which they now reap.

To this day there is pony-tailed males bald pates shining but that spout of hair sticks out like their limp willies. That is their faux soul; the real soul they sold to Mao and Marx so they could get laid. Pottage!

Now their kids will pay the price.

I hope long hair alone is not your target.
I've had long hair most of my life and see no reason to change.

Lots of folks around here have named their compound but I have held back til now. Our's is now named "Hail of Shrapnel"

You are doing exactly what 'ghostsniper'? Killed any boomers lately? Or anyone else you have deemed as unworthy of life?

In fact have you done anything at all that would actually put your lame carcass at risk for anything at all? Do you stand for anything to the point that you actually have risked your life for?

The 'boomer' generation is comprised of a lot of good people. Many veterans, who got a great big finger from an American that forgot their service until Desert Storm. Even the long-haired stood unarmed and took death at Kent State and other places.

Then of course there was the birth of women's liberation and civil rights.

Although I must wonder about the 'boomers' that spawned your hyper-critical, hypocritical, puke-spewing soul. What were they thinking? What did they teach you that your soul would be such a pot of vitriol?

Anything constructive to provide? I seriously doubt it.

When I see some of these people run­ning their game I want to say “Kid, I ran with bik­ers, shot junk, robbed banks; my hands have taken lives and saved lives when I was in the military; I worked with the Billy Gra­ham Cru­sade; I got a mil­lion miles of high­way under my ass, slept with dogs, danced with angels, I got screw­drivers older than you … what ya gonna show me, uh?

I have smelled the foul sulphur breath of Satan as I lay dying; I have crawled the narrow path to lay at Jesus' feet, asking He intervene with Father God to spare my life; there are wicked wild hounds that visit me in the dark hours before dawn, scratching at my door, looking to drink my blood if I drop my guard; I have been washed in sunlight and caressed by cool breezes.

People of Faith have a logical idea of what Life is all about. And Death too.
That's me.

Son, the 20th of April this year marks the 40th year in a row that I have been a disabled vet but it only slowed me down temporarily, way back when.

I continuously stand ready to do what I believe to be right when the time is right.

Now quit crying and go clean yourself up.
