Okay, at the risk of pissing a bunch of people off, I am just going to say it! It is my firm belief that the baby boomer generation ruined this country.
There, I said it. I feel much better now.
Without them, liberalism or progressivism would not have spawned like mold in a wet basement or mushrooms in a pile of crap.
They burned bras … great! They protested the war … great! They did drugs … really great! They made women think staying at home was a burden … even greater! They made it hip to think that if it feels good, it’s right … forget morality … great!
And where did it all get us?
A less motivated culture of kids in gen X (my generation) and an even more entitled generation in the millennial-trophy-society-helmet-head kids.
High teenage pregnancy rates. Diminished family unit. High STD rates. Increased drug use. An entitlement society. Poverty. Out of control spending. Domestic problems. International problems. ETC. ETC. ETC.
All resulting from the 60s. Thank you very much!
There, I said it. I feel relieved. Sorry if I offended anyone … well, not really.
