...In a totally hetero, non-ghey, totally admiring kind of way. Read this piece he just wrote for Opinion Journal. I find it rather disheartening that in the space of one generation, we went from the Greatest Generation (known for valor, sacrifice, and literally saving Western Civilization from the jaws of tyranny), to the Least Generation (known for their ego-centric, cowardly self (and world) destroying complete lack of all morals). This cohort, that so bravely railed against 'The Man' in the 60's, has now turned into the very personification of evil they supposedly hated in their youth. The generation of Hilary and Jf'nK, their storied accomplishments seared, seared I say, into their memories, are nothing but useless sacks of waste. The ultimate conclusion to their failed policies and actions:
"A quick study of social statistics before and after the 1960s is quite telling. The rising rates of divorce, high school drop outs, drug use, abortion, sexual diseases and crime, not to mention the exponential expansion of government and taxes, is dramatic. The "if it feels good, do it" lifestyle born of the 1960s has proved to be destructive and deadly."
Yeah, "destructive and deadly," I think that about sums it up. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Generation-X winds up being a little bit more responsible.
Update: I should clarify this comment I made in the post:
"The generation of Hilary and Jf'nK, their storied accomplishments seared, seared I say, into their memories, are nothing but useless sacks of waste."
Since I refer to the entire generation, this should obviously exclude any relation of mine who is a Republican or a pro-America Bluedog Democrat, especially if they are allegedly responsible for my existence!
