It's worth noting that you call your self a "heterosexual". While you refer to your friends as "gay" as opposed to "homosexual". The word "gay" means to be happy, which could apply to any human relationship. I have relatives who are homosexual, we get along just fine. It's their business and not for me to pass judgement on IMO. But that doens't change the fact that what has been happening lately goes beyond "acceptance". His #5 statement speaks not to "acceptance" but to the current climate of "embrace our lifestyle, or we will label you homophobic!" I personally don't want to "embrace" the lifestyle of homosexual men any more than I want to "embrace" the lifestyle of men who obsess over spectator sports. I don't give a s#it what they do in their private lives, but that doesn't mean I would want to hang out with them either.
It seems since Obama has been in office that Bill has bent over backwards to "give him the reason of a doubt" far enough to give himself a dental exam from the inside. Either he's been bought or threatned.
"I mean" You are referring to "like, ya know" aren't you? :)
So true, and read my comments above. If folks want to know which Boomers to blame, just look for the 55+ folks with the "Obama-Biden' bumper stickers still on their cars. Maybe when these hippies finally die off our grandkids will be able to straightne things out.
More wealth for whom? And those slaves in China ain't about to purchase our "goods and services" anytime soon. This country has way too many people who are experts in "gender studies" but are at the mercy of others when their faucet leaks.
I'm a late boomer. But my education, mentoring and apprenticeships came from WWI vetrans. For this I'm eternally grateful. Unlike many in my age group, I worked in manufacturing for years (while there were still some factories left). But I concurr with your observations. There were many in my age group who wanted to slide by with their "degree", rise to the level of their own incompetence, then set themselves up to do as little as possible for the most amount of income and benefits. My parents grew up in the Great Depression, as opposed to most of my school mates who's parents grew up in the plentiful 1950s. I think this is one reason that I (and my wife) learned to do our best at work, live within our means, and save for a rainy day. While my "contempories" borrowed money against their homes to buy jet skis, travel trailers and boats.

Which historians? Not the ones who will be in the tank for the new world order.

For those of you commenting on Airsoft guns and their safety; "Airsoft is relatively safe when played with proper protection. Most airsoft guns on the market are usually below 350 ft/s (110 m/s), but projectiles expelled from any type of airsoft guns can travel as low as 65 ft/s (20 m/s) to more than 700 ft/s (210 m/s) and are capable of breaking skin at 300 ft/s (91 m/s). Though, if over 300 ft/s (91 m/s), the hit would have to be within a short range and breaking the skin is not the same as penetrating it. Blood can be drawn, but flesh is usually left intact or bruised at worst. Protective eyewear (goggles or glasses) is widely considered the minimum protection for airsoft players, as the eyes may be injured by any type of impact. A little known fact is that the teeth can also be injured (fractured) by the impact of a pellet. Dentists have reported broken teeth that require root canal and crowns to repair damage. A face mask (like that used for paintball) is recommended to protect eyes and teeth." Ain't the internet great?
