Sorry, A. I don't wear big boy pants if I can help it. One of the great things about working at home is that I can sit here barefooted and in shorts :) What does Vietnam have to do with Ransom's article? That war was prosecuted -- needlessly and foolishly -- by members of the Greatest Generation. It was mostly the Boomers who died in it and ended up paying for it, much as the burden of the unnecessary Iraq war has fallen on the Millennial generation. It seems that each generation visits its stupidity on the next.

Well, the Civil Rights movement as a good thing... and it was brought to you mostly by Republicans. Though the "progressives" try to make you believe otherwise.

one thing that the boomers are famous for is not taking responsibility for themselves. Some people do and i know many. But as soon as most see that there is something free for them they forget all about personal responsibility.

Vietnam and the whole 60's movement was the exceleration of the liberal ideal. It all happened on our watch. Well i was too young then but in the 70's it carried over. it has been a slow decline of our freedoms but it was cause by the boomers. We allowed this mess to happen. So let the blame fall where it belongs.

The choice that we face today is between freedoms on the one hand, and ruin on the other.

There has never been a generation in our history that has been given more than the generation which was born between 1945 and 1960.

They were given so much by their hard and hardy parents, who by fighting through a real economic depression and a great world war, helped bolster freedom for the free and bequeathed freedom to millions of others who lived in the twilight of tyranny.    

I call these sons and daughters of what we know as the Greatest...
