Quote of the day

Buttonwood:
The baby boomers have pushed up house prices so their children can't afford them, promised themselves generous benefits, and left states that are too debt-burdened to pay those benefits. One thing is for sure, the current generation of children won't able to retire at 62, let alone 60.

Every once and a while, FLG recognizes how much the Boomers fucked up pretty much everything*, and he has an overwhelming urge to go out onto the street, find one, and beat the shit out of them as a microcosm of intergenerational justice.

It takes two to tango and two to fuck.

I'd join you.

George:

In this case, it isn't fucking. It's pederasty.

The Ancient said...

Non, je ne regrette rien...

(The entire song is a perfect Boomer anthem -- or requiem, if you like.)

FLG,

Making an exigency of every baby boomer desire was the doing of the ‘Greatest Generation’ whose faith in their ability to modulate every cycle, risk, setback, and hardship new few bounds. So if you’re in for some payback, find an old guy who’s never been at a loss for a solution and kick his cane out from under him. I heard Congress was a target rich environment for such but they’re dying off fast so better hurry.

Why am I suddenly humming Anthrax's "Starting Up A Posse"?

Don't be surprised if like the Big 3 in 2008, that in the very first days after the election several states will ask Washington for *help*.

If so, the Dems will redefine lame duck congress.
