Why it's always 20-somethings that want to run the revolution.
I heard a young man on the radio today opining to an unsympathetic Sean Hannity about how it was "always" the young people that made a revolution happen. He seemed to be making the case that conservatives couldn't have a revolution because they weren't young people. This guy actually said, "Nobody wants to hear what some wrinkled up old 65 year old has to say!"
I would just love to see this arrogant little twit try to defend that attitude. This kid is a victim of his own hormones which are busily deluding him into believing he is smarter than Mom and Dad and ought to be out on his own so he can be free! This is nature's way of tricking kids into leaving home. It's a good thing, but too often kids misinterpret temporary insanity for some great burst of enlightenment. All it really is, is a burst of hormones designed by nature to draw all the intelligence out of their wee brains and fool them into believing the fount of all knowledge is located somewhere in their pants.
I say we put this little brainiac on television and let him repeat that statement out in the open where he can be seen. These kids really have no idea how many baby boomers there are out there and how badly we outnumber them. They don't really understand that my generation and my parents generation control something like 85% of all the money in the country. And we grew up iin the 50's and 60's. You want a revolution, buddy, you've come to the right place. You think we were spoiled brats then, go ahead and try to tell us we're irrelevant now. We'll show you a temper tantrum.
Try and explain to us how the handful of you young folk are going to stand up against the generations that whipped the Germans, Japanese, Italians, North Koreans, Chinese, Libyans, Panamanians, Russians, Iraqis (twice) and scared the bejeebers out of anybody else we really wanted to frighten. We didn't really lose to the North Vietnamese. We just threw a twenty-something hormonal tantrum and made our parents stop fighting. We've since realized we were being manipulated by communists and socialist infiltrators.
I, for one, am still pretty hacked off about that.
Make fun of the Tea Parties all you want, but we are just warming up, kid. There ain't nothing as determined as some hacked off grandma that thinks you're doing harm to her grandbabies. Her entire reason for existence from that point on is to tell grandpa where he should place the next shot!
You want to take us on little boy?
To quote a wrinkled up old man I know, "Go ahead. Make my day!"
