I wrote this in the depths of the Obama presidency, which accounts for its dolorous tone.

My Generation Ruined America

Count yourself lucky if you’re too young to remember the late 60s-early 70s, the Age of Hippies. My generation. Hot dog. Look what we did to this country. It’s a wonder there’s anything left of it.

Democrats will use the coronavirus panic to try to finish us off for good, replace America with some third-world socialist hell-hole ruled in perpetuity by themselves. They’ve been rooting for three years for the economy to collapse, and now they’ve got what they wanted.

But they couldn’t have done it without us, the Baby Boomers.

We ruined this country.

These I miss! Why can’t we bring these back, instead of hippies?

My life is definitely better now that I don’t have television in it anymore: I am spared exposure to things that might melt my brain.

Some Things I Do Not Miss

Most of you are probably not old enough to remember the expensive jeans fad of the mid-1970s. Same as Sears or Wrangler jeans, but at five times the price. “You’ve got the look!” The look of a sucker, they mean.

And as for hippies, well, I’m afraid they’re coming back.
