Saw Newt Gingrich announce his candidacy and thought: Take your dysfunctional ways and retire already....I'm so tired of the regurgitated trash in the political process making decisions that affect us all...ppl who were born in the 30'-40's-50's....enuff...the homophobia, the racism, the economic greed...the just living scared all the dam time of everything you don't understand or not willing to change and adapt...

i'm done venting...anybody else feel the same way? It's bad enuff this guy left his wives in ditches but his best performance was giving us a dysfunctional partisan gov't for the better part of 15 years that Obama is slowly untangling...I do not want to go back to Newt's idealistic partisanship-get nothing done government...

Obama couldn't untangle his own shoe laces let alone anything significant. He fails at everything he attempts so the Dems don't have much as far as a strong candidate in 2012 do they? At least people like Gingrich.

You sure like painting large chunks of humanity with a broad brush, don't you?

And all because of Newt?

Boomers didn't come into being until '46 so leave the '30 to '45 out of it.

I memory serves me right, boomers were in of the vanguard of the civil rights, environmental and women's equality movements.

What have you done?

I've never met one person who confessed to that.

When you have accomplished 1/1000 of what the boomer generation did then you can open your trap and spout your foolishness. Until then you would be wise to shut your mouth and listen to your elders. You might actually learn something.

How about this, all Gen X'ers are lazy Doritos eating, Nintendo playing losers who can't find the front door because their arse is Velcro'd to the couch!
If it weren't for Mommy and Daddy supporting them they would all be living under a bridge sans Nintendo. They are what baby boomers call Punks!

How do you like that broad brush?

Great post and so well thought out. The OP needs to return to grammar school to learn proper sentence formation and punctuation.

Actually, plenty of boomers feel the same way; the characteristics that you mention are precisely what fueled the upheaval of the '60s and '70s.
I'd like nothing more than to see racists, the avaricious, the prejudiced and the bloodthirsty just melt away. Sadly, there are also young people who prefer to cling to out-dated social stances.

Ok this has to be a troll, right?

Obama... untangling... and government was non-partisan before 1994?

HAHAHAHA, that's a good one!
