One of the biggest, ahem, distortions of the McCain campaign that’s ticked me off (but in a laughable sense) is that Obama is a socialist or that his policies are socialist. McCain knows that that isn’t true in the least, but that hasn’t stopped him and his campaign from attacking him as such – even though his running mate strictly “shared the wealth.” It’s just a stupid call, it’s distortive, it’s divisive, it’s a bastardization of truth and of the work of governance. Let’s just cut to the chase, eh?
Eugene Cho lets us know who he’s voting for, without directly saying it. And I love this car:
Millenials, I don’t know what to say… I was born at the tail end of the “Gen X” era, so it’s not like I’m all that separated from this generation, but I can’t help but feel that they are the most coddled and spoiled one ever. But then I have to consider that we are both products of the most divisive generation ever. Boomers were the first generation to not just defy their parents (who hasn’t), but to openly and disrespectfully do so. Ayers was part of a generational seismic shift and merely spoke for his confused times when he said, “Kill all parents.” Millenials are like the youngest children from that generation, and like most youngest children, they see more primarily than the others the hypocrisy of their parents, who ask us to trust them now that they’ve well broached the age of 35 and have left us all with massive debt (that we’re still adding to) while burning resources at premium rates.
Hopefully, that wasn’t just a rant (that too, of course) but may give some perspective to this:
