For those who keep seeing OWS as some hippie wannabes who are trying to revive a fleeting past of sex, drugs, rock and roll, and pretend politics that never really mattered to anyone, these aren't the boomers out there. This isn't just another manifestation of the most selfish generation in American history -- another Woodstock, another tax credit, another medicare entitlement. The Boomers are the establishment now.
Those mud and feces covered hippies have spent their entire lives taking liberties and benefits that no generation before them had and now plan to spend the rest of their lives trying to prevent the next generations from getting even half the same deal. The Boomers aren't just the most selfish generation in American history, they're in a league of their own.
No other generation has sucked up more resources or avoided more taxes. No other generation has more draft dodgers who were never prosecuted. No other generation has more entitlements designed just for them and no other generation complains half as loudly when they don't get someone else to pay their way. Today's Boomers are far more likely to be conservatrolls on the internet than OWS protestors in the park. So if it's the mud and feces crowd you're looking for, drop in on Fox Nation or Red State. Because the OWS activists aren't yesterday's hippies.
