1. You lost all credibility when you said the Boomers never experienced war. Does the name Vietnam ring any bells? Many young men were drafted against their will, even before they were allowed to vote (and yes, Boomers were the ones who fought to lower the voting age to 18). Many died, many came home terminally damaged, either mentally or physically or both.
  2. You are blaming an entire generation for the sins of the elite. Most Boomers were themselves Union members. While many voted for Republicans, many also voted for Democrats. The attacks on the middle class were snuck in, or passed under some bogus premise, just like they continue to do now. At least now we see what these supply side/trickle down economics do. Back then, many didn’t.
