Had to get this off my chest.

Something I heard recently really made me happy. It was a reference to the Baby Boomers, who are now scared and frightened that the country is going to move forward without them.

Well, I think maybe that's true. Both that the country is moving forward without them, AND that they are frightened by this.

But let's look at a few things realistically. It is always the young people who move things forward. These very people, the Baby Boomers, filled this role in the 1960's and 1970's (anyone care to remind them of this?) It was the burning of the bras and the flags which stopped a war. It was a new way of thinking, a new way of feeling. Yoga and meditation and other forms of peaceful expression came into our culture from the East. It was a time for fighting the Establishment and making changes in the fabric of our society. They were the system busters of that age, and they were successful.

However, now, I think they have lost touch with their roots. Now, they have not yet considered, that they ARE the Establishment. And they claim they are fighting the Establishment. These are the very people who started hugging trees 50 years ago and showed their parents a better way to be. They are the reason children don't go to bed beaten, rape, hungry and broken in this country anymore. They are the ones who brought some compassion to our society, and by extension, our world.

And now, they are different. I don't know if it is senility or simple forgetfulness, or maybe just systemic fear. But something has to give. And it's going to be the old people.

The youngsters are the ones to bring change to the world. And the fact that this group of people were successful once before in altering the social and political flavors of our country at a time when great change was needed, might be the very thing that has them holding on for dear life right now.

But the fact remains, not only is it 1. the Majority who are able to bring change in a democracy (when everyone is paying attention and doing their civic duty), but 2. it is the younger generations who pound and rail against the things that are wrong (How many of us have said the older children are the ones to break Mom and Dad in for their younger siblings?), but also 3. as of 2005, the Baby Boomers were only 25.6% of the population.

So, sorry you had to hear this from me, but your Tea Bagging for Jesus is going down.

Your children insist upon it.

A Letter from Satan to Pat Robertson

Dear Pat Robertson,

I know that you know that all press is good press, so I appreciate the shout-out. And you make God look like a big mean bully who kicks people when they are down, so I'm all over that action.

But when you say that Haiti has made a pact with me, it is totally humiliating. I may be evil incarnate, but I'm no welcher. The way you put it, making a deal with me leaves folks desperate and impoverished. Sure, in the afterlife, but when I strike bargains with people, they first get something here on earth -- glamour, beauty, talent, wealth, fame, glory, a golden fiddle. Those Haitians have nothing, and I mean nothing. And that was before the earthquake. Haven't you seen "Crossroads"? Or "Damn Yankees"? If I had a thing going with Haiti, there'd be lots of banks, skyscrapers, SUVs, exclusive night clubs, Botox -- that kind of thing. An 80 percent poverty rate is so not my style. Nothing against it -- I'm just saying: Not how I roll. You're doing great work, Pat, and I don't want to clip your wings -- just, come on, you're making me look bad. And not the good kind of bad. Keep blaming God. That's working. But leave me out of it, please. Or we may need to renegotiate your own contract. Best, Satan

They have a bit on the news this morning about calling in the moms to balance the budget. I've been saying we need to do this for years!
