    Some thoughts on the greatest generation?

    My thoughts:

    They did a lot of great things, but they are sure leaving a lot of
    turds in the puchbowl on the way out.

    ( E.g. - probably the most worst generation for pushing an abandonment
    of individual freedoms in favor of government everything - can't blame
    that on the under 30's crowd)

    Of course, the current U.S. administration talks up a storm about less
    government being better government, but has still restricted
    individual freedom in pursuit of security, while decreasing regulation
    on the sources of ecological "turds in the punch-bowl".

    Dubbya's crew did less than nothing to slow the progression of
    anthropogenic global warming - after all they'd have trouble spelling
    anthropogenic, let alone understanding the science involved - and
    Dubbya is celebrating his last days in power by gutting the
    restrictions on dumping mining spill in rivers amongst many other
    gifts to the extractive industries.

    It looks like old-fashioned stupid greed and corruption - nothing
    specific to the greatest generation (whoever they are).
