Why? What's the hurry?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

When will you guys grow up?

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional. I choose not to exercise that option

Boomers, who was born between 1946 - 1964, I say, a confused generation.

They knew WW2 made US a very strong and significant country. But did they wonder why there was big struggle in Korean War and a loss in Vietnam war?  Winning the "cold"  war brought the Berlin Wall down  but there comes out a Euro.

And old values and new philosophies

and some, do not even want to grow up..

I'll see how politicians get their serious votes...which means that their golden time will be here..or I am wrong at all?

TomMark,
Well, speaking as one who lipped off about not being in a hurry to grow up, I can tell you it wouldn't hurt to lighten up a little. It's always easy to point the finger at something or someone else - but the truth is we're all in this together and we've all contributed to where we're at. It's just that some thought being disinterested relieved them of any responsibility. Turns out everyone is human. Turns out everybody makes mistakes. Turns out everybody has a skeleton or more in their closet. So if nobody is left to throw the first stone then I guess that means we probably ought to own where we've arrived and recognize we gotta accept the good with the bad. Because we aren't likely to experience a perfect here here 'cause this ain't heaven, but for now it's as close as we can get.
Peace...

Dear Larry C, I agree totally with you!!
Each generation has different life experience.

I see no difference between Boomers and 49ers.

Born in 1944, at the tail end of one generation and the very beginning of another, I think I was a Beat-Boomer. The arguments were still more interesting than those of Boom-Boxers.  Except for the one about Ayn Rand.

Personally, I intend to grow up on Wednesday, and expect cards.

I think that the generation being through the Great Depression and WW2 are more down to earth and they built the platform where the boomers are standing on.
