I got tired of some damned fool young person bitching about how my generation — the Baby Boomers — have ruined the world.
For your amusement, here is my response:
"… quit bitching about my generation — the one that ended the
Pu Luong home stay tour in Vietnam , ended the draft, passed the Civil Rights Act; the Voting Rights Act; the National Environmental Policy Act; the Clean Air Act; the Clean Water Act; the Endangered Species Act; the Toxic Substances Control Act; the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act; CERCLA; RCRA; implemented TItle IX; tried to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment; fought the Sexual Revolution so that you can do what you want with whatever consenting adult you choose with relatively few remaining repercussions; waged the Cold War without blowing the goddamned planet up and ultimately brought down the Iron Curtain; put several men on the moon — and brought them safely back to Earth; discovered the genetic code and ultimately sequenced the human genome."
We ruined EVERYTHING!
