The baby boomers as a cohort are now in their 50s, 60s and 70s — and I think that the collective aging of our populations is producing a rightward shift in our politics that is as temporary in nature as the leftward shift of the 60s and 70s, when these people first became old enough to vote.
Schitzengigles I like it… To create a conservative from a liberal you must first addle the brain! But liberals can do the same. Liberal thinks need to go beyound the selfish instinct.
Discover has officially reached a new low. The title of the article and comments 2, 3, and 4 especially 2 are hateful and unsupportable and almost silly comments.

Why, then, are they less interesting? When I started to pay attention, and thus became educated on what was happening, I could not logically hold together the beliefs that those on the Left kept maintaining.
They were contradictory, illogical, inflammatory, accusatory, and generally off-ball nuts. I started looking at ALL the arguments, from both sides, and found that those that were giving cogent, reasoned, factual-based opinions were on the Right.
I see them as frat boys that throw a flaming bag of dog doo on the porch and congratulating themselves on how clever they are at thinking up something new and executing it flawlessly.
