Response to brush (Reply #12)

21. My generation was well-represented against Bush the Lesser, & I even made it to several marches....

...at the beginning of Trump.

But there comes a time, young people, when you have to stop waiting for grandma and grandpa to do the heavy lifting (or, in this case, the heavy marching). Because we are all your grandma and grandpa now, and for most of us our joints are giving out.

You're all grown up now, and snarking "Okay, Boomer" at us is not going to save the country or the planet. We tried, and past a certain point it wasn't ever generational warfare, it was always class warfare, which you are experiencing in the here and now.

All the best,

Hekate
