You posted, "Mark Steyn in his column stated," Isn’t it terrific to be able to stick it to the young?" I think Mark steyn has the wrong perception on who is getting it stuck to them and who is doing the sticking. First of all part of the energy and enthusiasm shown for Barack Obama by young people was their undeclared motivations to shove it to the older people and show them that they were now in the drivers seat. The young peoples attitudes most often displayed by them is that the elderly should step aside and let those who are more knowledgeable and in tune with todays world be the ones to make the decisions. Since the young people played a major part in the success of Barack Obama's winning the election shouldn't the bill for making that determination of who should be president also, in fairness, be theirs as well. Didn't they,"....stand around behind Barack Obama at all those campaign rallies helping him look dynamic and telegenic and earnestly chanting hopey-hopey-changey-changey. And "Yes, we can!" isn't it justice. And Barack Obama says," there’s yet another exciting spending bill with twelve zeroes on the end." Isn't it justice that in the younger generations desire to stick it to the older generation they are the ones getting the dirty end of the stick and the sweetest part of the deal is that the one sticking it to the younger generation is one of their own choosing.
Sometimes we have to protect them from themselves - as most parents understand at one point or another.
