This is yet another glaring example of Politically Correct Facism that had it's start in the 1980's and is rearing it's ugly head these days more than ever. It's just so absurd that you really begin to wonder what goes on in the minds of these knuckleheads

A few thoughts on these "knuckleheads".....


They do not belong to the WW 2 generation.
They had a lot more to fret about than dieting
and their cholesterol level.

They also did not start us down this road to elimination
of personal freedom.

They did not legislate helment laws or smoking bans or food bans
or cruising bans, a yes to law suits, a yes to eliminating recess fpr kids, control of the internet...all this crap that keeps getting out of control.

The Baby Boomers are responsible.

Yes, those Flower Power, Free Love, or whatever they claimed to believe so passionately hippies.


They have become what they once so seemingly rebeled against.



I'm sad to say, it's the generation I was born into.


Sorry

why turn this into a generational/left-right/anti-hippie issue?

isn't this precisely the same thing you're upset about -- you're using some sweeping monocausal explanation (it's the hippie's fault???) for a bit of idiocy.
