If people knew how the Great R was engineered by the fine people of Wall Street, they would not just "occupy" it.

I really do not feel very bad for the baby boomers because I believe they are the generation to blame for the problems. Hippies, drugs, divorce, raising spoiled kids, greediness, raising the home prices because of greediness, etc.

Individually, I feel sorry for the baby boomers, but not as a group. They voted the mess we've gotten in place. They voted for Carter. They voted for Reagan. Spend, spend, spend, borrow, borrow, and borrow. Where was the outrage. Where is it now?

Now... in 20 years when my generation gets old enough to reap what we've sown, my grandkids and children will be saying the same thing about my generation. And they'll be right! Unless we fix it.

Simple math, but Congress can't seem to get it. Spend less than you get. Works for families, works for churches, it can work for our country too.

Only one way, that's for members of their own parties to start calling their own leaders out. Democrats that care will start telling their party to cut spending. If it doesn't happen, more pain is coming. Republicans that care will call their party out when it acts like Big Gov't after promising otherwise. Just look at the results of "Republican held" eras.... Massive spending, yuck!. Both parties will have to come up with more revenue some how in the meantime. Long live Bowles-Simpson.
