1. That should be printed in cursive.

That'll really fool them.

2. I learned to drive in my uncle's

vehicle. I admit, there was a bit of grinding and locking up the gear shift. However, I still love to drive a stick shift. Never considered stealing a car

6. And one wonders why this board skews so old

It is posts like this. I've also seen it at countless Democratic party meetings.

Shall I see myself off your lawn now?

8. Because that's witty, you can stay. Just cut out the boomer snark...

as there's more of that here than the millennial variety.

And you GenXrs, don't feel ignored like the neglected, middle children you are. And don't get your hackles up.

I'm a middle kid too who knows how it feels.

Note to millennials: Inclusion not exclusion is the watch word here and in the Dem. Party. We're all in this trump crap show together and we need to stay together to fight it.

9. This board is full of boomer snark

Just the other day there was a thread romanticizing landlines.

I've been to various committee meetings (throughout the country) where there might as well be the "Get off my lawn club" and going off on 'kids these days' and dismissing things like texting, cord cutting, and saying how they could buy a house just out of high school.

IF they want kids to vote for Democrats, people can't be so dismissive of an entire generation (and then some as Gen Z is now coming of age). Not one Boomer on this forum has responded to my request to what the under 30 turnout looked like when the Boomers were in that demographic.

10. When the boomers were the under-30 demographic roughly half of...

Last edited Wed Jul 11, 2018, 12:13 PM - Edit history (2)

them were activists or activist sympathizers who lived through the '60s, the most politically turbulent decade of the century and many took to the streets to demonstrate against "the establishment" (if that phrase sounds familiar, vague and dated it's because a certain candidate used it throughout the 2016 campaign to attack the Democratic Party "establishment".

I think you're getting my drift. I'm against divisiveness and refusals to find compromise in the party whether it's boomer versus millennials versus genXrs or progressives versus liberals versus so-called centrists.

But getting back to the under-30 boomers I mentioned before, half were activists or activist sympathizers, the other half were young republicans. That dichotomy exists to this day but the activist half of boomers know from experience that voter turnout of younger people is low because it was low in their ranks in the '60s. That's nothing new. GenXrs will tell you the same thing.

Everyone is not woke enough to recognize this growing generational divide in the party but I am and I think you are. This divide needs to be squashed as it won't help us beat the repugs in November or the orange pustule in 2020 if he survives Mueller.

We can't afford another horrendous divide in 2020 like we had in 2016 with the Clinton/Sanders factions at each others' throats.

12. I've noticed activism comes in spurts

When I was growing up (I'm 38 so half millennial half gen x) most people weren't active. In 2000 (my first presidential election), I was the only one of my friends to vote. The 90s (or 80s) wasn't a decade known for activism like others were. Hell I didn't go to a protest until 2010.

14. Here's a quarter

Go buy a sense of humor. After you make a comment about the value of a quarter and how old people don't know how to use a smart phone except to make phone calls.

4. My husband took his old truck to Walmart for new tires

None of the mechanics on duty knew how to pull it into the garage bays since it's a manual. He was asked to pull it in himself.

Lots of us boomers (including myself) never learned to drive stick.

11. My son insisted on a manual

We live about 20 minutes away from the dealership where we bought it. It took him 40 minutes to drive it home the first time.

When he has it at college, I really donít worry about someone driving off with it. None of his friends are able to drive it.

18. I prefer a manual

It focuses your attention on driving the vehicle while giving you more control over it. Makes it more fun to drive.
