------but instead of protesting people boycott. This is because they are too lazy to get off their butts and,hey,who's gonna know anyway. We just havetheir word for it and most people are liars.

A sad state of affairs. Groups of sheep have splintered down to fragments of a herd and all pick one or two things to boycott.

To be honest you should boycott people like me. You do not like the things I say. Who knows,I might even be right. A lot of the truths others input here are right as well.

Speaking of the sixties... Its really funny to me, that all these kids think "Well its just a matter of time before these evil old people die off and take their hatred with them" dont even realize that the "old" people who are making anti gay legislation are products of not only the 60s, but part of the "peace, love and understanding" generation.

What I will be rolling my ass off (If I live that long) is in another 20 years when gay marriage still isnt legalized, Kids are still saying gays should have the same human rights, and theres still a balance of "evil old people" against gay marriage and then you realize its the same hypocritical kids who were protesting today.

Exactly...The overwhelming percentage of the peace and love generation who railed against capitalism, war, material goods, "dress codes" and protested everything coming down the pike, are now exactly what they protested against.



Generalized fact here, but MOST people become more and more conservative as they age...They wise up more:)

There are exceptions to the rule however, LL being one :)

Personally, I think their brains dry up and they stop trying to figure things out for themselves and just go with the flow....just my opinion. I'm more liberal now than I was when I was younger and thought other people knew more than I did....I learned differently...:)

It would be nice if the younger people would just spend a few months getting to know who THEY are themselves without a bunch of influence from friends,taking the time to find out who they really are and form their own opinions on whichever issue or subject interests them. Not gonna happen, I know, but it would be nice if they could do that.
