    You know, my brother was a Fox watcher. He was super conservative until it clicked that the people at Fox HATE him. It’s really the union bashing that’s been building there over the last year or so. I frankly hope they keep it up.

    Do. Not. Mess. With. the Greatest Generation.
    The baby boomers did a lot of things, and the younger generation certainly owes them, but nobody can put a baby boomer chicken hawk in it’s place like the WWII generation.
