Teach Your Children Well: Good Job, Hippies!!!

“American teenagers lie, steal and cheat more at 'alarming rates,' a study of nearly 30,000 high school students concluded Monday."

-- Breitbart.com


  1. Actually, 1968 was 40 years ago, so the teenagers of that era (Baby Boom) are now likely in their 60s, and their own children are in their 30s (Generation X).

    By contrast, the teenagers who lie, cheat and steal per your report were largely conceived during the first Bush administration (Generation Y).

  2. Sorry, but you obviously haven't read this blog enough:

    I'm dealing with the cultural currents unleashed by hippies - those didn't just stop in 1968 but have been passed down.

    Nice try, though. Everything is Bush's fault to hippies.

  3. "the cultural currents unleashed by hippies" - like wow, groovy man, are "cultural currents" like radiation or electromagnetic energy or something?

    That is a neat trick, actually, that lets you ignore history and demographics by appealing to made-up invisible "forces" instead... far out...

    Anyway, back to reality, the Bush of the late 80s-early 90s is a different guy from the guy who is president now.

    Same first and last names, but different person - the 41st president, not the 43rd.

    My 2 cents, you should read a few good books and stop trying to understand history in terms of space-waves and imaginary woo force fields, it doesn't really work that way.

  4. Yep, I'm off on my "own trip", paying no mind to the crowd, what-so-ever. Why? Conventional wisdom is almost always wrong.

    Bush 41 is the president's father, who the NewAgers claimed was the Anti-Christ before his son got elected. I knew who you meant. What I should've said was:

    Everything is (a) Bush's fault to hippies.
