Now that everyone is raving about the Obama “generation shift” in American politics — remember Bill Clinton and the hairdresser, blocking traffic at LAX? — the following link opens on new vistas of possibility and actual hope. Over time, no doubt, larger and larger numbers will only be able to agree with:
Fortunately, our kids have been raised by us in our oldtime non-judgemental way with the idea of abortion on demand (preferably paid for by the government) as well a horde of other new-found “rights.” So they will probably be able pretty easily to put across the idea on themselves, of “compassionate” euthanasia, especially as the bills for a whole swarming drooling generation of Clinton and Bush imitators mount.
(All that will be needed to persuade the reluctant bare handful who still go to church will be to portray convincingly these old boomers as a kind of demographic ticking WMFD, or Chinese-financed Weapon of Mass Financial Destruction.)
