The media doesn’t have clean hands

Charles Barkley on Zimmerman: A black athlete who makes sense [2:21]

Best lines: “They didn’t have enough evidence to charge him.” He “feels bad” that the trial gave “every white person and black person who is racist the platform to vent their ignorance.” He also called out the media for not having a “pure heart” when it comes to race. “Racism is wrong in any, shape or form,” Barkley said. “A lot of black people are racist too. I think sometimes when people talk about racism, they say only white people are racist, but I think black people are too. I don’t think the media has clean hands.”

Baby Boomers

I just saw a thing that said: “Is 60 the new 40?”

And I immediately thought, “Of course it is, because WWII baby boomers have always thought everything was about THEM.”

Baby Boomers

IMHO, I think it may be because they were the first generation to have disposable income and because their sheer numbers made advertisers market specifically to them.

When they were teens, they were the Pepsi Generation. When they hit college, they turned into the Hippie Generation that didn’t trust anyone over 30. Then they got tired of being broke … or maybe their parents got sick of supporting them … so they joined the establishment and made Women Can Have It All their mantra. Then their biological clocks went tick-tock, so oh my goodness, you’d have thought they INVENTED pregnancy and parenting, and 40 became the new 30. Then 50. Now 60.

Far out

They were the most self-centered, anti-religious people in American history and they got away with it because they had buying power. But that is rapidly ending as they die off and retire to lower income levels.

Karma

KARMA: “It’s short for “What goes around comes around.”
