Don’t worry DFL. Gen Y & X have the show now. OUR turn. You had your movement. It was beautiful! We all learned so much from it. We still are fighting it as some people are still bigots and we THANK you for that. You’re invited to our table, but we’re here to clean up some of the messes you DID leave behind for us. Thanks elders and establishment (BOTH parties, you’re BOTH guilty) for bailing out Wall Street, for forcing me to watch my peers get killed in wars that were wrong and based on lies, for forcing me to help pay for those wars that killed my peers, for conning me into helping you get elected over and over again with your phony promises of universal healthcare while ignoring the obvious of a public option, for the United States Patriot Act, for stealing elections, for lying about vetoing the NDAA, for trying to shove SOPA/PIPA down my throat like the nuns forced religion down my throat as a child, and for listening to SONY, GE, TIME WARNER, APPLE, MICROSOFT, LOCKHEED MARTIN, RAYTHEON, WALMART, BP, STARBUCKS, TARGET, US BANK, WELLS FARGO, WACHOVIA, the unlimited term limit United States Supreme Court Justices YOU continued to appoint despite MY input, etc. Let’s stop pretending you’ve been listening all these years or that our voices are heard. If you can’t help because your heads are in the sand, okay. If you are willing to help clean up the messes you left behind as you forgot about the sanitation team, THANK YOU! But now it’s OUR turn and we’re cleaning up your clutter that you left for us. Prior to this mess, you guys got to be the GODS of the world and we respected you and trusted you as our parents and grandparents. We understand people make mistakes. But now you just break even due to this mess you created for us as we struggle with enormous college loans and zero jobs that you with the money are too greedy to create for us; forcing us to create our own since you refuse to share.
