Oh, I think it was deserved. Well deserved.Blowing people that had the gall to say that they were the arsenal of democracy, while then sitting there and denying those who had shared those hardships, that had fought and died alongside them the ability to practice it is complete garbage. I know a lot of people love to live in this fairy tale land of "The good old days", but for most of us, it wasn't good. It was tolerable at best. Yes, it could have been worse, but that doesn't mean it's something to aspire to.
Again, one can respect the people who fought, while also saying that the "Greatest Generation" tag is undeserved. Honestly, I don't think the Greatest Generation tag should apply to any generation, because as long as we don't fully perform in word and deed what this country should be about, we are doing our fellow citizens a disservice. We should be doing better, but as long as people can rely on cheap patriotism, the people who benefit from the current arrangement will continue to fleece all of us.
The world wasn't perfect after they won the war? Well that's just unbelievable . . .
One may suggest that the world today is SO much better.
That's bullshit, too.
