Reminds me of the lyric the Woody Guthrie lyric from "She Came Along to Me" (it's one of the thousands of song lyrics he left behind, written in 1939-1967, but when nobody knows. Recorded in 1998 by Billy Bragg). Anyway, this topic always makes me think of this lyric:

Quote
And all creeds and kinds and colors
Of us are blending
Till I suppose ten million years from now
We'll all be just alike
Same color, same size, working together
And maybe we'll have all of the fascists
Out of the way by then
Maybe so

The scary part of that article, though, is the idea that 20% of Americans will be seniors (and thus on Medicare and Social Security) but 2030. At a certain point, the youngsters may just have a enough voting clout to decide that we can't keep spending all their money and cut us older people off.
