Fucking Baby Boomers

Via MSNBC:

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – This city’s famed marijuana bars have weathered many challenges over the years and are still smoking. But now they face an unwelcome blast of fresh air: On July 1, the Netherlands will be one of the last European countries to ban smoking in bars and restaurants in compliance with EU law.

This is happening all over the world.  The baby boomers are clamping down on everything.  I’m ok with the whole no smoking in restaurants law, but if you’re going to go to a bar, there’s nothing wrong with having to deal with a little smoke.  These law pretend that they’re protecting the little kiddies, but let’s be serious, if you’re taking your kid to a sports bar, than you have issues as a parent.  Furthermore, I’m sick and tired of the boomers wanting to make up for their youthful indiscretions, by clamping down on my generation.  You know what, fuck off!  What really bugs me is that I never made it to Amsterdam in my travels around Europe, and now it looks like Amsterdam’s salad days are over.

Now what really irks me is that marijuana is illegal in the states.  This is something that needs to be rectified with a quickness.  Now I don’t have the stats on hand, but if you want more information of drugs in the U.S. check out these two books by Jefferson M. Fish here and here.  The fact remains, however, that weed is a much, much safer and useful drug, than both alcohol and cigarettes.

  1. Hadn’t read this one and as I enjoy type in a smoked filled room I wonder when the day will come that I can see the sun while I partake.
