BOOMERBROADcast

Baby Boomer's social commentary on life in OUR sixties for those who rocked life in THE sixties.

Now’s the time for a great American President

6 Comments

Where’s a John F. Kennedy or a Franklin Roosevelt when the American people really need one. After watching the Trump/Clinton debate last night, I came away with one thought: thank heaven I don’t have to cast a vote in the American election. I wouldn’t want to bear any responsibility for the future of the United States based on my choice on election day. Whatever the outcome, the results are going to be scary for the American people, although I would love to be proven wrong.  It’s amazing how they arrived at two equally disliked candidates, but that’s democracy at work. I can see the book just waiting to be written: “The Rise and Fall of the United States of America”.

Then, this morning I burst out laughing when I read the editorial cartoon in today’s Globe and Mail called “Pick one” by Brian Gable. I couldn’t have said it better.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis

  1. Many of Obama’s hopes & dreams for improving America were blocked by the Republicans and now Trump leads their party…….democracy at its worse. Maybe a dose of Trump is what America needs. In a few years, Americans will realized just how great Obama was as their President.

  2. Hillary certainly has her faults but she thinks complete thoughts and speaks in completed sentences.
    People have the option of agreeing or disagreeing with her.
    Trump thinks money and talks in words.

  3. It must be really great watching this US election unfold from so far, yet so near. For the first time since I became an American citizen, I wish I didn’t have to vote. You’re right Lynda , it’s scary. I already wrote on my website why I think it would be more than scary if Trump became President of US. My article is Trump, Brexit and the Politics of Hate at http://www.joannaelm.com. Wonder if you, or any of your readers would agree with me?
