MC: But it doesn't for those 55+ NOW - and that's what many voters in that age group care about - what happens to them - if they use up all the resources for the next generation, "tough sh*t" seems to be their answer.

Sadly, this comment is often true. Women (or anyone) over 55 grew up in an era when women were SAHM's, and often deferred to their husbands on such matters. They may also be damaged by their often inferior education. The result is someone who gave more thought to who would be the Homecoming Queen than to politics, or what dress to wear to the prom, or isn't it awful that nasty girl got knocked up and went to stay with her aunt Polly for six months.

I deal with these women in our drapery business, and they are often 99.47% self-centered.*
