The term boomer was for the baby boomers who were born from after World War II to 1964. The early boomers were very much hippies as they would have been of age for the Vietnam War. Now, I'm a late boomer and, unfortunately, a lot of us got caught up in the greed that Ronald Reagan seemed to be offering us. I can go in my Facebook and be horrified at how many of my old classmates are trumpeting the crazy conspiracy theories.

Anyway, a lot of those hippies (though not all thankfully) eventually became conservative as they got older. If you don't believe me, check out the history of one Jerry Rubin, who went from radical left-wing Yippie to Reagan supporting stockbroker.

Thankfully millenials and zoomers will be too poor to become yuppies.

Biden faces deadline for release of more JFK assassination papers

The US government has continually balked at releasing many of these papers in the "interest of national security". What could realistically be contained in these papers that compromise national security? Is that really just code for "makes our intelligence agencies look terrible/evil"?

Maybe we'd finally find out why George HW was in Dallas that day.

JFK was killed by accidental fire by one of his secret servicemen. The US doesn't want that on public record so they're holding stuff back. You'll find official accounts of how the secret service men that day were overworked and also partied the night before. Their nerves were shot (no pun intended). When Oswald started shooting, they panicked and returned fire because they didn't know where the shots were coming from and one of them hit the president.

Interesting theory - I've kinda resigned myself to never knowing the whole story. After all, what difference will it make to my life if I knew one way or the other?
