The most self-regarding generation in history has another gem for us:

Many baby boomers don't plan to leave their children an inheritance

Upending the conventional notion of parents carefully tending their financial estates to be passed down at the reading of their wills, many baby boomers say they instead plan to spend the money on themselves while they're alive.

In a survey of millionaire boomers by investment firm U.S. Trust, only 49% said it was important to leave money to their children when they die. The low rate was a big surprise for a company that for decades has advised wealthy people how to leave money to their heirs.

Gosh, it's almost as if they were selfish or something.

...so this story doesn't surprise me at all.

East Naples man knocks out mom after she complained of his martial arts

An East Naples man is accused of knocking his mother unconscious after she became angry with him for practicing martial arts in the house.

Cory William Morrel, 27, of the 7800 block of Regal Heron Circle, was arrested Friday by Collier County sheriff’s deputies at home.

According to a Sheriff’s Office report, deputies were dispatched to Morrel’s home in reference to a woman who was kicked in the head and was knocked unconscious for five minutes.

When deputies arrived, they said Morrel’s mother was unable to recall what happened and appeared disoriented and nervous. She yelled several times at Morrel, asking him what happened, reports said.

Morrel told deputies that while practicing martial arts in the living room, he accidentally kicked a wall causing a scuff mark. He said his mother became angry with him and began yelling profanity at him.

It is unclear what happened next due to redacted information regarding Morrel kicking his mother in the head. However, Morrel said he then called 911 when she became unconscious.

Look folks, when Obama unveils his hither-to unknown jobs initiatives, initiatives that have apparently taken 2-and-1/2 years to create, about which he's never given a hint, they're so amazing and innovative and foolproof; when he gives his speech and wows the Democratic establishment and the Media (but I repeat myself) with their self-evident beauty and effectiveness; when he finally takes this huge dump at the podium, if they are the same old stuff he's been pushing for the last 2-and-1/2 years, the Republicans are going to reject it. If it isn't likely to do any good, and likely to do harm, then they'll reject it.

Boy, the Democrats are sure hopeful about this speech. They really hope that somehow Obama will pull something out of his nethers that will kick-off his reelection campaign in a great way.

Because, you know they don't realy give a shit about jobs or the economy, except as it effects their electoral chances.
