Procrastigeneration

Recently I found myself really disliking the phrase "The children are our future". It implies to me that the person saying it is no longer able to effect change and can do no more but nurture the next generation. It is almost an admission of defeat. If this saying gets passed from one generation to the next, will anyone ever do anything?

I don't like that phrase either. So now every time I hear someone say it, I just pretend that by "our future", they mean their future. As in, instead of being put into old folks homes, their children are going to care for them when they're too old to care for themselves.

Breeders with delusions of immortality, no less. Feh!
