Commentary: Pretentious acceptance — Liberal approval of gays is insincere

I can honestly say that I love Generation Y. Contrary to what your great grandpa might say, I don’t believe that we will be remembered as the social media consumed, instant gratification seeking millennials. Our era will be celebrated as the generation of acceptance. More specifically, we will be commemorated as those who created equality for individuals of all sexual orientations.

Several people, including Buzz Berney of Conconully, have talked about how early ranchers learned to produce hay to feed their livestock in the winter instead of depending upon open rangelands after the devastating cow-killing winter of 1889-1890.
