Don't you mean the million fake news website age? Mostly misinformation, as far as I can see.

In general, TV does a way better job.
Thanks from iolo

IMO this is the #1 reason to get rid of socialized medicine. The baby boomers have fucked up the economy, environment, education, government basiclly they were given. They have left a wake of debt and destruction behind them that will take generations to repair, if it is even reparable. Now that that they are living well past their shelf life in spite of their selfish lifestyles they want everyone else to pay to keep them alive. I say NO!!! You should have planned ahead.

Maybe if you guys would have focused on the things that had made aging gracefully a pleasant experience for previous generations we wouldn't be in this mess. But you guys neglected family and ran through marriages like the shake of the month. You created the single mother plague that we have today and the prison culture. Now there is not the traditional saftey net the the elderly that people in other cultures and the past had. Family. You destroyed the economy and inflated property so dramaticly that your grandchildren cannot afford to buy a home. You fucked up the education system so much that your grandchildren are living w/ your kids, tens of thousands of dollars in debt for worthless degrees. Those could have been, should have been your rooms for you to live off your end days in. You decided that an estate tax was a good thing so when you die your kids will have to sell the house that you leave them (unless the bank takes it) to pay the taxes instead of just keeping it in the family. You have systematically squandered the gifts that were given to you leaving your great grandchildren w/ the tab. Now you want social security and Medicare ontop of it. For shame.
Excellent points. Notice no one argues with them. They use anecdotal bullshit but can not refute the message.
Thanks from Sabcat

Why top at Trump? I do not know what the number is exactly, but I would bet its well over 80% of our elected officials are baby boomers.

Whining GenX pussies.


The Living Years (Remastered Version)
Mike + The Mechanics
Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Oh, crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got

You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defence

Say it loud (say it loud), say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late (it's too late) when we die (oh when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts

So don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be okay

So say it loud, say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
Because it's too late, it's too late (it's too late) when we die (oh when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye.
In the living years.
Mike and the mechanics.

But yet we squeezed in the time to fuck you into existence.

Apparently we failed in teaching your punk ass respect for your elders.

Who do you think created the education system that gave you your sissy attitude?

Your generation can't hold the used jock straps of my generation.

My parents generation would have shipped you off to a psychiatric ward as a defect.

I agree. TV does and always has done a much more effective job of misinformation.

Boomer' parents were the Great Depression generation who passed their knowledge of frugality on to we Boomers.
If this is true then they shouldn't need public assistance.
