Baby Boomers: They Are Our Worst Generation

Quote:
You’re tanned and healthy and living way past average life expectancy. You’ve got a defined benefit pension plan from a large company or government that was created years ago when people didn’t understand how horribly these plans can go wrong and now can’t afford to meet its liabilities, but you don’t care as long as you get your check which you don’t really need anyway. And your social security check. And your Medicare reimbursement check. You once hated the government. You smoked pot and protested against Vietnam and President Nixon. That was a long, long time ago.

Life has been good for you. You’re a baby boomer. You were born between 1946 and the early 1960’s. You had Woodstock and the Stones in the ’60s, discos and coke in the ’70s, Wall Street in the ’80s, Bill Clinton in the ’90s and now you’re retiring to Arizona and Florida on the backs of your stressed-out kids whose own children stay at home with them into their 20s because they have no jobs. Tom Brokaw once wrote a book about the greatest generation, those brave people who survived the depression and fought in World War II. Unfortunately that great generation spawned a generation of narcissists: the baby boomers.

Baby Boomers: Five Reasons They Are Our Worst Generation

https://www.google.com/amp/www.phill...?client=safari


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.
Thanks from webguy4 and coke

I suppose that if you are not allowed proper politics, it is natural to add 'generations' to the sexist and racist discussion you substitute for them.

Kiss my aging, hairy and dimpled old ass, such a whiner you are.

Since the age of television, each generation has become incrementally worse. Because the information age has displaced television considerably, there is some hope that the pendulum will swing, but I don't see much evidence of it.

And you, and tens of millions like you, support Trump who is a poster child for all of the above.

So what we have now is unfacts peddled by crooks to mugs who believe they are incredibly sophisticated?

I think it safe to say that Boomers that are the smartest generation. I think it safe to say that Boomers are the richest generation. I think it safe to say that Boomers are the best looking generation. I think it safe to say Boomers are the most frugal generation.

Boomer' parents were the Great Depression generation who passed their knowledge of frugality on to we Boomers.

My parents generation (I was born in 1949) not only survived the Great Depression but fought WWII and Korea.
So yes, they taught me many valuable lessons.

Mom was born on a farm in 24 and Dad was born in the bottoms of a big city in 25.

Dad served in the Coast Guard during WW2 who taught me to be patriotic and mom taught me to be frugal and always hold my head high.

I was born in 51, The Year of the Rabbit and under the sign of Scorpio.

My dad was born in 1917, my mom in 1925.
Dad in a tiny town in NE Arkansas and my mon in a tiny town in south-central Missouri.
Both escaped to St. louis, Mo, in the early 1940's during WWII.
