Here’s what I’m pissed about today: The It-Sucks-To-Be-Me Generation.
Here’s why we “can’t stop whining about how the economy is screwing them.” YOU FUCKING ARE SCREWING US. Every generation that’s alive has got more out of society and money than we have. Social Security is no longer a safety net. It’s future existence is uncertain. Pensions don’t really exist anymore. Now it’s all “save your own damn money for retirement” from the older genrations. Why is it a freaking miracle now when we have health insurance, instead of part of the expected compensation package?
Baby boomers (I assume the author of the article is one as well) are a generation of fucking retarded hypocritical leeching pricks.
Boomers have had it very very easy. They have also done a lot of damage to the world with their greed, something GenY will have to deal with. GenY will cope, humans always do, but don’t tell us we have it easier or as easy as GenX and the Boomers had it. We will have to compete against China and India and deal with dwindling resources. Something GenX and the Boomers did not have to do.
Here’s their thought process:
Social Security? Oh, you’re not guaranteed shit, but don’t worry if you’re a baby boomer/one of us — yours is guaranteed, and we’ll go deep into fucking debt to make sure of that.
The War? Oh, don’t worry, you’re too young to understand the issues. We’ll just stick it on our debt.
Health Care? We can’t pay for yours, we have to pay for ours first, since we’re getting old and decrepit.
This has abso-fucking-lutely nothing to do with “graduating into a recession.” You know why? Excuse the all caps, but I really do want to scream this to the author: YOUR GENERATION IS DEFICIT SPENDING LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW TO SECURE YOUR OWN COMFORTABLE FUTURE. You people take and take and take, reform and reform and reform, and just stick it on the federal deficit with the expectation that it’ll get paid off. And who’s going to pay it off? Certainly not fucking YOU PEOPLE. You’ll be sitting back, collecting your social security checks (while we have to actually save for our retirement and plan for loved ones whose social benefits will be cut to pay for your social security), telling us to stop being a bunch of whiners. We’re not whiners. Remember that “money education” you said people should get? The thing you didn’t know about so wanted it required education and spewed words explaining how important it was and you are fucked because you didn’t get it? We got it. We actually understand what’s going on, realize it’s not sustainable, and want it to change. You know what’s fucking ridiculous? When a software engineer at Google can’t afford anything other than a cardboard box. Yeah, you can say “poor baby” because they got wedding presents, but that’s just not an argument of any sort. Who’s buying the wedding presents? Friends? Coworkers? Aunts? Uncles? Parents? Grandparents?
But you baby boomers, who had the cheapest housing in the history of ever (and rode the subsequent rise to afford bigger and better housing), get a big throbbing malice-boner thinking of someone who’s smarter and better off than you at the same age not being able to afford the same that you could. It gives you a sense that you still have power and are still useful and that we’re not going to be able to put you out to pasture so soon.
This is generational warfare. You want us to suffer. You had to go through some shit, and now you want us to have worse. Why? For one, you imagine it worse than it was. Second, you don’t want us to have it easy. You think that we have to “earn” stuff the same way that you earned it. But that has never been the case. People “earned” their way very differently in the 1800’s than they do today. When you were growing up, there was no internet. While that may indicate an “easier life” for you, it means that we’re expected to know, and to be able to use it. Along with every single skill you ever learned. That’s not easier, that’s harder. We’re required to do more, and yet that’s still not good enough. Cars are more expensive to purchase and maintain, with more expensive gas and more expensive maintinence. But that’s not your problem. That’s ours. You had the luxury of traveling long distances for jobs cheaper for money. But we are supposed to have it harder than you, and we do, and that’s still not enough.
Fuck you all. Seriously. Baby Boomers need to get over their selfish “best generation ever” complex. You are a bunch of assholes, and we hate you for very valid reasons. Not the least of which, you’re irreparably fucking up a country you’ve force-fed us to believe is the greatest on earth. Not for much longer, if you keep running the show. Just die already.
