Skip to comments.The Revenge of the “Worst Generation”
Posted on 03/05/2011 10:04:19 AM PST by Wanderer659
I have often said to my mother, who is a baby boomer and liberal, that my generation (Gen X), would have to clean up the mess that her generation left behind. As time wears on, that statement rings more and more true.

Most Freepers are Boomers..
“Most Freepers are Boomers..”
But, unfortunately....most Boomers are NOT Freepers....
I’m not sure there are enough of us to clean up the mess. X is the smallest generation, after all. What I think is likely is that the Boomers will pass, but X will be eclipsed quickly in influence by the much more numerous Millenials.
Don’t blame all of us, please.
Indeed--by forming groups such as Young Americans for Freedom, Youth for Goldwater, Youth for Reagan, and Young America's Foundation.
I don’t, and I don’t think the author does either.
Look at the bottom of the post.
As a fellow X’er, I don’t think there are enough of us to deal with the Boomers, let alone the echo folks. Even combined, there are less of us than Boomers put together.
Of course not all baby boomers are guilty of this. That's what I got from the statement anyway.
Tell it to these boomers, youngun - as soon as your ears get dry.
A segment, as it were.
That's true. Here's the Disclaimer by the author of the piece:
"Disclaimer: Not every boomer was a petulant brat. Lets just say that petulant brats are over-represented in that demographic."
The Boomers were only the “First Worst” generation. Every generation after them has been bad too. They were the first generation of spoiled brats, but not the last. Just look at the current young adults: they whine about having to “fix the mess” while campaigning for a Marxist who hates America and the free market and actually promised to make energy costs skyrocket. How do they plan to fix the mess when they vote for people that want to destroy the mechanism that would actually have a chance at fixing things? Hopey Changitude?
Here’s a news flash for them: our economy runs on energy. When you restrict energy, you stop the machine. When you restrict energy to fight a boogeyman like Global Cooling/Warming/Climate Change, you are destroying the ability to “fix the mess” for the sake of a lie.
All “their guy” promises is more of the same empty thoughts that characterize the young adult boomers of the late 1960s. In fact, the people they vote for take their marching orders from elderly boomers. The generation that votes for Obama is just the boomers redux...minus the work ethic and morals that people born in the 1950s once had.
I have to agree, the off-spring of the greatest generation has done a lot of damage.
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
Add me if you would, please.
It's the lousy libtard ideas that are causing all the trouble, and any generation that has accepted those ideas is responsible for the consequences.
I’m a Gen X person myself (1966) .. well barely.
Evidently Gen X and Gen Y put Obama in office.
How much damage do you think that has done to the Republic?
