No problem. I thought it was only confusion from a Xer...
but I *am* an "Xer"
Ha, ha, confused ya again. I knew you were, but according to the boomers, we xers have life confused. We owe them our property because they exist.
I will never become my parents. My parents are highchair tyrants, constantly seeking self actualization, and so bought into secular humanism and moral relativism that all I can do is pray for their souls. I have so much more that matters, and so much more real wisdom than they ever can hope to have. I am not exactly young - I am arguably a "tweener" (but one who played a very direct role in the initial formation of early Gen X cultural trends) and have now lived long enough to evaluate myself Vs my parents coldly, logically and compassionately. The harm done by the Boomers, not to mention certain of the tail end of the Silents, to this country and to Western Civilization, shall take many decades to heal. To be fair, the Boomers are not the villians. They were conned, duped and destroyed by utopian intellectuals, Communists and other vermin, who specifically targetted them for such operations, as a means of undermining Western society. It almost worked.
GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK. NOW.
You know what, dear? By the time the government is done sucking me dry for Social Security, Medicare, etc., which I probably will never see, You will have been paid back in spades.
They said the average senior citizen currently on Social Security will spend the equivalent of the money they paid in with in 7 years. In other words, if you retire at 65 and live to be over 72 years old, after your 72nd birthday, you will be a Social Security leach.
1. I wrote that 10 days ago and then left the thread.
2. I have retirement.
