Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social aspects that directly effects Gen-Reagan/Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.

I'm just countin' down the years, man, just countin' down the years...
As a baby boomer (born 1954), I call us the "worthless" generation. We're spoiled brats!
If we can just get past the next two presidential elections and keep a bonafide Boomer from winning, I believe the nation will be spared. (And I say this as someone who was born in the early 1950s.)
----consider that they are about to turn into "greedy geezers"----
Here we go again!
Just wait till that generation wants to retire and there aren't enough people to work and pay for that.
Looks like confiscation of wealth by way of the death tax will have to stay to even begin to pay for Social Security.
Of course, in less than a decade, Democrats will enact their new euthanasia plan to weed out expenses I am sure.
The way I see it is that if we can kill babies through abortion, is it that much of a leap for them to kill the elderly if they become a burden?
Whose us, Kemosabe
No, many of us have been against the Baby Boomers for quite some time. The rest are starting to wake up.
There is an exception to this and that is a select few who actually took up arms in defense of the nation.
We no longer want to protect the borders and we have filled our children's heads with crap about peace love and happiness.
Don't you know it!!
As the high costs of Medicare and Social Security make it difficult to impossible for working people to pay their (confiscatory) taxes, Baby Boomer elderly will become second class citizens. They will be attacked and murdered in their homes to reduce their numbers, and the police will turn a blind eye.
Then euthanasia will be legalized, first state by state and then nationally, to take care of the Baby Boomer problem. Elderly family members will be encouraged to "take the needle" so that property can be passed on to family members whose need is greater. Simply sign the official government kiss-off form, drop your elderly parent off at the hospital, and get your hands on that property.
Pro-lifers will be caught between their beliefs and balance sheets. They will suggest that Social Security cease to be a check, but changed to payment-in-kind. Social Security villages would be set up on abandoned government installations, and indigent Baby Boomers would be fed, clothed and housed at government expense, but no money would change hands. US Geriatric Hospitals, merged with the VA Hospitals, would take care of their medical care and be a substitute for Medicare, which would be abolished due to its high costs.
It will take another generation before family ties can be estabished on a basis of trust without the elderly fearing that younger family members will drop them off at the government-run suicide parlor to get their money.
I'm doing my best to turn my kids and other young people against the older generations. If selfish old people continue to demand to be 'taken care of' by the government, my children and grandchildren's generations are going to be paying the bills. If they are going to have political clout, they are going to have to form a strong voting bloc to take on the seasoned citizens stranglehold on political power.
oh puleeze. Yeah, and genx is selfish and the beatniks were dirty YADAYADAYADA.....
"Here's an excuse to argue!! Ready, begin!!"
Here, let's try something else.....
WOMEN ARE SMARTER, ARE BETTER PARENTS and HANDLE MONEY IN A SUPERIOR MANNER THAN MEN!!!!
There. REALLY stir up some crap.
The reason you are hated is because you are going to break the SS system. You need to work until you die.
LOL It's starting to tick me off, too. In addition to the above, we're also the most taxed generation in history.
We're the ones who floated those student loans for you. We're still floating those loans.
We're the ones who paid and paid and paid since our youth to support our Grandparents and then our Parents.
Now that it nears our turn in the Sun, everyone hates us. Now that there is light at the end of the tunnel, they're trying to change Income Tax laws so that we'll continue to pay thru the teeth.
I'm proud of us. We've supported half the dam world with our elbow grease.
It seems to me the only spoiled, shallow generation is the one that now doesn't want to do for us what we've always done for the rest....and we did it without whining.
Don't worry boombers we'll let enough illegal aliens in to pay social security and take care of you.
They tore up the maps to the norms of the society and then said " go ... we freed you" Well maybe we didn't want to be "freed" like that. Now it is up to my generation to put back the peices of the maps into some kind of recognizable system before the whole framework deteriorates away.
Yes I am bitter at that generation and I will make sure that it goes as hard for them when they are the most dependent and vulnerable.
