The younger generation is not going to like it, but Mom and Dad will be arriving soon with their luggage.

The way it is going now, it will be the younger generation never packing their luggage and leaving Mom and Dad.

If it’s not a boomer program, why did the boomers insist on keeping it? You’ve had 24 years of boomer presidents to get rid of it.

Absolutely...Some of these people just burp up comments without thought.

Compared to my folks generation, most boomers have been left with a derailed country, lost jobs, lost homes, lost medical insurance, bankrupt retirement plans, lost investments, lawless borders and a corrupt government...Then their told government looted Social Security, it's bankrupt and they might have to work till they drop dead....

My mom would have never been able to deal with what millions are dealing with today...She was one of the millions of stay at home moms, who never had to work a day in her life outside the home..She and much of her generation went though the late 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s living pretty damn easy...I'm not hold that against her, I'm just telling it like it is..

Don’t really sympathize. Imagine you’re trying to get married for the FIRST time but you’re shelling out SS Tax.

I’m sorry you don’t love your partner enough to sacrifice for them.

Could you live on about 300 dollars a week?

One of the best moves I ever made was joining the Air National Guard when my active duty time was up. An extra $2000 a month and full use of any military base amenity for life. We buy most of our food at the commissary at a 40 percent savings over the civilian economy. And I can fly space A for nothing. Yeah, best move I ever made.

A-Men. A-Men.

I get by on half that!

Boomers have never known hard time - good thing they are teaching us!

What a goofy post.

Boomers seem to be the generation that is trying to fix it, challenging it, yet again, people like you associate it as a “boomer” program.

“millions of stay at home moms, who never had to work a day in her life outside the home”

That sums up the boomer perspective perfectly. Yeah, stay at home moms contribute nothing.

Right. When did Clinton fix it? When did Bush fix it? When did Obama ‘fix’ it?

You’ve had 24 years already since 1992 to fix it. What, are you going to get it right now?

It is a boomer program - you’ve had your chance to fix it and you all failed.

Gee, you sound like that generation between the WWII generation and boomer Sarah Palin.

The generation of the 1960s, the Beatles, and Stones, and Jane Fonda, and William Ayers, and Jimi Hendrix.

> What is so surprising about this data. The country celebrates debt and interest payments and the baby boom has no concept of hard times.

Get yourself out of debt, stop paying interest and watch your savings grow quickly.

Oh yes we do. Lived on the streets many times; some of them when I didn’t own a car and had to sleep wherever I could; had no obey and food and remember the pangs of hunger, the feeling of freezing winter, hopeless with no place to go, having to wash my hair in the sinks of service station bathrooms and having jaegers hand dryer to dry my hair ...so you don’t know what you are talking about...: )

I’ve come a long way since then but Obama is heading me back in that direction and I’m trying o fight him but he keeps throwing irons in the fire...

BTW - I don’t owe anything but the mortgage and a small credit card bill that comes in every month that always paid off in full. Funds are still going down even after cutting corners in just about anyway I can. We just seem to live in a world where everyone now charges a premium price or the government foists a new tax, fee, or surcharge to keep draining our coffers lower and lower.

Sure, if I did drugs, got married and joined a commune!

Coming from someone who said stay at home moms are worth it? That’s a badge of honor.

LOL, Social Security is a "boomer program", and when a president is of a certain age, he is supposed to end a program that there is every reason will remain permanent in some form.

Seems history is repeating itself. Every young mom I know, including my own daughters, have college degrees but do not work. They want to be stay at home moms. Such luxury was alien to me but then they are all married to successful men. I was a divorced working mom. Maybe they don't want to be me but Gen X-ers are lazy is my take.

“Try working full time to make ends meet”

I would be in heaven. Full time hours, with regular daytime hours with one employer? Where can I sign up?

“also raising kids, and keeping a home like millions of boomer moms”

You think I want to be single? I don’t make enough yet to be able to support a family.

“This is not old America”

Right, we look at Ozzie and Harriet and see a happy, well adjusted family. Then we look at the drugged out craziness of Woodstock. We long for Ozzie and Harriet - but what we get is drugged out stoner and hippy culture! No thanks!

Part of the solution to the SS problem is the clamor to legalize those who have stolen into the country. The expectation is that many are young and will be paying into the Ponzi Security System, to allow it to float a little longer before it crashes.

You can’t even quote accurately or simply evaded what was said.

See the tag line.
