Hey ladies, I hope the free birth control Obama gives you is worth it.
"F*#& for the Future!"
And it is also very hard to imagine how one can possibly expect government spending to shrink significantly.
Yep. It will happen, but it never happens voluntarily.
There are old people that are more worthless than others. They are worth less in this order:
5. Military Veterans
The whole world will be better when these racist old people with their old morals and ways are dead and gone.
If only this article were written in English.
First, let me adjust my flame proof suit, then an observation:
One fact unmentioned - when all us old farts retire, who is going to produce the money required to even half run society?
Yesterday afternoon I standing on the floor of a friend of mine’s small manufacturing company. They were behind and several of his ‘key’ employees were busting their butt to catch up. Meanwhile when 4 pm rolled around, most employees left.
Of course you know the punch line. Him, me, the people staying to catch up all have one similar characteristic: gray. Gray hair, gray beards, wrinkles, etc. Those that just had too many things to do and left - young.
We’re standing there watching this and he says to me, “if I ever decide I want to retire, I have no idea what to do with this place - sell it off I guess.” His own kid was one of the ones that left.
I am not trying to sound like an old fart, but I still see too much of the water being carried by gray, and way too little interest by those without gray. And while I plan to work a lot longer - all the gray will croak someday. Then what happens?
ONOZ! The sky is falling!!
There are some important subdivisions in the generations that are going to matter soon.
In cultural terms, if not pure demographics, the Baby Boomers (I) were born from 1945-1955. Those that followed them, from 1955-1965 or so, are sometimes called Boomers II, or “Generation Jones”, and they have something of an overlap with Boomers I on one side and Generation X on the other.
That is, the earlier Boomers II got some cultural “trickle down” from the Boomers I, though it was second hand, not direct participation and experience. The later Boomers II are far more in tune with Generation X, both of which began to have to suffer the cultural burden of Boomers I.
This matters today, because Boomers II and Generation X do not personally expect what the Boomers I expect, and they aren’t too thrilled about paying for it, either. They see Boomers I as takers, and they are in no mood to give, just so the Boomers I can take.
Boomers II and Generation X are cynical when it comes to things like Social Security and Obamacare, because they know that government is just taking all the money and spending it on other things, with zero intention of ever paying it back.
So they are looking forward to Boomers I losing their political strength over time, because when they do, they are likely going to be cut loose and told to fend for themselves.
“You were greedy, demanding and arrogant your whole lives, so now it is time for working past when you wanted to retire, and learning how to beg to make ends meet. Welcome to the future you built for yourselves, Baby Boomers I.”
Obama sees Boomer Grandmothers wearing babushkas sweeping out Red Square (Chicago) and the Grandfathers dead.
That’s going to be me - an old Granny in a Babushka hanging out on the street corner with her cronies...
A tail-end Baby Boomer with her sh!t together :) (For the most part.)
I know it may not MATTER if things are REALLY bleak, world-wide...
