Are Millennials the Screwed Generation?

Excerpt: "Today’s youth, both here and abroad, have been screwed by their parents’ fiscal profligacy and economic mismanagement. Neil Howe, a leading generational theorist, cites the “greed, shortsightedness, and blind partisanship” of the boomers, of whom he is one, for having “brought the global economy to its knees.”"

"The whiniest generation weighs in.

Oh please...what we’ve done to future generations is a crime.


IMO, they are becoming ‘entitle-ized’, via zero’s Socialist/Marxist policies.


The Boomers only sin is working to older age. The Millennials and Whiners should have learned how to work when they were young instead of getting awards for using the potty properly (God knows the kids I see coming out of College don’t know the meaning of the “w” word).

Anyone younger than 55 who thinks he/she will see a DIME of Social Security is delusional. SS is exactly zero in my retirement planning.


Elections have consequences. They voted for Obama. Now they can enjoy the fruits of their vote.

The millenials are the biggest bunch of whiners in history. Their parents mom and dad, yes the evil boomers and some older Xer’s, both worked so their little darlings could have everything they ever wanted without having to, gasp get a job. They went into debt to pay for pre-school, college, buy iPhones, iPads, and cars so their children wouldn’t be left behind. They paid for band and sport fees so their kids could participate in all the activities at school. They ran their little league teams and made sure that everyone got a trophy and now that things are little tough for the urchins it is all mom and dad’s fault that the world won’t give them a high paying job that they are not qualified for. I am tired of listening to these little sh*ts who have never lived with out A/C, cell phones, computers, big screen HD TVs with 400 channels complain about how hard they have it. Get over yourself nobody owes you anything and as my old man told me once when I was griping, “The world isn’t fair son and the sooner you learn that the better off you will be.” Geez

I have 4 grandsons in college and I had talked to all within the last 3 weeks. They are happy to stay on their parents insurance and can't wait to start paying their fair share to assure all people have insurance and food. One is in final year med school; one final year undergrad(going to be lawyer) 1 grad this summer(going to be lawyer; 1 freshman(music major). Good for them. Hope they can afford to provide for all of us and the illegals.

What a disaster this generation is.


So my little whiney boys and girls born after 1964, we are all in this boat together. The boomers have been screwed all our working lives supporting all the “greatest generation” with SS payments tied into the cost of living along with generations of welfare folks who never paid a dime into the system.
Those of us boomers still working know there in NOTHING for us after we supported all these guys on our working backs for decades!
Quit your b@tching! It is the Socialists who kicked this ponzi scheme down our throats. Time to pay the piper.
This generational demonizing that you fall for is pure bullsht!!!


"The really dark side to all of these stories about one generation (Whatever that is exactly! Why do we let ourselves be defined by being lumped into groups?) is that they are preparing us for euthanasia. If you can convince the younger generations that their parents are useless old coots who screwed them out of their future, how much easier it is to convince them to pull the plug on the oldsters in order to save money."
And that is what sometimes happens if one gives someone else the power of life and death over them, even now. In this family, we don’t go to the medical estasblishment unless we are dying already, or need a bone set, stitches etc. We take no drugs, only natural supplements and eat fresh foods. Our legal directives are plain-do not bring us back, period. When God says time to go elsewhere, that is what I’m going to do-no way will I allow anyone but Him to be in charge of that

  1. Gotta appreciate the irony of a guy complaining that kids have it too easy and then ending with 'the world isn't fair'
