Interesting article. anyone see resemblance to a poster here? And that article looks written by female? coincidence?

there’s no denying the state of the world has taken an astonishing downturn during the Boomers’ reign. But instead of taking responsibility for the current state of the world, this bloated, all-consuming generation prefers to focus its ire on Millennials – whom they accuse of being selfish, lazy, immoral and entitled among other sins.
we only have Boomers to thank for raising and nurturing such a Frankenstein generation.

Not gonna lie, I hate Millenials. This thread just supports my position even more. I grew up thinking Boomers were so cool. Unfortunately, they raised these self-aggrandizing monsters...
Really? I've always thought of the boomers as the Donald Trumps of the world. Silver spoon fed types enjoying a trove of wealth their entire lives, primarily given to them by their parents, or entirely borrowed from the lives of millenials without much consent.

Its the boomers' parents generation you should be admiring. WW2 and then came back to build a nation. Thats hard work.

Every generation has been better off than the previous generation at the same age. How can you say that the current generations have it so rough when they have more (want more) than any previous generation?

GOT wasn’t set in 1000. More like 1500s if you can compare it to reality.

Agree 100%......millennials are the result of helicopter parenting. Reap what you sow.
hehe yeah... I like to think I was pretty sheltered... But kids have it good these days!!! MY niece and nephew have cooking classes, art class, KUng FRIGGIN FU!!!

When I was a kid... Art class was my parents buying me water colors and laying out newspaper so I Can act a foo on the canvas...
Kung Fu was hanging out at the park and playing that stupid "who gets tackled first" rough housing game that boys played. No kicks or punches. Just grabs and tackles.
OR the infamous "british bulldog" game. That was a thing back then...

I'd like to deny that please. :) Why do people always believe that the state of the world took a downturn, let alone an "astonishing" one? Exactly what went down?

I don't know what's worse - boomers blaming all of the world's problems on millennials, or millennials blaming all of the world's problems on boomers :rolleyes:

Can you blame teenagers to late 20s adults for ruining the world?

What about 50 to 70 year olds?

Its very easy to pick the more feasible one if you really want to. lol

Look, Ontarians and Canadians have voted in the party most likely to ramp up governmental spending.

I am just waiting for Trudeau 2.0 to announce the Quadrillion deficit to get us going and to give millenials the same thing that Trudeau 1.0 gave the baby boomers.

We already voted him in. Give the people what they obviously want.

Think bigger Justin. As you proclaimed, the budget will balance itself. Quadrillion in spending initiatives. You know you want to.

If you don't do it, how can you expect us to vote in Trudeau 3.0 ?

Maintain the family Legacy. If not Quadrillions, at least Trillions.

First things first, legalize weed then we'll all be too mellow to care about the debt/deficit Winking Face.
Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
