Thunderpipes: I have a 19 month old son. I know he will suffer terribly when he becomes a man and goes to college and try to get a job. National debt will be Greece levels or worse. White male, so he will be discriminated against wherever he goes. He will come of age in a world where most of the country is on welfare, living off loans from other countries. This is not rhetoric, but actual mathematically projected stuff. That is what pisses me off most about you liberals. Numbers staring you in the face, you just don't care even a little. 10 farking trillion in new debt from one President, with bad unemployment/underemployment and economic growth, and you all just sing praises. You seem like a cult. That directly hurts my child's future.


It is going to be HILARIOUS when your son grows up, becomes liberal, maybe falls in love with another man, and then disappears from your life because your outdated, paranoid, xenophobic political and social ideals embarrass and offend him.

The best part will be that he'll probably be posting on FARK under the handle "Liberal Son of Thunderpipes".

SharpieIncident: My father is the computer programmer and foreman over half of my former high school classmates in a machine manufacturing plant in my home town.

He said he's never worked with such a group of whiny pussies in his whole life.  They're 33 years old.  They're "owed" that paycheck, and working harder is a hilarious idea.  Recently, they've converted to a non-smoking facility to help keep everyone's health care premiums down, and the Righteous Rage of Entitlement for that all-important smoke break 50 times a day almost sent them to a city-wide revolution.

/Dad is old-school and crusty.  I love him for it.


People still smoke? Weird.

Graffito: Kurmudgeon: L.D. Ablo: The Boomers are fat and happy old and increasingly feeble and are not going to change their ways.

There comes a time that blaming the same old people becomes pointless.
Also, Boomer bashers generally tend to be balding 30 something wimps.
Quit whining and pull up your damn pants.

It's always comforting to have someone to blame.   Apparently, all baby-boomers were straight, white, males who simply breezed through life selfishly ruining things FOREVER.


That's OK, because all Gen-Xers and Millenials are lazy slackers who have never done a day of work in their lives and want everything handed to them on a silver platter.

Craptastic: The author makes a great point about the younger kids being willing to "go around" governmental solutions.

csb/

A few years ago, when I lived in a different state, I saw a neighborhood kid (about 20 years old) on a Sunday morning with a bunch of his friends outside. They were gathering around with a bunch of rakes and garbage bags, and looked ready to do some kind of work. So I say "Hey, Brandon! What's going on?" He tells me "I've been calling the parks department for months to clean up the trash in _local park_, and they never do anything. So we're going to do it ourselves. Do you wanna help?" I say "Sure I do! Lemme make a few calls, I bet I can get twice the people you have now."

So, we went to the park, cleaned up all the garbage: beer cans, broken fishing equipment, all kinds of stuff. It took us about three hours, but we had that place spotless and we had a great time doing it. Went to the local pizza joint afterwards, and were treated to lunch by the owner who liked what we had done. (The park was across the street from his restaurant, and he invited us all over when he saw what we were doing.)

Perhaps shamed, the parks department took better care of the place after that, the lazy bastards.

/end csb

tl;dr - Don't junk up our public spaces, and if you see someone else's trash, pick it up.


Generational theory explains this as the byproduct of a generation of "nomads" who have deep seated distrust for institutions.  Gen X came of age between the cold war and the culture wars, both byproducts themselves of the Awakening which left America feeling strong enough to do anything we wanted after WWII.  Gen X's cynicism led them, generally speaking, to become detached, individualistic, and withdrawn as much from society as possible.  This manifests as disinterest in civics and a lack of social conscience.  What's good for me is good for society, and if everyone felt that way, we'd all be doing ok.

This time of cynical withdrawal and disaffected individualism leads to a democratic crisis which is the environment this generation of Millennials grew up in.

Whereas Gen X's cynicism and distrust of the system led them to draw away from it and fall in on themselves, it leads the subsequent generation to just take action outright.  It's been really interesting to watch these kids try and navigate the absolute shiatshow that the system became in the absence of an engaged populace.

when was the last time you went behind your parents fixing their shiat?

I worry about my life, the life of my kids, and my future grandkids... the boomers typically don't give a shiat about future generations other than to exploit them of their money and livelyhoods...

I take responsibility for my life and for the lives of our future generations, i refuse to take responsibility for a generation that refused to heed the warning signs and the pleas of the people around them to not screw up...

If my son was a gay liberal, at least I would die knowing he will be cared for and never have to work. Imagine all the free stuff he would get? And I would insist he be the best at it, be the best damned gay liberal he could be.

L.D. Ablo: Doubtful.  Millennial precious snowflakes can't handle conflict and treat strong opinions as if they were hate crimes.  They cry their little eyes out, call you a bully and think that will shame you into being nice.  Go see how that strategy works against Big Oil or a Too-Big-To-Fail Bank.

The Boomers are fat and happy and are not going to change their ways.

Gen X will end up mucking it out in the trenches to make things work again.  Then the Millennials will take all the credit and pretend like it was their idea all along.


I think you've confused 'millennials' with 'boomers' there.

/Sorry, which generation went out to create OWS even while the media was constantly deriding them and the police was repeatedly showing their willingness to use excessive force?
 
2013-03-15 02:16:25 PM  
These generational threads are really funny to me, because as a medievalist absolutely none of this is new to me.  In the early 1200s a professor from the University of Paris wrote a screed about "the kids these days," in which he complained about how they congregated in the streets chattering amongst themselves about nothing, how they didn't have the dedication to really learn Latin (and that all knowledge would therefore be lost), how their crazy new stylus and reusable writing tablet technology (I am not making this up) would teach them to be lazy and make mistakes, and how the whole future in general was doomed because they were lazy, error-prone, unaware, and lacking in the right values.
So enjoy your persistent traditions!  Although some of you just seem to be pissed that people born after you are younger and will live longer than you.  It hurts, I know, that the world won't end with you, but we'll manage on somehow.

Speaking of taking credit... let's go with "more than one."

Table 2 shows that 24.4% of respondents were between the ages of 18 - 24 and another 37.9% were between the ages of 25 and 34. Close to 64.2% of respondents were younger than 34 years of age.
Over a third of respondents, or 35.8%, were older than 35 years of age including 10% over 54 years of age. While the sample is relatively young, one in three respondents is older than 35 and one in five
respondents is 45 and older.

It's funny you say "you," because I'm in the 37.9% group. But as they say around these parts, keep farking that chicken. Talking a multi-generational cause as if it was a single age group marginalizes it in the same way as the media you were complaining about did.

...Look. My point here is that, in general, Boomers are more likely to be spoiled, whining biatches than MEs. You're defending them, so yeah, I'm going to assume that's who you are. And like I said, our generation went out, knowing that the cops were going to attack us, and tried to do something to fix what the prior generations screwed up--and as much as everyone appreciates the help from older generations, to turn around and say 'look what we did!' when you got none of the  blame, at least in this conversation, is just trying to piggyback on.

Have you met GenX? They are far and away the more obnoxious generation. I'm kinda right on the line between them and Millenials, and while the young'uns can piss me off quite a bit, GenX is second only to baby boomers when it comes to whiny self-entitlement. Also, any problems with Millenials can generally be traced back to GenX.

I'm at the front end of the Millennial generation (born in 1985). The stereotypes of my generation in the thread are absurdly inaccurate.

We're more technologically savvy, more open to new ideas, more tolerant of people and cultures, are over-burdened with debt because our ancestors spent all our money and realize that we must compete internationally against someone for a job in our own country. So while we are off fighting your wars in other countries, while we doing your shiatty jobs that can barely pay the bills (let alone student loans) and paying into retirement programs we'll never get to use ...the moment we complain that just maybe things are tilted a little against us, we're slapped down, arrested and told we're lazy morons.

I wasn't defending them, I was saying that OWS was addressing issues that span generations. I'm not a huge fan of theirs, but I'll certainly acknowledge that they highlighted some important issues. I don't think, "we get the blame, so we get the credit," is reasonable. Each deserves credit based on what they did, not based on what their detractors said about them. Otherwise, you're basically letting Fox News define who gets credit.

Same war, muffin.  I didn't see too many 20 year olds in congress on 2011.  (MATH IS HARD)  Veterans are coming home, and beginning their runs on government institutions. Another decade or so and the 80-s kids will be coming to power.  Judge us for that.

I don't see Millennial military personnel leading the way for us getting into government. Especially when most of us don't want anything to do with the military, and in fact, want to see it drastically shrunk. My generation is far too weary of the old-guard-institutions. However, it would be nice to see a single Millennial in Congress. Someone to slap the budget and check books out of the current people's hands. My guess is that a more liberal area will be the first to do it. Any young person in a conservative area would have to have the same venom-rhetoric as the current batch of old congressmen, which would lose him his younger supporters that he'd need to win.

The biggest problem being that most of lives are documented. I mean, if I punched some kid back in 5th grade it was probably recorded and will then be brought out to show me as some sort of monster growing up. And we're not even getting into the things posted to Fark, Facebook, Youtube, etc. So the ones too boring and sheltered to win wouldn't have the personality and charisma to win, and the ones with a personality have too much of a tainted and documented past.

I'm fully expecting to run for Congress and a porn my gf (now wife when I run) made is found and I'll just get up at the podium and say "yeah, I made a porn. You got a problem with seeing my cock? It's a cock, half of us have one. Stop being ashamed of yours" and then either whip it out or drop the mic and walk off

...actually, I'd love to see the generation that's gonna get into government (mine) slap people around who make a stink about sexuality.

I agree, but keep in mind that the min ages for congress are 25 and 30. With any luck, the next 5-10 years could be a pretty good shakeup. Well... as long as younger people actually bother to vote. Nothing in the political sphere pisses me off quite as much as the, "Both presidential candidates suck, so I didn't vote" crowd. Do they honestly not realize there's other things on those ballots?

He will come of age in a world where most of the country is on welfare, living off loans from other countries. This is not rhetoric, but actual mathematically projected stuff. That is what pisses me off most about you liberals. Numbers staring you in the face, you just don't care even a little. 10 farking trillion in new debt from one President, with bad unemployment/underemployment and economic growth, and you all just sing praises. You seem like a cult. That directly hurts my child's future.

It is going to be HILARIOUS when your son grows up, becomes liberal, maybe falls in love with another man, and then disappears from your life because your outdated, paranoid, xenophobic political and social ideals embarrass and offend him.

The best part will be that he'll probably be posting on FARK under the handle "Liberal Son of Thunderpipes".

ProfessorOhki: The young people of the 60s and 70s, of course, being forever remembered as particularly quiet with their stances on political issues, especially war.


Those bastards figured it out, and VOTED.

HellRaisingHoosier: We're more technologically savvy, more open to new ideas, more tolerant of people and cultures, are over-burdened with debt because our ancestors spent all our money and realize that we must compete internationally against someone for a job in our own country. So while we are off fighting your wars in other countries, while we doing your shiatty jobs that can barely pay the bills (let alone student loans) and paying into retirement programs we'll never get to use ...the moment we complain that just maybe things are tilted a little against us, we're slapped down, arrested and told we're lazy morons.

Y'all can go fark yourselves....


Funny, that's exactly what my generation was saying in 1998.

IMO the current school age generation is far more compassionate than their predecessors.  Probably not as motivated to achieve, but more apt to get along.  The intelligence gap is wider between students; there are still exceptional kids and poor performers, but they are not as likely be found in the same classroom like they were 20 years ago.

kimmygibblershomework: YOU are one of them.  Re-read my comment and then look at the buttfarking retarded shiate you wrote.  Dickface.  I love the lack of reading comprehension on this site so you are reminded why you posted the comment in the first place.
Some of em just want to fingerbang all day, others want to video that fingerbanging to brag to friends, and a third just wants to sit there and watch these idiots fingerbang or put ads in the webpage to pay for more fingerbanging videos.  You want us to put our money on the third guy?

We need another draft to thin the ranks out a bit.  Ya know, once they run out of gays and women getting killed.


....you just went on a rant about teenagers fingerbanging. Did you not get any as a teenager? Teens do stupid shiat. and that third guy filming this fingerbanging fiasco and making money? Is he not a job creator? You're paying for the shiat, he's making money, teen 1 and female teen 1 are both going at it because it's fun to fark and you have a problem with this why? Teens have sex, every generation's teens have had sex when they were teens.

A draft may be a good idea if you're at the top of the list. Those that piss you off go last. Why? Because life is cruel and you should've figured that out by now. We need less dumbasses like you creating laws and governing because your mindset is what has farked us over for the last 50 years

HellRaisingHoosier: I'm at the front end of the Millennial generation (born in 1985). The stereotypes of my generation in the thread are absurdly inaccurate.

We're more technologically savvy, more open to new ideas, more tolerant of people and cultures, are over-burdened with debt because our ancestors spent all our money and realize that we must compete internationally against someone for a job in our own country. So while we are off fighting your wars in other countries, while we doing your shiatty jobs that can barely pay the bills (let alone student loans) and paying into retirement programs we'll never get to use ...the moment we complain that just maybe things are tilted a little against us, we're slapped down, arrested and told we're lazy morons.

What's funny is that every single thing you see Gen-Xers saying about Millenials here is all the same shiat Boomers said about Gen-Xers.  And it was just as untrue then.  But people never learn.

Every generation since the second has been the end of civilization.  And yet, it rarely happens.

Not getting the job you WANT =/= no work available. You would be surprised what happens when you are willing to move states.

No way we can fail as bad as the baby boomers, so I'm not worried too much. Are you guys still fighting the culture wars? Gen X just needs to admit that my generation isn't that far off from theirs, we are basically a spin off.

Which is neither the end of civilization nor the Millennials' fault.

How again did the baby boomers fail?  Please be specific.
I mean, the cold war is over.  Civil rights for women and minority men are now the norm.  Baby boomer engineers built the internet. Those are hardly failures.

Witness the failure of Obama's great work.  Yet another entry into a system of lifelong paw hand outs, living in government supplied housing, and further draining our struggling healthcare system, without any hope of independence or becoming something better.  This is truly the liberal paradise - entitlement from birth.

Moving requires capital and a job. Most jobs I saw aren't paying relocation. North Dakota is great but has no housing that's affordable.

That said, there are a lot of other reasons why I'm stuck in California. Family obligations for one. Also doesn't help when life throws you so many curveballs you can't get a job for longer than six months at a time (none of it your fault - I'm talking like losing a job because of a double-homicide that resulted in a store closing, for example, resulting in a health condition that now makes it even harder for me to keep/get a job).

Tl;dr version - I got the short of end of the stick. I'm doing the best I can with it, and giving what I have an abundance of (time, so I volunteer a lot at church, and I'm planning on getting a volunteer position at a child development center soon). So. . . yeah, judge all you want, but anyone would probably do the same in my position considering all I have to deal with.

HotWingAgenda: thisispete: Being born in '79, some measures place me with the Xers, others with the Millennials. Either way, I sit on the cusp between the generations.

Ah, a fellow Echo-Boomer.  Anyone born to parents who were born during the post-WWII economic boom in the 50's is in our generation.


So if my parents were born in '43 (pre-economic boom) and I was born in '80, what is that called?

So I've tried yelling out "YOLO" sarcastically and not a single person I know has any idea what the hell I'm talking about. And these are people that generally get my humor.
