Find me a group of Boomers doing this for young people. I'd love to see it.

austerity101: Find me a group of Boomers doing this for young people. I'd love to see it.


Man, I get your frustration, and I'm empathetic, but that kinda stuff happens all the time, and plenty of boomers are the drivers if those fundraisers. Pancake breakfasts, rummage sales, charity poker runs, and yes GoFundMe campaigns, that kind of shiat happens all over the country and everyday for some kid, or poor family. Maybe there's no random group of sarcastic baby boomers populating a jokey message board that takes the piss out of a situation while donating money in a sufficiently similar way to convince you, to push past your evident and oft expressed outrage, but they're not all greedy assholes. I've got my problem with the spawn of the so-called greatest generation, too, but come on? This guy gets money towards a liver transplant. Some inside-joke weirdos get to feel good about themselves for being a bit less scared and sad, and a bit more generous that day. So, look around, you'll see it, a generous spirit coming from lots of more mature folks. I promise. I mean, they generally ain't the ones flying Trump flags from brodozers, but just skirt those freaks and you'll see them.

I particularly like the sarcastic comments they all left as they were donating. It's like the most internet thing ever.

You've heard of Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

How many people have heard of Gary Rider and the Pennsylvania Air Compressor?

"he asked rhetorically."

I'm so glad they included those 3 words in the article because otherwise my fevered mind would have probably tried to come up with an answer.

I wasn't making that kind of money when I was twelve, but then again I wasn't exposed to magnesium and all that other stuff either. And now he needs a liver transplant?  I've heard there are more fun less productive ways to destroy your health and need a new liver by the time you're in your mid-50s.

Genuinely heartwarming to see people helping out a stranger in need, but how farked up is it that this man was selling his few belongings in the desperate hope of buying himself some healthcare. And how many other guys in the same situation are looking at the $175 in their gofundme knowing no facebook group is going to ride ironically to their rescue. Goddamn.

It is absolutely disgusting that this is how the health care system of the United States of America works.
