    So baby boomers....

    (1) Go to college dirt cheap, then jack up the price about 700% by the time I attended, (2) traded the idea of sane responsible banking for a "live for the moment" get rich quick profit scheme that crashed our global economy in 2006-2008, and (3) have drilled a giant divide in Washington D.C. by encouraging and perpetuating a nasty culture of political extremism.

    Am I just being cynical, or does the "baby boom" generation have some explaining to do?

    Sort of a half serious post, but I just thought I'd throw it out there.

    What can I tell you, we're obviously God's chosen people.

    If you were smart you would realize you're nothing more than a collectivist tool...

    I think your ire is misplaced. It's central planners that caused the problems you've outline. It just so happens that the baby boomers coincided with the rise of central planners...but don't blame someone for when they were born, blame the assholes that actually caused the problems. That would be those that think they know what's best for everyone else.

    Progressives are attempting to pin all of our problems on "old people" or their parents...

    Mao did this and so did Pol Pot's Cambodia...

    Pinning children against their parents is a communist goal - a totalitarian goal.

    I'd bet money he owns one - or at least did own one at some point....
