What is in parenthesis are my comments...
"We all know that times are rough for many. But I wanted to (edited: Whine piss and moan about my life) give you a picture of
my generation (as if we are somehow blind).
My generation was born between 1975 and 1985. Now we are 25 or older (Really? You don't have to add for me whiner, I could have figured out your
friggen age from your birth years.) We were raised by the 60's generation and we were spoiled (no, just you). Our classes in government education
were a joke (once again it's not we, but you, and no, you just never read the damn book and studied), we learned about how important our self-esteem
was (and you obviously made it over important), we learned that all people are equal (the Bible teaches that one, not school), we learned very little
about math or science (speak for yourself).
Our parents made a ton of money in the 90's (once again, you might want to realize that your house was yours alone, not mine). While we attended high
school and college (this is a fragment and not a sentence, go back to school). We graduated in the mid 2000's thinking we could run the world (only
fools think this and guess what, that's was just you again). We worked hard and got a massive mortgage because we were told that investing in
property was the safest thing we could do (no, WE, didn't do this, only you did and the other self important fools did this without checking what the
value of their home was the years before they intended to buy it).
Now most of us are in foreclosure and looking for work (No, I'm employed and I’m not in foreclosure). The America Dream rug pulled out from beneath
us (You might want to read about what “verbs” are, they make what we call “English” possible). Now we look around and realize that we live in
a police state with very limited future (with “A” very limited future, and no, that's just you again.). My generation will become known as the
lost generation. Poorly educated, and spoiled we were ill prepared for the adversity we face and will continue to face (Stop your friggen cry baby
whining). I hope that my generation will stand strong and take this government back, but I have my doubts. We are paying the price for our parents
failures (No, your paying the price of your own failures and blaming others for it because you don't want to take responsibility for your own
I am sick and tired of people like “You” claiming that I am like “You” and one of “You” because I happen to have been born the same years
that you were. “I” am nothing like “You” and I resent that you claim that I am. “Your problem”, and it's yours alone, is that “you”
are lazy, irresponsible, and irreverent towards others. “You” are blaming everyone else for “Your” mistakes and claiming “I” am the victim
that “You” claim to be.
Let me tell you who I am. My parents are not to blame for my choices or laziness or any other faults that I have. I research so called investments
before making them and I do so responsibly and not greedily hoping for some kind of false windfall from a so called fixed asset that a house is. A
house is not a rare painting that increases in value as it ages. Children understand this, but your greed blinded you so much that you jumped into a
foolish lie of a deal.
I am the kind of person who understands that “You” are the one who is at fault. It was you and your greed that caused the housing debacle. It is
your laziness and pride that makes you think that you are too good for the jobs that are available now that you could have.
It is “Your” arrogance and evil that makes you claim that I am somehow you. I am nothing like you. "I" understand that “You” are the problem
with this country, not your parents, not the bankers, and not the politicians, but YOU! The sooner “You” realize this, the better off “We”
