I think the blame should fall on the baby boomer generations. Screwed the world up for the rest of us.
Your statement shows you have not studied economic and politics.......................It was politicians, bankers and corporations that messed over
y'all not us baby boomers.
I worked from the age of 10 (orphaned and cleaning houses and baby sitting) until my job with the same company for 16 years and at age 57 was
outsourced to someone in India.
My husband and I had mega amounts of money removed from our paychecks for Social Security and now the Republicans want to steal that from us.
Now, start researching as to the medical and retirement package perks your state reps get.
Who in the hell works for who?
You are a slave and don't even know it to the government that is screwing you over big time.
The few elite controlling the many ignorant public.
A public that is too lazy to do the research and find out who is really to blame.
And it's not the baby boomers....................I've worked, scraped, saved, gone without for decades.
You youngsters are spoiled rotten.
We've had to work long and hard to get where we are at and never had anything handed to us.
Kids now with cars at 16, limos to go to a prom, $30,000 weddings, honeymoons in the Bahamas, many live with mom and dad who foot the bill.
If you were blessed with a 130+ IQ, have a really good job, believe it or not, that was pure luck DNA wise.
I started out born in downtown St. Louis, single parent (product of an affair), orphaned at 9, abused from age 9-20 and still managed by age 59 to
have a good 38 year marriage, a home, a town home, and fairly nice life.
But I worked hard and sacrificed. Honeymoon was camping in a tent through Canada for one week. Three vacations in 38 years, no purse over 30
dollars and two pairs of good walking shoes at 70 bucks.
No diamond rings, no sail boats, no vacation cottages, no eating out anywhere that cost more than 10 bucks a plate (and that for fancy occasions).
My credit rating is 750 and I've managed to save.
Again, "baby boomers ruined it for the rest of us"
Our corrupt government setting the New World Order into place is what is wrecking it for you.
At least do the research and know who your real enemy is.
