I do agree it will be wonderful when they are no longer in charge, but you did go too far with your aggression against the boomers. Just to say you would be satisfied with them no longer being in charge would have been sufficient.

That is going to happen anyway, despite my feelings in the matter.  Truth is that one of them hasn't spoken to me since Ford was president. He would prefer that I wasn't present or didn't exist and not necessarily in that order.  He was a violent asshole so I don't see how I would be losing much there.

Aggression implies that I would be doing it which clearly isn't the case.  I just am not going to mourn the passing of a large number of very destructive people.

very sorry to hear of the separation in your family. No, aggression can imply your feelings when it comes to boomers. You are aggressive with your feelings towards them and take it out probably verbally and most certainly in written form. Even though my mother has held me back with her reckless spending and yes I am the one who has to clean up her mess as xers and millies will have to, I also see the good they have done as well. I would rather see action being taken to fix what mess they have created than to whine about what they have done. Which is why you do not see me bitching about them, but rather acting quietly to fix what they have messed up. Examples for me would be holding back my future to pay off my mother's massive debt, being part of the SVA to help the needy that the boomers in power fail to help via govt and winz (they are the ones in power after all), and I am part of the occupy movement here too who are discussing what needs to be solved and how to solve it through mass movement. In other words I do not whine about them. Whining does nothing. I try to fix it and often with others as that is what gets things done.
