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.

They have had decades and flatly refuse to deal with the debt issue which they have had decades to do something about.  This applies to both the right and the left, the only real argument was what to spend it on.  Reducing spending was never seriously considered.  As a consequence, fixing the problem is not possible until enough of them get planted into the ground.  This is the sad brutal truth of the situation.

Some of them are looking for the regeneracy even though we haven't got to the SHTF stage of the Fourth Turning.  This is just one more symptom of the state of denial they have had for decades.  They may as well get some clue about what the consequences are likely to be.  There are Xers out there that make me look positively merciful where the Boomers are concerned.
Boomers are getting older. They will not be in charge forever. Our day will come. (hopefully soon for xers and millies both). In other words, I know they will not listen. Cant teach old dogs new tricks, but you can stir up the system with others.
