Fw: Fwd: Born Generation Y

People born between 1925-1942 were called –
The Silent Generation

People born between 1942 and 1946 were called-
War babies
People born between 1946 and 1964 are called –
The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called –
Generation X.
And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called –
Generation Y

Why do we call the last group Generation Y?
Y should I get a job?

Y should I leave home and find my own place?

Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?

Y should I clean my room?

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?

Y should I buy any food?

But a cartoonist explained it very eloquently below...

Ok, looks like I'm done here.

I'll stop by from time to time but no more posting, since they keep getting bounced.

If this comment survives, good bye to all the regulars whose contributions I've enjoyed.

I feel sorry for the younger generation: they have no one to look up to.

Interesting that "Generation Y" (which is much more often called "the Millenial Generation) somehow spans 30 years. But putting that aside, lets look at the point when everything apparently started to go wrong: 1980. So, according to this, everything started going downhill with the election of Reagan. This is true in many, many ways, but why should it apply to kids?

Maybe Ronnie's "cut taxes, increase reckless spending, and fuck the poor and helpless" ethos somehow got into the minds of this younger generation.

Also to note: most of today's active duty military is in this generation. Bunch of whiny babies...

Gruaud: I look forward to the wisdom in your post please reconsider.

Ok, thx guys -- I'll try again later this week. Maybe the glitch will have sorted itself out.

Yeah, when will those freeloading two-year-olds learn to fend for themselves?

As a 21 year old who works 40+ hours a week at a physical, heavy lifting required, blue-collar, UNION(!) job to support his parents who were fucked by their parents who took out massive lines of credit INSTEAD OF GOING TO COLLEGE BECAUSE HIS TUITION CONTINUES TO GO UP BUT HIS GRANT OFFERS STILL GO DOWN, I just want to say fuck you to every baby boomer piece of shit who forwards this.

Y should I hate people based on their religion, gender, or race?

Y shouldn't I be concerned about the environment?

Y should I listen mindlessly to my elders just because they are older?

Y should I be forced to accept a shitty job with no prospects while the 1% gets rich off my sweat?

Y should I keep paying into your social security, since you're so opposed to the government?

And Y do I get the feeling you're going to call me on your rotary phone to fix your computer when it crashes and you can't send out any more of these emails?

You'er a pitiful excuse for a troll.

Let me guess: pointing out the misspelling. As if that vindicates any of your lame trolling.

Thx 4 Fish said...

The generation that voted for low taxes and high spending--for 40 years-- with no thought to the future now thinks they can blame their economic disaster on today's 'lazy' youth!

To borrow a phrase from MRWD: Forward this to all the young people you know, maybe it will inspire them to get out and vote this fall. Because all the geezers will be there voting away educational funding and student loans, food stamps and especially health care reform. They will also vote to keep THEIR Medicare intact, while making sure no future generation gets ANY.

I'd be happy to assist Marc in any way I can, but I simply don't "get" why it's a giant laff-riot (note: mis-spell) that I'm supposed to fix Marc's rotary phone. WTF??

May we submit an application for better quality troll? Or at least one that makes sense once in a while.

Gruaud: Don't give up the ship. Come back when you can.

Y do rightwingers victimize themselves constantly and seek incessantly to *blame* "the other" for perceived problems?

Y do rightwingers not get off their lazy asses and seek *resolutions* to perceived problems, rather than incessantly whining & crying about what they think they lack or what they think is "wrong"??

Y do I get the feeling that this is just another ploy by a rightwing think tank to pit a segment of the 99% against another segement of the 99% in order to *distract* them from really considering who is responsible for the problems that confront us presently?

Y do rightwingers love stand around yelling: get offa my laaaaawn??? Douchebags.
