Democrats in Douglas County, Colorado held caucus on Sunday, and as the reader can see, the reader can see what Democrats stand for, as well as a living wage and Social Security-even though the ungrateful senior voters who have voted Republican since 1968 don’t deserve a dime of it.
After all, it was the baby boom generation who voted for Nixon, Reagan, both Bushes, and Trump. Furthermore, it has been Generation X and the Millennials who have voted Democratic, so it’s not like the American baby boomers have done us any favors.
What the Democratic Party bestows upon today’s seniors is called undeserved kindness, yet the baby boomers vote Republican anyway.
Not only did they vote Republican, but they approved of Reagan’s cuts in social programs-which led to substandard public schools and rampant homeless across the United States.
Our infrastructure began to fall apart, yet Reagan refused to reinvest its maintenance-just like the Republicans of today.
Generation X became the first latch key generation, meaning that neither parent was home after school-and juvenile crime increased. The National Academies Press states that this only became a concern beginning in the mid-1980s.
So, what do we do about this?
This writer suggests we treat the baby boomers with as little respect as possible, because they are the laziest generation in American history, as the June 2, 2016 article from The Week confirmed: “The Boomers were born into prosperity. And they have viewed it as their right ever since.” (source: http://theweek.com/articles/627505/how-baby-boomer-psychodrama-infected-2016-election)
Whatever happens to them in the end happens to them in the end-and it will only be their own fault. This is especially since they lost Meals on Wheels. One should see the humor in this irony, because they re-elected a joke of a president who caused the homeless population to skyrocket during that decade. Furthermore, after the way they treated us in the 1980’s (giving us stuff instead of their time), what are we supposed to do-CARE?
What goes around comes around-especially for those who voted for Nixon, Ford, Reagan, both Bushes, and Trump. Yeah, I’d say that anyone who has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1968 has a bit of a problem that they never anticipated.
Baby boomers who watch “The Breakfast Club” (1985) and who voted for the above will see their future. It’s not looking good for them-especially since they are working longer than did their parents…who usually voted Democratic.
Just remember that American parents of that the 1980’s insisted that child abuse was a myth.
Cold night, huh?
