It would seem to me, (a Generation X'er) that the "boomers" complete disregards for our economic system has created the current economic crisis.
There may have been a combination of factors which may or may not be limited to a few key "boomer" characteristics such as;
- sexual freedom thanks in part to Viagra (Your screwing around helped screw the rest of us)
- a complete lack of governmental oversight and regulations (Your communist hippy way of government doesn't work)
- environmental movement (i.e. boomers fixed the ozone hole and created tonne of green house gases in the process, nice going.)
- most importantly the boomers experimentation with various intoxicating recreational substances. (Do you even remember 1969?)
Luckily for us Gen Xers, we're not on the verge of retiring, so ironically the baby boomers screwed themselves more then anyone else.
