News Flash: We're getting screwed
When I was in my 20's, newsmagazines and other pop culture media latched on to the idea that my generation, Generation-X, were slackers and self-centered. I always thought we instinctively accepted the idea that America had peaked and we were not going to experience the same standard of living that our parents did, so why fool ourselves? Enjoy what you can, while you can, when you can.
Well, after reading this article, I not only am sure that the "good ol' days" are gone; I'm sure it's much worse . The Boomers, dear brothers, are taking us to the cleaners, and we don't even know it. We're fighting their wars, running their computers, populating their cubicles, and now, shouldering their debt.Posted by tat at August 14, 2003 06:49 PM
