The sun is setting

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 08, 2020

https://voxday(dot)blogspot.com/2020/09/the-sun-is-setting.html?

Sacrificial Lamb nobly attempts to explain to the Boomers why they are, and will probably remain, the most despised generation in recorded human history, before they pass from the stage:

You Boomers always had more wealth, more opportunity, and more political power than us younger generations……and your narcissistic stupidity caused you geezers to squander it all. If current trends continue on, then most of the people that will end up taking care of you Boomers in nursing homes will be low IQ, white-hating black Africans….here in a previously white nation. No joke. I know this because I have seen this multiple times, with my very own eyes. You Boomers wanted cheaper labor, and you got it.

We are all suffering from an endless parade of Boomer selfishness and Boomer mistakes.

Stop being defensive, and take a hard look in the mirror. In case you haven’t noticed, we’re going to have a full-blown civil war soon, and you Boomers need to acknowledge your role (wittingly or not) in creating this increasingly dystopian and Luciferian world that we live in today.

Oh, and people don’t bust you Boomers’ chops for being old. They bust your chops for being the most narcissistic, selfish, and delusional generation in modern history. People bust Boomer chops because you guys inherited a nation of laws, tradition, ethnic and racial cohesion, and prosperity….AND THEN JUST THREW IT AWAY, even when your adult generation still had demographics in your favor. You may have been (((manipulated))) into doing so, but that is not an acceptable excuse.

Can you now understand why some people might hold a slight grudge, or at least deliberately taunt you Boomers?

It’s time to take a hard look in the mirror, geezer…..because the sun is setting soon.

Generation X doesn’t hate its grandparents or its kids. The Zoomers don’t hate their Gen-X parents. But both generations, as well as the Millennials, despise Boomers. Indeed, the small minority of Boomers capable of both a) generational self-reflection and b) self-identification rather than generational identification despise their fellow Boomers too. 

There is a reason that “Boomer” is now used unironically as an insult by the two youngest generations, and that reason is that being a Boomer is observably synonymous with narcissism, selfishness, short time preferences, indifference to one’s posterity, technological and temporal cluelessness, lack of gratitude, and generational identification.

If you’re a Boomer, instead of asking yourself if this is true of you, try asking yourself if it is true of your acquaintances of an age with you. Do they sacrifice for their children and grandchildren or do they live in nicer homes than their kids do on the other side of the country? Are they leaving bigger and better legacies for their descendants than their ancestors left for them or do they brag about spending their children’s inheritances? What sort of world are they leaving behind them? Will the Earth be a better place for them having been here or not?

The sun is setting, Boomer. Isn’t it time you stop lying to yourself about how your generation changed the world and face up to the material consequences of your generation’s actions? Wouldn’t it be better to spend your final chapter doing whatever you can to rectify the damage that has been done over the course of your lifetime?

BOOMER THREAD!2. Dark glasses WoodySeptember 08, 2020 8:11 AM

Boomers were without doubt the generation during which degeneracy went noticibly exponential. I do wonder though if there was ever a cohort that didn’t dance to the tune played by a savvy and self interested elite.3. PaulitoSeptember 08, 2020 8:13 AM

To be fair, they *did* change the world. They changed it for the worse, but there’s no doubt that they changed it.4. SomeOneSeptember 08, 2020 8:13 AM

This is beautifully illustrated by virtually all boomers here in NZ, who even if they have never voted Labour (our left liberal party currently in power) in the past, they now think they will do so in the upcoming election because this government has saved them from the dreaded Covid.

There is absolutely zero consideration that the country has been absolutely shafted (economically and societally),and continues to be. There is zero consideration for the fact that Covid poses no more risk (and arguably less risk) to under 60 year olds, than existing influenza strains.

Nope – they’re set, they have their assets, they’ve done their traveling, they’ve lived a nice life thanks. Time to shut the door, shut it all down – it’s about time to embrace the quiet life anyway.

Apart from my own parents, anecdotally, this appears near universal amongst boomers who up till now had voted conservatively and even libertarian.5. FALPhilSeptember 08, 2020 8:14 AM

He’s right.

Boomer here, and I despise boomers too. The problem boomers had was they were incapable or intentionally not following their decisions to the logical conclusions. And their decisions were self-centered.

I think that self-centeredness is probably the fundamental basic sin. It is tantamount to declaring yourself a god. And that is what boomers attempted to be – gods unto themselves.6. cmateSeptember 08, 2020 8:23 AM

The inability to learn or grow seems unbelievable until you’ve seen it. An entire culture made of idiot just-so stories rationalizing decades-old brainwashing, transparent lies and dopamine.

No modern generation did less for more. And no modern generation is less aware of the gulf between the level of effort vs. level of luxury modernity offers. Born on third but endlessly bleating that they hit a single, legged it into a double, then stole third. In the end it’s an internalized mix of cowardice, existential uselessness and greed dancing to a beast system media show.

Look for increasingly delusional behavior as the baying of the hounds gets louder.

Boomers took the ticket, the Greatest Gen took the ticket, nearly every white American above a certain age took the ticket, and why is that? Because the ticket sellers knew how to lure in the marks, remember all that flattery, all that easy credit, that is part of the con job and it was done well. Now all we need to complete the con job is for some Gruber to come out and let us know, “You fucked up, you trusted us.”

Common refrain of the Boomer grandmother, bragging to other worthless boomer grandmothers:

“I’m not that kind of grandma”13. RedJackSeptember 08, 2020 8:36 AM

My mother squandered three generations of wealth, and is now left alone as my Silent father is passing on. Does she weep about my father? No, she resents the difficulty in caring for him and that she had to live in the country for decades.

Mom is incapable of thinking about anyone but herself. When she complained about how inconvenient my daughter being in the NICU was to her buying a new house, I realized that she really only loves herself.

I don’t hate her, I pity her. Like so many boomers she never grew up past age 4.

@7 Billy I don’t think the boomers are as bad in the south

While there is some truth to that, I don’t think it is enough to make any difference. The South was invaded in the ’70s and ’80s by the Northern migration away from high-tax states, and Southern attitudes got watered down. Couple that with the fact that most Southerners with education work for large corporations run by the pseudo-puritan boomers of the Northeast, and they have been trained over time to tow the line and not make waves.15. Crunchy CachalotSeptember 08, 2020 8:38 AM

Quintessential Boomer Jimmy Buffett wrote the quintessential Boomer song: Growing Older But Not Up.16. rikjames.313September 08, 2020 8:39 AM

And in work places the boomers deliberately pulled the ladder of success up after them. Boomer teachers were crazy loyal democrats, but they also had gold plated pension plans and total tenure in Michigan. As a ‘screw you’ to younger teachers they got rid of both, just for the younger ones, in return for a little kicker on their own pension plans.

Cops, same. County workers, same. Union auto workers kept their 36 dollars an hour and ‘job banks’ (sitting around the union hall drinking and playing cards all day waiting for year 30 so they could retire, and in return allowed the plants to go overseas, and the few high risk/high tolerance plants who stayed (mostly suspension, steering brakes, engines) the boomers let the new employees get pay cuts to 18 dollars an hour.

The boomers had great houses in safe school district areas, but as soon as they retired they sold the houses to Indians or Pakistanis, left their grand children to attend schools in the marginal school district areas, and used the money to buy a condo in Scottsdale and laughed as they took four cruises a year. And lectured their kids about how they were wasting their money paying for catholic schools for the grandkids17. MaskettaManSeptember 08, 2020 8:41 AM

Heard my Boomer father-in-law sneer about the “participation trophy” generation for the millionth time this holiday weekend.

Why do they always forget that we weren’t the ones who demanded participation trophies – our Boomer parents were the ones who created that. They absolutely refuse to admit they took any part in ruining their children’s generation.20. Sterling PilgrimSeptember 08, 2020 8:50 AM

Boomers can serve us all as an example of what happens when one lives relatively comfortable lives and falls in love with the soft world around them. The selfishness and smothering sentimentality turn their soul into worms who fear death more than any generation before them. They traded in vainglorious consumption for real virtues.
They’re going to suffer seeing it all burn around them, yet die before they see any signs of redemption among their children.21. VFM #7634September 08, 2020 8:54 AM

Trump’s approval and standing vs. Biden has been correlating more closely with the Covid caseload more than anything, including the BurnLootMurder antifa riots. It was lowest in June, when Covid was exploding; during July, when it was at its peak but no longer increasing, it started to recover. Now that Covid is declining, Trump’s approval has also been recovering, although unfortunately there has been a flare-up of the disease in the Midwest, and sure enough Trump’s surge has stalled and Biden has remained ahead of Trump.

We do have to rely on Boomer feels about the Covid for us not to end up as the new Venezuela. May God have mercy.22. xevious2030September 08, 2020 8:56 AM

OK, if all boomers did was to make future generations miserable, just stop using all the innovations created since 1945. Start with birth control, antibiotics, and pain meds. Next turn off your A/C, permanently. Use only 1945 and earlier automobiles. Forget mobile phones, GPS, TV, and pretty much all electrical appliances. Get the picture?

Caedite Boomers. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.26. thechortlingSeptember 08, 2020 9:03 AM

I’m not a boomer. Looking at boomer acquaintances I know, many of them raised their own kids and then their kids’ kids. worked a job or two to support that next Gen and then got “the news” at some point: coming out, no longer believe in God, Boomer you suck.

In the Old Testament*, God seems to ask every generation if they’ll repent. If they don’t then they reap not only their own sins but the delayed sins of their fathers. That’s what Ezekiel 18 is about: the son doesn’t die for the father’s sins and the father doesn’t die for the son’s sins.

*for those who haven’t looked recently (or ever) Judah was only one of 12+1 tribes within Israel. The sins of the (((guilty))) will come on their heads but not all the guilty are (((guilty))).27. DannyDangerSeptember 08, 2020 9:06 AM

The boomer meme is a great example of the best rhetoric being based in truth.

My Boomer: *retires less than 5 miles from grandchildren; sees grandchildren once a month or less; complains retirement is boring and laments the need for new hobbies; begins attending art lessons in between golfing and dinner parties; hangs own poor quality artwork made in adult art class all over their house (often replacing the spot where good paintings from talented artists used to hang) similar to a young child bringing home projects from school; shows off poor quality artwork with a smug sense of unearned pride; is oblivious and completely void of self-awareness

At this point, I think the feeling of pity is beginning to edge out the disdain.28. Brett bakerSeptember 08, 2020 9:07 AM

I remember a conversation on a local talk show. Boomer bitching about kids not moving out from their parent’s home. Somebody called in later and said that if the caller was who he thought he was, he moved out of the house because his parents paid a lot of his rent.
Another caller, “I’m a Baby Boomer, I had to work for everything I had”!29. rognualdSeptember 08, 2020 9:07 AM

Vox is correct. My sister was the stereotypical Boomer and I stopped talking to her in the 80s. My father and his peers were WWII and Korean War vets. They were real men. If a civil war kicks off, I hope I’m not too decrepit to send rounds down range.30. Troy Lee MesserSeptember 08, 2020 9:08 AM

Like most things it is more complicated than just “Boomer narcissism” as to how we got where we are. The progressive movement in the early 20th century really set the stage for our downfall when they pushed through a whole host of amendments to the constitution, the 16th-19th amendments basically doomed the US, especially the 19th (giving women the vote). It really was only a matter of time after that, sure the Boomers probably accelerated the decline with their over the top narsissistic behaviors but we would have gotten there sooner or later. Bottom line really is that giving women political power in a democracy will doom that nation/civilization. So yes you can blame the Boomers for the excesses but the real culprits are the women voters and the progressive movement of the early 1900’s.36. Michael MoodySeptember 08, 2020 9:24 AM

I am a boomer, born in late 50s. I stated many times in the 70s that our generation was abusing all the privilege given us by prior generations. My peers looked at me like I was talking Chinese. Knowing that, I did the same thing. I took advantage of everything from cheap foreign labor to operating in the fiat money economy. I paid Filipino nannies and Salvadoran lawn men. The boomers however are paying the price, marriages failed, children rebelled, health deteriorated. Men my age sit around and talk about what pills they take. I cannot stand most boomer men and the women are worse, they don’t do anything of value. The women tell the men what to do and the men seem to like it that way. They vote for a Dem even being “pro life” because they might get more social security benefits. They have no interest in truth. Pray that God will open eyes of the boomers and they repent. I for one, go out of my way to apologize to younger generations for my fellow boomers.43. VerbotenNationalistSeptember 08, 2020 9:34 AM

I’ve lurked on here for years, but this one forced me out of the shadows. My parents are of this hated generation. When I tried to explain the insult to my mom, she reacted with shock and disbelief. She said that couldn’t be true, that her generation was the greatest generation, and that I was crazy for suggesting that her generation was worse than millennials. She’s your classic “traditional conservative” and civnat faithful.44. TankSeptember 08, 2020 9:35 AM

Sad to say so much of this is true. Probably underestimating the damage done by the generation before the Boomers. On the other hand, it was us Boomers voting that put President Trump over the top. Without our votes we’d all be living under President Hillary! I wonder how the generations will vote in 2020 and if some of you, including VD, have any thoughts about that.45. TetroSeptember 08, 2020 9:39 AM

These are my Boomers. Asking my Boomer stepfather two years ago if he would help me do homesteading projects and prepping projects if I moved to their rural area? “No.” Which means his 3-4 hours of Netflix a night, and another 1-2 hours of news and market-watching, and playing tennis at the club, are all more valuable to him than a stable food supply and younger generations of men with guns who are loyal to him. Go figure. These are the civilization wreckers we must deal with. This is the abject shitshow they are leaving in their wake. Let me also inform you that they are Q-Anon fans and have been Ron Paul doomsdayers for the past 30 years. Oh, but they still shop at globo-homo Walmart to get the ‘good deal.’

They believe someone else will ‘save the day’ and do all the heavy lifting and dirty work of reestablishing Civilization. They think gold coins will magically somehow, some way, build bridges and grow corn.

Once the gold price skyrockets and the dollar goes down for the count, rivers will be flowing with milk and motha-truckin honey biznatches!!! Corn and t-bone steaks will grow on trees and Netflix will continue its programming unabated!! Yeah!!!46. thethirdcoastSeptember 08, 2020 9:39 AM

Oddly enough, my MIL (may she rest in peace) was on the tail end of the Silent Generation. My parents and FIL: all Boomers.

My FIL has taken the ticket. Then again, growing up in one of the wealthiest, leftward leaning areas in the country will do that. I’m still amazed my wife is as politically savvy as she is. I think I owe that more to her mother’s influence than anything else.

For as much lip service my parents have given me about things over the years, my X-er sister and I feel like we’ve gotten screwed over the past decade and a half or so. Our Millenial sister and her family are always catered to, so much so that my eldest Z has nothing but disdain for her cousins in that family. I don’t blame her.

We recently had to make a major purchase involving my wife. I couldn’t do it for specific reasons, but my father stepped in to help out. He was getting all sorts of antsy when I mentioned in passing that he helped my wife out to my X-er sister. Seriously, he’s going to flip his shit because we used him to get a decent rate because he has better credit and nothing else? At least it wasn’t my FIL helping out…oh, wait, to him, “helping out” is a foreign concept if he’s not directly involved in micromanaging every little detail because he’s got nothing better to do.

This. Years ago, after living in the Middle East, I was asked by my Boomer neighbors in the company of my Boomer parents, the biggest lesson I’d learned during my few years abroad. I thought for a moment, then responded, “That Americans are naive.”

Of course the chatter about the table recommenced, with not one of the batting an eye and thinking, “Wait. He means us.”

I meant them. They did’t take notice of it. To them I must have meant all those OTHER, non-edumacated, stupid, fat, and poor Americans. About THEM they began to lament.

The very fact that I, as Gen X as one may be, am having to realistically plan for the crescendo of a slow-rolling civil war, strkes me, even now, as, “How in God’s name did we get here”?

Then, I remember all the Boomers,
preening and IKAGOing, their demographic idiocies playing out across the cultural landscape of my life, and I answer my own rhetorical question.

We Xers have our own sins; but, as 1/3 of us never made it past the abortionists, our flaws never had much impact.

Hopefully, in the coming times, our virtues finally will.

You forgot to mention the moon landing, because that’s totally a Boomer achievement. Air conditioning was invented by Willis Carrier in 1902. That’s half a century before you were inflicted on us. GPS was invented by Silents and GGs. Birth control (not something we’re happy about, by the way) was invented when the oldest of your generation was in their teens. TV predates WWII. What else would you like to take credit for that your predecessors did?

And you wonder why your generation is considered scum. Not only did you ruin the legacy you were given, now you’re trying to take credit for what your parents and grandparents did while pretending you had nothing to do with the annihilation of western civilization.

You would. Primarily because Hollywood and public schooling indoctrination, along with incessant Holocaustianity and the incessant lies and distortions of the political and academic classes in their journals, shows, books, et. al., over the past 70 years, have rendered many White Southerners completely oblivious to real history, have made them gross materialists, and made them virtue-signalers not much different from anywhere else in the States. Many of the poorest whites have been steamrolled into feeling white guilt, have had their neighborhoods and towns destroyed by immigration, drugs, and divorce and now suffer from Stockholm Syndrome with lots of low class white girls burning the coal due to a complete and total lack of order, love, and patriarchy in their lives.

Fake and weak Protestant ‘Christianity’ has cucked 2-3 generations of men in the South and turned them into sentimental simps who cheer on negroid sportsballers for years, drink too much, and then talk about and chase after money. While most of them will not rush to pimp their non-racist bonafides like some sickening white liberal harpies, many will be silently uncomfortable and nervous as the conversation nears any racial topics. Their hesitation and silence in the face of political correctness is their surrender. It has been for awhile.

The Confederate Flag represents what it always represented, freedom from oppression from rapacious, overbearing government. Those who raise that flag and defend it, they know this. They are not so weak as to be bullied into taking it down or doubting its true meaning.

The last two confederate flags I remember seeing were in the countrysides of Pennsylvania and New Aquitaine, France.59. CarfingsSeptember 08, 2020 10:08 AM

when I was in high school the debate over letting strangers in government indoctrination day prisons tell teenagers who don’t have any awareness of social context or life experience that using contraceptives is the normal way to have sex was pretty much over. The fornication lobby had argued that teen marriages end in divorce, following fake conservative Ronald Reagan’s 1969 no-fault divorce law.
where were America’s pastors when that law was passed, where are the sermons against it?88. CrewSeptember 08, 2020 11:06 AM

I’ll be fair to the Boomers on one thing: they didn’t cause the immigration mess we’re in right now. They simply inherited it. But they didn’t reverse it and openly, loudly, and proudly supported it.

They allowed Free Trade to become the law of the land and thus destroyed jobs for their children. They told us to go to college and get a degree based on fallacious evidence that college degrees equal higher paying jobs all around.

They gleefully went into extreme debt in order to buy their toys and now the Ponzi scheme that is home mortgages, car loans, and credit cards has made things unaffordable to all millennials and zoomers.

And so the younger generation has to rent their homes, buy used cars, and rent experiences rather than owning things. They lack the ability to properly pass on any kind of inheritance to their children because of the Boomers’ selfishness.

But when the majority of Boomers have died, their expensive homes and cars will be up for sale. And they won’t sell for what they’re worth today.90. dSeptember 08, 2020 11:12 AM

Categorizing by generations reveals the hated SSH types infesting all. Categorizing by SSH types reveals the hated generation infesting all. See the point?

The Greatest Generation fought on the wrong side of the war, according to their own Alpha. Then they transmuted the land into the suburban hellscape, fueling the Judeo-atheist debt engines of Detroit, which spun up the debt engines of Wall Street. Both fueled the ethnic cleansing, through isolation and atomization, leaving natives of Christendom with no identity but for “white”. The purpose of which is evermore evident to ever dumber sectors of our former society, which is why we’re now all on “lockdown” as felons are released from prison at vastly accelerated rates.

My point is the formerly civilized world contains only two categories that are relevant at this point in the progressive degeneracy of our former republics: those who want Christendom to survive, and those who want her gang raping to continue unto death.

These are the only two categories that matter.

I grew up with a Silent Dad, and a WWI generation grandfather. Life wasn’t perfect for them, but I would trade it with today. The feeling of working with three generations on a family plot of land is something I will never forget, but Mom had to sell it to achieve the lifestyle of which she felt she deserved, so that is all gone now (so is the money she blew).

Didn’t have AC much growing up. That was for the kitchen and Mom’s bedroom. The rest of us kids got lectures on how “I deserve it!” and “We don’t have money for that! Go outside!” Not that walking beans or cutting hogs was in AC anyway.

Birth control? Without that we wouldn’t be importing millions of low IQ and skilled people to take care of dying boomers! Most of my generation was KILLED by boomers who were to selfish to stop being children and become adults. I will never forget my mom lamenting with her friends “We used to be great, till these damn kids stole our identity!”

Why are they called Boomers? There were more of them – why?
When DGG got back from WW2, they were just catching up with their own wives what they were doing in Europe. I was there – I know WTF was going on!

My parents are “good boomers,” but they are also oblivious culture shredders. My mom grew up with the remnants of a Southern/German culture particular to our area. Didn’t bother to pass that along. Didn’t bother to teach us canning, gardening, cooking, etc. My dad was a weekend warrior who could fix cars and build things in the basement, but he didn’t bother teaching us. He’d rather blame us for not knowing how to take care of a car than spend a few weekends when were in our teens training us in car maintenance.

As for all the Boomers whining that it’s all really the Silent’s fault – yeah, you can ride that attitude over a cliff. As you are so fond of telling other generations, at some point you have to stop blaming mommy and daddy and take responsibility for your own selves. If you arrive at 20 a mental and emotional mess that might be your parent’s fault. If you’re still hanging out in that head space at 30 or 40 then that’s entirely on you, and now we have people in their 60s and 70s still pointing the finger. What happened?

Let’s not forget one of the most subtle and horrendous gifts of the boomers, the cultural normalization of routine infant circumcision. Sure, it was started by an earlier generation, and it was pushed very heavily. But boomers blindly accepted it to the point where it was simply not questioned. The majority of their male children are now sexually mutilated and sadly will never experience normal sexuality.

Today they are inflicting this horrific practice to Africa, while tolerating FGM in the USA.

And it’s the same with many other unnecessary medical and pharmaceutical interventions–the boomers positively worship their doctors and just love their drugs.107. Snidely WhiplashSeptember 08, 2020 12:03 PM

Boomers then created an economic debt-slave environment that required both Gen X parents to work (at least the ones that stayed together once you ushered in easy no-fault divorce), thereby requiring Millineals to be raised by the propagandists mills.

Gen-X is horrible. Arguably worse than boomers. All of these horrible tech people are Gen-X. As Boomers retire, corporations are “going woke” That is gen-X doing this! Boomers were at least selfish and narcissistic enough to just steal everything. But Gen-X wants to steal anything left and give to people who hate us and rub our faces in it.

Boomers get the hate because they grew up in an idyllic time and setting and did nothing to fight the Greatest Generation and the Silent Gen who dismantled civilization. Granted, they were better people, but it was still them (greatest and silent) who did it. It may have been Boomers acting a fool in the 60s, but they had the backing of the establishment. They didn’t know any better. We know because we have 6 decades of experience and hindsight.134. OneWingedSharkSeptember 08, 2020 1:21 PM

One of the things that we’re acutely feeling right now is the Boomer Manager’s contribution to management: the whole of the antipathy toward training is due to the Boomer and/or MBAs coming into industries and saying “we can hire away from competition cheaper than training!” and then considering training as a pure cost.

I think even today many Boomers would laugh at their kids and tell them they should have ‘worked harder’ as Indian and Paki families take over their childhood neighborhoods and the whites go live in the slums.

They refuse to even listen to their children’s complaints, and then are all to quick to condemn them.

Looking at boomer acquaintances I know, many of them raised their own kids and then their kids’ kids.

Regarding these Boomer threads:

They are cathartic, but also cautionary.

We demonize, that which is harmful.

Harmful, in that which diminishes
us, our posterity, and our nation.

We use Boomers as an example,
since they are prominent, numerous, and mostly unrepentant.

In their majority, they are vulgar in their pride,
gluttonous in their appetite, and frivolous in their mien.

They see no further than their own, limited, horizons. They never learned to put aside childish things. Their very attire is juvenile.

They embody much of that which should be
avoided in a healthy polity.

Their damage, has been, and still is, experienced
by their successors firsthand.

Thus, they are didactic group therapy
for the Alt-Right.

In that, ironically enough, they still serve a purpose.

I would, however, qualify that to say “indistinguishable from the first-stage Boomers” (those born between 1946 and 1955; I was born at the tail end of the Boomer generation in the middle of the 60s and I will assert that I have NOTHING in common with anyone born 10 to 15 years before me!).

Yes, a lot of it was set in motion prior to the Boomers taking control. So what? The Boomers perpetuated it in their unstoppable quest for MORE STUFF, not giving a rat’s ass about what would be left of society after their scorched-earth economic narcissism had squandered what the previous generations had left them.

The Boomers were also the first generation to push a porno movie to the Top 10 earners of the year (Deep Throat reached #7 in 1972). The Sexual Revolution you’re so proud of destroyed the nuclear family, ensured that three entire generations of blacks would grow up without fathers, and killed a third of my generation in the womb just so you could screw to your heart’s content without worrying about nagging things like responsibility or consequences.

And instead of ever even attempting to fix what the previous generations had screwed up with Roe v. Wade and other such policies, you doubled-down and made sure that all the school kids learned that self-control was a passé concept, and that self-gratification was the only true virtue left in society.

This was fun, glad to slam that horrible ggggeneration. Mind you there are some boomers that I would take a bullet for but that’s a very small minority.

I paid Filipino nannies and Salvadoran lawn men. The boomers however are paying the price, marriages failed, children rebelled, health deteriorated. Men my age sit around and talk about what pills they take. I cannot stand most boomer men and the women are worse, they don’t do anything of value. The women tell the men what to do and the men seem to like it that way. They vote for a Dem even being “pro life” because they might get more social security benefits. They have no interest in truth. Pray that God will open eyes of the boomers and they repent. I for one, go out of my way to apologize to younger generations for my fellow boomers.

Yeah like another poster here, I forgive you. Thanks. Not all boomers are bad but a lot of them are terrible.173. OswaldSeptember 08, 2020 4:30 PM

Boomer thread?

Boomer’s gotta boom!174. Major StylesSeptember 08, 2020 4:31 PM

A major theme in white boomer music is African worship. Keith Richards still rattles on with the “all music comes from black people” mentality. With people like Carlos Santana, it manifests itself as a thinly veiled hatred of whites. And as people in this thread have pointed out, they’ve never matured out of this phase. It’s mildly excusable in young people, but unforgiveable in the adult population.

The overall goal of boomer music was, and still is, to replace Richard Wagner with Blind Willie McTell. And don’t think that the (((music executives))) are not aware of this.175. VerbotenNationalistSeptember 08, 2020 4:33 PM

The boomer elites in Madison and Rankin county are embarrassed of it and the history it represents. It’s a very different story outside the cities and the wealthy surrounding suburbs. Unfortunately, as with most places, the rural people don’t have much of a voice here. Keep displaying the real flag and not staying silent. And yeah, the Southern Baptist and Presbyterian churches have long since been converged.176. Dan in GeorgiaSeptember 08, 2020 4:48 PM

And you couldn’t be wronger. But if it makes you feel superior, go ahead and pat yourself on the back.

But, for the record:

I taught my daughters how to hunt and fish. I taught them how to assemble and disassemble an AR15. I taught them how to reload ammunition. I taught them and their friends how to plant and care for a vegetable garden. My wife and I taught them and their friends how to can and preserve produce. I taught them and their friends surface navigation and basic celestial navigation. I taught them how to maintain an internal combustion engine. I gave them the best education I could afford, even when it meant eating beans 5 times a week and working two jobs. I just got my first grandchild, and I have funded his primary education. I have volunteered hundreds of hours counseling young men who have problems with drugs and porn.

I don’t care about future generations? You can go fuck yourself.


What part of “the Macro is not the Micro”, as our host puts it, do you simply not understand?

When you boom about defending your generation because you yourself are a special boy exception to the rule, no one, literally no one, sees you as any different from the rest of your generation who do the exact same thing, exception or not.

Give yourself a few more pats on the back.180. Dan in GeorgiaSeptember 08, 2020 4:55 PM

Other Josh wrote:God honors sincere repentance. Even if it comes at the 11th hour in someone’s life. Even if it comes from a Boomer. Most people are moved by sincere repentance, too. Boomers could heal a lot of the broken relationships they have caused and have their last years be their best years by simply repenting and sincerely saying “I’m sorry, I was wrong”.

They say it all the time, nice and snarky like. “I’m SO sorry, I’m just a TERRIBLE parent aren’t I? I RUINED your life, I’m just the WORST.” And then it’s likely to be followed by something along the lines of “Wow, you millenials are the most spoiled generation ever. I mean, yeah you can’t buy a house, but other than that you’ve got so many privileges” (actual quote, paraphrased, by my boomer mother)184. Dan in GeorgiaSeptember 08, 2020 5:08 PM

Southern states incorporated the rebel flag into their state flags in the 50s in response to forced integration. That’s why the battle flag was used. We are now, or were, at peace so we have the CSA national flag for our state flag with the Georgia Seal inside the stars. This was after we switched Republican for good. The Dems have just figured out it’s still a confederate flag, 15 years later. These people are stupid.185. FALPhilSeptember 08, 2020 5:32 PM

Really, nothing exemplifies Boomer antics than the typical attacks on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It never occurs to anyone that the opinions of this “snowflake” come from the X’ers, the Boomers and the Silents who educated her. Like the proverbial “participation award,” none of her ideas are actually her ideas.

The level of tone-deafness, however, is far greater than that. Look at her background. She grew up in a wealthy neighborhood, where you are poor if you make $100,000 a year. She went to either Boston College or Boston University and got a degree in economics. Being a young, attractive, Hispanic woman with that pedigree should have landed her on a career track on Wall Street. Yet, her last job before Congress was bartender.

No one is curious to ask what happened to her in between graduating college and bar tending? How did she get knocked off of her career track? What occurred? What happened?

More importantly, is this common among young people? Are zoomers and millenials graduating with expensive degrees and massive debt-loads only to discover that the career-tracks they trained for are closed off to them? No one is curious? Gee, you wonder where the militancy is coming from.188. Revelation Means HopeSeptember 08, 2020 5:50 PM

Exactly. Every stupid meeting I have to attend has some asinine reference to boomers retiring and what we are doing to be attractive to millennials and Gen Z.

Gen X is Never mentioned. Never. Never in decades of corporation life have I ever seen any effort expended to develop and retain my generation.

Stupid cunts taking their marketing cues from the (((5th avenue))) idiots. Millions of Xers out there who could be pulled into the workforce with less effort.

The boomer is strong, even in poorer, rural families. My father has 10 children with 4 women. Every time it gets too difficult (ie the kids start becoming teenagers and he can’t handle the woman’s nagging anymore) he jumps ship. His current wife is the same age as my husband. In his own words the #1 thing he seeks in life is “pleasure”. He’s weak and childlike and has no idea how to lead a woman. Complete woodstock style hippie. No cares given that he’s squandering his life and has nothing to his name, and even if he does, which litter of his children would it go to? (At least he saved my half-brother from being aborted by his coke-head partying girlfriend at the time. Couldn’t stop her from abandoning their 2 kids though. Real good judge of character he is.)
My mom is peak progressive, over-sensitive, narcissistic. All I had to do was share a video mocking “women’s rights”, and she freaked out because “how could I support what this evil video says about women”. Because I am now against premarital sex and abortion, she takes it as a personal attack on her character. I honestly used to think she wasn’t that bad and then in this recent spat she revealed her boomer colours. Constant use of “why are you attacking me”, “you just want me to feel bad”, etc. Language and emotional capabilities more stunted than a 13 year old girl. She seems to resent her children in general, saying things like “I sure can understand why some people choose to never have kids” to me, her daughter (in a singsong, clueless way). There’s been far too much divorce and abortion in my family – because I’m the only one who seems to be taking a stance against it, I’m getting a reputation as a bible-thumping cultist.
I don’t hate my parents, but the more time goes on the more it’s hard to listen to them talk. They truly are overgrown children.

@178 Uncle Maffoo:

Pelosi and McConnell are Silents.

Oops, so they are, I even put the raw data in my comment. So that generation currently has more than a little bit of power, particularly in the House where given the current rules the Speaker is a lot more powerful than the Senate Majority Leader.

If the Senate flips, Schumer is a Boomer, and I expect its rules to change to raw majoritarianism. If the House flips, Kevin McCarthy is early Gen X.191. Newscaper312September 08, 2020 6:06 PM

@Glen Sprigg,

First, I’m not even a Boomer so you can stop with the somewhat personal attacks. Second the sexual revolution did not destroy the black family, That was done long before by LBJ with his welfare/war on poverty BS, he was one of the “Greatest Gens” so you can’t blame that on Boomers. Third, all your complaints could be leveled on any generation before or after the boomers so there is nothing unique about any of these generations and the demise of western civilization. Lastly, while the boomers can certainly be criticized for the excesses/narcissistic behavior you also have to give them credit for a lot of the economic expansion that happened. It was not all that smooth of a ride by the way the 70’s sucked economically and the standard of living back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s was pretty low. It was not until the 80’s that things really started taking off thanks to Reagan.

Again, where do I put most of the blame? The progressives of the early 1900’s. They set some time bombs that took several generations to blow up. Also this was the time of the communist revolution in Russia so there was a lot of bad think going on back then that has carried on until today. 100+ years of lunacy.194. SirHamsterSeptember 08, 2020 6:16 PM

You still have a couple more decades to whine before the boomers are all dead.

“You guys are sad. You are whiners. You are not constructive. Talking about this is whining. Boomers won’t die for a few more decades lol. Talking about this won’t change anything. Change the topic.”

Tars Tarkas and Onewingedshark

My mom got knocked up in college by her first husband, who she later left. married my Dad a few years later.

She would talk about how “Great!” college was, and how “hard and disappointing” being a mother was.

When Dad was injured and couldn’t walk, her first thing to me as a 13 year old was “YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING!” She said “Well, Red you HAVE TO GROW UP! I don’t know how to do this, and you had better figure out a way to support the family.”

I got up at 3 to work the farm before school. She never left the house. She badgered my grandfather to give her money for a new car, which he refused. Dad finally was able to walk again, but all I heard from her was how hard it was.

I will say this. After Dad’s brain surgery she did take care of him till his stroke. That was a surprise.197. A trite re-whiteSeptember 08, 2020 6:33 PM

“And here’s a big difference: Millennials don’t think someone else will save the day, but have been punished for dating to try themselves in other areas of life that they are hesitant to try on this one.”

There’s the difference. Boomers are hedonistic, vain, and petty. Millennials are mostly just incredibly nihilistic to the point of it being an unspoken assumption for many of us. Some of us take that and go “well it’s all f***ed so I might as well steal all the last scraps not nailed down before I have to take the entire shaft”, some go “screw all of this, I’ll be on my vidya games, just shoot me in the back of the head when it’s time”.199. xevious2030September 08, 2020 6:47 PM

Did you teach them how to be good wives, to raise and nurture children. To sew, cook, clean, be complimentary to the husband? Anything the husband was not supposed to be the one doing? Something men do not measure one another against?200. JanusSeptember 08, 2020 6:49 PM

Fair enough, defending yourself not your generation, that’s enough for me to take it back. You’re mad that he lumped you personally in with one of the generalities about boomers.

I do think SirHamster still has the right of it though – and that’s why I said that, despite your stated position on boomers, no one sees you any differently when you comment the way you have been. I clearly wasn’t the only one that got that impression.

I do apologize still though, I do need to think more before I speak hastily.
