I'm not a boomer. I'm not getting propped up by the government. I am propping my damn self up with hard work. If anything, the damn government is making it harder with all their idiotic laws and fees.

All you’ve provided today was andecdotes, you have no intellectual integrity in this discussion.

Nice deflection but you're welcome to cite sources showing anything I've said as wrong.

I wouldn’t bother since your answer to everything basically boils down to: “that’s wrong, the gov’t sucks and millennials are poo poo heads”.

I put you in the category of person who is never at fault. It's always someone else that screwed things up. Never you.
You're also dodging the question, and then resorting to personal attacks.

I don't know about everyone else, but when I buy something, I watch dozens of videos on it, I read hundreds of reviews, and I try my best to check it out in person before I buy. I took 6 months to decide which welder to buy.
Why wouldn't you check out your chosen career before signing up for 100k of debt to pursue it?
I LOVE photography and writing. I'd love to be a photojournalist. But I looked at the job stats, pay, and demand and decided not to go into it.
I saw a lot of demand for welders and decided to go into it and it's working out.
I also set myself up to do mechanic work, which is also in demand, and it's working out. I still have a ways to go before I consider myself financially stable, but I'm a whole lot closer than I was last year.

What is wrong with taking personal responsibility? It seems to be a bad word these days.
No one is expecting everyone to be perfect and never make a mistake. We all mess up. But you have to learn from them and make better choices each time you do. But most people want to just blame someone else for everything that goes wrong instead of taking responsibility.
I'll leave you with this:

I doubt that if our country got to the same level now and New Deal programs were created to put people to work that the Millennials would take the jobs offered. They won't be in a cozy office building and pay $220K a year.
I suspect most college-grad Millennials would be happy to even be making $50K.

8 BUT, as I keep saying, YOU ARE NOT PAYING FOR A JOB, you are paying for knowledge and skills.

So how do you explain this?

Stop being wrong.

Are you saying the government isn't terrible?

Boomers suck just as hard as millenials, just in different ways. And not all millenials suck. There's some incredibly successful millenials out there. There's plenty of successful early 20 somethings too. But they're not the problem. The problem is the entitled idiots, boomer and millennial alike, that can't be bothered to take personal responsibility for their choices.





Am I supposed to be sad people didn't do proper research and bought a crap house? Because I'm not sad.
You hear me complaining that my insurance company told me I had gap coverage so I didn't need gap coverage in my loan, and now I'm on the hook for the gap in my van payout? Nope. That was my own stupidity for not reading the fine print. I neglected to be thorough and paid the price. $6,000 dollars worth.
It's not Obama's fault. It's not Trump's fault. It's not the cab's fault. It's not aliens. it's not boomers. It's not anyone but me. I did it. I made the mistake. I get to pay for it as it should be.
Those people can sue the people who lied and said it was renovated when it wasn't. There is legal recourse even though they didn't do their due diligence.

Sorry if you can't handle that but that is reality. Actions and choices have consequences. Be prepared.
