Let's Whine About the Baby Boomers forum.

That would free up this one for serious discussion instead of all this blather.

I agree. And jeez, I didn't know we were so hated by the younger generation. Let's give them their own forum so we can steer clear of it and discuss things that matter.

Yes, a new thread totally devoted to bashing Boomers. I am beginning to see the makings of a new reality show. "Bash The Boomer", with 24 hour cameras.........and color commentary by 16 year olds with acne & no world experience. OMG, I could be a movie star!. Maybe even become a Director or Producer. Sorry, I lost it there for a second........I'm a Boomer, dementia must be setting in.

While bashing on one person is bad form, perhaps bashing on a group is seen as enlightened?

I second this. The situation is getting just plain silly. I mean, if one goes onto a parenting forum and begins bashing parents, I am pretty sure they will be reprimmanded. So why is it ok for someone to go on a retirement forum where people are all pretty much of a certain age to bash them?

Nah, you're not losing it, mate. Some of these younger folk's that bash boomers didn't have enough sessions with the paddle so they don't know any respect for their elders.

The Boomer Bashers can have their own forum called Generation ME.

Oh, I don't mind the younger Boomer Bashers at all. I figure most are just frustrated with their own station in life and looking to blame someone else for their own failures.

Don't mind debating (or ignoring) them at all.
