Heard it all beforelthe twenties flappers where to blame for the 03' depression. Someone else caused my failure. Failures always balme someone else. But then the flappers of teh twenties where chnaged by the great deporession and thier children became the greatest generation. But some weher still failures even amoung those because they are too busy blming others to chnage :IMO.

Good post!






And:To blame a "generation" as if they're all the same or members of a specific club is just stupid.

Just a reminder to the non baby boomers here, we were also the generation that changed America in the 60s and 70s.

Summary:

Blame the boomers and all our problems will be solved?! (with trademark cool head slap)


BTW- Boomers did NOT invent the "Me First" mentality. Australopithecus Afrarensis did.
