Gen Xers need to over throw the age of the Baby Boomers
Everytime I hear someone do the shake and bake dance over lifting the Retirement age from 65 to 67, I always think one thing - 'Fucking Baby Boomers'.
That's right, this is the 'I hate Baby Boomers' blog, and it's been coming for sometime.
By lifting the age of retirement, we not only make it more unfair to Maori (who have a shorter life expectancy) we also allow these greedy Baby Boomers to cling onto the job market denying Gen Xers from rising through the ranks for another bloody two years.
On top of getting their education for free, their health care for free and their retirement for free all funded by their vast speculation on property (which makes it more difficult for Gen Xers to buy their own home), these greedy no good Baby Boomers are living off the backs of Gen Xers who have to pay for boomer lifestyles while paying the debt from their own education.
I call time on these bloody boomers. They have sold out every principle they fought for as the first youth culture and now simply hold on with all the energy greed gives them to continue to support their precious lifestyles while blocking Gen Xers from forging ahead.
Throughout industry after industry, I hear from my Gen X friends that they are forced to deal with Baby Boomer sales managers who have managed to slip into positions of authority with zero ability. These beige brigade that make up the gate keepers of NZ have zero interest in the future of the country and every interest in their cushy little fiefdoms.
Never before has one Generation taken so much and given so little, it's time Gen Xers across NZ started a quiet revolution to other throw the beige brigade of aging boomers and seize the power away from this selfish wasted clique.
The age of the Boomer is over, Gen X has inherited the shit Boomers have refused to deal with, we are the next Generation who will be running this country and it's time Gen Xers started making that changing of the guard a reality.
I'm not the only one calling time on baby boomers, so to is bloomberg...
Generation X Stymied by Boomers
...a typical member of the relatively small group called Generation X, 46 million Americans born between 1965 and 1978: They’re ambitious, squeezed by debt and frustrated by people who aren’t retiring on schedule.
It's not so much 'death to the baby boomers' as it is 'get lost and retire now you blood sucking sell outs', the next Generation need to take over now.
