The argument that those of us that(CHOOSE TO) do so easier, and with less taxes and entitlements from our govenment is rather thin.

From a Gen X perspective, I think we have, do, and will work way harder than Baby Boomers and end our lives in less security and pretty much the receiving end of zero entitlements that we paid into, such as Social Security.

Remember when Dolly sang the sone "9 to 5"? I've been working at various capacities in offices for 15 years, and it's more like "7 to 6". Are our taxes lower than 25 years ago? Should we expect a functioning Medicare system and Social Security when we retire? What age will we retire? 85 years old?


So you make a generalization about a whole generation of people, claiming your generation works way harder than they do, to make your point more valid. That is a very thin part of your argument.

Well, generalization is the name of the game when it comes to Social Suckuity.

The FACT is there aren't any gum-drops left in the tree for us GenXers.

There isn't any pension plan for us.

401ks are for suckers.

What are government has rubbed our nose in is that we don't deserve nothing.

Even though the CIA is plundering TRILLIONS of dollars from OPIUM operations in Afghanistan each and every year. None of that money can go into helping the American people out one bit. It all just disappears into thin air. All that money (enough to fund a whole country) just vanishes.

The pentagon owes us 4.5 trillion dollars too.

Getting fooled!!!! AGAIN!
