Pure Boomer hate

It's surprising, but SNL can still pull it together when sufficiently motivated to break free of the ideological chains binding comedy these days. It's fascinating to see that the one thing that transcends both politics and race at this point in the ongoing imperial collapse is the younger generations' loathing for the generational behavior of the Baby Boomers.


It's not only hilarious and very well written, (they even hit the "everyone else is just jealous" angle) but the hate is so pure and comprehensive that you would have sworn it had to have been written by a Gen-Xer. But apparently the Millennials have now had more than enough of the nonsense too.

Stopped by the house, give the grandkids a hug
Now get the fuck out, I'm trying to have fun....
I got the shot that's just how it is.
You locked inside homeschooling my grandkids.
I know you want to live large like me
I got the big-ass house and the SUV.
I got the second house two and the third house three
The place in Vermont and the one in Miami
Damn, I got five houses? That's a lot.
Good for me!

"You can tell this hit close to home because my boomer parents complained about it the entire time..."

It just kills them that no one admires their g-g-generation.

"Since 1975, I never imagined an SNL skit so obnoxious that it actually made me angry... Today changed everything. 🤯 Wow."

See, now THAT is how you identify nuclear rhetoric. These Boomers are genuinely angry about one little song-skit on SNL.

I was born in 1949, and none of that invective applies to me, or anyone I know. There are a lot of poor and unselfish boomers. Selfish behavior isn't generational, and hatred isn't constructive. It's unfortunate that you hate my generation. I don't hate yours. Get well soon.

Of course it is ridiculous to suggest that the Boomer generation deserves admiration. Conceded: Boomers SUCK, and they make you puke and hurl. But, has it ever occurred to any of you Boomer/hurlers that the whole Boomer- hurl issue is a distraction that retards a rational etitological examination of the long term cultural decline that Boomers and their offspring embrace?
At some point you need to stop obsessing about a bunch of geezers, get your heads out of the toilet, take some Pepto Bismal, or whatever, and figure out how to use the current superior GenX + Millennial numbers to reverse the long term decline for the NEXT generation.

No, because we earn less money, cost of living is magnitudes higher, houses cost magnitudes higher and jobs are disappearing, not being created like when you were 17. Pardon me that I'm not going to "buy a house" by putting myself into 25 years of debt.

We'll stop just as soon as you're all dead, because that's when you'll finally shut the fuck up and be out of everyone's way. How on Earth do you not understand that the younger generations can't ever stop "obsessing" because you moronic Boomers keep interfering with our lives? You do grasp that the lockdown was pushed by Boomers for Boomers, right?

My point is this. Yes, damned boomers. Ha ha. All well and good. But that the additional destruction by and for the boomers, makes things exponential. More than just ha ha. More like burn it all down. The rhetoric had an inch or two more blade to go to hit that artery.

Probably one of the least enjoyable boomer traits are the lectures.

"Bring your lunch every day so you can make double payments on your mortgage." I was in a large law firm at the time, and I tried that. Even at a firm, the diversity would routinely steal food. I ended up buying a small fridge for my office, but what other people can do that in the workplace? And back when mortgages were $100 dollars a month you could pay them with lunch money, but the boomers blocked new houses in the good suburbs and let the city of Detroit turn into a third world abandoned hellscape, knocking out a half million houses.

"Work a job in college and pay for school." That was before every U hired 2,000 useless employees for diversity and leadership, and excused all the vibrant faculty from teaching, while giving them huge raises, so the tuition also has to pay for the gig economy who actually teach the classes, on top of the bloat.

"Buy a used car to save deprecation." Your administration destroyed them all in 2009, the used market never went down again.

"Get a good job with a pension plan." There are no defined benefit pension plans anymore, you drained that concept. You bankrupted the country with COLA SS raises on top of your plan, plus you whored out all manufacturing to China and Mexico so your investment plan would give enough short term profit you could buy the condo in Scottsdale on top of your McMansion and the vacation home on the lake. Meanwhile your kids and grandkids live 45 minutes out of Denver because that was the only place hiring at a decent wage and they could find mostly safe schools and a house they could somewhat afford.

Blogger Fishslinger_Bear March 29, 2021 8:18 AM  

I didn't think anyone except ignorant and comedy illiterate kids watched SNL. I guess it makes perfect sense that boomers still do. It is funny and hits the boomers spot on, but I agree with some other commenters here that these SJWs can't help but push the vax every chance they get. Wickedness is their core nature. It may not have been the main point, but it is there just as it was in the South Park Vax Special. It too was very funny and hit the boomers hard, but the "everybody wants the vax and can't get it because the boomers come first" thing was even more disturbingly annoying and distracting in that episode. That isn't a coincidence.

Why do you assume we have not?

Despising anti-civilization traits and a whole generation who personified them is helping to steer the rising generations away from following that same path. It's not sufficient, but it's necessary.

Blogger theartistformerlyknownasgeorge March 29, 2021 8:34 AM  

The truth sometimes slips out.

Often art is good enough to tell the actual truth regardless of the narrative the author intends. So many films do this. The writers want to preach and the actors are SJW's too, but they "accidentally" represent the characters well enough to contradict their own sermonizing.

It would seem that truth is a slippery slope as well.

Blogger Ariadne Umbrella March 29, 2021 8:35 AM  

Boomers- you realize us younger generations downplay what we have gone through at your hands? I write what I hope is generally safe for work, safe for the internet, and not anecdotal? Which leaves out so, so, so much? I am just one GenX.

You people get a memorial in Washington with all your lost comrades on it- the Vietnam War memorial. Nobody else lists who dies by name in the capital city. Everyone else gets a representative statue. You lost how many in one war? History talks about the Black Plague, which took a century to kill off 1/3 of Europe? Okay, you people managed to do that to your own children in ten years. Then you sue when priests try to set up cemetery memorials with tiny crosses to symbolize some of what your women did.

Then, you went in a divorced your wives at about a rate of 50%. The downstream effects of that keep sociologists, psychologists, judges, prison guards, emergency rooms, pumped up for decades.
Would you like one anecdote of a life downstream of those effects? The other adult in the family carpooled to high school with a bunch of friends. These were high school athletes, good guys who studied, went to college, and so on. They are all dead, except for one. Every last one of the Boomers go to their fiftieth high school reunion and all of their friends are there. They have a moment of silence for the two kids who died in Vietnam. We've lost more kids in one carpool than that entire school lost to Vietnam.

Would you like to count out the kids lost to self-medicating because their family fell apart? Would you like to count the kids who couldn't afford college because the family budget was in the hands of a stepmother. I wouldn't even count college- how about no prom dresses? Dumpster diving for clothes in high school? Getting stalked by unsuitable men because there wasn't a dad around to scare off the bad guys?

I volunteer for some Covid relief. Would you like to know how I'm basically numb to "I am living in a car?" This from a person who had a job? And has blown out all of their savings trying to survive the Corona shutdowns? I'm at the point where I only react if someone has a child living with them in the car. These were people with good jobs, benefits. They had a good work ethic. Their bosses loved them- I've seen the petitions from the boss for help. I've seen letters from Boomer parents with actual mansions!! asking us to help find their child and grandchildren a homeless shelter. The kid had a job, no drug or drink or personality issues, and small children.

Considering that the "vaccine" is basically a stiletto straight into the back of your immune system and more than likely designed to get you die from Covid-20 they can have it. Such an elegant solution to the most selfish generation. I wonder which of those 5 houses I'll be squatting.

Blogger Fishslinger_Bear March 29, 2021 8:37 AM  

One more thought. Boomer glee and boasting that they get the vax first to younger generations, especially to the many that don't want it, is the ultimate "OK Boomer". I'm thinking this every time I talk with my parents and in-laws as they drone on and on about the vax despite my repeatedly telling them I don't care and don't want it. Why is this most obvious and glaringly funny truth not being portrayed prominently in comedy? We know why.

Blogger Sapper March 29, 2021 8:38 AM

I don't know anyone in my generation who owns two houses, much less three or four. I guess they exist. I got my working papers at age 14 and started working at Woolworth's. In college I worked at a diner for $1 an hour plus tips. Part-time during the school year. Full time during the summer. Then I advanced to a clerk in an insurance company for a bit more money. Part-time during the school year and full time during the summers.

When I graduated college, it was in the middle of a recession and no one would hire me because I was "over-qualified,' even to work in a lab with my science degree. Well, I had to pay the rent and unemployment wouldn't last forever. So I took unskilled/semi-skilled day jobs with Kelly girls. It paid the rent until I could find something permanent.

I worked hard all my life and now I'm retired with a house I own. It's got a mortgage. I've got a pension, but I can't afford a house in Miami or a Caribbean cruise. I think I'm pretty representative of the majority of my generation. Comfortable, not rich. God has been good to me. But I always lived my life by the adage "God helps those who help themselves."

It must have been nice to grow up in a wealthy household like VD did. He sure has no respect for his Boomer parents. That seems so alien to me. He's not alone, though: most of the commentators on this blog and on SG seem to hate Boomers more than the MSM hates White people. Pretty soon you'll advocate for euthanasia for my generation. Yeah, I can see that coming. Poor little rich boys and girls who hate your parents' generation. Generational bigotry is still bigotry. I'm sad for you.

Hating the Boomer is the first step in not following the Boomer's self-destructive path.

All you have to do is look at the "helicopter parenting" by the latchkey children to see that we're not doing that. Many are even homeschooling even though most Boomer grandparents are virulently opposed to it.

We had Boomers who weren't even related to us actively going out of their way to criticize us for homeschooling.

It also ties getting the shot with not having to wear a mask, which very much goes against the official narrative. I'm honestly surprised this got aired.

That struck me too. It also struck me that I haven't watched an SNL episode for a good 30 years, and even in its supposed 1980s golden age it was pretty hit and miss.

Often art is good enough to tell the actual truth regardless of the narrative the author intends.

That seems to have happened here. Only a part of the audience will get it though.

I've reflected myself on what went wrong (born 1953) and yes, the divorce wave (and subsequent acceptance of single motherhood) is the most destructive long-term factor.

That snl skit was funny. I never really liked snl. But once in a while they come up with something funny.

I am a late boomer. Sad to say I agree with the people bashing boomers. They have it coming to them/me. Did I do all that? Not all by myself. I didn't intentionally set out to do those bad things. I never went to college, cost too much and I really didn't want to put myself in debt. Besides, I had a knack for electronics and working in that field didn't require a degree. Just a basic high school diploma back in 1980. Still working in that field specializing in Turbine controls. I couldn't pay for my kids college, but I helped as best as I could, which really wasn't that much. Jobs are hard for young men and women to find especially without a degree. I seem to relate with the GenX very well. They did/do have it pretty tough.

When I soured towards my generation was when some loud mouths was bashing my grandparents generation. Called my grandparents who I adored all sorts of vile things. I even got in a couple of fist fights over that. You want to push a pillow in my generations face, by all means. Fair warning, some of them don't deserve it, most do. I won't say if I do or don't. I probably do deserve it though. I will however defend myself. I am not quite done with this life yet. I have young adult children who still need help from time to time and I dearly want to see my first grandchild who is due in April. That is what I worked long hours for. My wife, My kids and my future grandchildren. I hope to leave a nice inheritance for them. But not what I want to be remembered for.

I do love the "Ok Boomer" comeback. So simple, so effective. I've used it myself.

"none of that invective applies to me, or anyone I know. ... hatred isn't constructive. It's unfortunate that you hate my generation. I don't hate yours. Get well soon."

You're 60+ and still convinced that everything is about you, and too internally contradictory to recognize that your last sentence conflicts with the one before it.

Poor? You're the loser of your generation yet STILL have all the attitude problems? Good job.

May the underside of your pillow welcome you gently to a warmer place.

"In college I worked at a diner for $1 an hour plus tips."

People get 5-7 plus tips now, and that inflation that is said to have been around 3% a year? It's really been around 7-12% a year (lower when you were young, sometimes much higher in the last three decades), and since I can already see you're too stupid and self-justifying for simple things like compound interest calculations, I'll do it for you and point out that your 1$/hour 50 years ago is equivalent to roughly 20-30$/hour today, plus tips, which is more than many skilled laborers out of technical schools make today, BEFORE the tips.

"When I graduated college"

You didn't have any debt, after only supporting it by working part time at 1$/hour plus tips. OK Boomer.

"Pretty soon you'll advocate for euthanasia for my generation. Yeah, I can see that coming. Poor little rich boys and girls who hate your parents' generation. Generational bigotry is still bigotry. I'm sad for you."

Christ criticized the Pharisees as a group, but there were still a few good ones who believed in him.

So for the few boomers who are on the right side (I know some), remember that you are the special exception to rule. Mourn your fellow boomers, but don't excuse them.

My brother's father-in-law recently refinanced his house to a 30-year mortgage. Never mind that he's over 60 and had stage 1 cancer twice. All the banksters cared about was that he had a job. I guess they assumed that he'd be working at it until he's in his 90s.

This video perfectly encapsulates the attitude of the Boomer: leave nothing behind for your children. That is what my brother's father-in-law did to his children. Instead of leaving a house fully paid for that can be split as inheritance between his children, he's only interested in getting that lower rate and having a huge pile of debt that his children will have to manage once he inevitably dies of cancer.

My Boomer mother admitted to me six years ago that she and my dad knew something was wrong when I was late to be picked up from the babysitter's, crying, that I no longer wanted to play outside, that the school called them to say I got caught hiding in the bathroom during recess, that I'd have to go to the nurse's office in elementary school repeatedly every month because I couldn't keep it together, that my personality changed when I was eight, and was never the same again. Mom told me that she and Dad didn't want to explore the matter further. She actually admitted that they wondered if I'd been molested... but she didn't want to go back to being a housewife, and wanted to continue to be the secretary to the president of a mediocre university 45 minutes away. They left me there for a few more years, including an entire week of overnights when they went to the Bahamas on vacation. When I was old enough, they finally took me away from the babysitter's... and left me as a latchkey kid.

You know that feeling you get when you just finished pooping, and reach over for some toilet paper, only to find that a lazy jerk used the rest and left you a cardboard core? That's what the Boomers have done to their families.

The sooner that generation shuffles off this mortal coil and has to answer to the Lord for its crimes, the better we will all be.

@Sister Benedict, the very nearly same thing happened to my wife! Her parents decided that looking into it would be just a bit too improper for their shitty Boomer suburb, so they told her that everything was OK and then never spoke of it ever again.

She also had a teacher abusing her, and their response was "what are you doing that makes the teacher so angry?" I chalk that up to the Boomer total trust and belief in social systems. Odd that they think of themselves as soooo counter-cultural, man, when every step of their lives has been taken to enrich and empower the institutions of control.

To be fair, inflation was low in the 1960's, starting to rise in the late 60's and peaking in 1980. Went back down but I suspect it was because they didn't take food and property prices as inflation. With Minimum wage being $1.00 an hour in 1960, equivalent wage in 2019 is about $8.77 an hour. But again there are things that aren't counted that used to be counted. So 20 to 30 an hour might very well be accurate..

Blogger Homesteader March 29, 2021 3:41 PM  

I would ask of our Boomerposters
- what inheritance do you have planned for your children? What legacy do you plan to leave them?

Are you, even now, feasting on seedcorn and calling it cake?
Or are you the rare one, who looked at personal wealth as family property, to be amplified for the next generation?

A parent's one job is to try to leave more to their children than they themselves received- financially, emotionally, spiritually, & socially.
Ariadne talks of people living in cars. Americathon was supposed to be a black comedy- not a how-to guide.

Thus, when you look at the later generations, and marvel at their "OK Boomer" bitterness; do you really wonder why? Their very first betrayal was before they were even born, FFS- 1/3 of my generation never even got their first breath. Millenials arguably had it worse. Education, jobs, homes, pensions(!), communities,"diversity is our strength"- we've been dealing with your "I got mine" betrayals since our very fortunate births.

The fact that these posts are always hugely popular, and hugely boomerposted, should tell you all you need to know.

Sometimes the only thing on should do, is repent, and ask of forgiveness. And yes, that requires humility, something your cohort never knew.

But, it isn't too late to change, even now- after all, 70 is the new 30- I'm sure you've PLENTY of time.

Oh, shut up. You just made a Boomer thread about YOU, personally. You know what that means, Boomer? You provided a classic example of Boomer narcissism. Everything has to be about you PERSONALLY, Boomer....about how YOU are different.

Why do boomers have to get so defensive and butthurt every time there is a boomerpost on this blog? You all do realize that if you're not personally guilty of the many sins your generation has committed, these posts ARE NOT refering to you specifically? Can't you separate the micro from the macro?

Take Millenial conservatives for example. Do you hear them complaining about people criticizing their generation? No, they agree with the criticism wholeheartedly. Gen Y conservatives apologize for their generation's left-wing idiocy, while realizing that the criticism doesn't apply to them personally. Do you boomers really identify with your generation that much? Nobody is going to pillow you, that's rhetoric. Unless you live in a nursing home with diverse employees.

Many of the criticisms against boomers are valid. B-b-b-but most boomers are conservatives? So what? What did you conserve? You all refused to nominate and elect George Wallace because he was rayciss. You refused to elect Pat Buchanan because he was a protectionist and a Israel skeptic. You didn't elect Ron Paul because he was "wacky," anti-war, and had "conspiracy theorist" supporters. You made excuses for George Bush's cuckery on immigration and the Patriot Act.

Do countries like Germany, France, or Sweden have Boomers? IMO Canada, New Zealand and Australia are living through a last-gasp Boomer flex. Mostly they sat by in torturous envy as their "greedy" USA cousins lived the Boomer Life. But, finally they're getting theirs! Who knew all it took was selling off everything to Arabs, Indians and Asians? So easy! And all you have to do is call anyone who complains a racist. Done and done. Like that red haired woman from Queensland Australia. How dare her, a business owner, complain about being enriched.

Bitch

In Japan there was an 80s Boomer. The difference is, I think, they went along with the whole gimmedat (mostly due to socialism IMO) and they do own everything - but, they seem to be willing to just let their kids and grandkids starve to death without outright selling everything to China. Sure, maybe a little sale there and a little sale here.
LOL
The other issue is Japan is intense. I mean, think Christian village in Poland circa 1521 and you, with your little hat, walk in to say: "Hello, fellow human". What I mean is, even Japanese find it hard to live in Japan. The cultural expectation (which is required at their level of economic status with a declining population) is extreme.

As for USA Boomers. I believe Big Data will show they were the 5th generation in an ongoing dysgenesis that started, really, with the advent of penicillin. That's why they standout. They're the first to have so many messed up behavioral algorithms they couldn't hold a candle to, let alone maintain, Western Civilization. I mean, they lacked the genetics. And we also hate them because they caught that last gust and glided up and over the peak, smiling as they floated back down.

Most, maybe ALL, of what is said about them - has been true in my experience. I was complaining about the decline and collapse of General Motors way back when I was 14. They laughed. So what? they said.

And, who can argue with what they left us - it's much worse now.

The ones who worked themselves to death rising from tar-paper shack beginnings trying to farm the stripped fields your generation left behind and now are 'comfortable' in our 40's barely surviving with 2 incomes in a 1 bedroom apartment? We curse you to hell. And your death cannot come quickly enough... we only regret that you will not have the same tortured death that we KNOW we are going to have in your legacy.

It took 250 years to create a country, and 1 generation destroyed it. Your generation. and you still live on, wining and dining and giving yourself diabetes while you bitterly complain that those who follow you are not dying quickly enough from overwork and wars to give you quite the same level of comfort that you enjoyed in YOUR forties. because 'you've earned it', and 'we are just jealous'.

WE built the internet on the foundations that the greatest created. We rebuilt the infrastructure that your kind stripped, WE are working our butts off trying to create jobs in our community for our neighbors while YOU bring in millions of cheap drones to power the machines that are ripping those jobs away. WE have fought and died in your wars, while you revel in the profits from importing resources while you put the businesses WE created digging resources from our own soil out of business.

YOU replaced our beautiful art culture with Jackson Pollock horror. You threw away our music culture for the raving discordant crap of John Lennon. You threw away marriage and children for sex, productivity for money management, and leadership for wealth.

I am going to hell, most likely, but I will beg god or the devil for one chance to shit on your heads when I get there before I am consigned to torture. THAT's how much the 'not poor little rich boys' hate Your generation...you kicked over the ladder on your way up, and then tore away our future for your own feasts and orgasms.

The genre of the SNL musical number--rap--is quite fitting for a song about selfish Boomer behavior .

Rap music is very ego-centric. Rappers are boastful. They rap how badass they are. They are narcissistic.

Rap music videos exhibit materialism. Rappers are shown in a mansion, or being driven in a limo or luxury car, wearing jewelry, surrounded by scantily clad women.

Boomers, like rap music, are ego-centric and materialistic.

The SNL musical number had a line about lockdowns crashing the economy.

It just occurred to me that the lockdowns are a great example of Boomerism.

The lockdowns are for the Bommers benefit, to protect them from covid.

But the lockdowns are a zero-sum game: it benefitted elderly Boomers but hurt those who were younger. It was those who are younger than Boomers who got laid off. It was those who are younger than Boomers who had increased stress, even leading to suicide.

I live near the college I attended 30 years ago. Back then, I met new people, including attractive women, made new friends, did fun in-person activities. Today, that college is desolate. Having a wonderful time as an adolescent, which Boomers had, is denied to today's young people because of the lockdowns.

Funny as hell. But also accurate. The big complaint about the Brat Boom decade group is that they had NO concept of intergenerational duty.

Duty in general is an idea that has fallen into disfavor over the last 70 years. Never forget that Heinlein wrote "Starship Troopers" in 1959. Things were bad enough at THAT point that he felt compelled to write an Epistle to the Americans on Politics, Patriotism, and Duty.

They see it as better because they are better off than their parents were. You might get a mystified vague sorry from them but they don't get it. They're voting for better retirement pay and healthcare. They're old and fearful of being poor and dying. The young need to change things if they're so bad.

>> It's also oddly juxtaposed with a post about 4GW/5GW. Why fight the enemy when you can get the enemy to destroy itself intergenerationally?

The Boomers have been enemies with me all other generations since they were in high school if not sooner.

Consider this:

The Boomers displayed more contempt for the previous 3 generations (who did everything they could to make the world as pleasant as possible for those who followed) than the contempt for the Boomers by three following generations (who have been tangibly, spiritually, physically and monetarily harmed by the boomers).

Explain that to me.

Boomers have contempt for people who made the world run smoothly, if not equally perfectly for all.

Those of us after the Boomers have contempt for people who took a wrecking ball, explosives, and corrosive agents to every part those well-running, yet not *perfectly*-tuned systems, except for the parts which specifically benefit Boomers at the expense of the rest of society.

Vox is not young. His parents are not boomers. If you are going to personally attack, at least get your diarrhea correct.

And B (if you aren't a banned guy) you make a list of average life circumstances you encountered. Don't you realize the majority after you never came close to even that? You could pay for college working part time and summer at a restaurant. 25 years ago you had to borrow a small mortgage. Now,, lolol. But even that isn't the worst. You literally grew up in a much more decent, homogeneous time. Paradise in many ways. But the greed and immorality allowed by your generation destroyed everything after it.

So don't take it personal. There were "boomer" before you and there are some even among millenials, but you age group as a whole are utterly predictable in its disfunction.

Blogger Colonel Blimp March 30, 2021 2:44 AM  

B for boomer will never read this. If it doesn't involve being poor or working your way up with hard work, he can't even fathom a problem. Because in his day, being left alone for a few hours in your own neighborhood was fine. Your local school was great and safe and he never had to be inundated with multicultural devil worshippers from elementary on. The hardest choice he made pre adulthood was nothing compared to your daily choices just to survive or not go insane.

I pity them and your story grieves me. I have 2 daughters under 11 and my wife and I do everything with our thoughts to them and their futures.

We're Gen-X. Nobody loves us, nobody hates us, and nobody cares. That's fine with me.

Millennials can't mourn what they never had, but Gen X can. I'm probably with the chorus, including you, in generally asking Boomers to acknowledge Gen X and what was done to them by destroying the America they knew as children.

Barring divine intervention, that will never happen. I don't want to engage in another anti-Boomer rant, but I'll just say I have serious doubts the Boomers will ever understand what they've done.....even in the event of extreme balkanization, collapse, and civil war.

Some other event (that I cannot predict) would need to happen to make some of the Boomers become both more self-aware and remorseful.

And I'll also say that most Millennials and Zoomers under the age of 35 have no clue whatsoever what America was like before our current Judeo-Luciferian dystopia.

How do you explain to a 30-year-old woman receiving regular jolts of serotonin into her brain, every time she even glances at her STUPID smart phone.......what life was like before Internet culture?

IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

Do you remember life before critical race theory and tranny acceptance was rammed down our throats? 20 years ago, most Americans didn't even know what Islam was. But now people are demonized for "Islamophobia", if they dare reject the idea of low IQ incestuous brown pedophile worshippers in their neighborhoods. Do you remember what life was like before all we heard was racism racism RACISM every single day? Do you remember what life was like before hordes of low wage black Kenyans were working in nursing homes in America? Do you remember when you could afford a house?

I remember.

You want the Boomers to acknowledge what they've done? These narcissistic idiots are eagerly lining up for euthanasia in droves, via the "Poison Vax Jab of Death". There isn't a single (((narrative))) the Boomers didn't gobble up and accept. Just forget it, and accept that our elders will someday be treated as a cautionary tale.

Let's do a quick look at the timeline for an early Millineal:
*2000: Graduate HS, get 9/11.
*2004: Maybe graduate college, maybe finish up an enlistment to be able to get through college.
*2008: Early career; Global Financial Crisis.
*2010: GFC really hits; Affordable Care Act hits; hourly & part-time jobs radically cut hours, even as employers decide to increase their job-posting requirements to unreasonable, because "you're lucky to get/have a job."
*2018: The economy FINALLY begins tor recover, Millennials should be getting Senior level titles.
*2020: Sacrifice the economy and small businesses to the Boomer's retirements!

Yeah, that's ONLY the career side of things. It says nothing about the economy, or listening to parents/teachers/uncles/aunts and being told "get a college degree or you'll end up flipping burgers" followed by the condemnation when getting a job proves difficult: "Take any job you can, even if it's flipping burgers, you lazy arrogant little prick!"
Take a look at the spiritual-, social-, infrastructural-, "successful-"*, governmental-, and compositional-aspects the Millennials have been saddled with because of the Boomers.

* What is labeled [or not] as a 'success'.

Refinancing a mortgage so that it goes from X<30 years to 30 years to pay off cannot possible make it paid off faster.

Considering that the poster foresees "a huge pile of debt" being left behind for the children, why would you assume that the Boomer involved was refinancing in a good way?

Blogger Colonel Blimp March 30, 2021 8:40 PM  

Geez we have some economic marvels here.

You refinance to pay a lower amount of interest since you are taking on a lower rate loan for a fee. For most this saves hundreds a month. Factoring in an old borrower, he could have been on a relatively bad rate from years ago and is saving a ton, plus older folks tend to continue paying one fixed amount on either side, making the term irrelevant.

In any scenario, paying less in total should allow a reasonable person to both pay off the loan faster and save thousands in total. Either is a win in any situation despite the boomer assertions. Any other way of looking at it is being willfully obtuse to serve an incorrect assertion or you've never actually had a mortgage before.

There's the problem in your analysis.

Basic pattern recognition notices that Boomers as a class don't care about long term effects, especially those that happen after Boomers expect to be dead.
