    Millennials are all grown adults but are portrayed as innocent, young kids on TV, press, and media.

    Staff: Can I have a raise?
    Stephen: No, but if you do a comedy bit with me on the show I’ll give you exposure

    I’m curious about the Boomers with their heads in the sand. My parents are WELL aware of how much harder it was for my brother to find a home he could afford (on a decent salary, even), how much more it was for me to go to college because I chose one in a big city. Hell, even when my parents bought their retirement home years ago, it cost more than all the previous homes they had ever purchased COMBINED. My parents were raised by people who lived through the Great Depression. My brother and I have some damn similar stories to their parents. It should be clear who’s 20s-40s were harder.

    The thumbnail appears as though she is about to Knight Sir Colbert with a gay lightsaber. Perfection.

    I was born in 1950. We are the luckiest generation ever born. (assuming you were born in North America or Europe) We had Free Love : Lotsa jobs ;Lotsa $$ Most of my life I worked 6 mo/yr and made more than my kids do now in 12 mo. Land and houses were cheap I bought 50 acre on a little island near Vancouver for 50 Gs in ’77 In 1970 my dad got an acre of lakefront 30 mi from Whistler from the gov’t for nothing Homestead act was still in force build a cabin on it and pay 500 a year for 10 years !!! Life was so good from 1950 to 90 My kids get mad at me for talking about it!!

    Maybe if GenX wasn’t so ineffectual and made some effort to make something better, someone would care about them?

    I am GenX and the child of Boomers, so I can concur. Boomers are the root of the problem. They went from peace, love, and understanding in their youths to what does my stock portfolio look like in 25 years. That was GenX’s model for behavior.

    Yeah I’m probably going to end up homeless just for the fact that I don’t agree with every single inch of my parents’ lifestyle and so they’re starving me out, guess that’s Roman peace for you
