Recently came across a CNN article about millennials, the people born to baby boomers, the generation that grew up with computers. It was pretty damned close to spot on accurate, but the author forgot to mention what lazy pathetic assholes we are. You can’t really blame US for being lazy and pathetic. Our parents raised us that way. Our parents and their goddamned hippy movement. The government should have just come and firebombed San Francisco, because the 60’s counterculture movement is the reason our parents were such dickbags, and therefore, the reason we are such dickbags.
Now there’s something to be said about the Civil Rights Movement. Totally legit. But those asshole kids that just wanted to take LSD and spin in circles at Dead concerts grew up to be bad parents. For the most part. They made us soft. Those damned hippies made America soft.
So here’s a comic strip I stole from CNN and added my own two cents onto. The red shit is me.
There is something to be said about the fact that our parents totally effed us. The US has $17 trillion in debt because of YOU, Mom and Dad, not because of me or us. Because of YOU. YOU elected these scumbag politicians. YOU polluted our planet beyond the point of no return. YOU gave birth to monsters like Dmitri Tsarnev or however you spell his name. YOU gave birth to Adam Lanza, Lady GaGa, and Nikki Minaj. YOU did all those things. And we’re fucking pissed about it.
You got us into this mess, now you can get us out of it. But you have to beat the shit out of my lazy generation to make us do work for once, because we’re ungrateful to even be served crumbs at a banquet when kids in other countries don’t even get crumbs. We think we deserve shit, and we don’t, but we don’t deserve debt and pollution either.
