At least we don't have to use life alert
B*tches endlessly about ageism. Only ever complains about those "evil old dinosaurs". You know, the ones who raised you without asking for a dime in return, and probably payed for you to attend college? Douchebag College Progressive.
"It's a generational thing, it's not in style to buy a house or car but thrift shops are in. It's a fad" it's not a goddamn fad, you guys had it too easy if you think we pick being thrifty student loan slaves. If I had the money I would be working some job at a grocery store to save for college. I wouldn't be terrified that I'll graduate right as they don't want my major. I'm cynical because the brightside isn't all that bright. I don't have the guaranteed suburban baby boomer pads. The houses are there and there's no way we can buy them. We may not have to worry about the draft but that's not the only government sinkhole to fear. We are making the best of this ugly world you gave us and you just there in your "golden years" criticizing on issues you never faced. Baby boomers need to step off.
@SailorFreddieMercury, wow, way to act like you have nothing nice while you sit on a smart phone
@You Wont Like Me, you're right, I don't like you
@SailorFreddieMercury, had it too easy? Seriously? Every generation has faced f-ed up times. Life has NEVER been easy. Get over yourself. My grandpa lived in work camps with his wife and kids. Life was day by day because they couldn't afford food until they had done field work that day. The kids worked right beside him in the fields and at night they slept in a shack they built themselves. Yeah our economy sucks and our government is out of control but gen y has been of voting age for a while now and we have made it worse for ourselves. If everyone stopped playing the poor me card and blaming others for our problems, we could work on solving them. But hey, thats what we do these days. Whine and complain and blame everyone else so we don't have to take any responsibility.
@SailorFreddieMercury, take my upvote now
@thecorpsebride, I agree strongly.
@thecorpsebride, you. I like you.
@thecorpsebride, I'm sorry but do you realize how many baby boomers vastly outnumber gen y is nearly double the population. Yea sure my parents and grandparents had to work hard for what they got but the opportunity was and CHEAP. You step out of high school now you have limited opportunities and if you make a mistake you're fvcked. If you go to college fit a year and decide maybe this isn't for you you're now stuck paying back thousands of dollars in student loans. So spoiled, no, we're pissed off because we have to fix a broken system that older generations screwed up. And unlike at the end of the great depression, our government isn't helping and just keeps pushing it off for the next people. So tell me this with, limited opportunity and little money to do so, how is it fair that we have to fix a broken system that we never broke?
@SourceFed, high schoolers need to stop posting like they know what the real world is like. You're all saying the same generic BS they put on the news, when in reality, anyone with a good work ethic can do what they want in life. Getting a job isn't hard, but you're not going to get the $15/$20 an hour job without starting off with the minimum wage job and proving yourself. I would put money down that 90% of the people on here don't have to work for their iPhone 5's or what they think is their "crappy car." Your parents and grandparents didn't cause this society. Our awful governments choices did. Most of the time, the same people youre criticizing dont have the resources to make the change they know can fix the world. Show some respect for the people that raised you and your parents. If not for them, none of us would be sitting on the toilet getting to enjoy these pictures.
@thecorpsebride, thank you for a real post. My grandfather would walk 6 miles to school, then have to come home and farm with his father just to survive. If any of these kids actually had to work for what they've got, they wouldn't be so quick to judge the elderly that literally have nothing else in life they can do but watch and judge the world. These people didn't get the educations we have. How could any of you expect them to act and think the same as you? Why don't you tell me it's Africa's own fault they're in such a bad situation? That's what you're basically doing.
@SourceFed, and just to make it known - i don't mean to make it sound like I'm passing judgment. People in high school don't really know all the responsibilities that come with providing for yourselves - and it annoys me to see anyone post things they don't fully understand. The world doesn't have an easy fix. There's always someone to screw up a solution thru greed
@You Wont Like Me, I'm a 21 year old college junior living on my own and no help from my parents because they can't afford it. So yes I do know what hard work is.I'm saying you don't have the opportunities that were there 40 years ago. I don't mean to sound like a defiant little sh!t. I respect what my mom did for me she was a single parent raising for kids. But it is the older generations fault for the government they voted the people to office. Yes the electoral college exists but the popular still has a heavy weight in the situation. I would have never gone to college right off the bat if society didn't pressure you to do it right away. It took me the years to finally decide on a major. If it weren't for this economy and the student loan situation I would have dropped out my first year.
@SailorFreddieMercury, wow, can it. Insult your older generations all you like but they are the reason we are all here today. Elders worked their arses off just to earn a penny. The raised us and made sure we didn't have the past they did. Be respectful of the people who created he foundations for the future, rather then hating them. You think your world is fvcked up now. Think of the world now if the allies lost WW2. Seriously rethink your comment.
Citizens can't start a war, only congress can...
@Gabbyaz, and who is congress made up by?
@bronze512, Oh oh I know! Old people!!! Mostly white too!
This is an awful assumption-filled picture that does not properly represent the last "pure generation". 1st pic-is it really dumb to not use the internet? Really? 2nd-citizens are not in the position to commence wars. The picture didn't address how or why such wars may have been necessary.3rd-this is an exaggerated generalization based off one personal experience (the pic maker's) 4th-haha, how can you really blame the entirety of condition of the economy on the previous generation? What about the ineptitude of the governing bodies? Having kids is good, too. 5th experience is far greater than money. If you think otherwise, you should reevaluate your philosophy. I'm 17, not a geezer.
@The Omniscient Judge, you have some good points there. Sadly, the concepts of logic and rational thought are lost on Far-Left nutjobs.
We'll see how much they laugh when they take cuts to their Social Security.
My grandparents don't do any of that crap they can use iPhones and pc's and my grandfather wants to teach me how to do 3d modleing and honestly I want to learn
Everyone is just awful
I am 15 and I completely disagree on everything here
@KnightOfBloodSAO, aren't you too youn.... Oh crap I'm 15 too
@dumsaint, it is no problem ;P
@KnightOfBloodSAO, *with* Not trying to be a d*ck, just my brotherly duty kicking in. I always correct my siblings, being the oldest, out of love and not wanting them to embarrass themselves out in the world.
@KnightOfBloodSAO, you're 15 so I suppose you know everything.
@Acrocker7z, all I said is that I disagree, no need to go any further than that
@KnightOfBloodSAO, I'm 19 and I am in the same position as you on this.
@Acrocker7z, I agree with him too. Since I'm 17 I know everything and then some.
Reminds me of the altruists. GTA V anyone?
our generation is fckd on the Medicade thing for old people retirement, we will never be able to use it.
Also (and I don't think I'm alone here) my grandparents are racist as fvck
10/10 would bang his wife. No, just me? *doesnt care*
Scumbag old people
And they laugh while doing it... such sadistic bastards
Went to school for free. Says kids have it easy these days. Says kids these days don't know hard work. Only worked one job they're whole life.
Picking on old people? Get a life man
I REALLY WISH I'D STOP HITTING SEND BY ACCIDENT
These are all
Stuckpixel, you sadistic fvcks. How can you take such joy in making the community fight like this?!
First Picture - Ha ha, that's kind of funny! Second picture - Erm... Okay... Kind of wrong but okay... Third picture - Ohhhh, it's one of THOSE pictures... _
Not all old people are the same, you know that right?
