Thanks for all the Mess

Some say that we have a generation of selfish, pampered kids who've been chauffeured around to soccer leagues since they were 6. Are the parents to blame? Read an open letter to baby boomers written by a 20-year-old. Gives you a lot to think about. Here's a snipet. Read the full text in the link above.

Dear Baby Boomers:

Thanks a lot for preparing to bankrupt our nation by collecting massive pensions and benefits that you never paid for. We are paying for them, but we will never collect our money because the system will be broken long before then.

Thanks a lot for telling us that kids are a burden. You only had a few because they’d mess up your plans. We don’t know who will look after you in your old age but we don’t really care, because we think that you are a burden too.
