Generations fucked ....does this apply to you ?
Are you in your twenties and thirties or perhaps even edging up on forty and still struggling to make ends meet...?
Do you wish that you had a degree but know you could never possibly make a gain vs the debt that you would owe nor think you'd be better off for it? Not to mention no bank will give you a loan on your current floor sweeper salary and hey as far as the government is concerned - you're employed so no federal rate for you.?
Have you been working for over a decade in dead end jobs being talked down to like the guy named Benny that used to sweep the floors on LA Law?
Were you told to dream big and then when you had the brass to mention it or think you might perhaps deserve better than this - told what a spoiled selfish loser you really are and that despite working so hard for the last decade or more that you haven't gotten there due to your own laziness and never will because dreaming is just plain stupid (never mind the lack of opportunity, education, and time and money it takes to accomplish it all on the salary of a full time retarded floor sweeper?)
Are you secretly talented and intelligent and realize that people only ever judge you by your uniform and income bracket and dumb yourself down just so you don't have to answer questions about your apparent lack of upward mobility which just doesn't mesh with the baby boomer mindset, so you realize it's just easier to play along?
Are you sick of baby boomers telling you about all their get up and go when all they ever did was buy housing cheap and then re-rent or sell it high thus enabling them not to sweep floors when they were downsized for the 3rd time...? Not to mention our income does not have the same buying power theirs did. (Oh and they still expect us to carry the weight of their retirement btw...the one you will never have) and complain about how their 401k lost money during the stock crash and now all they have is a meager 80k from riding the waves of corporations like Monsanto and Evil Doers USA yet they never think once about the types of things they've been investing in and talk to you like they are really awesome for having been so smart as to invest in Haliburton, Blackwater and Evil R Us to foot the lifestyle of the old and gray and still clinging on to their sell out youths?
Are you tired of Millennial spawn of sector A telling you you're a loser because you have never had the will to travel (because they are too spoiled to realize traveling is a luxury for those with parents wealthy enough to foot the tab) ? Same as that pricey school but shhh (they don't know their parents are underwater for it) add to that new cars all while they have their hands and health insurance still stuffed deep in their heli-parents pockets?
Are you sick of the apparent lack of concern for upward mobility in America and are beginning to realize that despite all your dreaming you my friend have been relegated to the service sector in a life-long sentence?
Well if you answered yes to one or more of these questions - you just may be part of generation f@#$ed but don't worry too much more- eventually we're going to f@#%^ing rock this big mother of a boat titanic economy (they just don't know it yet) because we're so civil and well behaved - for now...but generation fucked our time is coming - it's our time down here!!!
