                As an early millennial, I think of boomers as the ones who protested the wars and fought for equality and better environmental protections. It's weird hearing this new thing.
                I think it's the ultra-rich that's causing these problems in the world, not just of the boomer generation. So there are rich Gen-Z kids who cause problems and don't even think twice about it.

                                  No one gave you authorization to redefine the word, to reinvent the word, it's meaning, it's usage and mechanisms, it's code, it's slang, it's content, and it's art, but you do it anyway's.

                                  Language = word = communication = phone.

                                  Is there a hidden language in the sky and in the earth that math has no basis for?

                                  To reinvent thing's is crazy, insane, stupid, retarded, etc.

                                    I was Italy, and in a rural area. I was there for a job, and the only way in an out was a bus. You have to show up early, and get on the bus, because they don't fool around. Either you are ready to go, or you're left behind. It was hot, and the people sitting around me where smelly, still you have to wait. Outside the bus, I see this pretty young American, and her Italian boy friend. In the America, people watch movies, and TV shows that cater to them. They make you think, that you are the center of the universe. The girl looked nineteen, maybe twenty years old. The boyfriend looked looked to be in his late twenties. When I got on the bus, I said to her, "You have to get on early, or they close doors, and you miss the bus." She turn away from her boyfriend, and her sweet young face snarled up and she said, "Mind you're own business, you old bastard." I was maybe five years from being twice her age. I thought, "Okay. I tried to do my part.", and got on the bus. I knew exactly what she was doing. I've seen it before. American women grow up watching romantic movies. The common trope is, "The girl is kissing her boyfriend, as the bus driver waits" It's funny, at least once a trip, you see young women acting out this fantasy. The bus driver always shuts the door, and drives away. I'm sitting there sweating like a pig, watching the girl talk to her Italian boyfriend. The bus driver finish his drinking, and gets on the bus. I guess drinking and driving is not a problem in Italy. The bus starts up, and this a signal for the girl to start kissing her boyfriend. We start to drive away slowly, and the girl chases the bus. I guess the bus driver hadn't seen the movies. The bus is moving very slow, and the girl banging on the door. The girl used some of the Italian swear word she must have learn, and the bus driver slams on the breaks. The driver opens the door, and the girl starts swearing at him. The bus driver cold cocks the girl, and she hits the ground. The bus driver then starts kicking the girl. I grab my bags, and run out to stop the assault (Never leave your luggage.) I ram the bus driver with my bag, and turns and figures he doesn't want a fight. The bus leaves, and girls is deeply sobbing. She calls for her Italian boy friend, who about thirty feet away watching. The boyfriend runs off. I'm standing there with a crying young woman at my feet. I ask the woman if she need help getting up. She screams, "Fu*k you", and continues crying. One policeman shows up, and he talks to me, not the girl. I explain what happens. He wants to arrest the girl, and tells her this. You can't try to smash out the windows of bus, because it won't stop. I pay a fine (About forty bucks), which the policeman just pockets. I missed my bus, which I really needed to be on. The girl got to her feet, and managed to stop crying. She wants her boyfriend. She say hell fix things. I guess she didn't see him running off. The young woman can't reach on her phone, so we go to the store, I don't know why. Inside, she start asking the store owner does she know where her boyfriend lives. Surprisingly, he does, but he has a wife and kids. She sure the store owner is wrong, and go with the young woman to this mans home. We get to the address, and her boyfriend runs in the building, and this fat young woman comes out, and start swearing at us. We leave, and woman tells me all men are pigs, blah, blah, balh. I buy us something to eat, and when the young woman is looking for a bathroom (there is none.), I leave. I've had people call me a boomer. My father was draft into Vietnam. The moon landing is history to me, and I'm a Boomer. All these Me llenials need to leave their ivory towers, and see what the real world is like.

                                                            It's more of the fact that "ok boomer" is being used as an escapist tactic instead of acknowledging irrational and illogical mindset and behaviorism within the modern generation.

                                                            That's what boomers are upset about.

                                                              I wouldn't say it's an escapist tactic. Boomers aren't notorious for good delivery. They think berating and insulting people is a way to get your point across. Millenials and Gen Zs are just demonstrating that they aren't buying into that style of communication anymore.

                                                              People should be able to say the truth. What should not be accepted is imprisoning People who can say what their truth is and prove it. I want to know why are all these Men who keep the violence going still being able to go from one Woman or Man, and keep sleeping around with them. If a Woman does it once. She is the cause of every Man who was killed for having an affair. Not that I have ever caused such nonsense. America get a clue. The only ones allowing to keep assembling are the ones getting innocent People killed. We are being prevented from socializing for not being so destructive. I am not upset to NOT associate with the weakest Women and Men in this mess. I am upset that I have to be around them. I am ready to gather around People like myself who can care less. I don't have time to be imprisoned for weak Characters. President Trump needs to address who is who and stop violators from coming to my home. OR do not allow the four Government Agencies to call me crazy when I do something about it. Like unlawfully hold my compensation overdue.

I have all I need, a house, a car, no debts, money in the bank, and I'm retired so I don't need a job. You all can blame us for what you now have to live with but I'm probably going to die soon and wiln't care any more. If you don't like the world we left you with, well then too bad, I don't give a shit. It's yours now, live with it or not. Blaming me for what you have (or don't) is not of my concern, and shitting on me wiln't make your life any better. And just so you know I didn't bring any kids into this world as I saw how crappy the world was turning into. If you have anyone to blame it is YOUR parents, not me. If you don't like the world you live in - then fix it for yourselves. I didn't make this mess, look to the wealthy raping the world economy, political and religious corruption and propaganda for the guilty. We've become the target for what is wrong, but we are not to blame as a generation. Deal with it. 11-18-2019.

You people love to do that on the internet as if it makes any difference lol. Get with it, gramps. Noone cares about your opinion. Take your pills and go die. Most of us can't wait for it. Sooner or later, you'll be in a nursing home full of Millenial nurses who will finally have their revenge on your frail little ass.
