187. +1. As an Xer I agree. Boomers simply don't get this

and the rage and desperation that is driving the younger generations.

Boomers grew up in a relatively safe and prosperous environment created by FDR and the Greatest Generation. They had the Cold War and Vietnam to deal with, but overall the West was in good shape compared to now.

All we Xers got was consumerism, Reaganism, crack pipes and crystal meth and a hollowed out economy and rising cost of living. We were told that the manufacturing jobs were leaving, but there would be limitless 'high tech' jobs for the future. Now followed by what the gen Y and Z are getting which is even less than we got. That is why so many have turned against 'the establishment' because they feel empty and betrayed.
