George Carlin talks about the “me” generation and where politicians come from…are we seeing the link here, folks? (Bonus message for Obama and company at the end)
I represented Generation Y in this debate. Our generation is leading the change and going global faster than any generation. The news report states that 35% of our generation is not in college and a large number live at home with their parents. That is misleading because we do not choose to live with our parents or not attend college. Some of us cannot get jobs upon graduation or pay for college because of the economy. The baby boomers got us into this economic mess and our generation has the duty and burden to save our country. Baby Boomers can’t create the mess and blame us as we are suffering from their mistakes. We will have to work even harder to raise our kids, pay for their college tuition, and provide the same standard of living that the baby boomers enjoyed. The sad truth is that some of the boomers are also caught in this mess and we must all work together as a country. All the generations need to stop pointing fingers and start working together as Americans to steer the country in the right direction.
