Let me say first that I don’t see much that’s entertaining about age discrimination. It’s effects are often devastating.

But what is entertaining is how the posters assume that all the innovations that the Boomer generation accounted for (not the least of which is the computer they are currently pounding on) would have somehow happened magically without us.

IOW, if we were to be removed somehow, all the bad we did would suddenly be fixed, and all the good we contributed would still somehow have happened. :-)

However, we get the last laugh. The % of voters that are senior citizens (meaning the Boomers) will continue to grow until around 2045. In 2045, the oldest millennial will be hitting retirement age themselves. :-)

So, basically…..we hold the political power until they’re old and grey themselves.
