The Generation That Refuses Responsibility



November 22, 2011 – Comments (6)

Between 1980 and 2010, one generation borrowed 10X more money than ALL previous generations combined. WE ALL benefited from the borrowing with larger homes, better cars, higher salaries, bigger investment accounts, savings accounts, and retirement accounts.

In 2008 the excessive borrowing bankrupted America. In 2009, instead of bankrupting ourselves, ...we started borrowing trillions from our children leaving them little opportunity for success in a bankrupt system.

We justified this behavior by saying our generation was "too big to fail"....we had our retirements to look forward to, businesses to run, mortgages to pay.....not giving a damn about the cost to the next generation.

To add insult to injury, those that benefitted the most are now trying to figure out how they can hoard their accumulated wealh by borrowing even more and blaming the youth for getting angry at this nonsense.

Help restore morality to America....and a future for the kids.

Amen Billy.....and actually more than 1/2 because this quote was written well before many of them that would have been avoided.

Did you notice that not a single Alstrybater in the last post thought about the kids....simply those that were part of the generation that bankurpted America and their selfish self-preservation.

It is very hard for people to confront the truth when it is against their self interest.

The saddest part of is the children that we force to go off and fight.....if the adults were forced to die, do you think there would be war?

plus one for not using all caps!

Curiously, none of my four college educated children are really clueing in the points you made here in spite of my harangueing. I guess they'll be finding out the hard way along with the rest of us.

Man, I guess Alstry's blogs finally were the end of CAPS.

This blog is the Alpha and Omega.
