Earlier this month, AARP released the video above, which typifies every stereotype many members of my generation hold about Baby Boomers.
Namely that they lived it up in the sixties, led extremely comfortable and self-indulgent lives built on the backs of the Greatest Generation’s sacrifices, and are demanding benefits to which they feel entitled, even though it may ultimately bankrupt this country.
Now most Baby Boomers are probably not this selfish, but this ad certainly makes them appear that way.
My message to the 50 million is that you are wealthier on average than the rest of us, and it is not right for you to take more out of the system than you put in. We all need to make sacrifices in order to keep this country financially solvent.
This threatening, arrogant, and greedy advertisement does not suit you.
