my wife's uncle died, he was 81, a couple months before his death he apologized to his son and his grandsons,

"he apologized for it was his generation that allowed the US Government and the 1-Percent to destroy today's Economy and the Economy of future generations to come"

it's true, my wife's uncle made that apology, for the last 10 years or so he has been so upset with the US Government that he feels it was his generation that allowed it to happen

I wish I could talked to your wife's uncle.

I bet he didn't ruin anything.

I suspect while he and others like him were trying to carve out an honest living for his family, he didn't see the massive number of thieves arriving in Washington DC over the decades.

Having his nose to the grind stone obstructed his view of the business lobbyists buying up congressmen to get special laws passed giving them tax breaks.

Having to spend time earning a living keeps a person from realizing many special interest groups have banded together to reap huge taxpayer monies right under the taxpayer's nose.

Without spare time to watch our congressmen, it is easy for them to give away our country to foreign leaders for a few extra "under the table" donations.

Even the "gimme free stuff" has gotten into the act in a big way by forming many different groups to suck off taxpayer funds every day.

Breaking it down, there are two groups of people in this country...the people who contribute and those who rob.

No, I suspect he was just a working guy that was wondering what went wrong.

Course I didn't know him and you did. Was he right?

90% of life is "showing up"

I was born in 1975 but I always thought it was the baby boom generation who ruined everything. The WWII or "greatest" generation tried to warn us but we didn't listen.

No worries my generation will set things right.

Did he teach his kids right from wrong? Taking responcibility for their actions?.... Have a few laughs? If so he was a great success, if not he was a failure. My money is on he did extreemly well. Well done Sir. The battles will never be quite finished, but most of our kids will carry on honorably.

Put the time line on the age of 81 and the following generation's of his linage after:

At 81 he would not of been a WWII Vet or of the GREATEST Generation:
Do the math. 1939 to 1945. He would of been too young.

The Sacrifices of our Nation or the Ethic's and Values but yet ( right smak in the middle of it) - The great prosperity of America .
He would of been a child.

To give a idea " Business CLOSED on Sundays " except for maybe a Pharmacist. Sodomy was illegal and so was abortion along with many current activities of this generation. Just as a bench mark of his generational time line. Life was GOOD after 1945. Then Korea 1950's

Most likely a Communist Viet Nam Vet time line - or maybe the very tail end of the Communist Korea Conflict. That's his age linage.

HE raised the Early Boomer generation now retiring - HE gave it all for his CHILDREN: The inheritance of Labor, Saving's, Sacrifice, Property, - Business Building ect to pass to the Boomer.

The Boomer : GAVE it ALL to their children " What's missing " The Labor Effort Precept : EARN IT - Now FREE !!!

Built a NATION of DEPENDENT"S > Socialism

Then follows the Generation X then the Pepsi Generation - Now the Millennial.

What happened starting with Many of the Boomers and what did THEY do for their kid's or what was taught ??

CRAZY now life depends on the Crystal Screen. Who provided it ?

WHY :

yes, that is how I would say it too, he was a self made man that owned 4 or 5 small businesses, small used car dealership, laundromat, storage units,, and he sold used Guns, he taught his kids well, no drug problems and work hard, not rich but much better-off than the average, and his grandchildren went to collage and do even better

You have a long way to go there has been a lot of water under the bridge.

At this point I do not believe it is possible to save this country. And if things swing to the left in November, I guarantee it.

Yep we hit the top years ago now we are almost to bottom out. Had a Preacher come to our Church for revival and for the first time ever he said there is no hope to change direction. He said to tell as many people that we can while there is yet time about Gods free gift. We are living in very strange days.

Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

Then your story about him sounds a lot like my old man's story. He died at 80 years old 2 years ago. Navy vet, proud of it. Worked his rear end off so me and my 3 brothers could prosper. Unfortunately he had the same sentiment on society you described above. We assured him until his dying day that it was up to us to make things better. He found peace in that. Now it's up to us.

It is my hope that we can stop blaming one generation by another generation, when in fact, none of us really have any control over what happens to the "system" during our life times.

I hate reading about millennials blaming baby boomers for the recent voting results in GB. Each person voted as to their opinion. Maybe the EU will change to reflect the problems so many people in GB feel.

It is not the generation... it is the issue.

Sounds like he was a great man.

I agree with Ghia about the baby boomers. I really am not mad @ the majority of the baby boomers just the 1% in power that has caused all of this mess. There will be a special place in hell for these bastards.

It was not until around 1996 that the internet started allowing the free exchange of information; and the people of the world got the ultimate pulpit.

I am mad @ boomers that now know and don't feel the need to do everything in their power to reverse what has been done by their generation.

I mean what do they have to lose?...we all have enjoyed the spoils of the greatest generation and now it seems the elite have us all scheduled for extermination only to be replaced by AI machines.

Humanity is in grave danger and when people like Elon Musk,Stephen Hawking, or Steve Wozniak warn of AI...our species is in trouble.

We need more people like your wifes uncle...God rest his soul.

...my handle backwards is how I feel about current world affairs...
