Who is responsible for our messed up Country? Boomers or Millennials? [View all]

I am not trying to provoke class warfare, but after reading one too many 'I got mine' attitudes of Boomers on another thread, I wanted to ask people....who created this mess?

Everyone like to bash young people, they are a product of society.

They were brought up during the Bush era of lies and looting, no morals and no one standing up to evil.

They were brought up by a disgustingly perverted media pushing violence and objectification, and pathetic corrupt media that distracts instead of discusses.

What the hell did everything think was going to happen to future generations?

Some Boomers think today's generations face the same economic outlook as they did at the time.

Times have changed, whether Boomers want to admit it or not. Many Boomers live through a great wealthy time in our nation, had much time to accumulate wealth.

Now, wages have barely gone up and costs for everything is through the roof.

Houses aren't $30,000 anymore, so it is not easy for for current generations to pay off their house and start socking it away.

I understand there are Boomers that don't have it so great, but to think that the current generation is being handed the same opportunities at wealth creation that was given to previous generations...that is just absurd.

Look at the wages today. CEO pay had risen astronomically, wages stayed the same.

How can young people pay the high prices of everything on such low wages?

It is common sense, I don't get why Boomers can't see it.

And who created this economy? Or should I say, who was accumulating wealth while the Government was sending our jobs overseas?

Did young people create the world they were brought up in, or was it possibly older generations?
