"Beware the beast man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death"

Jr needn't worry.

He can't pay the bill, so he won't pay the bill. Simple.

If you don't like your bill, you don't have to keep your bill. If you like your 2 year chushy budget, then you can keep your 2 year chushy budget.

Nah, servicing a debt is voluntary. You can always choose default.

The children on the hook for this years budget deficit will choose to default rather than service the debt. They didn't sign anything. They will default with a clear conscience.

The boomers are the first generation in 200 years to fail their children. Which is embarrassing.

Boomers have much to be embarassed about, but governments have been paying SS benefits and Medicare out to previous generations from current taxation, setting aside nothing for the future.

Unless, of course, you expect to be able to cash in the IOU's created by Congress to cobble together all their lies and promises to buy votes.

As a veteran of vietnam, and obviously a boomer, I have observed that my generation has pretty much destroyed the world with their narcissistic, indulgent, self-satisfied, moronic, delusional pursuit of instant gratification.  Fuck them all.  I hope they all get eaten by the zombies when the collapse comes.

Sadly, my generation is even more self gratifying, short sighted, and willfully ignorant to the consequences.  I share a similar opion for the outcome; screw em all.

I tried that working thing once, it didn't really get me anywhere though, i think I'm gonna try this thing they call "making a profit" now, that seems to be what other people do, the ones who don't work..

Even though it goes against my religious beliefs to exploit others ignorance, but apparently I'm alone on that one, so whatever, just gonna have to live with that i guess.

Serially.

By the time you realize how much it's eating your body the pain is too unbearable and you're too addicted to get off it.

Easier to make than heroin same high and addicts can't tell the difference.

31 years clean today, 12/22/82! Thank God!

Crack wasn't in great supply and these other designer drugs weren't popular either.

Good thing, I probably wouldn't have made it.

My drug of choice was alcohol, mixed in with cocaine and heroin when I had extra money.

Barely got clean and sober as it was...

The FED is drunk on CTRL-P-dil, a deadly eleixir that kills whole global economies and their taxpayers.

Don"t boast about being clean.  You're a fucking loser to need to get clean in the first place.

Let me put it another way: it's nothing to be proud of.  NOTHING.

Sure.  But, keep your failures to yourself.  They're nothing to boast about.  They don't make you a special, unique individual.  Just shutup and carry on.

Studies have shown people who have tendency to be attracted to and addicted to mind-altering substances are more intelligent than average.  They are also more sensitive.  It's clear you have never spoken at any length with an alcoholic or junkie.  Well, I have, including my father who was described by a colleague as such.  Another person is holds a master's degree.  My father took his life when he was no longer able to work.  He did not want to burden anyone.  He was a wonderful man who made a difference in this world (went 556 feet below the ground to recover 2 deceased men he had never met during a mining accident in 1965 and was never really the same afterwards.  There was 2 ton of debride and a cage in this shaft, on top of the men, and my father was one of only a few men willing to do the job on this cold January night.).

 

So fuck you forever and a day.

The Communists 'solved' China's drug addictiopn problem in short order after taking over.    Totalitarian governments have little use for 'non-productive' members - Germany dealt with its mental hospital residents the same way.

Keep in mind that opium was FORCED on China by Great Britain as a way to reverse theior balance of trade deficit - tea and porcelain and silk going to England in exchange for silver.  The only thing Britain could sell to China to reverse the drain was OPIUM (and they went to war to force it on China - twice).

So it seems like the only real choices future generations have are becoming a "prostitute" or a "rape victim". Either you play their game where they win and you receive creature comforts that can be taken away at any moment or don't play their game where they win while one cries in the corner, goes off the grid, or becomes an inmate.

Either way you're fucked.

Another case of age & experience (guile!) beating out youth and idealism.

Plus the old fuckers know how to organize & lobby.
The young... not so much. But they can do wonders with an iGadget or Air Jordans.
