I happen to be Gen-X, and I happen to agree that Baby Boomers have had it easy. Only the generation before the Boomers had it as tough as my group.

50,000 Australians put their arses on the line in Vietnam. Over 500 died. Many injured. Where were you?

And I have had enough confrontational experience to qualify as having done my part for my country.

They are a couple good lookin' gals.


All good apart from the gratuitous slag at 'baby boomers' - from the same demographic that criticises baby boomers for being bludgers on pensions.... clearly this age group know not their true enemy... and live in Imaginationland where any enemy of your enemy is your friend, even if your enemy is your friend.... and your friend your enemy....

DUH...

That's why it's called Imagationland, Don-kay - because it's built of imagination!

Are we there yet.. are we there yet?





Bee in your bonnet?

So hypersensitive to any jokes made that represent any demographic you are in, however harmless ,.. so defensive of your right to make jokes about every other demographic. the more derogatory, the better.

And you can't even see it, can you.

Left out the war on Baby Boomers that is part of this ad itself...... short-sighted and narrow minded in that regard... generally I like these ads, on the mark etc - but they missed there.

It's not Baby Boomers buying  their fifth investment property - it's business parasites.  Most Baby Boomers in retirement have the pension and little more.


However, IF they own their own home and if they are on the Age Pension they get rebates on Rates, Electricity, Registration, cheap medications, Bulk Billing and a bunch of other stuff. They do not need to starve.  Wink

On the other hand, IF they didn't go without when younger to buy a house and rented, they have nothing and the Age Pension will definitely NOT cover a decent living.

The moral of the story is:

Get a job
Save your money for a deposit on a house and go without all the "frills" and holidays to Bali
Buy what you can afford (i.e. a 1 bedroom apartment ... up grade later)
Pay off the Mortgage over 25 years
Keep working until retirement
Live Happily Ever After with the love of your life who you met when 20.  Grin

Are you stalking me? That's a criminal offence, isn't it? I shall have to alert the Forum Owner about this.
