Let it burn

It’s always interesting to speak to a Boomer or to a Millennial about my allegedly controversial status. Relatively few of the former and a minority of the latter are able to grasp my total disinterest in obtaining mainstream approval or authorization. More and more are beginning to get it, it must be admitted, but I do find it intriguing to observe how fellow Gen Xers and the younger Zoomers seem to be naturally less inclined to play along with the Narrative.

And as it happens, SNL hasn’t quite completely lost its fastball. Most likely because this is a topic that touches the younger generations across the political spectrum.

PARROT HEAD BOOMER: $8 MILLION IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE. SO OF COURSE I’M TAKING THE SOCIAL SECURITY.

CARRIE THE MILLENNIAL:  I’M SORRY. I CAN’T. YOU ARE TAKING THE SOCIAL SECURITY? BITCH, YOU ARE RICH!

SHOW HOST: OOH, SORRY, CARRIE. YOU DIDN’T KEEP YOUR COOL.

CARRIE THE MILLENNIAL: IT FEELS SO UNFAIR.

SHOW HOST: MAYBE YOU CAN TWEET ABOUT IT. THAT WILL SOLVE EVERYTHING. MY GOODNESS. I’M JUST PLAYING. I’M GEN-X. I SIT ON THE SIDELINES AND WATCH THE WORLD BURN.
