Ungracious and unappreciative boomers? Are you reading from the Obama script of divide and conquer? Shame on you Mike for your inflammatory rhetoric. i haver always liked reading your columns, but stick to what you know. Class warfare works only if you have a bloody revolution in mind. I worked every day for the last forty years so I could "indulge" in a little time off, while raising three children, two not my own. I am neither greedy nor selfish, so stop painting an entire group of people with the same stripe.

While I am technically a boomer I identify with the mature as I was raised by my Great Grandmother who was born in 1889. Her values and work ethic were a thing of beauty and I absorbed it all. No sexual revolution for her kids and no hippie dippies either. Her belief in God, Country and Family have held me to the course for all these years and I am happy to say I have passed it on to my children and grandchilden and great grandchildren. Thanks again Great GrandMom! On the other hand, I think the Boomers, just like the union people worked for life with the understanding they would obtain certain benefits. And boomers did put in the work that was required to obtain a Social Security check. Don't change the rules on them now.

There are exceptions to every rule, but as a fellow Boomer I fully agree with Shedlock. The overwhelming majority of Boomers comprise the most self-absorbed, self-aggrandizing generation of spoiled brats this nation had ever known--until they started raising their children with the same values.

That being said, I have zero sympathy for dim bulbs who vote against their own self-interests. To paraphrase H.L. Mencken the millennials voted for "Forward!." Now they're going to get it, good and hard.

Voting for the race to the bottom Republicans is what you offer? Laughable at best. Dim is better than burned out which is what your party is. I will live to see it disappear.

Those looking for a reason for sluggish housing, weak retail sales, and low family formations rates, need only look at the plight of millennials (those aged 18-33).

Many millennials have no job, high student debt with no way to pay the debt off, and few job opportunities beyond part-time employment in food services or retail.

Millennials are the ones who Obama targeted to pay for Obamacare. Indeed, the forced inclusion of youth (who will overpay for health care) is supposedly what made Obamacare "affordable".

Yet, even with the screw job on...
