Apparently, some in Generation X are fed up with the Occupy movement.

The generation that gave the term "slacker" new meaning is looking with measures of rivalry, regret and tart bewilderment at a movement its successor mobilized in the name of "the 99 percent."

...

"Generation X is tired of your sense of entitlement. Generation X also graduated during a recession ... and actually had to pay for its own music," declared Mat Honan, 39, a San Francisco-based writer for the technology blog Gizmodo.

How's that old adage go? "If you're not a liberal at 20, you've got no heart. If you're not a conservative at forty, you've got no brain."* Well, Generation X is at about that age where they start turning conservative - and maybe, just maybe, they see the Occupy movement for a bunch of whiny, entitled kids with college degrees.

*Please, no jokes about the youthful conservatism of certain of us TH contributors.
