|This Boomer has evil, glinty eyes|
So, here’s the article Baby Boomers, a Plague on All Your Houses...along with a suggestion for the author: Why don't you just blame your mom and dad like a normal person.
Catherine, my first house was $179,000 in 1982 dollars (US) and we really couldn't afford it, but we didn't want to raise our future children in an LA barrio at a time when drive-bys were rampant. I was in my thirties, and our house was a dung-hole in Huntington Beach...nowhere near the beach. So, Catherine, I feel your pain, but suck it up like the rest of us.
No one "owes" you a freaking house.
Song of the Day: Your Song. Catherine, I did not know one person (when this song came out) who could afford a house, and if you will kindly listen to the lyrics, you might understand that most Boomers could only dream of having a place with a little yard where they could grow their own organic veggies. That one line about the house was what made this song popular.
