    The ECB is just an awful institution and even the Fed guys who laughed at the unemployed struggle to compete with their callousness

    Yet funnily you never had any trouble doing any of that yourself. Only now it's an issue when people dare use it back at your 'superior' ass.

    Abloobloo.

    I'll go againt the grain here and say that defining a new insult isn't a good thing to stand behind honestly.

    I am way behind the sentiment of fighting against the mentality that we as a society are defining as boomer mentality, but insulting people isn't the right way of going about it.

    In my book, action for this is way more to get implicated, advocate and generate change in society effectively sidelining the people who think that way. You change mind with actions, not words.

    The fact that it’s deployed against people of any age should indicate that it’s about a mentality.

    Would get more mileage just saying "thanks for the hot take".

    TL;DR

    But really, the speed with which it spread is making it already approach staleness.

    It’s not like the sentiment wasn’t there before (see any thread on this board), but the phrase does sort of crystallize it.

    I give it a month before it’s basically forgotten, relegated to covfefe status at best.

    Lol, ok kiddo.
    You managed to form any of your own opinions about COINTELPRO yet?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    only if it involves attack helicopters.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.
