Attention Boomers: PULL THE TRIGGER!!!

It seems that humanity’s most self-absorbed generation is finally reaching the predicted end:

Turkaly said he regrets his attempt to overdose on tranquilizers, which he attributes to social isolation. But in one grim respect he is far from alone: He is part of an alarming trend among baby boomers, whose suicide rates shot up precipitously between 1999 and 2010.

It has long held true that elderly people have higher suicide rates than the overall population. But numbers released in May by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show a dramatic spike in suicides among middle-aged people, with the highest increases among men in their 50s, whose rate went up by nearly 50 percent to 30 per 100,000; and women in their early 60s, whose rate rose by nearly 60 percent (though it is still relatively low compared with men, at 7 in 100,000). The highest rates were among white and Native American and Alaskan men. In recent years, deaths by suicide has surpassed deaths by motor vehicle crashes.

It is hard for me to acquire any sense of sympathy for the Baby Boom Generation.  They had great ambitions and were the first ones to believe in the lie that you can do anything when you grow up.  Now they are facing nothing but a collapsing nation, endless war, debt, and isolation from their children who more or less despise them.  And many of them deserve the spite from their own children as they have taken what was once a booming and prosperous nation and turned it into an international bully strapped by debt and massive economic contraction.

Just about everyone in power these days are from the flower power generation.  And despite their best efforts, they accomplished nothing.  They didn’t bring about peace, love, and legal drugs.  Instead we have disease, death, and massive incarcerations.  And don’t get me started with the immigration problems they caused and continue to encourage.

No, I have nothing but contempt for these losers who decide to off themselves.  The whole article is just a piece that holds them up as victims when in fact everything wrong in their lives is their fault.  And if they are more than willing to end it all early, I won’t stop them.
