millennials have the most boomer energy I have ever seen about gen z deciding what the new social culture and customs are - they are *panicked* about not being 22 anymore and cannot handle the idea that they aren’t the arbiters anymore
millennials spent their entire 20s refusing to learn life skills as a personality trait and now call changing a lightbulb “adulting”, so when confronted with their waning social power with little to show for it they are freaking the f*ck out
like hell yeah boomers destroyed our entire material lead up to adulthood, but hey it’s here, stop being mad at gen z who saw it coming by looking at us and got really good at dancing and hair in their early teens to make up for zero financial mobility
I really can’t stress how badly I need the full story, in detail, about the Four Seasons Total Landscaping press conference.
The simplest explanation is that they meant to book the Four Seasons hotel, but it still doesn’t make sense because HOW did they accidentally book a landscaping company without any kind of press conference amenities?
How do you even book a landscaping company for a press conference??? At what point should someone have said “Hey, you know we’re not the hotel, right?”
Last year my Jewish grandmother spent hours begging me not to move to Berlin because she still associates it with Nazism, and then this week she called to tell me she’s glad that unidentified government agents are kidnapping protestors because the protestors are subhuman scum.
Not great, folks!
We also had a pretty amazing conversation about taking down Confederate statues, where somehow walked herself into a scenario where she said she would not agree with tearing down statues of Osama bin Laden and Hitler if they were erected in her neighborhood.
95% of the people I've talked to in the last few days who are over 65 absolutely refuse to make any changes to their lifestyle.
As best I can tell, they're under the impression that the best response to a global pandemic is a positive mental attitude and grit.
The DAY that my parent's friends got back from flying to three different cities after being denied clearance to fly to Europe because of the virus, they invited all of their friends over for wine and steaks.
My grandmother's response when I called her yesterday to ask if she was staying indoors was,
"Of course not! I'm not going to panic just because the media tells me to. You don't know what's going on, I don't know what's going on, so why disrupt everything on the off chance?"
The time to start impeachment proceedings was on January 27, 2017, with the Muslim Ban.
We are two and a half years late, and just yesterday Robert Mueller made it abundantly clear that it is Congress' job to impeach.
Yet Pelosi has the gaul to call it "premature".
I hate to admit it, but the one thing Republicans REALLY did right, that paid off BIG TIME, was ejecting establishment Republicans through the Tea Party and centering around their TRUE values, which turned out to be racism, hoarding capital, and hurting women.
While I like this article, and appreciate @Bernstein as a skilled reported, it irks me a bit that I am referenced repeatedly in this article as having made "multiple errors" in my initial tweet/reporting of the Baraboo story - when those errors were benign and irrelevant.
Specifically, two errors: initially getting the graduating class year incorrect as being 2019 rather than 2018 (which I quickly corrected when contacted by another student), and saying that it was "the entire class" doing a Nazi salute, when it was not every single person.
It also bothers me that these error are referenced as a reason that the public was wary of the story and the media.
Also, the fact that I was not contacted at all in regards to this story, and quite a massive word count is devoted to sympathizing with the students in the photo..
