It is the Baby Boom Stupid!

I am a member of the Baby Boom, born in 1947. From that date to 1970 was a boom of population unheard of in the world.

During WWII, people held on having children, or were killed and could obviously not procreate.

But when the “boys and girls” came home, they got with it quick…

Births exploded.

And the Baby Boom was supreme in the world for over 20 years.

Both Trump and Biden are baby boomers….Trump for sure, he is my age, and Biden on the cusp.

The younger generations have always disliked the Baby Boomers, even though they were their parents or grandparents. The world put up with when millions were toddlers at the relatively same time, in school at relatively. the same time, were teenagers at the relative the same time (shudder), and the baby boomer generation literally over came the rest of mankind for at least 25 years.

Remember Rock land Roll, The Beatles, etc etc.

Now, as the Baby Boomers reach old age, the younger generations are getting antsy….after all the one generation has ruled for decades…

So my children, even though they are Democrats, mistrust Biden, Trump same thing….

Trump being the fascist Nazi that he is, is using the same trick that Hitler did….MAGA…is the same thing Hitler due to the unfairness (and it was unfair) of being charged with causing WWI (the worst war to date)….

So, Trump a baby boomer, is using the same strategy that Hitler used, gaining election power on the anger of younger generations.

Hitler proved what this can do….Germany saw horrible defeat, WWII ended on nuclear bombs, and the world became much more dangerous than ever in human history.

Finally, the “younger” generations have not been in leadership positions because of the baby boom, so now worldwide the leadership experience is minus.

This makes for a dangerous world, and one that is prone for fascism.

Soulless Trump is taking advantage of it, he has absolutely no ability to lead anything, but is using his boomer situation to once again be elected when he is the worst candidate for the Presidency in our history.

So buckle. up buttercup…this will be a dangerous ride!
