    The younger half of the Millennials and Generation Z are both going to end up in crushing poverty in their older years thanks to the incessant greed of Wall Street, the big corporate executives, and both the democratic and republican parties. It would more accurate to blame the past five administrations because this shit all started with Reagan and his horrible failure known as supply side trickle down economics. It's disgusting.icon_mad.gif
