    They've wiped Gen X off the map - kinda like Queen Elizabeth hanging around too long and Charles never getting to become king. The 3 main Dem candidates are *early* Boomers along with the fuckwad GOP president.

And the damn spineless aimless millennials - "there's an app/platform for that" - oh really?
