I'm sure he is, considering I'm the only one of his kids that has told him to give any inheritance I might get to my one sibling who is not well and needs money more than I do.

If you are ever in southern Alberta, PM me and I'll invite you to coffee row. They can tell you how they feel.

Clearly you have no idea what a Directorship on a non-profit organization entails. If we actually gave free memberships, we would have so many seniors on the board, there would be no room for me at the table.

If I said the Germans invaded Poland in 1939, would you consider that vitriol?

See above. Not only do I not care the slightest about my parents will, my father and I have discussed the debt he has left his descendants. Like you, he is selfish and doesn't really care.

That 40 hour week you take for granted, with overtime paid on hours above that, came to be through those of us who stumped around in the snow on picket lines at loss of wages when we could have used that money for X-mas gifts but thought a higher moral obligation was to fabricate a better working evrionment and future for those who came behind us. Something else you don't give any thought to but nevertheless take for granted. You're welcome by the way; you ingrate.

Ah, so you are a union member. Despite what some uninformed blowhard posters think, I'm not much of a union man. I would be far better off outside the union and non-unionized municipalities nearby pay better. That's an issue for another thread though. Having said that, a 40 hour work week isn't the norm for me. A probably average more than fifty and have a business on the side (that's why some uninformed blowhard posters that think my entire income comes from the government don't know how stupid they look)

I agree. Does that mean your generation is taking responsibility for the massive debt they saddled on their children?

Sorry, that's not a choice. As a senior, you should be very thankful that it isn't.

You should sell that to seniors. Obviously they don't agree with your "Canadian way"

How about you start first. Better yet, your suggestion wouldn't be so laughable if you directed it at those that were the most insulting

Clearly it is the seniors on this thread that are being disrespectful.

False premise- Not all seniors left their kids with a huge debt!

Do you disagree that we have a 700 billion national debt?

I don't know that the debt is- I know it was huge 35 years ago! I didn't spend the money I didn't hoard it so F*** off.

You can always run along if it bothers you.

No I'm not. The budgets got balanced not long after I got the vote. Who spent the money starting 4o years ago and why is it so difficult for you to answer the question? I think everybody knows why.

Canada's budget is not balanced. Must be your fault. Please pay it back.

You can do whatever you like. I just find it odd that you would would stick around when you find me so irritating. I guess I just don't understand masochists.

If you don't know, perhaps you shouldn't be including yourself in discussions that pertain to the subject. I'll ask JLM...Who spent the money JLM?

It's fun to watch the self proclaimed expert in every subject running around posting in every thread arguing like a kid or like a cat chassing a lazer light.

JLM and Da Sleeper: I think we've got to rachet this down a peg or two as this fellow is not playing with a full deck. There is definitely something else going on with him and all of the rebuttal in the world is not going to sway him from his belief we had an active part in creating the national debt. Isn't too pleased with his pap's so there may be some abuse in his background to explain all of this vitriol directed at seniors as a group. As I've aged I've discovered much to my dismay there was a lot of that going on that was very well hidden; those poor folks are carrying all sorts of demons with them. That would explain a lot for the intolerance displayed for our demographic in general by some such as this one.

His choices are clear and will undoubtedly make him happy when we're all gone. He'll create his wonderful nirvannah then his offspring will thank him for the cold heartless individuals that ruined their interpretation of heaven. He's gonna have his turn sitting on the hot spot and for him it will be particularly bitter medicine indeed.

Based on your contributions, I wasn't aware one was required to know what they are talking about to participate.

So you think JLM spent the money? Damn, he didn't get me anything.

It's funny how the "debate" ends once you ask a senior an uncomfortable question. I think JLM is trying to figure out how he can blame the twenty something crowd for the $700 billion debt.

I find it interesting that you find need to assign blame.

I know it's difficult for you to accept your part. Why is that you were so willing to blame me for the current deficit?

Nice double standard. You know, you seniors should just stop posting. You do more to prove my point than anything I could say.

I see you are still around JLM. Who spent the money?

Brother; you castigate a person for their lack of reading comprehension then you refer to this thread as a "debate". it ceased being a debate back on page one or two when regardless of opposing thought you simply hang on that precept of 'nasty old seniors created a debt for you to deal with'.

News flash; you have no idea how we all voted and you've been a voter for as long as some of us have been accused of having a hand in affecting government policy making.

Another news flash; when you refer to seniors in the manner you have; you've lumped all of us in the same pot in the very same manner you regard as spiteful when it's done to your generation. You know some of us are still paying boatloads in taxes so we are saddled with the same debt you are and I for one don't mind my taxes going to help those less fortunate.

Interesting twist you put on all of our posts; you claim to do a lot of volunteer work yet you find the need to attach blame for something largely out of anybody's control unless they were a serving member of parliament with the vote on the floor that goes with it.

You'll have your chance to vote for the party of your choice that will make some decisions you like and a lot you don't. I sure hope you can live with your choices after your favourite party turns out to have feet of clay. In the meantime I'd suggest some counselling for whatever affliction is causing you to "hate" our generation to the degree you obviously do.

Yes, reading comprehension. You will notice I put the word debate in quotation marks.

Is that an admission that seniors are responsible for the debt? Could it be possible?

I was using your logic. If JLM was responsible for the deficit in the 70s, then you must be responsible for the one now. Of course if your logic is faulty (which it is), the whole thing falls apart pretty quickly.

Now, why are you so insistent at pinning blame?

A thousand pardons, I guess I was under the impression that you folks got to vote for the politicians in Ottawa. That must have changed just before I got the vote. Can you tell me what year that was?
