                  What I love is that Colbert is a legitimate boomer, barely but he’s a boomer

                    Boomers are just pissed that Millenials and Gen Zs aren't kissing their asses the way Boomers did their hard-ass parents.

                        It's more of the fact that "ok boomer" is being used as an escapist tactic instead of acknowledging irrational and illogical mindset and behaviorism within the modern generation.

                        That's what boomers are upset about.

                          I wouldn't say it's an escapist tactic. Boomers aren't notorious for good delivery. They think berating and insulting people is a way to get your point across. Millenials and Gen Zs are just demonstrating that they aren't buying into that style of communication anymore.

                          People should be able to say the truth. What should not be accepted is imprisoning People who can say what their truth is and prove it. I want to know why are all these Men who keep the violence going still being able to go from one Woman or Man, and keep sleeping around with them. If a Woman does it once. She is the cause of every Man who was killed for having an affair. Not that I have ever caused such nonsense. America get a clue. The only ones allowing to keep assembling are the ones getting innocent People killed. We are being prevented from socializing for not being so destructive. I am not upset to NOT associate with the weakest Women and Men in this mess. I am upset that I have to be around them. I am ready to gather around People like myself who can care less. I don't have time to be imprisoned for weak Characters. President Trump needs to address who is who and stop violators from coming to my home. OR do not allow the four Government Agencies to call me crazy when I do something about it. Like unlawfully hold my compensation overdue.

                                          OK, I'm a 'Boomer', so what. I have all I need, a house, a car, no debts, money in the bank, and I'm retired so I don't need a job. You all can blame us for what you now have to live with but I'm probably going to die soon and wiln't care any more. If you don't like the world we left you with, well then too bad, I don't give a shit. It's yours now, live with it or not. Blaming me for what you have (or don't) is not of my concern, and shitting on me wiln't make your life any better. And just so you know I didn't bring any kids into this world as I saw how crappy the world was turning into. If you have anyone to blame it is YOUR parents, not me. If you don't like the world you live in - then fix it for yourselves. I didn't make this mess, look to the wealthy raping the world economy, political and religious corruption and propaganda for the guilty. We've become the target for what is wrong, but we are not to blame as a generation. Deal with it. 11-18-2019.

                                            ok boomer with your long ass comments that noone's really gonna read. You people love to do that on the internet as if it makes any difference lol. Get with it, gramps. Noone cares about your opinion. Take your pills and go die. Most of us can't wait for it. Sooner or later, you'll be in a nursing home full of Millenial nurses who will finally have their revenge on your frail little ass.

                                              There's nothing wrong with the phrase except that it's irritating. and I'm not a boomer, although I wish I was. bering part of the Australian National basketball team would be pretty amazing.

                                                    Honestly whenever somebody uses "ok boomer" as a cop-out in a debate I just reply "ok, snowflake"

                                                          Think about this. He wrote out the full word Boomer while he just wrote the shortened phrase the n-word. I think that if Boomer was as offensive as the n word, why didn’t he just type the full version of the n word. it’s obviously more offensive if your to afraid to spell it or say it.

                                                                  Your precious cell phone, Internet, and apps exist, and hell, YOU exist at all because of the boomers. The Greatest Generation had been through WW1, WW2, the Great Depression and if they hadn't done what they had done, none of us would be here so I suggest you open your eyes and choose your battles. It was the Boomers and prior that led a society where you could leave your doors and windows unlocked, not worry about your kid being taken by someone or wandering 50 feet away from you in the store, and had made the greatest advances in technology mankind has ever seen. I fear the day the power grid goes down for 5 days, people are so spoiled and can't even handle being without their phone for a couple hours. Most 30 year old men can't even change a tire, we have become a nation of wimps. Now crime and everybody being so touchy about everything. Remember these other countries like Russia and China are disciplined, and most of their regular citizens know how to rough it when they need to. We are in for some bad times if we don't start toughening up.
