Stop Blaming Millennials For Gen-Z Irresponsibility

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Let’s all try to get our generations straight, mmm-kay? – Everybody, please stop blaming Millennials for crap Gen-Z is doing.

This is the crap I’m talking about right here:

And this:

Those irresponsible people are college students. This week, thousands of them are out partying for Spring Break on the beaches of Florida, which Governor Ron DeSantis – who has to this point been an amazingly competent and effective Governor – refuses to close because it would hurt business. While the rest of the country is focused in on dealing with a major national crisis, he seems intent on doing his best imitation of Mayor Larry Vaughn from the movie “Jaws.”

Governor DeSantis was born in 1978. He is much closer to being a Millennial than current college students. For those who aren’t aware, the Millennial generation consists of people born from the early 1980s through the early 1990s. Current college students were born in the late 1990s through early 2000s. Millennials are not our problem here.

Both of my own children are Millennials. My daughter, a mother of two, is currently working her butt off home schooling her daughters, age 7 and 10, because their schools are closed. My son gets up and goes to work for Amazon every day, working his own butt off to make an honest living.

Millennials in general are the young parents and young professionals of our society today. They’re the PTA members, the little league coaches and more and more, the city council and school board members and first responders who make our society work. Their generation unfortunately has gotten a bad reputation from the tiny minority of them who hang out screaming and wailing on Twitter and Instagram all day long.

I’m a Baby Boomer. My generation also got a bad rap from a minority who did little but take drugs and party all the time, while my wife and I and millions of the rest of us were getting up every morning and going to work our butts off trying to make an honest living and doing our best to raise our kids well.

Every generation gets a bad rap in one form or another, and Millennials have plenty of their own stuff to deal with without being blamed for stupid actions of a bunch of Gen-Z kids who are focused on partying on the beaches of Florida and being enabled by a Governor who is old enough to know better.

So, cut it out, ok?

Thanking you in advance.

That is all.
