BOOMER PATROL – It’s Time to Go

The latest Boomer Patrol is live and kicking.

IT’S TIME TO GO

Pillows are the gift to the Boomer

The Reaper’s got ‘em everywhere.

He cleared the floors, unlocked the doors, lights out

And you can save the prayer.

You saw the Reaper’s hood and understood

And your heart just got to the point it’s gonna blow.

You were doing your best ’till the punch in the chest

And the Reaper said there’s something you should know.

He said Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Time’s up now it’s time to go

Now everybody down with a cushion

And they’re starting the pushing

And it’s a final solution

And everybody cool

Your heart rate’s getting fast, your time is past

And you can feel the flow

All you wanna do is make it stop

So you call the docs, but the docs they never show

The Reaper sees your fear, so pulls you near

Says son, there’s something you ought to know.

He said time ceases its marches at the pearly arches

And that’s what we’re here for.

He said Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Boomer now it’s time to go

Time’s up now I told you so

Now everybody down with a cushion

And they’re starting the pushing

And it’s a final solution

And everybody cool

The Reaper’s gonna find you Boomer

He doesn’t have a sense of humor

Reaper is the pillow, the pillow is the Reaper’s scythe

Pillow Time

Another hit from Boomer Patrol! You can hear it at Soundcloud.

Pillow time
Open all the drawers and press it down onto your face
Pillow time
All the lights go out now with a gentle hand on a pillowcase
Pillow time
One last breath preceding death, there’s nothing left that you’ve got to fear
Pillow time
You won’t go to Heaven, but you can’t stay here

I know who still thinks they’re really great
I know who taught all of us to hate
I know who I want to suffocate
And send very far away

Pillow time
Time for you to go to back to the nothing you used to be from
Pillow time
This one won’t be over ‘til you feel comfortably numb
This isn’t paralepsis, it’s time to hit the exits
There’s no need to pretend
Pillow time
Every generation is another generation’s end, yeah

I know Boomer is a metaphor
I know what they have to answer for
No one wants to see them anymore
Now please just go away

Pillow time
Time for you to go to back to the nothing you used to be from

I know who still thinks they’re wonderful
I know who is insufferable
I know death is non-refundable
Hush now and go away

Pillow time
Every generation is another generation’s end

The Good Boomer

VD: We don’t need another Boomer. I disavow @mitchellvii.

BOOMER: Now now…remember, boomers are the most gaslit, Bernays’d generation in human history. Many of us are good people. #CaseByCaseBasis

VD: You are good people. That’s why you get the special super-soft pillow.

Just Go, Boomer

What is it about Boomers and Gammas that they can’t simply shut up and go away in peace. They always have to make some sort of formal announcement before flouncing away, just to make sure that everyone is aware that the Special Boy’s specialness will no longer be available to them.

On October 19th, I will be deleting my Gab account. If you still want to follow me, I’ll be at http://gettr.com/user/mitchellvii.

Sorry, but I just can’t hang with the negativity here.

I’ll have more followers on GETTR in a month than I have here – and they will be optimistic patriots ready to work for 2022!

I don’t belong here.

I’m out. Please follow me on http://gettr.com/user/mitchellvii

This was my second response. My first response, of course, was: “who is Bill Mitchell?” To which I discovered the answer was “Boomercon grifter”. This made me laugh. He should probably stay away from the chans too, as Facebook is clearly more his style.

Stop, Boomer

Boomer Patrol is back with another lethal track. You can listen to it over on Soundcloud.

There’s something happenin’ here

And it fills every Boomer with fear

There’s a man with a pillow right there

So you know, you’ve got to beware

Think it’s time you

Stop, Boomer

What’s that sound?

Everybody knows what’s coming down

There’s battle lines being drawn

They got the right to say the Boomers were wrong

Young people speaking their rage

Gettin’ so much resistance to turnin’ the page

Think it’s time you

Stop, Boomer

What’s that sound?

Everybody knows what’s coming down

What kind of thoughts go through their heads

A million Boomers in their beds

Holdin’ on to a dyin’ gestalt

They all say, it wasn’t my fault

It’s time you

Stop, Boomer

What’s that sound?

Everybody knows what’s coming down

Trepidation strikes deep

Of promises the Reaper will keep

It ends when you’re always afraid

Eventually the pillows come and take you away

Stop, Boomer, BOOMER PATROL

You Shouldn’t Hate Us

Of all the Boomers that ever Boomed, this Boomer has written what appears to be the most Boomeriffic editorial to ever appear in print.

Baby boomers who cried “Don’t Trust Anyone Over 30” during the Vietnam War should be scared to death of millennials. Because, at least among the Twitterati, they hate us — they really, really hate us.

Last week I took a beating from younger readers over an essay I wrote lamenting the decline of the “power lunch.” Although it only partly blamed the phenomenon on millennial habits — e.g., preferring avocado and kale to beef and baked potatoes — hundreds of thousands on Twitter either posted or retweeted such insults as “Old man yells at lunch table” (I’m 69), “What’s it like to be an antique?” and “We’re the ones doing the actual lunches while you’re having three-martini lunches.”

Millennials (and to some extent their Gen-X and Gen-Z brethren) hate their elders with a ferocity never before seen in our culture. Egged on by the media-savvy likes of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, they blame prolonged heat waves on boomers who supposedly stood by and cheered as the Earth went up in flames. The phrase “OK BOOMER” has now become young people’s “repeated retort to the problem of older people who just don’t get it,” marking “the end of friendly generational relations,” The New York Times declared last week. According to the article, a teen designer has already sold $10,000 worth of sweatshirts with the “OK BOOMER” slogan repeated many times on the front, ending with the line, “Have a terrible day.”

Generation gaps will always be with us. Historian Marc Wortman found a generational split over sending young men off to war way back in 1941. But unlike those of us who came of age in the 1960s-early 1970s, who merely disapproved of our elders’ “colonialist” wars and shag rugs, millennials (born between 1980-1994) can’t stand the air we boomers breathe.

Too many millennials whine that their complacent elders bequeathed them a rotten America and a rotten world — economic malaise that will leave them with lousier lives than their parents and a planet on fire from climate change. But if they spent more time studying actual history, which can’t easily be found on iPhones, they’d know that boomers were, and remain, the most socially and environmentally conscious generation America ever has ever known.

It’s hilarious, and ever-so-typical, that the Boomer STILL doesn’t realize that Generation X hates the Boomers far more than the Millennials ever have or than the Zoomers ever will. This Boomer will literally go to his grave completely bewildered by the fact that literally none of the younger generations think he’s cool, look up to him, respect him, or even like him a tiny little bit. If he thinks the Millennial hatred for Boomers is extreme, well, let’s just say he’s going to need a considerably bigger adjective to reasonably describe Generation X’s opinion of them.

It’s incredible, and yet ever-so-typical, that he actually thinks it is whining for the younger generations to object in any way to having had both their nation and their world destroyed by a wicked generation that aggressively devalued the very faith, traditions, and morals on which both were resting. He doesn’t realize that Boomers being “the most socially and environmentally conscious generation America ever has ever known” isn’t an excuse or a defense, it’s an unwitting confession of guilt.

I’d give him six of five pillows for this one, just to be sure.

Ain’t No Boomer Like A Gab Boomer

“No one will be part of the New World Order unless he carries out an act of worship to Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he receives Luciferian initiation.”
—David Spangler, 1978

The vaccine is not, to the best of my knowledge, the Biblical Mark of the Beast. The Beast has not yet revealed himself. But the act of receiving the vaccine does appear to be submission to, and participation in, a Luciferian initiation rite.

God knows what is in a man’s heart. But Satan doesn’t care, he just wants your submission.

When we were attacked in world war 2, we rolled up our sleeves and beat the Nazis and Japanese by working together as a country. Today, we have a virus that can kill people and all we have to do is get a simple shot, backed by science, and you pussies are too afraid to get it. Fucking communist cowards.

Ok Boomer. Enjoy your heart attack.

Taking Care of Boomers

You get up every day

And you hear the Boomers play another

Double shot of Beatles and the Stones

You’re sick of their oppression

And the endless self-obsession

Here’s your chance, so go make your bones

Now you know the train is fine

Visitors are out by nine

Ain’t no one gonna get in your way

If you ever start to doubt

Look at me I’m chilling out

I love to work with Boomers all day

And I’ll be

Taking care of Boomers (every night)

Taking care of Boomers (it’s all right)

I’ve been taking care of Boomers (don’t you know)

Taking care of Boomers and working my pillow

Hush now

Now as a nursing house keeper

You could be a Grim Reaper

You just have to find the right pillow

Go and get yourself a cushion

Drop it down and start pushing

It won’t take you long to make ‘em mellow

Send ‘em to a better place

With a smile on your face

We just help them out of the way

What the hell you waiting for

You’ll be coming back for more

We love to work with Boomers all day

And we’ve been

Taking care of Boomers (every night)

Taking care of Boomers (it’s all right)

We’ve been taking care of Boomers (don’t you know)

Taking care of Boomers and working my pillow

Take good care of those Boomers

We’ll put some nice flowers on their graves

You’re ready for the action

And you’ve got the satisfaction

Of knowing that you’re shutting ‘em down

It feels so right it can’t be wrong

And it won’t take very long

Not a one, will make a sound

Once you’re done it’s time to roll

No need to hurry take it slow

Ain’t nothing gonna get in your way

If you ever start to doubt

Look at me I’m chilling out

I love to work with Boomers all day

70 is the new 40!

The Baby Boomers are at it again. See, even at 70 they are young, sexy, cool, and fun!

This is a year of big birthdays, for, believe it or not, 2017 is when the baby boomer turns 70. Ever-youthful Joanna Lumley, Bill Clinton and Cher are 70 already and are now joined by a million new septuagenarians this year — more than ever before. To mark this, Channel 4 has a new four-part TV series called The Baby Boomers’ Guide To Growing Old. Its aim? To show just how young 70 really is.

The baby boomers have always been rule breakers. Born in peacetime, with the freedom to enjoy the Sixties’ summer of love, they’re now completely redefining ‘old age’. They may be doting grandparents, but they’re also going to music festivals, travelling the globe, wearing skinny jeans, remodelling their houses and feeling fitter and healthier than they’ve ever been.

(rolls eyes) To think they can’t figure out why everyone younger despises them. But why, when they are “redefining old age”? And, apparently, the concept of “doting”.

At this point, you’d think they’d be getting embarrassed by their generational narcissism. The funny thing is that they are so self-absorbed that they don’t even realize how ridiculous they are. I mean, did you see a single article about Generation X proclaiming “40 is the new 20”? For that matter, did you ever see a single article about Generation X turning any age at all?

Of course not. Because we’re not a generation of attention-craving buffoons.


Boomercide

The Zman has a few ideas concerning why their grandchildren hate the Boomers:

I’ve never cared for generational politics so maybe that’s why I have no trouble with the younger generation. In my youth, I was forced to sit through endless lectures by Baby Boomer teachers about how Generation X was a bunch of slackers. By the time I reached high school, I could, from memory, draw maps of the Ho Chi Min Trail and recite the playlist at Woodstock, despite having no interest in either. I’ve always thought that my generation’s disinterest was due to having to sit through so many Boomer sermons.

If you are a Boomer reading this, you are no doubt outraged, scandalized and offended at my comments. Just to be clear, I’m not talking about you. You are an exception. In fact, you are unique, like a snowflake, a special creation that stands in stark contrast to the conformity of your coevals. You’re special! That’s always been the amusing part about Boomer culture. They love talking about themselves, but hate it when others talk about them….

Anyway, hanging around the bad kids on-line, I’ve noted their extreme hostility to Baby Boomers and Boomer politics. It’s not the normal youthful rejection of their parent’s stuff as their parents are not Boomers. In the case of the 20-somethings, their parents are my generation. Their grandparents are the Boomers. This means the so-called Gen-Z and Millennials literally want to push granny off a cliff. I’ve read screeds by youngsters to that effect. They really hate the Boomers and not in an abstract way.

The coming Boomercide, if it happens, is going to be triggered by some portly old guys in comfort waist slacks, showing up at an alt-right rally wearing tricorne hats, preaching “heritage not hate.” It is the Boomer impulse to accept the morality of the Left while pretending to reject the consequence of it, that enrages the youth. Whatever you want to say about the alt-right kids, they have this one thing right. Boomer politics is all about the so-called conservatives swearing that the liberals are the real racists, as if it matters.

We know why Generation X hates the Boomers. We’ve had to listen to variations of their “70 is the new 50” narcissism all our lives and endure their babbling about how their inferior, mush-sounding, crudely recorded analog music played by inept musicians with rudimentary technique is the greatest music created in human history. (I’m not arguing for A Flock of Seagulls here, I’m merely pointing out that neither the Beatles nor Led Zeppelin have anything on Mozart and Vivaldi.)

But that’s not why the younger generations hate them. First, I’ve noticed that the Baby Boomers, on average, absolutely suck as grandparents. Most kids I knew growing up knew their grandparents well and spent loads of time with them. As for me, I was closer to my maternal grandparents than anyone else in my extended family; I still miss them greatly today. But I am amazed to observe how little time many grandparents now want to spend with their grandkids.

Second, I think that the younger generations, growing up in harder times and facing a much more challenging future, are angry at the Baby Boomers for squandering what should have been their inheritance of Western civilization and white America. Even though it’s not necessarily their fault – Baby Boomers were not responsible for the Immigration Act of 1965 or the Civil Rights movement or the Great Society – the Baby Boomers supported, and in most cases, still support those terrible, dyscivilizational catastrophes. As one commenter there noted, Boomers are the r-Selected offspring of WWII rabbits, “You’ll never want for anything like I did!”

Third, the Baby Boomers grew up in an idyllic white Norman Rockwell picture. That alone is sufficient for the growing and statistically significant non-white minority among the younger generations to hate them.

But a GenXer should not speak for the succeeding generations. Those are merely my suspicions. If you are younger than Generation X, then speak for yourself. Do you admire or loathe the Baby Boomers? Do you wish to emulate them and embrace their ideals or reject them and all their works? Do you share GenX’s cynicism or do you consider us to be overly pessimistic? Speak for yourself.

And if you are a Baby Boomer, do your best to restrain your urge to inform everyone how they really feel about your generation. I’m not asking you how you feel about it, and remember, the Zman has already acknowledged that you are a special snowflake, rare if not unique among your g-g-generation. I’m not asking the Gen Xers either, as we already know their opinions on the matter. And let me say as well that I am perfectly aware that macro is not micro and I personally admire those Baby Boomers who somehow managed to cast off the disastrous spirit of their g-g-generation. For example, I think this Boomer has a perceptive take on the situation.

Our poor decisions as Boomers and those of our parents (Silents voted for the folks who put the 1965 immigration act into effect) obliterated them. So it’s no longer worth kvetching about “the youth,” in the same way that these young whites can complain about “the boomers.” The boomers are 90%+ white Americans with several generations of history and tradition, just like their parents. “The youth,” in the America of today are nearing a Mestizo plurality and the shrinking white youth cohort is now politically eclipsed by every other stripe in the liberal rainbow.

Isolating the white youth, I’d say they’re about as good of stock as we ever had. Trouble is, we left them to institutions that were obviously out to destroy them, fill their heads with madness, and let their non-white peers batter them into submission. And somehow by no fault of our own a whole bunch of them have founded the alt-right and got a serious reactionary movement going.

It’s no small feat what the young white men of today have accomplished. Personally, I think it’s time to lend a hand rather than punch down. We earned the licks we’re getting. So far as I’m concerned, the right-wing youth can pillory us all day.

That, I think, is the important point. Even now, it’s still not too late for Baby Boomers to throw what is left of the weight of their generational cohort to help their grandchildren and great-grandchildren rather than hinder them.

UPDATE: Boomer narcissism in action.

Real phone call with my Boomer Mom:

ME: Had a friend commit suicide & another die of cancer
