MTV Networks president Van Toffler reiterated the network's devotion to millennials. "We're pushing Generation X out," Toffler said. "We're slaves to our different audiences, for MTV that's millennials, who are vastly different than Generation X; they're definitely less cynical."Gen Xers made MTV watching Headbanger's Ball, Yo MTV Raps! and all the angst riddled Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Melvins and Alice in Chains videos.
However, Generation X , as a group is outnumbered by the gracelessly aging Boomers and the petulant Millennials. We're the Prince Charles of America. Always waiting and soon to be pushed aside for the next in line or is that too cynical?
Never forget the Boomers had to have the Big Block 454 107 octane gas guzzlers for crusin' the strip in their youth and then had to have the 5-Ton Mega-sized SUVs in their dotage. Now they have to have daily injections of botox in their faces and collagen in their asses which have spiked medical costs.
So, We Xers are going to face the full wrath of the Health Care Crisis and the Gasoline Crisis. Because the Millennials are going to out vote us and send us to Government Health Care 'Death Panels', fortunately they'll be sending us in three wheeled electric vehicles so maybe we'll be able to escape.
