A shocking report has come to light exposing yet another Boomer scheme to steal money from young people.
Hundreds of baby boomers are taking classes at the University of Minnesota as part of its Senior Citizen Education Program — and all for just $10 per credit.

This report highlights the pernicious levels of graft and outright theft that Baby Boomers will stoop to in their quest to never grow up and start paying for things like adults.
Millennials are absolutely livid.
Some choice responses:
Neat, now that they’ve made it damn near financially unaffordable for everyone else.

Cool so they get next to free college twice. Super cool.

So, no student loan debt for these folks who could really afford to pay the real cost?

Literally every single comment in that thread is complaining about how blatantly unfair and ageist this scheme is.
I didn’t have to cherry-pick anything because Boomer hate is very real, and not a meme.
But it’s a double standard to expect kids straight out of high school to pay over 50x the amount these baby boomers are getting. Like make it equal, I’m not sure why it makes sense for them to get these incredible rates when millions of kids can’t afford theirs.

Despite this, some Boomers decided to show up in the comments section to tut-tut the youth and tell them “not to resent Boomers,” even though hating Boomers is a natural and sane response from any rational person.
Twin cities boomer, long aware of this. Not quite old enough. Interesting how this “feel-good” story generated such venom in replies. Understandable. I’m for free tuition & support candidates w that proposal. But truly powerful WANT us fighting over crumbs. Don’t resent us.

You and I have lived under the Boomer Occupation Government for every single day of our lives. For many years, we didn’t even know what was going on, but we could feel like something was off. Now, more and more young people are waking up to the reality that society is geared towards suiting their tastes and catering to the preferences of the Psychopath Generation. No other generation matters in the West.
And no matter how much Millennials whine about having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars on education, the Boomer will just lean back in his chair and let out a hearty cackle as he coasts by on his state-subsidized $10 classes. Classes that he doesn’t even need because he is too old to learn anything new, don’t need to work for a living and has years of accumulated damage in his brain from eating lead paint chips.
At this point, I honestly think that mad AF Millennials are going to just start attacking these Boomers on campus. All it will take is just one ill-timed and unrequested lecture on bootstraps at a creative writing seminar. The sheer hypocrisy of a state-subsidized, pension-collecting, house-owning, brain-addled Boomer chiding the whippersnappers about how good they have it will no doubt cause someone to just fucking snap.
Wait. These bootstrapping, I did it myselfers are getting to take classes for the price of two shitty lattes… and probably still complain that the reason current students are in debt is avocado toast and participation trophies.

I would honestly consider racking up a couple of thousand dollars worth of debt just to sit in on some of these courses and see the fireworks fly.
The truth of the matter is that the Boomers will never stop stealing the money until the day they die – and we all should understand at this point that they will never die.
We are a few years out from the next Boomer fad, which will no doubt involve paying indebted Zoomers for their blood and plasma as these literal vampires discover that young blood can give them another decade of life.
This problem isn’t going anywhere.
The Day of the Pillow can’t come soon enough.
