Kathleen Wallace: Gen X in many ways exemplifies the greed of the Boomers (look what age group encompasses the current Silicon Valley parasites) and the terrifying crisis of purpose that Millennials are known for. In short, we are maybe the worst of both worlds.
Kathleen Wallace: Trump supporters consider him a “strongman” but like all strongmen of the past, he keeps his personal tiny hands clean and his bone spurs shiny–all the while scraping and bowing to the authoritarians he so admires.
Kathleen Wallace: The average Amazon worker is toiling for a median pay of $28,446. And in a lot of places that is considered a very good job, even if workers have to urinate in bottles to stay on track.
