"Unfortunately, most of us will probably be long gone and living under a mound of dirt before you understand the immaturity of those words and your attitudes and realize that it's much easier to blame someone else than to take responsibility for yourselves. It's much easier to whine and complain than to create and develop in an uncharted field.

Hopefully, your children and your grandchildren won't be like you. Hopefully, they won't blame you for all the ills of the world, but will accept the world into which they were born as a reality and deal with it."

Well said. Unfortunately each new generation does this and thinks they are on to something new. The inherent imperfection of mankind assures this. I guess its just a stage...a learning process each generation goes thru.

No, To quote previously

"This anger towards the baby boomers is different from the past. In the past previous hostility between generations usually faded away as the younger generation matured. In today's case, I see the opposite happening with hostility toward the older baby boomers growing as the X & Ys age. The reason is because we have been propagandized during school and in the media on how great the 60s were and how enlightened the baby boomers are and it's not until we age that we start to see the damage to this country they and their "good intentions" have done. They are in power now and I feel in order to go forward we have to break the "Myth" of the baby boomers which would help in starting to get them out of power and undoing the damage they done."

With me it's not that I am a young whippersnapper complaining about the older generations because I have the up most respect for the WWII generation. Yes they weren't perfect and did start the ball rolling on these socialist programs and way of thinking but at least they did something like save the world from fascism and unlike the baby boomers they weren't actively working to undo all the institutions and the Constitution that made America great.

Here is one Baby Boomer I can respect take on your generation.

Click the audio link on the site (It takes about 1:50 before he gets into it), Even Rush in referring to the Baby Boomers calls them "A group I am ashamed to be a part of"

BTW. Baby Boomers shouldn't be the one to talk about not respecting the older generations since Baby Boomers even to this day have always thought of the WWII generation as a bunch of uneducated simpletons.
