looking out for number one...me!

as capitalism and conservatism fail, wingnuts look to blame someone for that black man socialist in the White House...
well, who's to blame for the state of America today? the boomers? Woodstock hippies? the greatest generation? the generation x or conservatives? I say conservatives, conservatism has put America perilously close to being made in China...The wingnuts are getting all worked up over the boomers and why they are responsible for the ills of the world, chiefly because the Woodstock generation was all about me, me, me. Well, who else should I being looking out for, you? No way Jose! The reality is growing up in California in the 60s was a dream, but a very violent time in America, and not at all a drugged out party all the time..that's just the myth and rightwingers alcoholic perception of the times...now let's look at some history and see who and what is really trying to kill America and who's trying to save her. Drugs: America's love of alcohol has clouded her thinking even today... the prohibition, if enforced, could have saved millions from a wasted life of feeding on the bottom. The Greatest Generation: during the war, this generation let illegal alien Mexicans across the border to help us at home with agriculture and general production, probably some of those wetbacks took care of some lonely wives too eh amigos? Now look at the problems we got!! boomers: music, rebellion and working class..moved us into the digital age and made my old guitars worth a fortune..THANK YOU DUDES!!!
generation x:
slackers and musicians and Rastafarians! coool! under 30 group..the loveliest generation and smart, too. gov't worker: smartest workers who worked long careers and watched the fort while others partied..they prepared for their futures!
The angry white male generation/ private sector/leftovers from the Nixon/J. Edgar Hoover era..BINGO!! these are the ones from all generations causing all the trouble..crying all the time, (most recently when male model Scott Brown voted for a jobs bill), blowing up gov't buildings, flying planes in the IRS, shooting people, spreading propaganda and molesting children..they are mostly white and mostly conservative. These are they guys who robbed the American people and gamed the system until the house of cards fell...Madoff, Enron, AIG, Wall Street stock manipulators, big oil, insurance and drug companies...and no regulation of these capitalism enterprises slowly killed the golden goose..capitalism can't survive under this model so naturally they are scared...and they will be the minority soon.. and that's far out!!

Interesting blog, but it’s missing an important part of the equation: Generation Jones (between the Boomers and Generation X). Google Generation Jones, and you’ll see it’s gotten lots of media attention, and many top commentators from many top publications and networks (Washington Post, Time magazine, NBC, Newsweek, ABC, etc.) now specifically use this term. In fact, the Associated Press' annual Trend Report chose the Rise of Generation Jones as the #1 trend of 2009. Here's a page with a good overview of recent media interest in GenJones: http://generationjones.com/2009latest.html

It is important to distinguish between the post-WWII demographic boom in births vs. the cultural generations born during that era. Generations are a function of the common formative experiences of its members, not the fertility rates of its parents. And most analysts now see generations as getting shorter (usually 10-15 years now), partly because of the acceleration of culture. Many experts now believe it breaks down more or less this way:

DEMOGRAPHIC boom in babies: 1946-1964
Baby Boom GENERATION: 1942-1953
Generation Jones: 1954-1965
Generation X: 1966-1978
Generation Y/Millennials: 1979-1993
