40 Things All Baby Boomers Think Are Cool. Baby Boomers of America, we're so deeply sorry to say this, but these things were never cool. No, it's time to accept that these choices were mistakes and move on to make better choices from now on.
Yes, yes, we know that some of these will be shocking and hard for you to accept. You may be angry, and you may disagree. And that's okay. Just know, even if you disagree, you are still wrong.
Baby boomers, aka people born between 1944 and 1964, are considered the greediest generation in American history. This title is mostly driven by the boomer-aged politicians who have repeatedly chosen to cut taxes rather than invest in the future of the country (such as education, infrastructure, and the like). Wealthy baby boomers introduced the ideals of "trickle down" economics, that major tax cuts would encourage the wealthy to spend more and that money would move down to the larger middle and lower classes.
But, those aren't the kind of mistakes we're talking about in this slideshow. No, no, no, we're going to (mostly) overlook the big things and, instead, focus on the more mundane mistakes that plague every generation after the baby boomers.
So, children of the boom, let's take a look at exactly where your generation went wrong and why those choices don't hold up in modern day.
