Fact: Boomer accomplishments include civil rights, women's lib, ending the Vietnam War, sending men to the moon, and ending the Cold War.
Fact: Big Oil, Coal, Tobacco, Pharma and capitalism all existed long before boomers were born.

All I have to add as a genXer is that it is quite telling when one certain generation blames a different generation for the troubles today instead of coming up with unique and fresh ideas to solve them like every generation before has had to do. Deal with what is, and let the rest go for x sake.
