The generation born from 1943 to 1960. Towards the end of World War II, there was a surge in births hence the name "Baby Boom". During the 1960s, the Baby Boomers made up the core of the Counterculture, opposed to the Vietnam War and the Establishment. They are the parents of Generation X (born from 1961-1981) and Generation Y (born from 1982-2003).
The Baby Boomers protested the Establishment extensively in the 1960s which is ironic since today, most of the Boomers make up the Establishment.

The generation that destroyed the West.
This fucking baby boomer fought no wars, underfunded the welfare state, failed to have any kids, bought the White Album and was a generally self-righteous hippy cunt while Rome burned. Now he wants MY taxes to pay his pension and medical costs for 40 years of mounting senility? Fuck that.

The most self-righteous, self-important, incredibly arrogant generation of all time. The progeny of the Greatest and Silent Generations, who grew up with the hardship of the Great Depression and won World War 2, the baby boomers had everything handed to them on a silver platter from day 1.

They act as if the world (particularly THEIR progeny, Generations X and Y) owes them a gigantic debt of gratitude for how they perceived they changed society. They romanticize their promiscuous, drug-induced escapades as having been some sort of Earth-shaking cultural movement that changed the course of history. As if they were the first and last generation to get fucked up and have random sex, and as if that somehow changed the world.

By the 80s every hippie had somehow lost touch with his values of altruism, free love, and selflessness, and had transformed into a suit-wearing, cutthroat yuppie. By now he's a middle-class suburbanite slob. Growing increasingly irrelevant, the baby boomer is trying to insist that his generation was God's gift to the world when in reality it was a selfish, petty, hedonistic generation that turned its back on everything it once stood for.

With modern medicine and a society that is increasingly health-conscious, the boomers are guaranteed to live on for decades beyond their utility, leeching off their posterity (a younger generation smaller than their predecessors, the first Americans who failed to reproduce at a sustainable rate) to the very end.
Baby Boomers: You punk kids should show some respect for your elders!

I watched in horror as my baby boomer boss pounded on the keyboard in an attempt to "figure out the e-mail."

An American who was born between 1941 and 1955. This generation is collectively known as "the baby boomers" or "the boomers" and was given everything it ever wanted through the hard work of its parents. Many of these boomers grew up to be self-righteous individuals who today are attempting to destroy every well-meaning public service program in existence.

In response to the 1970's oil crisis, the boomers passed legislation to expand the fuel efficiency of motorized vehicles. After the crisis subsided however, the boomers decided to forgo their efforts instead of learning from the experience, causing America to pay dearly today as a result. Their ridiculous spending in the housing market only combined with this folly to produce the economic meltdown that the country knows all-too-well today.

Favorite pass-times include bullying 20-somethings over perceived irresponsibility, overeating, not exercising, spending large sums of money, and introducing corrupt maladaptive political legislation. Unfortunately specific examples would not serve to prove these concepts well, as no set of examples could sufficiently express the sheer stupidity and foolishness that the boomers have exhibited time and time again in The United States of America.

Overall, their generation will go down in the history books as being the most selfish and maladaptive the world has ever known.
College Student: "Wait, so you're telling me that just because I'm not over the age of 24 the federal government refuses to acknowledge the fact that I am financially independent and thus will not give me any more financial aid than I can already acquire?"
Financial Aid Adviser: "That's right. I'm sorry to say it, but the Baby Boomers just don't care about your generation that much... I'm sorry."

Baby Boomer- (n) 1. An incompetent, fat, grey, lazy product of the "greatest generation," born between 1941 and 1955. 2. The nemesis of Gen X. 3. Former "Hippie" currently holding tenured academic professorship in disciplines requiring intelligence beyond their predetermined genetic capacity for advanced abstract reasoning. 4. Member of the largest demographic bubble in America that also refuses to retire. See "Viagrant"
1. Mr. Smith, an overweight, diabetic Baby Boomer and father of two comes from a family of accomplished Engineers and WWII veterans, yet, he has held his current position since the mid-1970's as a clerk/supervisor in an area that could easily be automated with computer code.

2. I can't believe that Baby Boomer is still my boss.

3. Not only I will have to pay for this Hippie's Medicare for the next 40 years, but this same Baby Boomer may very well reject my proposal for PhD research because my work would diametrically oppose everything he has championed since Johnson was President of the US.

4. I can't believe I have a Master's degree and military experience, but my boss, Mr. Smith, a Baby Boomer that graduated high school way back in the 60's, just won't retire, thus preventing me from advancing past him, as easily as I normally could!
