John-- I was born in that generation, but was never a part of it. Please don't paint all of us with the same brush. I was not given everything as a child and do not expect anything to be given to me. I have earned my retirement by saving money and staying out of debt. My favorite saying is that the Flower Children of the 60s are the Blooming Idiots of the 21st century. I was not a flower child, nor am I a blooming idiot, but I know some of my generation (and their children who HAVE been given everything) who are.

The choice that we face today is between freedoms on the one hand, and ruin on the other.

There has never been a generation in our history that has been given more than the generation which was born between 1945 and 1960.

They were given so much by their hard and hardy parents, who by fighting through a real economic depression and a great world war, helped bolster freedom for the free and bequeathed freedom to millions of others who lived in the twilight of tyranny.    

I call these sons and daughters of what we know as the Greatest...
