Biggest National Shame under Millenials should have been "being a Millenial."

"Discrimination, they totally left out my generation. But I guess that`s because I`m so special, I have my own separate Generation that starts and ends with me."

Dextrine, you`re wrong, and Murcu is right. The house was in the process of drafting articles of impeachment, but Nixon resigned before the vote.

The only two presidents to be impeached were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Neither were convicted at trial in the senate.

What I will remember the "Greatest Generation" for is voting to force the next three generations to pay for their Social Security and Medicare. They all got back 10 times more than they paid in, and the rest of us all got (and are still getting, and will for the foreseeable future continue to get) hosed.

Bah, Millennials are too young to have done shiit with their lives anyways, not all of the events that define that generation have happened yet.

The way i have seen the generations of America are this.

Interbellum Generation: born between 1900 and end of WW1
Greatest generation: born between end of WW1 and the end of WW2
Baby Boomers: born between end of WW2 and moon landing
Generation X: born between moon landing and beginning of Regan Presidency
Generation Y: born between beginning of Regan Presidency when the internet became mainstream (1996)
Millenial Generation: Born after the internet became mainstream.

That perty much sums up all the generations really nicely, but I really do like some of what the baby boomers have, like hippies and The Beatles.

Nixon wasn`t impeached. He was ALMOST impeached, but resigned.

All dates are approximate.

I`ll go with the Population Reference Bureau that lists Gen X from 1965-1982.

I was born in 1982.

Gen X = born in mid 60`s to late 70`s

Millennials (a.k.a. Gen Y) = born around 1980 to mid 90`s

"Of course this chart leaves out the fact that in recent years gay marriage has been legalized for the first time, the first black president has been elected..."

You`re trying to defend Millennials, but those things were done by Gen X. I`m actually right where the generations meet, so I`m not really biased. But, millennials are still too young to actually have any power.

Opiebreath, nobody would have to say it if people didn`t keep believing these silly charts are an acurate representation of our generation.

I don`t really agree with generation x`s biggest national shame, but whatever. This was a decent read.

Of course this chart tries to make it look like the latest generation is the most screwed up, has the least morals, is the weakest. It`s what has happened throughout history, people always
complain about the latest generation. Of course this chart leaves out the fact that in recent years gay marriage has been legalized for the first time, the first black president has been elected, and even though people are constantly talking about the internet like it is the downfall of civilization there is a lot of amazing and positive changes that have happened because of it.

This chart also doesn`t mention that the "greatest generation" had more than it`s fair share of flaws. Woman had no job options, racism, social conformity was encouraged, homophobia, suburban sprawl.
