Each Day 10,000 Boomers Reach Age 65.
“Currently, just 13% of Americans are ages 65 and older. By 2030, when all members of the Baby Boom generation have reached that age, fully 18% of the nation will be at least that age, according to Pew Research Center population projections. But don't tell Baby Boomers that they are old.”
“As the year 2011 began on Jan. 1, the oldest members of the Baby Boom generation celebrated their 65th birthday," according to the Pew Research Center Data Bank. "In fact, on that day, today, and for every day for the next 19 years, 10,000 baby boomers will reach age 65. The aging of this huge cohort of Americans (26% of the total U.S. population are Baby Boomers) will dramatically change the composition of the country.” Go here for more - Pew Research — “Baby Boomers Approach 65 — Glumly”

Since the 60s, Baby Boomers have scared the hell out of religious fundamentalists, conservatives of every stripe, die hard capitalists, pathocrats, and, most of all — Republicans in the U.S.A. Because you did not like what you found in nearly every phase of life, YOU changed it. Today, allied with like-minded Millennials and GenXers, Boomers have Earth Shaking Power to effect change for the better — worldwide.
