    This rudderless group known as Teabaggers appear to be a group of over-weight seniors who may have once been "baby-boomers." This presents an interesting question to ask the generation that is so well associated with Woodstock. Cut Government spending, but don't cut my programs? What is going on here? Is this payback time? This is ridiculous, are teabaggers, baby-boomers?

    Teabagger
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Further information: Tea Party movement and Tea Party protests


    ....Tea Party protests were formed to critique United States government tax and spending policies. The term refers to those who originally participated in an email campaign titled "Mailing Tea Bags to Washington, DC" which the New American Tea Party blog disavowed. The tactic was and continues to be advocated, though sometimes for tea bag labels only, on multiple "tea party" websites.

    The verb to "tea bag", hence "tea bagger", to describe these protesters has been used by several pundits and journalists after it appeared self-referentially on signs at Tea Party rallies, distributed by "FReeRepublic.Com". Anderson Cooper apologized for using the term. Ridiculing the movement has produced death threats.

    The term's growth in the political arena earned attention by the Oxford American Dictionary, and the word "teabagger" achieved finalist status for the OAD Word of the Year...

    No. The Woodstock kids are now college professors.

    This is bad. You are giving the Woodstock baby-boomers a bad name.

    The majority of the Woodstock baby boomers gave themselves a bad name.

    Now come on. This thread does seem ridiculous at first consideration. We were laughing at our baby-boomer grandpop when the idea for the thread came up. We can not ignore the fact that the demographics for baby-boomers and teabaggers are quite similar. According to this link babyboomers were born between 1946 and 1964 making the youngest baby boomers age 45. It is kind of funny when you think about it, please share your thoughts?

    What is the Baby Boomer Age?

    Teabaggers are the Me Generation of the 80's.
