Old Geezers

                        Old Geezers 

 

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth

47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an

analysis of census data released Monday.  If all of us “old farts” have all of the

money, then let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be

after feathering their own nests.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some
cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire.
Others have been retired for some  time. We walk a little slower these days and

our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised

our children, worshiped our God and  grown old together. Yes, we are the ones

some refer to as being over the hill,  and that is probably true. But before writing

us off completely, there are a few  things that need to be taken into consideration.

 

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead
America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines,

25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For
those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric
and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started
with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

 

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a

few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World

War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote  The Pledge of Allegiance,

and know where to place our hand while doing so. We  wore the uniform of our

country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the

Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of

the Brave.”  We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the

words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart,

and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have

lived what many of you have only read in history  books and we feel no obligation

to apologize to anyone for America.
  Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight 
left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now 
we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away 
from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and 
domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to 
destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are 
going to remain silent.
 
It was mostly the young people of this nation who  elected Obama and the

Democratic Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was

nothing but “Hype and Lies.”
 
You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you
don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their

careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as 
patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are 
now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have 
sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’ Now 
you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, 
higher taxes, and less freedom. 
           

This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the

Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a  paycheck and a fancy house.
 
Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we

are going to take back our nation. We may drive  a little slower than you would

like but we get where we’re going, and in 2014 we’re going to the polls by the millions. 
 
This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It  belongs to “We the People” and “We the
People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a

better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time

you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your
heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Grey-Haired 
Brigade.”
 
Footnote:   This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will

circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county. 
 
Can you feel the ground shaking???  It’s not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.
