    Gray Haired Geezer

    This may be too political, if so the mods should remove. But i am one of these and have lived the times and remember having an outhouse.

    Zip.



    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 about 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 'Cool-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 2012 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 2012 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."

    TRUTH is HATE
