You and I are Members, Don’t Delete, Just Read, Remember and Pass on

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.

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We are probably considered old fashioned and outdated
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 Vietnam. 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 youngsters 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 or 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.
In the event you’re not a Gray-Haired Geezer, you still are eligible,
and encouraged, to sign on.
