YOU AND I ARE MEMBERS

A friend sent this to me last night and I thought some of you might enjoy the message so here it is:


YOU & I ARE MEMBERS, DON'T DELETE, JUST READ 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.

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 one of many all over this once great county.

Can you feel the ground shaking???

It's not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

BTW Tot. I am gonna give you a freebie here: Which beach did you land on June 6 1944? And or, what part of Korea were you in when the million Chinese came over that hill?

You didn't happen to be one of them National Guard members that killed them four students at Kent State in '71 were you?

sebekm commented on Sunday, Mar 02, 2014 at 12:26 PM

Let the stampede begin.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Mar 02, 2014 at 16:03 PM

@Sebe. Please comfort me as to the source of the forthcoming stampede? Or is this just a wait and see thing?

The source will reveal much.

sebekm commented on Monday, Mar 03, 2014 at 14:01 PM

Okay - here it comes:

*The stampede starts here, where nearly 60% of Americans polled being disappointed with The Obama Presidency with 37% being VERY DISAPPOINTED:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/most-amer...

*Then it continues here where more than half of Americans polled believing that Mr. Obama - and by extension THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - are no longer respected overseas:

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/02...

*Then add to this all of the people who WOULD NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA AGAIN IF THEY KNEW THEN WHAT THEY KNOW NOW:

http://www.nationaljournal.com/politi...

http://www.redstate.com/2013/12/09/hi...

http://www.nationaljournal.com/magazi...

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles...

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/...

So whether it's a broad cross-section of Americans-at-large, or millennials, or Hispanics, or white men and women, or even the UNINSURED - it looks like a STAMPEDE TO ME.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Mar 03, 2014 at 15:54 PM

Well Sebe BHO ain't running again is he? I am sure that the GOP will do everything from calling Hillary an Accessory to a Sexual Predator, Old and Burnt Out, Mean and Intimidating, an Obama copy-cat, a feminist, an anti-feminist, a femi-nazi, and probably at the very least lay claim that she was born in the United States but she was born with testicals.

A wise man once said "we got a ways to go before the elections and anything could happen." Also: "The truth will gradually drip-drip-drip out..."

Call me when yall get your candidate. Try to pick someone who is a spokesman for a plurality of your party and wears a toupee made out of male pubic hair.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Mar 04, 2014 at 09:35 AM

@Sebe. Terribly inappropriate non sequitur to the blog. (March 3rd 14:01)

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Mar 04, 2014 at 13:07 PM

"Well Sebe BHO ain't running again is he?"

No, and one of my main points was that EVEN DEMOCRATS ARE GLAD FOR IT. You asked for the "stampede" and I gave it to you. There's even more evidence this morning:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/arti...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/page/20...

So as far as the "stampede" goes, huge numbers are beating feet AWAY from the Democrats and President Obama. It will show up in November AND in 2016 if the trends continue.

The only way the Dems can salvage the situation is to change their stripes, and I don't see that happening.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Mar 04, 2014 at 14:40 PM

Well if and when that happens...please feel free to come here and rub my nose in it. I can take it.

Who's yalls front runner for POTUS...I forgot... early onset Dementia)

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Mar 07, 2014 at 17:28 PM

My bet, he\she will be either a Democrat or a Republican. I don't think there is a Centrist-Right Party out there.!?

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 15:05 PM

"Well if and when that happens...please feel free to come here and rub my nose in it. I can take it."

Jimmy - I made a simple statement consisting of four words. You asked for clarification. Specifically: all I said was "let the stampede begin" and you asked for the "source" of that stampede. I provided you with The Full Monty, but I did not intend to "rub your nose" in anything.

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 15:18 PM

"Who's yalls front runner for POTUS...."

I really don't know. One article I saw said that if Hillary and Jeb run, they "clear the field" in their respective parties. The preliminary polling on that match-up had HRC up by double-digits at least.

The GOP is still fumbling around to find the platform - and the person - that they can rally around. Much the same as the way things were for the Democrats in the 70s and while Reagan/Bush the Elder were President. This is a normal operation of politics, and has occurred throughout American history. The party that is out of power always "wanders in the political wilderness" until they "find themselves" and retake power. Then it all starts over again with the other side doing the wandering.

Part of the reason is that the political makeup and desires of the American people are so fluid. We have a relatively short attention span and are a fickle bunch. My sense is that one thing the Democrats are facing RIGHT NOW is a spreading feeling through the non-Kool Aid drinkers on both sides that "it's time for a change." That feeling - coupled with tough economic times and the way things are going in foreign relations - are going to further inspire a "throw the bums out" mentality in the electorate.

All politics are local, but the big news is made at the national level. Right now, things are looking up nationally for the GOP, and the trend is downward for the Democrats. But that's only for now in 2014. My opinion is that the Republicans have yet to get their act together for 2016, and the big race then still in the Democrats' hands - it's theirs to lose.
