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, worshipped 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 also remember, 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 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 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."

I am with the "Ole Codger Corps" and would like to "second" the majority of the opinion above. True, I have experienced the majority of what the "Ole Gezzer Group" mentioned. I would add; don't think this is a "Republican vs. Democrat" issue. It is an issue of doing what is right for America and our form of government. Like in the Big One (WWII), everyone must chip in to solve the problems America has today! And lets stop using the word "Entitlements" for SS and Medicare. Most of us Codgers have already paid a great share of our earnings to these programs. Managing them was not our responsibility, but the US Government. The only entitlements going on today in a grand scale is the amount of compensation being voted on by Boards of Directors to the executives of public corporations. If you want to use the word "Entitlements" use it in that sense - it presents a truer picture. Ask any stockholder of a public corporation today and I am positive they will agree!

Us old Geezers!!!! Empty I apologize on behalf of us Baby Boomers

Post by AZhombre Tue Sep 20, 2011 9:43 pm

At the beginning of every semester, I apologize to my college students on behalf of my generation, the Baby Boomers, for screwing things up for them (national debt, abortions, lack of morality and ethics, just to name a few). Now I have something (Us Old Geezers) I can also share with them that may help unite both the young and old in making Real Change! :cheers:

I am a representative of the "Middle Aged Militia". I agree with both the Grey-Haired Brigade and Ole Codger Corps. In addition I have seen voters become lazy in the way some vote. It is too easy to vote for a party instead of the person. Since when does a single party represent everything you want our government to be? There are too many party members that use their positions to take your money to fill their pockets and then pass the most idiotic bills that pass through government. The only way to get rid of them is to vote for the person not the party. Be responsible for the vote you cast by knowing who you are voting for and not by blindly voting for a party. If you don't have the time to make an informed decision don't take the time to vote. Leave those decisions to the people that really care about their country.

Disclaimer: My view may not be representative of all middle aged persons. Not everyone can be a member of the Middle Aged Militia where common sense is not only a necessity it is required. If Jersey Shore is one of your favorite shows please refrain from voting, you clearly do not have the capacity for clear reasoning.
