According To An Analysis
January 1, 2020
According to an analysis of current census data, the average US household, headed by someone 65 or older, has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35. Referred to as senior citizens, old fogies, blue hairs, geezers, crocks and dinosaurs, some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others are from the Greatest Generation and already retired. We walk a bit slower. Our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together.
In school we studied English, history, math and the sciences, all of which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. We still use two spaces after a period when typing. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party lines, 25 cent gasoline, milk and ice being delivered to our homes.
We’re no doubt considered old fashioned and outdated by many, but there are just a few things you should know before completely writing us off.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. You may even see a tear running down our cheeks as we sing.
We actually have lived what many of you have read in history books..! We feel NO obligation to apologize to anyone for America.
Yes, we’re older and slower now, but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We love this country, fought and died for it, and now we‘re going to save it. It is our country and no one is going to take it from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic. This 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’re going to remain silent.
It was mostly the youth of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. They fell for “Hope and Change" from their college professors, in reality nothing but "Hype and Lies”. They need to taste socialism and see evil face to face to understand they don't like it after all. They're a lot of noise, most 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. Despite all the
education they’ve been given, they haven’t sense enough to see through the lies. Instead, they enthusiastically drank the Kool-Aid.
Well, not to worry, youngsters. The Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2016 we took back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you‘d like, but we do get where we're going. In 2020, we're driving to the polls again by the millions.
Feel the ground shaking..? It’s not an earthquake. It’s a STAMPEDE..!
So, next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor your country and thank God for the old geezers of the "Gray-Haired Brigade."
In God we still trust ... Amen..!
