I’m 75 and I am tired!
Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.
I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I’m tired of being told that, out of “tolerance for other cultures,” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada, while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?
I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
Yes, I’m tired. But I’m also glad to be 75. Mostly because, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughters and grandsons.
Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.
Joe calls for Cuomo to step down. A lot of other big dems joined Biden. They don’t want this to take news time away from the vaccine.
Let’s get the DA to stop making up Trump violations and indict Andy. The senior deaths he is accused of causing can wait 30 years until he is tried for the sex stuff.
Is this Karma ? These creeps can’t keep political opinions out of events that support peace. Take your LGBTQI flag to Canada and fly it there.
Seattle’s Mayor should be in prison instead crying about murders. For 16 months the place was worse than Chicago. The only safe place was her home–protected by taxpayer paid security.
Nancy’s little Democrat anonymous whistle blower can’t sell his book. It’s a sad story.
At first Commie Sue was thought to be a Republican.
The World Record Editor: Is your report a world record, LL ?
I’ ll Say Cat: It sure is. Geraldo Rivera has always been a Radical Liberal Democrat. After they have the power to force you to have a medical treatment, what will they want ? Only 1 out of a hundred masks are even rated as partially successful (N95). Most of them are made in China.
The reason it is a scam is the same reason terrorism was a scam—- to take away your rights. Our open borders since 9-11 have let 21 million illegals in, with no idea who is a terrorist.
Joe has let in over 1 million in six months, with infected people delivered to middle America. I have beaten this dead horse enough.
Here is great news from Greece. One announcer who attended the Democrat-Nancy-School of lying said the South Koreans at the Olympics looked like slithering snakes about to eat a rat.
We also learned from another Pigleosi Lying School Graduate that not only does the Olympics have many equestrian events, but also have Camel Races.

Explanation: South is up in this detailed telescopic view across the Moon’s rugged southern highlands. Captured on July 20, the lunar landscape features the Moon’s young and old, the large craters Tycho and Clavius. About 100 million years young, Tycho is the sharp-walled 85 kilometer diameter crater near center, its 2 kilometer tall central peak in bright sunlight and dark shadow. Debris ejected during the impact that created Tycho still make it the stand out lunar crater when the Moon is near full, producing a highly visible radiating system of light streaks, bright rays that extend across much of the lunar near side. In fact, some of the material collected at the Apollo 17 landing site, about 2,000 kilometers away, likely originated from the Tycho impact. One of the oldest and largest craters on the Moon’s near side, 225 kilometer diameter Clavius is due south (above) of Tycho. Clavius crater’s own ray system resulting from its original impact event would have faded long ago. The old crater’s worn walls and smooth floor are now overlayed by smaller craters from impacts that occurred after Clavius was formed. Observations by the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) published in 2020 found water at Clavius. Of course both young Tycho and old Clavius craters are lunar locations in the science fiction epic 2001: A Space Odyssey.
