THIS IS US

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 worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and have grown old together.

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.

We are probably considered old fashioned and outdated by many.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 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 should have 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” from your college professors. You youngsters need to taste socialism and see evil face to face to understand you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, 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.’

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2016 we took back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like, but we get where we’re going, and in 2020 we’re driving to the polls again by the millions.

So the 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.”

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 still great county.

Can you feel the ground shaking??? It’s not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

Mis-Information Overload

Image result for MIS INFORMATION OVERLOAD
WRITTEN BY: BILL BOWSER

 

We are living in remarkable times. A few days ago I had lunch with one of my adult granddaughters. We spoke about the changes I’ve witnessed in my lifetime, and those she undoubtedly will see. 

The technology that is available today is amazing. The computing power built into my new iPhone probably exceeds that of all the world’s computers when I graduated college in 1965. Instant access to information on the Internet makes it possible for anyone to research any subject. It no longer takes hours of searching through numerous books in various libraries to satisfy ones curiosity. It can easily be done from your cellphone or computer in your home or almost anywhere

But, and there is always a but, how do you know that you can trust the information you find? The Internet makes it much easier to publish information than it has ever been. Unfortunately it also makes it easier to publish mis-information. This is especially true with respect to the news.

Over ten years ago I got rid of my TV because at that time I watched little more than news, and the left wing bias in the so-called mainstream media (MSM) was more than I could tolerate. Previously they had kept their liberal bias better concealed, or perhaps I just hadn’t noticed. Since that time the MSM has turned more sharply to the left. Conservatives have done similar things, but in the opposite direction, but this hasn’t corrected the problem. Today everyone posting what they call news on the Internet has an agenda. They manipulate the facts to convey or support their own view. This compounds the problem of acquiring information from people who want to conceal the facts. (Is there any doubt that the coronavirus outbreak in China is far worse than the Chinese government is willing to admit?)

I do not believe any internet news source. So much of what passes for news is nothing more than opinion or untrustworthy poll results, that it is all tainted. I am just as skeptical of the conservative sources as I am of the liberal ones. The entire news media have discarded all of their credibility. I don’t see any way for them to recover.

Georgia Gun Owners

 

The good news is that thanks to the members and supporters of Georgia Gun Owners, the Second Amendment movement is more active, mobilized, and engaged than ever before.

More than 35,000 emails (and growing) pouring into the Capitol in Atlanta in favor of Constitutional Carry.

Tens of thousands of emails in OPPOSITION to SB 150, HB 435, and SB 281, nasty gun control bills similar to those introduced and passed in Virginia … some even with Republican support.

The bad news is, we have a Governor who has done a complete 180 from the campaign trail, now refusing to provide public or private leadership on Constitutional Carry.

He’s appointed Ms. Loeffler to the U.S. Senate with the reasoning that she will pull suburban women to the Republican side, yet they are dressing her up in a fake hunting outfit with a shotgun slung over her shoulder trying to appeal to Brian Kemp’s own base.

As I write this, because of the massive pressure legislators and the Governor are getting from GGO members and supporters, they’re working on “compromise” legislation in an attempt to buy you off. 

We’re not buying it.

They think you are so ignorant that you will believe their lies about them “fighting” for your gun rights.  It’s more like fighting for their political survival. 

That’s why I’m asking you today to fire off another round of calls into Governor Kemp’s office, and also email your legislators again insisting they take action on Constitutional Carry (HB 2) and OPPOSE gun controls like SB 150 at all times.

Call Brian Kemp -> 404-656-1776

Don’t believe the person who takes your call that they cannot take your message — remember, they work for you, not the other way around.
