Grey-Haired Brigade


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 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 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 'Cool-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

or 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."

Dear Abby,

My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge
credit-card bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he
shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says he pays the minimum
and lets our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up
with the interest. Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our
neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us.

The few that do are an odd bunch, to whom he has been giving a lot of
expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also, he has gotten
religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who
say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he's with Muslims. Finally,
the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room
with him, they must sign a loyalty oath.

It's just so horribly creepy! Can you help?

Signed,
Lost
-----------------------------
Dear Lost,

Stop whining, Michelle. You're getting to live in the White House for
free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for you. You can
divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with the idiot
for another year!

Signed,
Abby

WHEN- he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State , people woke up--- but it was too late. Add these up one by one and you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph.
Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ?





Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free democratic society. Pray for Americans to seek the truth and take action for it will keep us FREE. Our biggest enemy is not China , Russia , North Korea or Iran . Our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington , DC . The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.




Question....will you delete this, or pass it on to others who don't know about Obama's actions and plans for the USA , so that they may know how to vote in November, 2012 and the ensuing years?




It's your decision. I believe it does matter. How about you?



WHEN - November 2012 comes, it will matter who you vote for!
"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you�you may know that your society is doomed." �Ayn Rand

Eh, I think this thread is about posting other people's stuff. If it is supposed to be our own "original" stuff then nobody is doing it right!

I enjoy political cartoons and photos. Doesn't matter what side of the fence one is on, they can be pretty funny.

Here's a few from both sides I think are comical.

You're right, it is. I would hope you would add you're own comments. Instead all I see is someone else's words.
