I am not quite there yet but i am with them.
From an e-mail:
"Some of us are older than the "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, worshiped 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, and many of us with first hand 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 theSocialistStates of America we fought for the "Land of the Freeand theHomeoftheBrave."
We wore different uniforms but carried the sameflag. 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,foreignanddomestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep.There are those who want to destroy this landwe 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 DemocraticCongress.You fell for the "Hope and Change"whichin realitywas nothing but "Hype and Lies."You have tastedsocialismand 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 aspatriotismandvoting.
Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and insteaddrank 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.
Or permanent welfare & unlimited unemploymen checks..
Well, don't worry youngsters, the
Gray Haired Brigadeis 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 theman in the White Housenor 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 "Gray-Haired Brigade."
Come on guys. Lets get this circulating.
