coknuck..exactly....i love it...where did you get that?

roco...why don't you relax and enjoy our love for our country...even if you don't feel the same for yours you could respect ours by not pissing on it...but if our patriotism bothers you that much then maybe you could just read another topic...or go into you "watched topics" and remove this one so you don't get notification of the posts...I'm an American and proud of it and I love my country and if that statement bothers anyone then whatever...i'm still gonna say it...just because this forum is world spread doesn't mean we Americans can't express our patriotism...our patriotism is what backs other countries in time of need (including the UK) this forum has a world spread YES but it's still based in the USA...sorry if that bothers anyone...just a fact...noone will hush my love for my country...and yes i still value your opinion...however you've already given it a million times...i just don't feel that this topic needs pissed on repeatedly...

muddy...i agree...and if you notice...some catastrophe always happens when our "leaders" are doing something slimy with our constitution...like during the oil spill...while everyone was freaking out about that they were changing gun laws on an international level (give me a link...i'm too tired to find it)...now mind you, i'm against guns...but i still own guns and i will not give them up or surrender them (they all have sentimental value)...and my constitution still says that i can own them...so they can change what ever international gun law they want (all the while they have us looking away) and they will not tell me i can't have them...

The 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 boomer" 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, ten 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 and 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 home of the brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangle 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 or 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 and "climbing the social ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. It appears that we care more about our grandchildren than some care about their children. 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. 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 two months 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 November we're Going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the Muslim in the White House or to 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.
