When Is “Old” Too Old?


Let add Claire McCaskill to the list of too old. Too old and too liberal……..

The Lone Cactus

We’ve all heard that 80 is the new 60, right? I mean, nobody wants to criticize people for being “too old” to do something. In fact, in employment situations anymore, you can’t. It’s illegal and will get an ageism suit brought against you faster than you can say Methuselah.

But it does raise a question when it comes to our elected officials. When is “old” too old to serve?

Nancy Pelosi got asked that question at a town hall meeting the other day. She took it personally. She should. Nancy has long been rumored to have some severe mental issues dealing basically with dementia. She stammers, stutters, mis-uses words, stares blankly into the audience, and at times just seems out of it. And at the ripe old age of 78, is going to be running for reelection this year in San Francisco. She’s not alone.

  1. THIS ONE IS A BALL OF WAX ALRIGHT. ONE THING WE DO KNOW TO BE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, IS THAT EACH GENERATION LEFT BEHIND SOME KIND OF TREMENDOUS MESS. WHILE EACH GENERATION TRIES TO CORRECT THE MESS OF A PREVIOUS GENERATION, THEY ARE CREATING A BRAND NEW MESS THEMSELVES. I SHALL BE TURNING 65 NEXT MONTH, SHOULD I LIVE THAT ALONG, AND THE WAY I SEE IT, IS THAT WE HAVE FREAKS IN ALL AGE GROUPS. AS FAR AS ELECTED OFFICIALS A LITTLE OVER 90% IN ALL AGE RANGES, MAKE A DISASTER OUT OF OUR LIVES. ONLY ABOUT 5% IF THAT MUCH KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE DOING, AND NOT CREATING WICKED AND EVIL CONSPIRACIES TO OUT RIGHT KILL US. IT REALLY BOILS DOWN TO THE MINDSET AND NOT A NUMBER. WE MUST AT ALL COST RECOGNIZE, THAT IT WAS A COMPARATIVE YOUNG MAN, WHO WANTED TO DISMANTLE ANYONE AT THE AGE OF 50 AND ABOVE, AND WHO BELIEVES THAT IF YOU DO REACH YOUR 75TH BIRTHDAY, THAT YOU SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH, AND THAT WAS NONE OTHER THAN “BELOVED” OBAMA. HE IS THE ONE THAT OFFICIALLY STARTED THE WAR BETWEEN THE YOUNG AND THE OLD, WE GENERALLY DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH SUCH MAGNITUDE. WE NOW HAVE MORE EMPHASIS ON AGE, AND DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT, THAN WE HAVE EVER IN PRIOR TIMES. ONE THING I OFTEN TELL YOUNG PEOPLE, DO NOT RESPECT ME, BECAUSE OF MY AGE, TAKE A LOOK AT MY MIND, MY THOUGHTS, MY HEART, AND MY ACTIONS, AND BASE YOUR RESPECT ON THOSE PREFERENCES. SHOULD A YOUNG PERSON LOOK UP TO SOME ONE LIKE SOROS, BILL GATES, AND WARREN BUFFET, ETC…—HELL NO. SHOULD WE AS OLDER PEOPLE LOOK TO GIVE RESPECT TO LADY GAGA, ELON MUSK, AND JAY Z, ETC…—HELL NO. FREAKS OF ALL AGES, OH MY YES!!!
