When I Turned FIFTY, it seemed to me to be a Really Big Number. I Wasn’t even Sure if I would Make-It-To SIXTY. Then I Turned SIXTY, and figured Maybe it’s Time to Sell the Farm, Sell the Motorcycle, Stop Riding Horses and Pack-It-In with the Hay Making Shtick.
And Now . . . Today – February 12, 2020 – Here I Am At SEVENTY.
We Sold the Farm, Boarded-Out the Horses, I Don’t Make Hay any Longer, We Bought a Few RV’s, Built a Spring/Summer/Autumn Private RV Park for Ourselves on Land we Rent – I Kept The Motorcycle . . . And This Is The Sixth Year We’ve Spent 6-Months In The Warm Winter Sun In Texas.
And I Get To Write This Blog Almost Every Day With An Occasional Podcast . . . Tell Me If This Isn’t Being Blessed?
This Is A Simple Message For All People Of My New Age & Older . . . We’re as Good as we Think we Are & Want to Be. And in Spite of the Aches, Pains, Arthritic Fits & Starts in the Morning & some Memory Lapses . . . We Have Plenty Of Living Ahead Of Us Until We Believe We Don’t . . . AND WE MATTER.
We Older Folk Have Paid our Dues. We Created what the LEFT wants to Tear Down, and have EARNED our Opinions Far More than the Opinions of the Jerks who think they’re so Much Smarter than Us.
DON’T FORGET . . . It is Us who Have Given To Them. And it is Them Who Want to Take From Us.
So Please Help Me Celebrate My SEVENTIETH Birthday By Feeling As Important As You Should – No Matter How Much Over The Age Of SIXTY-FIVE You May Be.
Remember – Everything We Built . . . We Don’t Have To Let Them Destroy.
I’m Watching With Confused Interest, how the LEFT are Trying to Pick a Party-Leader from A Gaggle Of Losers, who are Focused on Selling to the People Who & What They Are Not, while Hiding Who & What They Really Are . . . Which Includes those Who’ve Lied, Cheated & Deceived to Get as Far as They’ve Gotten, while all of them (Less The Few Billionaires) have been Feeding Heartily from the Public Trough.
The Most Interesting Of The LEFTIST Mob . . . are the Media, which is 100% Behind any Democrat who Could Best Scum-Out President Trump, by Inventing Untruths & Half Truths about the Man in the White House, who has Actually Made America Great Again In-Spite of all the Obstacles the Insiders Threw President Trump’s Way.
What Is Most Confusing To Me . . . is how the Democrats who are Running for the Leadership of their Party – Have Just One Single Plank In his or her Platform, which is Common to all of them with the Most Important Thing Above all Else . . . “Beating Trump”.
You Would Think . . . that More Important Than just “Beating Trump” Would-Be & Should-Be Making America an even Better Place Tomorrow than it is Today . . . But That’s Not It At All . . . It’s All About “Beating Trump”, and which of the Sad-Sack Democrats has the Best Plan to “Beat Trump”.
For the Few Front Runners with a Vision for America After their Sick Ambition of “Beating Trump” . . . its all About Creating a One World Communist Society, where the Politicians, Bureaucrats, Entertainers, Public Sector Workers, Unions, Ultra Rich & Powerful, will Create their own Shangri-La on the Backs of the Real Working Class, before the Jobs & Opportunities Disappear With The Makers Who Will Much Sooner Rather Than Later Stop Making.
I’m Old Enough to have Seen for Myself what Socialism Brings – AKA Communism, where Societies are Managed from Start to Finish by the Government . . . where the Proletariat is Hoodwinked into Believing that the Government can Cure all Social Ills, when in Fact – The Government Becomes The Major Social Ill That Needs Curing.
It’s Great for the LEFT to Sell the Lie that there will be A Chicken In Every Pot & A Car In Every Garage, that there will be Free Healthcare for all, Because I know Better, Because I Live in a Society (Canada) where Healthcare is Free For All Unless you’re Dying & Willing to Wait Seemingly Forever to See A Doctor at a Hospital Emergency Center . . . But Don’t Hold Your Breath.
Free Education. Free Tuition. Forgiven Student Loans . . . Bull-Shit – Nothing’s Free – Someone’s Always Got To Pay.
Stop Fracking. Kill The Oil & Gas Industry. No More Petroleum-Powered Cars Or Trucks. What about Pleasure Boats? Privately & Corporately Owned Airplanes. Would we still be Allowed to Buy Meat? And Could we Buy Fish from the Ocean? What about Dairy & Cash Crop Products for which the Farmers Need lots of Diesel-Fuel for their Tractors, Discs, Plows, Rollers, Seeders, Cutters, Conditioners, Tedders, Rakes, Balers, Combines, Flatbeds, Hoppers, Dryers . . . And Much More?
All The Left Is Selling Is Lunacy On Steroids . . . Where they have Become so Adept & Compulsive at Lying, that they Lie with Pathological Conviction – Enough-So, as to Convince the Ignorant Public that their Lies Are Truths. Where in Fact, the LEFT & their Complicit Media Allies are Leading the Population Down the Path to Armageddon.
THE NAZIS SAID IT BEST . . . Make The Lie Big Enough – Tell It Often Enough & The Lie Becomes The Truth.
Thank God for Older People, Who Have Seen-It, Lived-It & Know Enough Not to Buy-Into the Lie . . . And To Call It For What It Is.
Age Does Have Its Benefits.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
