´Shut Up, Grandpa´
American Thinker, by Daren Jonescu

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/26/2012 7:02:58 AM

Collectivists of the Washington establishment, representing both major parties, have analyzed the 2012 election results and come to a lovely conclusion: old white men are the problem. The only difference of opinion between the two factions regards how one ought to handle it. (snip) Republican experts, as the reluctant stewards of these cantankerous fogies, are more circumspect: they merely want to leave Grandpa ranting in the corner with his talk radio shows

Neither of my sons - grown men in 30´s and 40´s - get it. They roll their eyes when I try to tell them what´s going wrong. The younger one especially sighs and tunes me out. So - I say nothing now. They don´t even understand what they´ve lost.

I lived during a wonderful time in this country - thanks to men like my dad and uncles who went to war, came home, built homes and families. Those days are long gone. One day these young ones and illegal aliens who think they are finally getting a piece of the American pie will understand just what they have allowed to happen.

Sad but true, and these 2 generations don´t even know that they don´t know much. Over the past several years, we have watched business entrepreneurs pass the family-built organization into the hands of their spoiled children .... only to see the fruits of their years-long labor crumble, while Sonny Boy ´played the role´ of Mr. Important.
.... A famous national pharmacy business was saved only because the Board of Directors took it away from Sonny and fired the remaining in-house incompetents. A Pennsylvania department store chain was saved when the namesake business builder came out of retirement to rescue his stores from the incapable nephew who didn´t get it.

They need Grampa more than ever, and I wonder which smart business owners are going to rehire the ´old guys´ who actually understand what it takes to keep the doors open.

This Grandpa is feed up with a left that used Principles like inclusion and diversity right up to the time they thought they have the upper hand to suddenly become the Racist themselves. This Grandpa did not spend thirty years in the military to stand down from a fight now. Intercity gang bangers and little girls who demand I pay for their contraceptives do not make a practical fighting force and as T. Jefferson said "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure." I Ready bring it on.

Until we teach our children the sacrifices made to keep this country free, they will never get it.

Have your kids and grandchildren read "The Fighting Hawks at D-Day" available on Amazon.com. It´s written so they will understand why they are free and the sacrifices made to keep them that way.

As a member of the newest American minority, I can testify to the decades-long erosion of the bonds that once fostered and protected our traditional understandings of both virtue and responsibility. Churches bowed to secularism; local business associations were replaced by professional community organizers; teachers, once professionals, unionized and became tradesmen. And, along the way, we´ve been confronted with the reality and consequences of the pill; new and improved STDs; less emphasis on the three R´s and more on protecting our children´s feelings; popular music that is not only duller, but more aggressive and vile; a media that claims to have moved from being a trade to being a profession; and a growing number of families in which no one has had gainful employment for several generations.

What can I do about all of this? Well, I´m not sure because, not only is the whole new progressive world dead set against me, so, too, are the numbers for my breed. whose demographic replacement value has been well under 2.1 for quite a while, now. So, my current less-than-brave inclination is to sit back in a comfy lounger, light up another cancer stick, keep the ice covered with a nice single-malt and tune into MSNBC so I can watch the on-going celebration of my (and my country´s) imminent demise. Cheers.

Some around here need to remember that "life goes on....long after the thrill of living is gone." Don´t ever give up. That´s what O´fool wants us to do; give up and die. There are many opportunities in business with today´s technologies and today´s foolish youth unwilling and therefore unable to produce. Continue to fight the statists with your wallet, brain, and feet. Spend wisely and with fellow conservatives. Use your brain and start your own business. Use your feet if you have to, pick up and move to more business friendly climes. And don´t tell me how hard it is to start a business - I started mine up last August after an extended period of time unemployed and doing part time manual labor...and I´m in my 50s. If you are on this site you know how to use a computer. Google computer related stuff, study it, and figure out how to earn a living from home. Do not count on savings and investments. All of us need to be able to produce to survive. Besides, there is almost no better way to anger Obama than to be a success in spite of his efforts to keep us down. Sorry about the rant, but perfectly capable people giving up burns me up.

Blame Granpa at your peril!

The older I got, the smarter my dad and Grandpa became. These young skulls who know everything are going to have a time of it after I´m gone off this mortal coil.

The Great Depression provided a great deal of moral courage which these young ones have not lived through.... The very notion that someone should work to provide for those who won´t work is foreign to Granpa.

So blares a poster on exhibit at the taxpayer-funded University of Michigan. So far, I have been able to find no protests from the ACLU or other groups that decry religious expression at venues that belong to governmental authorities. The poster is the work of Heather Ault, and is part of a campaign called “4000 years of choice.” Ms. Ault sounds like real charmer and came to her views through a bitter experience:

“Your father’s coming to see you,” Ann Dunham told her ten-year-old son Barack Obama, Jr. before a month-long Obama Sr. Christmas visit in 1971, as narrated in Dreams from My Father. Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit, reportedly part of a "recuperation" after a "bad car accident" in Kenya, included "drives" around "the island," "short walks past" "the remodeled hospital where [Barack Jr.] had been born," and "a talk" to Barack Jr.´s fifth-grade class about "wild animals" that "roamed the plains" of Kenya. And, most importantly, Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit gave credence that Obama Sr. was, in fact, Barack Jr.´s father. But was

Battleground Polls and Conservative Strength

The latest Battleground Poll, compared with prior Battleground Polls, shows the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as “conservative” dropping. The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population. Blacks are 13% of the Battleground sample, a smidgen more that the black percentage of the population. As I noted a few years

There is a mountain of media out there promoting a phony philosophy about the joys of recreational sex – casual, risky sexual encounters that do not involve commitment. One need look no farther than the junk advice featured in magazines like Cosmopolitan to see just how pernicious and pervasive recreational sex is. The time for some straight talk about this sexual trend is long overdue. Every young person needs to know the following three truths: Truth #1: Recreational sex has produced dramatic increases in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Obama´s Rose Garden

The April Fool’s Day show put on in the Rose Garden yesterday was no triumph, but rather an act of desperation, touting “enrollment” numbers generated without any transparency, intended to arrest the downward spiral of Obamacare and the Democratic Party’s electoral prospects. Obama himself gave away the game unintentionally, in what poker players call a “tell” that consisted of two parts. The first part of the tell was the obvious outright lie told by the president in a “poor me” moment of self-pity. From the official transcript: And we didn’t make a hard sell. We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials

The standard MSM trope is that the GOP is riven by conflict, but even they are beginning to notice Democrats turning against one another. There is going to be hell to pay for the Democrats in November. Having rammed through a disastrous transformation of health care, a lot of congressional Democrats and many more down the ticket suspect that voters will vent their anger at the party that foisted the travesty on us. As the old saying goes, “Success has a thousand fathers and failure is an orphan.” So Democrats are scrambling to make sure that their backs are protected when

Conservative critics of government are “freaks,” are “in for a pretty rough ride,” and “will need their Kevlar,” i.e., bullet-proof vests. These statements didn’t come from the Obama administration or some radical leftwing organization. They are Facebook posts of a Republican elected official in Virginia’s Fauquier County. Fauquier drew national attention in 2012 for charging farmer Martha Boneta with violating the law by having a birthday party for eight little girls without a permit and zoning site plan. The highly charged posts of county supervisor Holder Trumbo came shortly after two recent events, and are emblematic of the civil war taking place within

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
