Buzz: If that was really from Ben Franklin (tho it sounds more like Ben Franklin doing his impression of Mark Twain… and yes, I’ve thot about that one too), then I thank you for that. I might even have to steal it! And I don’t care if it makes the author(s) spin in their graves [if they were still alive to do so].
Why couldn’t I have received such good counsel when I was younger?*
Hog, it was great advice as a youngster, when “older” meant women in their late twenties to forties. Moreso for maturity and class than Ben’s given reasons, but I have always strongly disagreed with the false concept that women lose their beauty as they age.
Now in my mid-forties and happily married for nearly 15 years to an older woman, I’m pretty sure menopause has kicked a dent in the potential quarry.
(Although I knew a woman a few years back that hit menopause and bragged about her husband “unable to keep up” with her newly developed “appetite.”)
Old Ben was a genius, for whom this once great country owes far more gratitude and respect than he is given.
10+++++ on the poster creativity Doug. Really like them and it is something a lot of us serious patriots need to revisit, remember and REVIVE this nation on what made us what we “were”.
I was thinking that the should of this nation began to loose itself right after the late 60′s, Kennedy assassination, Vietnam, and the “Let the Sunshine “kultcha’ take over all inside the the brainwashing vehicle of the NEA and the loosing of the liberals.
Only a matter of time and what I see today IS 3 generations of all that sewer bee ess.
In my humble opinion, America has reached a point of “Too much success”. The generations that followed us reflect that. When the homeless, unemployed and youth ALL need to be on *weight control* , have wide screen TVs and drive cars—-it means they have NO idea of what real poverty is like in the rest of the world!
Electing OBoBo for a 2nd term means they are gonna find out, as will we who have worked hard our entire lives.
How WE deal with that, may in fact, bring reality back to America! I have faith in US that we will do it!!!!! AND not by no nother Revolution neither. WE are smarter than that………….
