THIS IS DANGEROUS - cognitive decline happens to nearly everyone by the late 70's, certainly by age 80. Yet this crowd is ruling the US. Why? They
have accumulated the "scary Godfather" "Don" "Crime syndicate leader" type of power. They know where all the secrets are hidden and aren't afraid to
use them to control people around them. They have enough clout to destroy those who they simply don't like or who disagree with them, and they do
I was unable to get a good list of current world leaders by age. Suffice it to say there are at least 10 in their 90's, and more than 10 in their
80's. I suppose world leaders aren't anxious to let people know their advanced geriatric age. They try to hide it with massive plastic surgery like
Pelosi and Putin that leave them looking like plastic dolls rather than real people.
I used to teach Human Development in Univ, retired now.
I can tell you that this is extremely dangerous to society. Especially men getting up to that age. Men die earlier than women and men reach the
inevitable mental decline earlier than women. Pelosi is obviously in decline, as is Kay Ivey (R) Gov. You can see it in their "off script" press
conferences where they get mixed up quite easily.
Pelosi's mental slips are quite public and numerous. Ivey had a press conference yesterday where she stood aside looking confused while younger men
ran to the podium to answer questions. This is becoming all to common with far far too many of our elected politicians. We desperately need
legislation forbidding anyone who will turn 80 during their elected term from running for office. But this won't happen because the over 80's we have
voted in to run the country and fooled into thinking they were still cognitively healthy. Shame on us, would you want your 80+ year old Grandma or
Grandfather to run the country? That is exactly who you voted to run the country if you voted for anyone whose term will take them into their
Why are we such a bunch of fools to keep electing people, of all parties, who are in mental decline? Why are we electing people who should be in
assisted living to run the nation? Why aren't we trying to kick them out?
The world seems to have a death wish with these doddering old fools being elected to run the nation.
