Lifelong Republican with a very dim view on socialism. He often said Woody Guthrie was a troublemaking hobo.

During World War II his thoughts on Roosevelt were that we should fight him before we fought Hitler.


He kept a picture of Joseph McCarthy above his bed.

When he reflected on the 60s his most uttered phrase was.

“ goddamn hippies” !

Nixon did what he had to do.

On Jimmy Carter he explained that if you fail at farming grow peanuts. Any idiot can grow peanuts.

I think the Reagan years were the best years of his life.

Now I just found out he’s switching sides.

He will be voting Democrat in November!!!!!

This never would’ve happened if he was still alive!

Funny but it would be even funnier if it wasn’t true.

I’ve always thought most humor is based in pain .

It’s a defensive reaction you laugh because it hurts .

There was a quote that stuck in my head I forget who said it .

“ You can’t tell a joke without offending someone “

No offense...but have you checked his meds lately?

Grandpa's should never let you down, they been around the block a few times and if their taking a stand on something you can be sure a lifetime of experiences has dictated that stance and it will likely be the correct stance.

Except Grandpa's not taking any "stance" in this story. He's laying down in a box six feet under and still voting. Really you should read it again.

Any idiot can grow peanuts.


It's true!
I throw two peanut plants in a container full of terrible soil that is mostly clay and they have both grown huge.
I don't even water them. I let the rain do it. I dug in the soil yesterday and found tons of nice looking peanuts growing.
Time to harvest soon.

I’m a little trouble with my stance on Woody Guthrie .

I understand the political implications behind “this land is your land “.

But you’ve got to admit it’s a damn fine song .

I guess it’s my inclination to give music a pass when it comes to politics .

Goes to show you just how weaponized and dangerous the television (idiot box) is.

I guess you’re right.

I always thought he would die before he voted for a Democrat .

Apparently that stance has been forced .

He's probably turning over in his grave to know he's a Democrat now.
