Last I checked this was about the elderly not me.
The opening post was by a disgruntled Scotsman. He has since indicated disappointment in HIS decision to move to the US. Instead of moving back to Scotland, he wants to blame "old farts" in the United States for his misery. Though I feel he is only "pissed" over the "weed" laws in the US, he proposed the following:
- and where does it say ANYTHING about "weed" laws? Your generation set the market for Pharmaceuticals which are nothing more then snake oil salesmen. Now you guys want to bitch and complain about how bad you get treated when your the ones who let get this far. You can't blame that on us. You guys were here first and could of stopped this a long time ago. Now you sit around all day on forums bitching... What I have to look forward too... Geez...
"anyone over 50 just needs to step back and let the people who have a firm grasp of technology and how the world works do the thinking and voting."
I didn't see the word "elderly" mentioned anywhere in his post. I did however see references to "The over 50's", "grumpy old farts", and the "out of touch". As his post specifically mentions two of my favorite peer groups, it entitles me to demonstrate that I may not be as "out of touch" as idiots like yourself, and the OP, may believe (I originally used the word "think", but it doesn't seem to apply to you two.).
BTW old timer it's too not two and 50 is elderly... He may of used different terms but I was attempting to be respectful, but calling me an idiot is only your opinion and not fact so I just at you. You might want to fix your glasses TOO because the heading was Ban the over 50's (old farts/elderly) not here is why I blame you old farts and want to move back...
You are a member of the "out of touch" group, so yes, the opening post is about you too. I certainly don't feel you "have a firm grasp of technology and how the world works". Your lack of writing skills, and lack of focus, demonstrate my point very well.
Lack of writing skills? Lack of focus? Please explain old timer...
I know I have a grasp of how things work in the big world and on the streets. You old man are the one who is out of touch, not me. I have nothing to prove to you or anyone else, even though it is judgement day... or was that this weekend. I forget. Must be my Alzheimer... or pot smoke .
Either way it has no bearing in my beliefs and opinions.
Then, why the hell did you even express an opinion? After all, it was you that decided "It really doesn't matter". Don't try to lay that in my lap!
Um... because it doesn't have any bearing on my beliefs or opinions... Last I checked I was a human being that has the right to make comments and statements as I wish. Didn't they teach that to you in school? If you can remember that long ago... and I wasn't the one who decided it didn't matter... you can blame that one on the government. Most "smart" people ( I use that term loosely because it doesn't seem to include you) know the only reason we have a Democratic and Republican party is so the people will be fooled into believing they have a choice. Only the blind follow foolishly.
And maybe your 6th grader knows how to have kids, but that doesn't mean they know how to raise them!
Very good! I am VERY impressed! That is exactly the point I was trying to make when I stated:
"Maybe it would be a better idea to save "Sex Ed" for those getting ready to graduate from high school."
That just shows how much of an idiotic statement that was... Oh yeah just wait and teach them about it after the fact... "Now Suzy I know you have 3 kids in the 10th grade and it's a bit late, but we want you to take Sex Education class." VERY smart of you... Another reason why you shouldn't vote. Just making the OP sound more realistic... Amazing how he got sooooo many stars too. Notice how I used too and not two there big guy?
and why can't a 16 yr old see?
Are you for real? Quite often it's the same damn reasons a 50 year old might not be able to see! Do some damn research for a change!
I spend a good deal of time researching my beliefs so your comment isn't warranted... as usual... Statically most 16 yr olds CAN see... Where do you come up with these thoughts
Are you retarded?
Perhaps... What do you think? (As if I really give a damn!) Please use valid references though.
Can you say Stu-Pi-D-Ty without crappin in your Depends? Too bad there isn't a cure for that yet. Maybe you should vote for one though?
You my friend are the sheeple. Not me.
Hey..., I can be that mature (?) too...

I think you're partly right. We should leave the voting to people that are never grumpy.
