It doesn’t get much plainer than this. Some of us are older than the Baby Boomers getting ready to retire. We walk a little slower and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Some refer to us as over the hill. But before writing us off, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math and science, which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were and probably used them, we remember milk and ice being delivered to our homes. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Vietnam. We can quote the Pledge of Allegiance and know where to put our hand while doing so.

We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America. We fought for the “Land of The Free and The Home of The Brave.” We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner and respect our flag. Tears run down our cheeks when we do this. We feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Remember, we have at least one good fight left in us. We love this country and nobody is going to take it from us. We took oaths to defend America from all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. And like our forefathers we will not remain silent.

We are now living under a great lie and see socialism all around us; no one wants to work, all they want is hand outs. Don’t worry youngsters the Grey Haired Brigade is here and we are going to take back our city, county, state and nation.

Fly your flag proudly and let them know how many of us there are, the press will not tell you.
