Message to Pols and Obama: You're scaring the elderly VERY badly
On the spot interviews | 11 January 2013 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

Posted on 01/11/2013 7:26:56 PM PST by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

Here's a message for the politicians and Obama, you're scaring the elderly very badly. You're scaring the very people who fear God, worked hard all of their lives, built this nation and some who fought for this nation.

When asked, "Have you ever seen this type of situation regarding politics before, 80s aged elderly say resoundingly, "No!". This evening during one of these impromptu interviews, as I was asking the elderly gentleman (86 years old) if he had seen this kind of political tension, his wife leaned toward me and said in a whisper, "We're scared!" He answered, "No." and then said, "This guy hasn't done anywhere near what he wants to do yet."

I haven't been so concerned about the rhetoric on guns knowing that from both sides, a lot of it is manipulation. However, when you start scaring my mom and the grandmothers and grandfathers of this nation who have done nothing but try to live correctly and work hard, you've crossed the line. How dare you? For what reason? To gain political power? Those spearheading this are evil beyond description and are going to answer to God. Mark my words, they WILL answer to God for what they're doing even though they don't think they will.

I think a lot of the Boomers and older did vote for this. They were deceived by the promise of ObamaCare.

In hard times, the elderly tend not to do well. In times such as major catastrophes, not well at all. I’m getting close to elderly (hitting 60 this year.)

No. About half the Boomers might have but the rest of us are Patriots. The others are Liberals..it’s just like the ‘60’s again. Half protest and do drugs. The other half go to Viet Nam and fight.

"Most old folks just voted for Obama."

Sadly, the majority of cars I see with Ø / Plugs stickers on them, driven by whites, are the elderly...

My friends and I are all close to ninety and none of us voted for this usurper. Where did you get that idea?

No way...if we are able to read and remember, we know that it can only be bad for healthcare, investments and cost of living.

I only know a few lifelong Dems who continue to vote that way. They will not discuss why or even talk about it.

Not to worry.
To many here at FR, we're just a bunch of takers and useless eaters.

No. They didn't.

In the nine battleground states that decided the election where extensive exit polling was done on November 6th, 0bama lost the oldest demographic (65 and over) by the largest margin: by a whopping 18 points. He also lost the 45-64 demographic by a hefty 9 points.

The national numbers aren't as complete because exit polling isn't done to nearly the same extent in "safe" states, but they show similar results.

Incidentally, he also lost among Whites by an enormous 22 points, and he lost married females.

This election was entirely about dependency: poor minorities, middle class blacks overwhelmingly employed by the government, and single females. Even among young whites (18-24), 0bama did not perform significantly better in this election than past Democrats.

Please don't believe that driving past some idiot blue hair is evidence that old people voted for 0bama.

They didn't.

Oh, and just one more thing for people who’re guided by their prejudices rather than statistics or science: Romney had one of the best Republican showings in recent years among Black males. This is a group that doesn’t vote in nearly the same percentages as Black females, but among those who did, Romney got almost 30%, compared with nearly 0% from Black women.

Well, that just goes to show you that anecdotal evidence is worthless.

See my previous post. And have a look, among many other places, here: http://www.statisticbrain.com/2012-presidential-voter-support-by-demographic/

No, they weren't.

The older you were, the less likely you were to vote for 0bama. http://www.statisticbrain.com/2012-presidential-voter-support-by-demographic/

2012 results: voters 65 and older voted 56% for Romney. Stupid snotsuckers like you elected Obama. Please kindly consider blowing your own shit away before defiling the website again. We need your carbon footprint to pay for toilet paper.

When you are old, remember you said this for that is what others will say about you then. In other words, they will assume becayse you are old, you have no sense. You are pitifully wrong.

iowamark is an idiot and any that think like he does are the same. The elderly in Texas would line him up against a fence and take target practice.

They don’t care about the old! The young are their future, and just look at are current young, how promising for them.

True. I haven't seen very many 0 stickers (here in TX), but the few I've seen just happened to be older and white drivers. At least one was on a Prius. Probably a much different demographic in Austin :)

My mom is 95 and only just this year starting to think of herself as elderly. I'm about your age, still riding dirt bikes and stuff. I have plenty of problems but try to stay involved as much as possible with youthful pursuits (except chasing girls lol).

Not ‘this one’! i smelled him a-comin’, BEFORE the FIRST election!

I am a Senior citizen. I AM a veteran. If I were to receive ‘the word’, stand on the line, and move when “Dress Right!” is given, it is because it is worth NOT my 60-ish years, but all the years of the little first grader, who adopted me as their ‘pawpaw’.

I’ve defended a different America, then what it has become today. It makes me so furious. The national intelligence quotient AIN’T D’ERE NO MO’!

My dad is 82. He’s one of the most patriotic people you’ll ever meet. He flies Old Glory 24/7/365 in front of his house, and served his country in the U.S. Army for 27 years, retiring as a highly decorated LTC.

But — he was absorbed by the liberal Borg decades ago, and now spouts liberal talking points right on cue, on any subject you care to mention.

Yes, he voted for Obama twice, and yes, he thinks that “assault weapons” should be banned.

What are you gonna do? It makes me crazy.

It’s an honor to be in the presence of all you cantankerous ol’ curmudgeons.

Heck, there would be no meaningful Tea Party activism if it weren’t for the seasoned patriots.

Well I am a boomer. There was nowhere near half of us doing drugs. That crap was mostly on the east and west coast and the liberal colleges/universities.

Then it started spreading to the rest of the country. My town and the surrounding towns wanted nothing to do with liberals, drugs, and hippies.

Just like the bad ideas of today East, West coasts, DC, and liberal bastions spread their crappy ideas like a pandemic.

WRT assault weapons: you can ask (1) if the government is always correct [citing Dread Scott], (2) and if not, then what the people have as a method of correction (again, cite Dread Scott).

In the nine battleground states that decided the election ...

If Obama does a gun grab or bypasses Congress on the debt ceiling, the term "Battleground" states will likely take on a new meaning.

My parents are in their early 80s. The last demoncrap they voted for was Kennedy.

They both expressed the fear that since they are over 70, Obamacare will make sure that they get bypassed when they need medical care.

I have a friend who is a physician and I asked him if that was true and he said, "Yep, by design."

I would venture to say that The BFLAN is also scaring old people - by design.

You know, a fearful populace is a much more compliant populace.

The ONLY reason obama won was by fraud. What gets is that romney slunk off, into the night, without so much as a word about the fraud and the destruction of our electoral process. That is a betrayal I won’t forget, especially the next time the GOP asks for a dime.
