Cuz Europe was in worse shape.

WWII - have you heard of it? The aftermath was horrible for many people.

(And FDR was not President in 1950 - can't you even remember that?)

I totally agree. Very well stated.

"Yes, we'd like to see the most expensive ring you have."

"Yes, SIR." The jewelry store owner brings out a huge diamond rock. "This ring is valued at $74,000.00."

"It's bupkis. I said we wanted to see your most expensive ring. Show it to us, please."

The jewelry store guy goes into the back and opens the safe. "All right, sir. We normally do not even show this ring without armed guards present. This ring is valued at $850,000.00."

"We'll take it," says the old guy.

The girl's eyes are like saucers.

"Very WELL, sir," says JSG. "How do you plan to pay for it?"

"I'm going to write you out a check for the full amount and hand you the check now. You may call my bank tomorrow morning and verify that the check is good. When you have done so, please call me on Monday, and we will be in to pick up the ring."

Next Monday morning, the old guy's phone rings. It's the jeweler. "Sir, there isn't any money in that account."

"I know," says the old guy. "But let me tell you about my weekend . . . "

Moral: Not every old person is senile.

If he/she is lucky.

Remember there is only one way to avoid getting old.

Golly, I must have missed that quote in the linked article. And BTW - a restaurant/culinary site is now authority for political quotations?

Oh, wait a minute - I found it. It isn't in the article itself but, rather, appears over the name of "Bill," who ascribes the quote to Gov. Lamm (no link, of course) in his reply to the article - along with ten other folks who also replied.

I get it now. No problem.

If the congress passed a bill about the links of articles we could use, but didn't inlude restaurant.culinary sites, then we could have a constitutional question regarding the Executive Branch's power to enforce laws that we then might be able to follow. But then, if it was a Judicial Question, how would we answer it? We could only depend on other constitutional articles that had been passed in the distant past when it was not a question.

I never bother to watch that YouTube bullshit posted by twerps. But I can answer your question as to why we listen to old people. It's because our society isn't as "complex" and "modern" as asshat adolescents want to believe it is, and old people understand something deeper and more meaningful: human nature. That never changes.
