Jun 6th 2011 2:57PM When I attended high school a million years ago, most of our teachers were WW II veterans who went to college on a G.I. Bill.
Unruly students were not about to confront these men because they would punch them. And if a woman teacher was verbally abused, they'd suggest to the bigger seniors to talk to the person after school. If the mouthy one got injured, so be it. Arguements with each other were settled by a teacher providing both a pair of boxing gloves at the gym. Both had to shake hands after one quit. Oh - - and guess what else? We had "rifle" practice in the school gym after school. And you probably guessed this. A vet was our instructor. Different times, perhaps better. Today too many parents suffer from what I call: "The Not My Child Syndrome!" Take care, Geezer Dave.
Feb 24th 2011 4:33PM The Obama administration is going to focus on additional Social Security and Medicare fees from the elderly, but what our leaders should be taking to task, is the greedy pill manufacturers. Health care costs are litterally killing America, and no one is going after the real gougers. Young folks should stand up, they will get old very soon too!
Feb 21st 2011 12:13PM You forgot Vicksing up from head to toe, drinking a bottle of five dollar wine with three female street walkers then spending several hours in an over heated sauna.

Sep 4th 2010 1:15AM I'm a card carrying old geezer. I have 2 water systems, 2 electric systems, 3 heating systems, stored seeds, stored food and plenty of MRE's. I also have plenty of fire power and mucho ammo, plus gas masks for all. Also lots of good farming equipment and hand tools. For me? Nope. For all of my 14 member family to come and hunker down whenever needed. I can feed 'em for a year or more, then we have to hit the back 40 and plant food. My wife can make clothing, can foods, make candles and cook well over an outdoor fire box. We can also pray.
Aug 19th 2010 9:45AM Right on! "We will send them packing!" The only problem is that to get elected to go to Washington, a candidate must spend millions of dollars for TV ads, travel, etc. It also means that the elected oficial must repay those who helped him get elected.
Corruption is so intrenched in both political parties, that from a voters point of view, their choice is either Hemorrids or Athletes Feet.
Apr 12th 2010 12:12AM I'm a 73 year old white guy. My hair has been a family topic for about 15 years. The reason? Although the hairline is slipping a little on both sides, the hair itself remains dark brown. My wife and even my eldest daughter complain about using dyes. I don't know if it's due to heridity or the daily brushing since my marine corp days. My guess is that it's a circulation thing for all men. I also use a turkish towel to rub my face, neck and closed eyes for 5 minutes per day. The result is very few facial lines - - yet. Go figure. :)
Dec 13th 2008 3:16PM Old time boxing fans know that Pavlik and his group bet a lot of money on Hopkins, then took a dive. It reminded me of the Duran vs. Leonard fight. When Duran couldn't fake the fight, he simply quit. "No Mas! No Mas!" Pavlik opted for the ass kicking.
I'll aslo bet that Pavlik won't be fighting at Atlantic City any time soon.
Dec 2nd 2008 12:10AM I am a card carrying 'old Geezer.' I don't care what color CNN uses as moderators, as long they face the cameras so I can lip read some, and the 'captions' are close to real, english, words. PS- "A Geezer is a grizzled old man in bib overalls that can walk a barbed wire fence barefoot with a pair of wildcats under each arm while searching for a nest of rattlesnakes to pester!"
May 30th 2008 1:49AM I have a tattoo I got while in the Marines. It is in a very private part of the male body that makes me a man. While working, etc. etc. and in a non aroused state of mind, it simply says "Shortie's". However in the privacy of my own or a female's bedroom, it then reads: "Shortie's Bar and Grill Chattanoga, Tennesee!" Take care & Semper Fi - - -
