Re: All hope is gone
had a nice chat with an 80 yo gentleman today.served in ww2, korea. lifetime nra member. was so distraught over the place this country has become that he's given up hope. the government has basically taken his pension, his 76 yo wife had to take a job to make ends meet, and his kid's an air traffic controller making 160k a year and whining how he has to pay into social security which benefits his dad. said he was going to apply for every freebie the government is giving out, and going to ride out what time he has left on their dime. as we talked, I explained this is a setback, not a loss, and we have to keep fighting back, much as he did in two conflicts. he started to come back around, made a few choice comments on his son's future, and after giving me the old pry it from my cold dead hands speech, showed me the glock he carries in between the seats of his truck. I think we both walked away in a better frame of mind, kind of like in when in AA, they say to talk to an alcoholic a day to keep yourself sober, I'll talk to a conservative a day to keep my fires burning inside and not give up and roll over.
