    Good ! That makes two of us old cantankerous bastards best not fuked about with by PC STASIs or others.:D
    As I'm approaching the US "speed limit" next month in age,the great thing I've discovered is the older you get the less of a F77%K you give for peoples opinions, feelings or other butt hurt imagined or real,and have fewer qualms on calling them out on it too.:D

    For all you old guys out there.
    Why old men should fight wars

    If you are over 60 the Armed Forces thinks you are too old to track down terrorists. You can’t be older than 35 to join the military. They’ve got the whole thing bass-ackwards.

    Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn’t be able to join a military unit until you’re at least 35.

    For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

    Young guys haven’t lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. ‘My back hurts! I can’t sleep, I’m tired and hungry’. We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some butthole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

    An 18-year-old doesn’t even like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the heck. Besides, like I said, ‘We’re tired and can’t sleep and since we’re already up, we may as well be up killing some fanatical s.o.b.

    If captured, we couldn’t spill the beans because we’d forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.

    Boot camp would be easier for old guys. We’re used to getting screamed and yelled at, and we’re used to soft food. We’ve also developed an appreciation for guns. We’ve been using them for years, as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.

    They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. You’ll never see a single 20-foot wall with a rope hanging over the side in combat, nor will you ever do any pushups in a combat zone.

    Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. You’ll never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

    An 18-year-old has his whole life ahead of him. He’s still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn’t figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.

    These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm’s way.

    Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million pi$$ed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them.

    While we’re at it, how about recruiting Women over 50…in menopause! You think Old Men have attitudes! Oh my Gawd!

    If nothing else, put them on border patrol … They’ll have it secured the first night!

    Good one, enjoy.

    I'm just on the second step of the sexagenarian ladder, hopefully lots more steps to take. :D:D

    Whats the only thing that's Soldier Proof.

    A three foot length of railway track. If any shorter they would loose it and if any longer they would bend or break it.

    Happy days, better days if the ranges/clubs were open.
