First, we must acknowledge that many men in their 70’s and even 80’s have lived healthy and disciplined lives such that (with a little luck) they still have enviable health and at least some degree of sexual potency. And many of these men have converted their years of experience into the glow of wisdom and are a joy to be around. Godspeed to them.
However, there’s also the type of “senior” who finds hateful ways to revenge his loss of health and potency on defenseless young men.
John McCain continues to refuse to reveal his medical records for pitifully obvious reasons. For openers (so far as presidential candidates go), this guy is “elderly”. Hey, facts are facts, and lots of us already see signs of dementia.
But, let's not stop with John. How about the ultimate spider in the Bush/fascist web, i.e., Dick Cheney. No offense Dick, but you really come on like a dyspeptic walrus. That crooked sneer of yours bespeaks a locally dead nervous system . . . and how much of the rest of you is walking death?
And as a matter of fact, what's the deal about how seldom you appear in public? Do they have to work on you with makeup (and plastic surgery?) for weeks before they let you out into the streets?
Same with Karl Rove. The thing is, the people who have been calling all the shots for the Republican Party are mostly very old men who less and less even appear in public!
OK, now shoot me, but I'm going to bring up (pun not intended) a very delicate subject. What happens to many old men, shall we say, in the privates department? This is simply a neutral, medical question but it may VERY IMPORTANTLY explain why America’s young men are now being thrown into garbage disposal wars by sadistic geezers.
The name of this game is called "compensation". If you're a male and you've reached that stage in your life where impotency is a present or predictable medical condition, how do you handle this?
