Make Someone Thankful

ChickenWings_WpCCertainly, by now, you've done a charitable turn for your less fortunate neighbors to help them celebrate Thanksgiving Day.

So, this is an appeal to keep that mojo going in the days ahead - people can always use a little help and your local food banks and other volunteer organizations appreciate your donations of nutritional food and $.

The best way to show thanks is to make someone else thankful:

Beware of T-Day Hazards!

TummyTroubleTofurkey_WpCYou better watch out, you better not pout, you better not cry, we're telling you why....Thanksgiving can be damn dangerous!

Hot ovens, sharp knives, streaming pots, running children, drunks, bones and gristle, salmonella, gluttony, Dallas Cowboys football, traffic, ice and snow, family grudges, overnight shopping excursions...when else do so many hazards converge on the same day of the year?

We can only recommend that you just grip your device, calm down, and click on the "Merchandise" link. Order your Fogies 2015 Wall Calendar and other Fogies novelties to help fill your holiday stockings - that's a safe and sure bet!

Flash Mobs, the "Knockout Game", and Other Youth Pastimes

SoapboxStinksWpCKids! When will they stop playing silly games and get down to bizness?

Don't worry, we're not grinding the old anti-video game saw. And we're not talking about making the fitness curriculum more rigorous for middle school P.E. classes.

We're referring a new wave of games that bring young people together and get them out of the house. We're upset about the emergence of popular teen pastimes that build teamwork and a strong sense of shared accomplishment. Huh?

We're talking about flash mobs, spontaneous assemblages of youth who hook up via Facebook or Twitter and come together to wreak havoc and ​steal merchandise from homes and businesses. And the latest youth frivolity, "the knockout game", which brings small gangs together to roam the streets and pick out unwitting victims to receive one swift punch in the face. So much fun!

And after they play one of these new games, they often engage in that great classic: hide and seek....

Silly 21st century kids!

Marginalized

Marginalized_WpCIt’s obvious--the long arm of discrimination has now pulled older Americans into its ugly embrace.

Employment discrimination, discontinuation and reduction of beneficial programs for seniors, and restrictive actions that make it difficult for old folks to fully-participate in American cultural life are just some examples of rampant discriminatory trends.

Commentary about this insidious new form of Social Darwinism is appearing regularly in media….why the old Fogies, themselves, have been having their say about these issues for a while now.

Read more about this issue at the links below and be sure to comment at the Fogies Facebook page and website!
