The Founding (Grand)Fathers

Taxation_WpCThe old boys of 1776 saw what was happening then.

The old boys of 2016 see what's happening now.

And we don't give a damn about time or tense agreement when we're getting our point across.

Situational Ethics

EthicsTest_WpCJust think about all those times you slipped a few bucks into a card and handed it over to your niece or nephew just because of your relationship, just because it was a holiday, or some other special occasion. They pocketed that green faster than you could say, "Don't spend it all in one place!".

Well, sometimes the worm turns and old Uncle Fogey can use a few bucks of his own.

But we're willing to do a little work for it, unlike those little leeches. It's called the "entrepreneurial spirit".

Hey, we can be as modern as anyone else in the new millennium!

Ho-Ho-Hum

XmasSpiritWebCIn "A Christmas Carol", old Scrooge was a mean-spirited miser. He had money, but didn't want to share it.

Nowadays, old fogies with limited funds play the Scrooge because they can't afford to buy gifts or have holiday feasts. Some have trouble keeping the heat on.

It's enough to scare the Dickens out of you.
