Alan Simpson, co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission is an old man. 80-years old to be exact. Yesterday while attempting to drum up attention for this whole "lil deficit problem" he launched into a rant that was directed more at young people than it was at the senior citizens that are crying about social security cuts. Directed at seniors: "This is fakery. If they care at all about their children or grandchildren, and sometimes I doubt that -- I think you know, grandchildren now don't write a thank-you for the Christmas presents, they're walking on their pants with the cap on backwards listening to the enema man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg, and they don't like them!" Sounds like a certain 80-year old former senator has some unresolved family issues. I'm of the belief that old folks are shuttled off to the retirement home and out of sight far too frequently. They have life experience that is extremely valuable and have often lived through hardship we can only have nightmares about. 99 times out of 100 I'm respectful of old folks regardless of what they're saying. When I heard Alan Simpson's comments all I could think was shut the fuck up old man. Focus: When have you told an old person to shut the fuck up?
