I recently discovered that I'm old because I can remember when America had a middle class. With this in mind I've decided to pass on some of my wisdom.
I've learned from Republicans that we were without a president from 2000 to 2008 at which time Obama came along to destroy our financial system.

For 20 years the man I most respected in Washington was John McCain and I couldn't wait to vote for him. Then one day I woke up and realized if he got sick a woman who was nuttier than a fruitcake would be running my country.

Rightly or not, if somebody tells me they are a banker, I put my wallet in my front pocket, and tell him I don't carry a business card.
