God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Either our youth are in trouble or I'm a stinking superman

Back in March after having my knee replaced our old TV set died. Although we don't watch any current shows, the thing got used for DVD's and internet movies (our kids love Netflix).

Anyway, the wife shopped around and ordered a replacement. Before it came in we needed the old one moved to our garage. While she was asleep I picked the sucker up and did it. Still catching hell from her on that one, I don't know if she's pissed because I carried that set so soon after my surgery or because there were no problems with doing it. Go figure.

Today I took the thing to Best Buy for recycling. The nice young man, easily less than half my age (60) accepts it from me, places a sticker on the thing and then asks a coworker for help to move it five yards.

So a fat retired sub sailor with a new knee is able to do singlehandedly what it take two men young enough to be his sons to do.

We're in deep shit, cause I sure ain't no superman. God help us all.

I'm 68 and I think our youth are in deep shit. Like at the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

Of course he could pick it up, but he'd probably get fired for carrying it himself. Most chain companies are extremely aware of OSHA.

Old Bob, exactly.

Mike in CT, I hadn't thought of that and you might be right. Sometimes workplace rules make no sense whatsoever, especially when they're driven by fear of government interference.

Yeah, kids these days. I can carry heavier boxes than my 22 year old son....embarrassing. I try to make excuses but it all boils down to he's a lazy wimp and I'm not. But I love him anyway. :-D

OSHA rules or not, TV carrying or not, we are basically having a generation of self serving, my way or the highway, spoiled, well I can't use the word I prefer but wussies will do!
