So, I'm reading a popular LJ community celebrity site and one of the little bitches says "The elderly shouldn't be allowed on the internet." What? Oh, I mean...wut?

They are warriors for justice for every single cause in the world: Bring down those bigots! Call out those who say and do stupid things! Defend Native American rights and persecute those rapists and pedophiles! But to hell with old people. Why care about elder abuse. Show no compassion for those who are aging. Fuck them old folks who clog up our roadways and make us yell so they can hear us. Getting old is a shame and crime and not something that will ever happen to us beautiful young things. Getting old is the worst thing in world.

Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you.

After the earthquake in Japan, a group of elderly people stepped forward and offered to go in help clean up the radioactive materials in the plant that was damaged. They figured it was okay if they got sick because they were going to die soon anyway and this way they could serve their country and save lives. This is true courage.


Beatitudes for Friends of the Aged

BLESSED are they who understand my faltering step and palsied hand.
BLESSED are they who know that my ears today must strain to catch the things they say.
BLESSED are they who seem to know that my eyes are dim and my wits are slow.
BLESSED are they who looked away when coffee spilled at the table today.
BLESSED are they with a cheery smile who stop to chat for a little while.
BLESSED are they who never say, "You've told that story twice today."
BLESSED are they who know the ways to bring back memories of yesterdays.
BLESSED are they who make it known that I'm loved, respected and not alone.
BLESSED are they who know I'm at a loss to find the strength to carry the Cross.
BLESSED are they who ease the days on my journey Home in loving ways.

I have no idea, but what pissed me off more were all the replies to his/her comment agreeing with the bratty special snowflake.

The Internet is full of trolls and haters.

Fuck 'em.

Don't they realize they'll be old one day?

They might not get old, if they're that dumb. Just sayin' (not wishing it or anything). Some people are actually too stupid to live. And of course if they're not too stupid, then they will get old.

Well put. I'm wishing them a long life and not necessarily a healthy one.
