Pelosi is 81. Fauci is 81. Biden is 79.
Why the fuck will these people not let go of the reigns of power?
Why can they not enjoy their retirement with their millions of dollars?
Why is this country allowing itself to be strangled by the arthritic, liver spotted hands of people that long ago should have gone to an gated retirement community in Florida or Arizona?
Why has America allowed itself to become a senilocracy?
The comment by Jack hit the nail on the head.
It’s been a long time since I read Gulliver’s Travels, and I’m not sure I read all of it (something I must correct).
Struldbrugg were like humans but immortal. They also continued to age.
At age 80 they were declared legally dead, their property was taken and given to their inheritors and they were forbidden from having jobs or participating in civil society.
As explained by Swift:
Otherwise, as avarice is the necessary consequence of old age, those immortals would in time become proprietors of the whole nation, and engross the civil power, which, for want of abilities to manage, must end in the ruin of the public.
That is spot on what we are seeing.
These people are driven by sheer avarice.
My only disagreement with Swift is that 80 is too old.
Civil service should have forced retirement at the same age as one begins to collect Social Security.
Here is your check, now get the fuck out.
