The picture of that kid in the first essay on this site is me. It was me when I was in my late 40's. I guess that is long enough ago that I should have realized there were some physical changes.
Sexagenerians such as I feel we are lots younger, however. In the Congressional primary in 2010, Steve, Corbett. local radio angagonist tried to make sexagenarian into a dirty word but he public did not buy it. (BTW, Mr. Corbett, that means people between the ages of 60 and 69 -- you will soon qualify. Hah!)
Yes, I Am Pro-Baby!
I support protection of the unborn. I am father to three wonderful grown-up babies and I would not trade any of them for the whole world. A baby is a heart melter even more than butter on black pavement on a hot day. Yet, for many, the same baby, reinserted into its mother's womb, is eligible for the executioner's knife.
I have been challenged on my pro-baby stance and that is why I decided to change the words from pro-life to pro-baby. I want the little guy, who is forming his or her life in the womb to be the focus of the argument of whether he or she lives or dies.
Yes, I am pro-mom. Pro-baby and pro-mom are synonyms. Obviously, so is this great friend of America, Congressman Ron Paul.
Fellow Citizens of Pennsylvania, soon, I hope to present myself as a Candidate to be your United States Senator from Pennsylvania. As you know, this seat is currently held by Representative Robert Casey Jr., the son of Robert Casey Sr., one of the finest Governors ever in the State of Pennsylvania.
Unfortunately for Pennsylvanians, Bob Casey Jr. is no Bob Casey Sr. In a nutshell, that is why I hope to be running as a Democrat against Mr. Casey and others in the Primary Election on Tuesday April 24, 2012. I do not yet know who my opponent will be in the General Election.
I am proud to say that--but for a few years--I would be a lifetime Democrat, and a lifetime resident of Northeastern PA. Right after I earned my Bachelor of Science from King's College at the age of 21, I competed in a tough job market, and was hired to work as a Systems Engineer at IBM in Utica, New York. For two years, while living in Utica, New York, I was a registered Independent.
My dad, a lifetime Democrat, was a conservative and a good man. He was a staunch believer in the importance of labor unions. He worked as a laborer at Stegmaier Brewery on "Brewery Hill" in Wilkes-Barre until the
Stegmaier label was purchased by the Lion Incorporated. At that time, the Lion proudly brewed Gibbons Beer. [G-I_B-B-O-N-S, pure refreshing Gibbons. If it's Gibbons, it's good so they next time you should say gimme gimme gimme gimme Gibbons]
