WHY WE LOVE OLD PEOPLE

 

A farmer stopped by the local mechanics shop to have his truck

fixed. They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live

far and would just walk home.

 

On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a

bucket and a gallon of paint. At the feed store he picked up a

couple of chickens and a goose.

 

Struggling outside the store he realized he had a problem - how to

carry his the purchases home!

 

While scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady

who told him she was lost.

 

She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to  1603 Mockingbird Lane?'

 

The farmer said, 'My farm is very close to that house. I'd walk you

there but I can't carry this lot.'

 

The old lady suggested, 'Why don't you put the can of paint in the

bucket?  Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each

arm and carry the goose in your other hand.'

 

'Why thank you very much,' he said and proceeded to walk the old

girl home.

 

On the way he said 'Let's take my short cut down this alley. We'll

be there in no time.'

 

The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, 'I am a

lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that

when we get in the alley you won't hold me against the wall, pull

up my skirt, and have your way with me?'

 

The farmer exclaimed, 'Holy smokes lady!  I'm carrying a bucket, a

gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could

I hold you up against the wall and do that?'

 

She replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put

the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens'.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
