What about us OWG's?

Asked by Strauss (21032points) August 23rd, 2012

I recently walked past the local office of a presidential candidate and saw a number of signs and bumper stickers. There were “Women for…”, “Young People for…”, “Latinos for…”, “African-Americans for…”, “Veterans for…”; What I wanted to see that would reflect my demographic is “Old White Guys for…”. Am I now a member of a discriminated-against group?

No, you are not. You are not discriminated against, but you have, if you are truly old, protection against age discrimination. Be case you are not special does not mean you are being excluded; you are already included in just about everything.

Each of those groups needs some identification because otherwise their concerns are crowded out by those of old white guys. But you can always craft a sign of your own showing your support for the candidate.

I can think of at least one thing that doesn’t discriminate against OWG. Prostate cancer loves us.

We are forming our own party. The “Hey you kids, get off my lawn!” party.

What about OWG’s, as in ” old white geese.” My 14 year old gander demands free bread and quality, affordable, fowl care in his old geezer hood.
His slogan is ” Give geese a chance!” lol
