Zed may be gray, but he is far more lethal than most. MasterDiver Sep 10 2019 at 7:30 am Beware of old men who have grown old in a profession where most die young. Zar Belk! Too Tall Sep 10 2019 at 12:24 am As Progtard DildoCrats have gone Full Retard mode, the only thing that will prevent the next (un)Civil war is Darwinian Extinction of the Left, because they have become too stupid to survive. Roland Deschain Sep 10 2019 at 1:14 pm Maybe if we wait long enough they will abortion themselves out of existence. I don’t think we have that long, unfortunately. John M. Sep 10 2019 at 12:27 am “Fight me if you must but remember, I have grown old in a profession where most men die young…” MasterDiver Sep 10 2019 at 7:30 am ZAR BELK! interventor Sep 10 2019 at 12:29 am Sam lied about her age, when she first dated Zed. She was several years younger than she said. Lucky Zed. Fox2! Sep 10 2019 at 1:10 am Like the young(ish) girls who married Civil War veterans in their 60s or later? The last known Confederate widow died in 2008. She was born in 1914, and married her husband in 1934, when he was 84 years old. He died in 1937. kadaka Sep 10 2019 at 2:29 am About page, which could use some updating, sez Zed’s 46 with Sam at 40 so it’s not a huge gap. And by the passive retconning effects of webcomic chronal distortion they’ve barely aged since 2002. Although why she would have been lying then about being over 40, when that’s a red line for men instinctively seeking more-fertile partners, is quite mysterious. Many women stop counting at 39 for a decade or so. interventor Sep 10 2019 at 8:41 am Zed didn’t like to date ladies quite a bit younger than himself. Polly Cy Sep 10 2019 at 12:10 pm Thanks! I was thinking of posting the same thing. But I’ve always wondered and I don’t think it was ever made clear: are you sure Sam was making herself younger? She was awfully familiar with old tech. WayneM Sep 10 2019 at 12:38 am As someone whose every gray was earned, the cautions are understatement. My tolerance for nonsense isn’t what it once was… Saaruuk Sep 10 2019 at 5:06 am Quote: Wayne M……”My tolerance for nonsense isn’t what it once was…” And most assuredly neither is mine……(Pushing 70…..and as my closest friends are wont to say, “In spite of my efforts.”) 😀 😀 😀 Halley Sep 10 2019 at 5:27 am I greyed early, went Red State midway, and can still play the blues… all bases covered ; ) JTC Sep 10 2019 at 10:16 am Talk about early; streaks in my mid-20’s (hey, you be a husband and father at 17 and see what happens) and it went top down instead of on the sides and moving up, all white now except the skin-tone on top. ;( Still, can’t help but feel our generation’s gray hairs don’t measure up to the Greatest Gen’s…maybe it’s just because they saved the world in WWII and that was my daddy’s time. Hope I’m wrong and we can save it again because it sure as hell needs savin’. Tagg Sep 10 2019 at 6:55 am As the song says, “I ain’t as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was.” Tagg Sep 10 2019 at 7:01 am And I might add, when done right, once usually gets the job done. Too Tall Sep 10 2019 at 8:18 am My fellow Deplorables, Our doctor’s did NOT say we would never grow old… They said we would never grow up! Saaruuk Sep 10 2019 at 8:49 am Growing old is mandatory…..growing UP is optional……and I opted out a helluva long time ago. 😛 Willie k Sep 10 2019 at 8:23 am I don’t care if it turns color, as long as it doesn’t turn loose. Sam Sep 10 2019 at 3:46 pm Yeah, I used to say I don’t care if it goes gray, so long as it doesn’t go away. Well, it did both. I don’t look at the back of my head in the mirror very often, so was surprised one day when I brushed my hair in the morning and it hurt. Sunburned! I had been outside the day before, and hadn’t realized I now had a reason to wear a hat. interventor Sep 10 2019 at 8:43 am I’m past 70 with salt and pepper hair. No problem, most of my male friends are bald eagles. John M. Sep 10 2019 at 5:04 pm I’m 72 and just renewed my drivers license. Two major changes: They listed my hair color as “grey” and I finally got to “Restriction 1” (Corrective Lenses) The picture looks like death warmed over, but then again… interventor Sep 10 2019 at 5:12 pm They changed mine to grey. But, after cataract surgery, they took off the corrective lenses. Brent Dotson Sep 10 2019 at 9:08 pm Yep, 68 here. Salt and Pepper hair. I’ve had thick hair all my life. Gray kind of thins it some. Precision270 Sep 10 2019 at 8:54 am I once colored out the gray at my temples when my late wife was still alive. She had a fit. I thought it was because she was 9 years my senior and it helped us to look closer in age. I colored out the gray when I was with my first serious GF after I recovered(ish) fr0m that loss. She had a fit. She is 8 years my junior. Just because I am a slow learner with some things. I did the same thing with the current GF. She also had a fit. She is also 8 years my junior. Seems that some women like visual of the wisdom attained by those who have learned enough to live through dangerous times. JTC Sep 10 2019 at 9:12 am So…the Blue and the Red? Don’t neglect the White…and not just the hair; it’s what has kept the other colors from running. They don’t really want to hear that on the left though, so I’m not sure how well this here Koombiyah party is going to work. 🙁 kadaka Sep 10 2019 at 12:59 pm The Trayvon Hoax That Divided America Is About to Be Exposed On Monday. September 16, Joel Gilbert will preview his new documentary, “The Trayvon Hoax,” in the 500-seat Ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The screening begins at 1 p.m. Admission is free, and Gilbert is encouraging all interested parties to come see for themselves what could be a game-changer in the way the media report racially-charged news. Gilbert’s findings are that significant. … At the end of his research, Gilbert knew Trayvon Martin better than his parents did, literally. As their deposition revealed, they had no idea how Martin’s life had descended into a violent mix of street fighting, guns, drugs, burglary, and sex. Although both parents made good incomes, their separate lives created an abyss where a home should have been, and their once promising son fell straight to the bottom of it. High possibility of riots as news of “this smear job of an innocent boy” by “Trump’s MAGA racist fascists” gets circulated. If the Antifa-loving outrage mob doesn’t get it shut down then “The Trayvon Hoax” book and documentary will hit Amazon later this week. We might see a whole bunch of fights besides Trayvon’s that never should have started. JTC Sep 10 2019 at 2:12 pm Martin was a nascent thug whose death almost certainly spared his future victims from who knows what. OTOH, Zimmerman’s taking him out, while absolutely justified and necessary at the time and circumstance he did it, could have absolutely been avoided by not putting himself in that circumstance. In doing so, he ended Martin’s life, and for all intents and purposes, ended his own. Notwithstanding the idiocy and intentional racial strife created and stoked by media, the POS prosecutor, and of course the Racist in Chief at the time, the whole episode was a study in exactly what not to do as an armed citizen. Sorry to those potential future victims of the little thug, but preemptive street justice is not how it works. I got into a back and forth with the esteemed expert Mas Ayoob over this in comments on his series dealing with it, as I felt the incident itself and Mas’ defense of it could encourage more similar sheepdog activity -and let’s face it there are way to many of those types walking around with their CCW and their Glock looking for an excuse to intervene- but I stand by my position because I know it is right. And in Ayoob’s heart, so does he. You are probably right that this book and film will spawn more violent responses that never should happen, but the truth is inescapable that the incident itself never should have either. JTC Sep 10 2019 at 1:09 pm Huh. https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/trump-john-bolton-fired-national-security-adviser Bolton is definitely one of those gray-haired old dudes you don’t want to fuck with, unless you’re Trump I guess. Big-time hawk, a default position I often agree with but no always, and I don’t know enough about the underlying issues to take a position, other than to support the CEO whose judgment I have come to trust. WayneM Sep 11 2019 at 12:35 am I was kind of shocked to hear Bolton was out. I won’t miss him like Mad Dog Mattis but still… wow… Pamela Sep 10 2019 at 11:29 pm He maybe gray, but he has a fire in the furnace NotYetInACamp Sep 11 2019 at 3:27 am My hair makes PDJT’s look sickly when I take care of it. 🙂 Instead of grey hair, I have red hair starting to sprinkle into the blond. And JTC, more than 20 years before Trayvon met his end, I had my 38 pulled from my pocket and held against the gut of a 20 something muscled fit yute from Trayvon’s neighborhood as he slammed me against my car outside of my home on Miami Beach. I took the hit because I was younger than now and his partner in crime who had participated in the taunts of me beforehand while they corralled me back against my car, must have considered that I was serious when I said that I was in fear of my life and that I had a gun in my pocket. The second assailant stopped his several foot sprint at me when he saw the gun come out and go into his partner in crime’s gut. His stopping enabled me to decide to see if the other one slamming into me was severe enough to overcome my briefcase interfering with him as I was bounced off my car. Evidently I did not start losing consciousness upon which two double taps would have resulted. After I pushed him off the other one grabbed him and though he had started a new ration of garbage, pulled him away and away from the scene and down the street and around the corner. Only later he must have explained how the attacker may have received a pardon from injury or death. His friend stopping his own charge at me and enabled me to choose to take the hit and decide to not shoot one or both of them, as that was in process. Just because it did not happen does not mean that someone did not have the right to do so and actually had the ability to do so and was only not doing so because of a reason unto themselves, not the criminal attacker. It feels better for me not having shot one or both as could have happened. And my awareness of their races had nothing to do with my decision. For all that I knew one of their parents could have been a friend or schoolmate, certainly one would have been their neighbor. Seniors may not risk taking the hit, or having their head bounced off concrete. I have in the past cleared the block and other blocks of drug sellers because I am a homie. Homies take care of their home. Age is irrelevant. Doggo Sep 12 2019 at 11:31 am As usual with a team led by the left, they’re dividing the constituents by identifiable features then picking and choosing which ones to pander to and which ones to demonize. A right-led effort should start with what the constituents have in common “We’re all Americans and we want to make sure that everything is fair. We want justice. We want everyone to receive the fruits of their labors. We want to be safe. We want freedom of speech. We want freedom of religion. We want etc” Of course, defining those terms is where the problems start.
