I thought Strom was dead?

"Run for office?" Shuffle is more like it.

NEWman? More like OLDman, am I right?

He should run for President.

"Get off my White House lawn!"

Seriously though, I liked his ideas and thoughts. Wish he was like 40 - 50 years younger.
 
2014-02-18 06:49:52 PM
Awww, he thinks he's people.
 
2014-02-18 06:52:11 PM
After reading the article, that guy actually makes some sense.

He's in Florida. That agenda is doubtful to fly.

I have some friends who live in the area.  From his ideas they reported he is better than the average politician and with his age maybe he won't be as easy to buy off.

An old white man from Florida who doesn't hate everybody else and thinks government should help people?

Unpossible.

More likely to Hover-Round for office.

We asked Joe what the secret is to living to age 100. He says he has no idea; could be he never smoked, drank, or chased women.

He's a pet rock for fark's sake. *should sweep the primaries in record time*

Me too.

Bravo to you, Joe! Thanks for caring about those who will one day be left behind.

Typical politician -- will not have to live with the consequences of his actions.

As per the article, he's "chasing" a very nice 94 year old lady currently.  Hope I can be doing that (for me it would be chasing men) when I'm 101.

Guy has seen a lot of social change first hand in his 101 years (and some things that stay the same).  First job was for Social Security Administration where he had to go out in field to convince people that SS was beneificial to society. (Can be compared to job of navigator for new Obama Care -- convincing people to sign up for this new program).  And he was one of the first advocates for community based care for his retarded daughter when such a thing did not exist. Wish I could vote for him.

Screw that, Id rather live 70 Hunter S Thompson years than 101 booze, drug, women,etc free years.

Well what are you going to do when you hit 101?

"never smoked, drank, or chased women "


I believe two of those three things. Given he's a human male, guess which ones.
 
2014-02-18 08:40:47 PM
I'd much rather he run to the store and get me a soda. Why aren't these hidden gems working for us?! By us I mean me. "can't hire children" they say

Well.. it keeps him from driving...

Never smoked, drank, or chased women?  What the hell are you waiting for???????
 
2014-02-18 09:32:50 PM
Or, as the other white Floridians call him, "the youngster".
 
2014-02-18 11:08:22 PM
Great! Just what Florida needs, a politician who has an answer for everything. As long as the answer is "prunes".
 
2014-02-18 11:29:23 PM
He's a proud supporter of telegraph-neutrality and opposes the Kaiser, so he has my vote!
