OK, will do.

Maybe I'm a little too touchy on this, too ready to push back. I'll tone it down.

Right. But keep in mind, I can not be trusted to go to the grocery store on my own (I do this a couple of times a week), nor make any important decisions -- remember, I still run two businesses, and I am still active as a flight instructor, I shoot regularly, I still . . . ah, no point discussing it. Jimmy123x has the only correct knowledge, why should I argue with him?

While there are certainly some folks are are out of touch at 85, there are other that are both in touch and sharp as a tack. Personally, I think RBG was out of touch long before 85, and that it had a lot more to do with her political bent than her age. At this point I am not sure whose “retirement” I am hoping to read about first, RBG’s or DiFi’s. The are both GDCs.

Situation awareness is defined as a continuous extraction of environmental information, integration of this information with previous knowledge to form a coherent mental picture in directing further perception and anticipating future events. Simply put, situational awareness mean knowing what is going on around you.

This wasn't directed at you and I'm sorry if it was taken as such. There are many people at that age that are fully functioning, incredibly intelligent, and totally with the world they live in etc. You happen to be one of them, including being a pilot/flight instructor. Of which you well know, few people your age could pass the FAA physical. My uncle was one of those people that was incredibly intelligent, sharp as a tack, and with it, until he recently passed away at 89 years old, albeit almost blind his last 10 years. He wrote the Army mental entrance exam decades ago that they still use today. But, we all have elderly relatives or friends that we know, that should have given up their drivers licenses 10 years ago.


However, a large percentage of people at 85 simply are not with the world they live in including Ginsberg whose views are so far left they aren't even constitutional. I can think of several politicians that have completely lost touch with the world they live in and should've retired far early than they did or should......Mccain, Ginsberg, Pelosi, Hillary, and Reid (well if it was up to me, the last 4 would have never been able to become politicians to begin with).

But I do believe that term limits in congress should be in effect as many have either gotten too feable or have taken advantage of their positions and are not looking out for the people they represent......

My comments were not meant as a personal insult to anyone on this forum and was a broad statement.

My dear father will be 91 next March. He still works as a tax attorney, speaks in front of crowds on Sundays, drives, and is sharp as a tack. Approximately ten years ago, some young guy stated on this forum that there should be a maximum age limit on drivers licenses. My reaction was two-fold:

1.) I thought the poster was a short-sighted idiot. I asked him if he had enough imagination to see into the future and imagine that even though he's still sharp as a tack, since he reached his own self-imposed age limit, how would he feel about having to give up his driver's license?

2.) How easily the poster would inhibit other people's freedom! Isn't that the essence of Liberalism? His obvious thought: "I don't think people above a certain age should be allowed to drive anymore, so I support a law taking the right to share the road away from people based on some arbitrary age limit that I will set."

That's all well and good, but what about when he gets old? Razz

More power to him. He is setting a great example for all of us.
