The last one at least has some potential merit - age can confer wisdom and certainly brings greater experience to draw from.

Counterpoint:

What appears on the surface to be wisdom is many times rote close-mindedness. "Let me tell you what's gonna work here, xyz." "We've always done it this way, and it's always worked. We're here after all, aren't we?" "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." All symptoms of hardening of the attitudes.

More experience is more likely to bring wisdom if there's a range of experiences, including failure, poverty, discrimination, lack and want. Rich, old, white men, surrounded by other rich, old, white men...diminishes this range, diminishing the chances for more wisdom, reinforcing the patriarchy...rinse, repeat.

Bring back slavery. It worked just fine. Now we have riots and gun play in the streets. WE even had to fire high pressure fire hoses at their children to keep them in line. Those evil liberals.

The above statements do not necessarily reflect the opinions of The Cellar, or of those who dwell therein.

His twitter response made it even funnier. It's deleted now, but he accused his family of ganging up on him for their own political gain with the tagline, "Stalin would be proud!"

I (and the ad) was pretty ho-hum.

Then they started introducing themselves.
