Not very well.
Start jumping the societal expectations hoops kiddo.

Some of us "olde-timers" already have our time in-plenty well enough-and then some.

And let me give you a tip-trolling on a lameazz computer thread all day, merely trying to "marginalize" others, will get you nowhere in the real world.

You see what the POTUS did today? Made an effort- of contribution BACK to society.

Pay attention, tat just what the U.S. drained-dry back bone needs-more GIVE, and far less taking, especially from those who do nothing but take.

I applaud his leadership by example of conscientiouness in doing so, no matter the labelduhm label.

Now, were YOU saying anything worthwhile?

You preach about the evils of Capitalism from the comfort of your weekend hillside estate.

You cry about the evils of "profiteering corporations", but still demand your weekly paycheck.

You believe "rich people" are evil, but are willing to over-look the fact that Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Michael Moore, and Al Franken are "rich", as well.

You scream and shout when innocent civilians are accidentally caught in the crossfire, but remain silent when terrorists kill them on purpose.

You believe that civilians caught in the crossfire of terrorists attacking American troops died because of America and not because of the actions of the terrorists that actually killed them.

You believe O.J. Simpson is actually looking for the "real killers".

You claim a higher moral ground in opposing the death penalty but see abortion as an expression of Women's Rights as guaranteed in the Constitution.

You believe that with regards to the 9/11 attack, America had it comming and deserved what happened.

You believe American troops are "war criminals", but a thug who killed somebody in cold blood is just a "victim of society".

You believe it was wrong for Bush to use images of 9/11 in political ads, but saw nothing wrong with Kerry using flag-draped caskets in his ads.

You whine about religious leaders and their involvement in politics, but only when the Reverend's name is Robertson... not Jackson or Sharpton.

You support Judges who interpret what they "think" the Constitution means instead of what it actually says.

You believe the meaning and definition of the Constitution should change based on your own feelings or opinions.

They would've invaded a country that had nothing to do with nothing, giving those responsible time to scurry all across the middle east & African continent, right! You people are stupid, I mean literally!
Knowing the long time friendship of the Bush's & Bin Laden's, the fact that they were in joint business ventures up until 9/11, the fact they were together when the"attacks" happened, & the fact that Bush hurried up & flew Bin Laden's family out of the US. If that don't stink to high heaven, then you lost 1 of you 5 senses. There is no way possible a democrat could've f cked up worst than that idiot at best, & accomplice at the least. You think the devil is still a snake in the garden, stupid! Look in the mirror!
FOR YEARS I have agreed with the (oft times which has been more a more Rep leaning idealogy) precept of to hell with middle east oil. we should become more self reliant.
But noooooooooo, the jackboots on the other side just have not been able to absorb THAT concept as of yet.
