The Retiree Party

Italy is a rapidly aging country, and sclerotic politics, that much is widely known.  Once again, however, I was to be surprised by an election billboard posted near our home:

partito_pensionati

This is for the “Partito Pensionati” or, translated literally, the “retiree party”.  Their motto is “get off our lawn, you damn kids”.  Not really, I looked it up and it’s actually “we’ve got ours, now kiss off”.  Ok, I made that one up too.   Leave your own motto for the “Retiree Party” in the comments below.
