    as your quotes from him suggest, then remember that he is getting stupider by the day.

    As for age, I don't know. I'm turning 60 this year and wouldn't think of saying "fark you, I've got mine." And, on top of that, it sounds like your father's "mine" is pretty seriously threatened. I think there is a lot of cognitive dissonance involved in this. It sounds to me as though these are the things that he has believed his whole life and now he has just become more dug in as everything has become more polarized.

    I'm sorry for you having to reconcile all of the difficult feelings this must raise for you.

      "God must love stupid people: He/She made so many of them."
