What is more important than a middle aged woman keeping herself in good physical shape is her making sure she keeps her spouse or significant other in shape.

As men age, well, let us begin at 40-years-old. Many people nearing this age are trying to better their physique or are interested in regaining that youthful muscle. It is usually around 40 that the testosterone began to noticeably wane and bones begin their journey to becoming smaller and weaker. Or skin starts to lose some it its natural elasticity and will later sag.

Health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and stroke become talk around the water cooler as joint pains and back pains appear more often.

Remember this aphorism? “If one person is enslaved, then we are all enslaved.” Slavery as an institution, in the Old South, was allegedly CONCEIVED by landowners (land barons) and their perceived necessity of ‘free, cheap labor’, not unlike illegals and migrant workers of today. In the Old South, slaves were prohibited from learning how to read and write; not allowed to own property; families were systematically and intentionally divided—males sold without consideration for the fatherless children and unprotected women that remained behind or sold to other landowners; women were abused by the slave masters and used for breeding; slaves were commodities, traded and sold on the whim of the master. Masters controlled all necessities for survival: food, water, shelter, clothing, family units, medical attention and, of course, education.

In America most of us believe we live in a country that is a meritocracy and that for the most part people are rewarded based on their ability and effort. Meritocracy usually reveals itself by a rise in world standing over the course of time. According to polls Americans are more likely to believe that people are rewarded for their intelligence and skills and are less likely to believe that family wealth plays a key role in getting ahead.
