Veterans, Texas Arrests, Old People

This man,73,wears a protective flap over his ear while Senator Ted Kennedy, Barack O'Bama, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton address the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

I wish I could shake this man's hand. I just want to know where he got it!

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you’re a senior you need to suck it up and give up the idea that you need any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We simply can’t afford to take care of you anymore. You don’t need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let’s take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need!!! New teeth, great!!! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any income tax.

I really think we have a Perfect Solution!!!

I'd rather everyone who couldn't afford to get health care could have Medicare. I just got out of a one night stay and four hours of cath lab work at our St. Lukes. The bill was only $43,600 +/- and Medicare and insurance picked up the bill.
That doesn't include the surgeon's bill or other medical support people. They will probably charge about half of the St. Lukes bill. All of that should be paid or cut back, then paid, too.
Why should people be dying in the U.S. for lack of medical help?

Oh that ear flap made me smile. I'd seen the one about the bullets!!! At least people are FINALLY beginning to stand up, speak up and try and take our country back from just being sold down the river.

Oh, howwwwlingly funny. Thank you so very much. With your permission, I am going to just cut and paste these two paragraphs and send them to some good friends of mine. For this goodie, I shall mail you something via email when I leave here. It is important. Personally, I'm almost 69, on my third bout with cancer and feeling quite well, thanks to Medicare and Blue Cross - both of which I have paid into for eons and eons. Whatever happened to being a part of this country, paying one's fair share and voting?

Amen, Trailbee. I don't get why intelligent folks can see what the government is trying to do to us! Of course use it. The more people that hear this, the better we all are!

Thank you. This is the response I got from one of my 'red-neck' friends: "...and why didn't we think of that before now? Could have told Hussain about this plan...a great one but we need to include lawyers"
