The Truth Hurts Sometimes

Some friends e-mailed this to me, and it made me chuckle:

The Perfect Solution to Senior Health Care

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my friend the
other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas
that if you are 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. Lets 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.

And if we all do our part we can end up in the same prison and have one hell of a
social life.

There’s that good ol’ American ingenuity at work!

Another friend of mine sent this, and I just couldn’t resist posting it:

The truth hurts sometimes, doesn’t it?

There’s my two cents.


I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
