I’ve waited five years to do this, living in a la-la-land of denial and watery-thin excuses. No more. It took the insanely stupid and vocal opposition to health care reform to push me right over the edge and into the fold of the American Association for Retired Persons.
Citizens arming themselves for town hall meetings? Equating universal health care with Nazis? Mouth-flapping, giant waste-of-skin morons who don’t know that Medicare is a government-run health care system?
Good 50-plus year olds, it’s time to show support for AARP and their leadership in this debate. (If you need a dose of “stupid” to convince yourself of the need to start speaking out against the lies and scare tactics, browse the “comments” section of the afore-noted link.) Sixteen bucks a year for you and your spouse. I can get my membership free thanks to GH, but I’m getting my own card and sending them a donation.
Show the AARP some love – with a supportive comment or a new membership. You needn’t be 50 to leave them a comment, or give a donation. We need them in our corner.
