CASH FOR CODGERS
A friend sent this to me. Its tongue-in-cheek humor focuses on some tough issues about the health care debate. We all need to be informed about this and the other light-speed legislation being rammed through Congress.
Read . . . then think . . . really think.
Though we were involved in wedding celebrations and health issues of our own over here, I spent last week TIVO-ing Glenn Beck's series on the undercurrent in Washington.
I love America.
I love her history, I love her Founders. I love her ideals, but I think she is under attack from within. Is it blind ignorance? Well-planned tactics? In either case, we all need to open our mouths, pick up our pens and leave the comforts of the Silent Majority section of the bleachers. Stand up, America! Be heard, loud and clear!
Like I said . . . read . . . then think. Then do something. We all need to.
"CASH FOR CODGERS" and it works like this.
Couples wishing to access health care funds in order to pay for the delivery of a child will be required to turn in one old person. The amount the government grants them will be fixed according to a sliding scale. Older and more prescription dependent codgers will garner the highest amounts.
Special "Bonuses" will be paid for those submitting codgers in targeted groups, such as smokers, alcohol drinkers, persons 10 pounds over their government prescribed weight, and any member of the Republican Party.
Smaller bonuses will be given for codgers who consume beef, soda, fried foods, potato chips, lattes, whole milk, dairy products, bacon, Brussels sprouts, or Girl Scout Cookies.
All codgers will be rendered totally useless via toxic injection. This will insure that they are not secretly resold or their body parts harvested to keep other codgers in repair.
Better keep an eye on your kids, they may be looking at you as a trade-in.
