A New Look at Senior Health Care!!

So you're a sick senior citizen and the government says there is  no nursing home available for you, what do you do?
Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You  are allowed to shoot four Congressmen.

Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals
day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and all the health
care you need! Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They're all covered. 

And, as an added
bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now.

And who will be paying for all of this? It's the same government that just told 
you that they cannot afford for you to go into a home.

Plus, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes anymore. 
Is this a great country or what?

Oh, yes! And one more thing!


The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States' Capital this Christmas season. This isn't for any religious reason. They simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in the Nation's Capitol. The search for a Virgin continues. There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.

This is too funny! Unfortunately, it's also true.

I never tire of reading that "nativity story" about our nation's capital/capitol. And these days, it couldn't be MORE TRUE.

Love, love, LOVE the nursing home news as well.

I do hope you'll stop by to visit with me.

I love the cynical Sylvia.

If this didn't contain so much truth, it would be even funnier. Of course, the bulletin about the Nativity Scene also contains some truth.

Ah, yes. It seems that the US is becoming the whoopie cushion of the world.

Jack said...

This is a crazy world, isn't it?

Cildemer said...

Hi hi hi hi! What a laugh!
Fortunately we can still have a good laugh from time to time in this silly world!
Thanks for sharing, Sylvia;o)

Hope you are having a nice and happy week****

Funny, but also very sardonic, Sylvia. We do get a long way off the track sometimes, don't we....

EcoRover said...

Too funny, and too sad at the same time. Gives "2nd Amendment solution" new meaning (nice handgun, by the way--is that a Colt Anaconda .44?).

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

hope your day is going well.

Hilarious Sylvia, but with an ironic twist!!

Kay said...

This is so funny, Sylvia. I love it! The sad thing is there's an element of truth, isn't there? I'm going to have to learn to shoot straight.

Excellent idea ! Some of our homeless steal just before winter so they are locked in in a warm cell, daily food, health care, etc. and in spring they get out again. Also a good solution !

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
