Maxine's Latest Advice!!


Here's the way it should  be:

Let's put the seniors in jail  and the criminals in nursing  homes.

This  would correct two things in one  motion:

Seniors would have access to  showers, hobbies and  walks.
They would receive unlimited free  prescriptions, dental and  medical
Treatment,  wheel chairs, etc.

They would  receive money instead of having to pay it  out..

They would  have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped  instantly... If  they fell or needed  assistance.

Bedding  would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed  and returned to  them.

A guard  would check on them every 20  minutes.

All meals  and snacks would be brought to  them.

They would  have family visits in a suite built for that  purpose..
They would have access to a library,  weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and  education...and free admission to in-house  concerts by  nationally recognized entertainment  artists.

Simple  clothing - i.e.. Shoes, slippers, pj's - and legal aid would be free,  upon request.
There  would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an  outdoor exercise yard complete with  gardens.

Each  senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no  cost.

They would  receive daily phone  calls.

There  would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the  ACLU would fight for their rights  and protection.

The guards  would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to,  with attorneys available, at no  charge to protect the seniors and their  families from abuse or  neglect.

As for the  criminals:

They would  receive cold  food.

They would  be left alone and  unsupervised.

They would  receive showers once a  week.

They would  live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per  month.

They  would have no hope of ever getting  out.

Sounds pretty good to  me!

And the latest news!!

The Secret Service issued new rules of conduct for agents Friday!

They can no longer get drunk, procure hookers or go to strip bars.
The rules say that from now on, if agents feel compelled to engage in such behavior, they can run for public office like everyone else.

Have a very Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Too funny, Sylvia, though the criminal-senior citizen one is "right on". Thanks for sharing. Mickie ;)

Unfortunately it is not funny at all and applies here as well except that our nursing homes cost about twice as much. Just think of having art classes or studying for a law degree at no cost where an ordinary student living on the bread line amasses a debt of over 100,00.00 dollars that is deducted from your salary in instalments once you start work. No wonder our graduates leave the country as soon as possible.

I love the new secret service rules!

So sad that criminals are treated betterthan our senior citizens! And it is a shame that even the Secret Service can't be trusted.

What Can I Say?

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.
