What's Wrong With This Picture?
Attention President Obama - Don't Repeat Bush's Mistakes
I could write dozens upon dozens of articles about the many errors of the recently departed Thief In Chief, aka Boy George, aka W, but I think our country is depressed enough so we don't need to be reminded of the policies that caused the economic meltdown that has our nation in its worst shape since the 1930s.
That said, I received an email from a friend of mine, who admittedly is much further to the political right than I am. As such, I'm sure Dave won't appreciate me framing this as one of the many failings of the Bush Administration.
Take a look at this:In 2007, 5 million of our older Americans had Not signed up in the given time, For their Medicare, Part D, drug plan-- They are old and confused. YET they were NOT Granted an extension. However, the 12 million illegal aliens in our Country were allowed to stay, protest, procreate, receive support monies, attend schools, Avoid paying income taxes, Have our teachers take 300 hours of Spanish as a Second Language And training at our expense, etc. THE GOVERNMENT MUST REALLY DISLIKE OUR OLDER AMERICAN CITIZENS,
OR THEY MUST REALLY LOVE TACOS!!!Let us see how the government will Handle the program for the 2009 Year for our senior citizens.
Stand By Senior Citizens, President Obama
Now President Obama, The Ball Is In Your Court
I hear President Obama is a big basketball fan and player, so he will no doubt enjoy my choice of words in the headline above. Truly and seriouly, though, Mr. President, this is another opportunity for you to show how much better our nation will be with you at the helm.
I will assume that my friend's reference to old people being "old and confused" as an attempt at humor, one which he is entitled to make since he is part of that crowd himself. All kidding aside, Dave did bring to light a problem that needs to be fixed. President Obama has already reversed many of the policies of the failed Bush Administration, and if there is a way that he can distinguish himself with the senior citizens of our great nation, I can think of no better way than to ensure that every American who is eligible to receive Medicare Part D be allowed to do so, without deadlines.
As for the rest of that email, I will confess that I have not checked those statements for accuracy, because my intention in posting it here was illustrate, in a humorous way, yet another opportunity for our new President to show the millions of Americans who voted for change that he was not simply talking about quarters, dimes and nickels!
