New Medicare Program....what do you think!?

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

(* for the record, Z is not really advocating for shooting ANYONE :-)
Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals a 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.
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now..(at no cost to you).
And who will be paying for all of this? It’s the same government that just told you that you they cannot
afford for you to go into a home.   Plus, and because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes anymore. Is this a great country or what?

It's right, isn't it............what the.........?!!

Sorry I had to delete the computer question post...(it's in DRAFT FORM and I emailed the COMMENTS PAGE to my computer expert!)

I was so good at posting and now that Blogger's screwed up the posting page, and changed it very completely, I'm lost.
Can't set the times, can't adjust what post is first, then second.
It is a nightmare..

Anybody else agree?

HOW THE HECK DO YOU SET THE TIME? I do as it asks, click on DONE, and it reverts to the original time that was there! grrrrrr!!!
Why did they DO THIS!??

They Say/We Say said...

I gave the link to your question from the blogger help page-scheduling.
It said after you select the time and day on the calender (and done)--------

then click publish.

It said don't worry it will be seen only at the date and time scheduled.

"Once you've selected a new date and time, be sure to click Publish. Don't worry -- your post will only publish at the date and time that you've determined in the settings."

here it is again

Schedule Your Post

Oh, that was me deleting on the Computer Post-comments. I could not make my fingers work trying to do the code for the link.

Well the downside is that your roommates are a good bit less convivial than they would be in an old folks home.

z - where can I sign up to get this free handgun?

If one were to choose this route, why stop at only four?

The Battle for the presidency has begun,as the Church and the Cardinal

All I have to say to my Obama loving friends is , oh well, you win one day, you lose the next day, you don't take it personally.

Well folks, now we really know who and what we are dealing with.

Speedy G said... plan is to use the gun to rob the toll Plaza on the Jersey Turnpike at 3am Thanksgiving morning. I'll either get away with millions and retire in the Bahama's, OR avail myself of the Uncle Sam Cushy Retirement Home System you posted about.

Maybe I'm just not "patriotic" enough to shoot four politicians. I'm trying more and more to become a part of the "Me" Generation (GenX).

Fredd said...

Z: Your tongue in cheek initiagtive will only work as long as the geezers only bag liberal politicians. Of course, this policy would only last until all the liberal politicians have been bagged, and nobody except conservative politicians show up for the vote in the legislatures.

Then we could start to see some sense in government.

FairWitness said...

I don't know about prison being a long term care program. Although it is silly that our society provides all types of care to prisoners.

I also think families and communities need to step up and provide care for their aging relatives. If there is no nursing home space available, then families and caring citizens need to sacrifice and do what's right.

We did and it cost us plenty for 7 and a half years. We're still trying to dig out from the debt we incurred caring for my father-in-law. But he deserved to be looked after by people who loved & respected him. It was our responsibility.

And to those of us aging now, put more money aside for your own old age, so you will be in a position to pay for your needs.


Don't expect your fellow citizens, the taxpayers, to take care of you. It's our own responsibility to sustain ourselves in retirement.

Z said...

They Say/We Say: Thank you for going to this trouble. The problem is that when I change the time and mark the date and push DONE, all looks fine, but when I go back and check that the time's set, etc., I see that it's fallen back to the time that it was when I set it, the new time (I like to set it to post at 12:00AM of the next day) has disappeared. I did click DONE and PUBLISH, and it just won't stick!! And the POSTING page doesn't say SCHEDULED as it used to, it shows the old time and DRAFT!
I'll try again tonight...I hope it works! thanks very much.

Gman...definitely :-)

SF...why, indeed!

PO'd Irishman; I think this has really shown us what we're dealing with; in other words "NOTHING YOU LIKE IS VALID, ONLY WHAT OBAMA WANTS GOES" sad

Speedy...good luck!

Fredd...has to be libs they 'off' or we're in even worse shape than now.

FW...that is the key; families need to stick together, save for it, and help their elderly. Our country won't really work if we don't do that as much as we can; we simply don't have the money.

Lisa said...

Maybe those Hollywood elitist Obama loving $35,000 per plate hypocrites should convert one or two of their many mansions to house those less fortunate. I think we should start with Bill Maher and Michael Moore.
Waddya think?

shoprat said...

It's sad that we pay so much to care for murderers, drug-dealers, rapists, child-molesters etc. If we paid less for them maybe their would be a bit less debt.

Let em eat gruel and sleep on bare mattresses and wear the same suit for a couple days. It's supposed to be prison.

Z said...

Isn't it great, too, that no libs have commented on this?
I've mentioned before, when there's incontrovertible irony or obvious truth, they scamper :-)

Bunkerville said...

I work in Healthcare and it is as you said. Heart surgery,Kidney transplants, you name it, they get it. Plus they are never alone. Two guards to make sure their call bell is answered pronto.

Leticia said...

Z, your gift is in the mail. I love ya!

It seems like we are no longer a country of a constitution or of laws.

Chuck said...

I'm with Silverfiddle, most handguns hold at east six. That's the government, always cutting corners...

Bob said...

Do I have to kill more than one? I know a couple of dozen old geezers that might like their turn.

Z: Why don't you get off Blogger and onto Cross over to the Light!

I'm going to facebook this one.

beamish said...

I was so good at posting and now that Blogger's screwed up the posting page, and changed it very completely, I'm lost.

In the top right corner of the screen, you'll see an icon that looks like a gear (or a a silhouette of a cruller donut).

Click it, and you'll get the option to return to the "old," more familiar Blogger interface.


Kid said...

Beautiful Perspective. I wouldn't kill someone to get int. I wonder what the smallest felony offense is.

Here's another idea though. What does a nursing home cost? 5k a month minimum right? You could inhabit a fairly nice hotel somewhere not in California for a lot less And have maid service, a restaurant within walking distance, cable TV, Internet, all provided at the room fee. I'm sure a long term rate could be negotiated and extended as necessary. That's MY plan if and when.

Kid said...

Z, I post my stuff Immediately upon creation. As should you. We need your thoughts as soon as they are spawned and begin populating the universe like space-bound hummingbirds.

I'm down here in South FlaDUH...home of the twerp DWS....and the Ives Dairy Road of one Temple after another with the most wealthiest, ,liberal Jews on the face of the earth.

People so rich...the malls come to them.

If I had to choose between DWS and Alan West....Hmmmmm....let me think. I guess all of south FlaDUH would have to sit shiva for a month or two. As they would if they couldn't get Corn Beef or Pastrami at Mel's Deli.

Of course there's always the chance that her G35 Infinity ( remember she said BUY AMERICAN while getting her fat ass into the Nissan? ) will get ....Oh...I dunno...traffic is real bad on I95. Real bad.

Kid said...

Imp, haha, Thanks for the tip. I could probably even open up a chicken fajita stand down there.

Anonymous said...

KID..if Z has your email address....send it to her....she'll send it to me...If that's cool and mine to you.

For obvious reasons...I ain't gonna post it here. See....Ducky loves me.

We can have some ideas to share and take the tech shit off of Z's place.

I like to go over OS's and all. Plus...WIN7 pisses me off. I have it loaded on my Intel Mac....and it's so damn top heavy, error prone and dorky....I on;y use it with VDM so I can use my 1990 version of Quicken and Cardfile...LOL

Imp, Sent

I just did a schedule post for 1:30pm sat. When clicked done and clicked published it said schedule on the right side. I followed the blogger instructions.
Click the time and a drop down list with all the times shows up and select one (and the date from the calender or leave the date if later on the same day) and then click done and then publish. It worked for me.
You can not type the time-you have to select one from the drop down list.
I first typed in the time--like you said when I went back it was the original time not the time I typed. That is how (when) I looked for the schedule help article.
I got so mad at the new gmail layout that I sent a feed back to gmail and told them that Yahoo had a better mail experience.
I know how you feel about the new google ideas...

Bob said...

Where did Z go? Has anybody seen Z?

Hello, is anybody home?

I am used to seeing two to three blogs per day from this indomitable lady. I worry lest she has gotten offended, or lost interest.

MK said...

Crazy but true. Funny how this western world of ours has become so lop-sided. Those who work are pushed aside, those who don't and won't are welcomed in.

Z said...

Bob, that is THE nicest comment I've maybe ever got! Thanks...for missing me!

My computer gal had her Team Viewer going for the last TWELVE HOURS...running four programs to see how much damage the hackers had done.
She ran all four programs twice.
Says she found NOTHING. Of course, I'm the only dope in computer history who, as CYNICAL as I usually am about these things, actually welcomed in what I thought were a Tech Dept for fixing Windows XP problems and though EVERY Computer Geek I know said it's a hoax, they might have been LEGIT after all? :-)

Also, she took everything off and reinstalled...I'm still not going on my bank account for a while ...and she's going to run the spyware stuff again soon. man.

Thanks for missing me!

Kid, are you telling me I've got to into my other email account now :-( Okay..I"ll check it; it's such a pain in the **** but for you and Imp, "the woyld" :-) Will do that soon.

THEY SAY/WE know, I think I DID type in the time and then picked from the list and it seemed to stick! Thanks SO MUCH...maybe that was my problem.

But, I'm thinking
BEAMISH has the answer; get the old way to do it back! (Thanks Beamish, I appreciate that... will check that out)

Kid, I really smiled when you said I need to publish immediately..that's very kind of you!

Man, let a lady be gone for a day, and look at the nice stuff I hear :-)

I love you guys. xxx

Z said...

Beamish...I'm back on the 'good ol' Blogger' I work with well.
thanks for the tip

Anonymous said...

" they might have been LEGIT after all? :-)"... far as I can tell they're legit. They're not associated with or an extension of MS support ( which is non existent ) but do support Windows OS's and apps.

5th time Now....

BTW...I see where Whitney Houston has passed at 48!!!

Tell ya what though..I'm getting totally pissed off at having to put in that GD code four times before I can publish a comment.

Z said...

Imp, I'm beginning to think they were legit but I can't worry about it...better to get it all taken off and replaced. I didn't need the worries and not one computer expert Geek thought I should keep it on...

I'm feeling better now that it's been purged..!!

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

As someone who has worked in Corrections (and still works) for the third largest sheriff's department in the state of Fornicalia, I can tell you that all of those things would occur in this state. You WOULD get better care in custody, charged with a crime, than on the outs.

That is no joke.


Z said... demoralizing for the workers at those institutions; they're fighting tooth and nail for any benefits and seeing criminals get anything they possibly could need, including free organ transplants. UNBELIEVABLE
