Huge response to purposing “Hey Congress! Let’s Put The Seniors In Jail, & Criminals In A Nursing Home!” Congress apparently have forgotten that before Congress started dipping into the Social Security SURPLUS funds we had in the 80’s for their own pet projects, perks and using that money to pay the interest on the big Federal budget deficits they created as a result, there was more than enough money to cover hardworking seniors who had contributed billions of dollars all their life. 100% of the seniors who have responded to this LOVED the idea.
Put The Seniors In Jail, & Criminals In A Nursing Home!
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.

It was as if there was a sign hanging here saying “please photograph me”. I was happy to oblige. Every now and then you find a scene that is breathtaking – either because it is beautiful or unique. Sometimes it is both.”

Over 5 million views in just over a day, as a YouTube user posted a Christmas morning video that has gone viral. Daniel Buckhannan made a video of his father’s reaction to getting tickets to the BCS National Championship game in Miami. Buckhannan’s dad is a huge Alabama fan who at first thought he was getting a fancy new hat like the legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant wore during his tenure, but the biggest surprise was inside of the hat. “We’re going to the game, Pop,” said Daniel Buckhannan. Buckhannan’s father then became speechless and overwhelmed with joy. After the excitement died down, his next concern was: “Where are the seats?”

In 1986, James M. Schmidt, a Lance Corporal stationed in Washington, D.C. wrote the poem “Merry Christmas, My Friend”. It went from hanging on the door of the gym of the Bachelor Enlisted Quarters at the Marine Barracks, to being published in the Marine Corps Gazette distributed worldwide after a Colonel spotted it & had copies sent to each department at the Barracks! Then in 2003, Father Ted Berndt and his oldest daughter, Ellen Stout, collaborated to record “A Soldier’s Silent Night,” with Dad narrating and Ellen producing. Father Ted was a proud WWII Marine, Purple Heart recipient, and former radio guy in the ’40′s, who was especially proud to complete this recording in one take. Five months after completing the project, Father Ted was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As he was battling that disease, Ellen was honored to accept a national A.I.R. (Achievement in Radio) award from the March of Dimes on his behalf.

On Christmas night, December 25, look in the east just after sunset to see the nearly full moon next to the bright planet Jupiter in the east-southeast sky. Shining brilliantly to the upper left of the bright, nearly full moon will be a silvery “star” with a steady glow. That’s Jupiter, beaming like a holiday ornament right next to our moon! In the eastern and central United States, the moon and Jupiter will appear closest together during the late afternoon or early evening hours on December 25. In the western United States, the closest approach will come before sunset just as darkness falls!
