Wise Up Seniors: AARP Does What is Best for Their Own Pocket Books

For I just read your article demanding AARP to do something for our contributing citizens.

Well citizens of the United States, who pays the head CEO and others in the board room? We do, of course. Is having AARP’s benefits so much more important than having a decent drug plan? Do you pay dues? Do you have insurances for home and property through them?

You seniors are paying them to keep you comfortable and to give you a fair deal. But what if you all decide they aren’t keeping their end of the bargain, which we know they are not?

You stop paying your dues, find another cheaper insurance carrier.

Do you really believe they are giving you the best deal for your buck?

Wise up seniors.

AARP does what is best for their own pocket books. They will not do anything involved with helping seniors without a financial nudge.

They don’t live up to their responsibilities, which is YOU dear senior citizen, not just the board members.

Keep your money! Don’t be afraid to stand up to corporations that are sucking this country dry. Any organization that is in business should think of the customer first, not just another means to fill their own coffers.

That’s supposedly the moral law of the land. It’s people like you and me that helped build this country in the first place, not these people now that are building their future on the backs of those that have done all the hard work in the first place.

What is big business giving back to us anyway?. What are they building for future seniors? These future seniors are people running AARP, lining their pockets now for their future.

I, for one would gladly keep my money in my pocket. All seniors should stand up together and take back OUR rights to live OUR lives in peace and not have to choose between keeping well or eating.

I read a quote one time, the gist of which is “One snowflake on its own cannot do any damage, but think what happens when this one snowflake is joined by a whole sky full of flakes. It can do a lot of damage.”

Think of yourself as one little snow flake standing alone. Let’s get together a whole drift of snow and make a remarkable statement!
