Every freeper should have already cancelled their membership, and now you should start calling any and all of your friends to tell them to cancel theirs

Righteous legislation needs no waivers.

Everything Øbama has done is REPARATIONS by other names and deceptive means.

Aaaaaaarrrp, is the sound that accompanies the dry heave you have just before you toss your cookies. Every time I see ‘AARP’, I get nauseous.

There are better entities out there for Conservatives to form relationships with.

Maybe if the waivers keep getting issued Obamacare will be essentially undone without the Courts weighing in, since everyone will have an exemption.

So was Anthony Weiner. Hell, he claimed to have written the bill. And then he applied for a waiver for everyone in New York.

How can the media keep a straight face when they mention Obama?

If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

If Obamacare is adopted, only republicans will have Obamacare.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 21, 2010

Contact AARP Media Relations, media@aarp.org, 202-434-2560

WASHINGTON—AARP CEO A. Barry Rand released this statement following today's passage of the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010 by the House of Representatives:

"We applaud the House for passing this critical legislation to make our health care system work for more Americans.

Well of course they do. They are an arm of the DNC. Everything I get from them, I write on it and tell them to keep their junk that I will never join or take any thing they subscribe or tell people to join. I then mail it back in their pre paid envelope to make them use their postage.

Stuff those envelopes well while at it to add some additional postage costs.

Rubber band the envelope to a brick. Drop it into the mailbox.

That reminds me. Andy Griffith and the entire town of Mayberry will need a waiver too.

What analysis I was expecting to see but haven’t is the comparison to mafia protection money.

The mafia comes in to an area and everyone is subject to a beat down.

However if you give protection money, you get a waiver for the smack down.

This is exactly like that.
