Perhaps he's qualified...he's still there because he's black, imho.
“Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”. Pete Townsend’s immortal words still ring true.
Yeah, that is so highly relevant for an organization to promote the interests of retired persons.
This is all a setup. AARP is alligning lock-step with the administration in order to become the next “Fannie-Mae” of the health-insurance industry. They want to become the administrators of the government insurance program (ie “single-payer”) and have their dachas and other “govment” bennie$.
I got a Robo call from AARP asking me to support Obamacare. I promptly called them to cancel my subscription. They promised to send me a refund of $11.00! Apparently, lots of others are cancelling too.
Well there ya go.
I won't be too upset if he leads AARP over the cliff.
Time to make some changes.
As AARP gets lefter and lefter it is time to get out of this anti-American pro left wing Communist organization.
This looks like pretty good evidence of an appointment staged in advance for the socialization push. It would be a really good time time check all of O’s other appointments to see what else he has in store for us.
Can someone please post the link to the new, alternative to the AARP, so I can send it to my elderly relatives to rip up their AARP cards and join them instead?
American Seniors Association.
I just cancelled my AAPP membership.
AARP is going to lose a lot of membership over Nationalized Health Care, one way or another... They have betrayed their membership.
Wny anybody stays in that organization, I will never understand.
