3/10/2011 - Signed up again, and then received an AARP magazine that had a picture of the last President that had so many of our young peope killed for his family's oil. Bush was his name! I dropped the magazine on my doorstep for people to walk on.
I posted something about it on a forum from my home town. They are all in agreement; AARP is screwing the elderly and helping the big corproations get more of your money. We don't need con men like that conning the elderly. I will never renew!!
I was a member of AARP for many years. I scanned the magazine, I was
busy, but I liked
what the said they were trying to do to help seniors. Like many young
seniors, I was too busy to really pay a lot of attention to what was
Below is the first letter with my check for a two year subscription.
September 23, 2003
One of the reasons I havenít renewed my subscription is that it seems that AARP has become obsequious to the officials who are disregarding the common people of this country for their own personal and special interests. It is time to speak up for what is right, and it is not un-patriotic to do so. Where would we be if someone hadnít spoken out at the time of the American Revolution? If there had been a media like we have today, they would have been branded as terrorist and traitors to their country. Fortunately the media wasnít around to do the governments biding as is happening today.
One thing AARP could do to help this country and the common people is to lobby for a law that requires all government officials to pay into social security and stop their full pay retirement plan that the government has. There would be plenty of money for social security if those benefits were put into the social security program. And, if those officials had to depend on social security, as do the rest of the people, Iíll bet there would be a lot of improvements, and they wouldnít take long to implement them.
Iím going to give you another try and re-new my subscription. And I will be watching to see how well you work for the up and coming seniors. I have a large website that gets a lot of visits and I am going to report your progress and also post this letter on the site. I have more suggestions for a better country. You will hear from me. Good luck on your endeavors (I know, I sound like a kook.) After reading this I felt that way too. Letís find out.
