Senior Thoughts For The 21st Century!

Why not put all seniors in prison and all criminals in nursing homes!

Think of it!

  • Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying.
  • Seniors would have constant video monitoring,  and could receive help instantly if they fell or needed any form of  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  and bring their meals to their cell.
  • Family visits would be in a  suite built for that purpose.
  • Full access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education.
  • Simple clothing,  shoes,  slip ers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free upon request.
  • Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
  • Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. radio, and daily phone calls.
  • There would be a board of directors to hear complaints.
  • Guards would follow a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

On the other hand, the “criminals” would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised, lights off at 8pm, and  showers once a week, live in a tiny room, pay $6,000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all!

What say you?

This should really make us think of what kind of world we created for ourselves.

Ham Operators To Commemorate End Of WWII

On the 65th anniversary of the Japanese surrender in World War II, local ham radio operators will try to link up historic battleships that served in the Pacific Theater.
Members of the Azalea Coast Amateur Radio Club will be aboard the Battleship North Carolina on Thursday night. Using original radio gear from the 1940s, they plan to establish radio contact with the battleship USS Missouri, anchored at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, at 9 p.m. local time.
Anchored in Tokyo harbor, the battleship Missouri was the site of the surrender ceremony on Sept. 2, 1945, formally ending hostilities.
“We have been in touch with the USS Missouri and we have set a schedule to communicate between the two ships when propagation is best,” said Azalea Coast club member Charlie Vaughan.
Some of the vintage radio equipment is on loan from an amateur radio operator in upstate New York, Vaughan said.
Now preserved as a war memorial and floating museum on the Cape Fear River, the USS North Carolina was the first American battleship to enter Pearl Harbor after the Japanese attack on Dec. 7, 1941. It participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific and earned 15 battle stars.
